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…

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…

Nacho Cheeze

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…
