Hello! Welcome to Ellie Likes Cooking. I’m so happy you stumbled upon my little creative space on the internet ๐Ÿ™‚

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

  • Japanese and Asian-inspired dishes
  • veganized dishes from my childhood
  • healthier sweet treats
  • sometimes gluten-free
  • boyfriend-approved!

My goal here: While I hope you’ll find some new go-to dishes, I also hope to inspire you to be more creative in the kitchen and play around with your own recipes! Everyone’s taste buds are different, so you don’t need to follow each recipe to a tee (although when baking is involved, I do recommend you at least follow the recipe the first time around before playing with it). With cooking, you can taste and adjust ingredients as you go! Trust your taste buds, they know what you like. My hope is for you to be able to use my recipes as inspiration, maybe discover a new dish or combo and then adjust it to your preferences!

Get to know me:

I’m a passionate self-taught food photographer and recipe creator. I’ve been making messes in the kitchen since I was 12, and 10 years later, after finishing university, I decided to trade in my Nutrition degree for a camera and a kitchen. I love making simple, feel-good recipes that don’t compromise on taste or nutrition.

Apart from food and photography, 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 (and veganize all my favorite Japanese recipes!). If you’re looking for vegan food in Japan, check out these posts! (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!)

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you find a recipe you like and come back for more ๐Ÿ™‚
