Easy Strawberry Jam

Easy Strawberry Jam

I love strawberries! Especially when they’re in season. Sometimes I like adding strawberries to my smoothies and oats, but mostly I like eating them fresh out of the punnet. However, the other week, I made some vegan waffles and I felt like slathering them with some peanut butter and strawberry jam. But the problem is, I don’t have any jam. I’ve stopped buying jams two to three years ago as I find them too sweet for me. Did you know that traditional jam uses 1 cup of sugar per 250g strawberries? That’s insane! So I’ve decided to make my own quick and easy strawberry jam.

YUM! This easy strawberry jam is not only simple to make (you only need four ingredients), but it also tastes soooo fresh. I use raw sugar in this recipe, but you can replace it with your favourite natural sweetener such as Stevia, Norbu or even Xylitol. Nowadays, I don’t mind a bit of sugar here and there, and plus, it’s nowhere near the amount of sugar in storebought jams. Only three (3) tablespoons instead of one cup of sugar used in the traditional jam recipe!

Easy Strawberry Jam

If you ever wanted to make a small volume of jam, without all the fuss of finding jam sugar, pectin, or having to sterilise jars, then this recipe is for you.

Best ever gluten-free vegan waffle

This really is the best ever gluten-free vegan waffle I’ve ever made.

No complicated gluten-free flour mix (one of my pet peeves in gluten-free baking), no egg, no dairy, and no fuss! You just need to throw all the ingredients in the blender, blend, and then you have a thick and creamy waffle batter which will yield waffles so delicious you’ll forget about taking a snap for Instagram (there’s a reason why you haven’t seen any waffle posts on my Instagram account until now)

You just need to throw all the ingredients in the blender, blend, and you have a lusciously thick waffle batter which will yield waffles so delicious you’ll forget about taking a snap for Instagram (Note: there’s a reason why you haven’t seen any waffle posts on my Instagram account until now).

The only ingredient that might be difficult for some to find, is dairy-free yogurt. I make my own soy yogurt so I’m overflowing with this stuff but you can use either use Coyo or any other type dairy-free yogurt you can find at the store. If you’re desperate for waffles and you don’t have the yogurt, you can replace it with 2/3 cup of dairy-free milk. It will change the texture and flavour of the waffles a little bit but they will still be tasty.

These waffles are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, with mildly sweet and nutty flavour. This recipe makes about 6 -8 waffles depending on your waffle pans. I like to make a double batch so I can keep some waffles in the freezer for whenever I feel like one in the morning. The real challenge is trying not to eat the whole batch as you’re cooking it!

A simple yet delicious gluten-free vegan waffle that will blow your mind
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 6-8
Ingredients
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup uncooked brown rice (whole rice)
  • 1 cup dairy-free yogurt (I used homemade soy yogurt)
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil (olive oil works fine too)
  • 1 tbsp sugar or your favourite sweetener
  • ½ tsp baking soda (sifted to prevent blobs of baking soda in your waffle)
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
Method
  1. Pour all ingredients into a blender and for a few minutes until smooth.
  2. Pour enough batter into your waffle pan and cook until crispy. I use a stovetop waffle pan so I cook each side for about two minutes on medium high heat, but just follow your waffle maker's instruction if you’re using an electric waffle maker.
  3. Slather with loads of your favourite nut butter and maple syrup and serve.
  4. Store in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to a month. Just pop them in the toaster to reheat.

The Ultimate Vegan Crepes

Oh crepes! Yummy vegan crepes! I call this Ultimate Vegan Crepes recipe because it is very simple and takes little time to prepare and so it’s perfect for when you’re craving something sweet (or savoury) but can’t be bothered with baking a cake.

It’s very similar to making a pancake batter, but with more liquid. I added allspice to the batter to give it a nice spice flavour and a lovely aroma. If you don’t have it you can skip it or replace it with cinnamon powder. For this recipe I use normal plain flour but you can use gluten-free flour to make it to be gluten free. I also use coconut sugar which you can replace with normal sugar or your favourite sweetener.

You can be creative with the filling. I love to use fresh fruits like sliced banana and strawberries with a generous drizzle of chocolate spread (I’m a big fan of Pure Harvest COCO² coconut and cacao spread). Yum!

How to Make Homemade Soy Yogurt (Without A Yogurt Maker)

Friends, this is the best homemade soy yogurt I’ve tasted (and created). Being vegan and dairy-free, finding a good yogurt is bloody hard. Some are ridiculously overpriced, and some are full of sugar and flavourings. Some taste good but way too rich for everyday consumption (and yes I’m looking at you CoYo).  But this…this is perfect.

Homemade soymilk

It’s creamy, tart, and thick (it can be made even thicker if you could be bothered draining the whey, which I don’t). But more importantly, it is super easy to make.

You don’t need even need a special equipment or a yogurt maker or a thermometer. It’s almost foolproof.

The Steps. It’s easier than you think

Here’s my steps to making this homemade soy yogurt.

