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...

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.

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...

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...

Sauerkraut, Gnocchi and Veggie Sausage Stirfry

Look what Germany has done to me! I cannot get enough sauerkraut. This seems like some ridiculous combination that would only make sense if you were pregnant (which I am definitely not), but it seems to make total sense in my current head space. It's very simple:...

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...

Keimling Naturkost Raw Food Products Delivery!

*** Deutsche Version folgt unten*** I've just arrived home after my month in Budapest and as I lugged by suitcase into my flat, I noticed a giant box waiting for me! Keimling Naturkost is the biggest company for raw foods in Europe and strive to make high-quality raw...

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...

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...

Tofutti-Free Vegan Cheesecake

I've had some good vegan cheesecake before, but virtually every recipe I've ever come across has used Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese. As this stuff is up there on the processed scale, I've been searching high and low for a Tofutti-Free recipe. At first I tried this...

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...

Vegan Ramen: 3 Ways

Yes, this is a post about ramen. Don't judge me. I figure since I've been eating so much of it, I may as well write a blog post about it. Some of it is homemade, so I'm not ashamed! The one in the picture above came from a packet though, are you shocked?! Plus,...

Vegan Cheesemaking Guide – Vegan MoFo Day 6

So you want to make your own vegan cheese? Today's MoFo prompt is to write about comfort food - and vegan cheesy things are certainly a comfort food for me! I've had this post sitting in my drafts for ages, so I figured it was finally time to finish it up and post it....

Super Easy Kale “I Am Still Detoxing from New Years” Soup

This is a really simple, one-pot soup that I was imagining in my head after eating so many sweets and drinking so many cocktails that I was fantasizing about vegetables. There, I said it. Perhaps some of you are/were in the same boat as me? The ingredients are really...

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....
