Pasta and Chickpea Stew

There are probably infinite ways to combine pasta, tomatoes, and beans, and I do intend to try them all. Today’s recipe is another brick in the wall for that particular project: a classic Italian stew called Pasta e Ceci (literally just pasta with chickpeas, but it sounds fancy if you use the Italian name). This particular […]

Roasted Broccoli and a Lemon Tahini Dressing

Broccoli was one of my favourite foods as a kid. I think I was destined to be a vegetarian. And you know, there’s still nothing wrong with a lovely steamed stalk of broccoli. It’s a wonderful side dish. But I do like trying new things occasionally. As anyone that follows my Instagram probably knows, I […]

Sea Salt and Rosemary Almond Crackers

Making almond crackers is almost hilariously simple. Seriously, if I had known before how easy it was, I would have been making them ages ago. Rather than drying out to be completely crunchy, these crackers retain a nice tenderness while still snapping off with a bite. Sort of like eating a whole almond, actually! I […]

Coconut Cream and Tomato Rosé Sauce

I’m a little obsessed with rich, creamy tomato sauces. That’s rather tricky when you’re trying to avoid cooking with butter, milk, or cream. What’s a pasta lover to do? I decided to take a stab at it when I was reminiscing about a recipe involving a baked risotto square sitting in a tomato rosé sauce […]

Valentines Sweet Heart-Shaped Bread Recipe

Warm, freshly baked bread is basically the food manifestation of love. The scent brings back memories of my grandmother baking soft round loaves during summer visits, and of trips to cafes and bakeries in the winter, when the heavenly smell would warm you up from the cold air outside. All this, and it’s pretty much […]

Chilli Loaded Baked Potatoes Recipe

Baked potatoes loaded with vegan chilli

Fluffy, soft baked potatoes with a crispy skin, filled with a sweet and spicy tomato chilli. Could anything be better on a cold winter night (or any night, for that matter)? I’ve been meaning to put together this recipe for ages but finally caved today, as our snow is starting to melt from a warm […]

Zucchini Noodles and Red Lentil Bolognese

Last night I went out for dinner for my boyfriend’s birthday. He wanted spaghetti, so that’s what we got — huge, terrifying portions of spaghetti. I had a pasta primavera (thank god I don’t have a gallbladder anymore, since the sauce was oil-based) with lots of veggies, but I still ate an unwholesome amount of […]

Creamy Cauliflower Sauce

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with cream sauces. Yes, they were delicious when I was eating them. But also yes, I always felt super sick afterwards. Maybe its from all the rich ingredients, or maybe I have no self-control. Either way, Alfredo was always a bad risk-reward balance. I created this recipe in an […]

Adorable Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Gnocchi might be the perfect food for a lot of reasons. It has excellent texture and taste, can play nicely with almost any sauce, and it’s shockingly easy to make. Of course, like a lot of foods, there are different ways to complicate the gnocchi recipe to make different flavours and textures come through. Most […]

Sweet Peach Compote

I had a moment of real disappointment last summer when I bought a pint of beautiful, fuzzy, lovely peaches at the grocery store only to take them home and find them rock hard. Yes, probably my fault for not checking them before I bought them. But I cringe at smushing fruit in the grocery store […]
