Broccoli Green Curry Coconut Soup

This broccoli green curry coconut soup is an exotic and flavourful departure from the classic cream of broccoli soup. Aromatic garlic and ginger, curry paste and coconut milk come together to create a soup that is a far cry from the congealed goop in a can we all had growing up. No wonder broccoli gets…

Red Curry Carrot & Sweet Potato Soup

Okay. This soup is absolutely delicious and you should probably try it! You may even have all of the ingredients on hand at this very moment. That’s precisely how I dreamt up this soup- with some sweet potatoes that needed cooking and a pantry full of staples (red lentils, vegetable broth, coconut milk)- this soup…

Peanut-Coconut Curry

  This peanut-coconut curry is seriously rivalling my favourite Thai restaurant. Loaded with vegetables and served of cauliflower “rice”, it’s a healthier version I can feel great about including regularly. It is possible to create healthier homemade versions of your favourite takeout dishes. I took a shortcut with this recipe by using prepared red curry…

Creamy Tomato-Cashew Soup with Herbs

Every year I say it, yet every year it takes me by surprise- how is summer over already? Okay, I suppose it’s not technically over until September 21st, but it sure has been feeling like fall these past few weeks, with cool (i.e. FREEZING!) evenings and the changing colours of the leaves. Gone are the…

This vibrant salad full of crunchy, creamy, sweet, savoury and spicy goodness will keep you coming back for more! The crispy,…

Pasta with Tomatoes and Creamy Cauliflower Sauce

Every time I create a recipe I keep in mind the nutritional balance of the meal. This may not be a concept that is considered for all recipes out there on the Internet. I must say I come across many that are loaded with carbohydrate or lack a protein source. Meals such as these will…

Nectarine, Avocado and Lentil Salad

How beautiful are these colours? I’m always amazed by the beauty of fresh fruits and vegetables. I think it’s so important to pay attention to food- notice the colours, the textures, the smells, and of course, the tastes! I think it’s too easy to eat mindlessly these days- and I’m certainly guilty of it myself…

Lentil-Walnut Meatless Balls

This recipe was actually inspired by a fridge full of zucchini! We’ve headed north for the weekend (as far north as I’ve ever been, in fact- Thunder Bay, Ontario!), and I wanted to use up our fresh produce before we left town for a couple days. You may know by now that I despise throwing…

Veggie Lover’s Bowl

The veggie lovers bowl! This ☝🏼 sums up a perfect meal for me. Loads of veggies (including my fave, beets! Oh and my other fave, asparagus!), red quinoa and chickpeas, topped off with a delicious creamy parsley-dill sauce. And of course, avocado! Who am I kidding, I love alllllll the veggies. 💕 This parsley-dill green…
