Vegan Chickpea Pasta Salad with Tahini Dressing

Vegan chickpea pasta salad with tahini dressing. Chickpeas, pasta, arugula, red onion, tomatoes and tahini dressing. Key word here: Tahini. Have you ever tried tahini dressing with pasta? It’s life-changing (slight exaggeration here, but my love for tahini dressing is real). Rarely do I make a salad without it, no matter the kind of salad. Part of it is because it tastes so good, the other part of it is because I’m too lazy most days to make creamy dressings using avocadoes or cashews and a blender. I mean, more dishes? No thank you. To make things even better, this salad is all done in one bowl (plus a small mason jar to make the sauce, but at least that can easily go in the dishwasher). Here’s how it goes: Boil the pasta…

Roasted Potato Pesto Salad with Spicy Chipotle Chickpeas

Roasted potato pesto salad with spicy chipotle chickpeas. Another delicious vegan recipe for you guys! I’m almost halfway through my vegan month and to be honest, it doesn’t feel different from my usual diet. That doesn’t mean it’s not a bit challenging at times. The most challenging change for me was to omit the milk in my coffee. While I don’t usually drink cow’s milk anyways (personal preference and a slight intolerance), I do add a touch of whole milk in my coffee every morning. Almond milk, coconut milk and soy milk are not the same. Nope. I just can’t tolerate the taste in coffee. So far, I’ve been using cashew milk, which tastes the best in coffee in my opinion. Vegan creamers would…

Healthier Peanut Noodle & Tofu Bowl

Healthier peanut noodle and tofu bowl. My current favorite easy dinner. Have you ever tried a savory peanut butter recipe? If not, you need to try this out. Trust me, this peanut sauce is everything. Funny thing is, this recipe started off as a pasta-free salad with almond vinaigrette. Somehow this happened instead. I have no regrets. Before we moved to Saint John, I used to make peanut noodles almost weekly. Or at least I did for a few months, right before we moved in an apartment with my friend who’s allergic to peanuts. Naturally, this recipe was put on the back burner until I could use peanut butter again. I mean, I could have made a peanut-free version with Wow butter, which could have been good, but I decided to wait. In my opinion, it…

Instant Pot Butter Chickpea

I have a delicious Instant Pot butter chickpea for you guys today. I’m excited to share my first Instant Pot recipe after spending a few months trying to figure out how it works. Yes, a few months. It’s not like I used it every day, but the few times I did, I had no idea how to use it. I promise I read the instructions manual, but something just didn’t click. My visual brain needed videos from YouTube to figure this thing out. So here I am, a few months later, confident enough to share my very own Instant Pot recipe. And it’s a good one! Don’t worry, if you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can still make this recipe. I included a stove top version just…

Whole Wheat Broccoli Cheddar Pizza

Whole wheat broccoli cheddar pizza. Yes, I said broccoli. On a pizza. I had a few comments about it. Apparently some find broccoli on a pizza a bit weird? Honestly, I never thought for a second that this wasn’t a good idea. To me, you can’t beat greens on a pizza. I’m also obsessed with roasted broccoli, so why not combine both? Trust me, once you try it, you won’t find it weird at all. It’s the most delicious combination, especially when paired with cheddar, garlic and thyme. Green pizza lovers, you know what I mean! Many of you said you were excited for the recipe, so I’m guessing I’m not the only one who thinks this is a good idea? Also, in my defense, some…
