My easy vegan recipes are just a tad different from others you'll find online. These need to be German and taste like it, or else something that sort of fits with our German taste buds! This was a challenge. And, who doesn't love a challenge!
The challenge? I'm not vegan! I'm German and German food and vegan food are mutually exclusive. But, I have family and friends who are both German and vegan!
Following is what I've come up with so far!
I needed to find things like a vegan cake recipe that everyone could enjoy. Sometimes I could just make simple vegetarian recipes, but that doesn't always work. I'd try for meatless meals, but again, that doesn't always mean vegan.
Much of my regular traditional German cooking has meat, butter, cream, LOTS OF CREAM, and meat. Did I already say meat? Yes, lots of meat and gravy and cream and butter. I think I'm repeating myself, but you get the picture.
What about my vegan family/friends? I wanted to give them something delicious that wouldn't go against their conscience. BUT, I didn't want to have to go shopping for strange stuff that I wouldn't use again. What I needed to do was some research. I discovered the following:
Those are, of course, the major items in German cooking.
So THIS was my challenge: to experiment, create, find, and make German vegan food!

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!
Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety
Thank you for making the recipes easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!"
