Wow, another one of these large rice dishes that I make for the week!

Rich Mini Chocolate Mousse Pie

Seriously, avocados are a miracle. They make the perfect butter substitute and I know what people may think. Ew, how can you mix an avocado with something sweet? Wouldn’t the taste get all messed up? Well, great news is, no it does not do that at all! Actually, the first time I tried making an avocado dessert was mixing it with frozen bananas and I just couldn’t believe how good it tasted. Here, we have a rich dessert that taste as amazing as anything chocolate would, and great news is – avocados are healthy! Continue reading

Wow, my first time ever making homemade breading! I actually wanted to do it from scratch because I never really trust those store-bought ones. Since I also had a big lump of bread I bought from Trader Joe’s, this was the perfect opportunity to make it.

This recipe was very inspired by the Crispy Baked Onion Rings on Oh She Glows. Continue reading

Celery and Carrot Stir Fry

This is one of those dishes that I always k new I would like, but never really thought about cooking it until I tasted one of the GREATEST vegan cafes I have ever gone to, and that is Dr.J’s Vibrant Cafe in Downtown, LA!

Their bowls totally blew me away and one of them had celery, carrots, cilantro and a bunch of other amazing flavours. I had to recreate something similar, just to fulfill my taste buds, since I miss that cafe like crazy but sadly I don’t even live in that area, so I can’t really go there as I want.

This is one of those few dishes where I really love the taste of celery, as that’s something I tend not to eat a lot. Continue reading

Chocolate Nut Cups with Cherry Coconut Topping

I must have dug a goldmine when I discovered cherries can be made into jam and used as a sweetener. The only real pain is to pit them because they can be so hard to take out, and it takes ages to do a big batch. But, it’s sure worth it.

I think I got inspired to make this remembering in the old days, there was this candy bar thing with cherries and coconut in the middle. I don’t even remember the name, but I’m here to healthify any food I can think of, so I want to try making this. Continue reading
