Broccoli Leek Soup


I love making a good soup but I want it to be quick and simple while still jammed with satisfying flavours.  I've created a new vegan broccoli soup and from beginning to end, it took less than 30 minutes to make.  If you're feeling the need for a quick and easy soup, give this one a try! Broccoli (aka: mini trees) are a great anti-cancer food also!

I like to make a double batch and freeze some for later. 
Add 1-2 cups of cooked quinoa for some extra healthy carbs. 
Sprinkle some Nutritional Yeast on top for some extra B vitamins.

Sweet Potato Toast


Have you heard about this bizarre but brilliant trend of using sweet potato slices as toast?  I have to admit, it’s pretty great!  While I assumed it would only taste good with savoury toppings, you’ll be happy to know it’s also delicious with sweet.  

I’ve included the recipe below along with a video to show a variety of ways to enjoy this newly favourite grain-free toast.  Whether you want to be quick and use the toaster or you would prefer to toast it in the oven, I give you both options. Hope you enjoy!  


Sweet Potato Toast (Baked or Toasted)

*click on blue text to buy ingredients

prep time: cook time: total time:


  • 1 sweet potato
  • hummus
  • parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. Slice your cleaned potato in thin slices either round or long. 
  3. Place on a baking pan  and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. *Option to turn once half way through cooking.
  4. If your potato is cut thick than you may need to cook it longer then the 30 minutes.
  5. Once the potato is soft and cooked all the way through, broil each side for 1 min each, watching it does't burn. 
  6. Spread on your almond butter, top it with sliced strawberries and hemp hearts and enjoy! 
  1. Cut the ends off your washed potato and be sure it will fit into your toaster once it's sliced. 
  2. Slice the potato long thin slices. 
  3. Turn your toaster up high and toast the slices. You may need to do this 2-3 times or until it is soft and fully cooked. 
  4. You should notice it's lightly browning on the outside. 
  5. Once it's ready, spread on the hummus and sprinkle the parsley on top. Enjoy!
