This nutritious and delicious no-bake holiday recipe is simple to make with the use of a blender, and a food processor. Essential kitchen tools in my books, that I use in almost all of my recipes. Seeing as I often get asked, the food processor I recommend is the Cuisinart 8-Cup Food Processor, Silver FP-8SVC. […]
This delicious and nutritious salad celebrates the humble, and seasonal Kohlrabi – a versatile vegetable, that is part of the brassica family (along with broccoli, kale, cauliflower etc.). Once peeling the beautiful kohlrabi, please do not toss away the green tops – as they can be chopped up and sautéed, or added to soups/stews – […]
This simple roasted squash and arugula salad is satisfying and nourishing – one of my favourite fall dishes! Offering plenty of flavour, texture and nutrients like vitamins, minerals, fibre, and heart-healthy fats. The key is to season the sliced ‘Delicata’ (or use ‘Sweet Dumpling’ squash! with spices, and roast until tender – bringing out its […]
This creamy, and delicious protein-packed chocolate pudding is fantastic when you want a simple, satisfying healthy dessert. Silken tofu can be easily stored in your pantry, so there is no stress about it going bad. Getting good quality cacao powder makes all the difference in the recipe, as it masks the subtle taste of tofu, while adding most of the flavour to the dessert. Maple syrup is my go-to sweetener, being an unrefined lower-glycemic sweetener that blends beautifully with most ingredients.
This delicious and nutritious dip was inspired by the bounty of beautiful seasonal zucchini. A quick, and simple take on ‘hummus’ that can be enjoyed with veggies as a snack, or as a spread on sandwiches or toast – providing plenty of flavour and nutrition. Feel free to use any varieties of zucchini you can find at the market – or are growing at home!
One of my favourite breakfasts – this simple, nourishing combo is satisfying and energizing. Composed of organic sprouted whole grains bread Manna bread (this is not a sponsored post – I just love the product!), a couple tablespoons of tahini (rich in heart-healthy fats, protein, iron, and calcium!), plus a few slices of fresh apricot […]
A different take on the classic energy bar I typically make, featuring mineral-rich dried figs instead of dates! This recipe also includes pomegranate molasses – adding a bright, slightly tart note. Delicious and nutritionally-balanced, these bars offer whole (unprocessed) plant-based protein from the almonds, and omega-fat rich walnuts. Composed of a few nourishing ingredients, enjoy […]
I used a high-powered Vitamix (for extra creaminess!) but if you don’t have one – opt for a food processor, and scrape down the sides as you mix. Top your edamame hummus with toasted sesame seeds or za’atar (Middle-eastern thyme/sesame spice)! While regular chickpea hummus is always delicious and nutritious, this edamame rendition is a […]
This nutritionally balanced and complete recipe offers fiber-rich carbohydrates, plant-based protein, and heart-healthy unsaturated fats. These bars serve as a sweet snack, pre or post-workout bite, or healthy dessert! Making our own nourishing and delicious bars, using whole (unprocessed) ingredients, is a simple, and healthy choice compared to store-bought bars – which are often high […]
Inspired by one of my favourite Thai desserts, ‘mango sticky rice’, this recipe uses black rice aka ‘forbidden rice ‘- which offers more nutrition than white rice. It also has a delicious nutty flavour, and beautiful dark pigment – due to the presence of anthocyanin antioxidant (also found in blueberries!). Black rice provides protein, fiber, […]
