Vegan ‘Crab’ Cakes with Lemon Aioli

Honestly, before making this recipe, I had never tried a crab cake, vegan or not. I had an idea of what they tasted like and wanted another recipe to give to my omnivore friends and family, and this will definitly be added to the pile. Flavourful, moist, and super filling with the artichoke hearts beingContinue reading “Vegan ‘Crab’ Cakes with Lemon Aioli”

Vegan Egg “McMuffins”

  So excited about this recipe! The texture and flavour is exactly what I remember eggs being like. But this time, no cholesterol, saturated fat, and free of animals!!

Margherita Pizza with Cashew Mozzarella

I am so in love with fresh basil in the summer and try to incorporate it into all of my meals. Today, being a Friday, was necessary to make a pizza!

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”

These are best served with roasted root vegetables, basmatiContinue reading “Grilled Portabello Steaks”

Enjoy!!Continue reading “Stuffed Peppers”

Roasted Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup

Food of the Month: Asparagus

Hey guys!! I wrote a little blurb for Toronto Vegetarian Association about seasonal ingredients. For March I decided to choose asparagus as it’s an abundant vegetable that begins its season at the end of February! Eating seasonally and locally is very important to support your community and reduce emissions for transportation of food. I’ve alsoContinue reading “Food of the Month: Asparagus”
