This year vegans are being spoiled during the Gentse Feesten. There are 2 vegan pop up restaurants, 1 pop up veggie frituur and 2 vegan food trucks:
- Foodstorms: chef quality vegan cuisine
- Living food: raw kitchen
- De Natuurfrituur: as it says french fries and veggie snacks
- VivaVeva – Loving Hut Express: food truck
- Just look your mom: food truck with burgers and desserts
The first place we visited was ‘De Natuurfrituur’:
French fries with boskroket and bitterballen.
Seeing the V…word more and more.
It’s really warm these days in Gent. So, I was so happy to discover that you could actually buy vegan icecream on the streets of Gent:

Did you know there are 3 recipes for omelet in ‘The Vegg Cookbook‘? This is the one called: Any way you want it Vegan Omelet. And it’s a good one:

Okra’s can be very hard to find over here. So, when I found some in the Asian supermarket I just had to buy them. They gave me a good opportunity to try out Bryant Terry latest cookbook: Afro-Vegan.
Name: Creamy Coconut-Cashew Soup with Okra, Corn, and Tomatoes
Author: Bryant Terry
When I saw this recipe I found it a weird combination: sweet potatoes topped with ‘cheese’. But hey, this turned out to be delicious:

Lately I joined a Vegan Potluck group. It’s always fun but it’s always also a big challenge. By coincidence we have a few people with allergies in the group. So when I prepare something for the potluck I can’t use nuts, gluten, refined sugars or beans.
Last time I prepared this Fusion Rice Bowl, and it was a big hit:
