High (Vegan) Protein Lettuce Wraps

Most of today was overcast and cool. I shopped in the village happy there were no line-ups at the grocery store;  in and out in 20 minutes.  It rained lightly through the afternoon then the sun appeared while I prepped dinner and enjoyed a Pineapple Moscow Mule my husband made me.  It’s always cocktail hour somewhere…

Moroccan Lentil “Lamb Pops” With Couscous Salad (Vegan)

  “We travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us.”  I’m in the kitchen when the 7pm cheering starts.  We honour and thank our healthcare and front line workers everyday.  First the horns sound off from Canada Place and then the city echoes with the sound of pots and pans, whistles, claps and…

Broccoli Veggie Stir-Fry With Cashews

Vegan Mushroom Spinach Stroganoff (On Pappardelle)

We’ve been waiting for the rain to come for 3 days and every morning the Weather Network changes it’s story;  rain coming tomorrow.  Today is Sunday, 9:44pm.  The city sparkles in the dark night.  I’m sitting at our bedroom window atop a pile of pillows, laptop resting on the window sill and the wind coming…

My (Vegan) Version Of Zuppa Toscana.

Flipping through my recipe books that I got for Christmas today, I came across this delicious soup.  A classic Tuscan Winter dish, it’s loaded with potatoes and hearty sausage. Just because I cook vegan doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy this seriously cozy meal. With a few small tweaks, I created a just-as-hearty Zuppa Toscana with…
