It’s coming, and I’m in

Standard

What else could I be talking about then ‘VeganMoFo‘.

This year I’m a little bit more prepared. As the goal is at least 20 posts, I went through my cookbook library, collected 20 and decided that I had to prepare at least one thing from every book:

Did you know I’ll be celebrating my 6 anniversary of VeganMoFo?

Vegan in Paris

Standard

Although I only live 310 km away from Paris, it was only last week that I made my very first real visit to Paris. And of course I had to check out what Paris has to offer to Vegans.

On our first evening we had diner at Café Ginger. This place is a big recommend. Very nice people, cozy, not to expensive and good food:

Of course we also had to try the local Loving Hut. The crêpe was the most expensive dish on the menu, but was definetely worth it. Although I was a little dissapointed with the side salad.

A big recommend goes to Hank burgers. It is a very tiny place but the offer is just great and cheap:

We wanted to visit more restaurants and shops but as our visit was in the first week of august, most places were closed for the holidays.

Two more tips: for groceries you should surely go to Un Monde Vegan. And close by ‘Le Gare du Nord’ you can grab a vegan burger at VG for your trip home.

There can be only one big conclusion: Paris has a lot to offer for vegans.

Seitan in the Slow Cooker

Standard

I’m way behind with my posts. In june I prepared some seitan with my slow cooker using the recipe from Robin Robertson ‘Fresh from the vegan slow cooker‘.
I have two pictures that include the seitan but I totally forgot in which recipes I used the seitan:
