Chocolate Almond Banana Pancakes

I know Valentine’s Day has already passed, but if you’re on the hunt for a special breakfast to treat yourself or someone else, I’ve got just the thing.  This is essentially a dessert for breakfast.  These pancakes are jam packed with yummy ingredients like bananas, chocolate chips, and almond butter.  To really go the extra…

Shiitake and Smoked Tofu Bahn Mi

James made me a simple Bahn Mi sandwich on Saturday and it reminded me how much I used to LOVE Vietnamese subs.  When he made me the sandwich, he marinated some firm tofu in soy sauce and fried it.  When I made us sandwiches today, I decided that I would use smoked tofu instead of…

Eggnog Aquafaba Pancakes

Cleansing Blackberry Ginger Smoothie

Autumn Spice Muffins

Ahhh, the season of pumpkin spice is upon us!  I’ve put a little twist on this old favourite by using Acorn squash puree instead of pumpkin; I had some leftover from making the Sweet and Spicy Acorn Squash Soup.  I topped these babies off with some vegan cream cheese frosting that I had leftover from…
