Deconstructed Fresh Spring Roll Bowl

Vietnamese Deconstructed Fresh Spring Roll Bowl - Light lunch with tons of fresh flavour | Je suis alimentageuse | #vegan #vietnamese #noodle

Deconstructed fresh spring roll bowl; a great and light lunch. One of the best things about eating Viet food is that it's often made with bright, simple flavours and fresh ingredients. Normally, these ingredients would be wrapped in a chewy rice wrap, but my newfound love for food in bowls (I know, it's random) tugged my heart in the direction of foregoing the wraps and just eating it out of a bowl. Katie from Produce on Parade posted this stir fry a while ago with crispy baked tofu and I just had to give it a try. You can honestly top this bowl with whatever ingredients you'd normally wrap … [Read more...]

Vietnamese Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee - Sweeter than hot-brewed, dark, and woody! | Je suis alimentageuse | #vegan #coffee #Vietnamese

Vietnamese Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee - Strong, smooth, and sweet. Shock! It's a post on Wednesday instead of the usual Thursday. Why you ask? Well, I'm writing my last paper of my MA, which marks an end of an era. My academic career is coming to a close (for now...?). My schedule will no longer be dictated by classes, meetings, deadlines, or other school-related functions. I'M FREE! ...almost. I just need to finish this paper. … [Read more...]

Tropical Smoothie Bowl

Tropical Smoothie Bowl | Je suis alimentageuse | #vegan #breakfast #smoothie

Spruce up your breakfast with this tropical smoothie bowl!  If you've been following my instagram at all, you'll know that I've been eating a lot of smoothie bowls lately. My smoothie phase is going strong, and I like that smoothie bowls are a fun way of eating breakfast on which you can waste about 10 minutes making it look pretty, OR you can just whip it up in 5 minutes and just eat it messy like someone who's not obsessed with food. Plus I just like food in bowls. … [Read more...]

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Vegan chocolate chip cookies | #vegan #cookies

Fresh baked vegan chocolate chip cookies with some almond milk... for your inner cookie monster. Womp that photo is slightly out of focus. I apologize. I accidentally dropped a cookie in the milk, I panicked and then thought, what the heck. I love to dip my cookies in milk anyway so I took a couple shots on the swimming cookie and forgot to focus on the rest of the cookies. Oh well. … [Read more...]

How to use Dried Chickpeas

How to use dried chickpeas | Je suis alimentageuse | #vegan #DIY #healthy #unprocessed

Stop wasting money on canned chickpeas, learn how use dried chickpeas for a fraction of the cost. I can't believe how far I've come in terms of my cooking experience. Just 6 years ago, I was still in high school, just starting to experiment in the kitchen with my own lunches. I discovered the deliciousness that is couscous and I'd stir fry broccoli and mushrooms and mix it into my couscous for lunch. I experimented with some foccacia bread and pumpkin muffins. My dad would complain that I should stop baking because my stuff was so fattening yet he still packed my massive muffins to take to … [Read more...]

Vegan Caramelized Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Vegan Caramelized Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Vegan caramelized banana peanut butter ice cream for those days where you want something creamy and sweet. Nothing's more depressing than being turd-tastically sick with clogged sinuses and a nose rubbed raw with 70-cent boxed tissues. My body hasn't acclimatized to the warmer weather yet and soup and hot tea is far too warm for my body to handle right now. So I made some ice cream to soothe my throat and to use up the 6 overripe bananas I had. Yes, I realize it's ridiculous that I had 6 overripe bananas, but it was a large bunch and they all ripened so fast ><. … [Read more...]

Vegan Vietnamese Tamarind Pineapple Soup – Canh Chua Chay

Vegan Vietnamese tamarind pineapple soup (canh chua chay) is a homemade favourite full of tamarind flavour, sweetness from pineapples and tomatoes, and spice from dried chili flakes.

Vegan Vietnamese tamarind pineapple soup (canh chua chay) is a homemade favourite full of tamarind flavour, sweetness from pineapples and tomatoes, and spice from dried chili flakes. Every time I come home to my parent's house, my mom asks me what I want to eat. I either request lemongrass tofu, or canh chua chay (translated directly into English is vegetarian sour soup). I love my soup extra sour, so my mom always adds extra tamarind for me. Back during my undergrad when I'd come home for the holidays, I loved watching my little brother (then around 3-6 years old) would pucker his lips … [Read more...]
