Vegan Fried Chicken

This recipe is perfect for people just transitioning to vegan/vegetarian, or trying to get someone to eat a vegan meal!! The texture is so similar to chicken you won’t be able to tell the difference. Fried in oil definitely gives it a better taste, however a healthier option would be to bake in the oven!Continue reading “Vegan Fried Chicken”

Grilled Portabello Steaks

Another summer barbecue recipe coming at you!! These mushrooms are super tender and rich in flavour. They’re meaty, juicy, savoury.. you won’t even realize you’re eating a mushroom!

Mushroom Cauliflower Rice Risotto

Risotto is always my go to comfort food… So creamy and warm, and it’s easy to get creative with. However, this dish isn’t your typical comforting risotto because of its lighter consistency. It still has the traditional cooking technique but 10x healthier and just as delicious! The cauliflower is a great source of fibre, vitaminContinue reading “Mushroom Cauliflower Rice Risotto”

This pizza tastes exactly like a regular (flat bread) pizza. The cauliflower adds a little crunch but it makes itContinue reading “Cauliflower Crust Pizza”
