Spaghetti Pie (with Zucchini Noodles)

I know. When you mash the words ‘spaghetti’ and ‘pie’ together, your mind does not immediately leap to the concept of ‘healthy’. Especially since spaghetti pies are typically loaded with refined pasta, eggs, milk and cheese. Not items we eat in these parts (and by ‘these parts’, I mean my small intestine and colon). This […]

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins

It astounds me that I’ve never posted a basic chocolate chip muffin recipe. Chocolate chips enhance all baked goods. This is a fact. And these muffins? Heaven. A crisp exterior and soft pillowy insides, punctured by bursts of chocolate. Yup. Heaven. Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Muffins Prep time 10 mins Cook time 30 mins Total time […]

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 […]

Sweet and Savory Medjool Date Pho

This is a sponsored post by Natural Delights Medjool Dates, which means I was compensated for my time to develop this recipe. I vet products carefully to ensure they align with my nutritional values, and only feature brands I genuinely use and enjoy. As always, any opinions expressed here are my own. We’re used to […]

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, […]

Toasted Coconut Almond Butter

It’s the love child of coconut butter and almond butter. But this isn’t a clandestine, illegitimate situation where you shun the kid from the family and deny him his right to the throne. Nope. This is the kinda offspring you proudly ascend on a golden pedestal, and then eat by the spoonful. Wait. Did I […]

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, […]

Sunbutter and Jelly Thumbprint Cookies

To illustrate the wonder and delight of these cookies, I’ll recount the exchange I had with my husband after I baked them. Husband: (with his mouthful of cookie) These are really good. Me: Do they taste like peanut butter and jelly? Husband: (looking concerned) Yes. Why? Aren’t these peanut butter and jelly? Me: Yes, there’s […]

Creamy Carrot Dip

Creamy Carrot Dip

It tastes like hummus. It has the consistency of hummus. It even kind a looks like hummus, save for the orange hue. But it’s completely bean-less. This recipe is for those of you who love the flavour of hummus, but don’t dig the toots that often accompany eating beans (though to make ‘em more digestible, […]
