Asparagus risotto with salty tempeh bacon.

Yes! My favourite season has arrived! It’s asparagus time! Honestly, I could eat these horrible-to-clean vegetables every single day for as long as they’re here 😉 Today, I’m sharing with you my favourite recipe from last season: asparagus risotto! Back then, I wasn’t vegan yet, just vegetarian. I got the recipe for the risotto from…

Flemish classic: “Vol au vegan”.

It’s time to finally share one of my favorite Flemish classics! Of course we turned it into a vegan version. So to everyone all around the world: Meet the beloved vol au vegan! This Flemish classic, originally called “vol au vent” and made with chicken (and sometimes meatballs), is a delicious creamy “stew” that will…

Plant based cheese plate.

Hello again! I’m so thrilled to share this post with you guys! We had a delicious totally vegan cheese plate for dinner two days ago and it was so good! Yet again, I’m blown away by the superior quality and taste of some plant based cheese substitutes. Too crazy for words! Funny fact: before I…

Spicy winter cupcakes with orange zest. 

Spicy spicy! Everything I do and make this week is spicy 😉 As I agree with what the official writer of this recipe says: there’s nothing better than the smell of cinnamon and “speculoos” in the house! That’s why, to stay in these -rather rainy- winter days a little longer, I decided to bake some…

Valentine’s Sushi.

The greatest vegan pizza (with cheesy crust).

Tuesday was Valentine’s Day! Did you do something special that day? We decided to just stay home and have a comfy junkfood night 😉 I had class until 7 pm, so my boyfriend got in the kitchen and prepared these AMAZING vegan pizzas! The love I tasted that night was mind-blowing 😉 Have you ever…

“Salmon filet” en papillot.

Here it is: the ultimate recipe to prepare the Vantastic Foods salmon filet! I must say that we don’t eat that much meat substitutes. I mostly try to cook with as many vegetables as possible. We, for sure, never had tried a fish substitute before (as it’s not very common to find in stores here…

Our first order at Vedge (Ghent).

A couple weeks ago we placed an order at Vedge for the first time. Vedge is a little home-based online vegan store that works with a very nice concept called “crowd shopping”. This is the deal: you order the products you like on their website before a certain deadline, then they contact their vendors and…

Hotspot: MiE ViE Sandwichbar (Ghent)

One of my first biggest “frustrations” when I went vegan, was the fact that there were hardly no places to find in the city where I could easily buy a sandwich to take to class or have for lunch. Before, we used to go to the “mainstream” sandwichbars a lot, because as a vegetarian you…

Lime pie with blueberries and raspberries.

It’s happened. I finally took some time to bake my first vegan pie! I must say, it didn’t go that smooth and the result was not really what I had imagined, but the taste was actually pretty good. The recipe is based on one that I found in a vegan cook book I bought a…
