Tarts and Quiches
Curried Squash and Apple Soup
This is a perfect Autumn harvest soup! The apples add a slight tang that pairs so nicely with the creamy sweetness of the squash!
Lentil Kale Filo Pockets
This elegant dish can be served as a main course or appetizer to impress company! Make a big batch and freeze on a baking sheet overnight, and then transfer to freezer bags. They will last for about 6 months in the freezer. When you are having company, pop a couple out of the freezer and bake!
Red Quinoa and Edamame Budha Bowl
In this Budha Bowl, I use red quinoa – well... just because it’s so pretty! As well as protein packed edamame and of course avocado! Dig in...It’s good for you!
Vegan “Egg” and Spinach Breakfast Wrap
Oh wow are these little sandwiches delicious! The best part is you can make a big batch and freeze them. When busy mornings come around place a couple in the microwave and enjoy!
Salad Topped with Bean Sprouts and Baby Corn
This is a fun twist on a classic green salad. I find the bean sprouts and baby corn give it a slightly Asian twist, but also add lots of fun texture and flavor!
Vietnamese Pho with Spiralized Yellow Beets and Rutabaga
There’s nothing quite like a big bowl of Pho – a classic Vietnamese soup filled with loads of veggies and noodles. In this version, I use spiralized beets and rutabaga in place of the noodles, for some guilt-free slurping!
Kale & Sweet Potato Slaw with Cranberries and Pecans
This is a really hearty salad for any meal! And yes ... the sweet potato is added raw and it is delicious!! Bring this salad to your next potluck and you will be the hero! This will make a very large salad, but it will keep in the fridge for a few days if you have leftovers.
Leek and Potato Soup
A deliciously creamy and comforting classic!
This is a really great spread for your morning bagel or some crackers for an afternoon snack! It’s a wonderful alternative to peanut butter! This recipe will make about 1 cup of Almond Butter. It will store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 1 month. Note that in order to get proper consistency on this butter you need a really powerful blender such as a Vitamix or a Ninja.
Swiss Chard and Toasted Walnut Pizza
When swiss chard is in season make this pizza! It tastes so fresh and delicious! The little crunch from the walnuts adds such a nice surprise texture!
Corny Kale Chickpeas
This is a delicious and hearty lunch time salad. You can eat it hot or cold, but I have to say I really prefer eating it hot! If you are taking it for a lunch at the office, just place all the ingredients in a Tupperware and microwave when ready to eat.
Giant Burrito with Rice, Beans and Tofu
Ok, now this is a sandwich! A gigantic burrito filled with rice, beans and tofu – a challenge to fit into your mouth!
An upscale lentil salad full of herbs and sundried tomatoes! Perfect for a picnic lunch or a bbq!
Lemony Celery and Portobello Salad
This is a great change from a routine green salad. It is really easy to put together and it is really fun to eat, really fresh, lemony and crunchy!
Quinoa with Beans and Kale
A great mix of so many superfoods! This simple dish will keep you full of energy all day!
Herbed Quinoa with Chickpeas and Walnuts
A really nice refreshing quinoa salad! Full of fresh herbs this is a great salad for a potluck or to serve as a grain with any meal!
Grilled Onion, Red Pepper and Olive Sandwiches
The sharpness of the olives pairs so beautifully with the sweetness of the roasted peppers and onions in this delicious sandwich!
Vegetarian Shawarma Sandwiches
A real Middle Eastern treat! These shawarma sandwiches are so satisfying you will forget they are veggie!
Peanutty Cucumber “Noodle” Salad
This is a great refreshing “noodle” salad – where the noodles are made entirely of ... cucumbers!! Really yummy without the guilt!
Peanut Butter and Apple Toast
This recipe comes from the classic PB&J that everyone knows and loves! Instead of jam though, I use fresh apple slices for a crisp and refreshing contrast to the creamy peanut butter! Great for a breakfast, lunch sandwich or a post workout snack!
