Vegan “salmon” and cucumber pasta

This vegan dish is inspired by a pasta my parents made when I was young. Of course, they used real salmon and I believe they used Boursin for the sauce, but I have to make some adjustments. It is a perfect and fresh, simple summer pasta. To make this pasta, you will need a vegan…

Albert Heijn – Vegan apple pie review

Vegan stuff is coming to Dutch supermarkets and I am here for it! Recently, Albert Heijn added some vegan desserts (honestly, I wouldn’t buy them again) and now there’s apple pie! This is just a short review of the apple pie, which I hope will be helpful! The apple pie is 2.50 for two slices,…

Peanut butter/tahini protein cookies – only 50 kcal!

This recipe uses the same first steps as my peanut butter/tahini cookie dough protein balls, but includes baking instructions to turn them into crumbly cookies. The texture of these cookies is not like regular cookies, I have to warn you upfront. They are crumbly, but do hold their shape. Ingredients: 8 grams of coarse brown…

My favourite regular ice cream is probably the Alpro salted caramel and almond, or Ben and Jerries coconutterly caramelled. I enjoyed the Alpro 360 flavours that I tried,…

Easy vegan coffee chocolate mousse – healthy-ish

Is there a better dessert than chocolate mousse? Well, I might have a thing; coffee flavoured chocolate mousse! My parents used to make a coffee chocolate mousse at diner parties, but their version includes eggs and whipping cream if I am not mistaken. Since I try to eat mostly vegan, I wanted to make a…

REVIEW: Alpro barista almond, does it really foam well?

I love coffee. I like it black or with (soy)milk. However, when I do add plantbased milk to my coffee, I am a bit picky. I want a nice bit of foam and I don’t want it to seize (which sometimes happens if the coffee is a bit more acidic, especially with decaf-coffee). Of course…

PRODUCT REVIEW: vegan tuna (good catch)

I recently wanted to test out some (new) vegan products, and one of the products I had my eyes on was a vegan tuna alternative by Good Catch. I had to go to another supermarket (the Plus) to get this, and it was fairly pricey, 3.15 euro’s for 94 grams. One of the things that…
