Tempeh Kale Salad with Tahini Dressing

Kale tempeh salad with Tahini Dressing. I can’t believe this is my first time sharing a tempeh recipe. Before moving to BC, 5 months ago, I had only ever had tempeh once, at a potluck with dietitian friends. For some reason, I never bothered cooking with it at home. Then we travelled across Canada and tried many new vegetarian restaurants. After trying tempeh in different dishes, I knew I needed to start cooking with it at home. My favorite way to eat it so far? In a salad with tahini dressing. It’s so good, it’s making me crave salads every day. This salad is ready in less than 30 minutes, which makes it perfect for last-minute weeknight meals. Here’s how it’s made: Start by chopping the kale (small bite sizes makes it much easier…

Whole Wheat Vegan Biscuits

Healthier whole wheat vegan biscuits, perfect for holiday entertaining! Biscuits always had their part in all of our big family dinners. More specifically, growing up, my grandmother would always make us homemade biscuits to have as a snack or as a dessert in a strawberry shortcake. Strawberry shortcakes were our favorite, especially served with ice cream. Now I wanted to create a healthier version to our traditional white flour biscuits. My version is made vegan and a little heartier (but still so good) with whole wheat flour. If you’re not into whole wheat flour, don’t worry, you can easily sub the flour for all-purpose white flour! To make this recipe vegan, I used vegan margarine/butter and I replaced buttermilk with my own mix of almond milk and apple cider vinegar. Again, you can substitute…

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Garlic Pecans

Roasted Brussels sprouts with garlic pecans. The most addictive holiday side dish. I don’t know about you, but brussels sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables. In my opinion, they’re seriously underrated. Steamed they’re okay, but roasted? I could eat the whole pan. I think that’s the key if you don’t like vegetables. Try them roasted and it will change your mind. These brussels sprouts aren’t only roasted, but they’re also topped with toasted salty and garlicky pecans. Those pecans are what takes these brussels sprouts to the next level. It’s what makes them even better for your holiday feast. Trust me. I first used these toasted pecans in this savory sweet potato casserole last year. I loved it so much that this year…

Vegan Cashew Eggnog (Sugar-Free)

I hope you’re starting to get in the holiday spirit because I have a delicious vegan cashew eggnog for you guys today! Where do you stand on traditional eggnog? Do you like it or not? Growing up, I was obsessed with it and so was my whole family. As soon as eggnog would come out at the store, my mom would buy a few cartons and we’d go through all of it within days. We were all eggnog lovers. It’s only later that I realized that not everyone is as obsessed with this sweet milk as we are. Some say it’s sickeningly sweet. I didn’t understand them… Until now. I will admit, it’s been 4 years since I’ve had eggnog (since I stopped eating added…
