Garden Veggie Dip


This dip is amazingly delicious and can be made in 5 minutes.  It's also sugar-free, oil-free, dairy-free and entirely plant based.  I love it because it helps me use up my leftovers.  One of the staples at our house recently has been Cashew Cream.  I LOVE it, but I don't ever like it to sit in my fridge for more than 5 (ish) days.  Today I decided I needed to use it up, so I made this veggie dip out of my leftovers.  I like the recipe from Oh She Glows.  So, for my Garden Veggie Dip, I just used 1 cup of Cashew Cream and added a few spices.  I recommend letting it chill in the fridge for an hour to allow the flavours to blend, but we also eat it right away and it's still delicious!  Easy breezy.  Here's the recipe...

Enjoy!

Chocolate Almond Truffles

If you're looking for a rich, creamy, decadent dessert, that is also quick, easy, and only has 5 ingredients (all of which you'll likely have on hand right now), please allow me to be your new best friend.  These truffles are vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free, and have a rich dark chocolate taste that you can indulge in guilt-free.  Although the title says they're almond flavoured, you really can make these truffles whatever flavour you'd like.  I've done peppermint, vanilla, orange...whatever suits your fancy / craving.  I've also rolled them in crushed nuts instead of coconut, but coconut remains my personal favourite.

So to begin, line a small bread board or baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Toast your coconut over medium heat until lightly browned and aromatic (around 5 mins), stirring frequently.


Transfer the coconut to a small plate to cool as you mix together your truffle ingredients.
Next, combine the cocoa powder, full fat coconut …

"Cheesy" Italian Pizza Buns

These Pizza Buns save my sanity Every. Single. Day.  I make them every 2.5 - 3 weeks, and it keeps me from having to make sandwiches every day for my 3 school aged kids.  Life Saver, I'm tellin' ya.  I've been making them for close to 5 years now, and I'm still going strong, because it really is soooo worth it.  I just store them in the freezer, and pop a few out every morning (or put some in the fridge the night before) as needed.

For a long time I made these pizza buns with regular all purpose flour, which admittedly works great, and results in larger, puffier Pizza Buns...but as I'm trying to steer clear of refined flour these days, I've been making them lately with my own ground whole wheat (I use hard white wheat).


After you've ground your wheat, measure and dump all the dough ingredients into the inner compartment of a bread machine.


Select the dough setting, and press start.  My machine takes about 2 hours to complete the dough cycle, and ends up lo…

Sourdough Pancakes

These whole wheat, sourdough pancakes are pretty legit.  I especially love the tanginess that the natural yeast adds.  This is a great option to incorporate into your breakfast rotation.  We have a Saturday morning pancake tradition at our house, so it's nice to have a few different options to mix things up a bit.  These were a hit, and as a bonus, they're oil-free, sugar-free, nut free (if you use rice milk rather than a nut milk), entirely whole wheat, and plant based....AND...super fast and easy to whip up.


First off, combine your bananas, applesauce, plant milk, dates, natural yeast and vanilla in a high speed blender and mix.  Oops, I forgot to include the vanilla in this picture apparently, but you get the idea.

Whisk together your dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and salt) in a large bowl.


Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and whisk together until well combined.



On an electric pancake griddle preheated to 375 degrees, ladle batter onto the grill.  I use ju…
