You can’t go wrong with a comforting dip and bread. When my boyfriend showed me how to make this popular Bulgarian eggplant dip I was completely hooked. It reminded me of the morrocan eggplant dip my sister in law would make. Time to break a piece of bread and start dipping!…

Spring might have finally sprung but were not done with our comforting warming foods just yet, and what’s more comforting that some hasselback potatoes with a warming garam masala spiced oil.

Who doesn’t love an extra sprinkle of savouriness on top of their pasta!? This recipe is easy, quick and dairy & nut free! We’re leaving the dairy for the calves and went for a more friendly alternative, and since some people can’t have nuts either we skipped those too.
As our base we used…
I’m starting a new segment! One where I’ll be trying recipes and reviewing vegan cookbooks. Over the past few months I’ve been growing an appreciation for all the hard work and effort that goes into creating a cookbook, this is why I’d like to support my fellow vegans who are sharing their recipes with us. So to spread the love and hard work I’ll be sharing some vegan cookbook reviews every single month.
For me the combination of the sweet chocolate brownie and salted caramel sauce creates a perfect balance between salty and sweet. The sauce itself is still sweet, but salty enough to somehow satisfy my savory needs, it’s a magical combination!…
“Raw vegan sriracha?”, “And what’s up with the colour?” Are some of the questions I’m come to mind to some of you, well let me answer those! First of all I love cooked sauces, I adore them, but since my body is giving me signs (eczema) that something’s off I am trying to eat as “clean” as possible. To be honest I don’t even know what that means anymore, to eat “clean”, but one thing that comes to mind are raw foods, so even though I won’t be going fully raw or raw for a month, I will be implementing more raw foods into my diet, which is why this is a fun play on sriracha, but them raw. And if you’ve been following me for a while you might know I have a thing for colour, so that’s why it’s purple!
For many of us sriracha has become a staple, sorry ketchup you’re just ain’t spicy enough, or at all! The thing with sriracha though is that even though I’ll still be using it occasionally I believe that making your own (whatever it is) is always the healthier option.
This sauce can be made as hot as you please, I like mine extremely hot, but know not everyone will enjoy this kind of heat, so I used rawit peppers (aka bird’s eye chili) instead of adjuma peppers in this one, even though adjuma is my fave. The rawit peppers are a bit milder in heat (I still added 4 though) but feel free to add however much you can tolerate, maybe try using chili peppers, which are traditionally used in sriracha. You can also chose to skip the purple cabbage if you don’t care for colour, I mean the cabbage definitely doesn’t add to the taste. Having said that I don’t find it an unpleasant taste, and it does add some nutritional value, and that colour, I love it!
As you can see I used it as a topping for one of my rainbowl, which by the way are a staple in my diet, if you haven’t noticed yet. Since I don’t want to get bored with eating them I create a different (raw) sauce to go along it almost every week, click on these links for the miso/beet sauce or peanut sauce. There will be many more where these came from! There’s something so fulfilling about eating a vibrant and colourful food, yup these kind of meals are good for body, mind and soul!
Don’t get intimidated by the noodles you can find a super easy recipe for those noodles, over here and whatever else to add, that I leave up to you. Let your imagination run wild!
“Another Rainbowl!?” You might ask, to which I’ll answer “of course! And there plenty more coming your way”. It might seem to become repetitive, but trust me, each bowl packs it’s own flavour, offering a new colourful experience. And to be honest you can skip the rainbowl and use the roasted veggies in whatever dish you like, or eat them as a snack, yes they work great as a snack item!
The main components for this bowl are the roasted cauliflower, romanesco and broccoli, but feel free to use only cauliflower. I bought a fun vegetable pack from my local supermarket Albert Heijn (not sponsored), which came with mini white and purple cauliflower, mini broccoli and mini romanesco. You know I couldn’t let that purple cauliflower slip through my hands!
But don’t worry all of these could easily be replaced by one big cauliflower, no need to find the oh so elusive purple cauliflower! This recipe was a bit to spicy for one of my friends, but I don’t blame her since I threw in a adjuma pepper, seeds and all, whoops. So if you’re not blessed with a stomach lined with metal use half a pepper or skip it all together. But by now you must know that almost all of my recipes are open to interpretations.
If you are choosing to go for a rainbowl and want to make some of those colour transforming “unicorn” noodles you can follow the instructions posted here. I personally love creating colourful dishes like this because eat colour has its own beneficial properties, so try to eat as colourful as possible. Eat the rainbow!
