Vegan Food in Prague

In the autumn I heard that I could have a change to go to study in Prague for a month, and here I am now. There are 4 other Finnish exchange students that study clothing or interior textiles too. We go to same classes and we’re also living together. Our school is in center of Prague.

Yesterday we went to eat at Radost FX Cafe, which has lacto-ovo menu with several vegan options. Vegan options are marked with eggplant symbol, so you don’t even have to ask if the food has any animal products in it. I had Tofu/Cashew stir fry, which was great, but bit too salty to my taste. The vegetables weren’t too soft, and there was generous amount of cashews. The prices were rather high, about 8€, which would be normal or cheap in Finland. I think we’re going there again in the near future.

Plutonium Cake

Nuclear plant exploded in Japan, so we made a plutonium cake. We used 2 tbsp agar agar flakes in the green layer, but it wasn’t enough, so the amount is increased in the recipe.

Plutonium Cake

200g Digestive or other biscuits
85g margarine

1 can soy whipping cream (SoyaToo!)
5 dl vanilla flavoured soy yogurt
3 tsp vanilla sugar
4 canned peach halves
green food colour or yellow and blue food colour
juice of 1 lemon
1,5 dl liquid from the peach can
3-4 tbsp agar agar flakes

3 dl orange juice
2 tsp agar agar flakes

Put the Digestives in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. Melt the margarine and combine with Digestive crumbs. Cover the bottom of a springform pan with parchment paper and spread the Digestive-margarine-mixture on it. Refrigerate about half an hour.

Mix lemon juice, peach can liquid and agar agar in a pot and boil 10-15 minutes. Whip the cream, puree the peach halves and combine with yogurt and vanilla sugar. Dye green. Allow the agar agar mixture to cool for couple or minutes and add to the green mixture. Pour on the digestive crust and refrigerate for few hours.

Mix orange juice and agar agar in a pot and boil 10-15 minutes. Pour on top of the cake and refrigerate couple of hours.
