The Ultimate Vegetarian Lasagna

Noodles and cheese. Sometimes it just can’t be beat. Smother it in a slow simmered colourful vegetable sauce and you’ve got yourself a meal. I made this for dinner, ate 2 pieces (I want to call them slices but it doesn’t seem right) and had another one the next morning for breakfast. I was pleasantly…

Butternut Squash Risotto

I’ve always had an unexplicable struggle with properly cooking rice. I even have a rice cooker and still manage to mess it up (yes, it’s sad). That’s why when I had a craving for risotto, I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out. Luckily for me, my mom has made risotto many times…

Basic Bread Crust Croutons

Have leftover crusts from another recipe? Turn them into a crunchy garnish in less than 20 minutes. I made these croutons with the intention of using them as a topping for soups and salads but ended up eating them as a snack instead…and they went fast. The great thing about this recipe is that you…

Double Baked Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash is the ultimate gluten-free substitute for any wheat-based pastas. Unlike regular squash like acorn or butternut where you would just cube it or slice it, spaghetti squash pulls apart into thin edible “threads” which is where it gets its name. It’s easy to roast, doesn’t need lots of seasoning and reheats well if…

Vegan Veal Parmesan Sandwich

I just got home from a trip to Florida, and I have to admit America is an odd place to be a vegetarian. Most restaurants didn’t have a single veg item on their menu, and when one man heard I was a vegetarian he jokingly told me to “Go back to my planet”. I loved…

Quinoa Pizza Balls

A big complaint from people who are gluten-free is that doughs made without wheat flour are “grainy” and don’t taste authentic. This means no pizza, bread and all those other wonderful doughy foods. For this recipe, instead of subbing out wheat flour for another kind, I just skipped the dough completely. Quinoa and beans are…

Mini Calzones (Pizza Pops)

Sauce, cheese and veggies all folded up in dough and baked in your oven…it’s essentially a big ball of homemade pizza. Life is good. Pizza pops are one of my guilty pleasures. I could just demolish a box of those no problem, but they aren’t all too good for you. When you make them yourself,…

Naan Pesto Pizza

Just a very basic recipe that takes 10 minutes. Not a whole lot of work was put into this, just quick, fun and thought it would be worth a short post! Store-bought pizza dough has never really been my friend. I love the way it smells, and working with it is always fun, but I…

Fresh Basil Pesto

Before anything else, I would just like to officially say that I am a Workaholics addict. I can not get enough of that show and the new season is out next week so I can’t wait! Anyways, I’m trying my best to get every last bit of fresh stuff from my garden. The one thing…
