Toronto: Tori’s Bakeshop — A Vegan Bakery

Vegan MoFo has meant that Ashley and I have spent a lot of time in the kitchen. Today was just too beautiful to stay inside, so we went for an adventure: lunch at Tori’s Bakeshop, followed by a walk on the boardwalk. I’ve heard lots of good things about Tori’s Bakeshop, but hadn’t been yet… […]

Ashley’s Nutty Apple Bites

Ashley made these awesome energy balls that look like Larabar-inspired apple pie truffles. I totally need a batch in my fridge for this week! I’ve made energy balls like this before, like these Dark Chocolate & Orange Energy Balls or ones with protein powder, and they’re a perfect afternoon pick-me-up.  You totally feel like you’re […]

Tomatillo & Poblano Stuffed Arepas

The first time Ashley and I made arepas was last summer for Vegan MoFo.  We had a bit too much hummus around, and needed a different way to eat them — so we put our Mexican-inspired Huacamole and Hummusalsa to good use topping our arepas. Since then, I’ve been making arepas as an easy weeknight […]

Ashley’s Vegan Cabbage Rolls

Ok.  I like it when Ashley comes up with recipes!!! Because now I need cabbage rolls.  These look amazing.  I think I’m going to try these cabbage rolls with the napa cabbage lingering in my fridge.  And I think the Cashew Sour Cream is going to be delicious on tacos too — like these Vegan […]

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 […]

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

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! […]

I am so loving this year’s Vegan MoFo experience — Ashley and I have had a couple of fun dates in the kitchen already, and we’re constantly throwing delicious ideas back and forth over text messages. This morning’s breakfast is from Ash, and I can’t wait to make this chocolatey goodness for myself. Enjoy in […]

Vegan Breakfast Tacos

Ashley and I have been so excited for Vegan MoFo this year, we’ve been planning and plotting up a storm.  We have a spreadsheet, and a Pinterest board, and way too many text messages about tofu going back and forth! We got together for our first cooking date last week, and thought we’d create our […]
