Mango Black Beans

Back there is a no-gluten penne with orange cauliflower, grilled red pepper, baked squash, and asparagus tossed with olive oil and tarragon, my go-to herb of the month. In the front, saucy beans served over brown rice. From The Vegan Slow Cooker by Kathy Hester except I switched around proportions to increase spice and reduce […]

Mushroom Risotto

So this is where we ended up: sweet potato, lobster-mushroom risotto, herbed veggies (tarragon, herb de provence and dried fennel), and the mystery starch. The mystery starch is this. Eddoes are a Caribbean tuber that has more flavour than most white potatoes. It isn’t always in the stores but is fairly cheap when it arrives. […]

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies wet: 1 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar 1/2 cup olive oil 6 Tbsp sweetened vanilla almond […]

Polenta and Broccolini

Apparently polenta is the end product and any cornmeal or semolina can get you there so somewhere around this fancy mushroom polenta is this broccolini polenta: polenta: 1 cup veg stock (I used herb bouillon curbs) 1/2 cup […]
