Sweet Potato Avocado Toast

This is one of the simplest things ever. It’s really not much more than what the title says. It was just toast + avocado + sweet potato + sriracha. That’s it. Such a good meal – breakfast or lunch. It’s creamy and crunchy and sweet and just delicious. I know it might seem like a…

Couscous with Bean Salad and Sweet Potatoes

I may have said this before, but I love meals that are all in one bowl and easy to eat. Tonight’s dinner was just that. I have 3 components here which are pretty easy to see cause I made sure they were all separated in my bowl. The bean salad has a few things… black…

Mixed Salad

I really didn’t know what to call this salad. I used the word mixed because it turned out to be a mix of many different things.  I got iceberg lettuce, cabbage, cucumber, bell pepper, dried cranberries, sliced olives, chickpeas and avocado. The only dressing I put was a little walnut oil, red wine vinegar, salt…

Bean Salad and Veggie Balls

I’ve had both of these things before, but this time it was a little different. Plus I added some avocado cause I’m a little obsessed. I really just love bean salad. This one had black beans, red bell pepper, fresh corn, cucumber, cilantro, lime juice, red wine vinegar, salt, sriracha and sugar. The veggie balls,…

Early Cinco de Mayo Dinner

Making mexican food the day before Cinco de mayo was a great way to show my rebellious side. I was originally going to make chili cheese fries but it ended up just being a bowl of chili with some fries on the side. Now that I think about it, it ended up being pretty much…

Chicken Stirfry

I made dinner with like 10 ingredients. Pretty good, if I do say so myself.  So from the title, you know I made a stirfry. It had leftover rotisserie chicken, peppers, yellow and green onion, ginger, soy sauce, sriracha, honey and sesame oil. I put all that on top of some egg noodles. And sesame…

Gourmet Pizza

I know I have a few pizza posts already, but this is my first one with homemade dough! I got the recipe from the back of the yeast packet and it turned out pretty well. As you can see, there are quite a few toppings here. I got cheese (obviously), pizza sauce, roasted veggies (zucchini,…

Quinoa Salad

I was in the mood for a light dinner, so I made a nice and healthy salad with quinoa. I cooked it up then added some frozen corn and edamame afterwards and thawed them with the residual heat. I let that cool down then added olives and cucumber. I made a little dressing of olive…

Salmon Tacos

Yummy yummy tacos. Soft tacos > hard tacos. This one had salmon which I simply baked in the oven. I have a plain flour tortilla, iceberg lettuce, sriracha, mayo, avocado and mango salsa (mango, cilantro, honey, lime juice, chili flakes, salt). All together, it just works. So many good flavours and it was pretty guilt…

Spicy Tuna + Veggie Sushi

Sushi sushi sushi. I made a lot. I love sushi cause it’s pretty easy to make once you have all the ingredients ready. I made 3 varieties with just different combinations of ingredients. I used red pepper, cucumber, avocado, and spicy tuna (tuna, mayonnaise, sriracha).  It turned out really well and I enjoyed it very…

Falafel Bowl

I made a super awesome dinner that had a complete theme today. It was kind of a big deal. I made these falafels (recipe from minimalistbaker.com) but I baked instead of fried them cause I hate frying. They were softer than they should be but still delicious. To go with them, I made roasted potatoes (olive oil,…

Ethiopian Platter

I obviously did not make this food. I honestly don’t really know what I was eating but it was so good. You basically get this “bread” called injera, you rip a piece off and grab some food with your fingers. You scoop it up and just eat it. No cutlery, no plates. It’s quite different…
