Hey! I’m Julian and I created this blog to post some of the Italian recipes I’ve been adapting ever since I became vegan. Being Italian and having a ridiculous passion for Italian food, becoming vegan seemed to mean that I would have to give up some of my favorite foods. Luckily, all it took was a bit of looking around on the internet to figure out that all it takes is a little bit of creativity to re-create the tastes of all of my favorite foods.
There are already some absolutely incredible vegan recipe blogs out there – Mouthwatering Vegan and Maple Spice are two of my favorites, you should check them out – but while I’ve loved the majority of what I’ve seen and tried, their Italian substitutes aren’t quite enough. It’s just those small things that are missing; they’ll have some excellent ideas, but the meaning of the food itself has been altered, and lost a bit of the magic.
I don’t know if anyone is ever even going to look at this blog, and, in fact, I made it more to just keep track of things I made. I tend to experiment a lot in the kitchen, which, besides from creating an irritating mess for my flatmates, means that a lot of the things I eat I won’t be able to eat ever again – simply because I forgot how it was I made it! By forcing myself to take pictures and write the recipe of things I’ve just done, I can make sure that doesn’t happen. Anyway, hope you do enjoy taking a look around and that some of these foods inspire you. It’s great to be able to eat the best food in the world, ethically.
