Tofu & Shiitake Dumplings

I fell in love with dumplings after travelling to China for the first time―I ate them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I desperately needed a vegan version of these in my life, and that is how this recipe came to life…

Quick & Easy Mango Sushi

 

I had some perfectly ripe mangos laying around and I wasn’t sure how to incorporate them in my meals… when I thought about my high school days when my friends and I would visit an all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant after school. Despite the lack of freshness and originality of the restaurant (that is another story), all three of us were obsessed with the *mango sushi*. There is something about the freshness and boldness of a mango that really works with nori and rice. So, I decided to recreate those rice rolls! I tried to use healthier ingredients (I decided to ditch the plant-based mayo) and tried to make it more simple. I was finished with my rolls in 10 minutes…and I am slow in the kitchen. Hope you enjoy this simple recipe!

Caitlin Shoemaker’s Macaroni Salad

*Not a recipe post!* Last weekend, I decided to have a little BBQ. It was a hot summer day, and I wanted to make something that we could enjoy outside in the sun! I made some GUSTA vegan sausages and served them with Caitlin Shoemaker’s macaroni salad. You can find her recipe here! It was really delicious and I got a lot of compliments about it. It’s perfect for summer picnics, bbqs, as a side or even as a lunch on its own. You should really try it out. The sauce is to die for! Enjoy!
