Arugula and Baby Kale Salad 2

Today is a good day: I’ve just bottled my first batch of kombucha. It’s not quite done yet, it still needs to go through its second fermentation, but so far, so good! Feeding my kombucha habit has become quite expensive, so I hope this will save me money and allow me to make my kombucha exactly the way I like it.  Now I’m counting down the hours until I get to try my first bottle.

Chocolate & Goji Berry Chia Bars!

For generations we have sprouted chia seeds on silly shaped terra-cotta pots. Maybe we ate them, maybe we didn’t. But that was about as far as our relationship with chia seeds went.

Now, however they are one of those super foods we can’t get enough of. We eat them in puddings, we put them in our smoothies and of course, we put them in energy bars.

Argentina: Raw Alfajores!

Argentina is the next and last stop in South America for our VeganMoFo world tour! 

It was eight long years ago that I visited Buenos Aires and I’m sure that in the intervening period much has changed, but much has probably remained the same.

I remember that I really enjoyed walking the streets of the city and exploring its neighborhoods. I loved the Recoleta Cemetery, with its rows and rows of elaborately decorated crypts and mausoleums, including that of Eva Peròn.

Morocco: Raw Tagine with Cashew-Jicama Couscous

Today we make our last stop in Africa on our VeganMoFo world tour! Morocco, on the continent’s north west, has a bit of a romantic mystique about it. Perhaps it is because of the movie Casablanca, or perhaps it is because life seems to go on there as it has for centuries. The lively medinas, with their affront of smells, colors and textures; the rituals associated with drinking fresh mint tea; the preparation and sharing of incredibly delicious food are all the same as they have always been. And these things at least, really shouldn’t change.

Mozambique: Bananas com Creme de Coco

Today on our VeganMoFo world tour we head north west to Mozambique.

I’m not sure why, but I could only find a couple of not so good pictures from my first trip to Mozambique, even though I’m sure I took more then and the last time I visited. Either it’s all in my head, which is a possibility, because the images in my mind of Maputo are so vivid, or I’ve somehow lost them.
