We were told about this vegan mozzarella recipe by our friends at Viva Las Vegans (click here for original recipe) and we had to try it. We are very, very impressed by it. It is truly a delicious vegan cheese! Athanasia just got back from her mini-vacation to Kalamata last night (don’t worry, I had some delicious lemon tofu chicken ready for her when she got home… good thing too, she was very hungry!). Needless to say, it is time to get back to posting recipes again!
First of all, we would like to apologize for our lack of posts. A little over a week ago now, my hard drive fried. With it we lost our way of posting new recipes as well as several photos of things we had made but not posted yet. We are getting back on track though! Here we have a delicious raw vegan sugar free, dairy free strawberry banana ice cream! What better than a tasty frozen treat to keep you cool this summer? Guess what else? It is very easy to make!
It has been awhile since we posted because Athanasia has been swamped with her final exams. We are sorry about that. Exams are brutal for physics students! Athanasia had this amazing idea to make zucchini burgers using some veggies and spices. I helped her come up with some of the flavor enhancements but it was her genius idea to include spearmint in them, although I had my doubts at first… she was right all along! These burgers were amazing and according to her good friend Paulina they are also low in calories! Here is how we made them:
I love cherry pies! In fact, I think I just love cherries but it takes a bit of patience to make a good cherry pie filling using a limited amount of raw cane sugar. Most cherry pies recipes I have seen over the years use so much sugar in them and I am not quite sure why. I can understand it helps shape it into more of a syrup but I just do not want to consume that much sugar. So, here is how you can make a delicious cherry pie filling using only 1 tablespoon of raw cane sugar:
Our good friend over at Viva Las Vegans introduced us to these vegan soy steaks. She also taught us how to make them as we had plenty of questions. They are very delicious and can be used in tacos, by themselves or even on a pizza! They come in many different sizes and for this recipe we will be using the smallest size. When you buy them they are basically dry and in a packaged. Here in Greece these can be found at both Botanica here in Patra and at Bamboo Vegan in Athens. I will explain to you how I make them.
It should be no secret to our readers by now how much I love pizza. I had developed this recipe for a gluten free vegan Italian pizza crust right before our raw vegan challenge and it was one of the last things we ate before the challenge. We both loved it and so I wanted to make it again. A good Italian pizza crust has to have the right blend of herbs in it or else it will either lack flavor or be too overpowering.
Who doesn’t love a good tomato salsa? I sure do! It is so easy to make at home too! It’s very simple and by making it at home you can leave out the vinegar which you never find in a fresh made salsa at a high quality restaurant. Why? Because vinegar doesn’t belong in salsa! It is put into canned salsas as a preservative. Here is how you can make a mild to spicy raw tomato salsa: Continue reading
It has been a long time since I have had a soft pretzel with cheese. After our 30 day raw vegan challenge was over this was the first thing I wanted to attempt to make. Working without gluten can be difficult when trying to form shapes with dough but I think these gluten free vegan soft pretzels with cheese turned out great for my first attempt! Here is how I did it: Continue reading

All last summer with Jake we were eating Greek salad, (we call it horiatiki salad here!). Now that it is summer again, well, at least the calendar says so but it hasn’t stopped raining the past two weeks (yay!), we are eating Greek salad every day. Thanks to our friends over at Viva Las Vegans, we now have a great vegan Feta cheese recipe! Which I know doesn’t mean a whole lot to Jake, but to a Greek, it is the most important thing to have a Greek salad with vegan Feta cheese!
