Mushrooms are very tasty especially when you grill them, they get this smoky and rich flavor. I found these big champignons at the supermarket and thought of making steaks out of them. It was so filling and quick to make!
Sikwate is a Filipino drink made with cocoa tablets, water and brown sugar. I used to drink this a lot when I was a kid and it’s perfect with fried bananas. I can’t find the kind of bananas we use for cooking back home here in Switzerland but the sikwate alone can still be enjoyed. I made this sikwate with plant milk which is even more delicious than the original sikwate.
I bought my cacao tablets from the Philippines but you can also use cacao powder since it’s difficult to find these tablets in Europe.
We were just in the Netherlands a few weeks ago and had an amazing time! We visited many places, spent time with friends and of course went to as many vegan restaurants we could during our trip. I was pleasantly surprised how vegan friendly the country is especially Amsterdam. I had a few list of restaurants I wanted to try but on our first night I saw a lot of falafel shops scattered across the city so I had to get some!
Couscous looks like rice but it’s actually pasta made of semolina wheat. You can create different kinds of dishes with it and I made a quick and easy veggie version with my couscous.
I’m so happy that I found pre made Falafels at our local grocery store. You can also make it from scratch (will try to make one soon) but if you can find it at your supermarket then you can make a falafel bowl like I did! It was so unbelievably delicious and was very easy to make.
Pomodoro sauce is quite easy to make so I added some kale, mushrooms and artichoke hearts to make it more interesting and flavorful. It sounds intimidating with all the other ingredients but trust me it’s so quick to make!
Pancit is a Filipino dish and is very popular in most Filipino celebrations like birthdays and fiestas. I usually cook pancit whenever I miss home and my vegan recipe is as good as the original.
A soup is usually an appetizer but not this one! You can have this hearty soup for lunch or dinner and it will leave you full and satisfied. You can also have this with a slice of bread on the side if you wish.
One of the things that really excite us in our travels is finding vegan restaurants we can explore. We recently went to Bavaria, Germany and found one that we loved! If you plan to visit the Bavarian region of Germany you must try Mom’s Table Organic Vegan Restaurant. Located in the city center of Augsburg, on Maximilian Strasse. Their food is bio, organic, gluten free and sugar free too! We ordered a few different things like the Superfood Salad, Falafel Chia Wrap, Buddha Bowl and Dal Soup. The food was really delicious and so colorful, it was really made with love I can tell.
Who doesn’t love pancakes especially guiltless delicious vegan pancakes! These fluffy pancakes are very easy to make and perfect for a weekend morning at home paired with a good cup of coffee.
