Favourite Peanut and Tomato Soup

Favourite Peanut and Tomato Soup

This is not a typical tomato soup. Peanut butter adds a creamy and smooth texture to this soup. The flavours here are little on the spicier side, highlighting the its sweetness just perfectly.

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Cranberry Salad

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Cranberry Salad

This Shaved Brussels Sprout and Cranberry Salad has a decidedly holiday twist with the dried cranberries and walnuts. I’ve used a very basic lemon dressing with a little honey to sweeten things up.

Balsamic and Garlic Roasted Carrots with Parmesan

Balsamic and Garlic Roasted Carrots with Parmesan

Roasted Turnip and Root Vegetable Mash

Roasted Turnip and Root Vegetable Mash

This is perfect holiday – thanksgiving, Christmas, you name it feast – dish. It covers off the mashed sweet vegetable requirements in a new and unexpected way. I have now decided that the vinaigrette may very well be the best thing to ever happen to a turnip.

Spaghetti Squash with Feta and Kale

Spaghetti Squash with Feta and Kale

This. This is how I like spaghetti squash – when it is still spaghetti squash. When we are not really pretending it is something else. But serving it up as it is. Highlighting all those vegetable qualities that really do make it something wonderful. Adding some sharp and intense flavours like garlic and feta. Good olive oil. This Spaghetti Squash with Feta and Kale is spot on… if I do say so myself. 🙂

Caramelized Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Smoked Cheddar

Sometimes the simplest things are the best of things. And sometimes simple can be so much more than just simple….
These are not the sweet potatoes you had yesterday. Nope. These are Roasted Sweet Potatoes and they are sweet and salty and peppery and smoky. These are amazing.
