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...

I got in touch with my inner hippy in Pai – Vegan Pai Guide

I loved Pai. Like, really really loved Pai. I actually think some of my best food in Thailand so far was from there, hence this vegan Pai guide. Now, people love or hate it, and most people visiting Chiang Mai seem to end up there at some point. I think how you find...

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...

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 Chicken (Seitan) Salad

Vegan MoFo Day #21 - Vegan Chicken Salad So I thought I was done with MoFo for the year, but then I sort of accidentally made vegan chicken salad and voila! I was in Whole Paychecks, I mean, Whole Foods yesterday because I heard Tofurkeys were on super sale after...

Vegan Chard & Artichoke Dip

Vegan MoFo Day #8! My housemate and I went dumpster diving the other day and managed to acquire 8 POUNDS of artichokes. It was my first time dumpstering and I'm excited to go again! I am pretty proud that this was almost entirely free as the artichokes and onions were...

Vegan Mac-n-Cheese: The Ultimate Comfort Food

My friends rave about this recipe more than than anything else I cook and I've been asked for the recipe more times than I can count. Pleasing to vegans and carnivores alike, lucky you, written it down below for your reading pleasure! While I was abroad in England, I...

Vegan Peanut Noodles

[amd-zlrecipe-recipe:43] This vegan peanut noodles recipe is really easy and super delicious. I actually made it for a hungover brunch...for myself. Here's a question...what do you put in your peanut sauce? I find that everyone makes theirs a little...

Cold Brewed Coffee

Following the thought of "Things That Are Painfully Obvious", a friend sent along a link to me a week or two ago about cold brewed coffee. Now, I had heard of this before, but always assumed it was tedious or complicated and involved fancy equipment. Nope! Previously...

Vegan S’mores Sugar Cookie Bars

You guys, I've discovered the vegan goldmine. You know all that sugar cookie dough you have leftover from the holidays in your freezer (or is it just me)? Make this. Do not hesitate, just do it. Yes, it takes some time, but within it you find chocolate, vegan dulce de...

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...

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....

Vegan Egg Salad: Secret Ingredient = Noodles (Yes, really!)

Over the summer in Berlin, someone organized these wonderful vegan BBQs in the park that lasted all day and were filled with tons of food, hula hooping, music, dancing, yoga, slack-lining, cute dogs and new friends. Someone brought this every time and I LOVED it....

Sweet Potato Salsa

This is a really easy recipe that I stole from my friend Lizzi. Seriously, every time I make it and take it somewhere everyone freaks out over it. It's actually kind of silly because it's one of the easiest things I've made. People never believe it is vegan either,...
