Cauliflower walnut Bolognese

Cauliflower walnut bolognese is a wonderful way to spruce up your meatless Monday. This meal is made with simple ingredients that won't break the bank and can be put together in no time at all. Plus the upside of this dish is that you get your vegetable fix plus a whole lot of flavor in one, now that is a winning combo if I say so myself.

Glossy citrus beet salad

Glossy citrus beet salad is a pretty and fresh addition on your table this winter. Zesty, with hints of tangy yogurt, fresh mint and toasted sesame seeds coming through. I truly love salads even in wintertime and I was wondering how could I incorporate salads without it being a drag to eat when it's cold outside and the perfect way I could think of was adding so much depth of flavor with this salad right here.

Bran buttermilk vegan rusks

Bran buttermilk rusks are simply the perfect addition to my morning routine. They are so tasty, loaded with seeds, jumbo raisins and 100% plant-based. Hard to believe that these sweet dried slices of bread are so good, I made a batch for when the baby has arrived to keep me preoccupied for the couple weeks to come.

Beet chocolate loaf

Beet chocolate loaf is fudgy, absolutely divine with thee best frosting. It's certainly a winning combo and nearly too hard to believe its 100% plant-based. Even though you might be sick of sweet things especially after the holidays, this loaf is the exception to the rule, due to added veggies. It's a kinda healthy dessert, so not a cheat meal at all, but part of your five a day.

Chickpea carrot butternut tagine

Chickpea carrot butternut tajine is the perfect comforting meal this winter. I love this fragrant dish, it just adds that something extra when you want to make something extortionary. It's super tasty, made with wholesome ingredients to soothe the soul, especially lately since I am missing home quite a bit and the winter blues have been rolling around in the quinte little town.

What I ate today plant based pregnancy

What I ate today plant-based pregnancy is just a low down on my regular meals these past weeks. Even though it varies day to day, I try to stick to the basics which are plant-based protein, lots of veggies, fats and low GI carbs in every meal. I am craving fruit, smoothies and chopped salads with this pregnancy whereas with my first pregnancy I was craving salty treats like there was no tomorrow.

Zesty warm berry tapioca pudding

Zesty warm berry tapioca pudding is just a wonderful belly warmer in the mid of winter. Citrus fruit is in abundance right now, and I never really liked citrus fruit in cooking, but I have to say experimenting with the very vibrant fruit has been amazing. They go well in baked goods, salads, stir-fries and chocolate, and who doesn't like chocolate? Using the pulp to the zest of the skin adds just so much flavor to meals. Especially this creamy tapioca pudding, it's seriously sooo good!

Caramel peppermint chocolate tart

Caramel mint chocolate tart, helo 2020! This just feels wrong, am I the only one who cannot believe how fast 2019 has gone by, or was it the fact that I once again was asleep before 12 and was not up to celebrating. The party has kinda died since moving to France and becoming a mom, so I guess the best kind of way I can celebrate is with food, obviously! Kicking this year off with one of my absolute favorite SA desserts. Its a caramel and mint creamy dream mushed together with a crunchy coconut biscuit base.

Gingerbread cranberry tiramisu

Gingerbread cranberry tiramisu is the cherry on top for my festive creation this year. The list got shorter and shorter by the end, but the grand finale was so worth the wait. This tiramisu is spiced with season's finest spice and produce, layered with coffee syrup and topped with a creamy whip for that creme de la creme. This plant-based version will blow your guest's minds and you'll probably want to make it again very very soon.

Tipsy tart cupcakes

Tipsy tart cupcakes are just another way to celebrate this Festive season. Whatever the occasion calls for these cupcakes are a perfect way to set the mood. Sticky toffee and delectable toffee kind of puddings are what I'm living for this festive season. Easy on the booze this time around, but none the less I'm not skipping on the sticky gooey goodness.
