Mneme, editor of German blog consume. be silent. die. has listed her favorite vegan foods and beverages and has encouraged her readers to do the same. I'm not a full vegan, but a vegetarian who has, besides meat, stopped buying eggs, milk and cheese for home-use - so I thought I might still be eligible to participate. The list you'll find after the jump is obviously incomplete (I do not only eat that!) and has not been sponsored in any way.Lemonade - These are fairly bad for my stomach, but I just love a fresh sizzle once in a while. Preferably, I buy them organic.
Tofu - It comes plain and seasoned, e.g. Almond-Sesame, and I put it anywhere: into salads, Wok dishes or noodle sauces and even on my sandwiches.
Soba Noodles - Soba means buckwheat in Japanese and Soba noodles are available in many different forms and shapes. I get mine from organic supermarkets or Asian grocery shops. For more info on Soba, try Wikipedia.
Sweet Potatoes - They are easy to cook or bake as fries and very delicious.
Brown Rice - Much more filling than its white cousin.
Pumpkin and Squash - Butternut squash and Hokkaido pumpkins are my favorites at the moment, although they aren't in season in Germany (pumpkin season here starts in mid-August).
Elder Syrup - Yum! I always buy it organic.
Sesame Brittle - I get packages of four at Alnatura.
Genmai Su - Genmai Su is essentially rice vinegar. You can use it to season your sushi rice (try vegetarian sushi, it tastes really nice!) or any stir-fried dish.
