Amazing vegan sushi with omelette and pan-fried eggplant

I'm engaged, ya'll! It feels so great to finally share these news with you. Why I announce it with a sushi recipe? Because sushi has a special place in my heart. It was a gorgeous May afternoon, when my best friend and the love of my life got on one knee and asked me to marry him. After that, he brought us that incredible avocado sushi from a town near to us. The place is operated by friendly young women and a full set of sushi costs 3 euros (that is 3,5 dollars). We always get at least three sets, because it's so good. Sushi has been one of our favorite foods to celebrate something special (in addition to lasagna). It's especially great during these hot summer days. A perfect cold snack that is also festive.

Delicious one-pot veggie pasta with chickpeas (gluten-free)

Just one day I realized that I haven't made separate pasta and sauce for a long time. One-pot pasta has been our go-to dinner for quite some time now. It's just so wonderful. First, it's so easy to make, since you only need one pot and you don't need to drain the pasta. Second, it will stay super moist for a long time, making it a perfect make-ahead dinner. If you are heating it up, just add a dash of water or cream and tiny bit of salt. Third, it contains a load of veggies! I know, you can't tell by the picture, but it really does. So it's a great way to eat more of those healthy fellas. I obviously added a ton of zucchini, since it makes this pasta super juicy and it's also a zucchini season

Vegan potatoes and eggs

I just came from riding my SUP board and swimming afterwards. It was super refreshing and for a Pisces like me, it was heaven on water. Since it was an evening, the Sun was so mellow and it was truly a golden hour. Talking about the Golden Hour, I've been really enjoying Kacey Musgraves' latest album. Such good summery tunes, especially when driving a car. 

But this dish...if you're ultra hungry like me after some fun in the water, then it's good to whip up something extra quick and hearty. Like these crispy potatoes and "eggs". I've been making this version for quite some time now to beef up my regular pan-fried potatoes. It works every time and it's especially delicious with some green onions and creamy tomato salad.

The best vegan barbecue recipe

"I ain't here for a long time, I'm here for a good time. So bring on the sunshine, to hell with the red wine, pour me some moonshine." (George Strait)

This song kept playing in my head, while I was chewing this crispy, smoky and utterly delicious vegan barbecue. We sat outside in the sun, enjoyed the smell of the lilacs and daffodils and sipped some cold foamy beer. Not quite moonshine, but it paired perfectly with this plant meat. I've waited for so long to finally publish this recipe. Since the barbecue season is already in full swing, I couldn't think of a better time. I know you guys LOVE my super easy vegan seitan steak recipe. Well, I took the same recipe, added marinade and turned it into an amazing barbecue. I will also include a completely gluten-free version below, so don't worry. You will have your vegan barbecue and eat it too!

12 best vegan summer recipes

I've enjoyed May so much. The weather has been wonderfully sunny and hot. It's 70 F / 20 C every day. When I was choosing my favorite summer recipes for this post, I took a break and went outside. Just sitting there in the sun and listening to the nature was so relaxing. In Estonia, May is usually one of the most beautiful and warmest months. June on the other hand is like a classical Estonian summer, which basically means just winter with mosquitoes. Okay, it's not that bad. Or is it? One year we had the same temperature on Midsummer as on New Years. Since we had a rather cold winter, I'm hoping the summer will be warm and sunny this year. In that case, I have made a round-up of the most fabulous light and delicious summer recipes. And by that I mean barbecue, marinades, cold soups, salads, pies and my summer favorite - rhubarb cake. Happy cooking!
