Charred CornChowder

Alright, y’all. Before I get started on today’s post, I want to send out MUCHO love to ya. Not sure if I say it enough, but I’m SO grateful for you all and SO appreciate hearing about your success with my recipes. They’ve brought me health, happiness (who doesn’t love a GOOD kitchen party?!), and…

Roasted Bruschetta Orzo

July has welcomed regular thunder showers! Therefore opportune moments to fit in some BBQ time are well treasured. This humidity though – apparently I’m ‘glowing’ and rocking some serious beach hair…in Northern B.C.!? Ok, so I love bruschetta – especially the ‘garlicky slurry’ my dad adds to his recipe. Watch out though, major dragon breath…

Thai RiceBowl

Welcoming SUMMER like…! The temps have dropped for June (as usual), and I’ve been craving foods to warm my core. This Thai RiceBowl is one that I chowed down on just the other day – brown basmati rice topped with tomatoes poached in a creamy/slightly spicy peanut sauce (packing cilantro + jalapeño) AND a side…

Taco Salad

One look at this Taco Salad and my mouth is watering – yum! Can you see the crisp fresh romaine lettuce peeking through all of those toppings? Yep, it was tossed in that JalapeñoCilantro Salad Dressing I posted the other day. That’s what takes this Taco Salad to the next level – tastefully dressed greens….

JalapeñoCilantro Salad Dressing

If you haven’t tried this salad dressing yet, you’ll want to jump on it! *Now I can’t get that song out of my head. You’re missing out on a VERY good thing – I literally drench my greens in this stuff. In the coming days I’ll also be sharing a favourite summer salad that includes this…

Daikon Salad w/ Miso Dressing

THIS Daikon Salad is quickly making its way up our ‘favourites’ list. Perfect for summer (first tan lines of the year are here! but only on the back of my neck:(, this refreshing simple salad is one that has been on repeat in my house for the past few weeks. Simply dressed with a mouthwatering…

Tasty TVP Tacos w/ Smashed Avocado

Weekend Edition!…I’ve been M.I.A. this week, and have definitely NOT been setting a good example. Spring is getting the best of me (supes busy), and I’ve had to resort to copious amounts of flaxseed crackers, peanut butter, and watermelon to get me through the week. BUT if I’m being honest, I would have ate all…

Lemony BasmatiRice + Cumin Soup

Just one of those days soup is tasting REAL good!…brrr. This soup was inspired by one that my sister use to make except with potatoes. Seeing as we haven’t made it in years, and I don’t actually have a recipe for it – I forged this Lemony BasmatiRice + Cumin Soup from my memory bank$$$….

Roasted Edamame Salad

It’s no secret I LOVE my greens, especially topped with some coconut bacon – yum. BIG flavourful salads are my jam, and I could easily eat them for daysss. This Roasted Edamame Salad is the spitting image of Spring. Full of colour, refreshing yet filling, and you guessed it…simple. I don’t know about you all,…

Cauliflower FriedRice w/ TVP

Need protein?…then this bowl has got you covered! *That line takes me back to my lululemon days. Cauliflower FriedRice with TVP (textured vegetable protein), edamame, and broccoli rabe. This easy + quick high protein meal is seasoned with some of my faves…garlic, ginger, hoisin, *gf tamari, and jalapeños – just to name a few. Perfect…

Spring Minestrone Soup

Hot bowls of this Spring Minestrone Soup have been hitting the kitchen counter ALL lunchtime long this week. With its fresh flavours, mixed veg, and pop in your mouth adorable mini grape tomatoes, this soup has been a BIG hit. Topped off with a couple Crispy Tempeh MeatBalls + some walnut parm, and you’re left…

Grilled Veg Sammie

Grilled (fully loaded) Veg Sammie on homemade ciabatta. The only complaint I received about this sandwich…it’s a little too BIG. Ok, I can live with that. Packed with caramelized onions, roasted eggplant, red pepper, portobello mushrooms, zucchini, and house feta – there’s definitely no lack of flavour here! That ciabatta grilled up perfectly soaking up…
