This recipe is amazing served on a cheese platter or alongside chicken or pork. It adds a savoury sweet zip that really elevates other foods.

Tricolour Potato Vindaloo Turnovers

Tricolour Potato Vindaloo Turnovers

Crafted with love with my mother, this Goan inspired recipe may look daunting, but it is in fact actually quite simple and very versatile – especially if using store bought vindaloo paste and/or pre-made pizza dough or phyllo. For an adventure, add your own favourite spices to the paste along with additional veggies, meat or eggs to the filling!

Maple Glazed Blueberry Scones

Maple Glazed Blueberry Scones

Nevermind traditional bland blueberry scones….these take it up a notch with warm spices of cinnamon and nutmeg and drizzled with a glaze made with sweet real Canadian maple syrup.

Marinated Fava Beans

Marinated Fava Beans

Fresh fava beans marinated with dill and caraway make for a great recipe to add to your next spring mezze platter or cheese board.

Raw Turmeric Donuts

Raw Turmeric Donuts

When I wanted something delicious but still nourishing and anti-inflammatory, I created this recipe. These “donuts” are extra sneaky because they are raw and contain the superfood turmeric. While the melted vegan chocolate makes these extra yummy, try them without: they are still amazing, and 100% raw vegan without it!

Strawberry Farmer’s Cheese Dumplings

Strawberry Farmer’s Cheese Dumplings

Fruit dumplings are popular throughout Central Europe, but this recipe is different than others in that it is made with farmer’s cheese. Strawberry dumplings are our family’s favorite, but this recipe can be used with Italian prune plums or small apricots. Though many would see this as a dessert, and it could be, these are more traditionally eaten at lunch. The best farmer’s cheese for this recipe is one that resembles feta, though if only a “pot style” farmer’s cheese is available, a little more flour could be added to make it work. For lunch, it serves two. For dessert, it could serve four.
