I stopped drinking coffee (for various reasons), but I still eat coffee cake! This vegan hazelnut-chocolate-coffee cake is low in sugar – so it doesn’t taste too sweet – and can be made gluten-free. You can also leave out the hazelnuts in case of an allergy, and play around with the amount of sugar you add.
Last year I traveled to Mexico and was surprised by the amount of vegan food (and especially vegan tacos) I found there. In Mexico City, there is a food court with different restaurants, and one of them served the most amazing vegan tacos and tamales.
This is a recipe I’ve been making multiple times per week in the last month, it’s so good! And the best part about it: it’s so easy to make, you don’t need a lot of time and energy. All you need is a package of flavored tempeh, rice noodles, broccoli and some sauces and spices.
No, I wasn’t one of those people who started baking banana bread religiously during the pandemic. I’ve always loved banana bread, but I’ve never had the perfect recipe, I always ended up trying different ones. But now I’ve finally honed in on a recipe and perfected it.
This fresh salad is inspired by the flavors of South America and is perfect as an appetizer or side dish for a summer meal. It doesn’t look like much, but I promise you the flavors will win you over. Just give it a try!
Now that the terraces have opened again in Amsterdam, I have put together a list of my favorite vegan (friendly) restaurants and cafés for you. These are the places I go to most often. Unfortunately, some of my favorite restaurants have closed during the pandemic, but luckily there are still so many good options in the city – let me know in the comments if you’ve tried any of them!
The blue saga continues. After creating this beautiful Blue Mylk, I wanted to test a few more recipes with the blue spirulina powder I have at home. My mom sent me a recipe from a cookbook she recently bought, which is this blue cauliflower soup.
If you’re following my Instagram or have looked at this blog before, it’s easy to see that I’m a pancake lover. On the weekend, when I have time after a nice long yoga session, I whip up a stack of pancakes that keeps me full for half the day.
To be honest, I don’t like the taste of parsnip. Which is exactly why I love this recipe so much: the miso sauce has such a rich and savory taste that it overpowers the taste of the parsnips. This recipe is an easy vegan recipe for starters, and a delicious way to get your veggies in.
As you can probably tell from the recipes on this blog, I love colorful food and experimenting with colors. This passion was fueled even more when I received the book Unicorn Food, in which Kat Odell put together healthy and colorful recipes, including her beautiful ‘unicorn milks’.
