But we all know you can’t plan an adventure now, can’t you 🙂 Well, enjoy every step through this vegan heaven!

Spring Tagliatelle / Пролетни јуфки

(Serves 4) / (за 4 лица) I don’t think I’ve done this before – mixing cooked and raw ingredients to make the most awesome spring meal. And now that I realize this I don’t know why it is so. This is so easy to make, and so full of nutrients. Explosive colors and equally amazing taste. Enjoy!

Potato Burgers / Ќофтиња од компири

(Yields 20 burgers) / (излегуваат 20 ќофтиња) Ingredients 1 kg potatoes 150 g olives 4-5 scallions 3 large sized garlic cloves 1 cup polenta 2 Tbsp flax seed, freshly ground Salt Turmeric Mixed pepper, freshly ground Sumac Unrefined grape-seed oil

Urnebes Salad / Урнебес салата

(Yields 400 ml) / (излегува 400 мл) Vegan picnic today! Yay! This is one of the recipes we made. People (non-vegans) that tried it said it tastes exactly the same as a regular dairy-loaded salad. I will be sharing all the recipes from today’s menu with you soon, personal post with pics from the picnic…

Aromatic Olive Bread / Ароматично лепче со маслинки

(Makes 1 loaf) / (излегува 1 лепче) This was also a great hit at the vegan picnic, along with these irresistible vegan snickers bars. It abounded with a myriad of different, yet harmonically combined, aromas. Whether you’d be using this with sandwiches or as a canapé base you won’t go wrong 🙂

Homemade Peanut Butter / Домашен путер од кикирики

(Yields one small jar) / (излегува една мала тегличка) I’ve never really liked peanut butter much, but becoming vegetarian, and later a vegan made me enjoy trying out new stuff. One of the things that I also enjoy doing is thinking of new interesting ways to incorporate old ‘boring’ recipes into delish food combos. Sometimes I like it…

Eggplant Pâté / Паштета од модар патлиџан

(Yields one 600 ml jar) / (излегува една голема тегла од 600 мл) Ingredients 1 large sized eggplant 1 Tbsp mustard 3 Tbsp vegenaise 1/2 handful coarsely chopped walnuts 2 large sized garlic cloves Salt Mixed pepper, freshly ground

Vegan Lava Cakes / Вегански лава колачиња

(Yields 11 cakes) / (излегуваат 11 колачиња) I can tell you this much. This recipe sure didn’t begin as a lava cake. I was trying to make three ingredient banana cookies when I realized I’d put too much liquids in. So I had to add flour… and while I was at it I added baking powder too……

Beer Baked Potatoes / Компири печени со пиво

(Serves 4) / (за 4 лица) These were a big hit when I made them last summer at the IKAR Hut. Too bad I got burnt from the tray and ended up spilling half of them on the kitchen floor, but hey, I’ve already admitted I’m a disaster waiting to happen when it comes to cooking….

Olive Hummus / Хумус со маслинки

(Yields one 600 ml jar) / (излегува една тегла од 600 мл) Today, March 20th, is the American Meatout Day. It’s an internationally observed day when the public is exposed to to the joys and benefits of a plant-based diet, while promoting the availability and selection alternatives to meat and dairy in mainstream grocery stores, restaurants,…

Toasted Shiitake / Тостирани шитаке

(Serves 2) / (за 2 лица) Shiitake, my fav mushroom! This is the first time I’m preparing it like this. If you’re out of time and you want to eat something healthy, yet tasty, I highly recommend this. Combine it with regular veggie salad, potato salad, pasta..the possibilities are endless, it just goes so well with…

Moussaka / Мусака

(Serves 4) / (за 4 лица) First of all I want to apologize for the messy picture. If only we hadn’t been so hungry and actually waited for the dish to set before we ate it, you could have gotten the real picture – inviting layers of yumminess! The literal meaning of the Arabic root of…

Spinach Risotto / Ризото со спанаќ

(Serves 2) / (за 2 лица) Another one of my favorites for this spring. I love combining spinach with carbs. It’s a new thing for me. I hated spinach when I was younger, but ever since I became a vegetarian (and later a vegan) – I let in all those stuff that I kept at…

Šopska (Salad) / Шопска (салата)

(Serves 2) / (за 2 лица) I’m fully aware that this recipe is not going to be interesting for my Macedonian readers, because I don’t think there is a Macedonian in the world that doesn’t know how to make it, but compromises have to be made 🙂

Fattoush / Фатуш

(Serves 1) / (за 1 лице) Oh_my_God! Do I love this salad!!! Me and bf were running late for a book promotion tonight, but still somehow I managed to lick the bowl clean (and yes, I mean it literally, are you judging?). So I’d say this salad is finger-licking good, but that wouldn’t do it…

Cornbread / Пченкарен леб

(Makes one 1 kg loaf) / (за 1 леб од 1 кг) We have this bread maker and I’ve been searching for a decent cornbread recipe ever since we bought it. No luck though, so after much painstaking trial and error I finally managed to make the perfect cornbread myself. It’s as good as those mouth watering corn…

Falafel / Фалафел

(Yields 20 burgers) / (за 20 ќофтиња) I’m a philologist, so it’s only natural that I waste c.a. half an hour trying to find the right spelling of the word ‘falafel’. Even though Oxford dics list it primarily as ‘felafel’ with ‘falafel’ as an alternate spelling, Arabs beg to differ. They don’t have the short…
