Being a lustful lover of all things avocado, guacamole has been a fundamental staple of my diet ever since I first gave it a go. For me, the avocado has to be creamy with chunks of tomato give it texture and an ample amount of garlic and different sorts of pepper spice it up while fresh lime juice is responsible for that tangy aftertaste. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Guacamole
After my recent, successful hunt for wild garlic I suddenly had this beautiful, luscious pile of leafy greens to work with – and work with it I did. The other Sunday I spent the whole afternoon in the kitchen, cooking up a storm and enjoying myself immensely at it. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Wild garlic galore
One pot pasta looks oh-so-yummy on so many bloggers’ Instagram photos. The different colours of the pasta, tomatoes, onion and basil make it delicious to the eye. Also, pasta is always a good idea. Mr A seemed to agree when we compiled last week’s meal plan and there it was: Friday – One pot pasta. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: One pot pasta
A lover of all things organising I had for a while been contemplating getting cleverer about the meals (dinner) I cook during the week. However, despite thorough research on the internet I didn’t come across any meal plan I wanted to copy.
Therefore, I had to resort to DIY (or, in this case, DIM). Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Meal planning
Not only do I enjoy soups during the colder months of the year, I will also never forego a good pot of stew, like this spice-laden tagine-inspired Moroccan hotpot, brimming with oriental smells and guaranteed to warm you up even on the coldest of nights.
Especially in winter I like to indulge in steaming bowls of thick soup, such as this wonderful red lentil concoction featuring fried potato cubes as a little, somewhat unexpected extra. I came across it on the Küchengötter website and tweaked it ever-so-slightly to suit my taste even better. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Red lentil soup with potatoes
While my Instagram feed was full of bloggers posting their latest chia-creation, raving about how delicious they were, I would hesitantly make chia gel to stir into my muesli or put in my smoothie. It didn’t at all excite me though. Only recently did I come across a recipe that caught my attention because it sounded a little different and like it might actually work for me. After a few minor adjustments, it did and I’m very much in love. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Raspberry chia pudding
I had my first sticky rice with mango at an anonymous food stop in Northern Thailand, approaching the Mekong river to cross over to Laos.
I had never liked mangos until I tasted my first perfectly ripe mango on Easter Island. It was juicy, it was sweet, it was delicious. Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Mango sticky rice
With the onset of veganism as a more common concept of life over the last couple of years, raw recipes have also made their way into the everyday kitchen. My everyday kitchen at least.
By today, I’m not at all convinced why I should forgo a hot cup of soup, tea or – heaven forbid – coffee, but a year ago I couldn’t imagine myself choosing not to consume anything derived from animals either.
Something I saw on a multitude of blogs were bliss balls Continue reading Aliciouslyvegan: Bliss balls
