Spring is in the air and this girl couldn't be happier! I love the changing of the seasons, I find it so inspiring. The warming weather has me craving different foods and the longer brighter days give me more energy for creating. This cranberry apple crisp is super simple and very Spring inspired. The tart cranberries are beautifully balanced with fresh apples and will hit that warm crunchy sweet spot thanks to the oat crisp crumble.
Most people ask "how are you doing?" But what they should really be asking is, "how's your gut?". It's no coincident that good gut health and your overall mental and physical health go hand in hand. A shocking number of people suffer from gut issues, and even more don't know that their symptoms are stemming from poor gut health. Fear not! The amazing thing about your gut is that with the right diet and a few specific supplements you can heal it.
It's that time of year again when one sunny day gets everyone thinking about Spring. Unfortunately for us up in Canada we have a few months left of chilly snow-filled days. It was on one of those -20 days that inspired me to create a new soup recipe. I'm a huge fan of soups, all year round, and have made almost every kind out there. I stumbled on a traditional Italian Zuppa Toscana on Pinterest and decided to try out my own vegan version. Let me tell you, this soup is warm, hearty, and super easy to make. All you need is one pot, about 30-40 minutes and your dancing shoes (just kidding you don't need shoes to dance)!
Hi, my name is Maria and I'm addicted to pasta. I could eat pasta everyday and if I'm being honest some weeks I get pretty close. Don't get me wrong, I'll eat a few heads of kale for lunch, but when my body wants carbs glorious carbs, I go for it. So if you're ready to go for it, this garlic and onion white wine sauce is the best thing since sliced bread.
The wait is over!! Here is the much anticipated Vegan Potsticker recipe for all of you wonderful people. Let me start by telling you how simple these are to make. To be honest I was nervous at first about testing this recipe as I assumed a vegan potsticker would be complex and hard to assemble. I am so happy to report, anyone can make these, and they are totally customizable.
Looking for the perfect gooey, chewy, plant-based cookie? What if I told you it's also super easy and quick to make, with all the ingredients going into one bowl! Well friends, let me introduce you to my one bowl white and dark chocolate chip cranberry cookie. If that name isn't enough of a mouth full, you can bet your mouth will be full of cookie by the end of this post.
We are stuck in the middle of a polar vortex and all I want to do is eat this warm, plant-based, comfort in a casserole dish, shepherd's pie. A traditional British shepherd's pie is usually the complete opposite of what you'd think a vegan or plant-based dish should be, good thing I like a challenge! This hearty version is super easy to whip up any night of the week and is packed with nutrients and bursting with flavour.
Let me introduce you to your new favourite, super easy, VEGAN dessert! Since I'm not a huge fan of Valentine's Day, I figured if I must participate it will be to demonstrate my love for food. What better way to celebrate love than a rich and creamy vegan cashew chocolate mousse cake. This decadent vegan chocolate cake is made with just a few simple ingredients that won't have you feeling bad for having a second slice. After all, life is about balance and the heart wants what the heart wants!
Is it a brownie? Is it a cake? Does it even matter? This chocolate brownie olive oil bundt cake is pure decadence and the perfect vegan indulgence. I used Ancient Foods Keros Olive Oil instead of butter in this recipe which gives it a rich texture—you won't believe isn't full of dairy milk, eggs or butter! If you have made a vegan cake before don't worry, I promise this cake is just as easy as it's dairy counterparts but it's better for you and will be one of the best chocolate cakes you've ever had. Yes, I know it's a tall order but this bundt cake beauty definitely lives up to the hype.
When I travelled to Thailand I was always in awe of how the locals could mix simple fresh ingredients all in one pot and produce the most aromatic, flavourful dishes. With this super easy one pot Coconut Curry Noodle bowl I did my best to capture just a sliver of the authentic bowls I had on my travels. All I have to do is close my eyes while I eat this in the dead of winter and I am instantly transported back to hot days and tropical beaches.
Sometimes when I am testing new recipes I have to get very specific products or ingredients. Then I am left with an almost full container of something I may or may not use again. I am trying to be more aware of waste and using everything I have in my house, for this reason, I am trying to get creative and come up with multiple recipes with a few of the same key ingredients. So when I saw my big jar of California Prunes I knew I had some work to do!
For me, the new year brings a clean slate and a fresh start. It's about reflecting and rewarding yourself for the hard work you put in the past year and also taking the steps to plan for an exciting and productive year ahead. This year I am starting off with Clean Program's January Group Cleanse -a 21 day challenge! Don't worry this is not your average cleanse, let me tell you why. They don't promote weight loss or focus on dieting, instead it's a nutrient dense meal planning program to help kick start our lives.
