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...

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...

Sourdough Bread: Definitely not a bad way to start a morning…

A sourdough cinnamon sugar loaf on the left, fresh rosemary with olive oil and garlic on the right. Don't be too impressed, I just made one recipe, split it into two loaves and kneaded different things into each. I let it rise for two days (3 times), but only because...

How to Make the Most of Your Pumpkin: Everything But the Stem

It's that time of year and as far as I can remember, I've never done anything with a pumpkin besides carve a face in it and let it rot outside. Thus, with two sugar pumpkins around, it had to mean roasted pumpkin seeds, fresh pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie! It took...

Vegan Rosemary Potato Flatbread

 I'm on a roll with these flatbreads, I know. This one is inspired by one of the famous squats in Berlin, Köpi, which has a monthly vegan pizza night on the first Saturday of the month. Here you get a brick-oven pizza (Steinofenpizza) for 2,50€ and vegan cupcakes for...

Thai-licious Vegan Massaman Curry

I took a risk last time I went out for Thai food and strayed away from my beloved Pad Thai to try some Massaman Curry my friends recommended. It was definitely a good decision, this stuff was gooood. Sadly, my wallet keeps me from indulging in this delicacy as...

How To Use Dried Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP)

Maybe I am a bit slow, but it took me a really long time to figure out what the eff to do with dried TVP. It's one of those magic vegan things you see everywhere...textured vegetable protein...like nutritional yeast, and I wanted to be in the club too! Horrid...

Brownie Cheesecake With Coffee Frosting

Vegan MoFo Day #15! It was my friend and former flatmate from Prague Andrea's birthday today and her and her boyfriend Vojtech were visiting us in Berlin for a long weekend. Yesterday Vojtech and I schemed a secret birthday cake plan every time Andrea went to the...

Vegan Turkish Kabak Yemegi

Vegan MoFo Day #2! While visiting a good friend in Bonn, Germany, in January, she made this for us and I promptly scribbled down the ingredients in my travel notebook of sorts. In the little ramekin is plain soy yogurt. Normally, I'd eat it with something more like...

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...

Raw Kale Avocado and Chickpea Couscous Salad

I made this for a picnic when it was still nice and sunny out and it was a big hit! Who would have though a couscous and kale salad would get so many comments! I needed something that only used things in my pantry and balcony garden and voila! This was the recipe! I'm...
