Vegan Kuala Lumpur – A 4 Day Layover in Kuala Lumpur

This is not a guide, so much as a post about how to do a short layover in Kuala Lumpur as a vegan. KL is a major airport hub, but it's worth stopping over for at least a few days for the vegan eats alone. I didn't really think much of KL at all, but decided to stay a...

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...

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.

Rustic Fresh Tomato Whole Wheat Pasta with Almond Parmesean

The American road trip has begun! For the next three months until October 3rd, I'll be driving across America and back, first through the north and back through the south. Thus, you'll be seeing a lot of my travels and the vegan foods I've found during my trip here....

Vegan Cappuccino Muffins

Vegan MoFo Day #4! It took two tries to perfect this recipe, but holycrap are they delicious. The first time they came out tasting good, but didn't rise at all, which I attribute to a wet:dry ratio with too much, well...wet. Oops! I didn't account for the fact that...

Chocolate Apricot Scones, Homemade Coleslaw and Chickpea Scramble!

Vegan MoFo Day #14 A break from your regularly scheduled programming to bring you...food from other peoples' recipes! I spent today getting an emergency root canal and as half of my face is still numb, there were not many cooking adventures in my life. This also gives...

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...

Stale Bread? Nahhh. Croutons!

This is more of a tip than a recipe, get ready! So whenever I bake bread there are always the sad, mutilated pieces unfit for sandwiches that always happen because I use a bread knife that's cheap and not sharp enough. I then put all the mutilated pieces on a plate...

Quicker Pierogies Using Wonton Wrappers!

Vegan MoFo Day #10! Back into the realm of Polish food, we have one of my favorites: Pierogies. Dudes, when I was in Krakow this year there were literally 24 HOUR PIEROGIE PLACES. Heaven! The idea of a pierogie is simple, you have a basic flour dough wrapper, with...

First Attempt at Homemade Ethiopian Food

I am addicted to Ethiopian food. There, I said it. It is just so good, but going often to the Ethiopian restaurant can be expensive and since I've banned myself from eating out except for birthdays networking and the occasional Vokü here in Berlin, I had to find a way...

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...

How to Successfully Veganize Boxed Brownies (And Make Your Vegan Friend Happy)

That's right. You'd think it'd be easy, but more often than not you end up with an oily pile of brownie goo instead of delicious fudgey brownies. You'd think making something from a box wouldn't be that hard, but think again! I recently discovered this trick after...

Bratapfel (Baked Apple)

Vegan MoFo Day #17! Last January, I worked on a smallholding in Kleinenhain, Germany for 2+ weeks through Help Exchange. Of the three farms I worked on, my time in Germany, by far, left the biggest impression on me. My hosts, Angelika and Axel, not only cooked vegan...

Raw Strawberry Cheesecake

I'm back. Mostly I've just been cooking stuff I've already posted on here, but I saw this recipe on the Post Punk Kitchen Blog and it looked really interesting to me for some reason, so I had to try it. Thus, this is not my recipe at all, but it's pretty tasty! I put...

How to Turn Bread Flour Into Meat: Seitan, the Old-Fashioned Way (A Visual Adventure)

Vegan MoFo Day #12! So these picture may be from back in February, but no matter! My friend Gulliver from Herbivorus Rex visited me awhile back, and he is my kitchen soul-mate and much braver than I, as he managed to turn flour into veggie meat, while I always cheat...

My Carry-On Only Packing List (Europe Friendly)

I've been holding back on this post as I wasn't sure if the world really needed another packing list. However, as someone based in Germany, I was SO tired getting excited by an item on someone's packing list...just to realize it's only available in the United States....
