THE (Green) Sides + Crispy Harissa Tofu

THE (Green) Sides topped with some Crispy Harissa Tofu – this was dinner a couple nights ago. As I scratched my head trying to decide what to make, I realized my fridge was packed with fresh goods that my dad had taught me to cook – sautéed garlicky kale, blanched sesame asparagus, roasted broccoli, and…

Tomato Cream Masala Curry

The winter weather doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. It’s FREEZING out, and I can’t help but hope all have a warm place to tuck away. For me, it’s with my pups nestled around the fire. This day, I happened to have a hearty bowl of Tomato Cream Masala Curry in hand. I…

Salad Rolls + Creamy Peanut Sauce

I may be channeling Spring with these Salad Rolls, but I’m definitely eating them like it’s the dead of winter.I could polish off this platter – yum. These Vietnamese inspired salad rolls are packing many of my favourites…cucumber, red leafy lettuce, purple cabbage, carrot, green onions, jalapeño – AND vermicelli rice noodles tossed in a…

WildBlueberry Oatmeal Bake Crumble

This one has got me HOOKED – no relation to the movie. WildBlueberry Oatmeal Bake Crumble. What a mouthful! BUT if I’m being honest, I could not stop filling my face with this oatmeal bake. It’s become a regular. Once I captured a decent pic (featured – good enough, right?), I could NOT wait to…

(Warm) Chickpea KaleCaesar Pitas

(Warm) Chickpea KaleCaesar Pitas – I have been craving one of these ALL week. SO good. They may look super simple (as they are to make), but they’re BIG on that delicious creamy caesar flavour. It actually freaked out my mom a little – she totally thought she was eating my dad’s famous caesar dressing,…

BranPacked Muffins

Just look at that muffin top! I can definitely work with that top-to-bottom ratio. Bran Muffins hold a dear place in my heart. They were my ‘budget food’ when at uni – or at least that was my excuse. I literally ate one EVERYDAY at school. My mornings wouldn’t be complete without an almond milk…

the Seitan Roast

This, for me, was a VERY interesting culinary experience – Seitan Roast w/ a MushroomPeppercorn Gravy. I know many plant based foodies are very familiar with seitan. Moi…not so much. This was my first, and I couldn’t believe how similar the results were to something you’d find in a deli – we’re talkin’ well cured…

the classy Seitan Rueben

Oh, hello you. I’ve been calling this one the classy Seitan Rueben. Ever since I can remember, mustard was my #1 condiment choice (really, is there any other?). When it came to building this rueben from scratch, I knew I needed a Creamy GrainyMustard to make up for any lack of melty cheese. I also…

WarmKale Mexi Salad w/ Crispy Chickpeas

Great weekend!…SO much food. It was super cold out, so it didn’t take much for me to indulge. Thank goodness it’s Monday, and I’ll be back to weekday eats for a bit. I thought this mexi inspired WarmKale Salad was a good start! Plenty of fresh tender kale, crispy seasoned chickpeas, organic black beans, bbq…

Nacho Cheese

I bought a jar of @truly.turmeric Wildcrafted Whole Root Turmeric Paste and knew I had to use it in one of my upcoming recipes. Beautiful product. That recipe…this velvety Nacho Cheese. I LOVE turmeric, especially when it comes in a ready to use paste. What I didn’t know when I decided to add it, how well…
