Roasted Vegetable, Sausage and Tofu Skewers

It’s BBQ season! Unfortunately, Mother Nature hasn’t been the most cooperative lately. Half the country is trapped in an intense heat wave, and the other half drenched in rain. Neither are ideal situations for firing up 30,000 BTUs of heat. That’s why I love this indoor BBQ recipe. It’s perfect for days when you can’t …

Smoky bbq brisket with onion jam

Weekends are for slow cooking. Especially rainy weekends like we’re having today. Since Mother Nature isn’t interested in outdoor BBQs right now, I’m bringing the outside indoors with this vegan take on a Smoky BBQ Brisket. Smoky BBQ sauce, brown sugar, spices and caramelized onions give this seitan-based roast a nice crisp bark on top …

We woke up to a light dusting of snow this morning – not enough to really stick (it’s all gone now), but enough to remind me that winter is on its way.⁣⁠⁣⁠Of course, as I’m typing this, I’m seeing the weather forecast will hit 60F again by Friday, but it’s just for a day or …

I grew up in Canada, but I’ve spent a lot of time in the United States. For a number of years I worked with U.S. based companies and spent a lot of time traveling back and forth to cities like New York, Dallas and Atlanta. And of course, I’ve vacationed across America for almost my …

I also like to call this “clean out the fridge tofu”, because its the perfect opportunity to make a fabulous dish using all the leftover veggies loitering around your fridge. This dish is all about the sauce. It’s thick and rich and has the perfect balance of heat, sweet, salty and tart. It’s also really …

If you celebrate any Jewish holidays, or even Shabbat dinner, it’s pretty much a given that you are familiar with the ubiquitous beef brisket that your mom learned to make from her mom (who learned to make it from her mom…) After all, it’s pretty much required eating at the Seder table…and for days afterwards. …
