Tempeh-Black Bean Burgers

Over the past month, I have decided to venture into the world of entirely plant-based, vegetarian eating. I was surprised by the conscious effort required to avoid meat in the beginning, though this got much easier as time went on. I’m now at a point where I’ve not only become accustomed to altering my food…

Fresh Corn & Blueberry Summer Salad

This salad is a must-make, especially towards the end of summer when fresh corn is in season and oh-so-delicious! Highlighting seasonal ingredients is a great way to get maximum flavour with minimal effort. I also love supporting local farmers by hitting up the farmers market for as many goods as I can get my hands…

Farro & Cauliflower Salad with Mint and Pomegranate

  I’m a big fan of meals in a bowl- and by that I mean a dish that contains protein, carbs, healthy fats and lots of veg… something you can toss together in one bowl and take on the go, or dish up for a quick lunch or dinner in minutes. I love whipping up…

Chocolate-Orange-Coconut Truffles

  I’ve recently been experimenting with homemade milks, and so far I think homemade coconut milk might be my favourite! See recipe here if you’d like to try making your own. I saved the leftover coconut pulp from making the milk and used them in these delicious whole-food truffles! I’m calling them “truffles” as opposed…

Chocolate-Strawberry-Coconut Smoothie + Homemade Coconut Milk

I’ve recently been experimenting with preparing homemade nut milks. I absolutely LOVE the flavour and texture, and the fact that there are no weird ingredients added. The one thing that is important to be aware of, however, is that homemade nut milks are not a good source of calcium like their calcium-fortified counterparts (i.e. store-bought…

Roasted Baby Romanesco with Tahini, Mint & Pomegranate

Romanesco is one of the most gorgeous veggies around, don’t you think? And who knew that you could get them in miniature size?! The intricate cones and ridges of romanesco are mesmerizing- I could get lost staring at their details! These beauties came from my friends over at Babe Farms in Santa Maria, California. Their…

Pasta with Roasted Garlic & Tomato Sauce

This roasted garlic and tomato sauce could not be simpler, but the flavours are truly incredible- you’ll have everyone fooled! This recipe is one that does not have measurements. Cooking without a recipe is so liberating and fun- if you’ve not tried it before, I encourage you to give it a go! I used to…
