Coconut & Lime Grilled Kale

The inspiration? A line of text on a blog somewhere that said something like: “marinate kale in coconut milk for four hours, then grill”. You know that went to the TOP of my “To Make” List. And then I went researching, and found that there are all sorts of “grill kale marinated in coconut milk” […]

Vegan Green Mango Salad

I crave mango salad.  In fact, it is one of my favourite things.  However, I don’t eat it very often as I am afraid of sneaky fish sauce making its way into the otherwise very veggie-friendly salad.  I’ve found fish sauce in mango salads one too many times after being assured that the salad would […]

Tom Yum Soup with Brown Rice Vermicelli

I make no claims to the authenticity of this soup, but it sure is delicious.  I am borrowing heavily from Thai Tom Yum Soup, and the other Asian flavours that I enjoy, but you likely won’t find this soup anywhere other than in my kitchen… and now (hopefully), your kitchen! We’ve had this soup as […]

Wheatberry Salad

So the boyfriend and I have been buying pre-made Wheatberry Salad at our local grocery store’s deli counter, and finally decided we could do it better ourselves — and healthier and cheaper, too! There is definitely less sugar in our version than the store-bought one, and a much higher veggie-to-grain ratio.  We like it that […]

Lime & Sesame Steamed Kale

Holy yum. This is my new favourite food — lightly steamed kale with lime juice and a hint of sesame.  Ohhh so good.  You seriously need to try this immediately.  I am putting my stamp of approval on it: “my name is Lindsay and I endorse this recipe!” Go to!  And get your greens into […]
