Quesadillas with pumpkin, beans and jalapeno hummus

This recipe is truly inspired by the amount of jalapeno hummus I made the other day. It`s so good that I even packed it in a small lunch box with some cucumbers, falafels and pita bread and took it with me to the office. We don`t waste food at home, so I was looking for…

Falafel and jalapeno hummus

In the Middle East we love falafel and hummus! I mean- what is not to love?! There are so many recipe out there, that one can get easily confused what exactly is an authentic falafel. But instead of arguing what is authentic and what isn`t you can just enjoy this recipe! To me this is…

Mac and very delicious sauce a.k.a Vegan Mac and Cheese

I bet vegans out there get very excited when they find good recipe for cheese. We are not vegans at home, but I like to explore new things, and now I started to cook vegan for dinner, which you can see from my last posts. We tried Veggie chili, the famous “pulled pork” sandwiches  and the…

Veggie Chili

When I first told Tom we are having veggie chili for dinner he laughed! Can you blame him?Chili is meat! Well not this one. This recipe is vegan, but so rich and flavorful, we had to fill our plates twice. I choose to top with avocado, coriander and tortilla chips, but you can go ahead…

Vegan “pulled pork” sandwich

Internet is full with recipe videos of this vegan sandwich at the moment, so I decided to give it a try. I found ready to cook/eat jackfruit in Carrefour in Mall of the Emirates. It cost around 11 dirhams per box (it doesn`t say what is the quantity). For 4 sandwiches like the ones on…

Toad in the hole

Toad in the hole is a Biritsh classic. I was told how to make it by my husband and I love it ever since. it`s a good comforting dish, that he usually drowns in gravy and HP sauce. I personally love it with a pint of Guinness 🙂 Ingredients: 120g white flour 4 large eggs…

Sivas Katmeri

Being Bulgarian I was raised to love our cuisine.  One of the things I miss the most is the little bakeries located almost everywhere, offering traditional breakfast pastries. Sadly, we don`t have Bulgarian restaurant here in Dubai, but few years ago I discovered Turkish food. Little I knew of how similar these two are. In…

Veggie coconut curry

Having a good curry for dinner is the most satisfying thing after a long day. With this recipe I went totally vegan as I was curious for the result. I had no idea what a veggie curry could look like, until I went to the shop and found fresh sweet corn, fresh peas and it…

Edamame soba noodles

This recipe is as green as it gets. If you are looking for a booster for lunch, this is the right one. Cook for dinner and pack it for lunch as a salad- it will be equally delicious. In my opinion this is much better than the take out we get around here, as they…

West African peanut soup

This soup is ready in less than 30 minutes, it`s easy, delicious, plant based, gluten free and packed with goodness. What else you need to convince you 🙂 I give credit for the recipe to Cookie and Kate. I changed it just slightly to match with my personal preferences. I hope you give it a go…

Mekici

It’s very similar to the doughnuts, but less sweet and even a bit sour as it is made with yeast.  Mekici are traditionally served generously coated with icing sugar and accompanied by jams, white cheese and even as a substitute for…

Pancakes are every family favorite! In our house we tried so many varieties I can hardly remember. I think you can actually make pancakes with almost everything. I tried recipes with milk, water, pop and now with almond milk. This is currently my favorite! It`s great texture and mild almond flavor. What more do you…
