Sometimes you just need to indulge yourself with some delicious chocolate cookies, right? The past week i’ve been working on a recipe for gluten free cookies using chickpea flour as a base. One thing you should take in account while making the cookie dough is that raw chickpea flour tastes horrible, so don’t taste the dough! These cookies are so good i can eat a whole batch in just one sitting, so make sure to make these to share with others, or you’ll find yourself, just like i, devouring a whole batch of cookies….

Since I went vegan I never really missed eggs to be honest but it still is fun to recreate non vegan recipes to make them cruelty free and healthy. Ok you cant really say this is a flawless recreation, but it gets close to a omelette (without the cholesterol). The main star of this dish is chickpea flour also known as gram, besan or garbanzo bean flour is one of my kitchen essentials. This flour is super versatile, you can use it to make cookies, pancakes, bhajis, burmese tofu and even face masks, and for all of these and more i will be posting a recipe in the future. …
To be honest i’ve never been a real sushi lover before i turned vegan, the thought of eating raw fish just never appealed to me. That was until about 6 months ago when i decided to give sushi another try (this time completely plant base of course) and i’ve been hooked ever since! The thing i love about sushi is how fun it is to make and eat, plus its simply delicious.
This week i want to share my recipe for delicious rainbow maki, cause we all want to taste the rainbow. Sushi is another one of those dishes that allows you to let your creativity flow and use your imagination. I mean you can basically fill it with whatever your heart desires.
Before i made my first attempt at sushi i felt very intimidated, i was under the impression that it would take a long and difficult process to make. This doesn’t mean its super easy cause sushi making is an art of its own, and although i’m an amateur i can still make a tasty sushi, and so can you!
Like usual this recipe is open to interpretations, so feel free to mix and match with the ingredients. If you don’t like bell pepper just leave it out, or are you feeling bold? why not add some pickles? you can really add whatever ingredient you love. I used different coloured vegetables because i’m a unicorn and wanted to create a “rainbow” sushi.
I also decide to add some deliciously marinaded tofu. I made my marinade from scratch, but feel free to use your favourite store bought marinade. When you are using my marinade you can also tweak the recipe according your own taste. If you don’t like the heat just leave out the sriracha, or maybe you just don’t have black salt, don’t worry, just skip it.
I hope you all will enjoy this recipe as much as i did, now invite some friends and make some sushi.
