Peanut Butter Rice with Cruciferous Vegetables

On Saturday I missed farmers market because we went hiking on Mount Baker again. It was our dear Calgary friends’ last day in Vancouver so we wanted to make it memorable. Plus Alex just got back from Israel after one of the most stressful weeks of his life (see peanut butter protein pancakes). He wanted a breath of fresh air and to resume normal life ASAP. These two reasons were worth missing piles of cabbage, cauliflower and potatoes. I decided to catch up shopping at my grocery store’s organic…

Chicken Zucchini Noodles with Pesto

So, I finally gave in and got a spiralizer before Christmas. We do gifts for ourselves. Next on the list is a trip to Lululemon. I haven’t bought a piece of clothing for myself since August. After months and months of debating whether I need another kitchen gadget and liking all hand spiralizers so-so, I saw a countertop spiralizer at my grocery store for $25. That, my American friends, is a BIG DEAL because in Canada everything is so much more expensive and harder to find than in the US.

Bok Choy Noodle Bowl with Tofu

This bok choy noodle bowl started out as an idea I got from the latest Cooking Light issue on a flight back home from vacation last week. I turned this light side dish into a main meal – salad/bowl that is vegan and gluten free. I thought it was simply genius to shred the bok choy into pieces. At the end of the day it’s Chinese cabbage, so why not?! Baby bok choy or large bok choy work.

Scrambled Tofu Eggs

I’m in love with my scrambled tofu eggs! They are fluffy, moist and you would never guess they are made with tofu. And please, listen to me, don’t judge the book by its cover. Don’t be like my friend Christi, who called me judgemental. Last Saturday, Christi had us over for dinner (the one that makes BBQ ribs and Pavlova dessert) and I was telling her about my new recipe. So, I said “Last night I made the most delicious “eggs” without eggs but I don’t think they…
