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 […]

Palak tofu paneer, low carb vegan A reader asked me for more ethnic recipes, so here we go! For this palak paneer recipe (Indian spinach curry with tofu) I took some cues from Vegan Richa, the queen of vegan Indian food. This dish looks impressive, but it is super quick and easy to make, especially with the few small shortcuts I […]

Seitan chicken pieces, low carb vegan I loooove seitan! It’s cheap, low carb, high protein and super tasty. This new recipe is even lower in carbs and meatier than my ‘basic seitan’ recipe that I posted a few weeks ago. It is a little bit more work to make, but still really easy. The combination of vital wheat gluten and pureed […]

Black soybean chili, low carb vegan Our local Asian grocery stocks black soy beans, and I thought it might be nice to use them instead of regular black beans in a chili to make it lower carb. If you don't have black soybeans, you could use the more common white ones or even edamame.

Thai meal soup, low carb vegan I love meal soups. They are quick and easy to make, and you can chuck in any ingredients you have lying around. This Thai-ish version is nice to use up all the odd ends of veggies that are lying around in your fridge. Peppers, selery, cauliflower, broccoli, carrot, leeks, rutabaga, parship and many others work […]

TVP breakfast porridge Textured vegetable protein (dry soy granules) are usually used in savory recipes as a stand-in for ground meat, but it actually has a neutral flavor which means they can also be used in sweet recipes! If you cook them with soy or almond milk, sweetener and some cinnamon, they actually taste quite similar to oatmeal, […]

Vegan steamed rice cheese This is not a low carb recipe, but it is so awesome I wanted to share it here anyway. For a long time I’ve wanted to make a vegan cheese that was similar in texture to Violife (Europe) or Chao (US). I’ve tried many times with different ingredients and methods and this steamed rice flour […]
