Classic Apple Pie

Muesli Breakfast Cookies

Vegan Seaweed Burger

Vegan burgers can be as interesting as you want them to be. You can experiment with various beans, lentils and other legumes as a base and then add a flavour twist to them.

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

Vegan Hot Dogs

I associate hot dogs with summer BBQs, evenings at the beach and breezy nights on the roof at home. But it is not often that we have hot dogs at home, since we try to stay away from packaged food as much as possible. Having a good sausage is the key here… and what is…
