Avocado Mango Makis

Avocado Mango Makis

My absolute favorite Japanese meal – avocado mango makis! Before going vegan I used to eat a lot of fish, and giving that up was probably the most difficult part about my transition. On the plus side, a lot of Japanese restaurants serve makis stuffed with veggies, like cucumber, mango, red pepper or avocado, so I […]

Chickpea Omelette Bake

Chickpea Omelette Bake

Since deciding to try eating less gluten ( which in all honesty is not going very well because I’m not as strict with myself as I should be ), I’ve started using more chickpea flour in my cooking. I love coating vegetables with it! Oddly enough, it also has this unexpected eggy flavor, which makes it great […]

Carrot Soup

Carrot Soup

What’s invisible and smells like carrots? Bunny farts!! No worries, this post isn’t about bunny farts! 😀 But it does have to do with carrots, carrot soup to me more specific. I’m absolutely in love with this recipe. It’s so simple, yet so delicious. It’s one of the easiest meals to make if you ask […]

Stuffed Avocado Shells

Stuffed Avocado Shells

Aside from the fact that they are pretty expensive, or that one in 3 is either too raw or half spoiled, avocados are actually pretty great. You can eat them just as they are with a bit of oil and sea salt, stick them in a salad, use them instead of butter in your baking, smush […]

Spinach Beetroot Quinoa

Spinach Beetroot Quinoa

 Yes folks, gluten can be a bit unkind to your health if you eat a lot of it. In all honesty, I haven’t been able to cut gluten out of my diet entirely, but I try my best to find alternatives to wheat whenever I can. For example, I buy rice bread instead of regular bread, […]

Fava Bean & Pea Patties

Fava Bean & Pea Patties

There are so many delicious things you can make with a food processor, from dips and sauces, to raw desserts and ( a personal favourite of mine) yummy veggie patties. 🙂 Just today I made these glorious fava bean & pea patties, and served them with a cucumber salad. You can have this lunch ready in under 10 […]

Yellow Zucchini Jelly

Yellow Zucchini Jelly

The other day I had a crazy moment of creativity ( maybe it was just a crazy moment). I was thinking, if you can use agar agar to make vegan cheese and fruit jelly, why not use it to make a savoury jelly to use as a spread for sandwiches? I had some yellow zucchini sitting in […]

Creamy Pesto

Creamy Pesto

Ok so, unfortunately “traditional” pesto is made with Parmesan cheese and Fiore Sardo (also a cheese made from sheep milk), so a lot of the pre-made stuff you find at the supermarket will most likely not be vegan. On the plus side, this just means you’ll have to make your own pesto at home, so more […]
