Christmas Dinner: Lebkuchengeschnetzeltes (Gingerbread Ragout)

Die deutsche Übersetzung findet ihr unter dem englischen Rezept!





Our Christmas dinner was lovely... and I relied on a good friend's delicious ideas to make our festive dinner as special as possible. My friend Sarah over at the Krümelküche, the one and only (and amazing) vegan café in my home town Duisburg, once cooked this at a dinner party for a few people. So I made some changes to her original recipe and cooked it for Christmas.

Thai Noodle Soup

Die deutsche Übersetzung findet ihr unter dem englischen Rezept!




Okay, okay, I call it Thai, but this is not an "authentic" (whatever that may mean) Thai recipe. But there is a deli near my work where I go once a week with my colleagues and one of the two (vegan) things that I like there is their "Thai soup". So I tried to recreate the recipe and added a thing or two.

Brownie Cheesecake


Die deutsche Übersetzung findet ihr unter dem englischen Rezept!

When I first saw this cake at the Grindcore House in Philadelphia, I knew I had to have it. :) Brownie Cheesecake. Is there a better way to combine things? After returning to my native Germany, I went to great lengths to develop the perfect recipe. I took me three tries to figure out a good brownie recipe, and my poor friends and colleagues all had to suffer the "not quite perfect" versions.

This is not a recipe that can be done if you don't have a bit of time on your hands. Doughs need to rest, brownies need to cool down fully. I would suggest you prepare the different parts the day before you want to have the cake and assemble the next day.

Some minor changes will have to be made the next time,
but I am already very happy with the first try.


Oh hai! <3

Brownie - More Chocolate, please!

In the course of finding my own recipe for a brownie cheesecake I ate at the Grindcore House in Philadelphia, PA, the first step, of course, included finding a great recipe for brownies! I think I found it!

Smoked Tomato Paprika Sauce

Die deutsche Übersetzung findet ihr unter dem englischen Rezept!


Many thanks to Mr. Squirrel at Camslinger.de for the photo 


I started out making a sauce out of things that had to go for whatever reason: Veggies on the verge of looking less Next Veggie Top Model, open packs of pureed tomatoes from yesterday's pizza... that sort of thing. I ended up with the best sauce ever! It will go well with our Tomato Lentil Bites (filled with Cashew Feta) at my work Christmas party tonight!

Okara Schnitzel!

Die deutsche Übersetzung findet ihr unter dem englischen Rezept!



You made soy milk and have no idea what to make with the leftovers? To be honest, I almost like the leftovers better than the soymilk. But that's because Mr. Squirrel knows how to use the leftovers, which go by "okara." Here is how he did it!
