Yummy Mondays: Two Vegany Chocolate Delights You Have To Try

Natalie Alice Zigdon4 comments

I think I might just have to admit I have a huge problem here, and as much as I try to eat as healthy as possible I always seem to fall of the wagon and break. Yep. I have an addiction. But its not the alcoholic nor any other self destroying ones (depends of who you ask). I love chocolate! I crave it like a mad person whenever I feel sad, or bad. Whenever that time of the month comes, and whenever that irritating sweet tooth jumps by and bids its hello.

Baked Falafel Goodness

Natalie Alice Zigdon6 comments

I think one of the most undeniably annoying things you’ve got going for you as a vegan is the lack of variety you get when you are actually on a budget.You crave for some substance but most of the store-bought patties can cost a fortune.

The matter itself goes pretty much haywire when you actually have a chef for a brother and an amazing  mom that cooks mouth throbbing foods every Friday, when everybody is just clobbering away during dinner and you end up eating salads and some rice for like the hundred time.

Making Matcha White Chocolate

Natalie Alice Zigdon1 comment

I’ve been Vegan for about half a year now and one of the things I’ve missed most would probably have to be white chocolate. I’ve searched high and low and could not for the life of me find a non dairy version of white chocolate, And if there one thing any of you would probably have to know about me is that when I crave something, I would run miles and miles to get it. So I have tinkered with a couple variation and thought I’d share them with you. FYI, the ingredients are not at all cheap, quite the opposite actually. But if you wanna treat yourself, you might as well do a good job out of it.

Vegan Pecan Lotus “Cheesecake”

Natalie Alice Zigdon19 comments


I have been a vegetarian for most of my life, but have only recently turned Vegan. Though it appears that recent changes did nothing to affect my sweet tooth as my cravings don’t seem to subside as easily. Now I have always loved cheesecake, I mean seriously, who doesn’t? So when my niece turned out to be lactose Intolerant I figured I’ll go all out and made up this bad boy right here, and to be frank? This Saturday morning was the test run and half a cake had managed to disappear in only one sitting. And nobody, and I do mean nobody, could have guessed that it wasn’t the “cheesy” kind of cheesecake. So if you’re looking for a vegan delight, you should definitely give this a try 🙂

Sufganiyot AKA Jewish Doughnuts; The Vegan Version

Natalie Alice Zigdon1 comment

In midst of the holiday season I figured I’d make something special to satisfy my sweet tooth.  Even though this is the last day of Hanukkah, tomorrow will be the first day of christmas so I figured it could be the perfect chance for all of you to enjoy this deliciousness. The original recipe usually calls for eggs, butter and milk, so i did need to make some adjustments. But the taste itself is still brilliant enough to melt your tongue in a blink of an eye.

Vegan Chocolate Truffles

Lets face it, everyone loves chocolate. If you, for some god awful weird reason are not a chocolate fan, than I genuinely feel as if our virtual friendship is doomed to fail.

I am trying, however, to avoid all dairy products for health reason and it can be quite challenging as most of the “deliciously good” chocolate

Theres this desert you can find practically everywhere in Israel that’s called Malabi which I adore. This, being a childhood favourite, I lead to a huge love of everything rosewatery. I like to spray it on my face, add it to cakes and  even invented a bunch of ridiculously tasty cookies with it. This is so good you might actually want to take a step back and reconsider taking a bite, cus ones you take one you might not be able to stop…
