Roasted red pepper ‘Cream’ sauce – Vegan

I am pretty flexible. I don’t like routines and seldom legalistic. Somedays my husband wishes I had a bit more structure. That is the way our house approaches the Daniel fast, we are flexible. Some say you MUST ONLY EAT RAW veg at every meal. Call be a bit of a rebel but I say…

What’s for breakfast ? Coconut rice & fruit

What to eat for breakfast? That is the question I am hearing these days. My family normally would eat hot breakfast of eggs & toast. Or cold cereal with milk. After cutting out animal products my husband struggles to find suitable breakfasts that fills him. I knew eating breakfast without animal products or refined sugars…

Vegetarian chilli

Growing up I was never allowed to help make chilli with my father, unlike the spaghetti sauce where my job was to stir. Some how chilli required a great deal more secrecy. I never was sure why, perhaps it was simply the fact that as a child, if I knew what went in I was…

Grilled Polenta and Ragout – Vegan.

When I think Betty Crocker, I think of gingham, of old out dated recipes from my mothers era and those boxes of cake mixes on grocery shelves. So this dinner recipe really surprised me.

Who said vegan has to be boring rabbit food? Just because your choosing to eat plant based does not mean you need to suffer your meals.

Once in winter for wishful winter health foods. One of my Winter health foods is Thai peanut salads. I love peanut sauces it pears beautifully with many types…

Creamy Vegan mushroom soup

Mushroom soup is one of my favourite comfort foods. During the 21 day Daniel fast one must remove dairy, which systematically cuts out all dairy. One could replace it with coconut cream but sometimes you just don’t want that coconut flavour… like in the case of wild mushroom soup…so often times that means you go…

Happily ever after- No Sugar Fruit Crumble

As a child I always wanted to be a princess. Who knew in 2021 we would wake up and realize we’re living the Disney dream…. literally. So – if we take covid as plot development – we are well on our way to a good old fashion happy ending …but in all seriousness, during this…

Cashew cream – your secret to non dairy

Cashews can take the place of heavy cream in a recipe, it is true. If your avoiding dairy and think Creamy Pastas, soups and parfaits are gone – they can still be on the menu ! Cashew cream – sounds weird to those used to milk or cream. But Soaked cashews when puréed turn into…

No-yeast pizza crust – Jamie Oliver

When fasting with youth it is hard to get them motivated- the lack of “fun” food often puts them off. Say the word Pizza, and my kids are all ears. This recipe is from Jamie Oliver’s cook book, I love his creativity. Also because it’s Jamie we know it’s a dependable recipe – I have…
