A. Gulden's Recipes
As you may have noticed, I enjoy food immensely. I believe strongly that just because you choose not to eat meat does not mean that you cannot be a "foodie" and have a much wider and varied repertoire than just pasta or salad.
My journey started many years ago in Turkey (my home country) while I was running with my own restaurant. After a downward health spiral based on a meat-centric diet aligned with food we were serving, I started my journey into vegetarianism. Within a very short space of time I found my health vastly improved and learning just how dangerous our consumption of meat can be.
While I was still studying nutrition in Australia, my food and nutrition related articles have been published back in Turkey in an agricultural magazine called Agroskop.
This year, I finished my nutrition related studies. I am now certified in many areas such as Clinical Nutrition, Advanced Ayurveda, Vegetarian and Vegan Nutrition, Food and Environmental Allergies and am also a Master Therapist of Natural Therapies.
At the moment, I live in Sydney with my husband and an Australian silky terrier.

Corn Fritters are an excellent addition to any party buffet, and very simple to make. I remember making these delicious fritters at the time we had Berfu staying with us. It was an instant hit with her. At the time, I served them with Avocado Cream Topping, however, they are nice with Tartare sauce, too.… Continue reading Corn Fritters with Avocado Cream Topping The post Corn Fritters with Avocado Cream Topping appeared first on VegFusion.

The one with any kind of paste is the sticky one and that’s what you get from most Turkish döner kebab places. My mum’s version, on the… Continue reading Turkish Tabbouleh Salad or Anne Kısırı The post Turkish Tabbouleh Salad or Anne Kısırı appeared first on VegFusion.
