Kidney Bean & Chickpea Salad with Spiced Citrus Dressing

  Marion Cotillard (photog. Mario Testino) / via my Pinterest   I feel like legumes deserve an apology from me.

I…

Health by Stealth Caulifredo Sauce

Art by Nicoletta Ceccoli   When I came across the idea of cauliflower sauce, I was a little skeptical, but also intrigued. Intrigued enough that I had to try it.

5 Minute Maple Cider Green Salad

By Lola Dupre   This salad was our yummy-green-leaves-thing tonight, and it rocked hard. I served it on the side of a winning Lentil-Stuffed Roasted Red Capsicum and Whatever Pasta & Thick Garlic-Tomato Sauce combo. The vinaigrette is bold and tangy with a hint of sweetness. It might just be my favourite salad dressing creation…
