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 […]

Chickpea & Collard Greens Coconut Curry

One of my favourite ways to spend an evening with my dear friend Pem is in the kitchen.  We have had cooking dates since we first became friends in high school, trying this recipe of her mum’s for a party, or that recipe in a cookbook that got one of us really excited.  It’s the […]

Belmonte Raw

Want to know my favourite raw restaurant?  Belmonte Raw in Leslieville.  The glorious Carol started her restaurant to serve raw food (which means it’s vegan & gluten-free, so I can eat everything on the menu).  And best of all, Carol features local & organic produce.  And her food is glorious! When I can’t make it […]

I can officially thank Vegan MoFo for one of my favourite dinners ever. I wanted to post a recipe today, so I was inspired to pull together a bunch of stuff into my fridge into a meal. And it worked so well. Usually I take a bunch of leftovers, and put them in a tortilla […]

Huevos Mildred

Ok.  You know how I like Tex Mex breakfast… well, I’ve gone and done it again. This time I’ve made “Huevos Mildred” — kind of like huevos rancheros, but inspired by the Huevos Monty at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen here in Toronto. The menu at Mildred’s changes all the time, but one of the constants on […]

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 […]

Whole Wheat Crêpes with Collards and Cheddar

So earlier this week, I had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (just like Alexander).  I found out that I didn’t get into the school program I was hoping to start in September (boo!) so I needed consolation food.  And the answer?  Whole Wheat Crêpes with Collard Greens and Cheddar. You could even […]
