If you haven’t tried making baked porridge (or oatmeal), you must! This is my new addiction. It’s delicious and super easy to make. Baked porridge is kinda like having pudding for breakfast, but healthier than a pud and you can have countless variations.  I made mine with banana and raisin but you can add anything… Continue reading Vegan banana and raisin baked porridge (Mingau de forno de banana e uva passa)

Vegan coconut little kiss (Beijinho vegano de coco)

I grew up, as probably most Brazilians, eating ‘beijinhos’ at pretty much any party I went to. Beijinho literally means ‘little kiss’ and once you try one you’ll understand why ;). However, the problem with these is that you can’t have just one, like with most sweet little kisses, and they’re traditionally made with condensed… Continue reading Vegan coconut little kiss (Beijinho vegano de coco)

Potato & onion gluten free pizza (Pizza sem glúten de batata e cebola)

So, I don’t eat a lot of pizza. Not because I don’t like it (who doesn’t like pizza?), but because they tend to not only be full of salt but it’s very hard to find a good gluten free pizza. I discovered a little while back that I have IBS, so I need to be… Continue reading Potato & onion gluten free pizza (Pizza sem glúten de batata e cebola)
