Turnip and Almond Foam Soup | Vegan

February 29, 2016

Winter is slowly but surely coming to an end. It’s still cold and rainy enough (at least where I am) that soups are my go-to warming comfort food (yes my understanding of comfort food might be a little different). This one is extra special because it comes topped with a almond foam that makes this soup even more delicious. Serves 4 Ingredients: 1 turnip 3 carrots 2 spring onions 1 tbsp minced ginger 1/2 liter miso stock (you can substitute with…

Stuffed Sweet Potato | Vegan

February 24, 2016

Potatoes are truly life, the perfect food. Not only are they highly nutritious there is also nothing more satiating to me than a potato, whatever kind. Stuffed potatoes are such a classic and pretty easy to put together, it doesn’t even matter what ingredients you have on hand, because potatoes go with pretty much everything. So here is my vegan take on a stuffed potato, filled with arugula and mushrooms and drizzled with a sauce you won’t even believe is vegan.…

Avocado Zucchini Pizza | Vegan

February 16, 2016

In my opinion there is nothing wrong with having a traditional pizza every now and then (vegan of course). But sometimes you do want to change it up a little and nourish your body a bit more. I’ve tried so many ‘alternative crusts’ and this one is definitely my favorite (quinoa crust being the runner up). And avocado as a pizza topping is always a pretty good idea if you ask me. Makes 2 large or 4 small pizzas. Ingredients: 1 large…

Banana & Carob Bread | Vegan

February 12, 2016

Carob flour is something pretty special. Its a flower made from the fruit of the carob tree. It has a very unique and sweet taste, kind of like cocoa but much sweeter and most importantly it doesn’t contain any caffein. For me its become a kitchen staple, because I love the taste and I have pretty easy access to it here in Europe. There are many uses for carob flour one of my favorites is in banana bread. Just so…

I know, isn’t she beautiful? I made her all by myself and she is delicious too, I named her Vegetable Rose Quiche (I’m not very good at coming up with creative names for dishes, sorry). Apart from the assembling part, its a very straight forward and quick recipe. Just throw some stuff into the food processor, bake and repeat. Lets get started! I used a 24cm spring form. Ingredients: for the crust: 2 tbsp ground flaxseed + 4 tbsp water 1…
