Vegan Brunch in Vancouver: Bandidas Taqueria

Vancouverites take their brunching VERY seriously. The array of mid-day bites in this city, usually paired with a Mimosa or a Caesar, are plenty and top notch. For us vegans, the options are growing rapidly, but there are a few pioneers that have been doing it right for years now, and should not be overlooked. Continue Reading …

Slow Cooker Banana Chia Oatmeal

This recipe is my take on a recipe I found at thelemonbowl.com, which blew my mind! As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve never been one for a sweet breakfast, and certainly not Oatmeal, which is how this Savoury Breakfast Oatmeal Risotto was birthed. But when this recipe pointed out the obvious fact that I could prepare my oatmeal Continue Reading …

Blueberry Lemon Scones

Tea time isn’t complete without flakey, buttery, crispy-on-the-outside and pillowy soft on the inside, scones. Now you might think you said goodbye to these (surprisingly easy-to-make) pastries when you went vegan, but I’m here to tell you that these Blueberry Lemon Scones meet all the above requirements and I defy anyone to call them out Continue Reading …

Breakfast Quinoa

I’m not much a sweets person, but this dry and cold weather lately has me craving some stick-to-your-ribs hot cereal to warm my belly. Jay’s stepdad Ralph turned us on to sweet quinoa a while back, so I took it a step further with fruits, ginger and spices, and the result is a delicious and Continue Reading …

Vegan French Toast

I finally made Vegan French Toast using The Vegg! It is by far one of the best vegan egg substitutes I’ve used to date. It even smells like eggs (kinda like a fart, but in a good way!). I followed the simple instructions on the package and the result was the crispy-on-the-outside savoury/sweet goodness of Continue Reading …

Breakfast Burrito from [in the oven] bakery!

We love two things. Breakfasts and burritos. It only made sense to combine the two to create an amazing taste sensation. Of course, we had to make sure we were packing it full of goodness and flavor. After some careful thought we created perfection. It combined our own recipe for Sweet Potato Hash, Isa Chandra’s Continue Reading …

Veggy Soldiers with The Vegg!

WOW!  I have not been this impressed with a vegan substitute in a while.  The World’s First Vegan Egg Yolk, The Vegg, is something special.  I was searching the web, looking for the best way to prepare my first taste of this vegan marvel, and came across this idea for Veggy Soldiers and this video by Veggietorials, explaining Continue Reading …

Savoury Breakfast Oatmeal Risotto

Okay, okay, I know you’re thinking WHAT?!  But in all honesty, this was a killer breakfast, very filling and solved one of my biggest dietary dilemmas…I don’t like oatmeal.

Super Greens Breakfast with Cashew Ricotta (Gluten Free)

After working our butts off this past week to get ready for our workshop yesterday, Bridget and I were both exhausted and I came home and slept. I awoke this morning refreshed and bursting with appetite. Inspired by Bridget’s Greens on Toast, featured previously in our blog, I decided to use the gluten free buns Continue Reading …

Vegan Turkish Breakfast

While I’ve never been to Turkey, I’ve always enjoyed a Turkish-style breakfast.  Even before I was vegan or knew what a Turkish breakfast might be like I was enjoying a hard-boiled egg, toast, cold veggies and olives or capers in the morning.
