When I am at home in Graz, my mum and I always try out some new recipes. Yesterday we decided to make a »leek quiche« and »Blackberry-Panna Cotta». We took recipes out of the books »Veganes fürs Fest« and »Käse Veganese«, both written by Heike Kügler-Anger.
They both turned out great! Here are the recipes we used (a bit different to the original):
