Lionheads’ Quinoa & Peanut Salad

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.

Lionheads’ Summer Zucchini Noodles

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:)

Lionheads’ Hot and Sour Soup

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.

Shepherdess Pie

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.
