Thai Red Curry Veggies

Thai Red Curry Veggies

We’ve had a stressful few weeks around here. And in times of stress, we tend to order in Thai food. But all that ordering started to look a bit silly when I had a jar of red curry paste in my fridge.  So off to create my own curry I went! I have to say […]

Roasted Squash with Shallots and Pomegranate Molasses

I’m still savouring the wonderful Thanksgiving dinner we had Sunday evening. The food, the company, it was all just perfect. I proclaimed this morning that we should celebrate American Thanksgiving as well, just so we can do it again next month. Michael did such a wonderful job as our host. We all had individual place […]

A great resource for vegan (and gluten-free!) […]

One of my all-time favourite Japanese-inspired stirfries involves ginger, garlic, eggplant and a little bit of sweetness (usually from scary refined sugar).  I’ve been craving this stirfry for the […]

Red Kari Squash and Split Pea Soup with Sinful Onions

One of my favourite new traditions, is to start the new year with a bowl of lentil & pumpkin soup.  It’s a tradition from Nigel Slater that I borrowed from his hunger-inspiring account of what he cooked and ate in a year, The Kitchen Diaries. This year, I had on hand a red kari squash […]

Chaat Masala Kamut & Channa

I have been craving nothing but Indian food since my return from the Land-of-No-Veggies, and also needing lots of veggies and vegetarian protein.  As such, I got stuck into my Indian spices in the kitchen this afternoon: coriander seed, cumin, amchur (dried & powdered mango), and dried chili flakes. And I wanted to make a […]
