Vegan Breakfast Scramble (no egg, no tofu)

This recipe is mind-blowingly flavourful and can be eaten at any time of the day: breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner! What is most surprising is that the key ingredient for the traditional vegan scramble is tofu. However, this time the star of the show will be chickpea flour! Ingredients: 50g gram flour/chickpea flour1/4 teaspoon paprika1/4 teaspoon garlic powder1/4 teaspoon onion powder1/4 teaspoon cumin1/4 teaspoon turmeric Pinch of...

Creamy soya cubes with pasta – hungarian style

Since traveling is very difficult these days let us travel at least a bit by making food that has origins in other countries. Typically meaty meal, transformed into a vegan alternative can easily do the trick. My grandma used to make this when I was small so it reminds me of home a lot. Lately I grew to like soya cubes so I use them a lot in meals as a source of protein. They are a great meat alternative and so much easier to prepare...

Għadam tal-mejtin – Traditional Maltese Bones

As the weather is now slowly getting cooler, I start to enjoy some more time in my kitchen. Baking is one thing I look forward to at this time of year. Come teatime in the afternoon ( in my case it’s actually coffee) I like to have a little treat to accompany my cup of coffee. Last week I finally managed to bake a vegan version of a traditional pastry which is very popular in the month of November. Għadam tal-mejtin –...

Blackberry baked oatmeal

Another morning recipe! If you are tired of making porridge a million different ways, here is something new! Baked oatmeal is basically very similar to the porridge, just a tad different. Takes a bit more time because of the baking, but the result is so delicious that I think that you should definitely try it! I made mine whilst baking granola, since it’s small and fits in the oven with other stuff so you can make 2 things at a...

Fruity tapioca dessert

Have you ever heard of tapioca? It is a starch extracted from cassava root, naturally gluten-free. The pearls are often used to make puddings, desserts and snacks. I have made this fruity tapioca dessert for you today. Tapioca pearls have not much of a nutritional value itself, but when you use the right ingredients with it, you can create a nice nutrient filled dessert. Suitable for people allergic or intolerant to wheat,...

Vegan Pumpkin Pie

This is hands down my favourite pie to bake during colder seasons. It is hearty, but still nutritious as the filling is packed with vitamins and fiber. This pie is very easy to make; however, the filling has to be made in advance the day before – as most of it will be prepared raw! Also, by preparing it a day earlier, all the flavours will merge together and the juices of the pumpkin will start to hydrate the rice and lentils....

Vegan nut and berry muffins

Fluffy and sweet muffins, great for Sunday (tea) party or just for your kids to snack on. I personally like muffins, but I don’t make them a lot because the whole tray is just too much for me to finish myself and not enough for a bigger get together. Although, when I just want to make my family happy, it’s just right! The ingredients are minimum and I guess you have all of them at home already. Even if you are new to...

Hearty autumn veggie soup

Autumn is here and colder days with it. There is nothing better than a bowl of hot soup in front of you on such a chilly day. This is one of my favorite soups, because it’s nutrient-filled and you actually feel like you are full after this one, no need for the second course at all. Soups in general are low calorie, so it is also suitable when you are trying to lose some weight. This one has only 221 kcal per serving! The lentils...

Coconut beetroot soup

Beetroot. I personally love this vegetable (ok, I love all vegetables 😀 ), it’s tasty, healthy and you can use it to make basically anything, from a side dish to beet brownies where they play the lead role. Beetroot is packed with essential nutrients, it is a great source of fiber, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Beetroot has been associated with numerous health benefits, including improved blood...

Vegan meal-prep for busy days

Most of the people who live healthy know how hard can it be to maintain a healthy lifestyle on a busy day at work. And if you are not focused on healthy eating habits, you may tell yourself why to even start, you don’t have time for this. It is so much harder to eat healthy food on a busy day, when most of the people just go to the closest pastizzeria because they do not have time to search for healthier options. The secret is...

It is super easy,...
