I had a random memory of lemon pasta and decided to give it a try! This is a simple, basic recipe that you can add/subtract/change as needed.
Cook your choice of noodles as directed - I love GoGo Quinoa for a GF option
Diced Veggies of choice (Zucchini, Bell Peppers, Peas, etc)
Juice of 1 Lemon
Salt & Pepper
While the noodles are cooking, lightly sauté the Veggies with crushed Garlic, Salt & Pepper
This is our go-to breakfast/lunch/dinner meal! There are so many options and they all turn out amazing :)

I have a couple of curry cauliflower soups I use on occasion. I also play around with various Thai curry soups. Last night, I meshed together a few ideas and recipes and came up with this warm veggie soup.

1 medium Yellow Onion - diced
1-2 inch Ginger - peeled & minced
1-2 cloves Garlic - crushed
2 Tbsp Curry Powder - to taste so more/less if needed
1-2 Tbsp Turmeric
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Garlic Powder
240 ml Veggie Broth

A new random creation for the lunch rotation!
My niece is attending her second year of university and has access to a kitchen this year. We were talking about my one-pot wonder meals and I remembered that white rice/quinoa cook in the same time as black (aka Beluga) lentils. That formed the base of this dish. Then it was time for a new dressing...
...I found a lemon tahini dressing from Yummy Mummy Kitchen that looked like the flavours I...
Since I had 1/2 of a jar of crushed tomatoes left from making the stuffed peppers, I decided this was also a good week to make spaghetti squash. I usually just add ingredients to boost a jar of spaghetti sauce (or do a roasted tomato one), but I took the chance on a spaghetti sauce with the crushed tomatoes.
This is big for me because I actually really don't like tomatoes when they resemble/taste like a tomato. I'm even known for picking...
I finally did it! I finally made stuffed peppers! And I totally miss-judged the rice/pepper ratio, but I ended up with lots of yummy Spanish Rice left over.
As always, I didn't follow a recipe (and I'm writing this post a little late) so I'll do my best to remember the recipe, but please play with the ingredients and spice level on your own :)

I'm a bit of a documentary nerd. I absolutely love documentaries - usually the ones about food, the climate, discovery, our societal impacts at home and around the world, and scientific research.
Most of my documentaries are watched on Netflix and through CBC. I also try to read and educate myself on these topics. Now, I am not a scientist, nor am I a doctor. I did not spend years learning research methods, and I always have to look up...
I call this one-pot-wonder "pad thai", but I'm pretty sure it only resembles a pad thai. Anyway, it's easy and yummy!
I have a few versions, depending on what sauces I have on hand, and what flavours I'm feeling that night.

1/2 Onion - julienned (optional)
2ish handfuls Kale Slaw (or coleslaw mix)
