Pulled Jackfruit Tacos with Avocado Lime Crema and Strawberry Salsa

Tacos are definitely up there in terms of summertime fare. Lackingย a little taco inspiration though? Say hello to your new favourite: pulled jackfruit tacos ๐Ÿ™‚ I was feeling pretty inspired over the weekend and decided to finally give pulled jackfruit a whirl as I’d seen this featured in sloppy joe and curry recipes (stay tuned…

Banana Walnut Muffins

These muffins are maravillosa, to say the least. They’ve got a delicate crunch to them, are 100% bakery-worthy and can be whipped up in no time! Theseย can easily be munched on as part of your breakfast, or packed in your lunchbox (do people still use lunchboxes?) for a banana-yย snack. Let’s get our Betty Crocker/Martha Stewart//Niki…

Puttanesca Penne

Puttanesca penne is a pasta dish originatingย from Naples, in Southern Italy. It is thought that some women (let’s call them ladies of the night) used to make this pasta dish to attract men (let’s assume they were looking for company) with its pungent flavours. Real talk (and after having made it, that totally makes sense…

Montreal Eats: LOV

YES! The day has come. For an extremely long time, I had been dreaming of a fancy-ish, trendy, fun and vegan restaurant in Montreal where both food and service were exceptional. LOV is it! While there are many hot spots to grab a vegan bite around town (which I love supporting), in my opinion, none…

Golden Beet Soup

Baby, it’s cold outside! This soup should help ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you’re anything like me, you love making soups for the winter “hibernation” period! During the harsh winter months, curling up in warm blankets and flannel pyjamas and consuming nothing but warm food and beverages is my protocol ๐Ÿ˜‰ This soup fits the bill and helps…

Fig & Date Squares

Date squares are the ultimate comforting dessert, it’s true. Buuuuut, I had a huge bag of dried figs in my pantry feeling like it lacked a sense of purpose. Therefore, I decided to experimentally tweak these beloved bars into a hybrid – one that tastes like a cross between Fig Newtons and thick crumbly date…

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰…

Tips for A Great One Pot Pasta

Whoever likes aย flexible meal, which yields less dishes and is ready in a cinch (about 20-30 minutes),ย raise your hand. Now that all your hands are raised, let’s talk one pot pasta!

Olive Oil & Orange Oatmeal

This morning I decided to be an oatmeal artist and put a spin on traditional oats by experimenting with some different mix-ins: orange for a citrus burst, almonds for vitamin E rich crunch and thyme for a savoury twist. The unique result is heart-healthy (its soluble fiber does wonders for cholesterol levels), diabetes-friendly (low glycemic…

Mango Coconut Chia Pudding

I’m definitely a chia seed pudding enthusiast. Such puddings are great for breakfast on the go (especially if you make them the night before ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) and/or make for a satisfying and energizing snack. Chia seeds may be puny, but they contain legitimate amounts of protein, calcium, iron, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Talk about…

Almond Mylk de la Casa

Once you go home-made, you never go back. This is especially the case with almond mylk. In my humble (or not so humble) opinion, home-made almond mylk trumps store bought for a variety of reasons: Cost. Withย a cup of almonds, you can make both a liter of almond milk and obtain about 1 cup of…
