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 …

Summer Corn and Onion Fritters

When people ask me where I learned to cook (or bake), I always say, “Ina taught me.”  (The Ina referring to Ina Garten – The Barefoot Contessa.) Now of course, this is only partially true; I’ve never really met Ina – although I was lucky enough to see her in person in A Conversation with …

Mini Pizza Bites

Food is always more fun when it’s bite-size, right? Teeny-tiny, cute versions of our fave foods always taste better and are so much fun to eat (plus, you can totally eat MORE of them without having to do an extra hour or three of cardio the next day!) Summer is fast approaching and that means …

Vegan Egg Salad

“So what food do you miss most from your non-vegan days?” I’ve been vegan for close to eight years now, and I legit still get asked this question on almost a weekly basis. And my answer is always, unwaveringly, the same: eggs. I always thought cheese was going to be the hardest thing for me …

Sweet Potato “Hummus” Dip

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 and sesame paste, to the …
