Creamy Tomato Tofu Soup

This tomato soup is my trusted fail-proof recipe that never disappoints. I first had at my Mother-in-Law’s and have been cooking it ever since. The original recipe did not have tofu, but since this soup is a staple with my children, I added tofu for more nutritional value.

Easy Fish Dish

This is one of my go-to saucy fish recipes and the key here is the word EASY. Any fish filet will do, but I prefer it with basa or tilapia. You will have it whipped up in no time and even the pickiest of eaters will enjoy this dish. img_5576I use regular mayonnaise as the base for the sauce, but feel free to use low-fat one if you want to make it a bit more calorie-friendly (and there is no reason for vegan mayo not to work as well).

Buffalo Cauliflower ‘Wings’ with Ranch Dip

Chicken wings are firmly on my list of favourite foods, spicy buffalo ones occupying the top spot. This recipe is a vegetarian version of them.

So good!

I was inspired to cook up something like this after my recent visit to Ottawa’s Pure Kitchen which serves amazing cauliflower wings (I fell in love at the first bite). After browsing the internet and a few stabs at the recipe, here is what I came up with and it is very good, if I say so myself. Continue reading “Buffalo Cauliflower ‘Wings’ with Ranch Dip”

Cheese and Charcuterie Board

Cheese boards rock my world, so yesterday when we had guests over for dinner, I decided to prepare a Cheese and Charcuterie board, adding some lovely Proscuitto, Coppa di Parma and Genoa Salami to the mix.

Curried Tofu with Cauliflower and Chickpeas

I love tofu and can actually eat strait out of package, but am always on a lookout for a new recipe. I had some cauliflower and a can of chickpeas kicking around and decided to add mix it all with some curry and see what happens.

Beet Leaf Rolls with Mushroom Sauce

This dish is inspired by a post from another blog, the one that belongs to the fabulous Jillian Harris. I have seen her beet rolls recipe quite awhile ago and was reminded of it recently when browsing the stalls of the local farmers’ market.

Served with a side of tomato-cucumber-avocado salad

I used the actual beets for borscht and was left with all those gorgeous leaves that I could not make myself throw away. Some of them got shredded and added to borscht and the rest became beet rolls. This recipe seems a bit odd at first as you are wrapping yeast dough into beet leaves and baking it, but the result is simply delicious! Creamy mushroom sauce adds another level of flavour to this tasty dish and it is great as leftovers as well. I will definitely be adding it to my regular meal rotation.
