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!
This section of my website is just starting out, so keep coming back as I add more and more. Do send in recipes that you've altered and created that match with these "guidelines."
Pop right over to my private Facebook group, the Kaffeeklatschers. You'll find thousands of German foodies, all eager to help and to talk about all things German, especially these yummy foods.
I pop in all the time as well, to chat and to answer questions.
Meet with us around Oma's table, pull up a chair, grab a coffee and a piece of Apfelstrudel, and enjoy the visit.
