Sun-dried Tomato, Mushroom, and Spinach Tofu Quiche

tofuquiche-8641

As someone who works from home, I often need a nudge to be pulled away from my work; there aren’t as many opportunities for social connections (at least, in person) and that’s something I’ve missed since working for myself. I’m also a self-professed workaholic, always with fear in the back of my mind that if […]

Irresistible Chewy Trail Mix Cookies (Vegan + Gluten-free)

vegantrailmixcookies-8631

Welcome to my dream cookie. Ram packed with healthy ingredients, chewy, crispy around the edges, thick and hearty, with dark chocolate sprinkled throughout. Not one who is content with a mediocre cookie, I tested these 4 times before they were deemed “in the vault”. That’s a lot of cookie eating! It’s a tough job I […]

My Favourite Lunch of the Moment: Easy Flaked Almond “Tuna” Salad

almondtunabites-8486

This summer marks my fourth year since I started experimenting with vegan recipe development. In what feels like the blink of an eye, I’ve shared over 400 recipes (and many more photos) with you on this blog. When I started out I didn’t know how to cook a simple potato or chop an onion. Seriously. […]

Seductive Raw Chocolate Walnut Fudge

rawchocolatefudgevegan-7500

Instead of working behind the camera like I usually am, earlier this week I was in front of my favourite photographer’s lens working in a beautiful kitchen with a handful of recipes from my book. We were shooting some kitchen scene and outdoor photos to sprinkle in my cookbook. Our landlord was gracious enough to […]

Cumin Lime Black Bean Quinoa Salad (quick + easy!)

easyquinoasaladveganblackbean-7359

Recipe creation is a funny thing. There are those moments when no amount of testing produces the result I’m looking for. I’ll put so much work into a recipe, only to have it fall short after hours (or days) of work. Vegan baked goods are notorious for being fussy at times, especially when trying to […]

Raw Almond Butter Cups

Rawalmondbuttercupsvegan-7350

I just realized that I’ve turned on my oven maybe once in the past week. What a glorious thing. What could be worthy of turning on the oven during a heat wave, you might ask? Two words: sweet potatoes! Yes, even in the summer, heat wave be damned, I need my sweet potato fix. This […]

Detox Tabbouleh

Detoxtabboulehgrainfree-7070

I know I’m a bit late to the party, but I’d like to talk about cauliflower rice today. For those of you who haven’t heard, cauliflower rice is simply grated/processed raw cauliflower that (somewhat) resembles traditional rice. It can be substituted for regular rice (or other grains) in some recipes whenever a lighter, grain-free option […]

Rad Rainbow Raw Pad Thai

Say this recipe title 10 times fast and…you WIN! Happiness and energy in a bowl. What more could you want on a Monday? If I could summarize in a single recipe what a healthy vegan diet means to me, this bowl might just be it. It’s fresh, crisp, vibrant and heavy on the veggies with […]

DIY Coffee Concentrate + Speedy Almond Milk Iced Coffee

almondicedcoffeeconcentrate-6388

In my mind, the arrival of summer necessitates iced coffee. Add homemade almond milk into the mix and it’s just about one of the best drinks to come out of my kitchen! And of course, cheaper than what the high-end coffee shops charge. I don’t drink much coffee year round (I’ve always been a tea […]

7 Portable Travel Snack Ideas + Vida Vegan Con Fun

20130525_134547

I somehow managed to do two things that scare the living daylights out of me – travel alone long-distance and engage in a very large social setting where I don’t know many people. For some, this is no big deal, but when you have bad anxiety the apprehension can feel crippling at times. I made […]
