Vegan Street Food in Penang, Malaysia

Vegan Street Food in Penang, Malaysia

I ate so much vegan street food in Penang, Malaysia that needed its own post. While at first I didn't think Penang lived up to all the (vegan) hype, the street food was a game changer. Of course it takes a bit longer to figure out which street food is vegan as most...

WTF are Collards?!: Easy Collards with Potatoes and Tofu

Vegan MoFo Day #1! This was literally something I threw together. I got a bunch of collards in my farm share, and while I think I've eaten them before, I had no idea exactly how to go about making them delicious. I tried Googling things, but everything was either...

Chocolate Banana Almond Butter Pie

Bananas, chocolate and almonds make a good combination. This was another one of those raw recipes that I ended up un-rawifying, but it was delicious as I'm sure its raw counterpart is also. I got it from the blog Adventures of Raw Goddess Heathy, which I am a big fan...

Finally Fudgy Vegan Brownies

It took me for-freaking-ever to find a vegan brownie recipe that lived up to my expectations. I've tried a lot of recipes and this one doesn't even have any weird ingredients like tofu or soy yogurt. After playing around with this VegWeb recipe for a year, I finally...

Apples To-Go: Vegan Apple Hand Pies

Vegan MoFo Day #6! We've been getting a ton of apples in our farmshare, so when my housemate brought back a box of apples from apple-picking, it got a little apple-crazy around here. Afraid that they were going to go bad, one night we sat down, peeled all the apples,...

Marzipan Semolina Pudding (Grießflammeri)

Last time I was in Berlin, I got a marzipan semolina pudding parfait at Goodies that was to die for. Ever since then I've been trying to figure out what was in it (semolina in a dessert...weird) and how to recreate it. I think I finally touched upon it! This is based...

Russian Chocolate Cheesecake (Russischer Zupfkuchen): No Tofutti Necessary!

Vegan MoFo Day #11! This is another recipe I've translated from German to share with you here. The original I found on Twoodledrum's Russischer Zupfkuchen post. Russian Chocolate Cheesecake was the closest translation I could think of for this and although it has...

Caramel Apple Spice Cake with Caramel Penuche Frosting

I made this awhile ago, for my Mom's late birthday present dinner thing (her real birthday was November 15th), but I'm really proud of how it came out so I wanted to post it up here. I haven't updated for over a week (sorry!), but finals were eating me alive and I was...

Vegan Rhubarb Lemon Bars

Wow, it's been awhile! Luckily I'm back with a doozy of a post and something pretty, too! You need pink foods for Spring, right?! Definitely. I've been oogling a lot of vegan lemon bar recipes online lately and though I've, in fact, never eaten a lemon bar, I decided...

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...

Steamed Frothy (Soy)milk and Babka Food Porn

First steamed (soy)milk beverage with my new Aerolatte Milk Frother. Just sayin'. I made a black tea latte, and I'm in love. Thanks Santa! Or rather, my brother. You can buy one of these for as little as $5, but I wanted the one with a travel case and a 5 star rating...

Mock Chickpea Tuna Salad

I had a bunch of celery to use up tonight and was too lazy for anything extravagant. An attempt at vegan mock tuna salad it was! I had made two previous attempts at this dish, one leading to this recipe and the other resulting in a big fail. The latter I blame on my...

The Raw Food Week Challenge

A couple weeks ago I decided to challenge myself to a raw food week, where I could eat only uncooked, raw foods with two exceptions: tea and yogurt. No coffee, no alcohol, nothing cooked for 7 days. The whole time I only had 2-3 cups of tea and a couple small yogurts,...
