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.
If you're like me, your life, especially in the summer is chaos. I feel like I'm non-stop and constantly on-the-go. Eating a healthy plant-based diet is always a priority of mine but sometimes you just don't have hours to spend in the kitchen and sit down to eat dinner or lunch. That's why I live for simple recipes like this couscous salad that allow me to get the nutrients I need to fuel me throughout my day, but also isn't going to take an arm and a leg to make on a busy day. Plus, it keeps great in the fridge for meal prep!
Summer is here and this beautiful salad is perfect for a meal on its own, or as a side dish to add some colour to your plate. What's extra special about this salad is that it's jam packed with nutrients from ginger and turmeric tea. Yes, you heard me correctly, I used tea to create this masterpiece of a salad.
If you've been paying attention to me in anyway over the last few months, you'll know that I had been working so hard on putting together my cookbook, Mindful Vegan Meals, just for you, and just last week it finally launched! I can't even begin to explain how overwhelmed I've been lately from all your love and support, combined with my nervousness of you holding my book in your hands in your kitchens across the country.
Holy meatballs! I mean, veggie balls! This recipe isn't your traditional meatball because it's completely plant-based and perfect for any vegetarian or vegan in your family. However, you may just be able to trick those meat-lovers in your family with these as well.
It's summer and that means it's time to fill your diet with so many yummy and refreshing salads that are loaded with organic (and healthy) foods that will make your soul happy. So, in the spirit of trying new foods this summer, I was inspired to use a special ingredient that's often overlooked, California prunes.
