Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese with Broccoli and Cauliflower

The fresh sage in my garden has been inspiring me to find as many ways as possible to use it, so voila, this mac and cheese! My squash was small and yielded 3 cups mashed. From the pictures in the original recipe, it looks like they may have used more squash.

Black Bean Enchilada Casserole

It's time for another casserole! I love to cook once and feed a crowd or myself a whole bunch of times. This one is time consuming but worth it. To make it quicker to prepare, I suggest you enlist some help! Oh did I mention each serving packs a hearty 13 g of fibre, 19 g protein and is also a great source of iron, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin C! Find [...]

Cauliflower and Peas Mac and Cheese

Cook once, eat 8 times! That is how I live. Whether or not this recipe makes 8 servings for you, I cannot promise, but what I do promise is that it tastes great! By throwing the vegetables into the water with the pasta in the last few minutes of cooking, you can save yourself from having to cook them separately and using another dish. This time I added broccoli and used frozen. [...]

Vegan Lentil and Vegetable Curry

I recently started using Pinterest and Instagram to find new recipes to add to my rotation. I have made a few different curry recipes before but this one stood out to me because of the use of whole mustard, cumin, and coriander seeds, as well as cardamom pods. I find when I buy curry paste, I have to make sure I use up the jar. By using only dry spices, one does [...]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Berry Baked Oatmeal

Over the past few months I have gotten really into baked oatmeal. While not every recipe I have tried has turned out great, this was better the second time around as I reduced the oats from 3 cups to 2.5 cups. I would even consider reducing it a bit more next time. Peanut butter, chocolate, banana, and berry? YUM! I  added raspberries for more fruit (and fibre) but any berry would be [...]

Roasted Eggplant Lasagna

I had saved this recipe months ago when I took a cookbook out from the library. Described as a cross between eggplant parmesan and spinach lasagna, this recipe did not disappoint! I made 8 servings, but you can make more of less depending on your needs. I felt there was not enough tomato sauce so I have written out the recipe to make 1.5 times the sauce. You may have extra but [...]

Peach and Blueberry Baked Oatmeal

I recently got into baked oatmeal so that I can make it once and have breakfast ready 4-6 times! I tend to batch cook for other meals so it was only a matter of time before I started this with breakfast. My only limitation now is freezer space! Originally I made this recipe with strawberries and rhubarb, but the basket of fresh Ontario peaches on my counter needed to be used and [...]
