the greenest soup

The Creamiest Green Soup is faintly Scandinavian, with plenty of seasonal greens, an avocado, soft herbs, and a few gentle spices. All blitzed to a velvety haze of spring green. This is the time of year when some of us quietly slip soup off the menu. As the temperature rises, we can be desperate to …

winter vegetable pilau rice

Winter Vegetable Pilau Rice is a substantial vegan main dish, studded with roasted winter vegetables and cooked in a fragrant coconut and spice sauce.  My last few recipes – Salmon with Winter Fruit Salsa, Roasted Celeriac, and my Brown Butter Banana Bread – have been simple ones. Not too many ingredients; not too many steps. …

colouful coleslaw in wooden bowl with wooden spoons on concrete background

Creamy Sunflower-Ranch Coleslaw – Ditch the mayo and blend up roasted sunflower seeds, with ranch dressing flavours, for a more healthful coleslaw. A whole food twist on a BBQ, pot-luck and picnic favorite. Coleslaw has got a bit of a bad rap. It’s funny how something where the main ingredients are cabbage and carrots can …

smashed cucumber salad in bowls with tofu on concrete background

Smashed cucumber salad is a glorious, simple recipe that is more than the sum of its parts. Crisp, craggy shards of cucumber and slivers of broccoli are infused with a zippy, garlicky dressing, then studded with chili tofu. It really is quite sublime. And it is completely no-cook.  I repeat, no cook. Below is my …

Feature image of Kung Pao style broccoli on handmade grey ceramic plate on concrete background

Kung Pao Broccoli has the tongue-tingling, sweet, salty and tangy taste of the original Sichuan chicken dish, but is vegan and full of fiber. A great, silky-sauced side dish, or light main meal with rice. We’ve got a garden, but I don’t have green fingers. Basically I throw seeds into our back yard raised beds …
