Cream of Asparagus Soup

Asparagus is a springtime veg which has decided to grace us with its presence, and has been doing so for the past few weeks. Did you know that once asparagus is planted, it can only be harvested 3 years later? Though it may be playing hard to get, asparagus is well worth the wait 😉…

Beet Hummus Collard Wraps

Collard wraps bursting with vibrant colour. Are you bored with your regular sandwiches or wraps? Are you trying to mix up your standard sandwich routine? (Okay, I fully acknowledge my first sentences sound like the beginning of a bad infomercial where you can pay in 4 easy payments of 49.99$ 😉 )If so, it’s time…

Especially Good Brown Rice With Mushrooms

By now, you’ve probably come full circle to realize that I love adding ingredients to recipes where they wouldn’t normally be found. What can I say, I like being artful and imaginative in the cocina! Especially when it comes to using “anti-ageing” ingredients like matcha. It isn’t my first rodeo when it comes this superfood. I’ve talked about…

Green Pea & Avocado Soup

You’d think by now I’d be drowning in soups (what with all these blog posts on soup). Alas, I’m not, but I’ve used my nutritionist skills to build a makeshift raft and it’s waiting in the corner of the room, just in case I should need it. Today’s soup post is a pea soup post….

I tended to gravitate more towards the latter. For some reason, mint and chocolate are just so good together. Mint choco chip and…

Raw Vegan Key Lime Pie

Did you know the Key Lime Pie was declared the official pie of the state of Florida in 2006? Understandably so. Who doesn’t like a zingy slice of creamy and rich key lime pie? This recipe is truly dessert perfection. For this recipe, I ditched Graham crackers, eggs, artificial colouring, cream, sugar and condensed milk (I’m…

Cool as a Cucumber-Dill-Avocado Soup

  Spring has sprung-ish! Here in Montreal, Mother Nature is being a real woman and cannot seem to make up her mind. She keeps switching back and forth between winter and spring (mild days alternating with snowstorms, the Montreal usual tee hee…). Hopefully this summer-y recipe will hasten spring’s arrival 🙂 . Spring clean your…

Chocolate-Chili-Avocado Mousse

Here is a dessert worthy of the Aztecs, thanks to the very subtle chili taste. This recipe is easy as making toast, literally 🙂 . Take the following ingredients: 2 ripe avocadoes 4.5 tbsp. cocoa powder 4 tbsp. honey 1/4 tsp. cinnamon 3 tbsp. unsweetened almond milk 2 pinches of chili powder (Berries, for garnish) and (gently)…
