Easy vegan stir fry

Basic vegan stir fry with tofuI almost never use recipes for my stir fries anymore. So thought I’d share my super simple general method, that you can make endless variations on. For example, replace the tofu with vegan chicken pieces or chickpeas, choose other vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, leeks, carrots etc.) and change up the sauces. Your stir fry can be […]

Vegan steamed rice cheese

I’ve tried many times with different ingredients and methods and this steamed rice flour based cheese is the closest I’ve come. It has a lovely firm texture that allows it to be grated […]

Tofu feta

Tofu feta veganGood old tofu feta! It’s a really tasty and easy cheese substitute, especially if you use a nice fresh tofu, don’t skimp on the flavorings and give it time to marinade. It’s high protein and a good source of calcium. If you really want to go all-in, make your own tofu first! Of course it […]

Apple-walnut cake

Apple walnut cake vegan recipeThis cake is wonderfully moist and fluffy, a perfect example of apple sauce as an egg replacer (and a perfect way to use up leftover applesauce). The walnuts give it a lovely flavor and crunch, but the cake still tastes good if you leave them out. If you want to make this cake a little […]
