When switching to a vegan diet, this kind of wholesome bowls are the perfect way to stay motivated! Both satisfying and tasty, you’ll wonder why you did not started this new diet sooner. Black lentils have an unusual colour which, however, offers more than just prettiness.
Since making my own pizza dough, there is no way back to the frozen aisle! Homemade pizza is a real game changer and is a favorite of mine for Saturday’s dinner parties. This recipe was born shortly after eating at “Virtuous Pie”, a new vegan pizza restaurant chain with locations in Portland and Vancouver...
This vegan pasta dish is a pure gem as it doesn’t involve tons of different ingredients and is super easy to prepare. Save this recipe for those busy nights when all you want to do is lie down and read a great book. Featuring edamame beans and parsley, this spaghetti plate gets a nice and intense green colour once you've put all the ingedients together.
Whether as an entry before a vegan feast or as a main course on a hot summer day, these refreshing endive boats are a delicious salty-sweet dish option! Savory and crispy is my favorite combo when it comes to salads and this one is a pure delight! Endives can be quite expensive in North America, so feel free to replace them with lettuce leaves.
I used to keep my baking power in the kitchen cupboard for special occasions. These days are gone! Since starting this blog, I enjoy a very diversified diet and baking lavish cakes on a regular basis is just part of my landscape now. Francois doesn't have a sweet tooth so he isn't really of any help getting them eaten so we always end up giving away half of my yield. But what do you want, it's a nice feeling!
I love Mexican food! When I decided to cut down on meet and eventually become vegan, I knew I had to find a way to indulge myself with tex mex food from time to time.

Let me introduce my go-to recipe for lazy nights or when I just don’t have the time to cook. I only baked home-made gnocchi once. With spinach leaves, real potatoes and all. It was delicious but oh boy, it took a loooooong time! I think I spent over 2 hours in my – at the time - tiny kitchen, battling around with my pans. Now I just buy gnocchi at my local supermarket but I make sure I pick the good quality ones. An easy way to check if your gnocchi are real is to look at the percentage of potato at the back of the packaging. I always take gnocchi with at least 70% potato. Always.
Kale is so much more than this green piece of frilly lettuce that gets even greener once you cook it. Raw or cooked, I love this veggie so so much because the taste is quite unique. And when you know how packed with all the good vitamins and minerals (manganese, calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium) it is, you love it even more.
Beetroot is one of the coolest vegetables manufactured by Mother Earth! They’re packed with minerals such as iron, manganese, copper, potassium, and magnesium but most importantly, they taste delicious, both raw and cooked! Valentine’s Day was a good excuse to cook something pink, ), a shade dedicated to love. I’ve already taken up the challenge to cook a 100% pink Buddha Bowl, which you can check out here. But stay over here, this dip is way easier to prepare!
