Why Plant-based/vegan? This is one of the most frequent asked questions I have received this past year. So what does it all mean? What do you eat, what protein do you eat, do you drink milk and eat eggs? The list goes on. To me this past year has been an easy transition, but to others, does the sacrifice suffice the reward?

Mesquite cashew caramel blondies are close to best blondies I have ever had. I have recently started to use Mesquite powder and I have to say I absolutely love the taste this superfood adds to a smoothie or cakes. With these blondies, it adds that something special.

Creamy mushroom stuffed spinach ravioli is the way homemade pasta should be done. The effort is a tad bit much so be sure to be in the mood for food when you make these. These pretty green pasta pockets are filled with a cashew cream mushroom filling, topped with sauteed crunchy shallots, kale, and toasted brazil nuts. These pasta pockets can be made and frozen, so you can whip them up whenever the cravings start calling. No more boring mid-week meals for you!

Sticky sweet butternut rolls must be the perfect start to 2019. Let me be very honest here, we didn't even make the new year. We passed out around ten and slept through the whole thing, I guess life does change after kids, or are there some diehard parents out there? I celebrated the new year by making these delish sticky butternut rolls. They are completely gluten-free (if you like), vegan and a big favorite side dish of mine. That's my way of celebrating the new year, lots of comfort food!

Super spinach falafel bowls are coming to my rescue this week. It has been a week post vacation and while winter is in full swing I haven't gotten the hang of the cold just yet. Neither has my son, and he is not a happy camper when the flu bug has gotten a hold of him. This ever so nourishing bowl was absolutely delish and I have fallen in love with these super easy falafels.

Creamy candied apple melkkos needs no introduction. This recipe like the multiple other South African recipes, nostalgic. It's like the rain pouring outside and the smell of the rain hitting the dry ground. The cinnamon taste with this creamy porridge/dessert just takes me back. I love the fact that you can have this breakfast/dessert either way.

Caramelized Butternut Shallot lasagne is perfect for a Sunday lunch or dinner options. It stores pretty well too for a leftover alternative and fills all the holes and gaps for comfort food goodness that the winter creates. Not only is it so easy to prepare, but also a budget saver. This lasagne can go pretty far with a whole roasted butternut, couple slices of whole wheat pasta sheets and creamy bearnaise sauce.

Broccoli quinoa corn patties are a quick lunch alternative when you're on the go. Loaded with plant-based protein and super filling for those days when you need it the most. Serve with a salad, healthy carbs or as a patty on a vegan burger bun. I made a whole batch of these and froze the rest to eat later. It's a win-win, healthy plus easy is what I need right now.
