Who doesn't love a good salsa? Especially in the summertime when the tomatoes are fresh and flavourful, and you're outside enjoying the hot weather barbecuing, yum, salsa is the perfect summer snack. Don't you think? This vegan salsa recipe is so easy to whip up and perfect to snack on on your own or bring to your next gathering or pot luck.
This super simple vegan lemony chard and cheesy quinoa recipe is perfect for lunch prep, a side dish, or just an easy recipe to bring to a pot luck or BBQ. The secret that gives the quinoa salad that nutty cheesy taste isn't cheese, because I am vegan after all, it's nutritional yeast. If you've been following me you know how much I love this stuff. For this recipe I used Bob's Red Mill's. The nutritional yeast is mixed with just oil and lemon in the dressing for this salad and provides a ton of added vegan nutrition to the recipe. Bob's Red Mill's nutritional yeast is fortified with B3, B6, B2, B1, B9 (folic acid) and B12. Plus, it's gluten free and a great supplement if you're a vegan or vegetarian.
Can we just talk about how fantastic chia seeds are? First off, they're loaded with nutrients including giber, protein, omega-3s, calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, and the list goes on with the vitamins they're jammed with too. These itty bitty seeds have so much to them. On top of that long list, they also are full of antioxidants, almost all the carbs in them are fiber, they can assist in lowering your risk of heart disease and blood sugar levels, and the best part is that they're vegan and super easy to incorporate into your diet! You can throw them into smoothies or drinks, sprinkle them on your recipes or salads, make chia pudding, and the list goes on.
Pumpkin season is among us, I know, it's sad summer is coming to an end but there's something magical about fall. For this pasta salad I used Bob's Red Mill pumpkin seeds which add a yummy plant-based nutty flavour and crunch to this super simple, versatile and delicious salad recipe.
'Tis the season where the sun is shining and you're constantly looking for something refreshing to drink that isn't always just boring water. I love this recipe because it's plant-based, and it is incredibly easy and colourful to make. You don't even need a juicer to make this, all you need is a blender and a nut milk bag. Plus, I wouldn't give you a recipe that wasn't loaded with health benefits and I think you'll love the flavours of the ingredients and maqui powder in this one!
 I bet you would never imagine you'd see a recipe for how to make chocolate sauce with chickpeas that is healthy and vegan? Well add this sauce to your list of dessert recipes because this might become your new fav. Warning! It's addictive, but disclaimer, it's healthy! Win win.
It's summertime and what better way to celebrate than with soaking up the sun and barbecuing some of your favourite foods? Burgers are the food of the summer, and making a delicious plant-based burger doesn't need to be rocket science. It can be easy, healthy, and instead of the burgers you buy in the freezer aisle, you'll feel confident in what you are putting into your body.
I love this vegan recipe for the summertime, and I know what you're thinking, that pasta isn't necessarily a "summer" food. However, I find this creamy sauce to be perfect for the summertime when you want to get a hearty meal in.
This sauce is seriously the best and it's all thanks to those cashews and Bob's Red Mill's Nutritional Yeast. The combination of the two is one of my favs. I love cooking with cashews and if you've followed me before, you know I add nutritional yeast on everything!
Friends, I have the perfect fun and refreshing vegetarian/vegan recipe for you that is perfect for the summer, especially if you're looking for something quick to whip up for your guests, or if you're heading to a pot luck or BBQ. This appetizer was inspired by one of my favourite types of music to jam out to in the summertime, the ska genre. This is similar to reggae, and has some elements of jazz and even punk rock in it. I find that by combining these unique sounds you get such a cool sound that's perfect to listen to under the sun or at the beach. Similarly, this recipe brings together surprising ingredients for a cohesive creation that I think you'll love.
So I looooooooove cashews! I find they are one of the most versatile nuts out there. From cashew cream, to cheese, to smoothies, and the list goes on. You can do so much with them! This recipe is the perfect healthy snack and I'm so excited to share it with you all because I know you'll love it.
This shot is loaded with anti-inflammatory benefits, filled with enzymes, B vitamins, micronutrients and organic acids. Plus, you can't forget the benefits that come from a dose of turmeric. Botanica Health is one of my favourite companies because they create amazing products, that are certified organic and so good for you. This particular product helps manage inflammation from arthritis or injuries, so it can help you recover quick and get moving again in a healthy way.
Do you ever find in the summer you seem like you're hosting dinner guests and company all the time? I do! I love being a host, but sometimes you just want to be able to whip together something that tastes great, looks impressive, but didn't take you a million hours to prepare. The suns out, I want to be outside, not always in the kitchen! So that's where these little vegan mushroom phyllo bites come in.
