I love soup. It’s the perfect dish since the weather has turned back to fall even though it is June. The great thing about soup is you can use all those veggies in the fridge.
Vegan Jackfruit and Potato CurryMay 25, 2018
This is my very first attempt at using Jackfruit. I bought a can of young green Jackfruit in brine for this curry. Jackfruit is a meaty alternative when cooked and takes on flavors incredibly well which makes it perfect for substitute for pulled meats like beef and pork. A local Indian restaurant serves a Jackfruit curry and my husband really enjoyed it so here’s me giving it a try. It turned out delicious full of flavor, we both enjoyed it.
Vegan Maple Sriracha Chickpea SaladMay 14, 2018
Who doesn’t love a crisp crunchy salad now the weather is turning sunny and warm? In this a salad I used fresh vegetables and prepared them but you can use many of the prepared vegetables that are available at the grocery stores. You could also buy a prepared coleslaw mix instead of the carrots and cabbage.
Vegan Baked Brussel Sprout ChipsMay 10, 2018
Brussel sprouts are “you love them or you hate them” type of vegetable, but I love them. You can enjoy these Brussels sprout chips as a perfect guilt free snack. I love them with my homemade hummus, but you can serve them with your favorite dipping sauce.
Vegan Mushroom Curried Quinoa with Tahini SauceMay 7, 2018
I love Sautéed mushrooms and onions. I often pull out a skillet, toss in sliced onions and mushrooms, a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, you can add them as a side to many dishes. Sautéed mushrooms are one of the best and quick ways to cook mushrooms. Sautéed with onion they get a wonderful flavor.
Another soup, I can eat soup anytime, even though it was 26F outside hopefully summer is on its way. I use lentils a lot in my cooking whether it’s soup, curries or even shepherds pie. Lentil soup is simple, and easy to throw together. It’s my go-to meal when I want something hearty but healthy. . One cup of cooked lentils only contains about 230 calories, but still leaves you feeling full and satisfied. Red lentils are perfect for when you’re in a hurry because they cook quicker than other legumes.
Vegan Ratatouille Shepherds PieMay 1, 2018
One weekend we were away camping in Southampton Ontario and we went into a small restaurant for dinner. On the menu was a vegetarian Ratatouille pie. My husband decided he would try that being vegetarian not vegan. He said it was delicious, so I said I would make a vegan version of the recipe.
Camping Vegan Arrabbiata Penne Pasta dinner reviewApril 28, 2018
We went on our very first trailer camping weekend of the season this May 1st. We decided to go to one of our favourite sites near Collingwood which is Craigleith Provincial Park just outside of Thornbury on the coast of Georgian Bay. Even though its already May the weather wasn’t cooperating. It was hovering around the 0 degrees Celcius temperature (in other words freezing!) Luckily our trailer has a nice gas furnace to keep us toasty and warm. Not being the best planners in the world, We did however run out of gas and had to fill up the tanks.
