We’re in the middle of asparagus season so it’s about time we created a recipe to shine some light on this delicious veggie. There different types of asparagus, but for this recipe we’re using the green ones. Did you know that they’re actually the same. White asparagus are covered so they won’t produce any chlorophyll, which is what turns them green.…
Spring might have finally sprung but were not done with our comforting warming foods just yet, and what’s more comforting that some hasselback potatoes with a warming garam masala spiced oil. The combination of the potatoes and spice mix creates a soul full dish which we combined with a creamy zesty sauce filled with cilantro & mint to create a perfect balance.
Not only is this recipe incredibly simple to make, you can easily …
It’s Oktober which means another batch of halloween inspired dishes will be appearing throughout the month, and we’ll be kicking it off with this purple soup. Serve this to your guests during a halloween party, “uhm what is this?” they will probably ask, looking at you like your some kind of witch. The moment they’ll try the soup though, this is when they’ll get it, they’ll be left bewitched.
With Autumn being around the corner it’s time to reintroduce some comforting foods! What am I saying, I’ll have dishes like this in the middle of summer, still they are your best friends during fall and winter. This dish is made for all those beet haters out there, because I’m pretty sure that even you won’t hate this curry! I mean look how comforting this dish is, even teddy is having a moment!
Growing up we used to watch a lot of anime, and as an adult I still love to watch these animated Japanese show. In these anime they present the most delicious and cute looking foods, including these rice balls, which are called onigiri, in the most appetising ways, many times scoffing them down like their the most delicious food on earth. Imagine my curiosity, especially as a foodie, I started craving these anime foods, I simple had to try them!…
You can never have enough bean stew recipes right? They’re not only delicious and combined with rice a perfect protein, but they are also very nice to prep for days ahead! This batch gave me about three big meals, so perfect for those evening when you’re just a bit to tired to cook. Beans and rice are also quite cost-effective meals, just add whatever veggies you prefer and you’ve got yourself a perfect dish!
These type of meals are also great for those people who stress about proteins, just eat some rice and beans.
You can play with this recipe to make it your own, for this batch I used carrots to add a bit of sweetness, but why not try adding (sweet) potatoes, peas, or corn? Maybe you don’t have kidney or black beans on hand, no problem, you can use whatever bean you have on hand or prefer! Cilantro might taste like soup to you, don’t worry you can add whatever herb you like, try adding some parsley or basil. Well you catch the drift right, just have fun with it!
You can use this bowl as a little inspo for how to have to serve this dish, but just adding it over rice (find recipe for unicorn rice here) and maybe some spinach will be good enough for me. You could also eat it with some flatbread or stuff them inside some potatoes if you’re feeling adventurous!
You could even use it as a spread on some hearty flax crackers, there are no rules when it comes to how you have your food, right!?
Beans, oh beans. Beans and stews are some of my favourite foods, always been and always will. Even though I love both, combining the two is where the magic really happens! Look the dish might not look extremely appetising, but the flavour it on point! One of my loved ones called this “prison food”… Well let me tell you this! If they served this in prison, I wouldn’t mind a stay (just kidding, prison sucks). You know sometimes it are the most unattractive dishes that surprise us with their bold and complex flavours, and this dish is definitely one of them! I mean I could try to make it look presentable, but there’s no use, this dish speaks for itself, try it.
This dish is not only extremely delicious, combining it with rice it will serve as a complete protein. So next time people ask you where you get your protein you can simply send them to this post for a yummy protein packed recipe.
As most of my recipe you can totally modify this one to your own taste. You can decide to sprinkle it with some cilantro before serving, or maybe leave out the pepper, it’s all up to you. Also the spinach I added is totally optional, I simply love adding spinach to almost any of my dishes, go ahead and give it your own twist, maybe add some carrots and celery, experiment! And if you don’t like kidney beans, simply swap them for chickpeas, It’s your stew.

If you’d ask me what my most comforting types of dishes are I’d go with soups, curries and casseroles, I’m definitely a savoury type of guy. Since we’re in the middle of the holiday seasons it’s about time we start sharing some delicious comforting dishes to share with the entire family. See this is what’s so amazing about casseroles, they are the perfect dish to share with friend, families or random strangers on the street! I’ll be serving this for my family and friends during christmas, its easy, affordable and of course delicious!
Every time I visit my sister-in-law she always makes the most delicious vegan dishes specially for me, one of my favourite dishes she makes for me is an eggplant dish similar to this from the oven, containing a tomato sauce and fried eggplants. No matter how many different dishes there are I always go for that one first! I love making dishes that spark my memory and this is definitely one, every time I eat it I’ll be reminded of the times I visit my brother and sister-in-law and their loving home.
This casserole is a dish with a layer of sweet potato, chickpeas and baked eggplants topped with a delicious savoury tomato/coconut sauce. Instead of frying the eggplant I decided to bake it first to cut down the oil needed, especially since eggplant acts like a sponge. You can obviously sub certain ingredients if they don’t fit your taste. For example try using regular potatoes instead of sweet or maybe add zucchini and use a different kind of bean instead of chickpeas, there are so many options! If you are HCLF you can even try baking it without oil, I’m not an expert so I don’t know how this will work out, but feel free to let me know!
Since the squash season is almost coming to an end, and the holiday season is right around the corner it’s about time we’d be making some stuffed butternut squash. Stuffed butternut squash is one of the first dishes I ate when deciding to go vegan and since that day it holds had a special place in my
heart stomach. The recipe I made that day is hidden somewhere in my note books, I remember it had the most delicious quinoa filling, but today we’ll be making a chickpea stuffed butternut squash.
From now on we’ll have a new bao bun recipe every month! Let’s call it the Bao Of The Month and let’s make it colourful! I could easily make a sandwich of the month but I definitely prefer steamed buns over sandwiches, they’re like little clouds filled with deliciousness, who doesn’t want to eat clouds? This months bao is a green one, filled with some greens and a chickpea mash spiced with garam masala.
These buns are actually super easy to make, especially since I’ve started using my food processor to make the dough. We only need to rise the dough once, and let the steam do the rest, voila!…
