Creamy citrus smoothie

To be honest, I haven't been craving smoothies during this cold winter season. Especially since we have -4 F (-20 C) right now in Estonia. Brrrr! But I can't say no to this creamy and refreshing citrus smoothie. I've fell in love with blood oranges. They are SO sweet and super juicy. Of course you can also use regular oranges or clementines in this recipe. The "secret" ingredient for an extra refreshing taste is half a slice of lemon with peel left on.

Quick and easy vegan noodle stir-fry

One night after yoga and swimming, I was hungry like a wolf! Fortunately I had one pack of my favorite wok noodles at home and dinner was served. Stir-fries are so easy to make. Just throw the noodles into the boiling water, remove the heat and let them soak for a while. Then chop and cook some veggies, drain the noodles, throw it all together, drizzle with soy sauce and sriracha and hello heaven! I'm a total noodle freak. I could eat dishes like that all the time. OK, I'm a total food freak. I could eat food all the time.

Vegan olive tapenade

If I remember correctly, then exactly today ten years ago, I ditched meat. Happy veganniversary to me! A decade? It has gone by super quick. At first, I was really missing some good sandwich spreads. I was in high school and really needed some simple lunch recipes to grab with me. One of my early favorites was this mushroom spread that I still love. Then I tried different tofu products. They weren't that fabulous at first, to say the least. But they were still exciting, since I was 100% sure that I didn't want to eat animals anymore. I still remember that tofu and tomato sandwich that quickly got sodden during a long school day. Now we have so many vegan options at the store and many of them are great. But store-bought sandwich spreads are also pretty expensive, so I love to make my own. For example, this simple lentil and onion sandwich spread is divine, very filling and affordable!

Breaded chickpeas (GF)

The winter days in Estonia are a tiny bit longer now. I enjoy it so much! There is a big difference for me if the sun sets on 4 pm or if it sets on 5 pm. One hour more daylight! So when I finished cooking and photographing today, I still had a chance to take a long walk and enjoy the crisp air and pink sky.

Easy and creamy vegan potato casserole

I've been making this creamy potato casserole for several times now. It's so weird that the last time I ate a classic potato casserole like this, was in my childhood. My grandma really knew how to make the best potato dish! The secret is to cut the potatoes as thinly as you can. That way this fabulous casserole will melt in your mouth. It's extra amazing during the winter season.
