Animal Talk 04 – Pet friendly rentals

Rentals, sales or property and pets: What people looking for property should know if they want to or have pets.

Those who do not wish to have pets might shrug it off but if you have pets you need to know your rights before agreeing to this. Once...

Peanut butter and banana porridge

Bringing breakfast back I’m sure we have all heard the old saying ‘Eat breakfast like a King, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper’ at some point in our lives, but as our lives get more hectic and our social lives are more focused around dinners, we tend to end up skimping, or, even worse, completely skipping the most important meal of the day – Breakfast! While I am not a nutritionist or dietician, I...

Protein packed, vegan meatballs

Plants and Protein ‘But… if you don’t eat meat, where do you get your protein from?’ This is a question I got asked all the time when I first started moving towards a plant-based diet. This was around 7 years ago and I did not have all the answers.  Going plant-based was new to me, something I was doing because it made me feel good and it felt like the natural way to go as I started exploring clean living....

Risotto, endless variations on a theme.

Risotto, endless variations on a theme.

I love risotto, but until some time ago I only ate it in restaurants as I always thought it was very difficult to cook. Traditionally the rice to use in your risotto would be arborio or carnaroli. When I used these types of rice I found that it took a long time to cook, and sometimes ended with it still being too firm for my liking.  So I started experimenting with parboiled rice. This rice cooks quicker, so it was easier for me to...

Soup, Glorious soup.

If I had to be totally honest, winter is not my favourite time of year. I am more a summer person. But one thing I love about this season is that I can spend hours in the kitchen cooking my favourite comfort foods. I absolutely love soups. Any type of soup, and I am always experimenting with different vegetables, grains and legumes. The following is a soup you can serve at a nice dinner party, make into a main everyday meal or have...

I believe that 2019 will be a great year for the veggy movement

Happy New Year to all our readers. It’s that time of year when you look forward at the fresh new year and at the same time look back at what you did last year.

We think of fresh beginnings, new starts and we all try to look forward (hoping for better days). I would like to look back at 2018...

Valsoia’s Pizza con Verdure griliate

Veggy Malta tried out Valsoia’a Pizza con Verdure griliate (Pizza with grilled vegetables). Although it gives the impression that it has mozzarella on top, Valsoia’s Pizza con Verdure griliate is a vegan pizza! That is because the pizza is topped with Valsoia’s Gustosino just as their other pizza, the Pizza Margherita is. Both actually are 100% vegan, dairy free and obviously lactose free. The lack of dairy has no...
