I’ve made a number of plant-based pancakes in the past few years and have enjoyed experimenting with different ingredients, ratios and combinations. At the end of the day, these delightfully simple recipes (with banana and “classic”) have established themselves as my ultimate my go-tos that I love to come back to. They don’t have a lot of ingredients and are incredibly quick to make – perfect for both a lazy weekend and a regular weekday breakfast, if you’re working from home.Continue reading “Easy Vegan Pancakes: Banana and Classic”
Super Simple Vegan French Toast
French toast is one of those dishes that may seem as if it must be inherently illusive for plant-based eaters. A truly saddening thought for any lover of this sweet breakfast treat that potentially dates back to Roman times. Thankfully, vegan French toast is not only feasible but just as tasty, as I realized on the rare occasions I stumbled upon the dish at vegan eateries (the best French toast I ever had was at Veggie Galaxy in Cambridge Massachusetts, near Boston – not to be missed if you’re in the area!). I’ve seen various versions of vegan recipes out there, some including chickpea flour, banana or tofu. When the irresistible French toast craving struck I finally ended up mixing together quite a basic concoction, which I later simplified even further.Continue reading “Super Simple Vegan French Toast”
Healthy Vegan Pancakes
I’ve had a wonderful weekend filled with workouts and lots of good food with friends, enjoying the gorgeously golden autumnal weather here in Zurich. It’s a beautiful time of year and I’m feeling very mindful and satisfied with enjoying the little things, like the yellow and orange leaves on the ground, the smell of chestnuts in the air and lighting candles in my apartment while catching up with friends or cooking my Sunday meal prep.
One thing that is always part of a good weekend, if you ask me, is some soul-satisfying brunch food. And while my go-to is usually a smoothie bowl, I also have a never-ending love affair with pancakes… They remind me of childhood and taste super indulgent, while actually being really nourishing (well, these ones at least 🙂 ). They’re also very quick to mix together and only take a few minutes to cook – perfect for when you’re hungry after a weekend workout or just in the mood for something comforting.Continue reading “Healthy Vegan Pancakes”
Simple Smoothie Bowls: Mango Spinach & Cherry Blueberry
My love of smoothie bowls knows no bounds, especially during summer time. There is nothing more refreshing, nourishing and satisfying to me than a vibrant smoothie bowl with an array of gorgeous toppings. The fact that they’re so easy to whip up and don’t require any ingredients you can’t keep stored, makes them such a great breakfast, snack or even lazy weekday dinner.Continue reading “Simple Smoothie Bowls: Mango Spinach & Cherry Blueberry”
Maca Peanut & Salted Date Quinoa Granola Crumbs
It’s been a while since my last post, so I’m happy to finally be back with another recipe 🙂 Most of September I was on holiday in Indonesia and somehow I just didn’t have any time or energy to dedicate to my blog or food photography.
But never mind that now, let’s talk about these crunchy, deliciously sweet & salty, nourishing, comforting and super speedy Maca Peanut & Salted Date Quinoa Granola Crumbs. A serious mouthful. What is it exactly? Not chunky enough for granola, yet still kind of clumpy, I wasn’t quite sure what to call this mix (“grumps” came to mind, but didn’t have quite the appeal I was going for), so I settled for “granola crumbs”. They can be sprinkled on top of smoothie bowls or fresh fruit or eaten on their own with mylk, for a satisfying (and seriously addictive!) snack.Continue reading “Maca Peanut & Salted Date Quinoa Granola Crumbs”
Green Protein Smoothie
Today I’m sharing another smoothie bowl recipe. My go-to smoothie is my all-time favorite blueberry smoothie, but I do love a good green smoothie every now and then. Getting in some greens while enjoying a sweet bowl of deliciousness AND getting a protein boost sounds like a pretty good win-win situation to me.Continue reading “Green Protein Smoothie”
Ultimate Banana Bread by Nourishing Amy
Today’s recipe is from my wonderful friend Amy from Nourishing Amy (@nourishing.amy) and I’m so happy to share it with you, because it’s epic.
There are arguably some recipes that we all should have in our repertoire and one of these is banana bread. We all need a good banana bread recipe for cold winter evenings and a cup of tea, just as much as for summer brunch outside, served with fresh fruit, and for that any-time-of-year moment when we realize those bananas just need to be eaten.Continue reading “Ultimate Banana Bread by Nourishing Amy”

Vegan Banana Coconut French Toast by Bianca Zapatka
It’s time to share with you another guest recipe – one that I can’t believe I’ve lived this long without: Vegan French Toast! This is something I didn’t think I would be eating after going plant-based, and it completely slipped off my foodie radar. Until, that is, I discovered Bianca Zapatka’s blog full of beautiful, mouthwatering recipes – including an irresistibly simple and incredibly delicious version of French Toast, using ingredients you probably have on hand.Continue reading “Vegan Banana Coconut French Toast by Bianca Zapatka”
I always love coming across new, exciting and – of course – yummy things to make. Best of all are those simple enough to easily become part of your regular food repertoire, but still special enough to make you excited every time 😉 I very much suspect this will be the case for me with this chickpea ‘omelette’ that I recently tried out for the first time, after hearing about it from my friend Amy.
Probably more of a farinata, if we’re being technical, this vegan ‘omelette’ is not only super simple, but also so satisfying, nourishing and filling. It’s also very adaptable, as you can flavor it any way you want and chuck in whatever ingredients you have lying around.Continue reading “Chickpea ‘Omelette’”
