Sweet Potato “Hummus” Dip

0 comments

So I really want to call this “hummus”, but with a very noticeable lack of chick peas (the traditional ingredient in hummus), it clearly isn’t, so we’re going to stick with Sweet Potato Dip. But make no mistake, it is designed to mimic hummus in every way, from the garlic […]

Vegan Coconut Almond Macaroons

1 comment

I think I’ve tested about 12 versions of vegan macaroons for this post. Seriously. For a bite-size dessert that should be really simple to make, that’s a lot of trial and error. Here’s what’s kept me up at night with this recipe: replacing the eggs. Now for most baking recipes, […]

Spanish Quinoa and Peppers (GF)

1 comment

So I’m going to start off by saying this isn’t a traditional Passover dish. But I’ve come to learn over the years – especially since adopting a plant-based lifestyle, that traditions aren’t written in stone. They are made by those you share them with, and sharing good dishes (whether time-tested […]

Spring Tempeh “Chicken” Salad

1 comment

Last week we had a brief glimpse of spring, and it put me in the mood for all kinds of light, airy, spring-like dishes. While I’ll always be a comfort food kind of girl, the thought of light salads and sandwiches, and easy on-the-go meals is calling to me. So […]

Roasted Butternut Squash and Leek Soup

I’m eating this soup for breakfast today.  I’m not kidding.   It’s Monday, and it’s raining. (Welcome to November in Toronto), and I spent my early morning running the kids to school, grocery shopping, and hauling out garbage bins under a blustery mist of rain, and I’m chilled to the bone.   While […]

Garlicky Spinach & Bacon Dip

0 comments

This is THE spinach dip you need in your life.  Game day, girls night, holidays, Tuesdays…any reason is good enough to make this dip. It is the most spectacular dip.  Creamy and crunchy, salty, savory, and yet slightly sweet. It hits all the notes. But don’t just take my word […]

The Ultimate Tofu Scramble

0 comments

Let’s be honest here, eggs are a hard thing to replace. And whenever I’m asked “what’s the thing you miss most now that you’re vegan?”, my answer is almost always eggs. They were always an easy go-to dish, and incredibly versatile.  But, knowing what I do about them, I prefer to […]

Cinnamon Sweet Potato Muffins (Gluten Free)

TGIF! For my kids, this means super-special treat day in their lunch.  I usually try to keep sweet treats to a minimum during the school week, but on Fridays, the kids get an extra yummy treat in their lunch.  And they look forward to it all week! Of course, extra […]

Maple Smoked Tofu Bacon

1 comment

We call this ‘Bacon Candy’ in our house. For any herbivore missing the sweet, smoky, chewy taste of a good strip of bacon, this recipe is for you.  We prefer it with tofu (my kids haven’t quite hopped on board the tempeh train yet), but you could absolutely swap the […]
