Recipe #68: Roasted Salsa Verde

I am always down for trying new things and I was excited for some salsa verde (green salsa). I’ve never had salsa verde or even had a tomatillo before, so this was going to be fun. The recipe was super easy. You just have to broil the tomatillos (and jalapeno, if using – I wanted…

Recipe #67: Zesty Black Bean & Corn Salad in Lettuce Cups

I’m a fan of nice bean salad. It needs to have lots of bright flavours and textures or else it can be a little boring. There was nothing boring about this salad. It was super fresh with the cilantro and zippy with the lime juice. It also had lots of texture from the radish and…

New York City: Sweet & Savoury Foods

Happy tuesday! It was a holiday long weekend where I live (and in most other Canadian provinces) and I went on a little trip with my family. We went to new york city. I hadn’t been there since 2012 so I was excited to again, now that I was a little older. We were pretty…

Recipe #66: Roasted Cherry Tomato & Brown Rice Risotto

Risotto. It’s one of those things that seems so difficult to make because it is so labour intensive. However, this recipe proves otherwise. This risotto recipe actually starts on the stove then gets baked in the oven. I know it’s not traditional but it turned out sort of well for me. I still would like…

Recipe #65: Green Goddess Kale Salad

Kale has come from being a little garnish on plates to now the star of the dish. It is honestly one of my favourite greens (and even one of my favourite veggies). It’s so versatile – can use it in smoothies, soups, stews, and of course salads. I’ve made a couple different kale salad recipes…

Recipe #64: Banana Nut Bread

Boy, do I love banana bread, especially when it has lots of chopped nuts. It is the perfect breakfast or snack. It’s also great to make it with overripe bananas because they’ll add so much sweetness, and you could probably cut down the amount of added sugar. These are also very nutritious because they contain…

Recipe #63: Strawberry Balsamic Ice Cream Sundaes

I am finishing the week off with a nice dessert that you can serve this weekend. Regular ice cream is good on its own, but turning it into a sundae with a delicious strawberry sauce plus toppings is the way I’d rather go. This sauce was simple to make and even though it was cooked,…

Recipe #62: Colourful Weeknight Burrito Bowls

Yesterday’s chai latte (link here) may not have been the biggest success for me, but this burrito bowl was another story. A big bowl of cilantro lime rice with colourful bean and cabbage slaw plus guacamole and cheese. Yes. Please. Each component of these bowls was flavoured so well that it all tasted good in…

Chipotle Buddha Bowl

I love when I cook up a couple ingredients and it comes together to make a delicious meal. That’s what happened with this bowl. It was a simple dish with lots of veggies and very filling. It was vegetarian but you could add roasted chicken or beef too. You could add tofu or edamame for…
