Quinoa Patties

Die deutsche Übersetzung findet ihr unter dem deutschen Rezept!

It's early Janury - New Year's Resolutions are still fresh. I did not really make any specific ones, but the whole "eat clean, work out, be kind, spread happiness" thing is always there. That's always good.I have been told that my junk food is healthier than some people's regular food, but that doesn't mean that I need to lower my standards. :)

The main reason for my not so healthy eating habits can be found in occasional laziness and the "but I'm hungry NOW!" moments. So I made a few things yesterday, tripled the portions and made serving-size containers full of deliciousness that went into the freezer. Among these edibles were these quinoa patties. I froze them in batches of four, so I could combine them with other stuff for varied meals.

Red lentil veggie soup, hummus, quinoa patties, fried eggplants and
zucchini, fresh and sundried tomatoes.
Many thanks to for the picture. <3

Donuts / Berliner

Die deutsche Übersetzung findet ihr unter dem englischen Rezept!

In Germany, donuts of the American kind (including the major donut chain shops) exist. However, the storebought kind is never vegan - at least I have never encountered any. There are German donuts whose names vary depending on the region you find yourself in. Berliner, Pfannkuchen, Krapfen... They are usually round, dusted with powdered sugar and filled with some type of jam. This recipe works for your regular O-shaped donuts and any other shape you like - including the type that is filled with jam. :)

We had these at our most recent birthday party and a lot of people who said they usually did not like Berliner, really enjoyed them!
