Totally Addictive Kale Crisps

Whew! I made it back to Canada in one piece and the first thing I did when I got here? I made kale crisps. There’s just something about the confines of a plane and watching my fellow passengers chow down on mystery meat that makes me want to run for the nearest bunch of leafy greens as fast as possible. Call me crazy. Although they may appear a little freaky (you try making baked kale look appetizing), I guarantee that these crisps are every…

Garlicky Kale and White Bean Stew

A lot of people have been asking me lately what I eat on a daily basis. To be perfectly honest, most of it is too boring to blog about. Or perhaps I should say “simple”. This Garlicky Kale and White Bean Stew is a perfect example of the humble food I often eat. If you are someone who doesn’t have a lot of time to mess about in the kitchen, this is the stew for you! When I was in school for nutrition I went back home to live…

Meatless Mondays with Martha Stewart – Massaged Kale Salad and Grapes with Poppy Seed Dressing

Everyone enjoys a good massage now and again. As it turns out, so does kale. I first heard about massaged kale at Cru, a restaurant in Los Angeles. The menu described the kale as “rubbed,” and having no idea what that referred to, I ordered the salad out of curiosity. Once the dish arrived, I noticed something right away: the kale was nearly a different color and texture. The soft and delicate, tender and deep dark green leaves were a far cry…

Roasted White Asparagus and Caper Berries

When you weren’t looking, I jaunted off to the south of France last week. Every cell of my body is now officially made of baguette and chèvre. There seem to be many stereotypes attached to the French people, but so many of them are true. They carry bread around. They drink wine at lunch. And they are fiercely passionate about their food. Although breakfast consisted of little else than bread and butter, which I was forced to rediscover, is…

Roasted Kale and Beets with Honey-Horseradish Vinaigrette

Hip hip! I have an oven. And you can bet it’s had a pretty major workout in the past few days. Oh the simple, unadulterated joys of baking granola and roasting veggies – it will never get old. This week I bought a gingantor bunch of purple kale from the biodynamic market and as my hands were getting pretty tired of massaging, I decided to go another route and roast those puppies. If there is anyone out there who hasn’t tried kale chips before,…

Sri Lankan Beetroot Curry & Kale Mallung

Sri Lankan Beetroot Curry & Kale Mallung

Where do I even begin? I guess I’ll start by saying that I feel like I am waking up from the most spectacular, flavourful, technicolour dream. Sri Lanka deeply touched me, from its incredible landscape, beautiful people and of course, the food. The food! The food. When I was first invited by Cinnamon Hotels and Resorts to go on a food tour of Sri Lanka, I was a bit uncertain – to be honest, I didn’t know anyone who had visited Sri Lanka…

Poppy Seed-Crusted Butternut Squash with Kale and Pomegranates

First of all, I need to send out a huge thank you to everyone for your support these past couple weeks. Your emails and messages have meant so much and really kept me up. Yes, it has been an ‘interesting’ time in our lives, but we’re getting used to a new routine and doing things a bit differently…slower. I can imagine that this is very much the shock new mothers experience when suddenly they have a completely dependent person on their hands…
