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…

Creamy Tahini & Cauliflower Soup

If you’re looking for a super quick and easy recipe that requires minimal effort, packs great for weekday lunches and freezes well for a no-fuss meal in the future- look no further! This soup comes together in no time, with only 3 ingredients to chop: an onion, some garlic and a head of cauliflower. And…

Tempeh, Black Bean & Quinoa Burrito Bowls

While I was preparing the spiced tempeh & black bean mixture for these burrito bowls, my husband came over and snuck a taste and said, “wow, that actually reminds me of meat!”. Yes! Vegetarian and even vegan options can still be incredibly delicious and satisfying – I promise you won’t miss the meat in these…

Salmon Tacos with Grapefruit & Avocado Salsa

These salmon tacos are incredibly fresh and delicious, and bonus: they are bursting with nutrition!!! The omega-rich wild salmon, probiotic-packed sauerkraut, and fibre-filled veggies provide major wellness points. Another great thing about this recipe– it is complete, start to finish, in about 20 minutes. Make this your go-to recipe on busy weeknights! Salmon cooks quickly…

White Bean & Beet Dip

Have you ever made homemade hummus? I assure you it is almost too easy. I’ll admit that I purchase hummus at the store on a regular basis (you can’t do it all!)- but when the mood strikes, I enjoy whipping up an inspired flavour (like this Moroccan carrot hummus), or changing up an ingredient. Cue…

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…

Glow Bowl with Curried Tahini Dressing

The other day I impulse-purchased some beautiful heirloom carrots [insert joke here about the dietitian impulse-purchasing vegetables]. How do you say no to RED carrots? I’ve seen the usual shades of purple, yellow and white before- but red? I couldn’t pass those up! These beautiful carrots were the inspiration for the name of this dish-…

Hearty Lentil-Vegetable Soup

There’s nothing more cozy and comforting on a cold day than a hot bowl of soup- don’t you agree? I made this soup on a Sunday and have thoroughly enjoyed eating it throughout the week…either a warming mug to fuel and fill my belly during the workday, or a steamy bowl in my pj’s  in…

Heirloom Carrot and Lentil Salad

Aren’t heirloom carrots beautiful? I love the varying hues of purple, yellow, orange and white. I have a thing for fruit and vegetables that are different  than their usual shade (am I the only one?)- green cauliflower, orange tomatoes, yellow beets, purple potatoes. So fun! Heirloom vegetables are not merely a feast for the eyes-…

Roasted Veggie Grain Bowl with Romesco Sauce

Have you ever tried romesco (not to be confused with romanesco, that (beautiful) cauliflower-broccoli hybrid)? Romesco is like Spanish pesto- prepared with a nut base (in this case, almonds), and flavoured with roasted red peppers, smoked paprika, garlic and parsley. It is such a fun and flavourful alternative to pesto if you’re looking to spice…
