Crispy tempeh with nut butter

I love tempeh! It has a lovely, nutty flavor, it is an easily absorbed source of protein and it is a natural probiotic (as it is fermented – this is also true of the ingredient, tamari). I like to serve this recipe with fried rice, pasta or stir-fried vegetables. Grilled tempeh saté (with peanut sauce) is also... Read more

Sweet potato puree

Just like pumpkin puree, this is precisely the kind of foundation recipe that I like to keep on hand in the fridge or freezer. What do I use it for? Cakes, muffins, soups, spreads, smoothies? What don’t I add it to? ; ) It adds a delicious hint of sweetness and creaminess to so many recipes! Love... Read more

Vegan Parmesan Cheese

This ‘cheese’ really does taste like Parmesan cheese, but it’s completely dairy free. It’s a great alternative if you, like me, are trying to eat as plant-based as possible or are lactose intolerant. It’s tasty in salads, as a topping for soup, pizza, pasta or as a spread on a cracker or slice of bread. The... Read more

Crunchy chickpeas

Seasoning chickpeas and baking them in the oven until they’re crispy transforms them into a surprisingly tasty snack. They’re a healthy alternative to chips or salted peanuts. They also make a tasty topping for soup or salads, if you ask... Read more

Tofu dip

I’ve recently become a big fan of this delicious, easy recipe. You can add it to so many different dishes. This is the basic recipe, but if you’re looking to spice things up a bit you can always add a bit of curry powder. Fresh dill is also an excellent option with (sweet) potato and parsnip fries. Try it and let... Read more

Chocospread

Healthy guilty pleasure! Cacao powder is a true must-have in your kitchen cabinet. It is a key ingredient in so many delicious recipes and it really is good for you. Make a nice big jar of this chocospread and put it on a cracker or use it as a topping for a slice of banana bread.... Read more

Maple Tahini Spread

Yumm! The creamy spread pairs well with various flavours and textures. The pure maple syrup adds a nice subtle maple flavour to the spread. If you don't necessarily love maple, you can add in honey instead. Honey will bring a nice floral sweetness. It tastes great on crackers. Also good with peanutbutter :) ... Read more

Coconut cream

For all the whipped-cream lovers out there who, rightly, always do without, this guilt-free option is your solution. I always make a dish of it with breakfast cookies, muffins and... Read more

Rawnola

Last week I made raw granola for the very first time. Wow, was it ever good! So sweet and chewy. I love it as a snack, but I also use it as a topping for my smoothie bowls and nice creams (banana ice cream). This ‘rawnola’ could also be used as the crust for a cheesecake. How handy is... Read more

Cashew cream

I really do add this cream to just about every recipe… On a salad as dressing, in a soup or as a dip. You can spice it up with herbs and spices or even fruit... Read more

Red pesto

That’s hot! This red pesto is made with sundried tomato and a red chili pepper. What I love about pesto is not only that you can incorporate it into any number of dishes and salads, but you can also just spread it onto a cracker. This red pesto is my new favorite, second only to the classic green... Read more

Kale pesto

Do you guys still remember my recipe for ‘old skool’ pesto? I came up with it two years ago, back when my first cookbook came out (time flies when you’re powercooking!). I’m still crazy about toppings and dressings and this pesto has remained one of my favorites. Every Sunday I make a new batch to get me... Read more

Sunny Spread

Some people enjoy this weather and love being able to cocoon themselves in their cozy homes, but I always need to acclimatize to winter. It’s been even more difficult to adjust now that I’m back from my travels to places where it was 30-plus degrees every day. But what I really miss is a daily dose of sunlight.... Read more

Pumpkin Purée

Pumpkin puree forms the basis of many of my recipes. Up until few years ago, I really only used it in Thanksgiving dishes and for Christmas recipes, but these days I add it to just about everything like my almond-pumpkin bread, spicy pumpkin smoothie, pumpkin muffins and my pumpkin-spice granola. It adds a... Read more
