A vegan feast at Naar

Going vegan and going green A few weeks ago I was kindly invited to try out the all-new vegan menu at Naar in Balluta. Yes, Naar has launched a whole vegan menu! They still have their regular menu however the Head Chef has decided to branch out, this means that vegan diners (or reducetarians who want a vegan option) are now spoilt for choice as opposed to having to scout out that 1 nearly vegan dish and ask the kitchen if they can...

Time to start your Christmas preparations.

Time to start your Christmas preparations.

My favourite Christmas sweets are mince pies. There was a time when I used to buy these ready made, both local or foreign. I now have more time on my hands, so in recent years have started to make them from scratch. This way, I know that they are completely vegan and contain no palm oil, which I try to avoid unless it comes from sustainable sources. Now is the time to start on your mincemeat preparation, although there are people who...

BIGILLA …….Full of beans!

The recipe I am sharing today is actually my mum’s not mine. I have never had to make bigilla, as my mum makes a big batch every Friday, regular as clockwork. She makes enough for the household, for my husband and myself, for the priest, the doctor, the neighbour and even the tailor. When non veggies ask me where I get my protein !!! I always jokingly tell them – from my mother’s bigilla. I eat it cold on crackers...

Till now the authorities are denying us and the general public the possibility to see the killing....

Back To The Kitchen. Split Pea Soup.

Now that the weather is getting cooler, it’s time for some serious home cooked meals again. I have said this before, I love soups and cooking a nice big pot of the stuff makes the end of summer a little bearable to me. My husband and I love all kinds of soup, but split pea is right at the top with our favourites. We have it as a main meal with some warm crusty garlic bread, and it is also perfect for lunch on a cold day. I...

Goodfella’s Falafel vegan Pizza

Goodfella’s recently put on the market a new pizza, totally plant-based, their Vegan Falafel Pizza. Without any doubt we had to give it a bite and check out the taste. After tasting this pizza, I would nearly say that it is happened to be vegan, because I believe Goodfella’s focused on creating a tasty (Mediterranean style) pizza which happens to be completely plant-based. Anyone who thinks that a plant-based pizza...
