Easy Za’atar Socca

Bread made of chickpeas?! Yes, please! Crispy, gluten-free and the perfect vessel for dipping. I could ask for nothing more in my life. Socca is an Italian-French, crepe-like flatbread that is just so delicious. Try it with my Homemade Tzatziki recipe! The most important tool for perfecting this recipe, in my opinion, is a cast…

Homemade Tzatziki

I’m a sauce person. I love to dip, dip, dip. This tzatziki sauce is thick, creamy, refreshing and a great spread for wraps and gyros, or to go with falafel, fries, bread or vegetables. It’s the perfect match for anything that needs a creamy element! I love it with my Easy Za’atar Socca bread. Tzatziki…

Simple Beetroot Pasta

It’s pasta o’clock and I’m switching it up today with this tortiglioni in a creamy beet sauce. It’s pink, so you know it’s going to be good! I’m always diverting from traditional pasta sauces because life is too exciting to do boring things. The method this recipe follows is the tried-and-true method I use for…

Sumac Roasted Cauliflower

Give it up for cauliflower, the most versatile vegetable! Hey-yo! There’s no easier recipe, I promise you that. This whole-roasted cauliflower head is simple to prepare but complex on the palate! It’s vibe is very Middle Eastern – sumac, currants, pomegranates, pistachios. It’s visually stunning and a perfect side to go along with the rest…

Coconut Lime Cilantro Rice

Someone PLEASE bring me back to Southeast Asia so I can eat the best rice dishes on the planet… Please? I traveled to SE Asia during the summer of 2017. Those were the days, man. It was like 6 weeks of pure foodie inspiration. Rice, curries, fresh fruit, toasties from the 7/11…If you know, you…

Creamy Vegan Mushroom Rigatoni

There was one time in my life when I hated mushrooms. Can you even believe that? What was I thinking. Now I love those little fungi so much. That’s why I had to dedicate this pasta to them – to say I’m sorry for a lifetime of neglect, and it won’t happen again. One thing…

Hot and Sweet Cauliflower Wings

Story time with Kelly: Way back in the day, before I knew anything about cooking, I tried to fry food at home. I was in university and I can’t recall what I was making, but I can recall almost burning the house down. I put a pot of oil on the stove and waited. And…

Middle Eastern Orzo Pilaf

What happens when the Middle East meets the Mediterranean? Only the greatest of things! Okay, I am in love with all flavours of all regions of the world (literally), but Middle Eastern…AND Italian?! Two heavyweights in the culinary world and I’m here for it! Like a hundo P’s. Let me break down this fusion for…

Roasted Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Crouton Skewers

What’s better than tomato soup and grilled cheese when the weather starts to get chilly?! Here’s a hint: It starts with “n” and ends with “othing.” Tomato season is over where I am from, but soup season is just beginning, so I had to grab one more batch of fresh tomatoes to use to make…

Pumpkin and Kale Pizza

Mmmhm, yup. You read it right. Pumpkin pizza, baby. And, it’s damn good! When an ingredient comes into season, you better believe I overdo it. Every. Single. Time. But seriously, that’s what we are supposed to do, right?! Eat local, eat seasonal. For our country, for our health. The greatest part of this pizza is…
