Homemade vegan dog treats

Yummy Vegan Dog Treats

I have bought dog cookies and treats for years until I tried making my own and since, I never went back to the store version. I know what’s in them, I can vary the recipe depending on what I have on hand. Our 3 furry kids love peanut butter!  I usually make a big batch […]

Vegan beet soup

Vegan Borscht – Beet Soup

I woke up early this morning to discover my garden covered by a thick blanket of snow. Every little branch had a layer, every item was covered perfectly. It was a scene straight out of a Japanese garden in the winter. Breathtaking! For some reason, all I could think about was making a nice borscht, […]

Homemade Fried Rice

Quick Vegetable Fried Rice

Vegetable fried rice is a great dish to make when you have some left over rice and vegetables in the fridge. It can be made in less than 15mn!  This great Chinese classic was probably created to make sure that nothing in the kitchen was wasted. Folks in the South of China turned their leftovers […]

Dairy-free cheese ball

Dairy-Free Cheese Ball

Cheese spread in the shape of a ball is a truly an American party classic but let’s be honest, it is also pretty fattening and artery clogging! It is a great appetizer everyone enjoys around the holidays, at potlucks and pic-nics.  What if you could make a dairy-free cheese ball? Warning!  This ‘cheez’ ball will […]

Fresh Cranberry Relish

Fresh Orange Cranberry Relish

Fresh orange Cranberry relish is one of my favorite side because it combines the perfect balance of tartness from the cranberries and sweeteness from the oranges. You also get all the health benefits because there is no cooking. Cranberries are loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants. At home, we don’t just wait for Thanksgiving or Christmas to make it, we stock […]

Purple Yam

Sorry folks, it has been a while that I have posted a recipe. I have been busy preparing and teaching classes. But I do want to share something I discovered last week. I was shopping at an Asian grocery store for one of my classes and noticed in the vegetable section next to the potatoes some purple […]

Vegan Tortilla Soup

Vegan Tortilla Soup

Hello everyone! I just got back from a week in Cancun, Mexico to celebrate two of my dearest girlfriend’s birthday. I know, it is a tough life, but someone has to do it! As vegans, we were a little worried about what we would be eating in an all-inclusive hotel, since we no longer eat cheese, […]

Grilled vegetable paninis

Yummy Grilled Vegetable Paninis

Most countries have a version of a grilled sandwich. France calls it Croque-monsieur, Americans call it grilled sandwich, Italians, grilled paninis, you get the idea. My mom makes the best grilled sandwich Italian style so I decided to create a vegan version. To get the full effect, you will need sliced vegan meat (Tofurkey smoke […]

Fresh salad spread

Fresh Salad Spread

I was trying to find a translation for this salad and couldn’t come up with one that conveyed the meaning of assiète de crudités. A plate of raw vegetables sounds somehow boring and uneventful while the French equivalent is a standard in French restaurants, showcasing the freshness of local produce for customers wanting a light dish with lots of flavor […]
