Whenever the pasta craving hits, more often than not I go for either a tomato-based sauce or something cheesy and it always hits the spot. There are so many possibilities to create cheesy sauces, but this potato & carrot based one is my favorite. It’s oil-free and healthy, yet so unbelievably creamy and absolutely satisfying. You can use whatever veggies you like, but I recommend broccoli as it goes really well with it. I also love to have some fresh baby spinach or mixed greens on the side.
If I had to pick one favorite cuisine, it would be Asian. I just never get tired of all the endless delicious combinations of rice/noodles, vegetables, tofu/seitan and sauces. One dish i would have on a regular basis before going vegan is definately pad thai. A good friend of mine – who’s spent a lot of time in Asia – cooked it for me once and it was love at first bite. It took me a while to get it right, but I finally managed to create a vegan version reminiscent of the one I used to eat before and that – most importantly – even my boyfriend approves of 🙂
French toast is another breakfast classic and favorite of mine. It’s kinda like a pancake, yet it isn’t – and so very delicious in its own way. I have to admit, though, I’ve never actually tried the “real thing” and only know the vegan version, but I was hooked from the start. It won my breakfast-food-loving heart over in no time and I’ve been having it on a regular basis ever since.
Oatmeal has quickly become one of my favorite breakfasts. It’s quick & easy to make, very versatile and super delicious to boot. Hard to imagine now that – before going vegan – I wouldn’t even consider having something like this as a meal. You live and learn, I guess ^^
Ever since I realized that kale could be made into chips, I’ve been baking pretty much every kale I got my hands on into these crispy little bites. Unfortunately, that’s a rather rare occasion, so you can imagine my excitement when I spotted kale in the produce section of my grocery store. And it was perfect timing too – with exam week coming up and lots of studying to do, this presented the perfect opportunity to make more of my beloved kale chips as I always like to have something to snack on while studying.
I’ve never been much of a breakfast person, but breakfast food – yes, please!! And this right here is one of my all-time favorites. I mean, who doesn’t love pancakes, right? ^^ Well, granted, making them can be a bit time consuming and annoying, but the end result is always worth the effort 🙂
