This vibrant, vitamin and mineral-rich, dairy-free dessert is packed with nutrients and deliciousness! While it may taste luxurious, it is made from entirely nourishing, wholesome ingredients - without any added refined sugars or oils. Being winter in Canada, we have limited fresh local fruits available - so frozen berries are a flavorful option. Wild blueberries are especially rich in anthocyanin, a potent flavonoid antioxidant - responsible for the dark purple pigment of this fruit. The good unsaturated fats found in cashews, provides a natural thick and creamy texture - creating a cheesecake-like consistency. Adding lemon zest to the crust and topping of this tart, provides a slightly acidic tang - resembling the 'cheese' in standard cheesecake. While this is a healthy dessert recipe, it is still rich, and satisfying! Allowing you to enjoy the eating experience, while still feeling good afterwards!Read More ›
My whole food plant-based version of smoked salmon and cream cheese, featuring carrots and silken tofu! This light and tasty healthy snack, or appetizer provides a balance of fiber-rich complex carbohydrates, plant-based protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It is also simple and easy to prepare! The shaved carrot 'lox' requires a quick marinade, using hickory liquid smoke, fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper. This mixture tenderizes the root vegetable, and provides a smoky, briny flavor. The soft silken tofu is blended in a food processor with 'cheesy' nutritional-yeast, and umami-rich white miso - offering a smooth and savory schmear. Mary's crackers serves as the base of this recipe, made from a handful of wholesome, nutritious ingredients - this is one of the few packaged products I recommend. However, one can also use another whole grain, unrefined cracker or bread instead. Classically paired with 'smoked salmon', the fresh dill is an important component to this recipe (not just garnish), as it brightens the dish and brings all the flavors together!Read More ›
Sweet and sticky dates are nature's ultimate candy! Wonderful on their own, and even more delicious when jazzed up like this. Stuffed with crunchy toasted almonds, dipped in slightly bitter dark chocolate, coated in nutty pistachios, bright orange zest, and sea salt - this plant-based recipe is rich in flavor and nutrients. Naturally 'packaged' in individual-sized portions, these stuffed dates are a small, yet satisfying treat - composed of wholesome ingredients. To me, it is perfectly healthy to enjoy a homemade plant-based dessert like this on occasion - as part of a balanced diet!Read More ›
