Our kind neighbour shared some cucumbers from the garden with us. I decided to make this slightly spicy salad. Bites of cold, crunchy cucumbers bursting with garlic and sesame flavours. Yum!
I thought a light tangy beet salad would be suitable for this hot weather.
Unlike our Lionhead bunnies, I’m not a fan of eating carrots. I’m also not that fond of sauerkraut. But I know that these foods are packed with health benefits. I incorporated my partner’s love of peanuts to a sweet and tangy dressing and voila! Now, this fibre- and protein-packed salad is a household favourite and it is super simple to make.
Mushrooms are one of my favourite veggies. Risotto is one of my favourite comfort foods. That's how this recipe came about:)
Our neighbours were kind enough to share with us their first harvest of zucchinis. We also have basil growing. I thought what could I make with these two ingredients on one of these hot summer days? I wanted to have something healthy, juicy and flavourful and this is what I came up with. This raw meal is the real deal:)
If you haven't noticed, I've been on quite the quest to make healthier Chinese food. Because I have a condition known as Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, I can't have most Chinese food at restaurants due to the MSG, food colouring, etc. Here is a healthier version that will surely warm you up and clear your sinuses in this chilly, but beautiful cold weather.
This mild curry is inspired by my mom’s “Chinese-style” cooking when I was growing up. It is packed with flavour and protein. Try it out:)
If you’re one of those people who thinks that tofu is gross or that it doesn’t taste good, here is a recipe that will change your mind! The key to making tofu tasty is marinating it well and finding a brand or type of tofu that has a texture that you like.
This is my go-to smoothie in the morning. Quick, easy, healthy, and yummy! Perfect for back to school or work:)
Over this Thanksgiving weekend, why not cozy up with your loved ones and share the ultimate comfort dish – shepherdess pie, vegan-style. This recipe is originally from Roz Denny’s “The Ultimate Vegetarian Cookbook”; this is an adaptation of the original recipe. Instead of using potatoes, Lionheads recommends using cauliflower. Cauliflower is not only rich in minerals and vitamins, but it also easily absorbs flavours. Your kids may not even know they are eating it.
