Zucchini Quinoa Burgers

Hey there readers, long time no see. I’m still alive, I promise! The past month has been crazy for me, hence my one post in the past 4 weeks. I got a new job, moved out, and have essentially been out of town or running around like a crazy person ever since. But I am…

Vegan Guacamole, Broccoli and Alfalfa Sprouts Wrap

Buying lunch is one of the biggest money draining activities there is. Take 10 minutes the  night before (or morning of, if you’re one of those crazy morning people) and save yourself the money. It’s also way more customizable for portions and taste, not to mention it’s nutritional benefits. This wrap is packed to the…

Orange, Cheddar and Pine Nut Asian Salad with Sesame

This recipe is the photo that has been the banner of my blog from day one. It’s light, colourful and packs a mix of flavours that aren’t commonly seen together. I’m heading up to the cottage for May 24 weekend, and this is the type of thing that’s perfect up there along with a veggie…

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…

Two-Cheese Eggplant and Arugula Bagel Sandwich

Bad at thinking up lunch ideas? Try this out. It takes a bit of prep time in advance but it will be much more satisfying than grabbing a sandwich from some cafeteria that’s been sitting there for hours. There’s also not a great variety of vegetarian sandwiches at most delis unless you happen to work…

Roasted Beet and Sweet Potato Sliders

I’ve mentioned before in some of my posts that soggy bread is my worst enemy. It’s disgusting. It’s not like I want my sandwich to be bone-dry, I just don’t want a layer of mush surrounding my filling. Here are a few good ways to avoid soggy bread. The most obvious one is toast your…

Veggie “Burger Bowl” Salad

I’m not a huge fan of eating veggie burgers with buns because it’s too filling and gets soggy…gross. Most of the time I just cook up veggie burgers and eat them with a knife and fork, but it gets a little boring and it doesn’t really feel like a proper meal. Burger bowls are a…

Spicy Udon Noodle Soup

With winter coming up (way too quickly) what better meal to warm you up than a spicy soup? Udon soup has these thick delicious noodles that absorb flavour and make for a great, filling meal. It’s super healthy, packed with veggies and is flexible to your personal taste and spice tolerance. I looked all around…

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

It seems like every time I come into my kitchen there is some form of gourd on my counter. This time, it’s butternut squash. I adapted this recipe from How to Eat, changed up a few things and it was perfect! I was surprised at how thick and creamy the soup tasted because there’s absolutely…

Salad in a Jar

I brought one of these stacked up salads to school today and let me tell you, it got quite a few comments. The recipes are all flexible and the salad stays fresh for days in your fridge so you don’t have to scramble for lunches in the morning. I saw this idea from both The Daily…
