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!
Warming spices, aromatic ginger and garlic, saucy deliciousness. A quick and easy weeknight meal. Simmer chickpeas in a large pot with pureed tomatoes, spices and steeped black tea. Cook up a pot of rice and you’ll be eating a hearty comforting meal, better than any take out chickpeas in no time at all.
Roasted sweet potatoes stuffed with sautéed onions, peppers and tofu cooked in a saucy spice mix. Top it all off with a dairy free cashew sour cream! Sweet, spicy, savoury, creamy, tangy… this hits all the notes, sure to leave you satiated.
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!
Phew, that’s a mouthful! Savoury and satisfying, this veggie packed sauce with grass-fed/grass-finished beef is served on top of roasted spaghetti squash. Nature’s noodles, simply roasted in the oven, a flavourful sauce simmered on the stove, all piled high and topped off with a bright and tangy, vibrantly green parsley caper sauce.
This soup is easy to put together and is packed with hearty and comforting flavours. Don’t be deceived by the strange purple colour, this is the soup I crave when I’m feeling under the weather. Mine may have (accidentally) turned purple. I didn’t think that through when adding purple carrots, but if you stick to orange carrots you can avoid this. Maybe I just need to see the positive… purple foods = anthocyanins = good for you.
Vibrant jewel like treasures to brighten up your winter. I have to admit, I haven’t always been a fan of beets. I used to think they tasted like dirt (they kind of do), but over the years I’ve learned to love them. When you let them ferment, they retain their crunchy texture and develop a delicious tangy flavour (i.e. they no longer taste like dirt).
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.
These oven baked salmon cakes are easy to make, nutrient dense and packed full of flavour. Dairy and gluten free, with fresh herbs, rich squash and omega packed salmon all topped off with a maple sweetened teriyaki sauce.
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.
