New cookbook: Vegan for Friends

I love getting inspiration from cookbooks. Sometimes it can be annoying that there are many dishes in a cookbook that aren’t my taste.

Vegan Fish and Chips

I’ve been wanting to make vegan fish and chips for quite a while now. As you might know I love making healthier and vegetarian versions of fast food, like my breakfast pizza or sweet potato burger.
