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!

Sweet Potato Waffles

Well, these are kind of my faves.  My family goes crazy for them, and they are requested multiple times per week.  It's awesome too, because they are so darn healthy that I don't mind accommodating the requests at all.  We eat them for breakfast, lunch and supper...often.  The amount of sweet potato I use varies greatly, depending on the size of sweet potato I'm using, or what I happen to have on hand.  I've used anywhere from 2-5 cups of sweet potatoes (cooked) and always get awesome results.  I started out using 1/2 a large sweet potato per batch, but lately I use the whole thing and they turn out the same as far as cooking time and consistency, I just get the satisfaction of knowing I'm packing more nutrients into each waffle and the batter ends up stretching farther and tasting a little more sweet and flavourful.  BONUS!
So here's how it's done... Combine sweet potato, apple sauce, plant based milk & honey in a high speed blender.

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 …

Hickory-Maple Smoked Chili

As much as I hate to admit it, it's still winter up here in Canada 😕.  My kids are having a blast on our very own personal snowboarding hill that my husband built in the front yard...but...I'm DONE WITH SNOW!!! 😩  I hate the terrible highway conditions and the black ice, and the drifts, and the whiteouts, and just the overall COLD!  {Sigh...}


I can however take comfort in the kitchen though.  My very favourite part of winter is the soul warming food...soups, warm drinks, fresh breads, and all that good stuff.  Today I'm bringing you a Chili, and the Crumb-Free Corn Bread I serve with it.  This chili is pretty awesome, despite how brown and mushy it looks.  Man, I never realized how ugly chili was until I tried to take pictures of it.  It really isn't a very photogenic food, but I promise you, it's delicious!  As the name implies, it's got a tinge of maple flavour, and some hickory liquid smoke, the perfect blend in my opinion.  As usual, this chili is also pa…
