There’s something magical about the combination of herbs, the lemony tang and the vibrant green colour. Creamy and savoury this dip is sure to be a hit. Gluten free, dairy free, legume free – it’s a perfect addition to your spring crudité platter, served up with some roasted veggies… or as a dip for chips. It’s so delicious you’ll have a hard time not eating by the spoonful.
Around here we eat some sort of ferment at least once a day. A welcome addition to any meal, tangy and salty these three ferments are just a few that I make on rotation. The classic caraway sauerkraut is Adrian’s favourite. While I love the vibrant hue and the subtle earthiness of the beet cabbage sauerkraut, the curtido (cabbage, carrot and onion) might be my new favourite.
A quick, simple and perfectly spring inspired meal. Baked salmon on a bed of mixed greens. Creamy avocado, boiled potatoes, crisp radishes and juicy tangerines. All topped with a parsley caper based dressing that is delicious on just about anything.
This pesto is deliciously green and nutty, packed with toasted cashews and large handfuls of spinach. Enjoy it as a pizza topping, for breakfast with eggs and potatoes, or my most recent preferred way of eating it, with spaghetti squash.
Sometimes you just need a damn treat. These buns are best fresh out of the oven, when the chocolate inside is warm and melty. Soft, chewy, bursting with raisins and oozing with dark chocolate. With a hot cup of coffee, this combination is pure bliss!
Warming spices, aromatic ginger and garlic, saucy deliciousness. A quick and easy weeknight meal. Simmer chickpeas in a large pot with pureed tomatoes, spices and steeped black tea. Cook up a pot of rice and you’ll be eating a hearty comforting meal, better than any take out chickpeas in no time at all.
Roasted sweet potatoes stuffed with sautéed onions, peppers and tofu cooked in a saucy spice mix. Top it all off with a dairy free cashew sour cream! Sweet, spicy, savoury, creamy, tangy… this hits all the notes, sure to leave you satiated.
This cashew based dip is smooth, creamy, and perfectly tangy with a hint of heat from the pickled jalapeños. If you’re avoiding legumes or are simply interested in expanding your dip repertoire you should give this a try!
Phew, that’s a mouthful! Savoury and satisfying, this veggie packed sauce with grass-fed/grass-finished beef is served on top of roasted spaghetti squash. Nature’s noodles, simply roasted in the oven, a flavourful sauce simmered on the stove, all piled high and topped off with a bright and tangy, vibrantly green parsley caper sauce.
This soup is easy to put together and is packed with hearty and comforting flavours. Don’t be deceived by the strange purple colour, this is the soup I crave when I’m feeling under the weather. Mine may have (accidentally) turned purple. I didn’t think that through when adding purple carrots, but if you stick to orange carrots you can avoid this. Maybe I just need to see the positive… purple foods = anthocyanins = good for you.
