Pita sa krompirom (Pita with potatoes)

This recipe reminds me so much of home. I’m swiss and I grew up in Switzerland. But my dad migrated from Croatia and my mom from Bosnia. This makes me croatian and swiss. My mom is an amazing cook and made everything from scratch. We would always cook together and she would teach me traditional…

Cooking Beans in a Pressure Cooker

Where do vegans get their protein? Black Beans, Cannellini Beans, Chickpeas, Kidney Beans, Pinto Beans… You get the idea ūüėČ Beans are¬†an easy and cheap staple to have. I usually grab a can , but lately I have¬†started buying them dried and cooking them up myself. You might think it takes ages but with the…

Oatmeal

This is one of my favourite breakfasts… ever! I love it so much because it is so versatile and nutritious. Depending on the season you can combine it with different fruits. The basic oatmeal or porridge recipe is fairly easy. * serves 1 50 g rolled oats (or instant oats) 250 ml liquid (water, almond…

Carrot Cake

My favorite cake at the moment is carrot cake! I used to think it is hard to veganize cakes, pies and cookies. But it is actually really easy. This recipe for example does not have any butter inside. You only have to find a replacement for eggs. I tried it with flaxseed and apple sauce….

Homemade Vegan Mayonnaise

Creamy Salad Dressing

There is this one super yummy salad dressing you can buy pre-made here in Switzerland. It is a spin on a classic french dressing. I wanted to make my own salad dressing as it is cheaper, fresher and hopefully tastier. **makes 4¬†servings for the dressing 3 tbsp vegan mayo (homemade version) 2 tbsp almond milk…

Le Gurk

Mac & Cheese

This is the perfect dish to serve your cheese-loving friends. It is so creamy your friends will not know it’s vegan. You can add some more veggies for example broccoli, kale or tomatoes or use gluten free pasta.¬†I also like to put sun dried tomatoes in the cheese sauce. Make it your own and tell…

Vegan “Zimtsterne” (gf)

Zimtsterne ist the German word for cinnamon-stars. Another gluten free recipe that will blow your mind. These cookies are really popular in Switzerland and widely available to buy but unfortunately not in a vegan version. I just swapped the eggs with water and it worked fine. Let me know, if you have a good substitute…

Vegan “Mail√§nderli”

Vegan “Brunsli” (gf)

It’s Christmas time or as I like to call it “stuff my face with delicious food-time”. I love to cook dinners for my friends and Christmas is the perfect opportunity. But let’s not forget about the cookies. In Switzerland, where I come from, we bake looots¬†of cookies ahead of time. The traditional Swiss cookies though…
