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 […]

Cashew-millet cheese with geotrichum This is hands down the tastiest vegan cheese I’ve ever tried, bought or home-made! It is firm and creamy at the same time and has a lovely full goat-ish flavor. It tastes great in sandwiches or salads, but it really shines as part of a cheese platter where you can taste it on its own. […]

Low carb vegan empanadas Oh wow, these empanadas! They have crispy edges, crumbly buttery dough and a nice hearty filling. I didn’t think it would be possible to make something like this with low carb flour, let alone without gluten. I’m loving it. Once you get the hang of rolling out and shaping the dough, these are surprisingly easy […]

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 […]

Nutty fudge, low carb vegan Getting enough fat on a low carb vegan diet can be a bit of a challenge since many vegan protein sources such as tofu, tempeh and seitan are relatively lean. These healthy fat bombs are a delicious way to make up for that. Go easy on them if you are looking to loose weight, but […]

Vegan keto foods Previously I discussed how low in carbs you can go on a vegan diet. Since almost all vegan products contain at least some amount of carbohydrate, it can be a real challenge to go very low. For many plant-based eaters a medium carb diet is therefore the best choice. However, some people need to eat […]
