Haaa...portobello mushrooms! You're the foundation of my burgers, the pillars of my stir-fries and the roof of my grain bowls. Who doesn't like them, really? I've been dying to create my very own vegan stuffed portobello recipe and here it is! Coudn't be easier, healthier or more tasty, I promise. I've been playing around with pesto a lot lately and it's a nice change to tahini sauce and the likes. For example, I've used some when creating my first vegan pizza, brushing all the broccoli florets with it. I know it sounds weird but wait for the verdict: really scromptuous if you ask me!
I’ve been wanting to do my own fries for a while and finally, here they are, taadaa! This healthy and sunny plate of veggie fries was so much fun to prepare! I felt like a child all over again but without an ounce of guilt. I used to never ever eat fries, especially in restaurants where they’re always super greasy and tasteless…well these days are over now!
Perfecting the art of baking vegan pizza is so much fun! If you're addicted to Italian food like I am, but veganized of course, then you can check out this other delicious vegan pizza recipe featuring broccoli, mushroom and pesto. I'm sure you'll love it as much as this one. When throwing a pizza party you'll probably want to make several sorts. Well I surely do!
I have this thing with Italian food that does not fade away. Baking this flavourful cake virtually brought me back to Sicily where we spent our holidays a few years ago. I have so many culinary memories from this place, the almond wine, the pastries and pasta were just mind-blowing. Have you ever been to Italy? If you’re a foodie like me (and if you NEED sunshine), you should definitely add this country onto your bucket list.
It's not because winter is slowly but surely going away that I will stop making soup! This delicious ginger and carrot soup is pure comfort food and will warm you up on those chilly pre-spring nights. When I have a busy schedule, I end up repeating the same soup recipe over and over again, the well-known "potatoes - leeks - carrots" combination but this time around, I wanted to try something new! And when I think of it, it wasn't that time consuming! If you're into spicy food, I'm sure you will love the carrot + ginger combo and if you don't, think again!
Speaking of really easy and quick recipes, this delicious stir-fry is a must try. Coming from Europe, I was pleasantly surprised to find tons of Asian vegetables at the supermarket in Vancouver. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, then you might have heard about my urge to eat and try different food ALL. THE. TIME. That’s why I bought okras and decided to create a stir-fry recipe with it...
Asian food is such a great source of inspiration for vegan dishes! And because I'm always in the mood for colourful plates, I decided to combine orange bell pepper with some greens and rice noodles. As for the seasoning, I love using sesam oil for my stir-fries as well as adding fresh ginger and soy sauce. This colourful and spicy recipe is super easy and perfect to bring back a little bit of warmth for those gloomy days!
Roasted cauliflower with a delicious tahini sauce might have become my latest addiction! You'll probably laugh when reading this and think I'm a newbie (which I totally am when it comes to exotic food) but I had no idea what tahini was before moving to Vancouver. Since living in Canada, I keep discovering new ingredients every time I go grocery shopping. And this is fun! Ever heard of jicama or kohlrabi!? Nope, me neither! Keep an eye on the blog because I'll be posting vegan recipes featuring these new finds very soon...
