Marfigs' Munchies

Adventures in vegan eats and feats



WIAW and back in the driving seat

Welcome to What I Ate (for) Wednesday! Yesterday was a bit of a scramble since it was the last of a two day course that I presented on Advanced Word Editing, so there’s little to recommend my morning meals with regard to charm, but I did make up for it with sushi at least. Anyhow, onward ho!wiawmarfigslogo

Rooibos tea ice-cream float

I usually try be healthy in my food choices and recipes, but today I’m sharing something too divine to count calories over! Ice-cream floats were one of my favourite treats when I came to South Africa over the holidays and got to indulge in all the delicious and terribly sweet food. One of these magical concoctions was the delightful ice-cream float, usually atop something ridiculous like a green fizzy drink or so. I may have grown up in the meantime and gone off of soft drinks, but I still sometimes get a craving for the amazing mix of fizzy stuff with ice-cream on top, so here’s a vegan version that may just rock your socks off!rooibosfloatsplash

Crafty Carrots: Free Ebook + Chocolate Orange Brownies {vegan + gluten-free}

It’s finally here – my first ebook! This is 100% a labour of love and devotion to carrots, one of the main reasons I’m a delightful shade of yellow. :D 100% vegan, gluten-free, and only 2 out of the 25 recipes are oldies – the rest are totally new and exclusive to the ebook. Carrots can hide in plain sight, and this ebook manages to use this awesome ingredient in subtle and berserk ways, as is only fitting for such a versatile veggie.craftycarrotscover

WIAW + a day of breakfasts

Ahoy! Today’s munchies are all about recovery – I only got back home Tuesday night at 22h00+ after spending an entire day at the hospital waiting to be prodded, so I only managed 100ml of apple juice and 1/2 a cup of tea before spacing out at home. I spent the whole day fantasizing about food so yesterday was all about spoiling myself (in moderation, I don’t want a repeat of last time). The best way to treat oneself, to my mind, is to dedicate the day to breakfast foods, so here’s a blast of WIAW!papayasplash Continue reading



Vegan tahini pear ice-cream with berry swirl {no ice-cream maker required}

After my success with making vegan meringues the other day, I still had some leftover pre-bake meringue mix that was lying in the fridge. The texture becomes rather foamy and I was too lazy to re-whip it to bake, so I did the only logical thing: made ice-cream. No words, just heaving breathing. :p

WIAW and moving around

Today’s WIAW is actually about what I ate on Tuesday, because if you saw the fest I had yesterday your eyes would boggle, but also I like showing off my Tuesday munchies since it’s a weird half-work sort of vibe and then one gets a little bit of everything. I was helping out with Advanced Word Editing on Monday and Tuesday so it was action stations followed by some hardcore essay writing for my library science diploma, AKA a good excuse for “brain food”.wiawmarfigslogo

Upside down lemon meringues {vegan + gluten-free}


Ok, so I finally managed to perfect the recipe that’s taking the vegan baking world by storm: meringues made from bean brine. Insane? Yes. Fitting? Absolutely. I don’t deny that vegans are a bunch of crazies now and again, but they manage to turn the simplest ingredients into something magical, and this is a clear example of their skill in making a plan to veganize pretty much anything that needs doing. To celebrate my good fortune I decided to also go a bit topsy-turvy and create simple, sweet but fun upside down lemon meringues. Join me for the glee!veganmeringuesplash1
