Caramelized Fennel Tart

Going into this recipe, I wasn’t totally sure how I was feeling about it. On one hand, I love puff pastry and everything that I’ve made with it – both sweet and savoury. Some of my faves are: Cheese & Onion Pinwheeels and Pigs in a Blanket. But on the other hand, I don’t love…

Nashville Hot Shroom Sammie

So my last post, the pesto pasta salad (link here) was a perfect recipe for a hot summer day. Today’s recipe however, is definitely one for hot food lovers. This is supposed to be a Nashville hot shroom sammie, as in mushroom, but I had to make some adjustments because I am not a fungus…

Basil Pesto Summer Pasta Salad

The first day of summer is tomorrow so the timing of this pasta salad is perfect. Pasta salad in general is just one of those classic summer dishes. It is so great for BBQs or even just weekly meal prep. This recipe specifically though, is so packed with goodness. There are lots of fresh and…

Orange Peel Cauliflower

I was very excited about this recipe. You know I love battered and baked cauliflower. I’ve made different variations countless times (Buffalo Cauliflower, Maple & Sriracha Cauliflower, General Tso Cauliflower). All of those recipes were so delicious and you should definitely check those out! But today’s cauliflower is coated in a sweet and sticky orange…

Beeteroni Pizza

The past couple of Brave New Meal recipes have been pretty laid back and relaxing. But the recipes that are coming up are definitely going to get more intensive. This is Beeteroni Pizza and there were many different components, each with their own recipes. So it is a vegan pizza with beet “pepperoni” on top….

Broccoli Rabe Pasta

I don’t think I could ever get sick of pasta dishes. There are so many posts about pasta on my blog, the variety is almost endless. You can check them out here (pasta recipes). Today’s pasta is definitely one of the easier ones you could make. It is just broccoli rabe (but I used broccoli),…

Pear, Tempeh & Arugula Sandwich

I love a good sandwich so I’m pretty happy that this recipe is ending the week. This is no boring sandwich, there are lots of different components that all come together to make each bite full of flavour and texture. By the title of the recipe, you know a few of the components but let’s…

Baked Leeks and Parsnips

Today’s recipe is quite a simple side dish. These are easy, baked leeks and parsnips. I have never really eaten leeks much, aside from in soups (like potato & leek) but I have never thought to roast them. And I love parsnips so I knew they would be good here. They are flavoured with garlic,…

Pineapple Fried Rice

It is Monday and I can’t believe it’s already the second week of June! 2022 has just been flying by and it’s been a pretty great year so far but I still can’t believe how fast it’s going. Something else that is flying by, is the recipes in this Brave New Meal cookbook. I believe…

Pan Seared Okra with Lime

I’m ending the week with another okra recipe. It’s funny that this cookbook has two recipes with the same main ingredient right after each other but it lends to good comparisons. As you saw in my last post (Oklahoma Style Fried Okra), I had okra coated in flour/cornmeal and fried. Today’s okra was quite different….
