8 best vegan zucchini recipes

It's a lovely summer afternoon in our tiny forest cabin and I just finished making our lunch. This time I made one-pot pasta with zucchini, mushrooms and tomatoes. I was thinking why not to make a little round-up of zucchini recipes for you, since so many of us have these huge green veggies and sometimes no idea how to use them. Right now, I'm putting zucchini almost into every dish. Pastas and curries are my favorites.

For today's pasta, I heated up a thick-bottomed pot and added olive oil. Then I added chopped onions and cooked them for a couple minutes. After that, I added cubed zucchini and chopped white mushrooms. Cooked for a couple of minutes and added some fresh chili, garlic, salt, pepper and gluten-free pasta (Panzani makes the best ones). After that, I poured boiling water on top of everything, gave it a good stir and covered the pot with a lid. I let it boil until the pasta was almost soft. Then I added chopped tomatoes and herbs and cooked for a couple of more minutes. I served it with drizzled olive oil and some nutritional yeast. So summery, light and delicious.

Cold beet soup with cashew "kefir"

Sunny hello from summery Estonia! How is summer treating you so far? We've had many rainy days and rather cold nights, but at least there's some sun and warmness now. I'm glad we had a wonderful vacation in Monaco in June, otherwise I'd be so sun hungry right now. But Estonian summer is breathtakingly gorgeous. We just celebrated my dad's birthday and the weather was perfect, along with people and food. And my mom's garden is out of this world. She works so hard and it shows - everything is so lush! From chilies and herbs to tomatoes, beans and veggies. I'm hoping we will have some beautiful sunny days in August. In that case, I will definitely make this cold beet soup again. It's SO good!

15 delicious vegan recipes for beginners

I've been planning to write this post for a very long time now. I often receive letters from people who ask me what should they eat now that they've become vegan. In addition to that, I've seen that a lot of people don't have much experience in the kitchen. So if you are a beginner vegan and a beginner cook, it may all seem so difficult and hard. But hey, it isn't! I will lend a helping hand.

I made a little round-up of my favorite easy vegan recipes. They are suitable for beginner vegans and also beginner cooks. All the recipes here are super easy and delicious. To be honest, most of my recipes are rather easy to make, but this selection is based on your previous comments and taste. I also thought about the recipes that helped me in the beginning. I would love to read in the comments if any of my recipes have helped you in your vegan and cooking journey!

Sweet potato and green pea soup with lemon

Happy June, my dear food lovers! If the mosquitoes don't eat us alive, I urge you to make this wonderfully comforting and colorful soup. Really simple ingredients but rich in taste. Just the way I like it! This time I wanted to use sweet potatoes instead of the regular ones and added green peas, incredibly aromatic lemon and tomatoes for balancing the sweetness. This soup is perfect when served with loads of fresh herbs.

I also recommend to check out these great vegan barbecue recipes and bake this deliciously fluffy rhubarb cake!

Sweet and sour Chinese cabbage

The Chinese cabbages right now are so wonderfully green and lush. Usually I make different salads out of them or use them in warm dishes. They are really cheap and contain loads of calcium, vitamin C and fiber. But the thing with Chinese cabbage is that I'm always left with these firm white stems that I don't want to use in raw salads. So basically they just sit in the fridge until I throw them away. Is this sight familiar to you?
