Simple vegan meals: Traveling edition

Hallo from Vienna!
I’m about halfway through my trip now and am having the greatest time. I’ve found vegan eats around Amsterdam, Berlin, and Vienna, which I’ll post about when I’m home. As much as I love exploring what each city has to offer in terms of vegan restaurants, some days all I want to do is have a homecooked meal. I went to an outdoor market (Naschmarkt – completely awesome) today to pick up ingredients for dinner. I found the littlest eggplants ever and some mini chanterelles, which are much cheaper here than back home. Score.
With my produce in tow, I headed back to my lovely little hostel (getting completely lost along the way).
