This is what we had on Saturday night. I wanted to share with you a fairly typical meal that is not only plant-based, high fibre and high protein, but also very budget-friendly. It's an easily adaptable recipe, which generally uses vegetables that we have on...

As many of  you know, we have been in the process of moving, moving, moving. In our packing, I discovered cans of kidney beans, black beans and diced tomatoes...

Fall is here, which means more soup! Nothing beats soup for providing comfort on a cold autumn day. This recipe was inspired by a suggestion made by Karen and influenced by what I had on hand. Everything is local, which makes such economical sense, not...

This recipe is courtesy of Doug for generously gifting us with a bounty of apples, and Janet and Ruth Ann for their helpful suggestions of how they make applesauce. This recipe is ridiculously easy, needing only two ingredients and a slow cooker (or instant pot). We...

The other day, I was craving something sweet, but not too sweet, with a little satisfying crunch. I appreciate snacks like granola, but most commercial products come with heaps of sugar and are quite expensive per serving. I like to make my own mixtures because...

Robb has been enjoying the book Born To Run, and there are frequent references to the power seed Chia! I have been a long time fan of chia and frequently add it to smoothies, use it to make "vegan eggs", and make chia pudding. I haven't,...

For you ice cream lovers out there, you won't believe how easy and delicious this is! It only has 3 ingredients and it's dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, caffeine-free, AND it doesn't have those nasty stabilizers and foaming agents found in most commercial frozen treats. After recently indulging...

There are many things to love about summer, and close to the top of the list for me are juicy beefsteak tomatoes and fragrant basil - heavenly! This salad is a breeze to make and quite pretty - it's great for entertaining. The richness of avocado...

You may already be familiar with the exceptional health benefits of turmeric, especially its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. However, if you're anything like me, and have used fresh turmeric root, you've ended up with incredibly yellowed fingernails. That stuff stains! Isn't nature so interesting? Natural...

I have people to thank for this recipe. First, I was inspired by a recipe Tara O'Brady posted in last Saturday's Globe and Mail. I loved the idea of roasted sweet potato, kale and feta. I wanted to make it less of a salad and...
