Recipe: Coconut Curry Turmeric Soup (Vegan)

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.

1/2 Onion (chopped)
2 inch Ginger
2-4 cloves Garlic (depending on size)
1 1/2 Tbsp Turmeric
1 Tbsp Curry Powder

Recipe: Southwest Quinoa and Black Bean Stew (Instant Pot)

I don't know what I was going for when I created this, but somehow it came together!

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)

Recipe: Vegan and Gluten-Free Mac & Cheese

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)

1/4 C...

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.

Cashew Parmesan

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

Pulse in...
