Super Smooth Hummus

Ashley is my co-hummus-blogger this month and she’s back to talk about our most ridiculous hummus adventure so far: peeling chickpeas.  Yes, really. I feel like I should have something PROFOUND to say in the post that inspired this whole month. But I don’t. Wait, you’ll see. ==== One day I found Smitten Kitchen’s recipe […]

Hummusalsa (Tomato Hummus)

Along with our huacamole adventure this weekend, Ashley and I made a second Mexican-inspired hummus to top our corn flatbreads (arepas).  We thought that along with a guacamole hummus, we also needed a salsa hummus.  And so Hummusalsa was born! The texture on this hummus is totally different from the huacamole — instead of being […]

Guess who’s back? Back again. Heather’s back. Tell a friend. Guess who’s back? Guess who’s back? Guess who’s back? Guess who’s back? Heather’s back!

Roasted Root Vegetable & Leek Pie in a Whole Wheat Crust

This pie is based on my WWII Woolton Pie.  As back during WWII, the British were eating under food rationing, they often made pies with a lid and no bottom crust.  We’ve gotten used to it around here, and do most of our savoury pies with only a top crust.  If you want a double […]

Nunu, Toronto: Ethiopian Vegan Deliciousness

I think Vegan MoFo is a great excuse to go eat some vegan food around town, so off I went with the boyfriend and his Mum to one of my favourite places in town: Nunu (1178 Queen St. West, Toronto). I was first introduce to Nunu by my best friend Pem, and we have eaten […]

Acorn Squash & Chickpea Crumble with Collard Greens

There’s a veggie food blog I read, Food Blog and The Dog (Cook Eat Live Vegetarian), where somehow, every post is something I want to eat.  This was especially true of the Butternut Squash and Chickpea Crumble with Caramelised Onions, Cream Cheese & Oaty Cheddar Topping.  Which looked so divine, I had to make it […]
