Vegan Broccoli Stalk Soup

Vegan Broccoli Stalk Soup

As I’ve mentioned before, I feel strongly about preventing food waste. If you want to get on my bad side, wasting food will do the trick (though I really wish you wouldn’t). Here’s another way you can avoid it: make this broccoli stalk soup. Broccoli is a popular vegetable, and it wasn’t until a few years […]

Dairy-Free Mocha Almond Chocolate

Mocha Almond Dairy-Free Chocolates

Hello, friends! I’m popping in today to share a quick and easy recipe for dairy-free chocolates, which was inspired by the mocha almond fudge ice cream recipe I made a few months ago that I basically ate in one sitting. (No, no, I didn’t eat it all at once – but I was tempted.) As […]

Dairy-Free Potato Pie Smoothie

Vegan Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie

Sweet potatoes and yams are usually referred to interchangeably – I’m guilty of this, too. Throughout this blog, you’ll see me refer to recipes and ingredients as yams where they are, in fact, sweet potatoes. (Check out the Kitchn for a helpful tutorial to help you tell the difference.) I use the word ‘yam’ because I […]

Dairy-Free Mashed Yams

Naked Mashed Sweet Potatoes (Vegan)

Some foods taste better when they are simple and unadorned – and sweet potatoes unquestionably fall within that category. I use sweet potatoes in all sorts of recipes: blended into dips, as the base for crusts, in chocolate pudding, and of course in soups. Sweet potatoes make everything taste better. But my favourite way to eat them is steamed […]

Blackberry Prune Smoothie Bowl

Happy 2016 everyone! Many of us launch a new year with a litany of goals and intentions. Lose weight, get boyfriend, quit sugar, read more books, go to the gym. In the last few years, I’ve identified an annual set of words that will guide the 12 months to come. This year, however, I found […]

Dairy-Free Hot Chocolate Mix

DIY Edible Gift: Vegan Hot Chocolate Mix

I’ve never been a skiier, so I don’t have memories of tumbling indoors after a long day on the slopes, cheeks pink, ready to hunker down by the fire with a steaming cup of hot chocolate to warm my numb fingers. I am, however, no stranger to hot chocolate. On cold wintry days after playing in the […]

Dairy-Free Chocolate Prunes

Chocolate-Dipped Prunes (Dairy-Free)

Prunes have a marketing problem. I’m sure more than half of my readers didn’t even click on this post when they spied the word ‘prunes’ in the title, even alongside the promise of chocolate. I’ll bet most of you associate prunes with two things: your grandmother, and constipation. A few years ago, plum growers lobbied […]

Dairy-free and Gluten-free Soup

A Simple Vegetable Soup

This soup is so simple I wonder if it even qualifies as a recipe. It’s more of a collection of ingredients that don’t take much time, skill or technique to prepare – and you probably don’t need me to tell you how to make vegetable soup anyway. But isn’t that what all recipes are – […]

What to do with squash seeds

Don’t Toss Those Squash Seeds!

As individuals, we toss $14.6 billion dollars worth of food away every year. When you include the food waste from restaurants, grocery stores, food manufacturers and farms, that amount rises to a staggering 31 billion. Our food waste not only impacts our environment, but is especially thoughtless considering nearly 850,000 people visit food banks every month […]

Vegan Carrot Bread

Gluten-Free Carrot Bread

When this gluten-free carrot bread came out of the oven, I thought it was a fail. It crumbled when I tried to cut it, and the flavour seemed lackluster. I put it in the fridge overnight and since I hate wasting food, I gave it another chance the next day. (Food waste is one of […]
