Rabbit Cafe, my favourite cafe in Auckland

Oh Rabbit Cafe… I think you have the best cafe menu in Auckland. This vegetarian cafe opened in 2017 in Newton, Auckland. The street is on does not have very much foot traffic so its popularity is testament to how good it is. I drove my omni friend from Mairangi Bay to go to Rabbit…

Ratatouille, rice, beetroot pattie and vegan cheese

Sam was coming up with a meal for dinner and put these picks together. It was very delicious and quick to make! The ratatouille came from a can so that just requires heating. Although we realised you can also eat it cold so feel free to do that! The rice is a tomato flavoured Uncle…

Pure bliss at Watson’s Eatery

So we went to Cobb & Co. for some childhood nostalgia with traffic light drinks and decided to get food there too. The reason it doesn’t have its own post is because this is the gfv food we got… Not particularly exciting for $14 nachos… The drinks were swish though So I was still hungry…

Easy Friday night pizza

Friday nights in are the best. What’s even better is something easy to cook that you can bung in the oven. We are fortunate to be staying with friends in Dunedin at the moment and they made us this delicious gfv pizza! Ingredients: Gluten free pizza base Angel mozzarella cheese Tomatoes Tomato paste Capsicum Mushrooms…

The Butcher’s Son

This new Herne Bay cafe is already super popular. It may be noisy but the entire menu is vegan so it’s nice break from having to do your typical gfv food ordering monologue to the wait staff. I’ve been here twice now. The first time I got a Boss breakfast. It was pretty boss. The…

Vegan halloumi! Yes you heard right

My lovely brother Jared bought me a vegan cheese making kit for Christmas. I finally tried it out by making halloumi. I used cheese salt, garlic infused olive oil, tapioca starch, agar agar and a cup of soaked cashews. It says to soak the cashews overnight for 8 hours but you can do it with…

Cashew + peanut butter biscuits

Mum whipped up these gems in just 40 mins! Get your favourite tub of peanut butter and add half a cup to a mixture with gf flour, dairy free butter, cashews, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla essence, cinnamon. Spread into trays and bake in the oven until they start to harden. Enjoy!

Coconut water

Sometimes you just need to get really hydrated quickly. What better way than to drink coconut water from a coconut! You can buy drills specifically to drill a hole in them. Or, if you’re lazy like me, you just order them at restaurants. This one is from Mandala & Co. in Gold Coast, Australia. I…

Mandala & Co.

What a restaurant! Mandala & Co. In Gold Coast, Australia has live bands and a really nice community atmosphere. After reading reviews it is highly recommended to have their pizzas, so I got the creamy mushroom pizza with a GF base. Frickin amazeballs. You are possibly also noticing I have a love affair with veganised…
