Pumpkin waffles

It’s that time of the year! Pumpkins! As you could see in one of our previous posts, we have dozens of pumpkins from our garden. Luckily pumpkins are very versatile and can be used in anything from soups to desserts to baking. I like these pumpkin waffles a lot: light and crispy! Feel free to replace the sugar with another sweetener (or you could also try leaving it out altogether). I either use freshly made pumpkin puree, or a portion that I prepared previously and stored in the freezer, on those occasions that I don’t have the time to cut and clean the pumkin.   Ingredients vegan pumpkin waffles Makes 6 double waffles (like the one in the photo) 1 + 3/4 cup (275g) all purpose flour 2 1/2 ts baking powder 1/2 ts baking soda 1/2 ts salt 2 ts ground cinnamon 1 ts grated or ground ginger 1/2 ts ground or grated nutmeg 1/4 ts ground cloves +++++++++++++ 2 cups (475 ml) soy milk 2 cups (425g) pumpkin puree (= a small hokkaido pumpkin, see photo) 5 …

Yummie food @Vegan music festival Ieperfest

Ieperfest is a 3-day hardcore music festival, just outside Ypres (Ieper, 75km from Bruges, Belgium). Since day one, more than 20 years ago, all the food at Ieperfest is vegan! So we went to check it out on day1! To listen to some bands (a trip down memory lane for one of us!), hang out, relax, and get a general impression of the atmosphere. But especially to taste the vegan food! It’s pretty rare to find vegan food at a music festical, so to have all catering fully vegan (and most of it organic too) is really extraordinary! Not having to ask whether the fries are baked in vegetable oil, being able to order food without worrying about hidden ingredients! What a relief! And plenty of choice too! Vegan food catering at Ieperfest: This is what we ate at Ieperfest: For refreshments, there’s of course plenty of beer available, but it’s nice you can also drink organic apple or orange juice (2€). And Koek & Zopie offers a variety of organic coffees. Unfortunately, the rain came pooring down several times, turning the festival grounds …
