Korean Potato Pancakes (Gamjajeon)

I’m the only vegan in the family but every once in a while a family member would whip up something vegan in the kitchen. My sister for example would make some yummy Filipino Pichi-pichi, a sweet cassava dessert coated in coconut flakes. Pichi-pichi is her go-to dish for parties because it’s so easy to make…

Vegan Tocino

It’s safe to say that almost every Filipino in the Philippines has tried if not heard of the dish, Tocino (toh-see-noh). That’s because this pork dish marinated in brown sugar and spices is widely popular in almost any Philippine island (and we have 7,107 of them!). I was able to veganize it for my Thanksgiving…

It doesn’t matter if I come up with them or somebody else, that is why I encourage and welcome guest bloggers to share their recipes on this site as well. I’m passionate about promoting my…
