Shredded Daikon Salad

Happy Monday everyone! Just starting the week similar to how I ended last week – with a nice simple salad. Check out my last post if you haven’t seen it already – Smashed Cucumber Salad. Just like the cucumber salad of my last post, this is a very simple, quick pickled vegetable salad, but this…

Smashed Cucumber Salad

I’m ending the week with this super simple cucumber salad! This is a smashed cucumber salad which makes it very rustic and fun! I have seen recipes for this kind of salad online so I was very excited that this book had one. Aside from the cucumbers there really aren’t that many other ingredients that…

Southwestern Slaw

The next recipe in this cookbook is this delicious and colourful coleslaw. It is southwestern themed and it is very bright and fresh! This reminds me of a recipe from Thug Kitchen 101 called Southwestern Pasta Salad – the dressing and some of the salad ingredients were similar. Also a very good recipe! There are…

Smoky Cabbage and Tomato Stew with Tortellini

Happy March 14 (aka Pi day). Normally, this day is meant to be celebrated with a slice of something like pizza or pie. But this year, even though it is not following the trend at all, I’m celebrating with some hot soup! This was a very chunky and hearty cabbage, tomato, and other vegetable soup…

Shaved Asparagus & Chive Salad

Here we are, we have made it to the second section of the Brave New Meal cookbook: Soups and Salads! First, is this asparagus and chive salad. This is a very simple salad with greens, asparagus, chives and toasted almonds. Before this, I had never tried raw asparagus and I wasn’t even sure it could…

Brussels Sprout Hash

I’ve never bought Brussels sprouts before because they just seem extra hard to clean well. They also seem to have quite a bad reputation for some reason. I love cabbage so I don’t know why I never made the leap to these babies. Anyways, I’m giving them a shot today with this Brussels Sprout Hash…

Cowboy Scramble

Continuing right along with breakfast recipes, we have made it to the second last one of the section in the Brave New Meal cookbook. This recipe is called the cowboy scramble. There are a lot of components that go into this scramble. There are potatoes, a variety of vegetables, tofu (to replace eggs), and there…

Pumpkin Scones

I know it’s the middle of February, but there’s nothing wrong with baking with fall flavours! These are Pumpkin Scones. I mean, I didn’t choose this recipe, I’m just continuing along in the Brave New Meal cookbook. But I love pumpkin and fall spices so I have no complaints here. Right off the bat, I…

Whatever Grain Porridge

Like I mentioned in my last post (Blackberry Sage Oat Bars) I love everything to do with oats and oatmeal. So this recipe, being a porridge with oats, along with other grains, was exciting to me. Right off the bat though, this reminded me of the recipe I made back in the Yum & Yummer…

Blackberry Sage Oat Bars

You already know I love oats and oatmeal so making oat-based bars is also right up my alley. These are the Blackberry Sage Oat Bars from the Brave New Meal cookbook. Right off the bat, I could see this recipe is similar to the blueberry thyme preserves from a few recipes back, where it has…
