BROCCOLINI LENTIL SALAD

BROCCOLINI LENTIL SALAD

I love beluga lentils, and I love broccolini. Put those two together and scatter with chilies and I’m happy. I made this for my friend’s birthday. She has become a vegan so my challenge this year was to make an exciting, interesting, and delicious dinner. […]

CHIA HYDRATOR

CHIA HYDRATOR

This is my go-to drink after swimming. It rehydrates me, replenishes my electrolytes, and gives me some protein and fiber from the chia seeds. Chia seeds have so many health benefits and this is a nice way of getting them into your diet.

RED LENTIL PASTA WITH SAUSAGE

RED LENTIL PASTA WITH SAUSAGE

I’ve never been a fan of pasta alternatives, but now that there is more of a demand for them, I have found that there are some really good ones on the market. When it comes to red lentils, I only eat them in a soup […]

I’ve made many variations of this biscuit. This jalapeno cheddar is my newest one. It tasted like cornbread. The almond flour gives it the cornbread texture. It’s also keto friendly.

CAPONATA

CAPONATA

This side dish is packed with veggies and has a sweet and sour element to it. I like to make a batch of this and keep it in the fridge. It’s so versatile, you can add it as a relish to grilled meats, make flat […]

MISO GINGER BEEF

MISO GINGER BEEF

Recently I have been experimenting with miso. Up until now, I have only had in in its soup form. I have now learned that this ingredient is so versitile and can be used in so many ways, from a seasoning to a marinade. This was […]

MUHAMMARA

MUHAMMARA

When I was visiting turkey this spread was always offered as an appetizer with bread. It was my favourite. I had no idea what it was or what was even it in. All I knew is that it tasted delicious. I’ve seen this made to […]
