Are you sick of sweet potato recipes yet? I’m not. There really are endless ways to use those babies. Apparently February is sweet potato month, and I had no clue. Good thing I’ve already been celebrating them all month long, like with this crust and yummy pie. This play on falafel is smoky and sweet, [...]

I’m not sure I can call this a quesadilla, since it has no cheese. Not even vegan cheese. But ‘spicy carrot tortillas’ just doesn’t have the same ring, you know? This is a dead-simple recipe that has a mix of textures and flavours. You’ve got a delicious blend of heat and sweetness, along with a [...]
Remember the gorgeous flatbread I created a few weeks ago? I’ve made it a few times since, and had a hunch that I could adapt it slightly to make a simple crepe batter. Mission accomplished. Now you have this tasty, easy and versatile wrap you can cram with whatever strikes your fancy. I packed mine [...]
I’ve never been a big fan of Valentine’s Day. Probably because I’ve spent most of my life single and feeling grumpy about it. Of course I always loved Valentine’s Day candy, especially the next day when it went on sale. My consumption was insane – we’re talking fistfuls of Hershey kisses and as many cinnamon [...]
I have a motley crew of mismatched glass jars in my pantry that are full of beans and legumes. I love using dried beans because they are way less expensive than canned, plus they don’t have that pesky toxic BPA. Using dried beans also means planning and foresight.

For some, though, eating is not simple at all. We’ve got a plethora of experts touting the ‘perfect’ diet and constantly hear about [...]
Have you guys heard of Bhutanese red rice? My rice awareness was essentially limited to the brown, wild and white varieties, until I read about the wide array of rice options in Alive Magazine. If you’re so inclined, you can read further about red rice over at Lotus Foods, but here’s the Coles Notes version: [...]
What goes swimmingly with a sweet potato crust? Why, a sweet winter squash, of course. This dish reminded me of the spicy butternut squash pie I made a few months ago, except this one is tastier. It was even more creamy and soufflé-like (thank you, cashews), with a bright savory pop of tangy red pepper. [...]
Last week, I turned on the oven to preheat it and began to grate a large sweet potato. It wasn’t till I finished that I realized the oven had not ignited and was totally busted. As I gazed at the pretty heap of delicate orange shreds I was now stuck with, I shrugged and resigned [...]
I was skeptical about how this recipe was going to turn out, right up until I took my first bite and realized it was awesome. Then I had a strong desire to share it, but hesitated because the tempeh didn’t look pretty and there was no natural light. I pondered saving a few pieces to [...]
