Chocolate and Biscoff Brownie Recipe (Vegan)

Hi everyone! I’ve really been into baking lately. 

I’ve been invited to my friend’s house which is Gluten allergic and also to dairy -but oh well, no problem for that!

So, by looking into Gluten-free cakes to bake in order to bring it to her house for Tea and Cake, I’ve thought of a brownie.

In the end I kind of created my own recipe, so here’s the recipe for you guys to try out! (The result is really good, I’ve already had many different people that have tried and loved it!)

Biscoff isn’t gluten free, so I just didn’t add it for the pieces I gave me friend, by the way. If you want fully gluten free, maybe try anther spread on top 🙂

Ingredients:

150g Chocolate (Dark, or plain…. Any chocolate that you think it’s the best)

100g Brown Sugar

2 bananas (and an half or three)

1 tps baking soda

100g Vegan butter (margarine)

Lotus Biscoff Spread

Steps (pretty easy really):

1. Turn up the oven to 180 degrees. Get all the ingredients ready. 

2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking soda together.


3. Peal the banana and smash them. 


Add the dry ingredients and mix them.
4. Melt the chocolate and vegan butter, gently. When melted, add it to the other ingredients. Mix.


5. Put the mix on a trail. Dispatch it well. 


6. Put it in the oven for 23 minutes.


7. Take it out the oven when ready. Put the brownies outside to cool it down. 


8. When it’s cool enough, take it in and put the lotus spread all over the brownie. 

9. Let it cool it down again. 

10. ENJOY! ❤

Homemade Blueberry Banana and Pecan Pancakes


My omni (non-vegan) friend told me ‘my cousin cooked me this amazing vegan pancakes, and it has been hanting me for a week, so when you come we have to make those pancakes’. 

I was so happy, knowing that he’s never eating any vegan food and now he’s getting interested about it. And it was actually his first time baking. 

Here’s the link to the recipe, as it’s actually from a cookbook.


We struggled during the night, because he had no vegan butter or coconut oil, so we had to drive to buy some in the middle of the baking time, however it seemed like it’s wasn’t a big deal as they turned out to be super good. Look at those!

Hope it will inspire you. Let me know if you tried the recipe and how did you find it.

See you next time!

Homemade Japanese dinner

Hi everyone.

The other day, we decided to have this healthy and delicious japanese meal for dinner.


We used a rice cooker (Taiwanese style). Put the rice and the veggies as well in it, separately, including Brocolis, Shirtaké Mushrooms and Fried Beansprouts. Well, you can or cannot fry the Beansprouts, but we decided to do it for the taste. 

In the rice cooker, when we put the vegetables, we also added some Very Lazy Garlic and Soy sauce on the top, as well as Olive oil. Then, we let the rice and the veggies cooked for 20 minutes.

Then we served it all, hot, and added black sesame seeds. 

Healthy, tasty, easy, quick, and cheap! And, amazing dinner.

And then, time for some Japanese tea! 

Careful, it’s a spicy tea! But heathly and tasty, so I definitely recommend it.

Enjoy your meal.

Daily Routine, Being Vegan in Sheffield part 3

Hi guys! I wanted to share my daily routine with you, with which food I’m eating in Sheffiled Uni and the one I’m cooking in my home. I’ve already shared about my breakfast and some food I’m used to eat in here, but let’s focus on what I choose to eat depending on the situation.

For instance, when I have time, I try to cook. Cooking brings some hapiness and when you succeed, you feel like you accomplished something great. Haha anyway that’s how I feel. So here’s a meal I love to cook but which takes time, Gyōza/Dumplings. It’s these chinese/japanese ravioli full of Veggies.

It’s really delicious. When you try to find some in an Asian supermarket it’s always out of price so I suggest you to try to make it at home. There’s differents recipes, just type vegan gyoza and you would find one of them. I could also share mine with you, if you’re interested. Leave a comment if you are.

There’s some days where I don’t have time to go home and cook, having only one hour break for lunch between two lectures, so I go to Our Shop, The University’s store and grap one of the Vegan sandwiches. Yes there’s several vegan options! Hapiness!

On the picture I also grabbed a banana and strawberry smoothie from the University’s Café, and a chocolate (but natural? Haha) fruit bar. This bar is amazingly good and it’s being sell so quickly that I only find it once every five time I go the shop.

When I’m lazy to cook and when I feel like a light meal would be enough, I’m making some salad with whichever veggies I have.

This one was with tomatoes, mushrooms, red onions, green olives, lettuce, red pepper and sesames seeds. I added some Soy sauce and optionally sometimes I add some Olive oil for more taste. It’s simple and tasty, that’s one of my most regular meal. I do change the dressing depending on my mood. It can be soy sauce, or yeast flakes, and lately I’ve been using the Henderson’s Relish which is a speciality of Sheffield.

That’s it for this article, I’m gonna do another part of Being Vegan in Sheffield as I’m staying for a year here, I have a lot to talk about. Thanks for reading, don’t hesitate to leave a comment, I would be really happy if you do. 

Cheers!

Asian (Chinese/Taiwanese) tomato soup

Hi guys! So, I went to this Asian store near Vodka Revolution near Division Street last time, and I saw this tomato soup from Taiwan (which is normally for Hot Pot but I don’t have the equipment to do one), so instead of a Hot Pot I decided to cook a Tomato Soup with noodles and veggies. 

All you need is:

  • Asian wheat Noodles
  • Green onions
  • Tomato soup base
  • Mushrooms
  • Cabbage
  • Asperagus
  • Any greens veggies actually
  • Onion powder 
  • Pepper
  • Soy Sauce 
  • Any (red/green/yellow) peppers

This is what I create from which veggies I had in my cupboard and frigde but do as you want. Then you just boil the water with the tomato flavor base, and when it’s boiling add the veggies and the spicies.


Here’s how it looks! It was tasty indeed.


See you guys.
