Vegan cottage cheese, low carb I always used to love cottage cheese and I only just found a good vegan alternative. Most vegan recipes use silken tofu, but I much prefer this version with regular firm tofu and unsweetened soy yogurt. It is has exactly the right texture and a lovely slightly savory, salty and sour flavor. It is also […]

Homemade tofu Many older cookbooks (and even some new ones!) say tofu needs to marinade for hours or even days to flavor it. When I was just learning to cook vegan I tried that a couple times and I was always disappointed with the result. The tofu never got really flavorful, it tended to burn in the […]

Low carb noodle salad with marinated eggplant, vegan This noodle salad is a new favorite in our house! It is bursting with Asian flavors from the juicy marinated eggplant and fried tofu. It is nice and quick to make too, especially if you marinade the eggplant in advance. Perfect for busy weeknights. I love this new way to prepare eggplant. It is very […]

Dutch mash-pot /stamppot, low carb vegan Dutch mash-pot (stamppot) is a traditional dish made from mashed potatoes and vegetables. It is similar to Irish colcannon. Many Dutch people still eat this at least once a week, especially in winter. It is like ultimate comfort food and it used to be one of my favorite meals when I was a child. It […]

Vegan protein pancakes, low carb I have long lamented the lack of a good low carb vegan pancake recipe. Thankfully my fellow Dutchy and low carb genius Alynda solved the problem, by tweaking my waffle recipe into pancakes. It never quite worked out when I tried to do that, so I’m really quite indebted to her. She shared this wonderful […]

Seitan seaweed sausage, vegan In Holland, we have a famous vegan company called ‘the Dutch Weedburger’. The ‘weed’ in their burgers is seaweed and it’s totally delicious. Be sure to visit their restaurant if you are ever in Amsterdam. Recently they also started making seitan sausages with seaweed in them. It sounds weird, but the seaweed adds a delicious […]

Turkish pizza, low carb vegan Dutch food culture has received some lovely influence from Turkish immigrants and their descendants. This has resulted in many variations on traditional foods, such a lahmacun, also known as Turkish pizza. It’s basically a pan fried flatbread with tomato meat sauce baked onto it. The flat bread is stuffed with salad and rolled up. In […]

Miso soup, low carb vegan David and I have been watching some documentaries about Japan (check Japanology on Youtube), and we like trying some Japanese food while we’re at it. This time it was miso soup, a big bowlful of Japanese comfort food that is super quick to make. The miso (fermented soy paste) makes for a lovely creamy broth […]

Snack style lunch, low carb vegan Wow, it’s been a while. My previous post was in February, I can’t believe it’s been that long! We had a family vacation in the US, I finished my PhD (yay!) and we fell off the low carb bandwagon big time. Now all that excitement is behind us, it’s time to get back to it. […]

Low carb vegan bibimbap I finally managed to find gochujang Korean fermented chili paste in Amsterdam. I love the flavor, like a marriage of sriracha and miso. I want to try lots of Korean recipes now, and started with bibimbap. This is a nice quick filling recipe with lots of different flavors that takes about half an hour to […]
