Yes you read that right, vegan shrimp are a thing. I’ve been buying my at an Asian grocery store in the Netherlands. After doing some digging I’ve found that more Asian grocery stores around the world sell this product. You should find it in the freezer section.…
Bite size snacks like these are a perfect party treat. Whatever the reason may be. Filled with mushrooms, chickpeas and spices these Puff pastry boats pack a punch.…
It’s the new year and I’m sure many of you are trying to eat more clean and/or less animal products, look no further as I’ve got you covered. No you don’t have to give up your favourite foods, and I’m using this bowl to show you exactly that!
This recipe is incredible easy, it uses one of my favourite satay sauce recipes which you can find over here. The entire dish will cost you maybe 15 minutes of your day, which makes it perfect for those busy bees, who don’t have too much time to spend in the kitchen.

Today I’m sharing a recipe in collaboration with Magioni, whom I’ve been working with last month to create some delicious vegan recipes to go with their delicious pizza crusts. This post is not sponsored.
You might already know Magioni from their cauliflower pizza’s. Magioni just launched their new pumpkin pizza crust, which goes perfect with the new season and to celebrate I decided to make an easy and fun recipe to go along this crust. The crusts are available at AH in the Netherlands, but don’t worry, if you don’t have excess to this crust you can make it on any pizza crust available.
The reason I decided to team up with Magioni is because I saw an opportunity to spread even more awareness on a vegan diet/lifestyle. By creating a few fun and creative recipes for them to share I know for sure that there will be many people introduced to a more conscious way of eating.
With Autumn being around the corner it’s time to reintroduce some comforting foods! What am I saying, I’ll have dishes like this in the middle of summer, still they are your best friends during fall and winter. This dish is made for all those beet haters out there, because I’m pretty sure that even you won’t hate this curry! I mean look how comforting this dish is, even teddy is having a moment!
As an adult one of my favorite dishes are curries, this is something that hasn’t changed from my childhood, therefore these dishes instantly transport me to another time. Curries are, for me, some of the most comforting dishes, but there’s another comfort food that’s high on the list. Pasta.
Keen-wah, will you ever leave my teeth? Quinoa is simple one example of the abundance of protein found in a plant-based food. It’s a complete protein that’s actually a seed and not a grain, so if you have a hard time digesting grains, quinoa could be a great alternative for rice or couscous. Now if they’d only stop hiding between our teeth, am I right!?
Now with summer nearing and and BBQ season around the corner it’s about time to bring out the quinoa salads. This salad makes a perfect side dish to any food centred gathering, it’s light, fresh and simple.
Can you believe we’re nearing bbq and picnic season? The weather is gradually becoming more warm and pleasant, and the sun a bit brighter (well at least for us on the northern hemisphere. Oh and yes you can still go to bbq’s as a vegan, it’s all about the sides if you’d ask me! One of the side dishes I always look forward too is potato salad, and not only during bbq’s but any given time of the year I crave this stuff. Now although I love it, it’s not always plant based, so it’s about time to make a delicious recipes we all can enjoy!
Besides potato salad I also have a huge love for pesto, now add those to together and you’ve got yourself a magical dish. It’s truly a simple recipe when you use store bought pesto, which I happened to do for this recipe, just make sure it’s vegan. You could also use this recipe for spinach pasta to sneak some extra greens into your meal….
Beans, oh beans. Beans and stews are some of my favourite foods, always been and always will. Even though I love both, combining the two is where the magic really happens! Look the dish might not look extremely appetising, but the flavour it on point! One of my loved ones called this “prison food”… Well let me tell you this! If they served this in prison, I wouldn’t mind a stay (just kidding, prison sucks). You know sometimes it are the most unattractive dishes that surprise us with their bold and complex flavours, and this dish is definitely one of them! I mean I could try to make it look presentable, but there’s no use, this dish speaks for itself, try it.
This dish is not only extremely delicious, combining it with rice it will serve as a complete protein. So next time people ask you where you get your protein you can simply send them to this post for a yummy protein packed recipe.
As most of my recipe you can totally modify this one to your own taste. You can decide to sprinkle it with some cilantro before serving, or maybe leave out the pepper, it’s all up to you. Also the spinach I added is totally optional, I simply love adding spinach to almost any of my dishes, go ahead and give it your own twist, maybe add some carrots and celery, experiment! And if you don’t like kidney beans, simply swap them for chickpeas, It’s your stew.
Let me know if you liked the recipe in the comments below and if you decide to recreate this dish feel free to tag me on Instagram as I’d love to see your creations!
If you like sushi you will love these bowls! They’re great if you’re feeling a little bit lazy bit still and don’t feel like rolling out that sushi mat. I myself am a big lover of sushi and honestly don’t mind the prepping, but this bowl might win it over those delicious maki rolls, well at least when I’m eating alone that is. There’s just something fun about enjoying a big platter of maki rolls when dining with friends, right!?
The reason I love this bowl so much is that I’m able to pack it with many different ingredients you normally wouldn’t find in a maki roll, such as…
