The Green Kitchen Maple-tossed Beluga Lentil Salad

It’s pretty exciting seeing the evolution of your favorite bloggers go from nearly-secret to explosive, world-wide superstars. Green Kitchen Stories is one of those blogs, written by my friends David and Luise (and their sweet daughter Elsa!). Together they have created one of the freshest […]

Samosa-inspired Snacks with Sweet n’ Spicy Mint Chutney

When the craving for exciting, complex, rich Indian flavours comes calling I reach into my spice cabinet to complement the legumes, nuts, and veggies so prevalent in this plant-forward cuisine. The opposite of lazy cooking to us North Americans, flavours from our favourite Indian restaurants […]
