Amy’s Kitchen Organic lentil vegetables soup

Veggy Malta tried out Amy’s Kitchen Organic lentil vegetables soup. It is one of a range of vegan and organic soups by this American brand. I tried it out. Whilst I am a soup lover, I usually am not too overly impressed by canned soup yet I must state that Amy’s Kitchen got it right. They actually managed to twin convenience with taste. I mention convenience as this soup just couldn’t be easier to prepare. You really...

It looks, feels and tastes like a bloody beef burger!

Veggy Malta had already visited Le Bistro at the Radisson Blu in Paceville some months ago, yet this time we were invited to try out the new Beyond Burger. Let me be explicit, if you don’t like the taste of meat then don’t eat this burger and choose their vegan burger! The burger came well presented in a big bun, fries and sauce. Nothing special there, yet after tasting, if I wasn’t sure I asked for the vegan burger...

Oodles of Noodles

I am sure we have all experienced this situation at some time : We get back home after a busy day at work and the easiest thing to make for dinner is to grab some instant noodles. I also think that most of us have consciously, or otherwise, promised ourselves to try and eat more healthily, especially by trying to include more vegetables in our daily meals. This does not mean that we have to cook very elaborate meals everyday. Quick...

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...
