Rustic homemade fresh vegan pasta (without the pasta machine)

We are huge pasta fans and I've been using this recipe for many years now. It all happened one day when my boyfriend proposed to make our very own pasta from scratch. I loved the idea and we gave it a try. It turned out amazing! We didn't have a pasta machine, so a good old rolling pin had to do. You just have to roll it good, so the dough will be thin like a thicker paper. But if you have a pasta machine at home, then why not to put it into a good use.

Vegan four seasons pizza a.k.a Quattro stagioni (yeast free)

When I was a little kid, my family used to buy this pizza from time to time. It was frozen and it had a fancy name - "Four seasons". The pizza had four sections and each section had its own topping. They all represented different seasons. I remember that our pizza had mushrooms, ham and broccoli. I can't remember the last section. Maybe it was tuna? But even then, I was a huge fan of broccoli. It was my most favorite part of the thing. All the pizzas usually had ham, sausage or minced meat on them, so I just loved the idea that a pizza can be topped with juicy green broccoli.

For some reason, this pizza came to my mind again. And I am thankful for that! The memory inspired me so much, that I created my very own version of this old favorite. The outcome was really special and unbelievably tasty. And you wouldn't believe how FUN it was to decorate it and bake it. And even more fun to pick my favorite slices and eat them. So if you want to uplift your mood and get your belly full and happy in the process, this is the recipe for you.

Easy creamy chanterelle sauce (gluten free)

The first day of August. It's been pouring rain like crazy, but we've enjoyed the life indoors. All of the family is together and me and my love have an anniversary today! Twelve years already. When we woke up, my mom had made crispy pancakes with freshly made apple jam. For lunch, I made some curry and we enjoyed it with fluffy basmati rice. Then we heated up our rooms with firewood and soon we will watch some Star Wars. August has been great so far!

But now lets get to today's new recipe. Liquid gold. This is how I call chanterelle sauce. I will never ever get enough of this. Chanterelles just have this extra unique taste and texture. And knowing I can't get them really often, makes eating this sauce even more special.

Vegan mega burger with seitan

You know these people who don't have much appetite when the weather is hot and they say they could live on watermelon and berries? Every time they talk about it, I can only think about devouring my next veggie burger. Very often, my cravings are out of sync with the seasons. When it's winter, I'm munching on fresh tomatoes (bland and expensive!) and in summer, I often want something hearty. The bonus of vegan dishes is that even after a really big meal, I usually feel pretty light. This grilled seitan burger is a perfect summer treat. Only some preparations inside and then you can take the party to the outside, where you can heat up a grill. Or if you are not feeling it, then pan-fried seitan steaks are good on their own.

Rhubarb-herb marinade and spicy tomato-garlic marinade

Summer is in full swing and one of the best things about this warm season is to heat up a smoky grill and enjoy outdoor cooking. I have experimented with many different marinades over the years. But these two are definitely the best ones so far. They just work and all the tastes are balanced. They are not too sour, too sweet or too bland. Instead, you will have a sweet and sour and super flavorful marinade. And a good marinade has to be full of taste.
