Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

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.

Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers

I'm actually pretty impressed with the smoothness of Vegan MoFo 2014 for me so far. I've been having quite a hectic week what with work, packing, last minute appointements AND getting a cold on top of it.

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili

There comes a time when you have to accept that it is officially winter. Yesterday was that day here in Ottawa. We got about 30 cm of snow overnight, which cast the entire scenery in a cold white glow, which I do admit is quite beautiful to look at from the warmth of the house.It's not that I hate winter. I love the snow, at least in theory. When I'm bundled up and all, it's not so bad. But the cold winds and dirty slush aren't my idea of a good time.I do have ...

Very Veggie Shepherds Pie

I've recently discovered the amazing world of reddit. There is such a massive array of topics on there. As can be expected I went straight for the food. I found a great subreddit called veganrecipes where I occasionally share recipes and find amazing ones as well. I definitely recommend checking it out!Through that group I found out about a subreddit called 52 weeks of vegan food. Of course I was curious and just had to check it out. Basically there will be a theme for every week for the next 52 weeks and people post recipes. Simple, awesome ...
