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 […]

Coconut Cashew Basil Curry Soup from Seriously Good Freezer Meals

If there is one meal or food I could eat every day, rain or shine, day in and day out, it would have to be curry! Hands down. Like it doesn’t really have any competition (at least in my belly).   Disclaimer: I believe in full, clear and honest disclosure. I received an advance review […]

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.
