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 […]
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 […]
I’ve been experimenting with the green garlic that I’ve been getting in my fabulous veggie box… it’s kind of like having fresh garlic, garlic scapes, leeks, and onions, all at the same time! I used all of the parts of the green garlic in this soup and it was oh-so delicious and garlicky without 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! And we decided to have another experimenting sister-date in the kitchen. This time, we were playing around with socca — a chickpea pancake from Nice of gluten-free proteiny deliciousness. [Heather says: Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.] […]
I think that any chutney/cheese combination would be fantastic on a baguette — mango chutney and brie, or cranberry chutney and goat’s cheese, or tomato chutney and cheddar.
I used one of my favourite spicy peppers here: chipotle in adobo (smoked jalapeno peppers in a tomato sauce).
Reader Sarina inspired me to come up with a vegan version of Spanakopita. I used coconut oil and a baked almond feta. And it’s totally worth making!!
This is my new favourite way to prepare any greens. You could also use it to make delicious kale, or even chard.
One of my absolute favourite foods is Spanakopita — you know, the lovely Greek spinach pastry wrapped in phyllo dough. Now I love everything to do with spinach, but somehow the flaky pastry/spinach combo is my favourite. (And to Sarina, I promise I’m working on a vegan version for you, hopefully for October’s Vegan Month […]
Sometimes you just need sweet potatoes. And to herald the season of root veggies, I’ve put them in a savoury tart. This is not just any tart, this one is gluten-free and absolutely divine. I took it to a barbecue with our friends Mike & Tanya, and we really enjoyed slices of this tart along […]
