Quick Chickpea or Raw Sunflower Vegan "Tuna" Salad!

If you thought I didn’t have some sort of pop culture reference to go with everything I do, you’d be wrong.  Last week, I whipped up a little chickpea tuna salad, and thought of this guy: So, I’m not an alien robot sidekick in a…

Camros Organic Eatery

Sometimes an empty plate says it all.  I’ve been wanting to try Camros Organic Eatery in Toronto for ages now, but rarely find myself around Yonge & Bloor, and definitely not when I’m hungry.  Yesterday, some friends and I finally made a point of grabbing…

Cheesy Greens & Beans!

One of the things I love most about the food blog world is the super quick turnaround on recipe sharing, reviewing and modifying.  Someone posts a recipe, and by the next day countless other bloggers have tried it out, weighed in with their opinions, personal…

Sweet Potato Hummus!

After wanting to try it for ages, I finally got around to whipping up a batch of Choosing Raw‘s Sweet Potato Hummus this afternoon.  It’s been a while since I’ve made any wacky hummuses, but considering sweet potatoes + chickpeas in pretty much any form…

A Vegan Travel How-To!

Basically, the only piece of advice you need as a travelling vegan is: be prepared!  If I’ve learned anything from my frequent cross-country flights and Toronto-NYC bus trips, it’s NEVER take for granted the possibility of finding edible, nutritious vegan food on travel days.  I…

The Anatomy of a Grain Bowl

To say I’ve eaten enough grain bowls for a lifetime might be an understatement.  After four years of working at two of the cities most popular vegan eateries, let’s just say it’s the rare day I’m interested in a bowl of brown rice with veggies,…

Christmas Pudding Cookies

I ate three four of these cookies and a bowl of kale chips for dinner. That’s what a nutritionist does the day after an epic Hanukkah cook off and feast, I guess. I was going to call these (Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free) Gingerbread Cranberry Walnut Cacao Muffin…

Chocolate Socca.

I know, I know.  I said kale was up next.  But then I ate CHOCOLATE SOCCA for brunch today and, well, that was that. To say I’m obsessed with socca right now might be putting it mildly.  I was eating the crispy, savoury rosemary socca…

Socca. Farinata. Chickpea pancake. Thingy.

I’ve been making socca for about a year and a half now.  Or maybe I’ve been making farinata.  Or maybe the purists would say I’ve been making blasphemy.  Either way, I’ve been making some sort of chickpea flour flatbread pancake type thingy in a skillet in a really hot…
