Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com13 Comments

We love making cookies together with the children – they always look forward to our baking sessions every other Sunday. It’s not only fun but it teaches them basic cooking skills. I want to teach them one thing for sure: food is normally made at home, from scratch with fresh ingredients and store-bought ready meals or takeaway are an occasional …

Simple Oriental Stir Fry (Vegan Recipe)

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com13 Comments

Weekday dinners are always about getting the most out of 30 minutes cooking for me. I do not want to spend more time with cooking on a Tuesday night when we just get home right before dinner time after the extra classes for the children. But I want freshly cooked dinner. Stir fries are a quick, simple way to get …

Crispy Parsnip And Onion Fritters

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

Since we don’t eat roasts – there’s not much we can do with parsnips. I like a good tray of roasted root veg or a mash of them –  but sometimes I just crave something different. These fritters are a good way to use them and can be a meal on it’s own (like for me, I could eat mountains …

Vegan Chocolate – Rhubarb Cake Recipe

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com11 Comments

I love rhubarb, I think it’s quite versatile. Mostly I make rhubarb puree with it, which is then great for gin cocktails or adding it as topping to pancakes or milk rice. You can normally get it from March till July so now in April, it’s the best of the season. As I mentioned before, these days I’m trying to …

Super Simple Japanese Vegetable Tempura Recipe

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com1 Comment

I love vegetable tempura for 3 reasons: it’s very simple and quick, it’s very yummy, it helps to use up bits and pieces of vegetables. It’s a great dish and very filling too. It’s my favourite Japanese dish. Tempura is a wet batter used in Japanese cuisine: crisp, light coating to seafood and vegetables. Tempura batter absorbs less oil (and …

Vegan Lemon Courgette Risotto

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I’m a big fan of courgette, so versatile and practically everyone is ok with it (except my children). Taste-wise it is not very significant, this is why whilst browsing ideas on various new ways to use them (I’ve had quite at home, arrived with my Oddbox delivery) decided I wanted to make a risotto with them.  Risotto is always a …

Vegan Banana And Walnut Cookies Recipe

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I’m getting better at vegan cookie making thanks to the rubbish weather over the last few weekends! This one is another “there’s a few things I ought to use up before they go off” type of recipe. Bananas – we always have them at home, but somehow, some of them are always too ripe to eat so they go into …

In Foodie Me, Life by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

This is a sponsored post. This winter has been bad: I was ill for about 7-8 weeks with flu and ended up at the A&E with chest pain, x-ray and antibiotics twice. I wasn’t looking after myself properly and in December I did work a lot – like a lot of other people, just before Christmas. So we do various …

Simple, Soft Vegan Cheese Biscuits Recipe

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com2 Comments

I’m always trying to find ways to turn my favourite recipes into a vegan one. I think, that’s my new hobby. This is coming from my grandma’s traditional Hungarian Mini Cheese Scones recipe, known as “Pogacsa”. It’s very popular. Now, I’ve not only changed the ingredients for vegan substitutes but I also made them as a biscuit shape instead of …
