Crispy Broccoli Fritters

The week is FLYING by!…that much closer to Sunday, but who’s counting?! Broccoli is one of those veggies I like to fish out of the wok in stir-fries (would totally get in trouble for it), not to mention soups & bakes too. It just suits so many flavours, and I’m a total sucker for its…

Crunchy Tofu Bites

This week, I’ll be posting a few recipes that are easy + delicious, and of course, perfect for sharing. Just in time for the BIG (football) game this Sunday! Starting the eats off with these Crunchy Tofu Bites – HOT & Garlicky MapleMustard. Those Frank’s bites are just GLOWING. AND the Garlicky MapleMustard ones…addictive –…

HerbCream Stuffed Potatoes & Charred Jalapeño Guac

GREEN is the word this week! HerbCream Stuffed Potatoes topped with Charred Jalapeño Guac – just look at that jalapeño hanging off the potato. This was the result after I eagerly foraged my fridge (mad craving + some head scratching), discovered a whole pile of fresh herbs – including a few leftover jalapeños from making…

Creamy Jalapeño Macaroni

Getting up close & personal with THIS bowl of Creamy Jalapeño Macaroni! Yep, I LOVE my spicy peppers. These noodles may be sporting a healthy dose of green, but don’t be fooled – the ‘heat’ factor is WAY low. This macaroni is full of that dreamy jalapeño flavour with little to no heat once cooked….

Vegetable Bake + WhiteGravy

GOOD Day! Starting things off with a short story. I received a text first thing this morning from a friend stating that it was apparently “the most depressing day of the calendar year”. Right!…yikes. No, thank you. Seeing as I seem to have this inherent desire to challenge the odds, I replied “well, then let’s…

Triple Chocolate Coconut Cookies

These lil’ gems are surprisingly easy to make, pretty high up there on the healthy-ish scale (as a cookie can be), AND they were actually created as a means to use up some of that coconut cream liquid leftover after making the SwissChard Rolls – if you haven’t already…check out my previous post. Yum. I…

SwissChard Rolls

Fully loaded SwissChard Rolls, yes please! These swiss chard rolls are bursting with brown basmati rice – seasoned by some of my favourites…sweet onion, cumin, turmeric, and sea salt. They were baked with lemon slices and topped off with a cream sauce. The swiss chard not only adds an awesome earthy flavour, but it also…

BlackBerry Salad Dressing *Oil Free

Serving up a WHOLE lot of colour for you today! As soon as January hit, I’ve been craving citrusy foods. I got my hands on some lovely grapefruits + blackberries, and whipped together this super colourful, tasty, and simple salad one night last week. The blackberries actually flew out of my fridge just as I opened…

Amaranth Porridge

GOOD Morning!…or at least it was when I sat down to THIS bowl of Amaranth Porridge. Had some of those Poached Cranberries kicking around the next day, so I decided they would be a delicious addition to my morning porridge. If you haven’t tried amaranth yet, GO buy some! It’s full of antioxidants, minerals, &…

Creamy WiltedSpinach w/ Poached Cranberries

As soon as I saw a whole stockpile of fresh organic cranberries hit the shelves at my local grocers back in December, the first recipe that came to mind was this comforting combo. Many of you have likely figured out that I LOVE variety – texture, flavour, colour…you name it. I find meals, such as…

Loaded Avocado B(less)LT

I had to do a post on one of my ALL time favourites, the Avocado B(less)LT. Come Christmas Day, the two things my family looks forward to most…breakfast & sandwiches – not to be confused with breakfast sandwiches. Since we host Christmas Dinner on the eve of the BIG day, the day after means leftovers…

NutNog Biscotti (Cantuccini)

I looove my mornings, especially when it includes a nice warm freshly brewed beverage. In anticipation of the then, upcoming holidays, I stocked up on plant based foods. One item I bought a few times over was almond nog. Some were better than others, and I was left with an abundance of nog. One of…
