There's this coconut curry turmeric soup at a local restaurant in Vancouver that is what cravings are made of...and that restaurant is currently closed due to COVID-19.
So, I took it upon myself to attempt my own version, knowing that I was missing one of the key ingredients.
1 tsp Coconut Oil
1/2 Onion (chopped)
2 inch Ginger
2-4 cloves Garlic (depending on size)
1 1/2 Tbsp Turmeric
1 Tbsp Curry Powder
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
2/3 block Medium or...
I've made this a few times now and I FINALLY wrote down the proportions!
This is a super warm and comforting Indian-inspired dish based on Butter Chicken, but it's 100% vegan!
Seasoned Tofu & Cauliflower
I have mixing bowls with lids so I put all these ingredients into the bowl, put the lid on and shake. Let sit while you...
Sometimes we know we want to take action on something, but we're not quite ready to take that action.
You've made a decision, or you're on the precipice of making a decision, but there's a lag between that decision being made and you feeling ready to take the action. This is what I'm calling Lagging Action.
This usually happens with those big, life-changing decisions - like leaving your job, moving cities, even changing your...
It's that time of the year again, when the collective is focused on setting Annual Goals.
It's with good intention and the desire to create change in our life!
As a coach, I am here to tell you that change is possible and it is possible for you!
It's a matter...
I've made two variations of this now and love both of them.
This is a super simple and oh so stereotypically vegan meal. I was laughing as I described it to someone, but it's so yummy!

I've heard this and said this so many times. It was this morning when I was talking about expecting someone in my organization to talk to me this week about my merit.
My organization calls our annual salary review "merit".
This morning my friend stopped me and said in her perfectly matter-of-fact way "you have merit and nothing they say or do can change that".
Words have so much meaning and I was allowing this conversation about my merit...
I don't know what I was going for when I created this, but somehow it came together!
I was thinking about a vegetable soup, then I was thinking a minestrone which led to some black beans...anyway, it turned into some type of southwest inspired soup/stew thing and I'm not mad about it!
Instant Pot Black Beans
1 C Dried Black Beans (no need to soak)
1 3/4 C Vegetable Broth (I've been using this one recently)
1 piece of Kombu (this helps us...
A while ago I had tried making a vegan mac & cheese with a primarily cashew-based recipe. It was good, but it was dense! It was so heavy and I had a hard time eating more than a small amount.
I gave up for a while, then recently came across this recipe.
I've used it as a base, but modified a bit (as I tend to do).
1 C Carrot (peeled)
1 C Potatoes (peeled)
1/3 C Onion
1 C Water
2(ish) C Macaroni Noodles (I use Go Go Quinoa)
This one has a lot of components, but each is really simple. The dressing was definitely some trial and error so I'll do my best to provide the best guide I can, but please taste-test and adjust as you need!
Make a cup of Quinoa - I added some lemon juice to the water, just because.
I used Minimalist Baker's Vegan Parm recipe for this one.
3/4 C Cashews
3 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
3/4 tsp Salt
I used the America's Test Kitchen - Vegan for Everyone Currant Scones recipe as a base, but made a few modifications.
I used my food processor for most of this recipe.
1/2 C GF Oat Flour (you can make this by putting the oats into the food processor and blending for a couple mins)
3/4 C GF Flour (I use Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1)
3 Tbsp Sugar (I used 1 Tbsp brown and 2 Tbsp white)
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
5 Tbsp Coconut Oil (I...
