Buckwheat Pancakes

27 Feb

I can’t stop thinking about these.

Buckwheat Pancakes

As a natural part of nutrition school, I’ve decided to TRY going gluten-free for the most part. I made these babies in ~10 minutes a little while ago, which even included making by own buckwheat flour in the Blendtec! Buckwheat has a distinct flavour — kind of like chocolate and nuts mixed together. If you’re not a huge fan, try cutting it in half with rice flour.

Atypical Nanaimo Bars

    I was super proud of the raw, vegan Nanaimo Bars I’d just made but I was trying to be sneaky and not say ‘raw’ or ‘vegan’.
  2. Julie kindly pointed out what you might already know.
  3. To which I replied…
  4. @dinnerwithjulie oh really?! Shows how many times I’ve made them — never!
  5. In any case, this recipe is such a treat, super easy to make, and much better for you than the traditional variety. Now, someone come pry me away from them…

Poached Tilapia in Coconut Milk Curry

8 Feb

I’m so impressed with the way this last-minute, one-pan-meal came together. I’d spent the afternoon working up an appetite while volunteering for Growing Chefs at Whole Foods and did a quick run around the store to get a piece of tilapia before leaving. My first thought had been to throw together a stir-fry, but after perusing my fridge and finding leftover roasted squash and a bit of coconut milk, I decided to do a simple curry. SO glad I did.

I don’t actually own curry powder or paste. All it is is a mix of spices anyways, so I generally just put my own mix together. Use whole spices and grind them in a spice (read: coffee) grinder! You can use any vegetables you like in this recipe. I just used what was quick and easy.
