DIY Coconut Butter

As I was strolling through the grocery store, I was taken aback at how expensice coconut butter was. Not even organic types were over $12 for less than 400ml. Since I started using it, I always made it myself because it's both incredibly easy and inexpensive to make, plus it only take about 20 minutes from start to finish. 

Tofu Mayo

I used to be a mayonnaise addict. As in I would put it on almost everything. Once I went vegan, I actually started making my own with the whole olive oil emulsification deal. That was okay for awhile, until I started noticing that the oils weren't as healthy as I thought and I banished it completely from my diet. 

Roasted Onion Hummus

I've had a rather eventful last few days, what with having a very long transit time from Costa Rica back to Ottawa. We're slowly getting settled into our new place but so far it's really going to work out for us. It's a bit of an adjustment being back, going 5 months in a completely different way of living really gives you a new perspective on the way that you've lived your whole life.

Baked Falafels

This months has passed in a crazy fast whirlwind of busyness. Although I haven't been blogging much due to some complicated internet issues, I have been working hardcore behind the scenes to get a few things complete for the next step of Plates for Plants

Roasted Tomato Salsa

Experiencing the rainy season here is interesting. Some days it threatens to rain all day, but not a drop. Other days it's bright and sunny in the morning, then turns dark and gloomy pretty quick. Today is one of those days. Planning hikes and fruitlucks isn't obvious at this point, but we are risking a beach day on Saturday to hangout with a few fruities in the area. I'm crossing my fingers that it'll be sunny!
