Vegan Sushi Salad

Sushi is one of my favourite options when we go out to eat. I enjoy choosing restaurants or entrees that are exotic or difficult to make at home. Sushi is one of those things! To make it at home requires a fair bit of preparation and specialized tools or ingredients. That being said, I love…

Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts

It’s here! The recipe that turns Brussels sprouts into irresistible flavour bombs, whether you’re a Brussels sprout lover or hater. Kung Pao Brussels sprouts! They’re crispy, salty, spicy and a little bit sweet, and full of flavour from garlic and ginger. Even my husband, who is an avid Brussels sprout hater, wanted to gobble these…

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…

Carrot Cake Smoothie

I’ll be the first to admit that I am not a morning person (who’s with me?!). This sometimes translates into boring and repetitive breakfast choices- I could do better, and I know it. Solution: the smoothie! Prepared in minutes and easily made portable if needed. To cut down on my breakfast prep time, I’ve started…

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…

Coconut-Cashew Chai Spiced Energy Bites

Oh my gosh- these bites though. The smell of the chai spices is intoxicating. I’m fairly certain I said that out loud while rolling these into balls! I’ve been making a batch of energy bites every couple of weeks to keep in the freezer. I pop a frozen bite or two into my lunch to…

Gingerbread Energy Bites

Is there anything that reminds you more of Christmas than gingerbread? With the first snowfall of the season I found myself craving the warming spices of gingerbread and I became inspired to capture these flavours in a nutritious bite! You may know by now that I (almost) always strive to minimize added sugars in my…

Chickpea Pancakes with Cauliflower Coconut Curry

Have you ever used chickpea flour? It’s my new favourite thing! Full of protein and fibre, it will keep you feeling satisfied for longer. Chickpea flour is the feature ingredient in these savoury pancakes- a filling and delicious vehicle for soaking up the curry sauce. If you choose not to prepare the chickpea pancakes (though…

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…

Coconut Cauliflower Curry Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

I didn’t get around to meal planning this weekend, but threw this together based on what we had. Turned out to be super flavourful and satisfying! I love cooking without a recipe! Ingredients:  2 sweet potatoes, scrubbed clean and sliced in half lengthways 2 onions, diced 4 garlic cloves, grated Thumb-size piece ginger, grated 2 tsp…
