Gingered Carrot and Yam Dip

Do you think we can learn to love the foods we hate? A couple of weeks ago, I shared my new appreciation for olives, and now I can add ginger to the list of foods that are growing on me. Peppery, spicy ginger is one of those flavours I’ve never really enjoyed. Well, except for […]

Mediterranean Millet Flatbread

I’ve never been a fan of eating olives. Hold on. I’m being too diplomatic here. I have always despised olives. I frantically ask restaurant servers to leave them off menu items. I firmly believe they don’t deserve to be classified as a pizza topping. I’ve never ordered a martini. In the last year or so, […]

Nutty Lucuma Bars

I have become obsessed with no-bake bars and squares. They’re easy. They’re delish. And this recipe is so healthy it’s practically a salad. Here’s why: Walnuts are packed with omega-3s, protein and fibre Flaxseeds contain unique plant fibres called lignans that offer antioxidant protection; flax also has a mucilaginous quality, lending a soothing hand to […]

Breadless Tempeh Veggie Sandwich

I’d like to introduce you to a new culinary trend: tempeh bread. I feel like a genius. A trailblazer. A maverick, if you will. ‘Cause while there are plenty of recipes that feature tempeh in sandwiches, I’ve yet to find one that uses tempeh to encase sandwich toppings. (Trust me, I googled.) This one is […]

Spicy Baked Sunbutter Tofu with Broccoli

Some of you might not consider 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to be spicy. For a wimp like me, this entrée was a little inferno. Laugh all you want. Cayenne can be a controversial topic in the nutrition world. On the one hand, it’s a nightshade vegetable, which can instigate inflammation. But, on the other, […]
