Peach and Blueberry Crisp

When you have lots of fruit in the house, the best option is to make a crisp (or crumble – what’s the difference between them anyways?) This dessert came together in no time and it couldn’t be simpler. The base is just cut peaches, some pear and lots of blueberries, mixed with a little flour…

Vibrant Pasta Salad

I know I’ve made pasta salad posts before – they’re just so easy and yummy and versatile. This one had corn, red bell pepper, green beans (that I cooked with the pasta when it was almost done), and kalamata olives. The dressing was olive oil, red wine vinegar, spicy mustard, salt, pepper and a bit…

Spiralized Zucchini Salad

I almost forgot that I had a spiralizer cause I haven’t used it in so long. I made a really nice thai dressing to put on my zucchini noodles. It had peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, ground ginger powder, lime juice and sriracha. I added some carrot slices for extra crunch, but also some…

Mexican Chicken and Veggie Bowl

Chicken. Veggies. Avocado. That’s basically it. There’s a little base of shredded romaine lettuce in the bottom of the bowl. On top, there is are three sections: a bean, pepper and corn mixture, some avocado, and some cooked chicken breast. Really basic ingredients that are super healthy and high in protein with the chicken and…

Lettuce Boats with Chickpea Salad

If you want a filling and satisfying meal with none of the guilt, lettuce boats are a perfect way to go.  I made a “meat” filling with some soy meat, chopped water chestnuts and soy, sriracha, honey and a splash of water – cooked all that together. On top of that, I made a little…

Asian Chicken Meatballs, Roasted Veggies and Salad

I haven’t made a full meal like this in a long time. The main protein was these chicken meatballs which turned out really well. The actual meal mixture was just ground chicken, an egg, panko bread crumbs, grated ginger and sriracha. I made meatballs and baked them for about 15 minutes. After that, I brushed…

Black Bean Patties

Hello! It’s been a really long time since I’ve made a post. I was away on vacation then I was a little under the weather, but now I’m back in the kitchen!  I made these black bean patties which turned out really well. They’re super easy and delicious. So you start by mashing a can…

Peanut Tofu Bowl with Carrots and Couscous

I just submitted my last assignment for my university undergrad so I am unofficially done school (yay!). I decided to treat myself to a nice hot lunch. I had made this awesome peanut butter sauce that I was gonna use for coleslaw the other day but that never happened so I used it today instead….

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…

Cheeseless Mac n Cheese

So when I thought of making this dish, I knew it would either turn out really well or be a total flop. Obviously I was hoping for the former. And lucky for me, it was a success! I’ve seen cheeseless mac n cheese recipes before but they all have nutritional yeast – I was looking…

Indian Turkey Curry

So this was a very impromptu meal. It started off as cooked turkey breastfeeding that was a little bit dry. Instead of eating it as is, I turned it into an indian curry.  I started off by sautéing onions, carrots and peppers in a big pot. Then I added a few cups of chicken stock…

Fish Filet Sandwich

If you ever had a fish filet sandwich, especially from places like mcdonalds, you know they can be good. But you sometimes feel gross after – cause they tend to be greasy and not very healthy.  I made a better version tonight for dinner. I have a simple breaded filet that I baked in the…
