Our Vegetarian Ingredient List

Here we listed anything we found helpful on food, nutrition and fitness.

🍴What you always need

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Our staple oil for low-medium heat cooking and salads.

Whole Wheat Flour

Higher in fiber than ‘regular’ flour and just as delicious for many baked goods.

Vegetable Broth

Seitenbacher is a reputable German company with annoying radio ads.

Sea Salt & Black Pepper

Two must-haves.

Iodized Salt

We’re fans of iodized salt over sea salt for cooking, because it contains the essential micronutrient iodine – and oftentimes it’s cheaper.

Organic Cane Sugar

Wonderful to sprinkle over porridge.

Balsamic Vinegar

A staple in the kitchen. Essential for any quick salad.


Rolled Oats

A staple food in anyone’s kitchen we hope.


High in protein, gluten-free and tasty. Quinoa is a staple ingredient in a well-stocked veggie household.

Brown Rice

Another staple food for the vegetarian kitchen.

Black Beans, Caned

High in proteins, fiber and tasty. Important ingredient for us vegetarians.

Whole Kernel Sweet Corn

Delicious for corn fritters, in salads and stews!

Whole Grain Pasta

The switch to whole grain pasta is incredibly easy. The children won’t even notice.

Chickpeas, Canned

Chickpeas are essential for our recipes and vegetarians in general.

Lentils, Canned

For when cooking lentils takes a bit too much time. Nice for salads!

White Kidney Beans

Beans are so important for us vegetarians for their protein and fiber. Also delicious in soups and stews.

Kidney Beans

Tasty in salads and soups.

Tomato Puree

Important to always have a few cans at home. You never know when you need the next tomato sauce!


Cooks within minutes, delicious in salads and as a side. Very handy food to have a t home!

Red Lentils

Quick to cook, really high in protein and very tasty. One of the most important ingredients in the vegetarian kitchen.

Brown Lentils

Should be a staple in the veggie household. Better for salads than red lentils.

Low Fat Coconut Milk

Low fat coconut milk allows you to cook up many Asian foods without breaking the calorie bank (I’m talking 1000+ calories per meal).

Petite Diced Canned Tomatoes

Delicious in many soups and stews.

Basmati Rice

Quick to make and tasty. Probably Hauke’s favorite rice type.

Chickpea Flour

Very good high protein flour for dishes like socca or ‘cheela’. Wouldn’t want to miss it in my kitchen.

Flour Tortillas

Important for that lazy quesadilla on weekday evenings!


For when you’re tired of porridge. Also excellent as a rice replacement in salads.

Stir Fry Rice Noodles

Now I really want to make that stir fry in peanut butter sauce!

Green Beans

Good for quick salads and in casseroles.

Pineapple Chunks, Canned

These canned pineapples don’t have any sugar added. Somthing you don’t find everywhere.

Sushi Rice

Not only good for sushi, but also for rice pudding.

Risotto Rice

Can also be used for sushi and rice pudding.

Panko Bread Crumbs

Adds the crispiness on many casseroles. helpful for patties too!

Whole Grain Spaghetti

Contains more fiber than the regular spaghetti.

Egg Noodles

Tasty in soups, as side dishes, and in casseroles. They pair well with creamy sauces and hearty stews.

Beluga Lentils

Beluga lentils are great for salads due to their slightly sturdier consistency.


Often ignored, though it can create extremely tasty dishes.

Black Olives, Pitted

Wonderful addition in many Mediterranean dishes.

Crunchy Taco Shells

Wonderful for the easy weeknight dinner. Cuck in whatever you like!


Organic Maple Syrup

Nothing beats delicious maple syrup on pancakes.

Natural Soy Sauce

Can’t go wrong with the classic Kikkoman!

Pure, Raw & Unfiltered Honey

Tasty high quality honey.

Ground Cinnamon

A staple in any spice rack. No porridge without cinnamon for me.

Ground Cumin Seed

A must-have for various Mexican dishes

Smoked Paprika

Smokey flavour, definitely not for everyone.

Brown Sugar

Tasty alternative to regular white sugar.

Black Pepper

Plain and simple ground black pepper.

Baking Vanilla

Vanilla makes any baking dish tastier.

Chili Flakes

Chili flakes go on almost any of Hauke’s dishes 😉

Baking Soda

This powder is a real ‘Swiss army knife’. It cannot only be used for baking but also for cleaning.

Chia Seeds

Power food with a significant amount of omega-3. This should be a staple in any vegetarian’s household.


Probably Hauke’s favorite nut.

Nutritional Yeast

Adds flavour, protein and is vegan. I wouldn’t skip on nutritional yeast!

Sesame Seeds

Wonderful add-on, especially for Asian dishes.

Peanuts, Dry Roasted & Unsalted

Just make sure to not eat them all at once.

Sun-Dried Tomatoes in Oil

Enhances so many dishes. Sun-dried tomatoes just bring the flavour.

Oregano, Dried

Oregano is one of the must-haves in any kitchen.


We don’t understand how some people grow such a distaste towards raisins. They’re delicious!

Pumpkin Seeds

Excellent for any breakfast muesli or as soup toppings. Always better roasted!
