2018 Vancouver Veg Expo Haul

As I mentioned in my last post about Kip Andersen at the Vancouver Veg Expo, I am sharing all the lovely goodies we splurged on last weekend at the 2018 Vancouver Veg Expo!  If you want to check out what we bought last year, click here.  I won’t be writing full reviews on all of the…

Banana Brownie Cake with Chocolate Coconut Glaze

It’s been a while since I’ve baked anything because it’s been pretty hot out, so I didn’t want to use the oven.  We have a few days of rain ahead of us, and cooler weather, so I decided to take advantage and indulge my sweet tooth.  I was craving some chocolate and I had a…

Happy Pear’s Bounty Chocolates (V/GF)

 I decided to try Vegan Bounty Bars from the Happy Pear.  I highly recommend checking out their Youtube channel for fantastic, quick vegan recipes.  These chocolates are super decadent and are great for hot summer days when you want a sweet treat.  I made these in the evening when it had already cooled off, as you…

Deluxe Tom Kha Gai (V/GF)

Tom Kha Gai is pretty much my go-to at any Thai restaurant.  The creamy coconut milk broth, mixed with the enticing flavour of lemongrass, red chilis and galangal are at once comforting and refreshing.  In my version here, I subbed in ginger because I couldn’t find galangal, and used pureed basil instead of fresh because…

Easy Slow Cooker Lentil Soup (V/GF)

Now that it’s finally getting hot outside, the last thing I want to do is heat up the kitchen by turning on the stove or the oven. In comes the slow cooker. This soup is great for anyone who is on-the-go and who doesn’t want to spend a tonne of time prepping and cooking in…

Blueberry Chai Pancakes

Ever since James came up with the idea for Blueberry Chai Porridge, I’ve been pretty into that flavour combination.  I decided to try adding it to my regular pancake batter; a nice way to jazz up our regular Sunday morning pancakes, which have become somewhat of a tradition in the last little while.  Pancakes have…

Chewy Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies (V&GF)

My week wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t bake some chocolate chip cookies. This recipe is pretty much a combination of the Almondy-Chocolate Chip Cookies and the Quick and Easy Wholewheat Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies. If it wasn’t entirely obvious already, James and I have a penchant for chocolate chip cookies. Prep time: 15 mins Bake time:…

Double Chocolate Banana Bread (V&GF)

This recipe was a bit of an experiment (that turned out well fortunately). I wanted to make banana bread because I had a bunch of bananas that were getting pretty spotty but I didn’t want just your run of the mill banana bread, I wanted something a little more decadent.  Now granted, this recipe may…

“Oh She Glows” Enchiladas

This is another one of my absolute favourite recipes from the “Oh She Glows” cookbook by Angela Liddon.  This is my loose version of it – I’ve been making for over a year now, so I don’t really follow the recipe to a T.  Here’s a link to her recipe on her blog: Vegan Enchiladas with…
