Oatmeal raisin cookies

Oatmeal cookies veganThese cookies are wonderfully crunchy, and store really well. They’re made largely with whole grains and contain only a small amount of sugar, so they are also relatively healthy. Perfect to take as a school or work snack. Feel free to experiment with the mix-ins. For example, try them with finely chopped nuts, dried fruits […]

Turkish fermented pickles (tursu)

Turkish pickles tursuTwo years ago, my mother-in-law’s Turkish neighbor gave us a large jar full of fermented pickles (tursu). She grows the vegetables herself on her balcony and pickles them in the traditional way. David and I liked the flavor so much that I now regularly make my own tursu. Fortunately, it is not difficult at all, […]

Thai tofu curry

Vegan Thai tofu curryThis Thai curry is a new family favorite. It’s a real flavor bomb and surprisingly easy to make, if you get a jar of Thai curry paste. The recipe is inspired by a curry from The Vegan Instant Pot Cookbook by Nisha Vora, a super nice book with lots of tasty recipes that you can […]

Vegan for restaurants and catering industry

Vegan food service workshopsMore and more restaurants and catering businesses are choosing to put plant-based options on their menu. This trend continues during the corona crisis, as food service companies are looking for ways to distinguish themselves and attract more customers. Earlier this year, in collaboration with ProVeg, I created two training sessions for the kitchen teams of […]

Tofu garlic-herb cream cheese

Vegan tofu herbed cream cheeseThis tofu-based cream cheese is a new favorite. It’s like vegan Boursin! It’s a really quick recipe too. Just wizz everything in a high speed blender or foodprocessor, dump it into a container and put it in the fridge overnight to firm up. No long fermentation or hard to find ingredients. It’s a staple in […]

Ethiopian spiced lentil pastries

Spicy lentil pastry vegan sambusaI love bringing these lentil pastries to family gatherings and work potlucks. Even avid meat eaters gobble them up and they are a good high protein option for me and my husband to eat if there are not a lot of other vegan foods to pick from. Be sure to make a big batch, because […]

Unwanted vegan weight loss, what to do?

preventing unwanted vegan plant-based weightlossThe vegan stereotype used to be (and sometimes still is) that we are all pale and thin. Unfairly of course, because vegans come in all shapes and sizes. However, plant foods are generally a little less calorie dense than animal foods, which is why people transitioning to a plant-based diet sometimes find that they are […]

Homemade saurkraut, three flavors

Homemade sauerkraut, flavorsNow that we are at home a lot because of covid, I do one fermentation project after another. Sourdough, vegan blue cheese, kimchi and now sauerkraut! Making your own sauerkraut is surprisingly easy and a nice approachable way to get into fermentation. It is almost impossible to mess up and you do not need any […]

Loaded nacho’s with cheese sauce

Loaded nacho's with homemade vegan cheese sauceWhen I first saw vegan cheese recipes with carrots and potatoes as the main ingredients, I was very skeptical. But then I tried some at a potluck and was blown away by how cheesy this stuff tastes! I now use it on everything, from cauliflower to lasagna, and of course on my loaded nachos. My […]

German currywurst, vegan style

Vegan currywurst bratwurst GermanThis vegan currywurst (sliced bratwurst in a curried tomato sauce) takes my mind straight to Berlin in Germany. The city has currywurst stands on almost every square and in every train station and shopping center. The last time I visited in 2019, many of those places offered a vegan option! It was lovely, and especially […]
