Vegan Food Guide – Tallinn, Estonia

Guides

I had an amazing experience recently when I visited Tallinn, Estonia! The beautiful, well-perserved city is worth the visit, especially since it contains an abundance of vegan options.   

In addition to vegan pizza, here are some of my favorites

Vegankohvik Inspiratsioon

I loved the vegan café vibe here. The interior was cozy, bohemian, and I felt comfortable as soon as I walked in. 

My boyfriend and I started out with a Snickers smoothie with peanut butter and date syrup. It was a wholesomely sweet and salty delight – what’s not to love? I will definitely be tinkering around with recreating it at home. 

For our main course I had a vegetable quinoa curry while my boyfriend had a vegan burger. We thought the burger was especially delicious as it was colorful and artfully presented on its plate. For desert we had tiramisu and blueberry matcha cakes.

Veg Machine Balta  

“Veg Machine Balta”, a greasy junk food stand in a food court. I ordered the loaded fries with crispy vöner meat. The girl working at the stand was extremely friendly and offered to change all of our small coins Jackson had from busking. Definitely worth a stop as the food hall itself has a plethora of vegan options.

As I try to travel on a budget, most of meals consisted of oat milk, oats, and other store-bought vegan staples. Although I didn’t get to try as many vegan restaurants as I would have liked, the small taste of Tallinn I already experienced has left me hungry for more. I’m sure I will visit and blog about Tallinn again!

Vegan Zucchini-Carrot Veggie balls

Recipes

I recently made Danish “Frikadeller” my way. My version doesn’t really resemble the traditional kind as it doesn’t contain pork. Something about a cruelty-free, vegan dish makes it taste better than the original. 

These are very simple to make and go perfectly with traditional Danish sides like potatoes, gravy, salad, and bread. 

Hope you enjoy my vegan version of a Danish classic!

Roasted Vegan Butternut Squash with Filling

Recipes

I’ve really been on a butternut squash kick recently. I like going simple by cutting one in half and roasting it in the oven with a little salt, pepper, and olive oil. 

For a delightful little touch I recently tried topping one with mushrooms, snack peppers, and spinach. After adding some chili mayo on top I was in heaven! 

This lazy meal is delicious, simple, and filling!

Oil and Sugar Free Granola – The Best Granola Recipe Ever

Recipes

This granola is so tasty that even after eating it almost every single day for the last 6 months, I’m still not tired of it. The process of making it is also enjoyable as it produces that nice baking aroma (people are always telling me how good it smells!).  

This is a plant-based recipe without the added-sugar found in most store-bought granolas. Its also a great way to get rid of any and all nuts lying around in your pantry. 

Enjoy! I like to eat my granola on top of oatmeal, chia puddings, yogurt, as well as just grabbing a handful out of the mason jar now and then.

5 Ways Veganism Improved my Life

Veganism

I could ramble endlessly about how much veganism means to me and why I think it will change your would and well, that’s what I do on this blog! Here is a personal top five list to feed your clickbait addiction! 

#1 Veganism forced me to discover new fruits and vegetables. I have a newfound love for pomelo, mango, butternut squash, eggplant, green kale, oranges, and rhubarbs! I also discovered the joys of dried fruit (especially coconut) 

#2 Veganism has brought me closer to myself. I really identify with everything being a vegan stands for and it brings me a great deal of peace knowing that’s what I am. We all struggle with finding our inner-truths and how to live them and I have found mine.  

#3 Becoming healthier is almost unavoidable when switching to a plant-based lifestyle. I actually crave vegetables now! 

#4 My choice to become a vegan has caused a domino effect and caused others to change their lives. My family is now almost completely vegan and many of my friends are much more open to different foods. I know my blog will continue to influence others and make a tangible difference. 

#5 I have lost weight and am now able to do much more physical activity. I now do yoga and have run several half-marathons- something I couln’t have imagined a few years ago.

The Best Vegan Scrambled Tofu Recipe

Recipes

If you like a protein dense breakfast but don’t want to eat eggs this recipe will be a life saver. This is one of my favorite breakfasts as it’s easy to eat with lots of vegetables. The texture is very similar to scrambled eggs and if you add black salt it’s hard to tell the difference. 

You can add all kind of vegetables to your scrambled tofu but my favorites are red bell peppers, mushrooms, and fresh spinach. It goes well with ketchup but I prefer to engulf mine in salsa (I’m a salsa freak, sorry not sorry). 

Enjoy it on rye bread, toast bread, or as is! Don’t forget the salsa! 😉

Vegan Avocado Basil Zoodles

Recipes

Hi guys <33

I know my recipes are always good, but man, I’ve really been knocking it out of the park recently. I made this bowl of zucchini noodles (from now on to be known as zoodles) for lunch the other day and it tasted heavenly! The fat creamy avocado dressing goes divinely with the salty sundried tomatoes. When mixed with zoodles the result is to die for!

I suggest using a spiralizer to make your zoodles, although cutting them into thin pieces works as well. Spiralizers can be pretty expensive and you should only invest in one if you think you’re going to use it. I have a cheap one I use exclusively for zucchini and carrots and could ultimately live without it. 

Please let me know how yours turned out!

Lazy Vegan Stir Fry #6 // Curry Veggies with Rice Noodles

Recipes

Hi guys <33

Every time I eat rice noodles I find myself wondering why I don’t eat them more often (I’ve recently had a particular craving for a hot spicy rice noodle soup- let me know your recipes in the comments!). 

I just love these stir fries cooked in a cook- no matter what I throw in it always seems to come out delicious! 

This is a great meal for when you’re craving Asian food on a cold day!

Easy Vegan Breakfast Ideas

Veganism

Hi Guys <33 I thought I would share some of the really basic and easy breakfasts i have had recently. Veganism is not about chia puddings, smoothie bowls, and glutenfree porridge. It can be done very simple!

I recently made this yummy soy lemon yoghurt bowl topped with topped with oat flakes, chia seeds, and walnuts. To accompany it I had two pieces of “knækbrød”; one topped with avocado and salt and the other with cream cheese and green onion. With a nice cup of chai tea, this was a great way to start my day on an unseasonably cold morning.  

This is a bowl of oats, granola, banana, and raisins topped with oat milk. I complemented it with a bun topped with raspberry marmalade and hummus with tomato slices, respectively.

I made these three-ingredient pancakes for my boyfriend on Valentine’s Day. All I did was mash two bananas in a bowl with oats and added oat milk until it reached pancake batter consistency. I cooked them on low heat in a non-stick pan without oil then topped them strawberries and chunks of,chocolate. Super creamy and super easy. 

I’ve been on a whole grain kick recently. I eat them in a bowl of oats, banana, berries, and oat milk. 

I hope my vegan breakfast ideas inspire you to create your own simple, highly-satisfying creations!

Vegan Alfredo Spaghetti with Spinach

Recipes

Hi Guys ❤

This is a great vegan comfort food I serve to friends who say they can’t live without cheese as it is delightfully sticky and satisfying. If you know someone on the fence keep reading! 

This recipe uses my cheese sauce (you can find the recipe here). I usually make a large batch so I can use it again in a different recipe later in the week. 

… and don’t forget that my cheese sauce basically is made out of potatoes and cashews! Healthy as f***! 😉
