Sometimes you just need a damn treat. These buns are best fresh out of the oven, when the chocolate inside is warm and melty. Soft, chewy, bursting with raisins and oozing with dark chocolate. With a hot cup of coffee, this combination is pure bliss!
This cashew based dip is smooth, creamy, and perfectly tangy with a hint of heat from the pickled jalapeños. If you’re avoiding legumes or are simply interested in expanding your dip repertoire you should give this a try!
This crisp is exactly what I crave in the middle of winter. Naturally sweetened with maple syrup, gluten free, dairy free, and packed full of berries bursting with juicy deliciousness. A crunchy topping of toasty nuts and rolled oats sits on top of last summer’s berries that were stashed away in the freezer for moments like this.
Is it a cookie? Is it a muffin? Maybe its a cooffin? One might describe them as a cookie crossed with a muffin top, and let’s all agree that’s the best part of a muffin anyhow. Whatever you want to call them they are D-licious! A hint of cinnamon, mashed squash, three scoops of oats and the most decadent dark chocolate chunks boulders make these cookies an excellent choice for a quick grab and go breakfast (yes cookies for breakfast!) or an afternoon snack.
Kabocha squash slices are coated and roasted with a miso based sauce, then topped off with a hit of fresh lime juice, cilantro and sesame seeds. So easy! So tasty! So deliciously addictive!
Savoury pesto with kale, kalamata olives, sundried tomatoes and creamy walnuts spread on a tortilla topped with sweet roasted delicata squash, umami packed mushrooms and sharp cheddar, then baked until warm and toasty.
Crunchy almonds, warming cinnamon and a hint of coconut… this pear crisp just might be the most delicious crisp E V E R. As it bakes and bubbles in the oven, the most delectable scent permeates through the entire house. I can’t even describe how good it smells… so make it for yourself and see!
Aromatic ginger and garlic, salty tamari, spicy sriracha, these green beans are so delicious I could eat an entire pan of them. You blister the green beans in a hot pan, then add in the garlic, ginger and green onions, next… working quickly you add the sugar, tamari and sriracha. This is where the dish transforms from being boring old green beans to coated in a sticky sauce packed with deep caramelized flavours.
This vegan zucchini banana bread has been my go to snack these past few weeks. A great way to use up zucchini, this recipe makes two delicious loaves. Eat one right away, slice and freeze the other (I separate the slices with parchment paper). With a hint of cinnamon and crunchy walnuts, my favourite way to eat this is topped with a generous amount of tahini (or peanut butter) and fresh blackberries!
This hummus is vibrant in colour, silky smooth and absolutely delicious. Sure, you have to remove the outer pod and then the waxy outer layer to get to the deliciousness, but it’s definitely worth it! You can taste the fresh greenness, making it a bright alternative to traditional chickpea hummus.
