Recipe #3: Coconut Fried Rice with Edamame

I am closing this week with some delicious fried rice. I mean, the other recipes this week (peanut soup and popcorn) were good too, don’t get me wrong. I’m happy I had 3 successes. I mean, I really don’t think any recipe from this book will be bad, everything looks and sounds amazing so I’m…

Tofu with Broccoli Cauliflower Rice

I know most of my posts are super healthy and colourful, and that’s because I do my best to always eat well. But this past weekend was a long weekend in Canada and I endulged myself. I am not saying it is bad to treat yourself, but just make sure it doesn’t happen all the…

Sesame Edamame Salad

Watch out, here’s another salad post. I’ve been making so many salads recently, they’re just so fresh and summery and I love it. Anyways, this salad recipe is not mine, I found it online (recipe here). I made sushi for dinner and wanted a nice side to go with it. When I go out for…

Sesame-Soy Tofu Bowl

I’m always looking for ways to make tofu taste good and I think I did it with this meal. Tofu is basically a sponge so it will soak up whatever flavours you put on it, but giving it nice texture will take it up a notch. When buying tofu for a stirfry or noodle bowl,…

Peanut Ramen

I’ve made noodles with peanut sauce so many times for one simple reason – it’s delicious. And super easy. Okay, so maybe it’s two reasons. I made this the other night and it looked too good not to post about. I started with making the sauce in a bowl – natural peanut butter mixed with…

Asian Tofu and Cabbage Bowl

When I started making dishes with cold tofu, I was pretty much doing it because I didn’t want to cook anything. But now, I’m doing it because I really like how it tastes. So today, for my bowl, I started with some shredded cabbage and almost made an asianΒ hoisin coleslaw with it. I made a…

Veggie Stirfry with Tofu

It was a hot and cold thing going on with this lunch. I had a hot stirfry with bokchoy and leftover roasted asparagus and squash. Then I had a cold tofu that I just cut up into small cubes and pressed for a couple minutes. I seasoned both components with just teriyaki sauce and sriracha,…

Sweets and Beets Bowl

I love fall. I love root vegetables. And roasting them is the best. We went to the farmer’s market last weekend and picked up some pretty beets – golden and candy cane. I roasted them up with some sweet potato with oil, salt and pepper. Even though the pieces were kinda small, they did take…

Vegan Shepherds Pie

Fall is a time to make delicious meals that really warm your heart – this was one of them. I made a fantastic shepherds pie, using veggie ground meat and leftover mashed potatoes. The “meat” filling is started with sauteed onions and carrots, then I added a bit of ketchup for some tomato-y-ness. Then I…

Lettuce Boats with Chickpea Salad

If you want a filling and satisfying meal with none of the guilt, lettuce boats are a perfect way to go.  I made a “meat” filling with some soy meat, chopped water chestnuts and soy, sriracha, honey and a splash of water – cooked all that together. On top of that, I made a little…
