I eat a lot of chickpeas. Some would say too much, but not me. I love chickpeas, like, a lot! Chickpeas are probably my favourite protein next to lentils. I don't think this whole plant-based-diet undertaking would be the same if chickpeas did not exist. The great thing about chickpeas, besides being a good source [...]

One of the things I miss about summers are tomatoes; lush, juicy, plump, just-off-the-vine and bursting with flavour tomatoes, there is nothing quite like it. The sombre grey clouds and rain make it easy to long for summer tomatoes, but I do love the calm this time of year offers, there's cool gentleness to autumn [...]

Really, the title of this post should be harissa roasted sweet potatoes, wild rice, arugula and lemony tahini dressing with marmite cashews, because these are the components in this delightful fall time salad, but obviously that is too long a title. Sweet potatoes, harissa, tahini, lemons, wild rice, cashews...all together sounds a tad complicated but [...]

I must admit, and maybe it's the clean crisp autumn air and foliage, but it takes me a while to get into the swing of seasonal cooking in the fall, all I really want to do is to go for long walks and sleep when the cold weather hits. Sure, I'll manage to scrounge up [...]
