I am a firm believer that cooking food from scratch is far less expensive than eating out or buying prepackaged foods. In my e-book Healthy Eating on a Budget, one of my top recommendations to save money is preparing meals at home. But the exception to that rule? Homemade vegan dulce de leche ice cream. […]

Dairy-Free Raw Fudge Brownie Ice Cream

Ice Cream Friday: Raw Fudge Brownie Chunk Ice Cream

This recipe makes a LOT of ice cream. You’re probably fine with that. I am too. I pleaded with Tim to help me eat this dairy-free ice cream, as while everything in the recipe is healthy it’s not so healthy when you eat an entire batch on your own. He had one bowl, declared it […]

Gluten-Free Sorghum Salad with Tahini Dressing

Gluten-Free Sorghum ‘Couscous’ with Tahini Dressing

Is this what happens when you’re a grownup in your mid-30s – you suddenly begin eating salty chocolate? […]

15 Ways to Flavour Cashew Cream

Last week, as I gorged on cashew cauliflower cream sauce I was awash with appreciation for the cashew nut. Not only are these guys high in protein, bone-building magnesium and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, but they are also one of the most versatile ingredients in a dairy-free kitchen.

Gluten-Free Cookie Dough Bites

Chickpea Cookie Dough Bites

Sometimes you just wanna eat a damn chickpea. And what would prevent someone like me from eating a chickpea? Um, neuroses, in a nutshell. I’ve spoken before about the complicated relationship I have with food, and the fear that eating certain foods might worsen my symptoms of Crohn’s disease. Problem is, there are so many […]

Gluten-Free and Vegan Buckwheat Matzo Balls

With some recipes, you don’t need to reinvent the wheel. I’ve looked to others for allergen-friendly recipes for matzo balls, the classic Jewish dumpling. I’ve successfully made these delicious gluten-free and dairy-free matzo balls, as well as grain-free matzo balls. However, the gluten-free AND vegan matzo ball has eluded me for years. After many tries, […]

Vegan Egg-Free Tofu Scramble

Greek-Style Smoked Tofu Scramble

My last post for Food Bloggers of Canada shared my favourite ways to create egg-free brunches. Then I realized it’s been awhile since I’ve shared a new recipe for an awesome vegan breakfast.
