There are times where there is nothing more satisfying that a big creamy filling and warming bowl of decadent soup. Presonally I prefer belnded soups, homogenous wonderful bowls full of flavor and a creamy texture that tastes like pure comfort. I will give a chunky hearty soup a try now and again, they definitely do have their place. As a vegan, coconut milk is the queen of fatty creamy substances to use, at least it is for me! So in this recipe I opted for butternut squash, carrot and coconut milk to bring together the BEST soup I have ever ...
Lasagna has always been one of my favorite meals. Ooey gooey layers of sauces, noodles cooked to perfection and the crispier corner pieces were always a cause for excitement. Now I've made the perfect vegan, gluten free and low fat lasagna that I just keep coming back to, even when I tell myself I'll try a new recipe this time when I buy the noodles.
For months and months, I've heard my partner (who is very much vegan) talk about this weird craving he had for tuna. While this is a totally normal occurence when one has changed their diet and lifestyle from foods they've eaten their entire lives, there are several ways to deal with it. One is to just ignore until it leaves which is does eventually, or make a substitute using whole foods like my chickpea tuno salad. The last is to discover products from compassionate business like Sophie's Kitchen who make alternatives that are cruelty free and vegan.
Spring is definitely in the air now, at least here in Vancouver it is! All the flowers are blooming and the air and sun are warm during the day and satisfyingly chilly at night. This means that casseroles and hearty dishes like this Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie are still very very welcome in the cool evenings. This dish is a delightful twist on the classic I grew up eating. Although it had very different ingredients, this still reminds me of evening with my family as a kid.
How time flies! I haven't posted in awhile, mostly due to the increased efforts I've been putting towards the launch of a personal chef service here in Vancouver. I'm getting SO close to being totally ready and I'm excited (and scared) beyond anything to be doing this. I have a few cooking classes ready to be advertized and will be making annoucements soon as to a schedule and all that. Personal Chef services are up and running, you can check out the services page for more information.
