Well, here we are posting another pizza! I could be biased, but I always thought pizza is one of the things I do best. I grew up eating pizza and as my Grandpa would tell you I had no problems eating pizza for breakfast or as a midnight snack either! For this pizza we wanted to veganize a classic. This gluten free Italian style pizza features no cheese or sauce. We made it using tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, sea salt, onions, olives, herbs and love. This recipe is the last one of the recipes we are posting for the food blog awards we are participating in. If you are interested in supporting us, click here and then click like to vote for us.

One of the very first recipes we posted was very similar to these Eggplant Boats we are posting today. It’s hard to believe it’s been two years already! One of the challenges for the food blog awards we are participating in is to make a simpler version of one of our favorite foods. We both loved the original version of this recipe so we wanted to see if we could simplify it without sacrificing flavor or satisfaction. We are very happy with the end result! As stated, this recipe is another one of the recipes we are posting for the food blog awards we are participating in.

In the past we have enjoyed noodles made from raw carrots and zucchinis but we wanted to try something a little different with this recipe. We wanted noodles that could be enjoyed without the raw crunch while still keeping the recipe as healthy as we could without sacrificing flavor. Steamed lemon ginger carrot and zucchini noodles were born! This recipe features no additional salt, no gluten, no soy, no dairy and the nuts used are optional! The steamed noodles are served with a zesty lemon ginger dressing that is bursting with flavor! As an added bonus, this recipe is low in calories and easy to prepare!

Summer is not quite over yet so we felt we needed to squeeze one last hurrah in before fall! Boutique Vegan sent us some goodies a few months back including these soy steak strips and this delicious barbecue sauce. I wanted to make another pizza using these ingredients to compliment each other and this vegan summer BBQ pizza was born!
Today we bring you smoked vegan mac and cheese which happens to be a quick, easy and great recipe for summer. Boutique Vegan recently sent us some of this vegan liquid smoke so I decided to make vegan mac and cheese with a little twist. It turned out awesome and this recipe is really simple. This is a great side dish or even main course if you ask me!
Greek Food is only one of the reasons to visit Greece, although many will argue it is one of the best ones. Some other reasons are the beautiful scenery, swimming in the sea, the hot sun and of course the hospitality of the people. My country may be going through a rough patch but this doesn’t affect the way we welcome the travelers! If you are visiting Greece or plan to, please don’t hesitate to ask us anything, such as places to eat or how to go about being a vegan while staying here. In smaller villages people may not know what vegan is, but in islands and places that attract visitors more and more vegan options show up on the menus of the restaurants. You can ask for horiatiki salad without feta and Yemista without meat, you can find these two dishes everywhere in Greece this time of the year. Swimming in the crystal clear blue waters under the Mediterranean sun is enough to relax you and make you fall in love with this place! We have added some photos from here in Patras for you to see as well in this post.
Today we bring you our final collaborative Week of Greek recipe we are doing with Oh She Cooks. This also happens to be my favorite Greek food: Yemista – Greek Stuffed Vegetables! I had never had this delicious main course before I moved to Greece two years ago. This was one of the first Greek foods Athanasia’s mom made for me when I arrived and I was hooked instantly! Athanasia’s mom is an amazing cook and all of the food she makes is delicious but I would have to say yemista is my favorite! I could eat yemista every day which means it may have replaced vegan pizza as my favorite food of all time. You may be wondering how this is possible but perhaps you have never had yemista!
Tomatoes are in season now; full of color and flavor! They are great for making sauces like the one used for vegan Greek soutzoukakia. We made our soutzoukakia using mushrooms and walnuts but the main idea is taken from this awesome lentil soutzoukakia recipe. As you will see, it can be a task to make some of the most traditional Greek recipes. This is because we take our time with the preparation, sizzling the spices and slow cooking for amazing flavor. It is a labor of love but the food is always worth it! The Vegan Greek Soutzoukakia are served with oven fried potatoes. This is another installment in our collaboration with Oh She Cooks for her Week of Greek recipes!
Here it is, as promised in our recent vegan smoked cheddar cheese recipe: vegan cheesesteak! This savory vegan sandwich can be made using homemade vegan cheese, condiments and gluten free vegan bread. Some people like this vegan sub style sandwich with or without condiments. If you like it without any condiments, it would be a good idea to make the vegan smoked cheddar cheese recipe using a little more oil. If you do like condiments, we have included a list of some of our most popular recipes below. Let’s get started:
Although asparagus season is almost over there is still time to make something creative using it. I made this asparagus and mushroom pasta and we both loved it! We thought it would be a good recipe to share in case anybody else is looking for asparagus ideas. Recently we posted our Vegan Tofu Parmesan Pasta recipe featuring the new Viofree/Violife vegan Parmesan cheese. That recipe was Jake’s idea so now it was my turn to use the new vegan Parmesan!
