Harissa Carrots and Fennel with Lentils

…ish-list restaurants in two groups: the vegetarian restaurant, and the non-vegetarian restaurant that has enough veg-friendly options to be worth the visit. As much as I find a lot of inspiration at both of these types of establishments, they can also have their drawbacks. First, the vegetarian restaurant, bless them, can tend towards the dated, you know what I mean? Overly-sauced, overly-cheesed, overly seitan-ed out places that offer satisfying,…

Good Gravy!

…Christmas without a mashed potato volcano. I gave up gravy when I became a vegetarian, but up until now, I’ve even avoided the vegan versions of the ubiquitous brown sauce. Many vegan gravies are made from margarine, cornstarch, food colouring, and a whole host of super-processed ingredients that I just don’t groove with. Here’s one that my friend Eva came up with made from only three whole food ingredients, and sooooo tasty! And since I also avoi…

Autumn in a Jar: Fig Jam with Lavender, Thyme, and Walnuts

…ecipe comes from the book The Savory Way by Deborah Madison who opened the vegetarian restaurant Greens in San Francisco. Her recipes are innovative and sophisticated, yet still accessible. I was totally enamored with the unique combinations of familiar ingredients and flavours, and it seems like she has a real knack for reinventing vegetarian classics. This fig jam for example, imparted with rich, autumnal aromas is a study in seduction. The lusc…

Spicy Roasted Broccoli with Almonds

…places I’ve ever visited, it has one mean food scene. Even as a discerning vegetarian you can get a tasty, non-compromising meal on almost every corner. And their take-out situation is a whole other ballgame with salad bars, healthy sandwich joints, and juice and smoothie stands all over the place. Why can’t the rest of the world get on board with this idea of wholesome “fast food”? It takes longer to stand in line at a burger joint waiting to get…
