Creamed Greens with Lemon-Ginger Cashew Cream Sauce (dairy-free)

Creamed Greens with Lemon-Ginger Cashew Cream Sauce (dairy-free)

One of my favourite parts about spring is, of course, the joyful return of fresh, local and organic produce. From arugula to spinach to nettles, greens of all kinds are always at the top of my shopping list. Enjoy them in salads, in sandwiches, in stir-fries and even smoothies.

Try Teff (+a recipe for gluten-free Blueberry-Lemon Teff Porridge)

Lazy Girl’s Ginger Lemonade

Lazy Girl's Ginger Lemonade

There’s nothing that seems to quench the thirst better than lemonade on a hot summer day, am I right? Except maybe a frosty cold b-e-e-r, but we’ll save that for another day.
