1 deciliter of sugar, 2 deciliters of flour and 3 decilitres of fruit, add a little coconut, some baking powder to help it rise just a little, mix… and voilà! It really is as easy as 1, 2, 3! A super yummy, super easy pudding-like cake that uses basic ingredients that you probably have on hand. […]

RED LENTIL AND VEGETABLE SOUP

I don’t know why, but even during Summer, rainy weather seems to bring to mind bowls of hot, hearty soup. It was an August afternoon and raining heavily outside. I had discovered a packet of organic red lentils in my cupboard and jumped online to find a vegan soup recipe that called for them. I asked […]

PEAR AND CARDAMOM CAKE (it’s vegan, gluten-free & refined sugar-free)

On a not uncommonly wintery Swedish “summer’s” day, I thought I’d give some vegan baking a go. I have never baked with buckwheat flour or raw agave syrup before, but thought that whilst I am “veganising” my meals, I might as well “healthify” them too. As these ingredients (in the quantities I needed) are fairly inexpensive and the […]

ONE-WEEK VEGAN ADVENTURE: day 1

As you will no doubt see below, there is no “challenge” for me about going vegan thus far, hence my use of the word “adventure” instead. My goals during this week are to experiment with vegan cooking, try exciting vegan products and, long-term, to cut back on animal products and eat even more consciously than […]
