Ethiopian Lentil Stew & Teff-Chickpea Crêpes

Vegan MoFo continues, and this week Ashley and I are blogging vegan dinners for fuelling your active lifestyle! My favourite food in the whole wide world is Ethiopian food.

7-Ingredient Vegan Potato Leek Soup

We’re right on the cusp of summer-weather turning into fall-weather here… it’s just starting to get cool and rainy, and so Ashley and I are starting to crave fall foods.  What better way to warm up than with a bowl of soup? We both love Potato Leek Soup, but it’s often not vegan-friendly.  So we’ve […]

Black Bean Taco Salad with Cilantro & Jalapeño Dressing

Sometimes you need tacos or nachos, and sometimes you need a salad. My sister, Heather, and I always need tacos or nachos.  There’s a local vegan restaurant that has tofu tacos with a creamy jalapeño/lime sauce… and we both love to order the tacos, mainly for the sauce. So I’ve been dying to make the […]

Gluten-Free Miso Ramen

I got so excited the other day when I discovered that I could get gluten-free ramen noodles delivered with my veggie box!!! I immediately ordered a pack of the (organic, gluten-free & vegan) Jade Pearl Rice Ramen Noodles — and got excited for the soup I was planning on making. In undergrad, I just about […]

Collard Wraps with Red Lentil & Caramelised Shallot Pâté

  Guys… we made hummus. After last year’s Hummazing Month of Hummus for Vegan MoFo, we had decided to take a break from hummus for this year’s Vegan MoFo. So Ash and I got together for a cooking date to create our first lunch recipe for Vegan MoFo. We decided we’d make collard wraps, and […]

Cardamom & Almond Chia Pudding | kitchenoperas.com

Cardamom & Almond Chia Pudding

Is it dessert? Is it breakfast? Yes to both. Chia pudding is a great sweet breakfast option, that packs in omega-3s, fibre, and protein (chia seeds alone contain 7g of protein per 1/4 cup!). Also, it tastes like kheer (Indian rice pudding, one of my favourite desserts) — I love the almond & cardamom combination! […]
