Green tea tofu soba bowl

One of my favourite recipes from the Sprouted Kitchen cookbook is green tea poached salmon with soba noodles. I was quite naughty this week (drinking, fries, desert, fried chicken, the list goes on) and so Matt adapted this recipe for me, to make it vegan and gluten free, as I was craving a healthy meal tonight.  Reason 405,892 I can’t wait to marry this guy.  It’s a really well balanced dish with protein, carbs and veggies.

Portobello mushroom melt

This is the easy yet fancy sort of breakfast that you make when you just start sleeping over at your lover’s house. The kind where you wake up before him, quietly pad to the bathroom to remove the mascara residue from under your eyes, brush your teeth and fix your hair (the old “I woke up like this” routine).

What’s more, it’s completely vegan but add a little feta cheese and merguez sausage and voilà – an incredible dish that will please everyone. Yalla, let’s do it: – 1 medium acorn squash (2 if preparing a meal for a group) – 3 tablespoons of coconut oil – Sea salt and freshly ground…

Matt: “How much was your organic gluten-free granola thing from the health food store?” Me: “Uh, 10 bucks I think” Matt: “…So if you buy that every week you’ll have spent over $550 on granola this year.” Me: “!!!!” Oh hells no. That’s a few outfits at Club Monaco right there. So this weekend’s project was to make my own. It was very easy, it is very delicious, it’s healthier than store-bought, and baking it makes the house smell good so triple bonus right there…
