Greek Food That’s Vegan. Part 2. Φασολάκια (Fasolakia)

Just as promised this is part 2 of my Greek series. This this dish is called Fasolakia and its a very popular greek side dish, its basically green beans cooked in tomatoes, water and oil. But it is just as delicious as it is simple. Typically in Greece meals are not served in different courses for everyone on different plates. Usually there will be a whole bunch of side dishes put on the table for everyone to help themselves before…

Greek Food That’s Vegan. Part 1. Γεμιστά (Gemista)

A lot, or most of you probably don’t know this but I am part greek from my fathers side. So you can imagine how much greek food I have eaten in my lifetime so far. A lot! One thing I have discovered about the greek kitchen since I went vegan is that although they have loads of fish and seafood, it is a very vegan friendly cuisine. With many options pretty much everywhere you go. And if you don’t overdo…

Raw Vegan Pad Thai

I love Pad Thai so much, when I was in Thailand I pretty much lived of it, until I got food poisoning, but thats another story. Traditionally Pad Tai is made with fish sauce and sometimes even eggs, so if you’re going to order it in a restaurant make sure to ask if they can make it without these ingredients. For my Pad Thai sauce I included some of the traditional ingredients like tamarind, which not every supermarket will carry but…

Technically I’m sure this recipe will also work with frozen strawberries, but why not take advantage of the fresh ones as long as they’re still available? This recipe works perfect if for any dinner party or…

Sweet Potato Curry with 3 sides

I have a kind of weird relationship with curry. When I was a student I used to live in London together with my brother and our diet back then was pretty nasty to say the least, it mainly consisted of of sushi, burgers, pizza and loads of diet coke.  Every know and then however I would make us some curry from scratch. I would get all the proper spices and get really into the process of adding them at a certain time,…

Sweet Potato Waffles

If you follow me on Instagram you are probably no stranger to the fact that I love breakfast. The shortage of breakfast recipes on my blog however is inexcusable, so this one is long overdue. Everyone loves sweet potato and everyone loves waffles, so combining the two together is definitely a recipe for success (pun intended). This delicious combination of sweet and savory is the perfect addition to any brunch or if you’re just feeling a bit more extravagant for your weekday…

Pistachio ‘Mars’ Bars

These delicious little treats are the perfect snack whenever you’re craving something sweet. And most importantly they are made from pistachio & salted caramel covered in chocolate, do I need to say more? I also decided to add some cinnamon into the mix because pistachio and cinnamon happen to be a heavenly combination, which I just discovered recently. My favorite thing about this recipe is the fact that it proofs how simple it is to create sweets using just a few ingredients that…
