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.

The Raw Food Week Challenge

A couple weeks ago I decided to challenge myself to a raw food week, where I could eat only uncooked, raw foods with two exceptions: tea and yogurt. No coffee, no alcohol, nothing cooked for 7 days. The whole time I only had 2-3 cups of tea and a couple small yogurts,...

Basic Sourdough Bread

It's a wonder I haven't committed this recipe to memory yet. I'm not really sure why I haven't posted this, but this is the recipe I use to make my basic sourdough loaves. I've come a long way from my first attempt, let me tell you, which was not much more than a...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Ghanaian Red Red Stew (Gluten-free)

Here's a recipe for you all after tons of travel posts! I actually made this during the winter, after being inspired by a similar dish at the Berlin Street Food Thursday. I had some black-eyed peas sitting around and I didn't know what to do with them. I found this...

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...

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 Dumplings and How to Steam Things without a Steamer Basket

A week ago I realized the obvious: You don't need a steamer to steam things. Also, you can use wonton wrappers to make things besides wontons! The novelty! This made the possibilities of my wonton wrappers endless! Not only could I make dumplings, I could make...

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 Peanut Butter Mousse Cup Pie

I've been posting a lot of desserts lately. Can you tell I like chocolate and peanut butter? No matter, this is possibly the best dessert I've ever made. The best part is I made it up all by myself! Oh. My. Gosh. was this fabulous. [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:12] After the...

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...
