Eggplant butter bean stew

Eggplant butter bean stew is the perfect in-between season's dish. It's super creamy, filling, and loaded with so many flavors and textures. Slightly less sunny days on the horizon, layers of clothing, and cozy evenings lead to a warming bowl of plant-based deliciousness. This is the perfect dish!!

Vegetable pot pie

Vegetable pot pie with chive biscuits is the ultimate one-pot dish. It's so comforting and super filling, two of my favorite things when you need the best of both worlds. The crispy chive biscuits ontop elevate this dish to another level if you'd rather like something simple go for flakes puff pastry biscuits instead, but I vouch for the homemade route!

Spicy beans on samp

Spicy beans on samp are the ultimate comfort food for me right now. Samp is such a needed item in every South African household. I recently started to use it more often for side dishes to a braai. I even paired it with a tangy tomato sauce to accompany this hearty starchy meal as part of a plant-based dinner or light lunch. What's even more wonderful about this dish is that you can make a huge batch for a big crowd or even for your week meal prep.

Tangy Lentil pumpkin Bobotie

Tangy Lentil pumpkin Bobotie is a must-make recipe for veggie lovers and meat-lover alike. This recipe is one that I have been making so many times over the couple of years that I have lost count. Normally it's made with meat, but in this case, I added brown lentils that work even better, because it makes it super starchy and a plant-based protein powerhouse meal to boot.

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.

Miso roasted carrot butternut soup

Miso Roasted carrot butternut soup is such an amazing twist to a classic butternut soup. I have fallen in love with white miso paste. I have recently tried it for the first time, where was I you might ask? hiding under a rock or something, but this paste honestly is so so good! it's subtile, adds a bit of sweetness and unami to the soup. Especially with the gomasio sprinkle and the other toppings, this soup is the bomb!

Parsnip pumpkin soup sourdough pesto granola

Pumpkin parsnip soup pesto sourdough granola is all I need right now. Hello new week, and spring where have you gone once again? This soup, granola and the whole deal will go down pretty well right now!! This weekend has been super hectic, as all vacations are when kids are involved and a new country, new living arrangement and the weather acting up. So souping it up and adding a whole lot of crunch is sooo needed!

Rocket miso pesto butter Semolina

Rocket miso pesto butter Semolina with roasted tomatoes is such a beautiful dish. It took no more than twenty minutes to make this whole complete dish that can be enjoyed all on it's own or as a side dish for the festive season ahead. The cherry vine tomatoes are sweet and tangy perfect with the creaminess of the semolina.
