Vegan Bali – What I Ate During A Week in Ubud

Vegan Bali, I've been following pictures of amazing-looking food for ages. Even so, I cut Bali out of my itinerary at first. There is just so much hype, and this contrarian can't handle it. Then I realized it would cost be the same in flights to stop over in Bali on...

Melbourne is Vegan Junkfood Heaven – A Semi-Guide

I spent three weeks in Melbourne in February 2018 and let me tell you, vegan Melbourne is on POINT. Especially the vegan junk food. I'm not a clean eating kinda person by any means, but after three weeks even I was craving salads. Not to say there isn't good healthy...

I got in touch with my inner hippy in Pai – Vegan Pai Guide

I loved Pai. Like, really really loved Pai. I actually think some of my best food in Thailand so far was from there, hence this vegan Pai guide. Now, people love or hate it, and most people visiting Chiang Mai seem to end up there at some point. I think how you find...

Recipes

Did you know this page started out as a vegan food blog? Here’s some of my vegan recipe posts. You can check out my Vegan Recipe Index, or my Readers’ Favorites too.

Basic Sourdough Bread

It's a wonder I haven't committed this recipe to memory yet. I'm not really sure why I haven't posted this, but this is the recipe I use to make my basic sourdough loaves. I've come a long way from my first attempt, let me tell you, which was not much more than a...

Vegan Egg Salad: Secret Ingredient = Noodles (Yes, really!)

Over the summer in Berlin, someone organized these wonderful vegan BBQs in the park that lasted all day and were filled with tons of food, hula hooping, music, dancing, yoga, slack-lining, cute dogs and new friends. Someone brought this every time and I LOVED it....

A Good Cuppa Chai

Vegan MoFo Day #16! I had the best chai ever yesterday morning. Previously I'd just throw a chai tea bag in some hot water with milk and call it done, but taking the extra few minutes to simmer it really makes it amazing! I'd love to mix my own chai, but I'm not that...

Nom Nom’s Vegan Chicken Noodle Soup

This vegan chicken noodle soup is the easiest thing to make ever. I often throw a me-sized bowl together, which is actually pretty large (see above), but it's soup, right? My apartment is real cold, kids, don't judge. If I'm constantly ingesting warm liquids it makes...

Famous Tofu Scramble

When I tried tofu scramble for the first time, it was chunky and bland, resembling the large uncooked and "marinated" slices of tofu my dining hall likes to serve as food. Now that I'm older and wiser, I must say my scramble has come a long way too. I've finally got...

Vegan Pear and Garam Masala Flatbread

A few years ago one of my Couchsurfing hosts made us a flatbread with pears and garam masala. It was such an interesting and yummy combination that it stuck in my head for years until I finally recreated it myself here in Berlin. We've already mentioned how I'm...

Fetteh: Yogurt & Chickpea Dish (Veganized)

Vegan MoFo Day #10! Halfway there! This is a recipe I came across on The Hummus Blog and have been meaning to veganize and try forever! Thanks MoFo for the motivation! On one hand it sounds totally weird, chickpeas and yogurt, on the other the photo looked soooo good....

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

The same day of pumpkin everything,  I was craving candy. Saying as it was the day after Halloween, I was feeling a bit left out compared to everyone that could go door-to-door filling bags with pure sugar. I wanted to gorge myself on candy too, dammit! Why are all...

Raw Chocolate Macaroons

Another delayed recipe from my Raw Food Week Challenge. When I originally made these, I used a recipe I found randomly on the internet and didn't save. This recipe called for keeping it in the freezer to keep them solid enough, so I had this stowed away for about a...

Vegan Dumplings and How to Steam Things without a Steamer Basket

A week ago I realized the obvious: You don't need a steamer to steam things. Also, you can use wonton wrappers to make things besides wontons! The novelty! This made the possibilities of my wonton wrappers endless! Not only could I make dumplings, I could make...

Vegan New Years Party Food

I usually throw a party for New Years and this year was no different. I think this one went especially well food-wise. At least, I thought everything was yummy. I don't have pictures for it all, but here's what I made: 1. Pecan Rocha from the Playing With My Food...

Steel Cut Oats Pancakes & Documenting a Pancake Adventure

For those who don't know, I spent most of my year abroad. In fact, these travels have continued now that I'm back in the US, which is what led to this pancake feast in Mystic, CT with a friend who was working there. You can't have brunch without pancakes and there are...
