Kuhne Italian salad dressing

Summer is approaching and we all tend to eat more salads, though I like a good salad most of the year. The good thing is that salads are quick to prepare and can provide you with a mix of vitamins, minerals and fibre. It is always advisable to try to have a mix of colours in your salad as that ensures a balance of various positive properties that come from vegetables. Also add with some vegan-balls, tofu or both actually. The key to a...

Mushroom and Pepper Stroganoff – Quick Healthy Meals

It is not difficult to make sure we are eating healthily when I have plenty of time to prepare meals. However, this proves a bit more difficult when I get home in the evening after a day’s work and have to start preparing a meal from scratch. However, I have found a way around this,  I think. This is what helps me most. I shop for the vegetables we like in the beginning of the week and then make sure I incorporate them in the...

Foam and Fork – raising the bar in Marsascala

Thank you, next. Over the past few years, we have seen a slow but rising trend in vegan and vegetarian offerings in the local food scene in Malta. However, I feel that there is still much to be desired and I think we will continue to see cool, trendy and vegan-friendly places pop up across Malta in the coming years. The demand is there and while you do find veggie or vegan options in most restaurants nowadays, it is normally an...

Crunchy Quinoa Granola

Everyone says that breakfast is “the most important meal of the day”. After waking up from a fasted night, we would need a well balanced meal to fuel ourselves to face whatever the day has in store for us. Granola is a popular breakfast staple. It may be marketed as a healthy option, but if you take a closer look at the ingredients, you will notice a string of unpronounceable ingredients, highly processed oils and sugars....

As I continued to read more about this event, I discovered that there’s this guy who teaches people how to cook authentic recipes passed down through generations of amazing Indian home cooks BUT with...

Mixed Berry Chia Jam

Store-bought fruit jams are very often than not, full of sugars and preservatives. On a quest to find a healthier alternative to a jar full of sugar, I am going to share with you a very simple recipe that requires minimal time and ingredients, and can be done on a stove top. What I like about this recipe is that you can control what kind of sweetener to use, and you’re totally free not to use any as well! Ingredients: 2 cups...

Provita – vegan body care and health food under one roof

We met up with Julienne Galea who along with her sister owns the shop. They both are pharmacists yet chose not to go down the route of a pharmacy but more down the road of health food.

Vegan Figolli

It has always been a tradition in our family to make home made figolli just before Easter. The kids loved to choose their shapes, and help decorate their own figolla when they were young. Last year, at Easter time, I had already been vegan for a few months , so I set about trying to alter my recipe to eliminate all animal products. It was not as difficult as some people may think. All you have to do is use a vegan margarine and...

BIG BANG Vegan Bangers – a vegan classic

I had the pleasure to taste Miriam Sorell’s BIG BANG Vegan Bangers before they were launched a few months ago. My first impression was, oh my God! is this meat? For those who know Miriam (author of Mouthwatering Vegan) they will certainly know that whatever she prepares is either great or a notch better. I actually tried the sausages with a some of her Midas fine art vegan cheeses (you need to try those as well). There is no...
