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.…
When it comes to comfort foods noodles are one of my favourites, no matter in what form or shape them come. A noodles soup, salad or stir fry, I love them all! For this bowl I used a veggie packed udon noodle stir fry with tofu from the tofu stew we made earlier this week, some veggies and massaged purple cabbage to create a well balanced bowl filled with colour and flavour.
You can find the recipe for the tofu by pressing this link.…
Throughout the years tofu went from one of my least favourite foods to one of my favourites! Growing up my father did his best to raise us on a macrobiotic diet, but I wasn’t feeling it, nope this boy didn’t want boring tofu. This I hear often as my lifestyle took a drastic turn and now I’m sure my body is about 30% tofu. Just kidding folks, I eat a wide variety of foods!
Look the soy debate is an ongoing one, but I personally…
“But what can I eat when I eat vegan?” or “Isn’t it hard being/eating vegan?” are some of the question I get asked frequently, this is why I created these bowls as an answer to these questions, showing the abundance you can have when choosing to eat vegan. I’d also like to show that…
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.
Who doesn’t love pizza, right? Today I created an easy and comforting pizza recipe for you to try at home. It’s a mushroom pizza with an Asian twist, making use of good quality soy sauce and other Chinese essential ingredients.
Many of you might not know that some of my roots lie in China, I know I don’t look it. My family is a fun mix of different ethnicities and Chinese is one of them, this is why I draw a lot of inspiration from Chinese cuisine. What has Chinese cuisine in common with pizza? Nothing! But I still felt the need to mix these two popular things to create something delicious….
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…
This recipe is a big contradiction for beet haters, because you’ll probably love it! I myself do not like beets whatsoever, the closest I get to eating beets is using the powdered form as a food colouring or eating the occasional beet chip, but raw or cooked beets? No thanks! Now as someone who’s always open to giving foods that I know are healthy, but don’t really like, a second chance, I decided to not give up on beets! One thing that also caught my attention is that the more I eat of these foods I do not like, the more my taste buds get used to them, to the point I can even start craving them!
Noodle salads are one of my go to dishes when I want something fast, filling and delicious, all you need is a tasty sauce and some colourful veggies to turn it into a meal! This is definitely a quick and easy recipe. It took me about 3 minutes to whip up the sauce and not much more to chop the veggies, you could all of this while the noodles are soaking and by the time they are done you’ve got yourself a meal. You could possible make this colourful rainbow noodle salad in less than 15 minutes, lets make it a challenge!
Just like many people like to dress up during halloween, well be dressing this salad up with a dark satay sauce, made using black tahini, which you can make yourself and you’ll find a little how to by clicking the link. The sauce will turn this once beautiful salad into a messy dark bowl of deliciousness.
Of course feel free to play around with the ingredients by using different veggies or a different type of noodle, I used rice noodles which I coloured with purple cabbage to make it blue and being able to transformed to pink with a few drops of lime. You can find out how to make these noodles by clicking on this link. Unicorn noodles aren’t required but its a fun way to turn a regular salad into a Harley Quinn inspired salad, perfect for Halloween!
Now lets start cooking! And as usual feel free to leave a comment below or to tag me into your recreations on Instagram. Bon Appetite!
I’m back from vacation and starting things of slow I decided to make a quick and easy recipe which is also very delicious! The recipe is quiet versatile as you can use whatever vegetables you’d like, for this recipe I used mushrooms, asparagus, carrot, spring onion and baby corn, but feel free to add your own additional veggies like bamboo shoots, mung bean sprouts, cabbage, leek or any other vegetable you prefer. Also feel free to leave out any vegetables you might not have on hand as this is supposed to be quick and easy and should not require additional trips to the grocery stores, ain’t nobody got time for that!
From now on I’ll post a quick and easy recipe every single week for you and for me because it’s always handy having some healthy fast food options on hand, where the only time-consuming part is having to chop my food.
As much as I love vegan instant noodles and noodle soups they aren’t always the healthiest options and apart from a little bit of oil and a pinch of sugar this recipe is quite clean. Now all I need is a perfect instant ramen recipe and I might just be able to resist my favourite brand of vegan ramen, but then again its all about balance right!?
Now let’s get cooking and enjoy some yummy stir fried noodles! And if you are making this for more than just yourself just double, or triple the recipe. And don’t forget to check back in next week for another quick and easy recipe!
