Welcome to The Greedy Vegan! This is a vegan food blog with a focus on delicious recipes made with fresh, seasonal ingredients. I try to use as much local produce as possible and will be blogging about stores and markets every now and then. Sometimes I even go out and forage for things myself. I am the odd person that you can see at the side of the road picking weird little leaves. For those curious enough about what they are, it’s wild garlic and you can read about it here.
When it comes to ingredients I am not a big fan of faux meats but I might bring them up in some recipes as alternatives. Especially for those who are trying to transition into the vegan lifestyle. However I will stay away from trying to recreate the experience of eating meat. Simply because there is no need for it if you use ingredients that are delicious on their own.
The Greedy Vegan is about living well and eating tasty food while staying healthy. There will be no political, environmental or ethical discussions about vegetarianism or veganism. There are plenty of organizations and platforms for doing so.
The aim of this blog is to show that vegan food isn’t about restricting yourself to eating lettuce and boiled potatoes. Also do not worry, I’m a home cook and the recipes on this blog are affordable and easy to cook. But there will be the occasional splurge and some very indulgent desserts like my avocado chocolate mousse cake, since after all…..
I am Gloria “The Greedy Vegan” …. and this is my way of sharing happiness.
