Maple Baked Lentils with Sweet Potato – Healthy Comfort Food

maple baked lentils -9961

Oh, January. Your detoxes, cleanses, juice fasts, diet commercials, and cellulite cream jeans are starting to get on my nerves. Just so you know I’m tuning you out, so don’t bother trying to lure me in with 6 easy payments or strict diet plans. It’s just not my thing. My approach to January – or […]


Glazed Lentil Walnut Apple Loaf, Revisited

Lentil Loaf-4-2

Out of all my favourite vegan recipes, this lentil loaf ranks in my top 10. This is a big deal, considering I’m in love with no less than 3,000 foods at any given moment. The original loaf recipe hails from talented chef and author, Terry Walters. I’ve enjoyed playing around with the recipe countless ways […]


Speedy Three-Bean Salad

3 bean salad-4201

One of my favourite things to do is recreate a dish or meal that I’ve enjoyed at a restaurant or purchased in a store.   I’ve recreated the Detox salad and Layered Salad with Orange Ginger Dressing from Whole Foods, the Adzuki Bean & Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad and Pink Flamingo Smoothie from Fresh restaurant, Endurance […]


Falafel with a Twist


  An unexpected passion that resulted from this blog is, without a doubt, my growing love for food photography. I could talk your ear off about lighting, camera equipment, props, my weaknesses and frustrations, difficult vs. easy subjects, and the best times of day to shoot. I find myself saying things like, “Look how beautiful […]


Spicy BBQ Chickpea Burgers & Lightened-Up Crispy Baked Fries


Are you scratching your head wondering how it’s July like I am? I say this every single year and I never seem to figure it out. If you do, let me know. My Canada Day long weekend was a nice mix of work and play! I spent much of the weekend recipe testing, as I […]


Spicy Potato ‘n Black Bean Burritos


My potato kick is still going strong. It started innocently enough with my Chocolate Chip Cookie Pota’Dough Dip and since then I’ve fallen in love with potatoes all over again. They are so filling and comforting! I don’t know why I ever fell off the potato bandwagon. If I had a dime for everytime I […]


Adzuki Bean & Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad with a Twist


Last week, I had a meeting downtown and it was the perfect excuse to grab a bite to eat at Fresh restaurant. Whenever I’m in the city I try to pop in for a meal, even if that means eating an early dinner at 4pm and hitting rush hour traffic on the way home. It’s […]


20-Minute Vegan Dinner for Two


My favourite way to cook is to just grab things from the fridge and improvise. If you asked me to do this 5 years ago, I would’ve looked at you like you had two heads. It gets easier with practice though. Something that used to cause me so much stress is now one of my […]


22 Ways To Get Your Vegan Snack Attack On


It must be snacking season because I’ve had a lot of emails lately asking for some healthy vegan snack ideas and I thought it was a great idea for a post. Many of the recipes below are also some of the most popular snack recipes of 2011, so I will also add this post to […]


Whole Foods Inspired Layered Salad with Orange Ginger Dressing


Remember this fun layered salad I had from Whole Foods while in Arizona?   I believe I said, “Mark my words, this will be the first thing I make when I’m on Canadian soil.” Ok, so it wasn’t technically the first thing I made (not even close if you could see all the recipe testing […]
