I've been traveling a lot these past few months for work, which means I have been eating out a lot. Each city has its own unique list of must visit places and inspiring new dishes to try. It has been so much fun but I must admit there is something so nice about being at home and eating some good old fashioned comfort food. This yearning for something familiar is what inspired this warm and creamy, pesto tomato lasagna. Sometimes a girl just needs a bowl of cheesy carbs!
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.
Who doesn't love a warm creamy dish this time of year? This plant based lentil casserole is a great option to bring to any Christmas dinner. With all the gatherings and eating, this vegan dish will definitely stand out. Really anything with a phyllo dough crust is sure to be delicious, but thanks to the lentil filling you can dish up seconds without any added guilt.
When the cool fall weather starts to approach, and the days get shorter, there’s nothing better than curling up in some fuzzy socks after a long day with a big plate of comfort food. Casseroles have literally been around since the 20s and have been known as the one-dish meal that you can cram a whole whack of goodness into (without spending the whole night in the kitchen). This recipe is one of my favourites for the fall and winter because it seriously warms my soul. The best part is that it’s super simple to make and you’ll have leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day! It’s the meal that keeps on giving.