  1. Get a good non-dairy starter culture. I highly recommend Belle+Bella which you can get from Iherb. You can also get a probiotic capsule from the pharmacy.
  2. Use a good quality soy milk. I used Vitasoy Soy Milky for this recipe. It’s my favourite at the moment.  Bonsoy also work great
  3. Get an insulated lunch bag and a mason jar. The bag will act as your ‘incubator’ and the mason jar filled with hot water will act as your heat pack to keep the temperature inside the bag nice and warm for your culture.

The secret to making Homemade Soy Yogurt without a yogurt maker

When I was making this soy yogurt for a first time, I was worried that I don’t have a yogurt maker to make it. But then I was reminded of my time as a Microbiologist. Bugs grow… even if the temperature is not optimum. The colder or hotter temperature will just make them grow slower or faster (unless it’s too hot in which case, they will die). So as long they in an ‘okay’ temperature, they will be ok. I know a lot of people are nervous about not having everything in perfect condition for these little bugs but trust me… they’re tougher than you think.

Without a yogurt maker to keep the temperature at the optimum level for the bugs to grow, we need to do something in order to get the same result. And that is by doubling the amount of starter required.

That’s it. That’s the secret.

Homemade soymilk

There you go!

Ingredients
  • 500 ml soy milk

  1. Heat up 500 ml soy milk in a pan until it almost come to a boil. Set aside to cool to about 35 C (warm to touch).
  2. Add a packet of non-dairy yogurt starter
  3. Pour into one of the jars and place it inside the lunch bag
  4. Pour hot water into the other jar and place it inside the lunch bag
  5. Close the bag and let it sit in a dark warm place for 2 days. Taste and if it's ready, place in the fridge to cool.
  6. Add your flavourings.
  7. I use a teaspoon Beyond Latte Ginger Latte Mix to give it a nice spicy ginger flavour.

Best Ever Acai Smoothie Bowl

Acai Bowl

Best ever acai bowl

Nothing like a simple delicious breakfast that requires little to no preparation. Though my go to brekkie is oat porridge, lately I’ve been craving something cooler, like a smoothie bowl.

Now, I’ve made many acai smoothies before, but this time I added something that makes this bowl the most refreshing and delicious acai bowl I’ve ever made and tasted.

Mint.

I added fresh mint leaves on a whim as the idea popped into my head. And it’s a game changer.

The mint flavour is very subtle. You probably won’t be able to taste it if you don’t know it’s there. But it just works so well with the acai and berry flavour. Give it a go!

Best ever acai bowl

Acai breakfast bowl (serve 1)

Ingredients:

• 2 frozen bananas
• 1/2 cup blueberries
• 2 tsp acai powder
• 1/2 cup soy milk
• 1/2 cup water
• 10 fresh mint leaves

Blend all ingredients and then serve with your favourite topping.
I use desiccated coconut, granola, and berries (1-2 tbsp each).

Ginger Bread Donuts

Hey guys… guess what. I made some ginger bread donuts for Christmas. And yes… I’m not the world’s best glazer, so excuse the messy glaze.

But they are delicious!

If you haven’t noticed already, baked donuts are my latest obsession. Any excuse to make them and experiment with different flavours.

If you know me well, I don’t normally glaze my donuts. I’m just not very good at glazing and I’m too impatient for the task. But since it’s Christmas, I’m making a special effort to glaze. Not with your typical sugary glaze though – I just couldn’t bring myself to dip these beauties into a bowl full of icing sugar. Can you guess what I use instead?

How about coconut yogurt mixture! Yep, these ginger bread donuts are covered in creamy, delicious coyo glazing. An unusual combination which amazingly…works! The richness and the slight tartness of the coconut yogurt glaze gives a nice balance the sweetness of the donuts. Yum!

Flourless Vegan Chocolate Cookies

A couple days ago I attempted to make a vegan ‘brain’ lemon jelly for Halloween. It was an epic fail. L I’m not sure if it was the mould I was using, or the ingredients themselves. I used lots and lots of lemon juice, which may have interfered with the gelling nature of agar-agar. It just didn’t set! So I made these instead – charcoal, heart-shaped flourless vegan chocolate cookies. In hindsight I’m glad I failed the brain jelly experiment because this is, frankly, much better.

The cookie texture was almost wafer-like, with crunchy bits from the seeds and the gooey chocolate surprise here and there. They’re flourless, gluten-free, refined-sugar free (if you’re using sugar-free chocolate), and the best thing about them is they do taste like cookies!

These are not your typical Halloween treats but they look the part and, hey, you don’t come to my blog and expect the usual cookie recipes, do you?

flourless-vegan-chocolate-cookies-9-2

The secret ingredients + tips to making the perfect cookies

Instead of using flour we’ll be using our secret ingredient – black beans. You will need a whole can of black beans for this recipe but you can also use dried beans. If you’re using dried beans, you’ll need to make sure you cook them until they’re soft enough that you can squish a bean with your fingers without much effort.

