Vegan Turmeric Spelt Waffles with Baked Apple and Peanut Butter

These waffles are great for a weekend breakfast or brunch. They’re flavorful, healthy and easy to make.

A few days ago my friend Coco came over. She told me how she’s been reading “How Not To Die” and about turmeric. Apparently, turmeric (or otherwise known by it’s active compound curcumin) is a great spice to add to your food. Read More »

Vegan Cranberry-Pistachio Christmas Cake

I love Christmas. People who know me, know this. I love the lights, the music and the ridiculous, yet delightful movies. I also like all the food. Christmas is a food-related holiday, if ever there were any. During December I take full advantage of the freedom to bake and cook Christmas recipes to share with friends, colleagues and family and to practice for Christmas.

Vegan Chickpea Scramble

img_4845.pngThis dish is something I’ve been thinking of for a while but I never got the chance to actually make it. And somehow, online, I wasn’t able to find anything that was really like my idea. So this Sunday, I finally tried out my own spin on chickpea scramble. A vegan alternative for scrambled eggs.

I had this dish for breakfast but it’s also great for lunch (or a lazy dinner). It’s healthy, chock full of protein and customizable to your personal preference. I hope you enjoy!Read More »

Vegan favorites: London Edition

Anyone who knows me, knows I love London. It’s a love that’s existed from the very first time I went there with my parents. Since then I’ve visited London at least once a year, every year and I still love it when I get there. There’s always new things to discover, places that inspire me or people to meet. It is my dream to one day move somewhere just outside of London and be able to enjoy the city whenever I can. London truly is the only place I’ve ever felt at home.Considering my love for the city it’s crazy to think that I haven’t written a post about vegan food in London, yet. There’s just so much to mention! But, I’ve finally gotten to it. It’s a long one, but I just had to show you all the great places. I hope you enjoy, and let me know where you went or want to go in the future. Read More »

Childhood Favorite: Tortilla de Patatas and Aïoli

The recipe below is one of my childhood favorites. Tortilla de patatas, or “Spanish omelet”, is a dish that’s perfect in all it’s simplicity.
Every once in a while my mom would make a big tortilla de patatas and I would just love it. It took me a while to realize I could veganize the recipe and I am so glad I did. Together with the aioli you have yourself a crowd-pleaser.
The aioli is a great condiment with other foods, too. It’s super easy and great for your next barbecue, fries- or nacho-night.

Vegan Favorites: Disneyland Paris Edition

Just two days ago I came back from Disneyland Paris. I LOVED it.

After coming back I figured I should put up another “vegan favorites” blog for my vegan travel series. It’s hard to really call these foods “favorites” as Disneyland Paris is notoriously ill-suited for vegans (but for the sake of maintaining some coherence in this vegan-travel-series the title remains).
It is perfectly possibly to visit Disneyland Paris as, or with, a vegan. You just have to know where to go and what to get.

Vegan Gluten Free Granola

A little while ago I was craving granola. 
But I wanted a gluten free and relatively healthy one as it just makes me feel way better.
With a couple of ingredients I had lying in the pantry I made this granola and it’s been my go-to ever since. It’s crunchy, nutty and a little sweet.

I love having this with a smoothiebowl, soy yoghurt or (my latest obsession) chia pudding, homemade chia jam and peanut butter.Read More »

Every woman should read this book!

Hey everyone,

It’s taken a while but I’m back with a book-post (the last one I posted was when I was still in New Orleans, which means it was over a year ago, which means that I almost had to give up my name “veganandherbooks”).

Today, I want to introduce to you a book that is life-changing, uplifting and inspiring.
I’m talking about Body Positive Power by Megan Jayne Crabbe.Read More »
