Vegan Rhubarb Raspberry Scones

I’ve never cooked with rhubarb, nor have I made scones from scratch before either. I was in the grocery store, planning on something peach related when I realized peaches aren’t quite in season yet, but instead a pile of rhubarb were sitting there, barely 2$ for two stocks of it. In my childhood home we…

Vegan Potato Salad

Potato salad is definitely a past time favourite of mine during events like family get togethers and bbq’s. Its not something I had thought to make a vegan version of, but recently I was invited to a vegan potluck which required a recipe that would make a substantial amount and be something simple everyone could…

Lentil Protein Topper

I try and fit protein into my dishes as often as I can and although focus on fresh vegetables and clean carbs, adding plant based protein in is just as important. Often, assumptions are made that vegan protein sources are expensive or difficult to obtain but thats not the case! I enjoy splurging on mock…

Vegan Pumpkin Loaf

  Well it’s definitely been a minute since I last posted a recipe of my own, recipe testing can be so time consuming and difficult but super rewarding in the end! Fall baking and cooking is such a fun time with all of the warm spices and drinks. This one took more than once to…

Carrot Cake Energy Balls

Easter rolled around fast and while I didn’t have time to create a carrot cake, I went for the next best thing. Energy balls are the perfect take along for a snack or a great side to your breakfast. These are a great addition to any dinner party or Easter supper this weekend! The best…

Fluffy Vegan Pancakes

My mom used to make the best pancakes for us on the weekends and I always wondered how she got the recipe perfect every time. As we got older and I started making my own food, learning more about plant based and vegan lifestyles, a few of my childhood recipes were left in the past….

Baked Vegetables With Tahini Dressing & Pomegranate

For an easy side dish (or a delicious holiday meal for yourself) I came up with a roast veggie recipe that includes some really nice flavours to pair together. Skip the steamed brussels sprouts that are always left over and add something a little different into your holiday traditions! Eating vegan at a family or…

Gingerbread Oat Energy Balls

Christmas is just around the corner and before the day hits I wanted to do a few super quick recipes for those who are quickly running out of time (myself included). Warmed with spices and a hint of gingerbread flavour, these are perfect to bring to your family dinner to include a healthier dessert option….

Warm Lentil Soup

I wasn’t sure what type of fall recipe I wanted to create and was feeling stuck mostly because I didn’t want to run out and get more ingredients (lazy day!). I ended up throwing what I had at home into a pot and it turned out being this delicious, warm lentil soup. Not only is…

Vegan French Toast

I hadn’t had french toast for years, since my mom would make it for my sister and I for breakfast quite often and we really enjoyed it. The idea popped back into my head a little while ago so I tried out a few ingredients to see if I could capture the essence of french…

Sesame Edamame Salad

I was making my packed lunch this morning and wanted another addition to my list of easy packable lunch ideas. This worked out perfectly because its fast and sits well. The longer the dressing can soak into the cucumbers and carrots the better! Edamame are one of my favourite salad ingredients with a whopping 17g…

Vegan Pasta Salad

Upon thinking of a higher carb, energy filling meal to bring along with me for lunch, I cam across the thought of pasta salad. The dish that was once and still is, an amazing summer BBQ essential. But aside from being a great side dish, I was excited to include this in my nightly meal…
