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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

Grain-Free Plum Crisp

My balcony garden was a semi-bust this summer. Sure, the herbs did well. But my spinach died, the bees didn’t visit my zucchini, and raccoons ate the few strawberries that bloomed. Some of you might be flush with end-of-summer produce right now, eager to find creative ways to eat it, freeze it or preserve it. […]

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 […]

Homemade Sesame Tahini

Jars of tahini used to last a long time in my house. I’d use a daub here, a spoonful there, but overall it was a condiment that was plucked out of the fridge sparingly. This is no longer the case. I use heaps of tahini in smoothies, dressings and sauces. I slather it on toast […]

Baby Bok Choy Stoup with Coconut and Miso

‘Stoup’ is a delightful word, isn’t it? A hybrid of stew and soup, stoup is full of rustic whimsy and I can’t believe I’ve never used this descriptor before, because it represents 70% of the food I eat. There’s nothing more comforting, or easier to cook, than stoup. Doesn’t matter if it’s July or January, […]

Spiced Mushroom and Bok Choy Stir-Fry

Ten years ago, stir-fries were my jam. I lived in a dilapidated bachelor apartment in South Granville. My kitchen was equipped with appliances from the 1950s, including an oven that burned most things and a freezer filled with frost I chipped away each week with a dull knife. (If you’re curious, you’ll find a picture […]

Collard Wrap Cucumber Sushi Rolls

Last year, I made these tasty Greek-inspired collard wraps and promptly forgot about them, until this fabulous lady brought veggie collard wraps to a potluck party at my house. Suddenly I was struck with the thought that collards might make an incredible substitute for nori sheets in sushi. And I was right. Can you still […]
