Butternut Squash Curry with Mixed Grains (vegan)

It’s worth it though, I mean butternut squash is delicious, so I can take a bit of hard work to get there. It’s really the perfect autumn vegetable, isn’t it? Cozy, healthy and delicious! There are a million things … Continue reading Butternut Squash Curry with Mixed Grains (vegan)

Hummus never disappoints me.

With a simple … Continue reading Sun Dried Tomato & Basil Hummus (Vegan)

Crispy Coconut Tofu Lettuce Wraps (Vegan)

Did anyone else just eat an insane amount of carbs during quaratine? I won’t lie, I spent a lot of the time baking bagels, cinnamon buns, bread (I was already on that bandwagon before it was quarantine cool), lots of pasta, potatoes…if it was carby, I was into it. And while I still believe that carbs make life worth living and are essential to any … Continue reading Crispy Coconut Tofu Lettuce Wraps (Vegan)

Ratatouille (vegan)

Will it skillet? Oh heck yes it will. I love how easy the cast iron pan goes from stove to oven, making this veggie packed, vegan friendly dish super easy and literally one pot. You know it’s an easy recipe because let’s be honest – you know I’m all about easy! I loved the movie Ratatouille, it’s a super cute movie if you haven’t seen … Continue reading Ratatouille (vegan)

Vegan Cottage Pie

I spent last week in snowy Kelowna with my family, and it was perfect! As per norm, it was full of snowboarding, games, wine, martinis and delicious, comforting vegan food (and a few bites of cheese 😉 ). One of my favourite parts about our Kelowna trips is spending time in the kitchen with Gord and making awesome vegan food with him (see, you got … Continue reading Vegan Cottage Pie

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)

Olive Tapenade (Vegan)

In a brave effort to host eight people for Sunday dinner at my apartment I tried to keep things as easy and make ahead as possible. With the oven full (and not to mention my apartment is 3 million degrees…with the fan on), there was no room or desire to make a hot appetizer. I’m so glad you’re here because the tapenade is good. I … Continue reading Olive Tapenade (Vegan)

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)
