Cilantro Lime Quinoa with Cashews

 Cilantro is one of those things that you either love or you hate. Obviously I am on the loving it side as I use it in so many of my recipes. Cilantro and lime is a great pairing, and one of my many favorites. This is a very simple dish […]

Blueberry Salsa

 I found some fresh blueberries in the store, and I didn’t have to sell a body part to buy them! Blueberries are very versatile, as they go well with either a sweet or a savory dish! I was surprised how well it paired with the cilantro and jalapenos. It reminded […]

Garden Hummus

  I found out about Ergogenics through Instagram around month ago. What drew me to Ergogenics was that they are a local British Columbia based company, and they make plant-based protein powders! Not only do they make protein powders, they also make whole plant-based greens, and that’s what I used today. […]

 If you need a sauce base for your cooking, a Sofrito is the way to go. Sofrito is a Puerto Rican sauce that is a combination of cilantro, garlic, onions and a variety of peppers. It’s a base for many recipes and it tastes amazing! I will be using this […]

Hunan Kung Pao

Warm Zucchini Salad with Peanut Sauce

 I have found my new favorite lunch! It’s easy to make and full of flavor. The veggies still have a slight crunch and pair well with this creamy peanut sauce. After spiralizing the zucchini and carrots, simply combine the sauce ingredients and cook over medium heat. Once it’s cooked, remove […]
