Lentil Walnut-Apple Burgers topped with “Almonnaise”

Fourth of July and Canada Day (July 1st) seem to launch summer – the food, the picnics, BBQs, and kids breaking from school. For us, summer essentially started two weeks ago. Our teachers went on strike, so the kids abruptly left school two weeks early. Our girls will be going into grades 8, 5, and… Continue Reading

Impromptu Post: Gimme Chimis with Guacamole Con Alga Marina!

I’m sitting at my computer early on a Sunday morning catching up on emails. As it’s Father’s Day, I’m also thinking about what special meal I might make for dinner tonight. Hubby has some definite favorites, including these burgers. Oh and these burgers – okay, most burgers! But he loves any hearty meal that is… Continue Reading

Artichoke and White Bean Dip

  Ever taste something, love it, and later discover that it contained an ingredient that you were pretty darn sure you didn’t like? If you’re a parent, you may have intentionally done this to ‘sneak’ in a particular food with your kiddos. But, ever have the experience where it happens naturally? Just serving the food… Continue Reading

Recipe: Spinach Herb Pistachio Pesto

Summer is winding down. Already I’m feeling blue! I’m a summer girl, so it’s hard for me to say farewell to the warm weather – SUNSHINE (vitamin D!) – abundant summer fruits and vegetables – and herbs. One of my cold-weather coping mechanisms is to batch and freeze pesto at the end of summer… for… Continue Reading

Vegan Travel Tips, My Trip To Newfoundland, and Hummus Recipes!

If I’ve seemed a little distant the past few weeks, it’s because I was – literally. We took a family trip back to Newfoundland to visit family with our girls. The last time we visited was 6 years ago, before our youngest was born. It’s a day-long trip with a 4 1/2 hour time difference. Some… Continue Reading

Pumpkincredible Hummus

Here it is, my last Pumpkinfest post.  I’ve posted quite a few sweet pumpkin recipes, so thought I’d deliver a savory recipe to give the Pumpkin Chickpea Cauliflower Curry some company. What’s a month without hummus?  Really, can I go one month without posting – or at least talking about – hummus?  I have made… Continue Reading

Marinated and Roasted Tomato Garlic Hummus (oil-free)

Dreena’s my name.  Hummus is my game. Hummus purists beware, I am taking liberties with this classic dip once again.  We’ve all had roasted red pepper hummus – at least I think most of us have, right?  And, many of us have had roasted garlic in hummus.  But, what a hummus made with this: A… Continue Reading

Curried Chickpea Hummus with Raisins

I am not a hummus purist. If you have ed&bv (with its full chapter on hummus), you know this.  In my world, hummus is a food group. So, why not have some fun with it?  Use different beans, different nut/seed butters, and different seasonings?  A perfect example of taking hummus in a new direction is… Continue Reading
