I love Mexican food and it’s one of those cuisines that can be easily veganized. Whenever I cook for friends this is my go to recipe. It’s colorful, delicious and letting my friends mix all together to create their own burrito is a great bonding experience too!
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.
