Two thing inspire me about Penang Island which is just off the west coast of Malaysia, about a 4 hour car ride north of Kuala Lumpur on the main highway. They are sunsets and vegan food! Penang has an abundance of both. The sunsets seen from the north part of the island at a location called Batu Ferringhi are magical. Equally wonderful is the wide range of vegan food options and restaurants throughout the main city of Georgetown and around the rest of the island. Could this be a tropical paradise for vegans? It's close. The island is becoming quickly urbanized from economic growth so it doesn't quite have the peaceful happy tropical vibe some may want for a paradise, but the food is amazing and the sunsets do make each day wonderful. Needless to say, I hope I can make it back often.
The Leaf Healthy House Cafe (Penang)
How can you go wrong when the name of the restaurant has 'leaf' and 'healthy' in it? It's my favorite vegan cafe in the area and it has a very green vibe. The dumpling soup is wonderful and the vegan version of Bak Kut The which is an herbal soup with veggies is excellent. They have a large menu with many juices and the prices are low. It's just a short distance from the waterfront and a relaxing place to enjoy great food.
Janxden Greenlife Restaurant (Penang)
Janxden Greenlife Restaurant is a nice place to eat on a pretty street in the main city. The food is tasty, especially their Tom Yam soup. They have unique juices and friendly service. Their rice dishes are also large and wonderful. The interior is simple and clean.
It's wonderful to know people who know things - such as how to make almond brazil nut milk - fresh and homemade. All I can say is 'WOW'! It tastes much better than the store bought versions of dairy-free milk. In fact, I stopped buying the common brands on the shelf because the list of ingredients was somewhat concerning and the flavor was just not that appealing.
Well, when my sister stopped by and made a batch of almond brazil nut milk, it totally energized me. The flavor was balanced and delicious. Now I make and drink it frequently, especially when almonds go on sale. I recommend you try it, even if you don't consider yourself skilled in the kitchen. Simply soak the nuts over night, blend them with water, pour the mixture through cheese cloth and squeeze it as much as possible and that's it! Our recipe will be forthcoming but the photos below will guide you through the general process of making of my new favorite vegan beverage - no sweeteners added or needed. Cheers!
