Topinambur Soup | Vegan

Topinambur is a root vegetable also know as jerusalem artichoke or sunroot. Its a pretty cool little root, it actually has 10 times more fibre than a potato and its also pretty high in calcium and iron. The taste is very unique, kind of nutty but not really, its hard to describe but its SO very delicious. I only had it for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I fell in love immediately, so when I saw it at my…

Kale Salad with Sunflower Seed Dressing

I love using sunflower seeds because they are a much more affordable alternative to nuts and still so tasty! I just had to try making a creamy salad dressing using sunflower seeds. This is so yummy! Basically adding any kind of citrusy dressing to kale will break it down and transform it into an awesome salad base. Serves 2 Ingredients: 4 handful of kale 3/4 c soaked sunflowers seeds 1/4 sunflower seeds juice of half a lemon 1/2 c of water…

Spicy Savoy Cabbage Chips

I love making these as a quick and healthy snack. They taste super yummy and cheesy (let’s take a moment to be thankful for the existence of nutritional yeast please!). No they are not potato chips and they don’t taste like them either which doesn’t make them any less delicious though. But if you’re not a big fan of cabbage you should probably skip this one. Because cabbage tastes like cabbage, even if it comes in the form of chips 🙂…

Vegan Coconut Cheesecake

In my opinion vegan cheesecakes are a tricky thing, they either cost a small fortune because the recipe asks for about 200 cups of cashews or they taste weird, really weird (silken tofu probably, its just not my thing) But this one is made from like 90 percent coconut and therefore tastes heavenly. It does need to set over night so make sure you prepare it on time.   I used a 17cm springform Ingredients: For the crust: 3/4 cup of almonds 1/4 cup desiccated coconut…

Beet & Thyme Gnocchi

You want to make your own gnocchi and want them to be pretty and pink and gluten free? Look no further! The only thing you really need is some sort of tool to mash your potatoes and a large pot. Again this recipe is very easy to make and the only ‘skill’ you really need is rolling out and shaping the dough to make them look sort of presentable. Although I kind of failed at this, hence the photos, but we’re not going…

Warming Mushroom Goulash

‘Goulash’ or ‘Gulasch’ used to be one of my favorite dishes as a kid. It’s a traditional hungarian stew that is typically made with beef and/or potatoes. I have never seen a vegan version of it so I thought, I might as well try and see if it turns out good. Well, it did! Mushrooms are always such a good substitute for anything meaty, flavor and taste wise! I used king oyster mushrooms for this recipe, they are my favorite…

Almond Feta Cakes

So basically these vegan feta cakes are all you want from a vegan cheese. They are quick and easy to make, they taste like feta and you can use them in loads of different ways. Like this salad. You can also sprinkle them on pizza or pasta, or other uses for feta that I can’t think of right now. They are also pretty good on their own. Did i mention you only need 4 ingredients??     Makes 4 little…

Never mind but its tasty so try it 🙂     Serves 1 Ingredients: 1/2 cup of brown rice 1/2 avocado 1 cup of mushrooms 2 hands full of baby spinach 1-2 cloves of garlic 1…
