Best Vegan Cheeses

My Top 10 Vegan Cheese by Type

If you ask anyone what is the one thing they miss the most after transitioning to a plant-based diet, almost everyone will say cheese.

Vietnamese omelet

Crispy Vietmamese Omelet

The first time I tasted a Vietnamese omelet I could not believe that it was eggless. What a discovery! It was light, fluffy, with a light yellow hue. It was crispy on the edges and thicker in the middle to hold the filling. Oh and don’t get me started on the pickled carrots on the […]

Traditional Seven Vegetable Couscous

My first discovery of Moroccan food was in a small and colorful restaurant in my hometown in the South of France back in the seventies. It had such exotic colors and decorations! Fabric draped on the ceiling, lanterns, rugs… It was also the first time I tasted the fire of chilis! I remember it as […]

Apple Muffins

Best Chunky Vegan Apple Muffins

Back in the days when we lived in the California Bay area, we discovered the best apple muffins at our local farmer’s market. They were in fact the first vegan and truly light and fluffy cakes we had since we became vegan. They were so big that we used to split them in half for […]

Vegan Pupusas

Glorious Vegan & Gluten-Free Pupusas

Pupusas is an ancient and traditional dish from El Salvador. They are essentially stuffed tortillas. While Italians have calzones and Chinese have dumplings, both use wheat flour. Pupusas on the other hand are made with cornmeal flour (also called Masa harina) and sometimes rice flour making them a great gluten-free alternative. There are other variations […]

Trace Elements

How to Boost Your Immune System with Trace Elements

This week, I wanted to write about something different that is important this time of year. We all know about the importance of minerals for our health and well-being.

Portion of Cranberry Jam (with fresh fruits)

Fresh Orange Cranberry Relish

Around Thanksgiving and Christmas, you can find fresh cranberries in grocery stores making it the perfect time to make orange cranberry relish. They are only available from mid-September to mid-November in the US so you have to get them while you can. Apparently the American cranberry is a native to the Northeastern United States and […]
