Hello friends! 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!

Get to know me:

Hello! I’m Ellie, a 20-something-year-old on a mission to cook, bake, and eat all the plants, while inspiring others to do the same. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 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™‚
