Cozy Autumn Vegetarian Pot Pie

“There is nothing better on a cold wintry day than a properly made pot pie.” It’s been very grey and rainy for the past two days. I find it hard to wake up in the morning when it’s so dark. Don’t get me wrong, I love this time of year on the coast; the mist carried…

Udon Noodles in Home Made Broth (Vegan)

We love noodles at home especially when it’s cold outside. Savoury broth and soft noodles to slurp up is what this dish is about. Cooking from scratch is a norm in my kitchen and this broth is easy and filled with flavour. You Will Need: 2 teaspoons Coconut Oil 4 teaspoons Sesame Oil 1 medium onion , chopped…

Cabin Lentil Stew on Coconut Mash (Vegan)

*Note: I wrote this blog 2 days before heading up to the cabin thinking I’d finish photographing and editing it when we got home. Sadly the trip was cancelled. I thought of re-writing the entire blog but decided against it. I defrosted half of the stew for dinner tonight and made the mash so that…

Teriyaki Eggplant On Steamed Japanese Rice (Vegan)

“Veganism is not a sacrifice. It is a joy.” Today I ventured far from my comfort zone with this recipe.  I’ve been wanting to incorporate new veggies into my vegan kitchen and Eggplant is one of those things I usually just pass in the produce isle. It’s not easy to find a lot of interesting…

High (Vegan) Protein Lettuce Wraps

Most of today was overcast and cool. I shopped in the village happy there were no line-ups at the grocery store;  in and out in 20 minutes.  It rained lightly through the afternoon then the sun appeared while I prepped dinner and enjoyed a Pineapple Moscow Mule my husband made me.  It’s always cocktail hour somewhere…

Moroccan Lentil “Lamb Pops” With Couscous Salad (Vegan)

  “We travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us.”  I’m in the kitchen when the 7pm cheering starts.  We honour and thank our healthcare and front line workers everyday.  First the horns sound off from Canada Place and then the city echoes with the sound of pots and pans, whistles, claps and…

Make Ahead Vegan Breakfast Burritos

  All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast My husband likes to walk to the coffee shop in the morning to get some fresh air and buy a vegan breakfast wrap and tea.  With the majority of businesses now closed in the city I made up a batch of filling for him this afternoon so that…

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup (Vegan).

The greatest dishes are very simple   Cooking has been keeping me occupied while we hunker down at home. Today’s a sunny day although there are some big clouds sweeping over the mountains.  The ground is damp outside, I must have slept through the rain over night. My husband says he wasn’t a fan of…

Broccoli Veggie Stir-Fry With Cashews

Every Thursday I sauna; an hour of seated meditation, drinking litres of electrolytes and lots of sweating.  I love what it does for my skin and mind. It also helps that just 30 minutes burns up to 600 calories so I don’t work out on sauna days and eat as much as I want, bonus!…
