Sun Dried Tomato Carbonara

Happy April! Also Happy Easter and belated Passover to all those who celebrate/celebrated! There are so many celebrations today. I took last week off to enjoy Passover with my family and give myself a chance to relax a bit. But I am back and I have lots of good content that I will be posting…

Winter Veggie Slaw

Happy Monday! I can’t believe March is already half over. I’m here with another recipe from the Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. This is the Winter Veggie Slaw with Caramelized Shallot Dressing. The coleslaw mix was supposed to be a combination of green and red cabbages, fennel and carrot. I made a few changes. I omitted…

Cream Cheese Alfredo

In keeping with the healthy-eating theme from my last post (Chipotle Caesar Salad), here is another lighter version of a classic. I made alfredo pasta, but you won’t find any heavy cream or butter here. You can happily eat a bowl of this alfredo without feeling heavy or weighed down. Scroll down to see the…

Cauliflower Gnocchi

Before I get into this delicious recipe, I wanted to say that this is going to be my last post of the year. I will be taking the next two weeks off from posting, just to spend time with my family and relax at home. But I am always cooking up new things and I…

Veggie BLT Sandwich

You already know that I enjoy sandwiches. I posted the crispy tofu sandwich last week (link here) and I’m about to share another delicious one with you. Here I’ve made a BLT. Obviously I didn’t use real bacon because I don’t eat pork but I found these veggie bacon strips (brand: Yves Veggie Cuisine) at…

Lentil Taco Salad

I’m all about eating non-boring salads. One great way to ensure a good salad is by filling it with lots of ingredients, so obviously you need to have more than just lettuce. Mexican food is one of my favourite cuisines to cook, but sometimes I don’t want to eat something heavy like a burrito. So…

Crispy Baked Tofu

If you’re someone who’s trying to eat more vegetable proteins, tofu is a very versatile ingredient to start with. I have made countless tofu recipes on my blog, you can check them out here –> tofu recipes. Today, I made yet another recipe, a much simpler one. This is from Gimme Some Oven (link here)….

Meatless Sloppy Joes

Happy Monday! Wow it’s the last week of April. Does anyone else feel like this month has just flown by? March felt like a whole year but April was so quick. Weird. Anyway, I hope you’re doing well and keeping safe at home. We will get through this, but we need to keep following the…

Black Bean Burgers

For the finale of bean week, I made some burgers! I tried making a veggie burger a while ago, using chickpeas (link here) but they were too crumbly and fell apart when I cooked them. So going into this recipe, I was hoping these burgers with black beans turned out better. I used this recipe…
