I tried my first real ramen in Japan last year and it was an experience – sitting around the bar overlooking the kitchen, in the traditional Japanese way. The vegan broth was filled with ramen noodles, tofu, spring onions, herbs and vegetables, and tasted amazing. I knew I had to try making my own ramen once I returned home.
The first time I discovered Poké Bowls was actually after coming to Amsterdam for the first time. I love the taste of vegan sushi, but am too lazy to make sushi myself often and don’t want to go out or order it every week. This sushi in a bowl tastes just as amazing as sushi itself, but is much easier to make, so it’s a quick win for me!
Curry is a classic that everyone should be able to make! This is one of the dishes I did not have to adapt very much when going vegan because the only thing you need to do is leave out the meat or fish. If you want, you can replace it with tofu, but even just with veggies it will taste good.
I love chickpeas because of their consistency and versatility! You can make hummus out of them, marinate them or roast them with spices. Chickpeas are rich in fiber, protein and manganese and can help to increase satiety, boost digestion and help to keep blood sugar levels stable. They are a real multitalent for the vegan diet!
I like meals that consist of just a big bunch of veggies & grains in a bowl. They’re simple, they taste good and they are super nutritious. This thai-inspired bowl packs loads of protein thanks to the quinoa and is a light summer meal!
Sooo….pancakes. 🙂 If you have been following me on Instagram, you have had the pleasure of enjoying my pancake spam in the past few weeks. I basically use every free morning I get to make pancakes and have tried different variations every time!
If you’re following me on Instagram, you probably know by now that most of my lunches and dinners consist of big, colorful bowls of whole foods. Like most people, I don’t really want to spend 1 – 2 hours per day in the kitchen to cook for myself. But I also don’t like pre-packaged or frozen food because I just don’t think it’s healthy and it doesn’t taste good either.
I have been seeing countless variations of protein balls on Instagram – with matcha, chia, spirulina, maca… And you know me. I had to try them myself! So I made a pretty basic version for the start, with chia seeds and peanut butter.
Oatmeal is definitely my go-to choice when it comes to fixing a quick and easy breakfast. Most of the time, I prepare my oats in a jar the night before and then take them to work the next morning.
Hold on to your chair. This cookie dough is actually vegan, only made of 4 ingredients and you won’t believe what the main ingredient is! Don’t judge until you’ve tried it.
