Jackfruit nuggets by Plantropy

I was at The CHFA exhibition at the Vancouver Convention Centre and was blown away by all the plantbased foods. Got lotsa swag and met some new friends (and old). Our friends at Plantropy hooked us up with delicious golden nuggets! These lil nuggs crisped up nicely in the air fryer. They have the crispContinue reading “Jackfruit nuggets by Plantropy”

Vegan Peanut Butter Mayo Pickle & Onion Sandwich

Don’t knock it till ya try it 😉 So, the great thing about this recipe is that the basic recipe consists of commons ingredients we all have at home: peanut butter, dill pickles, onions, and vegan mayo (okay, maybe this one isn’t as common). So, the core of the recipe is really simple: just 4Continue reading “Vegan Peanut Butter Mayo Pickle & Onion Sandwich”

Haidilao Hotpot in Richmond BC

Haidilao Hotpot has some vegan options like broth, veggies, tofu and various other soy-based ingredients. The value wasn’t quite there at the Richmond location, but it was very tasty and the ambience was nice. Back in 2013, I remember the China branch had more perks while waiting to be seated though.

Crispy Chik’n Nuggets from Happy Veggie World

These delicious little nuggets are super crispy and remind me a lot of Yves chick’n nuggets, but at a fraction of the price! You can buy them bulk from Happy Veggie World in Richmond.

Homemade Spicy Lemongrass Chick’n Noodle Soup

On the weekend, I juiced up some jumbo carrots in my Breville juicer to make delicious creamy carrot juice (I find the jumbo carrots are much sweeter than regular carrots). With the leftover carrot pulp, I decided to make a soup stock out of it. It was really simple, just add it to a potContinue reading “Homemade Spicy Lemongrass Chick’n Noodle Soup”
