Tarts and Quiches
Leek, Chickpea and Tomato Soup
I absolutely love this comforting and hearty tomato based soup! The addition of chickpeas makes it a really satisfying meal.
Lentil, Barley and Spinach Soup
This soup is so hearty and delicious; you will make it again and again!
Soft Tacos Stuffed With Lemony Tofu and Avocado
These tacos are so addictive! They taste like something you would get at a beach side restaurant – the tofu is crispy and lemony with the creamy avocado and crunchy coleslaw on top. You have to try them!
Delicious on crackers or in a sandwich for lunch!
Quinoa Salad with Grilled Onions, Asparagus and Orange Segments
Quinoa is a super grain because it is one of the few foods that provides vegetarians with a complete protein. This salad is particularly nice because of the colour and texture contrasts. I find grilling the onions adds an extra element of flavour and the orange segments are really nice as they burst in your mouth!
Spinach and Zaatar Crispy Tart
A great appetizer for a dinner party or a brunch item. Zaatar is a middleeastern spice mixture that contains thyme, sesame seeds and sumac. It is very flavourful!
Grilled Portobello Flank Steak Sandwiches
These sandwiches are so meaty you won’t miss the meat!
Mixed Bean and Avocado Burritos
A hearty and delicious sandwich treat!
Tastiest Tossed Salad with a Tahini Citrus Dressing
This salad has so many wonderful ingredients in it that provide amazing crunch and flavours. The creamy tahini dressing really ties it all together!
Vegan Creamy Broccoli Soup
The addition of silken tofu adds such a nice velvety texture to this non-dairy soup.
Asian Tossed Salad
I just love this salad because of all the different ingredients it has. So many different textures and flavours makes this salad so much fun to eat!
Grilled Vegetable Sandwiches
There's a reason this is such a popular vegetarian sandwich - it's really good! In this version, I grill my favourite veggies, eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms and peppers.
Japanese Noodle Soup
A great slurping soup! It feels like you are in an authentic Japanese noodle house.
Bhelipouri - Indian Street Food
I discovered this recipe after reading Indian literature, where the characters kept talking about eating Bhelipouri. I was so curious as to what this was and there started my research! It is a very common Indian street food made up of fresh mangos and spices mixed with puffed rice and nuts. It's really delicious!
Black Bean Soup
This is a traditional Cuban comfort food recipe. The chipotle pepper adds a nice smokey and spicy flavour. I like to serve it along with bowls of chopped cilantro, onions, sour cream and tortilla chips and allow each person to top their own bowl.
This is a class Middle Eastern appetizer dip. It is great on its own served with pita or vegetables. It can also be used as a versatile condiment or sandwich spread.
