Easy Vegan Kale Caesar Salad

Once upon a time last year, I have tried a vegan Caesar salad at a vegetarian restaurant that I couldn’t simply forget. Lacinato kale, beet chips and cornbread croutons. Hearty, crunchy and with zesty garlicky dressing. It was mind blowing! Upon coming home I googled for a similar recipe and couldn’t find any without calling for soaking cashews or using chickpeas. Just too much work to my liking, I need easy vegan kale Caesar salad and I need it now. I even emailed the restaurant asking for recipe…

Healthy Corn Fritters with Vegetables

Vegetables fritters is one of the easiest and budget friendly vegetarian meals! Yellow, chunky and thick, these cakes have been on my mind ever since I saw them on the Kitchn. But I was craving a texture and taste of healthy corn flitters without flour. You know when you bite or tear a piece of, it breaks. That one. I make vegetarian fritters all the time, just haven’t had a chance to remake them since testing. I have cabbage and cauliflower fritters on my “to post list”. I would love to hear…

Lemony Kale Pasta with Asparagus

Zesty and garlicky kale has been on my mind ever since I had vegan kale Caesar salad at Heirloom restaurant in Vancouver last December. OMG, I just can’t stop thinking of that flavour! Of course restaurant refused to share recipe with me (what, are they crazy?!) and I have been recreating my own versions of it for nearly 6 months and I did it => vegan kale Caesar salad. It doesn’t contain roasted chickpeas or a bazillion salad dressing ingredients, I promise.

I LOVE salads! Everyone who knows me in person knows that. I always get asked to bring salads to any gathering. You should love salads too – often cheap, fridge cleaning and waist friendly (if you don’t add a cup of mayo or ranch dressing). This post was so much fun as I don’t remember last time I got to sit on a couch, browse recipes, look at pretty food and just copy paste titles and links all day long. I have included only healthy superfood salad recipes for…

Creamy Kale Salad

I have deep love and respect for kale! We eat it pretty much every day, in a form of sweet kale salad recipe or lemony kale pasta (including kids – a 4 year old tolerates it only in smoothies but I will take it for now). Ever since we got a serious health condition in our immediate family (I might be able OK to talk about it one day), my love for kale has deepened even more! Kale is a powerful remedy against cancer: In addition to providing a truckload of vitamins and…

Clean Eating Nacho Kale and Black Bean Bake

This bake is a 30 minute recipe! Vegetarian, cheap and easy. I made this casserole on Sunday night after a day of cleaning and a family walk to a neighbourhood store. I was too tired to cook but was craving greens and veggies for a lighter dinner. 

Sweet Kale Salad Recipe

You know that salad kit with kale, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries and poppyseed dressing everyone raves about?! I have heard about it from my friends, neighbours, sister in law; seen it on Instagram etc. OK, so I found it at the grocery store, automatically turned around to read the ingredients list and. I don’t want to sound pessimistic but I was short of being impressed.

Delicious Green Smoothie Recipe

Or how to make delicious green smoothie recipe that kids will actually drink. I’m not saying my kids prefer this green smoothie to candy but rather like it and do not object it every other day. And that’s good enough for me. Typical North American diet is full of meat and dairy products which increases acidity of your blood. In turn, it can lead to liver and kidney disease and unfortunately cancer. Dark leafy greens and other green vegetables help to reduce that acidity and guard from many other diseases,…
