This Chili Non Carne recipe was inspired by a diner stop in Olympia, WA. I ordered a side of house made veg chili with my tempeh sandwich, and my daughter fell in love with it. She asked me to come up with something similar, so I did a bit of research online and came up with a New York Times Recipe to use as my base inspiration.
I absolutely love Indian Curry, there is something so warm and nourishing about it. We have been out and about a lot since starting our travels, and I am finding that quick and easy pressure cooked or slow cooked meals work really well for us.
Green Curry is one of my favourite dishes, probably because I lived in South East Asian when I was very little and this was something we ate often. It is now one of my go-to comfort foods (no chicken noodle soup for me!)
Just when I thought spring was upon us with its corresponding smoothie and salad cravings, a Newfoundland style Sheila's Brush descended with a cold, wet and bleary day more reminiscent of November than March. As a result, I found myself reaching back in the fridge for my grounding root vegetables and miso paste.
Lasagna has to be one of my favourite things in the entire world. If it wasn't so labour intensive we'd be eating it all the time! My lasagna recipe tends to change slightly every time I make it, usually depending on the ingredients I have on hand.
Curry Laksa is one of my all time favourite dishes. Unfortunately Malaysian Restaurants can be hard to come by, especially in smaller cities like St John's and Victoria. Finding a plant friendly option for this soup is also challenging, given that it is typically made with chicken stock, chicken and often seafood.
Nothing says Christmas quite like a steaming hot bowl of Pho. Well perhaps not for most people, but in all seriousness, when parties start rockin' and colds come a knockin', I appreciate having a couple of nourishing immune boosting recipes in my back pocket.
I have been a fan of hot and sour soup for as long as I can remember. I would take a piping hot & spicy bowl over veg noodle soup any day of the week. Even in our pre-plant based days, this particular soup got my vote over chicken noodle. During cold and flu season I find myself making lots of nourishing soup recipes, to help boost my immune system and keep me warm and toasty when temperatures are dropping outside.
