Here’s where you can find them…
I was so delighted when my friend, Andrea Hardy of Ignite Nutrition, told me that a couple recipes from Remedy Cafe – my FAVOURITE University study spot – were in the Edmonton Cooks Cookbook. I made this Chana Masala and it was so easy and SO delicious. Check out the cookbook here for the recipe or pick it up at your local Chapters bookstore!
Vegetarian Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
I just ate this for lunch and it was so warm and nourishing. I highly recommend trying to find those beautiful purple sweet potatoes, but of course, any sweet potato or yam will do. And here’s a little tip if you need to quicken up dinner: after poking holes in the sweet potatoes with a fork, microwave for 8-10 minutes before baking in the oven!
Cauliflower Fettuccine Alfredo
You’ll never know the sauce is made out of cauliflower. It’s simply awesome! I think I would add a touch more garlic in this recipe (but what can I say, I just LOVE the stuff), and find a protein source to balance out the plate – maybe some white beans, chicken, or shrimp!
