Eating should be easy, shouldn’t it? After all, it’s one of our innate human instincts, something most of us do effortlessly minutes after being born (along with breathing and pooping, of course). For some, though, eating is not simple at all. We’ve got a plethora of experts touting the ‘perfect’ diet and constantly hear about [...]

Tahini usually gets the short end of the stick, doesn’t it? We blend it into dips, sauces and spreads, eager to disguise its nutty, earthy taste with other flavours. Poor tahini. Always a bridesmaid, never a bride. Until now. In this very more-ish granola, tahini has the opportunity to take centre stage. It doesn’t overpower, [...]
A significant portion of this granola was intercepted by my belly on its way to the storage jar. It all started with the decadent, heavenly aroma that permeated the house. Then I began gingerly breaking off small chunks to nibble on as the granola cooled. Before I knew it, I couldn’t stop grabbing for more. [...]
Most of my readers know that this blog is all about my adaptations or imitations of droolworthy recipes. As I’ve been interning in a cooking school where recipes are creative, fluid and spontaneous, my experimental side has emerged and I’m beginning to play with building recipes from scratch. The result? Amazingness! So head on over [...]
I haven’t made waffles in years. It’s difficult to find a recipe that has no gluten, dairy, eggs or soy. Though I have no problem with eggs or soy, the husband does. And I’m not about to make an entire batch of waffles for myself while he gazes at them with longing. These waffles were [...]
Who likes the idea of eating nutritious cookie dough for breakfast? Um, me. Obviously. I know you’re thinking that ‘cookie dough’ and ‘healthy’ are contradictory terms that can’t be used next to one another, but it’s true. This baked oatmeal is low in calories, high in protein and it’s a good source of fibre. It [...]
Despite its name, buckwheat does not contain wheat – it’s actually a fruit seed related to the rhubarb family. Buckwheat is high in fibre and it’s great for your digestive tract, cardiovascular system and blood sugar levels. Though I’ve used buckwheat flour in the past, this was the first time I’ve tried it in its [...]
A few months ago, I read an interesting book by John Robbins called Healthy at 100 about how to increase your lifespan. Robbins, the son of Baskin-Robbins co-founder Irv Robbins, eschewed the family ice cream business to pursue a life of healthy living that was more aligned with his personal values. One section of the [...]
I was under the impression that I didn’t like tempeh. I always found the consistency strange – kind of crumbly and chewy together – and the flavour nutty yet bland, regardless of the marinade I doused it in. Then I tried tempeh bacon. Yum. This recipe is wonderful – it’s spicy, smoky and sweet all [...]
If you’re skeptical about tofu scrambles, this is the recipe to try. This was so, so, so delicious. It truly imitated the consistency of creamy scrambled eggs and the flavour was addictive. I probably could have eaten the whole pan by myself. I’ve never used saffron before, though I’ve had a small packet that I [...]
