Chickpea Caesar Salad

This salad came out of combining bits and pieces together but the recipe absolutely works. This is a light and super easy salad to make compared to regular caesar salad that is drowned in oil and has fried chicken on top. Instead, swapping the lettuce for kale adds more micronutrients and chickpeas add crunch, flavour... Continue Reading →

The King of Veg Chinese Take Out (King’s Cafe Restaurant)

If you guys follow me on instagram, which you should (thecanadianafrican) you will know that I am OBSESSED with this restaurant. A bit of a back story. My first in this restaurant was 2016 after a vegan meetup, but it was not the greatest. We were a very very large group and did not come... Continue Reading →

My love for plantain is really pushing me to explore many ways for me to include this perfect starch into different food recipes. Today's progress on project "get-plantains-into-every-recipe" consists of the inclusion of plantains in pancakes. This recipe is bomb and super simple. Plantain pancakes are not a new creation.

Maple Nut Granola (Vegan)

One day my mum had bought a bunch of grains and seeds and was looking to make granola but her first batch unfortunately burned. So I took it upon myself to make some for my mother and it has been a hit at home. It is ready in less than 40 minutes and is the... Continue Reading →

The Easiest Vegan Pesto Pizza

Before going vegan, I used to have a slight obsession with pesto. I remember I would always opt for pesto sauce on my pasta rather than tomato or alfredo. There was just always something about the saltiness of the pesto and the fragrance of the herbs that always drew me to pesto. So it was... Continue Reading →

Out of This World Vegan Eats (Cosmic Treats)

Cosmic Treats has a special place in my heart. It was one of the first vegan eateries I visited in Toronto after going vegan. I believe the first time I actually went into what one can call a cross between a dinner and a cool ice cream shop was after a vegan meet-up. Since then,... Continue Reading →
