Vegan Creamy Herb Salad Dressing

A salad needs to be dressed to impress! Before I went plant-based I made the most delicious creamy herb salad dressing made with cream cheese. With summer in full swing it means a lot more salads on the lunch and dinner table, so a non-dairy salad dressing is vital to...

Healthy Tomato Sauce

When you think hot chips, you think tomato sauce, right? Hot chips and tomato sauce (or fries and ketchup) go hand-in-hand, so when you perfect the recipe for polenta chips, you know you have to take it one step further and make homemade tomato sauce. A follower of...

Beetroot Hummus Dip

I thought the taste of beetroot would overpower the flavours of the classic hummus, but my boys and I agree we much prefer the slightly sweeter taste of beetroot hummus. The hot pink colour makes a bright addition to any plate or rainbow bowl, and is a delicious...

Classic Hummus

In their earlier years, the only way I could encourage my boys to eat raw vegetables was to serve cucumber and carrot sticks with a big dollop of hummus on their plate. It was getting costly, so I started making my own hummus, and later, my own tahini. There is always...

I can never wait for the avocado season to start. When avos are in abundance I whip up this quick 'n easy creamy avo dip and use it on almost everything!  It is awesome spread on toast or crackers, topped on pizza, stirred into a veggie dish; or as a dip for crudites,...

Macadamia Nut Butter

  Do you want to know my secret to making a delicious nut butter? Toasting or roasting the nuts before blending will add depth to both the texture and the flavour. The other handy tip, add a teaspoon of coconut oil to the mix to get it to blend into a smooth butter...

Cashew Cream Cheese

If you're vegan or dairy intolerant, or just enjoy delicious cream cheese like I do, then this one is for you! This tangy, smooth cream cheese is perfect for lasagna, over cauliflower & broccoli bake, or as a dip for raw veggies; or if you're like me, straight up on a...
