Haupia, Coconut Pudding

Picture from here Sometimes I browse the bakery section at normal grocery stores to see how horrible those innocent looking treats really are to remind myself why I am vegan. I know that sounds weird, but I wish everyone would do this just once….

Hawaiian Mac Salad

When you order a Hawaiian plate lunch, you can be certain of two things: large portions and macaroni salad. They usually aren’t vegan so I have to order all rice instead.  But to keep up with my Hawaiian post trend, I thought I should…

Pineapple Fried Rice

What could be more Hawaiian than pineapple? To learn about the history of pineapple in Hawaii, visit the Dole website, they explain it better than I can. FYI,  the maze at the plantation on Oahu is hard. Pineapple is very sweet and juicy. I…

Purple Sweet Potato Salad

I realized I live in Hawaii but haven’t made any Hawaiian food yet! So the next few posts will be devoted to Hawaiian dishes. I knew sweet potatoes came in other colors, but I have only seen orange on the mainland. The first time…

Humintas: Bolivian Tamales

  After receiving my package from Bolivia, I researched Bolivian food.  While majority of it isn’t vegan, because it uses fresh ingredients and simple cooking methods, it can easily be adapted. After looking at many mouth watering recipes, I saw humintas and knew I…

Oh my God. This is one of the best things I’ve ever made. I had Daiya cheddar left from my Mexican Pizza, and couldn’t face another burrito (I’ve been eating them all week for lunch). I already planned on making collard-green-style Swiss chard, so…

"Cheese" and Veggie Pizza

I haven’t made a “traditional” style pizza in a long time because I don’t like most vegan cheese—and because I like my hummus version better anyways. There was a sale on Daiya cheese so I thought I would give the mozzarella a try since…

Taste of the South: Collard Greens, Black-eyed Peas, and Fried Tofu.

One of my favorite vendors at the Hilo Farmers Market had a special on greens—kale, Swiss chard and collard greens. I got a bunch of each for only $5 total. Like I said before,  your local farmers market will always have the best deals….

Mexi Pizza

Sorry I haven’t posted recently. Finals week and moving to a new place kind of sucked up all my time. But now I am finished with the semester and all settled into my apartment (that’s right, no more dorms!). I went to Walmart to…
