Homemade Date Ketchup | Vegan

March 29, 2016

Who doesn’t love Ketchup? When it comes to condiments its hard to beat ketchup, simply because it goes with everything. But it’s also pretty high in sugar and full of nasty preservatives. I had heard of Date Ketchup before but never got a chance to try it until I realized that making your own ketchup is very easy. And that is how this recipe was born and I said goodbye forever to Felix and Heinz. Ingredients: 1 can of peeled tomatoes…

Braided Easter Bread | Vegan

March 26, 2016

Holidays are a little tricky for many vegans. There aren’t really any traditional foods that are vegan and family members can be a little hard on you. Fortunately  I have a vegan mom and everyone else is pretty open minded, so we always have loads of vegan dishes. But not everyone is that lucky. Nonetheless there are a few traditional dishes that can easily be made vegan, and nobody will be able to tell. This one is a little amended…

Cauliflower Steak on Potato Lemon Mash | Vegan

March 23, 2016

Cauliflower has recently gone from being just another vegetable to one of my favorites, simply because of the endless possibilities it seems to offer. The fact that it comes in not just white but green, orange and purple makes it even more exciting. What I love most about this recipe is how simple it is but at the same time so rich in flavour. It’s definitely going to make its way into my list of dinner staples. Serves 2. Ingredients:…

Veggie Dürüm | Vegan

March 19, 2016

Where I’m from Döner Kebabs and Dürüm are a big thing, you can get them pretty much on every street corner. Needless to say I grew up eating them a lot. So when I first go into vegan cooking a few years back this was one of the first vegan recipes I ever created. For some reason I kind of forgot about it, which is insane because it’s the best thing ever. But know I finally got around to making it again for…

Peanut & Oat Cookies| Vegan

March 10, 2016

This is the second installment of my under 10 mins recipe series. Technically this one takes a bit longer, but we’re not going to count the baking and cooling times :). These cookies require virtually no labor and just one dish (and a baking sheet) and did I mention they only ask for 5 ingredients? Ingredients: 2 c oats 1 c peanut butter 1/2 c chocolate drops (you can swap these for raisins if you want) 1/3 c coconut sugar…

Banana & Quinoa Clusters | Vegan

March 7, 2016

I’m a very lazy person, especially in the morning, so I really like lazy breakfasts that involve virtually no preparation. What I’m trying to say is, I love cereal. Most cereals are pretty nasty though, in terms of ingredients. I almost bought a carton of weetabix the other day and when I looked at the ingredients I was pretty put off to be honest. So I like making my own. This one is very simple and straight forward. Just dump a…

Savoury Zucchini Pancakes | Vegan

March 3, 2016

I think I found my new favorite savoury brunch option. But of course they are not just meant for brunch. I just had them for lunch and seriously thinking about making them again for dinner. That’s how tasty they are and so satisfying. I used a mix of different gluten free flours and some tapioca, physilum husk and baking powder and It honestly makes them so fluffy you won’t even guess they’re gluten and egg free. SO happy with how…
