RECIPE: LOADED VEGAN JACKET SWEET POTATOES to please even meat-lovers!

I don’t see myself as a militant vegan. Sure, I think the world would be a better place if everybody started eating (more) plant-based foods and reduced or diminished their animal products intake, but I understand that that transition isn’t easy. One of the things I like to do therefore, is show meat-eaters how tasty…

RECIPE: VEGAN MANGO CHEESCAKE – light and airy, with passionfruit

I love baking cakes, and even though I like a rich chocolatey cake or cakes with lots of spices, I think summer asks for lighter and fruitier options. I especially love the flavour of tropical fruits like mango and passion fruits. I think they go well into a fruity and light dessert with a mousse…

VEGAN LEMON POPPY SEED CUPCAKES WITH LEMON CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

I love the fresh smell of zested lemons. The freshness just really lifts my spirit. One of my favourite flavour combinations with lemons is poppyseeds. Not only do the flavours go well together, I think that incorporating poppy seeds in recipes adds that extra bit of crunch. In this cup cake recipe, I used quite…

VEGAN OIL-FREE APPLE PIE GRANOLA

VEGAN ICE CREAM REVIEW: Oppo very almond berry

I love trying out new vegan products, especially ice cream. I have previously tried several kinds of (low calorie) ice cream, some with more success than others. I enjoyed the Alpro 360 flavours that I tried (see HERE), while the different Halo top flavours were less of a hit (especially the salted caramel flavour, see…

VEGAN PRODUCT REVIEW: Halo Top peanut butter cup vs. Alpro 360

I know that this is a stressful time for everybody, with all the uncertainties that the new coronavirus, COVID-19 brings. Everything in our every day life is affected, including shopping for groceries. I understand that getting the basics is difficult enough, let alone be able to spend that extra bit of money on luxury products…

RECIPE: Quick vegan pumpkin and swede soup

I hope you enjoyed my roasted tomato soup (which can be found here), which I made for a meal-prep two weeks ago. This week I am back cooking soup to meal-prep lunches for the week with another warming soup. Since it is still quite cold, I thought I would use some nice pumpkin (bottle gourd,…

REVIEW: vive vegan protein bars

I know it is not “Veganuary” anymore, but I am (mostly) vegan anyway, so when I came across this add for a new vegan protein bar, I had to try it. Vive is a brand that offers protein powders, protein bites and protein bars. Recently, they had an offer to try their three flavours of…
