Vegan in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Spain

From April 1-10 I attended the Digital Nomad Girls Retreat in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, which is a Spanish island off the coast of Africa. It's pretty much perfect weather all the time. It was warm enough to swim in April, without being too hot. In all honesty, before...

Get Shit Done: Cafes in Berlin with Wifi and Vegan Options

So, updates! I switched to part-time in December and now work 30 hours per week and have Fridays off. I'm trying to learn to code, so every Friday I've been parking myself in some cafe to work on the freecodecamp.com curriculum. This means I've been going in search of...

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.

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...

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...

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...

Sourdough Bagels

Okay, so this recipe isn't really my own making as I followed this one over at the Fresh Loaf exactly, but as a pretty amateur bread-baker a lot of the stuff on that post is over my head, so I thought I'd summarize it here with my pictures. For more details, you...

Butterscotch Rice Pudding with Toasted Hazelnuts

Vegan MoFo Day #5! First week, yeah!  Right before I moved away to university, there was an awesome little rice pudding shop in Northampton, MA, that has since closed down. Of course it closed down before I finally lived there, but alas. They had some 20 varieties of...

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...

A Good Cuppa Chai

Vegan MoFo Day #16! I had the best chai ever yesterday morning. Previously I'd just throw a chai tea bag in some hot water with milk and call it done, but taking the extra few minutes to simmer it really makes it amazing! I'd love to mix my own chai, but I'm not that...

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...

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...

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...

How to Successfully Veganize Boxed Brownies (And Make Your Vegan Friend Happy)

That's right. You'd think it'd be easy, but more often than not you end up with an oily pile of brownie goo instead of delicious fudgey brownies. You'd think making something from a box wouldn't be that hard, but think again! I recently discovered this trick after...

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...

The Noms are Back!

Oh hey. It's been awhile. I know I've neglected the blog over the last months, but I have good news...I am BACK! Some big life changes are afoot. I've quit my job, sublet my flat and bought a ticket to Thailand, where I am now. I'll be working on switching over to...
