Hello friends! Welcome to Ellie Likes Cooking. I’m so happy you stumbled upon my little creative space on the internet 🙂

What you can expect here: Lots of delicious plant-based vegan recipes! 
In particular:

  • Japanese and Asian-inspired recipes
  • veganized dishes from my childhood
  • healthier plant-based sweets 
  • 100% vegan and plant-based, sometimes gluten and oil-free

And a quick intro:

Hi! I’m Ellie, a 20-something-year-old still trying to find her way through life. I’m a passionate foodie and food photographer, and I love getting my hands dirty in the kitchen. (I do not, however, love washing the mountain of dishes I always end up with.)

I’m a strong believer that food can be your medicine but it can also be your poison. While I consume a 98% plant-based diet, I do not preach a plant-based diet to every human I interact with because I know that every individual’s health is different, and what works for me will not necessarily work for someone else. That being said, I do advocate for eating more plants and less meat, and in general just doing whatever small or large act that we can to better the health of ourselves, the environment, and the animals that inhabit this wonderful earth.

Apart from food, my passions also lie in Japan and Japanese culture. It is such a beautiful country rich with history, and I hope to live there one day. If you’re looking for vegan food in Japan, check out these posts! (Unfortunately, at the time of writing this there’s only one post so far, but it’s helpful if you’re planning a trip to Kyoto!)

If you like my photos/recipes or want to work with me, please fill out a contact form and I’ll get back to you within the next few days.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy your time here and come back for more later 🙂
