Eggplant Banh Mi (Vegan)

TODAY ON WILL IT SKILLET? – EGGPLANT BANH MI’S. Yes, I used my cast iron to cook the eggplant for these Banh Mi’s…because why wouldn’t I? The cast iron gives it a nice, crisp, brown edge but you can obviously use whatever pan you have. Orrr even better if you have a grill it would be amazing grilled! Now I’m not totally confident what kind … Continue reading Eggplant Banh Mi (Vegan)

Pea & Chorizo Pasta

While I love a hearty, thick and spicy tomato based sauce or bolognese that’s been simmering for hours, you can’t always swing that kind of time during the week, and sometimes you just want something a bit lighter and quicker. In swoops this clear sauce consisting of olive oil, white wine, pasta water and lemon juice with all your delicious add-ins. I actually really love … Continue reading Pea & Chorizo Pasta

Crustless Veggie Quiche

In general, I’m not really into eggs with the “egg”ception of a fried egg once in a while on holiday’s, or a benny…but sometimes I do just get a really harsh craving for egg. I do like those little mini quiche – you know the ones in pie crust? I think maybe I just love pie crust. After a long weekend away, I didn’t want … Continue reading Crustless Veggie Quiche

Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Quinoa Bake

I’m the proud owner of a Costco size bag of quinoa. I wouldn’t say I “needed” it, but it was right there in front of me and everything at Costco is so tempting (i.e. the massive blocks of cheese). Not to mention a little box of quinoa isn’t always cheap, so it was a pretty good deal…and quinoa is dellisssh. This bake is pretty great … Continue reading Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Quinoa Bake

Chorizo Chili (Vegan)

This is actually the chili that my mom taught me to make. She grabbed the original recipe from Trader Joe’s, which is one of my favourite stores. I think the original way to make it was just beans, tomatoes and the chorizo, but we add a few extra ingredients. So I’m not sure if I should give the credit to TJ’s or my mom? Thanks … Continue reading Chorizo Chili (Vegan)

Tahini Harvest Bowl

Nope, I didn’t hurt myself. I was Dwight Schrute-ing it last night. If you don’t know what that means you should go look up who Dwight Schrute is, I bascially looked like this last night: Meaning that like Dwight, I wouldn’t be allowed in any fancy stores for safety concerns. “I’m a beet farmer, you idiot!” I’m actually not a beet farmer though. But I do like beets, and I … Continue reading Tahini Harvest Bowl