Note that because I wanted to make my cookies as dark as possible for Halloween, I used Dutch pressed cocoa, black tahini and black sesame seeds. You can use normal cocoa powder, white tahini and sesame seeds if you wish. Or you could replace the tahini with peanut butter and use nuts or dried fruit instead of the sesame seeds. Get creative. You won’t break the recipe, I promise.

flourless-vegan-chocolate-cookies-21

I used a five-centimetre heart shaped cake cutter with a pressed lid, but you can also use the back of the spoon to flatten the dough. The thinner the cookies (less than 5mm), the crispier they will be. I recommend baking a test batch before committing to a particular thickness. I like mine a little bit soft so I made my cookies slightly thicker.

Another thing to consider is that these cookies won’t spread during baking so you can place them fairly close to each other and fit more on the one pan.

So are you ready to make healthy, protein-rich, flourless vegan chocolate cookies that are cool enough for Halloween, and taste great too?

You know you are!

The secret to fluffy, pillowy vegan pancakes

Today I will share with you the secrets to perfectly round fluffy, pillowy vegan pancakes that will rock your world.

Blueberry pancake-6

The world (or your mum) may have once convinced you that you can’t make a soft, fluffy baked goods without eggs. But that world is changing now. Welcome to the age of egg-free cooking and baking. We’ve got pancakes, baby.

Soft fluffy vegan pancake

  1. Do not overmix the batter. Use a spoon or a fork to mix it all through, they don’t need to be smooth and God forbid, do not use an electric mixer!
  2. Do not use the batter straightaway. Let the batter rest for about ten minutes to allow the gluten to settle and the baking powder and vinegar to react. Usually this is about the time you need to get your pan out, oil it and preheat it for cooking.
  3. Use medium low heat. Not hot, not low but medium low, meaning slightly on the low side but not too low. Each stove is different and so you will need to play a bit with your stove to figure out the right setting.
  4. Do not use too much oil. You want a very thin layer of oil. You can try using an oil spray or use a paper towel to spread the oil on the pan. You can also use a non-stick pan.
  5. Do not overcrowd the pan. Make one or two pancakes at a time (unless you have a very large pan). If making more than one make sure you leave enough room between each pancakes as the batter may spread a little before they start to puff up.

Bonus Pro Tip: Use an oiled measuring cup to scoop out the batter. This will ensure your pancakes are all the same size and the oil prevents batter from sticking to the cup.

Fluffly Vegan Blueberry Pancake

Let the chicken have their eggs as our pancakes do not need them to puff, fluff and be as the soft, pillowy goodness that they are meant to be.

Now let’s pancake.

Tempe Scramble

One of the things I love to make for breakfast is tempe scramble. It’s perfect for weekend brunch or even for lunch. Actually, it doesn’t really matter what time of the day you have it. Indonesians often eat lunch for breakfast, dinner for breakfast and dessert for at any time of the day so you won’t be breaking any cultural traditions. I know this because I grew up in Indonesia and I’ve had mee-goreng, fried rice and toasted chocolate sprinkle sandwiches for breakfast. People still do.

Tempe is fermented soybeans originally from Indonesia. Yes, the correct spelling is without the ‘h’. It’s pronounced tém-pé, without the ‘h’ sound at the end. Here in Australia (and I guess a lot of Western countries) everyone spells it incorrectly. I’ve started doing that too, just so people know what I’m talking about. But tempe, not tempeh, is the correct spelling, and I will start spelling it correctly now since I’m Indonesian and I should know better.

Tempe Scramble-5-2

I’m surprised a lot of people have not tried tempeh, which is a shame because tempeh is even better than tofu in terms of its nutritional value and wholesomeness. I speculate a lot of people are afraid to try it or they’ve had a bad experience before. Maybe it wasn’t cooked right, or maybe the tempe they used wasn’t fresh. Fresh tempe smells and tastes delicious. The fermentation process that makes tempe (transforming the soybean into a cake or patty form) gives it a firm texture and an earthy mild flavour. It also has the same fermented aroma as cheese. Try to find raw organic tempe if you can. They can be fresh or frozen, but make sure they’re not pre-cooked or flavoured. You can also make them yourself. It takes a fair bit of time and it can be daunting at first but it’s actually quite simple, once you know the tricks of the trade. I sometimes make my own tempe but these days I don’t have a lot of time so I just buy them. I use the Nutrisoy brand and I can say they make great, authentic tempe! You can find them at Indonesian or Malaysian grocery stores.

Tempe Scramble-7

Why I love this tempe scramble

Tempe is great source of plantbased protein, Vitamin B12, iron and probiotics. Tempe scramble is one of the easiest things you can make using tempe. If you have a food processor, you can make it even quicker by chopping all your ingredients (separately of course) using the food processor and all you need to do is cook! Regardless of how you cut up the ingredients, it’s a great meal for when you want to make something fast and it creates an aromatic, slightly crunchy scramble with a somewhat meaty and chewy texture. Serve the tempe scramble with a slice of toasted sourdough bread or some steamed vegetables and you have a deliciously filling meal.
