hempsaladdressingvegannutfree-0718

A blog reader recently challenged me to create a nut-free, creamy salad dressing. You know I love a good challenge and I’m always happy when you give me recipe ideas and let me know what you are struggling with. It’s not always easy cranking out an endless supple of recipes, so I always appreciate any […]

The Big Salad

If I owned a restaurant one of my main priorities would be to ban wimpy salads from the menu. It would be a Big Salad Only Zone enforced with salads the size of my head! *insert evil cackle* Salads that dreams are made of. We’ve all been presented with that sad restaurant salad garnished a […]

Ultimate 4-Layer Vegan Sandwich

“You’re crazy.” Those were the encouraging words that came out of Eric’s mouth when I told him I was hoping to post 20 times this month for Vegan Mofo. [Here is my first introductory post + recipe in case you missed it.] “Twenty TIMES?” “Yeah………………………………….so?” He is right, it is crazy, but I’ve always liked […]

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. […]

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 […]

Detox Tabbouleh

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 […]

Thai-Inspired Hydrating Cucumber Salad with Roasted Spiced Chickpeas

Thaicucumbersaladwithroastedchickpeas-5047

Well, I’m back from a couple whirlwind weekends of travel to the West coast. My mom, sister, and I had a fantastic time in San Francisco soaking up each other’s company and plenty of glorious California sunshine. My skin has gone from ghostly white to slightly not ghostly white with a hint of funky sandal […]

Warm Spring Salad

Behold, non-wimpy asparagus! Normally I don’t consider asparagus to be one of the most exciting vegetables, but it always surprises me every time I make it. I enjoy it way more than I think I do. A simple, light sauté leaves it tender, but still crisp and fresh. I find it turns out best when […]

Golden Beet Salad with Shallots, Parsley, and Orange Miso Dressing

The first signs of spring are starting to show this week – buds on tree branches, Canadian geese migrating home, squirrels bouncing about, and birds chirping delightfully among the tree tops. It really is a beautiful thing to witness. One stroll through the park and it’s clear that this renewal we feel during spring is […]

Sunshine Spread

This dip was made in a desperate attempt to entice the sun from behind the thick, dark clouds. We’ve had a gloomy, grey winter and I’m getting a bit desperate for some sunshine. No, make that a lot desperate. It didn’t help that I saw this on the TV the other day either. Instead of […]
