Vegan Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake (Gluten-Free, No-Bake)

Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake (Gluten-Free) Perhaps this isn’t exactly a most-welcome treat for the fat-phobic, as it is loaded with fats–fatty goodness, that is–the benign, good-for-your heart MUFA and PUFA (mono and poly-unsaturated) fats. With all the cashews, almonds, pecans, and avocado oil, you can almost literally go nuts with this not-so-skinny deal! But we love […]

Beets ‘n’ Bean Veggie Burger (Vegan)

My love for exploring the world of veggie burgers is a culinary adventure in itself–a practical kind of navigation, that is. The practicality of making/eating veggie burgers comes in two ways: first, I always happen to stumble upon new veggie burger recipes in my kitchen when I am trying to be a little more creative […]

Spicy Vegan Nacho Cheesy Kale Chips

    So some like it hot–and maybe a wee bit cheesy… but also healthy–and crispy. While this may seem like a rare combination, I could swear that these nacho-esque cheesy vegan kale chips are the best thing that has ever happened in my kitchen (or at least, that’s what my husband thinks!) This is […]

Pescetarian Dream: Salmon and Egg White Breakfast Burger

  Yep, even healthy eaters can enjoy burgers for breakfast–But of course, I don’t mean the artery-clogging piece of grease sandwiched between 2 slabs of even more grease. A good breakfast burger certainly does not need all that extra trans fat to become edible. This salmon and egg white burger naturally contains all the good Omega 3 fats and proteins […]

Salmon Cakes (with a side of beetroot sauce)

As the old proverb goes, “Necessity is the mother of invention”, and I cannot but agree–this is how the best recipes are usually born: from leftovers. There is really no better way of dealing with leftover salmon flakes than to make fishcakes with them. Now I may as well dub this recipe as one that is […]

Fish & Chips Our Way: Yes, Baked.

    Too good to be true. But fortunately, it is as real as any KFC, fish ‘n’ chips, or fried/ broasted food lover would wish for it to be. We certainly enjoy a good fish and chips meal at some good pubs during our stay here in the UK, but the guilt/ heartburn/ indigestion […]

Grillable Vegan Sausages (non-soy!)

    Calling all vegans! And vegetarians. Or just about anyone. “Frankly” speaking, these are seriously good. I mean, really really really delish. And 100% vegan (no soy involved–despite the surging popularity of soy “meat alternatives”), with a delicious, smokey aroma and  chewy texture. Come to think of it, this is actually the best thing to […]

(Naturally) Yellow Popcorn–the works!

Kids love the popcorn’s bright, yellow color–which happens to be a natural consequence of a great anti-inflammatory. But this delicious, simple snack is not only limited to children–this little twist in popcorn is to be enjoyed by everyone. If you haven’t guessed the secret ingredient behind the yellow glow, then I’ll let you in on this one: […]

Hail the Kale…Chips!

Superfood! Yummier than potato chips. More vitamin C than an orange. A plant source for Omega 3 (alpha linoleic acid). More vitamin A than anything green on the planet. More calcium in 100g than an equivalent amount of milk. And it’s plain delicious… I wouldn’t call it an alternative to potato chips, as it is […]

Dense in nutrients and incredibly light. It’s quite simple to make, and it can be enjoyed by everyone in the family, including a pre-teething baby! What I love most […]
