Baked Tofu and Yogurt Sauce

Yogurt sauce is a fairly common culinary component but it seems to have not gained as much traction with the vegan community, maybe because even some plant-based veterans are not that familiar with the variety of vegan yogurt options available.   It is, after all, a somewhat recent innovation.  Given that the yogurt we are most…

Chocolate & Pudding Pie

I used to eat a lot of pudding both before and after I went vegan. Fortunately, there are a lot of pre-made vegan options and many of the powders are vegan friendly if you use plant-based milk. For some reason, my pudding love tapered off, maybe because I reached my saturation point, but recently it’s…

Potato and Broccoli Soup

There’s very little that I like about winter.  The thought of having to contend with the snow, ice and cold tends to make me recoil.  This year, so far, winter has been a very different experience, and I’m seeing it unfold largely only in periphery with limited glimpses from my basement apartment windows.  One of…

Miso-Peanut Udon Noodle Stew

Anyone who has tried to piece together a fully functional meal from disparate cupboard and fridge remains knows that random recipe concoctions can go very wrong sometimes, but once in a while you stumble upon some really nice combinations.  Working with ingredients on hand is great practice and pushes you to think about the ingredients…

Pumpkin-Oat Cinnamon Rolls

As of this past Monday, Toronto is back in a COVID lockdown.  Our case count in Toronto, in Ontario and in much of Canada, is wildly out of control.  Unfortunately, despite knowing full well there was a second fall/winter wave coming, and that it would likely be much worse than the first, our provincial government…

Ten Instagram Dream Kitchens

All things considered, I’m grateful for my reasonably priced basement apartment.  It may not be luxurious, but it is safe and comfortable and these are not things to easily disregard, or be ungrateful for, in our current economic climate.  That being said, now being stuck at home more frequently, it is a struggle to draw…

Harvest Vegetable Pot Pie

It’s about that time of year that we start thinking about hibernation foods.  Most of us do not have the luxury of hiding in our homes to ride out the brutal winter months (or safely shelter from COVID outbreaks), but nevertheless, having our pantry and fridges well stocked with hearty and ready to go food…

Scrambled Tofu Quesadillas

I’m not sure why exactly, but I’ve always had high expectations of breakfast.   Maybe because it’s the introductory meal of the day and can sometimes set the tone for the rest of the morning.  For example, start by eating something that your bored with and that mood will likely continue.  I find breakfast foods are…
