Triple C Salad

Couscous, cucumber and chickpeas. Simple ingredients, delicious combination. I honestly love couscous based salads cause it’s so easy and quick and versatile. So this salad had that delicious c-base, plus a dressing of red wine vinegar, lime juice, oregano, chili flakes and parsley. I didn’t even need salt or pepper this time.  It was so…

Roasted Red Peppers

I’ve wanted to make these for a while but I think I was too scared to try. I’m happy I did it though. And they’re super easy too. If you’ve never roasted peppers before, they’re super easy. You just throw some peppers (whole, with seeds and all) on the grill and let them cook. You…

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,…

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…

Sauteed Kale, Apple and Edamame

This meal actually started out as a salad from last night’s dinner (without the edamame). It was the kale, chopped apple and a simple dressing of olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. There was quite a bit leftover and I didn’t want to eat the exact same thing again. So I just put everything…

Couscous Salad with Beans

I love couscous. This will be my 6th couscous recipe on my blog now. I just had some leftovers in the fridge, so I made a simple, mexican inspired salad. I used blackbeans, edamame, parsley, lime juice, honey, salt and pepper, and sriracha on top. I know it is so easy, but I thought it…

Baked Tofu, Roasted Vegetables and Asian Coleslaw

This dinner started off my having an asian theme but then it kinda turned I guess a little american. Either way, it all tasted pretty good. For the tofu, I just cut one block into thin-ish squares and laid them on paper towel just to dry off a bit. Then I put them on a…

Cauliflower Buffalo Wings

I’ve wanted to make these for a while because I love spicy things and I love wings. I knew these wouldn’t taste like chicken or look like wings but they still turned out quite well. I made this batter with flour, almond milk, salt, pepper and garlic powder. You coat eat piece of cauliflower in…

Californian Bean Salad

This was a super awesome bean salad that I had with dinner last night. The base of the salad is pretty similar to another post that I’ve done before (Mexican Bean Salad), but this one has a few differences. The actual salad has black beans, edamame (which is kind of Asian but whatever), corn and…

Rice with Veggies, Meatballs and Greek Salad

This was a really nice and well-balanced dinner. So the rice was just cooked in vegetable stock, then I added kale and peas for colour (and salt, pepper and chili flakes). The Greek salad was tomato, red pepper, kalamata olives and feta cheese with a simple dressing – red wine vinegar, honey, salt, pepper, oregano….

Chickpea and Carrot Salad with Peanut Dressing

I got this new jar of natural peanut butter (no added oil, salt or sugar) and I was excited to put it in everything I could. There was nothing really special about the peanut butter itself but I like peanut butter so this lunch was an excuse to use it. I first made the dressing…
