Spring is here and in Canada this means a fresh harvest of plantiful goodies are upon us! Asparagus is one of my most favourite spring time treats. In this recipe it is simply roasted and placed atop this delicious stuffed pepper and quinoa. The fresh herb gremolata-style sauce ties all the flavours together is also a celebration of spring. Fresh, light and delicious, you may want to double the recipe to have it on hand for plenty of leftovers.Continue reading “Asparagus, Stuffed Peppers and Herbed Quinoa Bowl”
The recipe title says it all. This alternative to Mac n’ Cheese is comfort food at it’s best. It’s creamy and cheesy but also has more health-promoting ingredients than the traditional dish.

This dairy-free, gluten-free, low-carb, vegan dish will have you forgetting about all those labels. All you will think about as you eat it is “mmmmmm”.

Green beans are a popular vegetable around our dinner table. Generally I serve them steamed with a sprinkling of himalayan salt and cracked black pepper. But this salad is worth veering off the course of tried and true.
Veggie burgers are not only a summer staple around our house, but year round. This easy everyday veggie burger is my go-to one that I serve as a traditional burger, as a stand alone patty, crumbled in a salad for lunch the next day, and even baked in mini-cupcake tins for kid-appeal.
Summer barbeque season is in full swing and one of my favourite quick and easy veggie burgers is the oh so simple portobello mushroom burger. Portobello mushrooms have hearty texture and mild in flavour. They absorb flavours, such as marinade and stand up well to grilling.
