Kale and Broccoli Quiche

Wasn’t really sure what to make for breakfast this morning, but this was awesome – and it’s much better than normal scrambled eggs. Side note: what’s the difference between quiche and frittata? I think they’re similar, but I know they are both delicious. First, you just sautee whatever vegetables you like (I did onion, kale…

Curried Couscous Salad

Found this recipe online for curried couscous salad (on daringgourmet.com) and I thought it sounded really good – and spoiler alert, it tasted good too! I love how yellow and vibrant it was. I basically followed the recipe as written, but I used 1.5 cups of couscous, added chopped bell pepper, and omitted the celery and raisins….

Bowl of Green Goodness

I made a super healthy and very green lunch today. I kinda just had these things on hand and wanted to use them up. It’s basically just sauteed zucchini, kale and edamame, with soy sauce, sriracha and ground ginger. Super easy and you can totally use whatever vegetables you’d like. You can also add chicken, beef,…

Not-so-Traditional Greek Salad

I made this awesome greek salad to go with dinner tonight. There were lots of things on top of the lettuce, some of which wouldn’t usually go in a Greek salad: Cucumber Bell pepper Tomato Chickpeas Feta cheese Peppadew peppers (if you haven’t had these before, I strongly recommend them – they’re slightly spicy but…

Roasted Chicken with Sides

Dinner last night was a really nice meal, I was impressed with how it turned out. It was very nice, mexican inspired. There were 5 components to my plate: Roasted chicken – nothing fancy about that Rice and beans – sautéed some onion, added the rice and soup, let it cook. When it was done,…

Scramble with Sautéed Veggies

I realised I don’t have many breakfast posts, so here is a super easy one. I made sautéed zucchini, carrots and kale, seasoned with just salt and pepper. I put that in my bowl, then I scrambled some egg whites and melted in a little cheese. I put that on top and gave a little…

Veggie Peanut Salad

I haven’t been eating the best recently so I tried to get back on track with lots of veggies. I made this salad with shredded zucchini and carrot, diced red pepper and edamame. The dressing is peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, lime juice and sriracha. Two notes when making zucchini salads: squeeze out as much…

Spaghetti and “Meat” Sauce

It’s been a while since I’ve had a nice bowl of pasta and tomato sauce. This one was super simple which was awesome. I sautéed some onions and peppers then mixed in a package of veggie meat (soymeat) and let that heat up a bit. Then I just added some good tomato sauce and warmed…

Mexican Bean Salad

To go with dinner tonight, I made this awesome bean salad. It started off with pretty traditional mexican ingredients, but then I took a little turn to make it my own.  The salad is made of black beans, corn, bell peppers, edamame, red onion and parsley (normally, it would be cilantro in this kind of…

Mediterranean Couscous

Sticking with my green and orange,  made this awesome and simple couscous dish for lunch. I started by just cooking some couscous in a pot. In another pot, I sauteed some kale to wilt it down, then added chopped carrots and chickpeas. I also added sliced olives for saltiness, a little olive oil and spices…

Green Almond Milk Curry

It’s January 3rd and this is already my 4th post of the year. This is a really good start and hopefully I can keep it up once I go back to school. So I was trying to get creative in the kitchen. Since it was a rainy and depressing day, I wanted something that would warm…

Green and Orange Wrap

I’m trying out this new challenge for the month, where you have to eat green and orange foods every day. So today, I made a tortilla wrap with hummus, iceberg lettuce, cucumber, mango and carrots. I also cut up a kiwi for extra goodness. You could eat the tortilla just as a wrap but I…
