vegan paprikash with dumplings

I’ve always loved this meal. Being a little girl who devoured it on the ski slopes, it never occurred to me that a vegan version could be made. I found out about this many years later while flipping through the book full of plant-based recipes – Slovegán. So this one is inspired by it. However,...

I would like to write that this sauce is indistinguishable from Italian Bolognese, but the truth is that smoked tofu has a strong taste.

the words i have never said

We are sitting in the car together. The evening is warm, your hand is reaching for mine and something in the air is tearing me apart. How when your skin finds mine, I forget to inhale. How you are tender and energetic, both at once, how I wonder whether your lips feels the same. How...
