Christmas 2013

Standard

Only showing some pictures to give you an idea. I had some guests who also brought food, like the dessert which is a traditional Norwegian one. Not on the pictures: more appetizers, snacks and the soup:

Although I want to mention that the first pictures shows ‘Carousing Cucumber Rounds with Rummy Hummus’ from The Tipsy Vegan. You have to admit, I just had to mention food with such a name.

The Cheesy Vegan

Standard

The excuse “I can’t go vegan because I couldn’t live without my cheese”, doesn’t count anymore. Not only are there more and more vegan cheeses on the market, the internet is getting overwhelmed with recipes for making your own vegan cheese. And yes, we even have several cookbooks about vegan cheese. The latest one is The Cheesy Vegan, and it is a good one. So far I tried 3 recipes:

Swedish Vegan Muffins

Standard

Last time I visited Ikea I bought their muffin pan. As this is a little bit different than a normal muffin pan, I thought it probably needed different kind of recipes.

So, I googled and found nothing.

But that’s not a  problem, because vegan cooking and baking is all about experimenting (that’s why I like it so much).

Instead, I used one of my all time favourite recipes for a berry muffin because it’s a very easy recipe:

Pizza Hawaï

Standard

What’s wrong with Pizza Hawaï? Nothing, except that it’s an old fashion name for a pizza that includes pineapple as a topping:

Pizza Hawaï

For the base I used a recipe for pizza dough from Bake and destroy.

Toppings: green pepper, pineapple, vegan chorizo (Wheaty) and vegan pizza cheese from Wilmersburger.

As you can see, this pizza has nothing to do with an authentic Pizza Hawaï :-)
