Berlin Vegan Guide

Berlin Vegan Guide

Vegan Berlin is an exciting place. This list is ever-changing and growing, so check back often! These are places I go to relatively frequently and are my favorites...or I've heard a ton of good things about them. There is so, so much more...to list all the vegan...

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.

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...

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...

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...

Red Quinoa Taco Meat (Gluten-free)

Does anyone else have the problem where they hoard random food items and then end up with a cabinet full of random things and nothing they actually want to eat at that moment? I do it all the time and then I end up with tons of obscure ingredients I don't know what to...

Homemade Flour Tortillas and Vegan Quesadillas

Yesterday when I was too lazy to drive to the store to buy tortillas, I was reminded of my friend Colleen mentioning making her own. Making these babies from scratch was a much more favorable option than trekking the 5 minute drive through the suburbs to Stop &...

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...

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 Chocolate Peanut Butter Rocky Road Fudge: Dormitory Style

All I have to cook with in my dorm/house at school is a microwave and a hot plate somebody graciously left for us to use in the tiny kitchenette. If you've noticed, I haven't posted for awhile. This is why. However, I had a few Sweet & Sara marshmallows left in my...

Raw Cashew Cheese

A bit delayed, lots of people mentioned that they'd be interested in learning more about how I made the raw cashew cheese. Though it takes a couple days, it's really easy! Most of the time you're just waiting for the cashews to soak and letting the finished product...

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,...

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...

Vegan Lasagna

Ignore the crappy picture, I unfortunately left my camera's memory card behind when I made this, so a cell phone picture will have to do until I make it again! This is probably one of the best versions of lasagna I've ever made though, don't let the picture fool you....
