No Time to Waste? Try this Quick, Creamy Vegetarian Green Tomato Curry

Green Tomato Lentil Curry

When it’s 5 p.m., and I’m only just then starting to think about what I’ll be eating for dinner in a mere hour or so, this is a typical meatless meal that I make. I love quick curries and stir-fries, which are often just a mishmash of whatever vegetables I happen to have in the […]

Roasted Curried Eggplant Chips (dairy-, gluten- & grain-free, vegan)

Roasted Curried Eggplant Chips

It is fair to say that I can be a bit of an impulse shopper at the grocery store. (And who can blame me if we think back to my recent post in which I mentioned that grocery stores have a well-honed practice of using psychological and other tricks to get us to buy more […]

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.

Tomato Strawberry Basil Sorbet from Vegan Ice Cream

In my garden, the tomatoes are still producing strong! I planted heritage varieties of Chadwick Cherry tomatoes, a sweet, plump, slightly larger cherry tomato size than the norm, as well as Black Seaman tomatoes, a large, bigger-than-your-hand, dark red-purple tomato. I found these tomatoes had trouble ripening evenly, with lots of cracking with our summer […]

Persian Rice-Stuffed Butternut Squash (Sheet Pan Meals)

Hand me the recipes and point me toward the kitchen. All of this cookbook’s recipes are straightforward and use ingredients you likely already have in […]

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 […]

Big Protein Beet & Quinoa Salad (vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free)

Even though my interest in leafy green salads has started to wane with the arriving seasonal chill, my favourite kinds of salads, whether cold or hot, are still the ones with more vegetables than anything else. The vegetables may be diced small and evenly or they may be chunky, big, wild pieces that say in no […]
