Spring Ingredients

Christ is risen! I fasted not only from certain foods and passions, I fasted from music. Music is a major soul uplifter for me, but during Great Lent I practiced going to and relying on God as the source to uplift my soul. I made little progress, if any, but its probably better something and…

Winter Season

What is written here is mostly taken from the “Vegetarian Flavor Bible” along from other sources. When in doubt, I always refer to the “Vegetarian Flavor Bible”! It helps me figure out what to cook and what to pair when I am at loss for inspiration. If you don’t have one, I highly suggest you…

Mulberry

Christ is risen! Lately I have decided to add new foods into my daily life. I tend to go to Julie Morris’ cookbooks when I need inspiration for a healthy meal that’s vanguard and bold with creative flavors. Furthermore, I’ve been eyeing her books “Superfood Juices” and “Superfood Smoothies” for quite some time and I…

Hummus with Tahini

Christ is risen! I’ve been making this recipe for about 6 years or so now and its been my go to recipe ever since I found it. Joseph Shuldiner uses baking soda in his recipe when soaking the chickpeas overnight; I use apple cider vinegar. When taking classes at the Natural Gourmet Institute, I learned…

Easter Recipes I will be using time and time again

Christ is Risen! Hello my dear ones! The photo above sums up pretty much the last few months what I have been striving for: trying to be deep in prayer. I have not written for many months, please forgive me. I tend to get muscle spasms, sciatica, and back pain; I was in no mood…

Carrot and Spinach Breakfast Muffins

Christ is Risen! Glory be to God! Another recipe to share from Phaidon’s “The Greek Cookbook”. So far, nothing has been a disappointment from this cookbook. The recipes are easy to make vegan for someone who has an intolerance to dairy. The flavor combination of dill and cumin and the Greek yogurt is a mixture…

Earl Grey Lattes

Christ is Risen! Aside from mushroom lattes, I really enjoy this recipe. I would have never thought of blending frozen bananas with tea but it works! According to Thug Kitchen, you can use any kind of tea, which I haven’t tried yet because Earl Grey tea is my favorite blend. You can use chai, pepper…

Mushroom Latte

Christ is Risen! Mushroom latte!? I know, it sounds crazy right? But bare with me… Since I am limiting my coffee intake, I turn to Earl Grey tea and as my midday caffeine I have matcha. Lately I have been making mushroom lattes and adding it to my daily routine. I know mushroom lattes must…

Eggplant & Feta Parcels

Christ is Risen! Not much of this world brings me such great joy except when I find a new recipe and can share with my loved ones, and we commune in joy. Much love can be felt when sharing a meal with those around you; it is a good feeling knowing that you prepared a…

Cheesy Carrot Keftedes

Christ is Risen! Lately I have been eating many Greek inspired dishes and going to our local Greek restaurant, Elea. From observation, a lot of the Greek foods are wholesome foods and many are plant based, or can be easily made plant based. In Greek culture, majority of the population is Orthodox Christian. Part of…

Roasted Carrots and Shallots with Chermoula

Christ is Risen! This recipe has been a recent favorite of mine. Typically, I like to make easy and healthy recipes with minimal steps so that I can split my time reading and making art but also easy on my body since I am prone to body pain when standing for too long. I like…
