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 […]

Watermelon, Feta & Mint Salad

One of my all-time favourite combinations: sweet watermelon and salty feta.  The pairing is ultimately delicious, and I can’t get enough of it.  If there is anything resembling a watermelon salad on a menu, it has to be mine! This salad is so simple, and so it depends on the quality of both the watermelon […]

Cashew & Almond Soba Noodle Salad

I didn’t quite make it in by July, but phew!  Another Daring Cooks’ Challenge, and I get to make my own nut butter! The July 2010 Daring Cooks’ Challenge was hosted by Margie of More Please and Natashya of Living in the Kitchen with Puppies. They chose to challenge Daring Cooks to make their own […]

Kale Salad with Orange Chipotle Tempeh

Yet another massaged kale salad!  We can’t stop with the kale around here, and this kale salad with tempeh is a great new addition to the repertoire.  Tempeh (fermented soybeans) is a great way to get some extra protein in, much like omnivores tend to throw grilled chicken or fish onto their salads, I do […]

Red Quinoa Salad with Lemony Goat’s Cheese

This salad is for my dearest sister, Heather, who you may remember from our Mocha Smoothies or our Hot Pink Salad with Meyer Lemon Dressing. We went out as a family (with the parents) to see the fantastic, tear-jerking musical, Miss Saigon, at the Four Seasons Centre (home of the Canadian Opera Company).  And of […]

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 […]

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 […]

Raw Brussels Sprout Salad!

All I can say, is that Nigel Slater is a genius. I rediscover this every time I read anything he’s ever written.  But, for this point, he is a true genius.  In his latest tome,  Tender, which I am officially proclaiming to be my Favourite Book Ever, he makes the point that “raw brussels sprouts […]

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 […]

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 […]
