I have to admit, there's no queso in this Avocado and Squash Quesadilla, not even a vegan queso. Not one speck of a nut-based cheese. Another confession: I was originally planning a cashew cheese q...

It's no #AprilFools  joke, it's really simple and easy to make. Not to mention delicious too! Asian Greens with Squash, Tofu, and Enoki Mushrooms.
Living in San Francisco, I feel lucky for having many vegan options when dining out. One of these options is my favorite soup called “Braised Pea Leaves” with pumpkin, pressed tofu, and salted chili broth served at a restaurant called Mission Chinese. Mission Chinese is a quaint restaurant in the Mission district. Some people frown upon this place, calling it …

‪#‎ThrowbackThursday‬ Recipe and a great dish for this ‪#‎Easter‬ Sunday, Vegan Pastel http://www.astigvegan.com/how-to-make-vegan-pastel/
Pastel is a creamy Filipino dish made of vegetables, milk, and chicken. It’s pronounced “Pahs-tell” with the emphasis on the second syllable “tel”. In Spanish, it means “cake”. You’ll find Pastel usually served at special gatherings and parties most likely because people find it intricate to make. The vegan version though cuts down the labor …

Ready for Spring! Top 5 all Natural, Green, and Vegan Skincare Products that I love.
When I was transitioning to a vegan lifestyle, skincare products came last on my list to veganize. I started with food then wardrobe and eventually makeup and skincare. I thought I was doing a good job at it until I recently found out that some cruelty-free skincare products could also be harmful to my health. I started learning about all the …

Someone had asked me, "How come you don't have a list of recipes on your blog so people could easily find them?". Great question! Well now, I've made two new changes on the blog so it's more user friendly for you. Here's my announcement:
I’ve made two important changes on my blog. One, I updated the page, “Astig Vegan Recipes”  which now features a menu list of my recipes.  The recipes are neatly organized by courses: Appetizers, Entrees, Breads, Snacks, and Dessert. I’ll keep adding to this list as I feature new recipes. With the recipe list, you don’t have to feel lost searching for …

Story
Tagline
Proving Filipino food could be vegan, healthy, & delicious without losing its soul. Astig = unique, gutsy. Vegan = cruelty free lifestyle.
Introduction

My name is Richgail Enriquez also known as “RG”. I’m a cook and a purveyor of recipes of both traditionally vegan and veganized Filipino dishes.

All of my recipes could be found on this site, astigvegan.com

I grew up in Cavite, Philippines until I was 15 years old. As a kid, I would help my mom in the kitchen prepare and cook Filipino dishes for the family. Years later, My family and I moved to San Francisco Bay Area.

My journey to veganism started more than six years ago. I started for health reasons but eventually led to ethical and environmental reasons as well. Luckily, my family and friends fully supported my decision.

Although I totally avoided animal products, I did not want to give up on Filipino Cuisine. Undeterred, I pursued to delve deeper in learning Filipino food as well as sharing my discoveries along the way.

One of these amazing discoveries was that it is possible to achieve delicious, healthy, and vegan Filipino food without losing its soul.

My passion for vegan Filipino cooking and sharing my recipes led me to blogging and eventually a cooking show on YouTube, “Astig Vegan Cooking” on youtube.com/RCEstudios
