Vegan almond kruidnoten loaf cake with almond extract and Dutch “kruidnoten”. This cake is very light and fluffy. You can use gingersnaps or gingerbread crumbs instead of kruidnoten.
Did you enjoy my Sinterklaas recipes so far? There’s only one week left so we’ve come to my last Sinterklaas recipe of 2017. Boy, time flies when you’re having fun! This last recipe is a vegan almond kruidnoten loaf cake. It’s a fluffy loaf cake with soft chunks of kruidnoten and a strong almond flavor. Now, I’ll be honest with you guys: this vegan recipe isn’t healthy -it still contains sugar- but I promise you it’s definitely a delicious cake. Even if you’re vegan you can enjoy the holidays with yummy baked goodies. In addition, this cake is very easy to make (batter ready in less than 5 minutes!) and you need just a few simple ingredients. Read more
Chocolate cake with ganche drip frosting. Dense and moist. This very indulgent cake is vegan and contains no soy products. Recipe for a small 10 cm (4″) cake which is for 2-3 servings. No binging on leftovers!
Have I turned vegan? No, I have not. But try this chocolate cake and you might. There’s not a crumb in this cake that tastes vegan! It’s dense and so moist. I topped this cake with a vegan chocolate ganache but it tastes good as-is too. Even non-vegans will love this cake. Well.. as long as they’re chocoholics anyway. If you don’t like chocolate stay clear of this chocolate cake because every crumb screams chocolate. Let me break down this super easy (seriously) recipe for you.
Fudgy brownies with chocolate chips and chunks of walnut. These brownies are vegan and can be made without refined sugar. The texture of these brownies are cakey but when you take a bite the brownie will stick like glue to your teeth. Yum. Perfect score on the fudge-o-meter!
Life is crazy at the moment. Trying to balance work and personal, but it’s a bit difficult when each day has only 24 hours. In addition, I want to spend time on treating myself to homemade, healthy food. As I was craving brownies, I decided to test some vegan FUDGY brownies. Now, I’ve shared a recipe for vegan brownies with you guys before. However, that recipe uses tofu. I still believe those are the best vegan brownies ever (soft and fudgy) but as there’s some controversy around soy in your diet, I wanted to experiment on a soy-free, vegan brownie recipe. And this is the version I fell in love with. This recipe makes super fudgy brownies and uses plant based ingredients only. You really have to try these. Really. Read more
Vietnamese spring rolls, also known as gỏi cuốn, turned into a vegan version. These spring rolls are stuffed with plenty vegetables and taste best when eaten with the easy peanut & hoisin sauce. Vietnamese spring rolls are healthy, delicious and make a great lunch or dinner.
What are Vietnamese spring rolls?
Vietnamese spring rolls is a dish everyone with Vietnamese parents knows. Vietnamese spring rolls are often mistaken for chả giò (the fried version). While the rolling method is similar, Vietnamese spring rolls taste nothing like the fried version. Vietnamese spring rolls are light to the stomach and have a fresh flavor due to the use of herbs. They’re often served as appetizers in the Western cuisine, but by making a few more rolls you can easily pass spring rolls for a healthy lunch or light dinner. Traditionally, Vietnamese spring rolls are filled with pork and prawns but you can basically fill it when anything you like. Today, I’m sharing my vegan version with you guys. Keep in mind this post is more of a lunch idea rather than a recipe so see this recipe as a guide and inspiration. Read more
Creamy curry wraps stuffed with vegetables. These wraps are Asian-inspired and are the perfect make-ahead lunch. The wraps taste even better the next day because the flavors are more infused into the chickpeas.
I’ve got a make-ahead lunch idea for you guys today. And it’s vegan! Yup, again. I’ve shared quite some vegan recipes with you guys (brownies, sushi, frappucino) so far but I’ve got to tell you I’m not vegan (yet) though. Currently, I don’t believe in a “one-way”-diet. I like to eat healthy by eating different kinds of meals; sometimes I eat vegan, sometimes vegetarian and on other days I eat meat/fish/poultry. I was inspired to create this recipe when I wanted to make a satisfying on-the-go meal for my dear little sister. She tries to eat vegan most of the time so I was determined to make a delicious vegan meal for her. I’m happy to say, she liked the wraps. Even my bf liked these wraps! And therefor, I need to share it with you guys too.
