Colcannon-inspired Vegan Potato soup

Colcannon-inspired Vegan Potato soup

A hearty Colcannon-inspired Vegan Potato Soup with loads of potatoes, leeks, onions, fresh spinach, cannellini beans and soy cream Hello my beautiful friends, recently on TV we heard that the average person in France consumes around 13 liters of soups per year, Fabien and I looked at each other, giggled and said “yeah, right, we probably have 13 liters per month!” :D I guess we do raise the national average by far. As you probably know by now, we have tons of soups in this house and I mostly just make my own recipes as I go. But when one really stands out I can’t help but write it down,...

Vegan Crêpes party (Chandeleur)

Vegan Crêpes party

Hello my beautiful friends! Today in France and some other francophone countries we celebrate “La Chandeleur” (Candelmass). Originally Chandeleur (candlelight festival) was an ancient Pagan and Latin festivity – its etymology is festa candelarum, and it later became a Christian religious festival corresponding to the Presentation of Christ in the Temple. Chandeleur is celebrated exactly 40 days after Christmas. In France, Belgium and parts of Switzerland Chandeleur is still celebrated in some churches on February 2nd, although nowadays it’s best known as “the day of the crêpes”, which is a perfect excuse to eat savory and sweet crêpes as both the main course and dessert for a real Vegan Crêpes...

Last minute gift idea: homemade Vegan Irish Cream Baileys + freebie

Vegan Irish cream Baileys

Still wondering waht to gift for the holidays? I’ve got you covered! :-) Booze is not something you’ll find anywhere else on this blog, nor in my life. I don’t know exactly why, but somewhere during my life I made the unconscious decision of simply not liking spirits, wine, beer nor any other alcoholic drinks. Some people think that’s kind of lame, or boring – but I don’t mind. I often joke that my taste buds haven’t evolved much since when I was 12, as it’s pretty much the case (besides the fact that now I like things like garlic which I used to hate during my childhood). But there...
