The simple things in life are often the best and there could not be better words to describe this recipe. I’ve always had a soft spot for Italian food (and always will) and the good news is that there are tons of vegan risotto, pasta or pizza options. If you’re more of a pizza addict, you could bake this delicious buffalo cauliflower pizza or this broccoli and mushroom pizza. But if you’re in the mood for pasta, stay with me!
Guys, this recipe is the best thing on earth. It could sound like I’m exaggerating but I’m not. Peanuts never really were part of my culinary repertoire until now. My mother kept sharing the story of her sister getting back from the US 20 pounds heavier after binging on peanut butter during her whole stay there. I think it freaked me out a bit and I just made sure as a kid to stay away from peanuts all together. What a mistake!
Hello lovely people! It's asparagus season again, yay! I know you can find asparagus all year round but I prefer eating seasonal veggies. And April to May is the perfect time to enjoy as many asparagus as you can. I know I will! It's interesting to see how Mother Nature is sometimes really well designed. Asparagus is typically a veggie that grows in spring, a time of year when we need a gentle detox from the colder, winter month. Eating asparagus will help you just do that!
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!
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.
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.
Sometimes I feel like I have cooked the same pasta recipes over and over again and it’s high time to incorporate a new one in my repertoire! These surprising vegan cauliflower and capers pasta are a great winter comfort food recipe – and it's great for our planet to consume seasonal veggies. I know you can find cauliflowers all year round but why not take advantage of them when they're supposed to be in season (in winter) and keep the eggplants, tomatoes and strawberries for summer!?
Asian cuisine has become such a staple in my meal planning over the past few years. A good reason for that is that it’s super easy. Asian recipes always feature tons of veggies and it's a child's play to veganize them! This sesam rice noodles recipe is pretty basic – no endless ingredients' list – and blends two flavours that go perfectly together: sesame and bok choy. If you’d like to give this recipe a try, I would recommend you invest in a good quality wok or non-stick pan. It is quite essential when you stir fry vegetables...
