A Bowl of Sunshine: Butternut Squash Veggie Soup

When I started this blog, one of my first posts was a butternut squash soup. I even went on to film a video and the recipe is still in heavy rotation during my winter meal prep. I thought I will reshare the recipe that has made some changes throughout the years. So recently, I have... 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 →

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 →

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 →

Thus, no two tries of a recipe are exaclty the same,... Continue Reading →

Curried Lentils Shepherds Pie

Granted you do lose a good amount of your sense of taste flying, it was definitely something I did not want to try again.... Continue Reading →

Full Ghanaian Breakfast (Vegan)

I have been craving a full breakfast with scrambled tofu and potatoes and beans for a while but instead of potatoes, plantains have sounded like a better option. So I thought to myself, why not make it a Ghanaian full breakfast. Of course being vegan, I am subbing the eggs for tofu and using plantains instead... Continue Reading →

Spiced Rice with Cumin & Star Anise

I love rice. I definitely eat it more than three times a week and it is a staple in my pantry. Sometime white rice cooked plain serves as a great base for more flavourful stews and sauces, but sometime plain rice can be boring. This spiced rice will elevate your rice game to a whole...

Red Lentil Curry

This is by far one of the quickest and easiest recipes I make. I have been making this curry for the past two years since being vegan and it has become such a usual that I can make it with my eyes closed. It takes no time to make and ready in less than 40... Continue Reading →
