Roasted Garlic Kale Hummus

Hummus... a classic Middle Eastern chickpea spread or dip. Nutritious and flavourful. Here we're adding fresh kale and roasting the garlic - a delicious and easy way to boost nutrients to an already healthy dish!  Our hummus is bright with a zesty lemony flavour that is complemented by the smooth undertone of roasted garlic. The added raw kale boosts nutrients by adding a healthy dose of antioxidants, vitamins A, C and K...

Baked Spinach Falafel

Even a vegan dish like falafels can use an upgrade! Falafel, a common dish eaten throughout the Middle East, is traditionally a deep-fried ball, or patty, made from ground chickpeas and often served in a pita or wrapped in a flatbread. We've added extra greens without interrupting the bold flavours of this dish and have opted to bake our falafel instead of frying making this a much healthier...

Full of gut-friendly fibre, iron, protein and healthy minerals, eating lentils is definitely a way to kick off a year of good intentions! Our lentil salad combines lentils, quinoa and kale, topped with pomegranate seeds...

Our version is as delicious as our Momma's, but we've omitted the grains to make it gluten-free and a little lighter, yet is still loaded up with nutrient-dense veggies and fibre-rich legumes, and is satisfyingly creamy from...

Walnut & Almond ‘Bolognese’ Sauce

We love the classic Bolognese Sauce. Referred to as ragù, Bolognese Sauce is a meat-based sauce originating from Bologna, Italy. It is often prepared with ground beef or veal, sometimes pork, and vegetables like carrots and onions. We've lighted up this Italian classic by swapping the meat for nuts. This swap may seem nuts, but this Italian meatless sauce will not disappoint. It's hearty and filling. The nuts...
