Southwestern Shepherd’s Pie (Gluten-Free and Vegan)

Thanksgiving dinner is my husband’s domain. Each year the menu is the same: turkey, roast potatoes and parsnips, steamed carrots, sage and onion stuffing, beef gravy, Yorkshire puddings. He’s utterly set in his ways about it. When we first moved in together, he threw a fit because I cut the carrots into chunks instead of […]

Non-Dairy Ways to Make Soup Creamy

I am down with slurping soup all year long. It’s not uncommon for me to curl up with a bowl of split pea soup, baby bok choy stoup or congee on a hot July evening. Kooky, I know. I appreciate that for most of you, soup season doesn’t kick off until the weather cools and […]

Blueberry Cacao Green Smoothie

I’m a creature of habit. Ninety percent of the time, if I’m making a smoothie, it’ll be this one, ’cause it’s my all-time favourite. (The other 10 percent is usually this chocolate delight.) It recently occurred to me that I’ve never shared my favourite smoothie recipe on this blog, though most of my nutrition clients […]

Savory Kugel (Gluten-Free and Vegan)

I didn’t grow up in a strict, fanatically religious household, but we were observant. For us, practicing Judaism meant more than going to shul once a year and eating chocolate gelt during Chanukah (and, sorry to tell you, we did not get eight presents). I went to Hebrew school two afternoons a week, and attended […]

Roasted Figs and Plums

Do you mind if I unload on you for a moment? We’re less than two weeks into September and already everyone has set their sights on pumpkin: pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin curry. It’s driving me batty. Don’t get me wrong, I’m as in love with fall flavours as the next gal. […]

Loaded Morning Muesli

People are constantly asking me how they can incorporate more veggies into their diets, and breakfast is the answer. When we nibble on toast and bagels and pancakes, we’re missing an opportunity to load up on nutrient-rich vegetables. That’s why I’m a huge fan of non-traditional breakfasts. Soups, savory porridges, kale and broccoli bowls, this […]

Beet Noodle Salad

Some recipes instruct you to keep your beets separate from the rest of the ingredients until the last minute so they don’t colour the entire dish. Not here. I love how beets stain everything a brilliant, bright red. I like to think of it as smearing the antioxidants around, you know? I created this recipe […]

Homemade Cabbage Kimchi

A few weeks ago, I posted a photo of my kimchi-making experiment on my personal and business Facebook pages. I wasn’t intending to write a blog post about kimchi, but there seemed to be enough interest in the process, so I thought I would share. Some of you might remember that fermentation is my nemesis. […]

Salted Caramel Pecan Swirl Ice Cream

Do you dig the sweet ‘n salty treats? I used to think these were opposing flavours that could never be best friends. Flakes of sea salt on my chocolate? Nah, I’d rather just flick ‘em off. As many of you already know, adding a bit of salt enhances sweetness, especially in baked goods. Given that […]
