Italy has lots of cute, vegan/vegetarian places, and even in traditional restaurants they'll often arrange something for you. But fast foods have been pretty much vegan-free, until now.
The new "plant-based" products of more
Spring is coming back and so is ice cream (and myself, since I have been going through really busy weeks). I tried this 100% vegan gelateria, and I was amazingly surprised. I only tried one flavour, cream, but it was so, more
Nothing less than 5 stars for these noodles. Hua Cheng is an incredible chinese trattoria. They have many different typical dishes, and a lot of them are vegan. The price is incredible, I paid ~4€ for one portion of noodles. more
Hello everyone! I have just gone through reeeeally busy weeks (the end of exams' season of a med student, basically death). But here I am now 😅
Back to the product: I have no clue why people are not talking about these more
To go on with yesterday's lunch. Again, obviously, awful packaging.
I liked these noodles less as compared to the baozi, but they were good nonetheless. The taste was pretty bland but enjoyable! I think I paid 5€ only, so more
Today I went to this little place where they mainly sell chinese street food. I have a few things to say:
- First, the reason why I doubt I'll go there again: plastic. Plastic everywhere. We sat at the table and we were more
Whole foods, plant-based diet...
Well, I do love a little treat with white crisps sometimes! They are obviously not the best nutrion-wise, but they aren't the worst, either.
They stopped selling them at my local Carrefour more
This cheese alternative, Gargonzina, should be the soy-based version of gorgonzola (blue cheese). I have to be honest: I did not particularly enjoy the taste. It's not bad, but it's very bland.
I wouldn't eat it by itself, more
Pizza, pizza, pizza 🍕
As a tradition, every Sunday evening, we make pizza (in the picture our personal favorite: mozzarella, potatoes and onions).
When I went vegan, it took me a bit of time to understand how to substitute more
In the first picture: beans and soy mince chili, on the side cauliflower nuggets.
Ages ago, while I was traveling in Greece, I found in a Supermarket this soy mince. I was a bit surprised, since up to that point I hadn't more
For the chili:
Heat up some oil with onions cut in medium-large chunks and finely cut garlic, and then add ~80g of soy mince. Toast them together before adding beans, I used 480gr of cooked beans. Then add tomato paste and tomato sauce. I didn't measure how much, just to cover everything nicely. Then loads of spices! I used: coffee, sumac, nutmeg, thyme, ginger, clove, cumin, cinnamon, coriander. Plus, a teaspoon of miso paste! I let it cook for about 90 minutes.
For the cauliflower nuggets:
- 1/2 cauliflower
- ~70gr of flour
- 130gr unsweetened plant milk
- 100gr breadcrumbs
- nutritional yeast
First I put every cauliflower top inside the mixture of milk and flour, and then inside the breadcrumbs and nutrional yeast. Then I put everything in the oven with a generous amount of olive oil for about 20 minutes at 180⁰C.1 likeReply
