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.
I had a similar salad at a local pub (I know, of all places!) and loved it so much that I decided to make my own version of it. This recipe is loaded with protein, fibre and of course flavour. Masala chickpeas with a tahini and creamy cashew dressing paired with tonnes of healthy veggies and topped with toasted hemp seeds. Perfect meal on any day.
This dish was partly inspired by my mom’s cooking. She used to make something like this when I was a child. Cremini and onions are meant to be together! The jerk sauce gives it a kick, while the basil and hoisin sauce give the dish a unique flavour, while keeping the spice in check (well, kind of!). Most importantly, it’s an easy and fast recipe. I hope you like it.
I’ve never been a fan of coleslaw, mainly because of the mayo or Miracle whip used in most recipes, but I love the veggies in it. Here is a recipe I crafted that creates a light but creamy slaw (and it’s vegan!). The avocado provides a creamy texture – no oil required. I hope you like it:)
During my year off from my full-time job last year, I don't think I was sick once. Since I returned to work recently, I've already been sick twice. This latest cough/cold I have made me crave a traditional Chinese dish called congee. It's usually made with a lot of meat, seafood and MSG in restaurants. Here is a simple, healthy recipe that will make you feel a better. Not only is it tasty, but it also had a soothing effect on my very sore throat. Even if you're not sick, this is a nice dish for a cool autumn day.
