Hungarian Potato Casserole

Layered Hungarian potato casserole is my ultimate comfort food.

Hungarian Potato Casserole (Vegan + GF)

One of the national dishes of Hungary, Rakott Krumpli, this traditional casserole is originally made with sausage, hard boiled eggs and tons of sour cream. But not this, not here, not today. My version is vegan, oil-free and as satisfying as it could get. This awesome veganized comforting dish of potato slices, tofu eggs and kidney bean sausage in a creamy cashew sauce makes the most delicious main dish accompanied with pickles or a big bowl of green salad. This savoury bake is a true comfort food, which is also easy to prepare and budget-friendly.

Vegan Olive and Artichoke Tart

Vegan Olive and Artichoke Tart

This olive and artichoke tart (or quiche if you want) is very simple to make, takes just a few minutes to prepare, but tastes absolutely amazing. It’s savory, hearty, loaded with veggies, full of flavor and the texture is basically perfect. Seriously. I’ve experimented a lot with eggless tart/quiche fillings the last months, so I am confident that this version will fool even the most devoted non-vegans. So try it! The mixture of cashew and beans makes a creamy, custardy and rich base, which happens to be also a cheaper version to the only nut fillings and is of course soy-free. This vegan tart will make any lazy weekend brunch a little more special, but it’s also great for weekdays with a big green salad. Plus since it’s delicious cold too, it’s the food you want to take with you to work or to picnics and potlucks.

Spiralized Zucchini, Cherry and Lentil Salad

Vegan Spiralized Zucchini, Cherry and Lentil Salad

This colourful, light and refreshing salad takes only about 15 minutes to prepare with a few simple and fresh ingredients, but it’s a real summer treat. In this salad the tangy tartness from the green apple and the licorice taste from the fennel gets perfectly balanced out with this delicious sweet mustard dressing, the fresh, juicy and ripe cherries, and the crunch and texture of the zucchini and the lentils. This salad makes a great side or light dinner, but you can of course always add some vegan feta cheese, grilled tempeh or toasted walnuts and pine nuts to turn this into an extra filling main dish.

Wasabi and Cucumber Ice Cream

Raw vegan coconut, wasabi and cucumber ice cream is the best damn ice cream ever!

Raw Vegan Wasabi and Cucumber Ice Cream

Best damn ice cream, right? I’m not even exaggerating here. The combination of sweet coconut, fresh cucumber and mild wasabi taste with only a small tingle is a match made in heaven. It’s ‘hot’ and cold at the same time with a bright green colour and a creamy texture. This surprising combo makes a wonderful, refreshing and tangy summery treat. Plus this wasabi and cucumber ice cream is also very easy and quick to prepare, requires only 5 basic ingredients and it’s raw, vegan and gluten-free….
