Birthday Blueberries and Spiraling Veggies

Hooray! This year I celebrated my birthday with a Maple-Kissed Blueberry Pie from a recipe in the lovely Vegan Pie In The Sky cookbook by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. Yes, the same authors who created Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World and Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar – the first is happily sitting on my shelve and the latter is highly prioritized on my wish lists. Oh, priorities! Let’s review this pie: it was f***ing glorious. The filling was SO good, with blueberries and maple syrup and all. The crust was a BIT less good, which wasn’t the crust’s fault: it was more due to the combination of our new electric oven and my housemates and me. Apparently, as was found around 20:30 in the evening after having been baking and cooking all night and day, the thing has a very special roast option, which was on. So then all my bakings and cookings were good on the top and a lot more raw on the bottom. Too bad. Nevertheless, the …

Vegan pizzas and pies from Germany

Dear you, I am happy to inform you that I have safely returned from my travels and that I am pretty happy. This summer has been really good to me and I am grateful for that. I hope you’ve been having a good time as well! So, since this blog is meant to be some sort of food blog, let’s confess: I have been away and eating for the whole summer and the yield of food pictures counts four. In my defence: I accidentally only packed half of my camera charger, so it’s not only the food pictures that are non-existent. I have been telling myself that it was actually nice to not really be able to make pictures, for then you can better enjoy things as they are instead of focussing on the photography. That worked quite well. Now I will just proceed posting the pictures with some additional chattering. Vegan currywurst in mango garlic sauce It’s vegan currywurst in mango garlic sauce! I forgot the name of the store, but it seemed to …

The Spiral Vegetable Pie

Look at this magnificent creature. You may refer to it as Spiral Vegetable Tart and Veggie Roulade. I prefer Super Awesome Psychedelic Spiral Rose Vegetable Pie. That is a perfectly accurate description. I created it and since then I’ve spent my time openly bragging about it. It got me 50+ likes – which only encourages this behaviour. It’s really easy to make and I would like to see everybody doing so and posting pictures of the result on their social media. As long as you’re making my version and not the original one of Food Republic, for I have used pumpkin hummus as a base for the veggies in stead of some dairy shizzle. However, you should definitely go to that Food Republic web page and check out the video to see how you do the spiral thing. Or, if you can’t wait, here’s a short cut: they start in the middle. Other than that: the vegetables are just carrots, zucchini and eggplant, sliced really thinly. As you can see I didn’t put too much …
