Tempeh Avocado Sandwich with Kale Salad

Sometimes you need a sandwich, and sometimes you’re craving tempeh and avocado. If you don’t know tempeh, it’s a fermented soybean product (doesn’t that sound delicious?  I promise you, it’s great!), which originated in Indonesia, and tastes great in curries.  It’s on the richly umami side of veggie proteins, with a bit of a mushroom-y […]

8 Minute Dinner: Kale & Queso Fresco Soft Tacos

Mmmmmm.  Queso Fresco.  Soft fresh cheesy goodness. I am adoring this new-to-me cheese… I don’t know if it’s because it reminds me of all the amazing meals I had in San Miguel, or just because it’s amazing.  It hardly matters, it’s divine: creamy without being too rich (because it’s a fresh, unaged cheese after all), […]

Ode to a Leafy Green

I ran away to Nebraska for the last week for the wedding of two of my dearest friends. And the closest I got to a vegetable was this red velvet cake: (And yes, it was amazing). And so, I present to you — my longing Ode to a Vegetable I Missed This Week:   Ode […]

Raw Lemony Kale Salad

Ok, this recipe is for all my Kale-Fiend friends out there: Ashley, Pem, Louise, Paul, and Caitlin. (Caitlin, if I make you kale, will you stay home instead of moving to Vancouver?) I’ve been seeing on the foodblogs lately that one can eat kale raw in a salad, as long as you give it a […]

Pear, Ginger & Cranberry Green Smoothie

One of my favourite breakfasts is the smoothie.  Fruit, yogurt, milk, usually coconut, I feel like I’m on a tropical vacation! And I’ve been experimenting with green smoothies lately: adding a leaf or two (up to a cup or two) of dark, leafy greens to my fruit smoothies (not the milky ones).  Green smoothies are […]

Moroccan Yellow Split Pea Puree

As I was driving home tonight and contemplating dinner, I realised I haven’t had split peas in a while.  One of my comfort recipes when I was away at university was this split pea puree.  Really simple, and you could leave the split peas to boil while getting homework done, the recipe really hit the […]

Carrot Koshambri

This is my new absolute favourite way to eat carrots. I was over at my dear friend Pem’s place (yes, the Pem who inspired my Thai Red Curry Quinoa and Kale & Lentil Dal) to make Indian food for dinner this week.  We decided to revisit the Kale & Lentil Dal, adding the wonderful deeper […]

All I want for Christmas: Kale Chips

Ok, these Kale Chips are unbelievably awesome.  They’re a recipe from Meghan Telpner, and if you can don’t believe that something delicious can be good for you, this is totally the recipe to convert you.  We had these as a side dish/appetizer with the Thai Red Curry Quinoa the other night, and it was divine.

8 minute dinner: Miso with Dumplings

This is the soup I make when I have less than ten minutes to get dinner on the table, and need something healthy.  It’s also the soup I make when I’ve indulged throughout the rest of the week, and want something lighter but satisfying.  And I can get it on the table in less than […]
