I grew up eating vegetarian pies usually made with puff pastry and filled with spinach and other delights. I wanted to stick to my favorite filling, which is spinach and leeks and I used tofu to make it creamy and a trick to obtain the perfect leek pattern. This recipe is quite easy and quick […]

Vegan and gluten free oat patties 💚 this is my favorite weekly meal, I have been eating variations of these for ages and even my husband who when we met a few years ago was suspicious of me and my “weird cereals” especially in patties is a huge fan of these. Oat is just magic!  […]

Soft apple cake (vegan)

Apples are just the best, right? Apples are great all year round (at least here), they are good juiced, raw, peel on, peel off, in jams, oven baked, simmered … I could go on forever. I was feeling nostalgic the other day, I haven’t seen my parents in almost a year and I was missing […]
