1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Health and Wellness on: January 09, 2018 07:43:55 AM
Would anyone care to participate in a health and wellness swap?  I'm looking to return to swapping and this theme is of particular interest to me.  We could open of the swap some time this week, with a one-month crafting time?  I don't mind organizing.
2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Roasted Red Pepper Soup with Salad on: July 15, 2016 06:52:22 PM
I made a roasted red pepper soup for my vegan lunch special at work this week.  It was flavoured with a chili oil and topped with local sprouts.  Served on the side was a garden salad using mixed greens, avocado, tomato, chickpeas, and local garlic scapes.  I made a walnut-pesto dressing to accompany it.  This dish was also gluten-free.

3  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Caesar Burger on: June 26, 2016 03:40:56 PM
What I created last week:

"Being served at the vegan station this week is a Caesar burger. Enjoy a delicious multi-grain and chickpea patty, topped with garlicky dressing and fresh greens. The choice is yours to create a full sandwich, an open-faced sandwich or to skip the bread altogether and wrap the patty with leaf lettuce. Served on the side in a chilled tomato and vegetable soup."

4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Veggie Spaghetti (Vegan and Gluten-Free) on: June 26, 2016 03:33:27 PM
Veggie spaghetti is what's on the menu at the vegan station this week (at work). I''ve prepared this dish using raw zucchini noodles and spinach, an in-house sun-dried tomato sauce, as well as oven-roasted vegetables. Mushroom-walnut balls top the spaghetti and finally, I've garnished it all with some hemp seeds and garden chives.

5  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Dandelion Flower Flatbread on: May 23, 2016 03:49:05 PM
After making a couple of batches of dandelion jelly this morning, my backyard still had plenty of yellow spots in the grass.  I wondered what dandelion flower flatbread would taste like...

There's nothing spectacular about this recipe.  I used spelt flour, baking powder, pink himalayan sea salt, fresh dandelion petals, hemp seeds, coconut oil and coconut milk. 

It turned out pretty good for a first try!  They were baked for about ten minutes but I think I'd like to have a go at frying in the cast iron pan next time.
6  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Spicy Lentil Chili "Cheese" Burger on: May 17, 2016 04:30:10 PM
After posting about the vegan Chili Fries I've come up with for work, I was asked if I wanted to create an entire line of vegan burgers.  Hmm...  Seeing as how the Chili Fries are doing so well, I tested it out in patty form this evening.  Here it is:

7  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Chili Fries on: May 15, 2016 05:55:43 PM
I've prepared some vegan chilli fries for this week's lunch special at work.  The description I came up with for the Facebook page:

"Be sure to visit our vegan station this week for a nutritious but delicious serving of Chili Fries. Over a bed of baby spinach and organic corn chips we pile some oven-roasted carrot fries as well as a helping of slightly spicy brown lentil chili. We then add a big swirl of gooey Vegancheese sauce, freshly diced tomatoes, green onions, and finally, a lime wedge."

8  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Edamame Burger with Savoy Cabbage Slaw on: May 15, 2016 05:51:20 PM
Last week's lunch menu at work.  I knew I wanted some Asian flavours and had a ton of edamame to use up so I checked out Pinterest for inspiration then created my own recipe from there.  Here's the description I wrote for our Facebook page:

"Our vegan burgers are well worth the excitement and this week, this sandwich is making its way back to the lunch menu with an Asian flare! We offer you a fully flavoured edamame (soybean) patty that among the ingredients contains sesame oil, ginger, and scallions. It is partnered with a thick layer of miso spread, a lightly sauteed bok choy as well as pickled cucumber and carrots. Enjoy this burger alongside a crisp savoy cabbage slaw."

It sold really well!
9  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Fava Bean Burger on: March 28, 2016 12:23:16 PM
My vegan lunch special at work this week is a fava bean burger.  Among the ingredients in the patty itself are green peas and asparagus.  I chose to create two sauces for this dish.  At the base is a creamy lemon-dill (you can see some of it spread on the plate) and on top of the patty is a sun-dried tomato and pumpkin seed pesto.  The remaining toppings consist of fresh vegetables.  A simple spinach, cucumber and radish salad with an orange-sesame vinaigrette is served on the side.

10  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / "Ital Stew" on: March 24, 2016 02:05:20 PM
Here was the vegan dish of the week at work.  An adaptation of an "Ital Stew" recipe my friend has given to me when I first began following a vegetarian diet back in the day.  On most days it contained sweet potatoes, carrots, plantain, corn, black eyed peas and chickpeas, bell peppers onions, garlic and ginger, coconut milk, handmade dumplings, and spices.  To garnish, oven-baked plantain chips.

I actually had a nightmare about this stew one day during the week.  Haha.  It sold fairly well but I was still on edge all week.
