Parsley Root Puree with Mushrooms, Lentils and Gravy

This dish is the ultimate in comfort food.

I think I could eat this every day of my life. One of my favourite parts of…

Beet & Edamame Salad with Beet-Tahini Dressing

This salad is almost too fun to eat! It may come as no surprise, but I absolutely love and am inspired by colourful foods. Not only does their colour represent body-boosting nutrients, their vibrant hues are almost impossible to resist. If you’re a beet lover (like I am), this salad is for you! Ingredients: 4…

Beet-Lentil Bolognese

This beet-lentil bolognese is hearty, filling and deeply flavourful. Topped with cashew “parmesan”, this meal is entirely vegan and you’d never know it! Cashew parmesan is super easy and quick to make- just put 1/2 cup cashews, 1 clove garlic, 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast and a pinch of salt into a food processor, and…

Tempeh, Black Bean & Quinoa Burrito Bowls

First of all, you won’t find cheese in this recipe (*gasp*- I know, but it’s still delicious!). The creamy, cheesy-flavoured sauce comes from butternut squash and…

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…

Tempeh Tacos

It’s (tempeh) taco time! 🌮 🕟 Spiced tempeh + black bean tacos with avocado-lime yogurt sauce and quick-pickled cabbage and onions. This might be one of my favourite recipes!
