Easy vegan carrot cake

Hey ya'll! I'm back from Monaco and flew right into crispy cold and snowy Estonia. It's freezing outside but so cozy inside. A perfect time to bake this wonderfully easy vegan carrot cake. I've discovered a couple of nuances to make this cake really perfect. First - cover it with frosting and let it sit in the fridge at least over night. It's one of those cakes that keep getting better the more they sit. So when at first it tends to be a little dry, then after a night in the fridge it's perfectly moist and delicious.

Vegan salmon soup

Bonjour from Monaco! We've been here for a few days now and I must say the weather is pretty crazy here. One night we had a rain storm with thunder and epic wind. The yachts were bouncing up and down in the port and everything seemed so different. I've been here for a few times and I've never seen the rain before. But against all odds, we decided to give in to our burger craving. I heard that the nearby sports bar Stars 'N' Bars had a vegan menu and we had to give it a taste. When we sat down on the second floor, they gave us modern digital tablet menus and we started browsing.

10 vegan breakfast ideas

Happy and healthy 2018, my dears! I've heard that happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory. I can't help you with the last one, but I can surely lend a hand with the healthiness part. I'm sure you've had these mornings where you have no idea what to eat or what you crave. No need to worry about it any more! Hopefully this post will help you out and give you some new ideas on how to start your day with delicious nourishing food. 
Breakfasts are really individual and personal when it comes to taste. I've seen so many preferences. In the early hours of the morning, some people can only fruit, while others (like me) have no problem devouring greasy pan-fried potatoes. There are cereal people, sandwich people, yogurt people, porridge people and smoothie people. Or folks that eat everything together. There are so many options and the best thing to do is to eat exactly what you like and what suits you the best.

Vegan hash brown burgers (rösti)

I just had to make myself a bowl of quick oatmeal before starting to write this post. It's impossible to do it with an empty stomach. These burgers were born during the project where me and my mom were making her fluffy multigrain buns. Buns like these just have to have an equally delicious patty. This time, I really wanted to try hash browns and see if they'd work as a burger patty. Of course they did! Crispy hash browns made with fresh grated potatoes and served with homemade cashew-horseradish-dill sauce, baked beets, pickles, arugula and red onions make a wonderful vegan burger! All our family enjoyed it and I'm so happy to share this recipe with you.

Easy red lentil and vegetable soup

I know, the recipe title might seem a tad boring and who hasn't made lentil soup before, but hey! This soup is so amazing in its simplicity and taste. It has been my latest favorite and I make it all the time. Even my dad and mom really loved it when I made it for them. I love how the veggies boil into a flavorful broth and red lentils give the needed heartiness and creaminess. I like to boil the lentils until they are mushy. That way the soup has just the right texture. Al dente lentils give me the shivers and not the good kind. This soup also reminds me of split-pea soup, so basically it's a quick and easy version of it.
