I love eating and cooking and so I do write about my experience being a vegetarian, tendency to vegan :)

Vegan Recipe #4 Pinemilk Appleshake

Pacman strikes again

I haven’t been posting my Vegan Recipes in long time, I know, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t cook ;) I did, like a lot. I baked some cupcakes and muffins, cooked tasty und yummy stuff which I want to share with you, but I really did not have the time to post them. And actally I still don’t have :D But I am trying to type and show you the most… Even if I am on the road for 6 weeks I am trying to let my blog post them automatically ;) So dont wonder why I am posting recipes while I am gone for good :) And I’ll be back for good, too, hopefully with some new recipes and tipps for your trips!
Today in the morning I started my last day in my town with a whole Vegan Breakfast. I put a oven bread into the oven and had tomatoes, radish, cucumbers and olives on it :) Plus vegan butter.

But what I want to show you is my drink…

Pinemilk Appleshake

you take:

– 2 hands full with Pineapple

– 3 soup spoons with Soy- Vanilla Ice Cream (I used SoYeah!)

– ca. 100 ml of natural  Soy- Milk (I didn’t really measure I just used my sense of proportion)

mix everything with a handmixer- finish. Now you can serve it in a nice glass.

That was pretty easy, took at most 5 mins.

If you want to decorate the glass you can take a slice of a pineapple and put it on it!

Cheers!

as Mr. Shuster used to say… From the Top!

Enjoy!

Vegan Recipe #3: Macadamia Coooooookies

Finally I baked my first vegan cookies!!! They taste so good, but still, as with the other cookies I had, they are too crunchy… I like cookies more if they are soft and smooth :) So I have to try out, what I have to change making them like that. But Now I tell you how I made the first vegan cookies I’ve ever made :)

Ingredients:

1st part:

100 g washed(!!!) macadamia nuts
100 g vegan chocolate
100 g sugar
140 g vegan butter
50 g of grounded almonds
pinch of salt
vanilla sugar or real vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon (don’t use more, trust me!)
1 table spoon of  apple purée (as alternative for 1 egg)

2nd part:

180 g flour
1 tea spoon of  baking powder

Preparation:

It’s pretty simple:

1. cut the washed macadamias into pieces you might think appropriate for your cookies

2. mix all the ingredients of the first part together, make them to a smooth dough (a cookie dough, haha)

3. now filter the flour and the baking powder over your dough making sure you don’t get any hard parts into your dough

4. heat the oven, I used 200° and turned it down when I put the cookies in to 180°

5. form your cookies as big as you want (I got 14 out of it)

6. put them into the oven and wash up ;)

7. after 15-20 minutes (please watch your cookies for every oven is an individual) put them out of the oven and let them cool down

8. enjoy your cookies with friends :)

Vegan Recipe #2: Rice & Shine

The first time I give a recipe of mine a name: “Rice & Shine”. I was so hungry for it all day, I had it on my mind and then I just had to cook it right after work. It is a kind of curry with coconut milk, green squash, tofu and rice to tell you the main ingredients right on the start.

Ingredients:

-1 cup of rice (took basmati)

-some tofu

-1 green squash

-1 carott

– 1 can ok coconut milk

-sundried tomatos

-garlic paste

-thai paste (took yellow)

-indian spicery like curry and curcuma

– salt, pepper, chili

Preparation:

Start with the rice, it takes the same time as preparing the vegetables. Take 1 cup of rice for 2 persons, let water boil in the kettle (it is saving energy) and then pour it into a pot, add some salt and the rice.

Now to the main menu: Cut the tofu into pieces and roat it gently in peanut oil.

When it is finished give the cut green squash to the tofu and roast it also, after a few minutes the cut carotts and dried tomatos as well.

Let them all roast in the pan and after a more few minutes pour the coconut milk into the pan, let it simmer.

When it is not as fluid as in the beginning add the spiceries. First I took the garlic and the thai paste and then the indian curry mix, salz, pepper and chili. Attention: Be careful using the garilc and thai pastes, they are very hot!

Let it simmer again, taste it, if it is fine you are finsihed and have a great vegan meal :)

Now drain the rice and add it to your meal.

Special hint: Cashews might fit perfectly to this recipe, but unfortunately I didn’t had some at the moment! (Would roast them gently with the vegetables at the beginning)

Have a good one!
