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...

Vegan Chiang Mai Guide

Vegan Chiang Mai? I got you covered. I spent almost 3 months in Chiang Mai in January - February and May 2018, and I LOVED it so much I came back again in May. I wasn't sure if it would live up to the hype, but ultimately it did. My first month I wasn't sure, but by...

Vegan in Bangkok, Thailand

Hellooooo vegan Bangkok! I've been in Thailand since January 4th, and my first stop was Bangkok to chill for a few days and get over my jetlag! I've been stalking all the vegan bloggers' Thailand posts for aaaaages, so it was exciting to finally get over there myself...

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.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

The same day of pumpkin everything,  I was craving candy. Saying as it was the day after Halloween, I was feeling a bit left out compared to everyone that could go door-to-door filling bags with pure sugar. I wanted to gorge myself on candy too, dammit! Why are all...

Savory Mochi or Rice Flour Gnocchi

Vegan MoFo Day #11! Yes, you read that right. Savory mochi (rice flour gnocchi). We're talking garlic, onions, peppers and olive oil, kids. Get ready. Some of you may remember my foray (read: obsession) with the rice gnocchi I could buy in Prague. I was really...

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...

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...

Pizza!

A bit of a delay due to moving back into school and all that, but here I am with the first of not one, but two posts! First, some pizza! Okay, so all I did for this one was chop up the veggies and grate the "cheese", but it came out so well! I think I finally mastered...

Sweet Potato Coconut Garlic Mash

This happened by accident this morning. I'm experimenting with eating more gluten free things, or rather, trying to drag myself out of the spaghetti-filled haze I got stuck in since winter due to lack of time and brain space! I'm not usually a big fan of sweet potato,...

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 & Shop...

Nom Nom’s Vegan Chicken Noodle Soup

This vegan chicken noodle soup is the easiest thing to make ever. I often throw a me-sized bowl together, which is actually pretty large (see above), but it's soup, right? My apartment is real cold, kids, don't judge. If I'm constantly ingesting warm liquids it makes...

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...

Guest Post: Mashed Peas with Sauerkraut (Erbsenbrei mit Sauerkraut)

Deutsche Version folgt unten! Over a year ago, I stumbled upon Carola's blog, twoodledrum, because of her Sauerkraut Spaghetti recipe. Since then I've bookmarked her site and check back often and have been following her recent Use Up-Along in an attempt to convince...

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 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...
