My Vegan Scrambled Eggs recipe is a fusion of both vegan versions. As much as I enjoy the tofu scramble with cumin, I miss the…

Lately I’ve been more into green smoothies for breakfast, but that doesn’t stop me from eating hearty breakfast food like rice, “eggs”, and “sausages”. I just have them later in the day. Besides, having breakfast food for lunch or dinner seems fun. I always get giddy when I see the words “breakfast food served all day”…

Avocado and Squash Quesadilla

I have to admit, there’s no queso in this Avocado and Squash Quesadilla, not even a vegan queso. Not one speck of a nut-based cheese. Another confession: I was originally planning a cashew cheese quesadilla. After learning I had run out of raw cashews, I dismissed the idea of making this recipe and moved on. After all,…

Every time my sister is in town, she has only one request for me to make her. She would always ask for my “Ginataang Kalabasa at Sitaw“, or “Squash and Yardlong Beans in Coconut Milk”. It’s almost a no-brainer. I don’t even bother to ask her sometimes. We recently celebrated her birthday and sure enough, it was…

Sometimes people ask me, “Is it hard to go vegan?”. They seemed baffled and amazed, presuming veganism is challenging and daunting at the same time. They would admire my work as “going the extra mile” to sustain my lifestyle. I was once in their shoes, so I rather not give them attitude and feel offended. Instead, I like…
