Vegan Caesar Salad – Hold the Anchovies

Holy cow, it’s September. This means that my honeymoon is almost over (sad face), summer is coming to a close (really big sad face), but harvest season is in full swing and autumn goodies are on their way! This is my consolation. While we still have some lovely local lettuces in store however, I thought that this recipe by my friend and health crusader, Meghan Telpner, was the perfect way to use up what’s left of the summer’s…

From my Cookbook: Raw Vegan Eggnog

From my Cookbook: Raw Vegan Eggnog

I always know that Christmas is right around the corner when eggnog suddenly appears in my parents’ fridge. My father just loves the stuff and he’ll guzzle through umpteen vintage-deckled cartons over the course of the holidays, especially if guests pop by. Me? I’m not so much into it. Although I can totally dig on the warming spicy scent that wafts from the punch bowl, knowing what it’s made of, kind of makes my tummy flip. Once I…

Meatless Mondays with Martha Stewart – Vegan Chanterelle Cream Soup

The first soup of autumn has a ceremonial air about it. Anticipating the shortening of days, the colder months ahead, the turning inward and search for warmth, I find myself at the stove once again to create seasonal food at its best. The first soup of this fall, I knew would be chanterelle. In part because I am in love with this mushroom, and in part because the one I made last year, totally flopped. I tried going the traditional route with…

Legendary Layer Bean Dip – Vegan, Grain-free

Legendary Layer Bean Dip – Vegan, Grain-free

    Dips are my favourite food group. Yes, food group. If I ever got a tattoo, it would probably say something like: “pass the hummus”. I was recently hosting a party-for-no-reason, and like most of my get togethers they involve a lot of food. But I didn’t feel like making a fallback dip, like tzatziki, or baba ganoush. No. I felt like leveling up and creating something I hadn’t tried to before. Something with BIG DIP ENERGY –…

Plant-Powered Sloppy Joes

Plant-Powered Sloppy Joes

When I was in elementary school I ate in the cafeteria. It was the “cool” thing to do after all, since homemade brown bag lunches were sooo kindergarten. At the time, I thought that the highly processed offerings behind the sneeze guard were a dream come true: pizza, burgers, chicken fingers, fish sticks, mac n’ cheese. But the very best thing of all in my first-grader opinion? Sloppy Joes. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking…

Gingersnap Eggnog Ice Cream Sandwiches

Gingersnap Eggnog Ice Cream Sandwiches

Dear friends, I’ve been hit with the Christmas spirit! Perhaps a little slow on the uptake, this recipe was the absolute magic that knocked me sideways, and it’s better late than never. Especially in this case. To keep this level of deliciousness to myself would be decidedly Scrooge-like indeed. Two treats come to my mind when I think about Christmas: gingersnaps and eggnog. I thought about just posting a raw vegan egg nog ice cream or just…

High-Vibe Condiment Classics

High-Vibe Condiment Classics

Summer is fast-approaching (at last!) and I don’t know about you, but to me this means grilling, eating outside, and enjoying all of the classic, warm-weather treats. But wait! Did you know that there are all kinds of funky ingredients hiding in the most innocuous places, like your ketchup, mustard and relish?! We shouldn’t have to forgo these truly classic condiments just because we’re walking on the whole foods path. No way! So I decided to…
