Recipe: Sweet Potato Pizza with Creamy Roasted Garlic Cashew Sauce [VEGAN]

Recipe: Sweet Potato Pizza with Creamy Roasted Garlic Cashew Sauce [VEGAN]

My friend Averi and I shared this pizza and both agreed that it was absolutely delicious. As much as I love cooking and sharing my kitchen creations, I am not very confident in the things I make. But this pizza was freaking amazing,  I honestly feel like it belongs in a restaurant. Don't mean to toot my own horn but, #whatever, it's true. ;)

Recipe: Sweet Potato Chili [VEGAN] [OIL-FREE] [HCLF]

Recipe: Sweet Potato Chili [VEGAN] [OIL-FREE] [HCLF]

Sydney's currently in this weird half winter/half spring state where somedays are so warm your only option is to wear a swim suit, and other days are so cold you wouldn't even dream of going outside. On one of those freezing days in Bondi as I watched the palm trees bend and sway dangerously in the insane wind, I got a craving for a big bowl of chili.

Recipe: Raw Vegan Cashew Cheese [VEGAN] [RAW] [OIL-FREE]

Recipe: Raw Vegan Cashew Cheese [VEGAN] [RAW] [OIL-FREE]

Trust me, the title of this post is misleading! Raw vegan cashew cheese is actually insanely simple and so delicious! I don't know about you, but I used to be intimated by anything that was raw, especially raw recipes that used nuts. It always seemed so time consuming and finicky, I just never wanted to try it. I'm currently in a phase of my life where I'm trying to get over my strange mental blocks to prove that I can do the things that once seemed difficult.

Recipe: Ka'Chava Coffee Banana Freeze [RAW] [VEGAN]

Recipe: Ka'Chava Coffee Banana Freeze [RAW] [VEGAN]

I had a few frozen bananas in my freezer, a tub of cold brew coffee in my fridge (which is a rare treat for me), and a packet of Ka'Chava Chocolate Superfood Powder. Remembering the first coffee beverage I ever ordered (a tall caramel frapuccino at age 13), I decided to recreate the frozen drinks I felt so cool for drinking when I was younger.

Recipe: Avocado Pesto Lasagna Roll-Ups [VEGAN]

If you decide to give my pesto lasagna roll ups a try, be sure to designate at least two hours in the kitchen. They take a looong time! Luckily, there's nothing difficult about putting them together, each component just takes patience and time. I served these rolls with an arugula salad on the side :) My non-vegan sister absolutely loved these and kept saying "Mmm...wow" as she took bite after bite. When your cheese-loving sister approves of these dairy-free delights, you know you've got a winner!

Recipe: Homemade Healthy Sushi Bowl with Salt & Pepper Tofu [VEGAN]

Recipe: Homemade Healthy Sushi Bowl with Salt & Pepper Tofu [VEGAN]

My sushi bowl is one of the many meals I've come up with to squash my unwavering desire for avocado rolls. I love making this because it's got tons of raw veggies (which means more nutrients and less cleaning up), is really filling, and is super easy to make. But mostly I'm obsessed with it because it keeps me from spending money at sushi restaurants lol.

Recipe: Homemade Shakshuka [VEGAN] [EGG-FREE] [SOY-FREE]

Recipe: Homemade Shakshuka [VEGAN] [EGG-FREE] [SOY-FREE]

Because I want this blog to highlight how easy it is to eat culturally significant foods from around the world without straying from a plant-based diet, I figured it was time I stop waiting for someone else to make me a shakshuka, and just make one on my own. I researched authentic recipes and then came up with one on my own that catered to my tastes and needs. I'm excited to show people how easy it is to travel the world, tasting authentic cuisine, all while maintaining a vegan diet.

Easy Thai Coconut Curry

Easy Thai Coconut Curry

Like most of my recipes, this dish is easily customizable to your tastes and dietary needs. The base is made up of coconut milk; feel free to use light coconut milk for a less caloric meal or full-fat coconut milk for a richer taste. I've always made it using light coconut milk and am satisfied with the taste, but it tends to be a bit thinner than the curries I order in Thai restaurants. I'm okay with that, though. The veggies are also totally your choice!
