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. […]

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.

The combination of vital wheat gluten and pureed […]
