Raw Rainbow and Vitamin Bomb Cake

Let’s talk about gay rights. And about a cake I made in celebration of a big milestone being achieved for same-sex couples in Germany.

This cake embraces plenty of different flavours (you won’t believe how much fruit I managed to squeeze in there) as symbol of embracing differences among us and showing respect towards each other. You can literally taste the rainbow with this cake. It is jam packed with Vitamins and superfoods like Moringa, Spirulina and good old Turmeric. It is the fruitiest cake I’ve ever tasted that could also pass as an ice cream.

Best Vegan Buttermilk Pancakes: White Chocolate Chip & Raspberry

Let’s talk about pancakes. For me it is the best start into the weekend imaginable although I would not say no to pancakes during the week either.

Whether it is pancakes in the form of Dutch Poffertijes, the medium-thick German Pfannkuchen, the super thin and elegant French Crepes or be it pancakes with Oreo cookies or Pancakes Elvis-style with banana & peanut butter – I simply love them all.

Seitan Double Cheeseburger with Butternut Chips

Create a great vegan burger – a challenge that loads of people worldwide have already taken. I think a burger must be exactly tailored to your own preferences. You want your perfect burger, so I do not want to try to present a detailed burger to the last detail, but rather show you what I found to be really tasty for my loved ones and me but feel free to experiment and built yours up, with everything YOUR Burger heart desires. Instead of your usual fries, I went for a much healthier and carb-free finer supplement: butternut chips.

Apple, Cinnamon & Caramelised Walnut Cake

I really like to reflect the seasons in what I bake, not only because I am thinking of the food miles but also because it just generally fits the atmosphere. The wind is knocking on your window, leaves have fallen and children are collecting chestnuts and the last warm sunbeams flash through the clouds. Your oven spreads the tempting of apples and cinnamon and you know: It’s autumn.

What better way to feel cozy with your best friend, a delicious piece of apple cake, a hot pot of steaming tea cuddled in blankets sitting outside in the terrace for one last time watching the leaves fall. Sounds good? Then heat the oven, it is time to bake.

Super quick Linguine with Vegan Pesto, Mini Tomatoes & Parmesan

This is one of my favourite dishes of all times. My dad loves the sun, sailing, water and good food. He tries to spend as much time near either of them as possible. When he was on board of a ship decades ago he became friends with the chef on board. The two would talk about food, sit in the sun and smoke cigars and then in a moment of mutual happiness, the chef decided to entrust my dad the recipe of his favourite dish on board. Below is the veganised version of it, it’s simple and prepared so quickly but so amazingly good and fresh and healthy!

quesadillas3

Hola Amigos. Fancy some Mexican food? Those grilled Corntortillas stuffed with BBQ Bloody Mary jackfruit, melted cheese, sweetcorn, sour creme, jalapeños, cashews and avocados and homemade Mexican Pinto Coleslaw are amazing. I love to try new things. Isn’t it crazy that you can make vegan pulled pork from a fruit? I do not know who first came up with the idea of using Jackfruits for a vegan version of Pulled Pork, but whoever it was thank you what a great idea! All in all, you do not need more than 30 minutes to make those Jackfruit Pulled Pork Quesadillas. My recipe may seem like I was just throwing together a random mix of ingredients – but trust me this combination will blow you away.

Breakfast – Scrambled Tofu

A felicitous Sunday for me includes a long sleep and a relaxed breakfast. Usually, my preference would almost always be for a sweet breakfast including loads of fruit, maple syrup and chocolate chips on pancake or French toast along with a soya milk coffee. Today, I felt a bit shattered still and went for something loaded with nutrients that would give me strength for the hike through the Yorkshire Dales we had planned for the day.

Online you can find many recipes for vegan scrambled eggs, the base for it is essentially tofu and turmeric, giving the tofu the yellow color. I tried many different recipes but I’ve never really been amazed. I have now found an easy & adaptable recipe that works for me.
