BEET HUMMUS

BEET HUMMUS

I have a friend who is vegan and when she visits I usually have some kind of hummus and pita chips available for us to snack on. I bought a beetroot hummus from the store and it wasn’t that great. It was sweet and lacked […]

BUTTERNUT SQUASH WITH CHERRIES & PISTACHIOS

BUTTERNUT SQUASH WITH CHERRIES & PISTACHIOS

This is a great dish to serve when the weather starts getting cold. It’s hearty and flavourful. It can be a side to a roast chicken or served as a main for a vegetarian dish.

BANANA WALNUT MUFFINS

BANANA WALNUT MUFFINS

I feel like everyone should have a banana muffin recipe. Whether it’s passed down from your grandmother or you saw something on the food network. It’s one of those recipes that you keep with you and can create over and over again. I always have […]

POACHED EGGS WITH SPINACH AND FETA

POACHED EGGS WITH SPINACH AND FETA

This is my favourite weekend breakfast. Two soft poached eggs nestled on top of a spinach feta sandwich.

SPINACH FETA OMELETTE

SPINACH FETA OMELETTE

I love omelettes, they are the perfect breakfast and this one packs well for a lunch at work. It can be eaten hot or cold. This makes 4-8 portions depending on how many eggs you want to eat. I make it 4, so it ends […]

RASPBERRY COCONUT ICE CREAM

I love ice cream. I would eat it everyday if I could. This is a nice alternative to the traditional ice cream with it being mostly fruit and mixed together with sweet creamy condensed milk. The coconut cream gives it richness with the hint of […]

CHIA PUDDING

CHIA PUDDING

I went to the store the other day and they were selling chia pudding cups for $3.99. It was a 1 cup serving with a few ingredients in it. I thought to myself, why would someone buy this when chia pudding is so easy to […]

RADICCHIO SALAD

RADICCHIO SALAD

I went to this restaurant in liberty village. They claim to serve authentic southern Italian specialities but really what it was, is the chef going to the grocery store close by and buying prepackaged foods and assembling them – but charging for authentic good quality […]

SESAME SUGAR SNAP PEAS

SESAME SUGAR SNAP PEAS

Lately, I have been trying to get more veggies into my diet without eating salads all day. These sugar snap peas did it for me. They are raw, crunchy, sweet, and salty. The sesame oil gives them a wonderful nutty flavour. They are so quick […]
