Crispy Baked Portobello Mushroom Fries

These fries go against the conventional idea of a “fry” in all the best ways. Mushroom slices coated with panko, cheese and spices and baked until they’re crispy and perfect. Cover anything in panko and I can almost guarantee it will taste good. These are a nice variation from regular fries for a few reasons. For one…

Spanakopita Triangles

If you’re having vegetarians over to your house and you need an appetizer, this is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. These bite-sized savoury pastries will save in the freezer for up to a month, and they take under 15 minutes to bake once they’re prepared. The only real difficulty is folding the phyllo sheets into triangles—this…

Rosemary and Sea Salt Baked Beet Chips

It’s been raining a lot where I live lately, and I happen to also be studying for exams, so the mix of those two things means eating lots of junky food. Snacking is inevitable. With this in mind, I figured I should probably make a healthier munchie so I’m not eating garbage all the time….

Baked Bloomin’ Onion

There are some foods that are nostalgic. People either associate them with a specific person from their child, or maybe an occasion that sticks in their memory. For me, the Bloomin’ Onion is one of those foods. I took a trip to Florida with my family when I was younger, and we went to the…

Quick Multi-Seed Crackers

This was my first attempt at making homemade crackers and all things considered, it went pretty well. The only thing I did wrong with this recipe was I didn’t roll the dough out thin enough so my “crackers” are more like baked pita bread, but they still taste good. One really cool thing about these…

Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Mushroom Caps

Let’s talk about bacon. I feel like with the explosion of shows like Epic Meal Time people went into a bacon craze that lasted for years. Bacon toothpaste, lip balm, vodka…you name it. This might have been good news for meat-eaters, but for vegetarians it was hard to find an appetizer at a bar that…

Rice Paper Salad Rolls

Rice paper is truly a unique ingredient. When soaked in hot water, it becomes clear and flexible allowing you to make transparent wraps. The other great thing about having see-through rolls is that you don’t have to bake it, so you can pack them full of raw veggies. They look colourful and go well with…

Agedashi Tofu

Agedashi tofu is a great little appetizer for parties, or just for a brunch for two. It’s got a tangy and spicy sauce with the crunch of fried tofu and green onions. You can eat this just on its own, or you can serve it with a small bowl of miso soup and an orange…

Mozzarella Sticks

A lot of people have the notion that vegetarians always eat healthy. WRONG. We like greasy bar food just as much as the next person. I’m doing a double-shot of fried food posts because a few friends and I decided to get together for lunch and experiment frying different foods. I got this recipe from…
