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 …

baked spicy korean “fried chicken”

Somehow I fell down a ‘mukbang‘ rabbit hole on Instagram the other night. (If you’re not familiar, it’s a social media thing where people eat vast quantities of food in front of a camera and share it to YouTube, TikTok and Instagram.) Sometimes it has an ASMR component to it, and sometimes it’s just for …

Cauliflower “cheese” pasta

If you’re like me, you’ve almost always got parts of a cauliflower hanging around your fridge by the end of the week.  I’m the only real fan here, so anytime it gets added to a dish, it’s in small quantities just for me. And I’m always looking for ways to use it up. Yesterday I …

Loaded Baked Potato Soup with Kale

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 …

Vegan Ranch Seasoning and Dip

Have you tried my ultimate ranch seasoning yet? It takes just minutes to make and lasts forever.⁣⁣ I make a huge jar of it and use it for everything – ranch dips and dressings, as a seasoning for roasted potatoes, and as a popcorn shaker or coating for roasted cashews.⁣⁣It’s delish and made from just 6 …

Vegan “Tuna” Sandwich

This is the Ultimate Vegan Tuna Sandwich. I make a tub of this “tuna” mix every weekend and pretty much live on it throughout the week, the same way my twenty-something self lived on real tuna. And every time I take a bite, I’m still amazed at how much it tastes like tuna. The natural …

Copycat Mongolian “Beef”

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 …

Summer Bean Salad

I’m really not sure whether to call this a salad, or a dip, or just the most amazing flavour explosion ever to hit your mouth. It’s kind of all three. Last weekend my cousin Lisa brought this salad to a family BBQ and it was a huge hit. Like we all couldn’t stop scooping it …

Spicy Peanut (or Pea-not) Ginger Tofu

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 …
