Being a vegan means you've gotta introduce all kinds of meals into your diet if you want to stick to being a vegan. It can be really very discouraging to be one if you are not on the constant seek of something new to try. I am a true foodie and love to eat everyday something different but to be honest, veganism is not at all that popular yet. Yes, there are many of us who chose this lifestyle but the majority of people do not understand why one wouldn't eat dairy products since they are healthy. So eating out can be a little challenging, mainly in Hungary. What's more challenging is to come home to my family in which the men don't consider a meal without a massive amount of meat. Okay, I can always skip the meat part but I need something nutritious to eat, too! And no, I can't eat simple mixed salad all the time as a  a main meal. So I was more than happy when my Mom came home with boxes of bulgur and couscous! Yay, something different! 
Having bulgur at home means tabbouleh, of course! Honestly, I haven't eaten it before and it is so good! It is fresh, loaded with vegetables and complements basically anything perfectly. Let it be fish, meat or grilled vegetables. It is seriously amazing and will be a guest on our plates often. Oh and have I mentioned how easy it is to make? 


2 cups bulgur
1 cup chopped parsley
1 cup chopped fresh mint
2 smaller purple onions
5-6 tomatoes
3 cucumbers
1-2 lemons' juice
1,5 dl olive oil
1 chili
salt, pepper, cilantro seeds 

Bring water to a boil and pour about 3 or 4 times as much water on the bulgur. Let it soak up for 15-20 minutes. 

Chop up the parsley, mint, onions, tomatoes and cucumbers into very small pieces.

Mix the lemon juice with the olive oil and spices. Mix it well. 

Strain the now soft bulgur and place it in a big salad bowl. Add the onions, parsley, mint, tomatoes and cucumbers to it. Stir it together. Add the sauce and mix it well. If desired, add more salt. 


  1. The dish looks delicious, am trying to become a vegan too but haven't really had the courage yet to be one, is it hard?

  2. It's not easy but it's all about what you decide to do. If you want it badly, you will like it! My body LOVES it! It's not like a diet it is a lifestyle so the tough part is when you are with people whom are not vegan. Imagine a get together where all you can eat is pretty much nothing but you can get used to it! I encourage you to go vegan, it is amazing, although I do cheat sometimes :)

Homemade Nutella

I was an exchange student (ah how many times I've said this sentence...) 5 years ago in the US. I'm not gonna talk about how it was (AMAZING) but then and there I gained sisters! Now I have one living in the States and one living in Germany. And next week we are gonna be reunited! I can't wait, I am so excited! So this week I am going to Germany and was thinking what I should bring. Because basically Germany has everything that Hungary has, if not more. So what to give what to give? I was thinking really hard when a completely random thing came to my mind. I should make some nutella. She loves nutella. Frankly, who doesn't, right? I love it, too although it's been years since I ate any. I can't really explain why because I always think that if I eat just one spoon, I will gain a 100 pounds immediately. But with this thought, I shouldn't be eating any brownies, cookies...etc.  BUT today I tried my homemade Nutella. OH MY GOD. I wouldn't have though

Brown Butter Walnut Cake with Chocolate-Mocha Ganache

This post is yet again an example of how I procrastinate when it comes to studying or making a presentation. Whichever. This is going to be a lovely tale about a "magnifique" cake.  I got my inspiration to make that brown butter walnut sensation from  Procrastobaker . It is seriously one of the best things I've ever baked. I do not think the photos do justice when I tried to catch how breath-taking the cake is once a bite lands in your mouth... It is crispy on the outside and so juicy in the inside and the chocolate-mocha ganache goes just perfectly well with it. I changed the original recipe a bit, as I worked with walnuts and I added a layer of chocolate cream inside the cake, as well. Also, it is important to add that it is best one day after it was made. While it chilled in the fridge. Oh my... It was such a hit! Definitely going to make it again...and again... :) But I won't keep you on your toes and fill you in with this lovely recipe!
