Brown Rice Shitake Mushroom Chicken Congee

This congee is a savory rice porridge that can be thin or thick, it is up to you. Known as a medicinal porridge served for centuries in East Indian and Chinese homes to promote good health and strong digestion. A traditional breakfast dish that can be made for dinner as it is both hearty and satisfying. It is very good for individuals with mild digestive issues, a simple grain cooked in a broth with kombu is easily digested and assimilated–does not require a lot of digestive breakdown by the body.

Stuffed Butternut Squash with Tempeh

I usually for butternut squash with a long neck and a small bulb so that you get the most squash and the least amount of seeds. For this recipe, I want the opposite—a larger cavity for filling and just a little squash to add to my stuffing.

Oven-Baked Chickpea Ratatouille

This dish is much like ratatouille in appearance, but using chickpeas and an original spice combination.

The flavors are complex and the preparation minimal!

Sweet Potato Curry Hummus

Creamy, smooth and slightly sweet, this sweet potato hummus is perfect for dips, sandwiches or eaten straight on a spoon! The sweet potato adds vitamin C and A, is anti-inflammatory, regulates blood sugar and has antioxidants. The curry boasts another long list of benefits and is a nice compliment to the sweetness in the sweet potato.

Blue-Lavender Smoothie

This smoothie is one of my favorite ways to start the day. In addition to an unique flavor profile, it is packed with a double punch of antioxidants and fibre from the blueberry`s and chia seeds. The kefir provides beneficial probiotics and you even get a chance to sneak in a few dark, leafy kale greens! If you use fresh blueberries or want a thinner smoothie throw in a handful of ice.

Hummus Tortilla Pizzas

Transform an ordinary whole-grain tortilla into the perfect personal-size crispy vegan pizza base. Pair with hummus for some vegan pizza bliss! Rather than give you specific ingredients for one pizza, I outline the method and suggest some topping pairings using hummus.
