Japanese Cucumber Salad

This is a delicately crunchy, deliciously tangy salad with Japanese-inspired flavors. I’m normally not a fan of cucumbers, but when they’re so thinly sliced and lovingly dressed, I will happily eat them anytime!

Overnight Oats (plant-based, gluten-free)

All you have to do is spend 5 minutes the night before putting 6 things into a jar. You can top your overnight oats with any fruit you have around the house.

Detox Smoothie (plant-based, gluten-free)

A wonderful collection of superfoods that can clean out toxins from the body and leave the mind full of positive energy.

Spinach Potato Soup (plant-based, gluten-free)

The bright green of this creamy spinach potato soup makes me very happy. I can eat a big bowl of this for dinner on its own, but you could also have it as a side dish for something else.

Baked Cauliflower Alfredo (plant-based, gluten-free)

In Britain this baked cauliflower alfredo is called “cauliflower cheese”, and wherever you are it’s a tasty way to get your veggies.

Grandma’s Date Squares (plant-based, gluten-free)

The crumble topping in this recipe is my Grandma’s creation. We couldn’t decide whether to use it for apple crumble or date squares, so we whipped up a double batch of topping and made both desserts!

Garlicky Kale Chips (plant-based, gluten-free)

Homemade kale chips are an easy way to get everyone to eat their greens. These ones are dressed in garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.

Apricot Paska Buns (plant-based)

In Mennonite communities, Easter paska is a special treat – kids look forward to this sweet iced bread from Oma’s oven.

Cauliflower Tikka Masala (plant-based, gluten-free)

We love the creamy curry-ness of a good chicken tikka, but now we’re eating more of a plant-based diet. What to do? Fortunately Jamie came to the rescue with the inspiration for this cauliflower tikka masala recipe.

Oatmeal Soda Bread (plant-based, gluten-free)

Since I went gluten-free, I’ve been missing a good, hearty loaf of bread. I grew up eating bread every day, and this oatmeal soda bread is saving me!

Oatmeal Raisin Bites (plant-based, gluten-free)

These oatmeal raisin bites are plant-based, gluten-free, with no refined sugar, and they’re a wonderfully delicious treat to keep in the freezer and grab anytime.

Banana Carob Brownie Muffins (plant-based, gluten-free)

I call these banana carob brownie muffins because whenever my husband Mark eats one, he asks me “are you SURE there’s no chocolate in this?”
