Roughly a week ago my good friend (and uber-ultra-superbly talented photographer), Lauren made this soup during one of our little editing date nights and I just LOVED it! It was light, hearty and full of flavour. I knew I’d have to recreate it. Luckily for me, I already had all of the simple ingredients in my fridge. Let’s get to this great and easy soup!

We were recently contacted by Cookin’ Greens to create a unique and tasty using some of their fresh frozen vegetable mixes. Bob & I decided that creating a veggie packed BBQ pizza would be the best option! Now here is something cool about Cookin’ Greens which I really appreciate: all their frozen veggies (chopped kale, chopped spinach, chopped rapini, Designer Mix and the Athlete’s Mix) are frozen within six hours after being freshly farm picked, then are double washed, double blanched, chopped and flash frozen to seal in the maximum amount of nutrition and flavour. Because of Cookin’ Greens intense process, you can find these frozen veggies in the organic isle. But I’m hungry, so let’s get to the recipe! Continue reading

Now maybe Ratatouille doesn’t need that many exclamation marks, but I was excited to make it and finally find out what it tastes like! After watching (and thoroughly enjoying) the Pixar film, I’ve always been curious what it was like! Well I wasn’t disappointed! All the vegetables melded together into some wonderful flavours. My only issue with this dish was the texture, but to combat some of the “mushiness” I chopped up some more fresh peppers and added it. This gave it another layer of flavour and added that much needed crunch (in my opinion).

Well my lentil kick continues and this time it’s a little bit different. This time it comes in the form of lentil sprouts. These sprouts have a nice flavour to them – similar to fresh garden peas and have a good crunch to them. They are great to use in sandwiches, eggs, soups or dressing meat dishes. Let’s get to the part where you learn how to grow these right in your kitchen! Continue reading

To continue on with the beet recipes, here is a super easy, light, and tasty salad I made a couple weeks ago, since blood oranges were in season! If you haven’t tried a blood orange, you need to! They are really unique looking and taste great; I would describe their flavour as a orange/grapefruit hybrid.

I made this grilled cheese a while ago and just haven’t gotten around to posting it, but since it’s NATIONAL GRILLED CHEESE DAY (Probably the best day ever?!?) I couldn’t not post a grilled cheese! Now this one is quite different from anything I have done in the past, with my super hearty and savoury grilled cheese such as the Baked Potato Grilled Cheese. I am personally more a fan of those ones, but I enjoyed switching it up with this one! What are your guys thoughts?

Since we had a frost warning yesterday, I went out to the garden in my backyard to help my Mother pick all of the tomatoes, peppers and zucchinis so we had plenty of fresh vegetables in the house! After picking a few massive zucchinis I figured it was necessary use them in my lunch somehow, and thus this recipe was born!
