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

This week I’m introducing you to teff, a gluten-free wonder grain. According to the Whole Grains Council, teff is the “only fully-domesticated member of the genus Eragrostis (lovegrass)” [1]. Lovegrass?! I love the sound of that! Teff is a teeny tiny nutritional powerhouse. Considered the world’s smallest grain at about the same size or smaller […]

Meghan’s Rawmazing Key Lime Pie (dairy-free, soy-free, grain-free, gluten-free and raw)

In cooking, as in life, we sometimes make mistakes we can’t undo. Maybe we add way more salt than a stew needs, maybe we substitute sugar for salt in our favourite gluten-free muffin recipe, or maybe it’s forgetting a key ingredient that just “makes” the dish what it is. Fortunately, I didn’t make any mission […]

Coconut-Vanilla Chia Pudding with Cherry-Rhubarb Compote (dairy-, gluten- and grain-free)

If you’ve ever tried chia pudding, you’re probably in one of two camps: you love it, or you hate it. Chia pudding usually consists of small black or white chia seeds, soaked in a liquid, with or without additional flavourings, spices and/or sweetener, until the seeds plump up, absorbing up to 10+ times their weight […]

Lazy Girl’s Ginger Lemonade

vegan ginger lemonade recipe

This quintessential summer bevvy is a bit like me: refreshing, tart and spicy. Okay, probably more tart than anything! 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. I’ve had homemade lemonade […]
