Fruity Crumble

When I make this fruity crumble, it almost always vanishes within a few minutes! ¬†You can’t really mess it up, and can add or substitute almost anything to make it originally your own ūüôā

Mom’s Vegetarian Mexican Bean Bake (Vegan Option)

using canned beans

Mexican Bean Bake… see, even I cheat sometimes… at least the canned stuff is organic!

Just to clarify, my mother is not Mexican… nor has she ever been to Mexico. ¬†But, I’ll call this a ‘Mexican’ bean dish because there is enough Mexican influence in America that maybe American’s don’t have to travel to Mexico to get a taste for Mexican food. ¬† Read the rest of this entry

Kate’s Shovel-Down-Your-Mouth Banana Bread (Vegetarian/Vegan)

Posted on

Bananananana Bread!!!! The babies can’t get enough of my banana bread.

Last week, I had two 12 month old babies come to visit on the same day I made this banana bread. ¬†Unfortunately for Art, by the time he got home from work, there was only a little crumb left for him. ¬†One of these darling little babies, who apparently doesn’t consistently eat much, was SHOVELING this stuff down. ¬†I stole part of this recipe and made the rest up on my own. ¬†One because I don’t eat eggs and two because I always feel like after eating traditional banana bread, it makes me feel a bit like I just downed a bunch of sugar. ¬†I put ground linseed (flax) and shredded coconut, so it takes a bit longer for you to burn, doesn’t give you that sugar rush thing.

I like tahini, mom!!!!

This dish is easy and quick! ¬†When I was a teenager learning to cook, unless we were baking something, the only thing my mother would ever tell me about how to prepare a dish was, ‘just put anything in it, you can’t mess it up!’. Read the rest of this entry

Sesame Ginger Dressing

Margo’s looking at me like, ‘Hurry up and take the picture because I need to devour the avocados!”

I haven’t bought dressing from a shop in years… I’m not much of recipe writer or follower. ¬†Ok, I’ve never actually stopped to write down ingredients from the food I make, but people are always bugging me. ¬†So, through request, I’m finally going to start attempting to put some of my recipes down. ¬†Since I’m not a recipe writer, feel free to merely be inspired by the recipes. ¬†Change what you like, there’s no real way to mess up vegetarian food ūüôā

Sesame Ginger Dressing (serves 2 or 3, depending if you like to load on the dressing like me or not).

1/4 cup Olive Oil

2 tablespoons Sesame Oil

1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar

1 squeeze of a Lemon (the apple cider vinegar usually makes it sour enough, but I like the lemon for the vitamin C)

1/4 teaspoon Ground Ginger

1/4 teaspoon Sugar or alternative sweetener (maple syrup is yummy too!)

1 teaspoon Soy Sauce

salt and pepper to taste

Salad

Serve on a any bed of salad, I like my salad with this stuff on it:

-avocado

-grated beatroot and ground carrots

-sprinkle on sesame seeds

-if you’re feeling like some fun, put some veggie meat stuff on it
