Easy Overnight Buckwheat Parfait


All of these warm spring mornings have brought back my cravings for no-cook parfaits. Parfaits are one of my favourite summer foods because they are virtually effortless, don’t require a stove, and are different every time I make them. Lately, I’ve been enjoying this breakfast quite a bit and it only dawned on me recently […]


Layered Raw Taco Salad for Two


If you ever find yourself in a salad rut, this raw taco salad is a great way to break out of it. Hearty and flavourful, every bite is a fiesta in your mouth. It’s a bit (ok, a lot) different from the taco salad of my youth, but certainly no less tasty! My inspiration comes […]


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 […]


Spring Salad with Strawberry Lemon Basil Dressing


  As May approaches and spring is in full force, I’m finding excuses to walk everywhere, lugging my camera in tote. I have a blister and sore right shoulder to prove it! Tulips, daffodils, and cherry blossoms are in bloom, tiny green leaves sprout, I’m sneezing like crazy, and our car is a lovely shade […]


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 […]


Lightened Up Spring Stuffing


A couple weeks ago, a reader named Cara emailed me with a recipe request for a vegan spring stuffing. Her complaint with traditional stuffing was that it felt too much like autumn instead of spring; it tends to be heavy, instead of light and fresh. Cara is onto something here, don’t you think? I love […]


Easy St. Patrick’s Day Appetizer: Sneaky Shamrock Spinach Crackers & Green Dip


This has to be one of the easiest green recipes I’ve ever made, aside from the Green Monster. I’ve wanted to make green crackers for a while now, using spinach for the lovely green colour and burst of nutrition. Attempt #1 was adapting the gluten-free crackers with spinach. The dough was super sticky and it […]


Easy Lemon Dill Tofu


I really can’t believe that I went all these years without tofu in my life. I was under the impression that tofu gave me horrible stomach pains whenever I ate it, so that was the main reason for avoiding it. I recently discovered it doesn’t seem to bother my stomach like I thought. When you […]


Cardamom Almond Pear Crisp for Two


Happy Friday! Just a quick note about the pancake recipe I posted yesterday. I tried the pancakes this morning using a couple different methods after a reader mentioned the pancakes stuck to the pan after making a couple small substitutions. I went back into the kitchen to see if I could figure out why the […]


Citrus Beet Salad with Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing


I’m a recent beet fan, however I can’t say I’ve made much time to cook with them. They just always seem like such a pain in the butt to prepare and cook, don’t they? The peeling, the red stains, the roots, the dirt. Bah. I used to pass them by for easier-to-prepare vegetables, even though […]
