Sage & Garlic “Brown Butter” Pasta w/Roasted Cauliflower

It’s a rainy summer Saturday, and I’m happy to say I’ve spent the better part of the evening making pasta & listening to podcasts. I’ve only recently discovered Food Psych and really enjoyed the episode I listened today on “Emotional Eating and Diet Culture”. I definitely recommend listening if you’re interested in the psychology of…

Pad Thai Inspired (but definitely not pad thai) Noodle Dish

I would just like to begin this post by telling everyone that I am a huge fan of Thai food. Whenever given the option of shovelling Thai food into my face, I choose it over literally anything else. I appreciate the few good options for Thai I’ve had had the chance in Canada. I am…

(Probably Inauthentic) Panang Curry

Hi friends! Over the weekend, my mum was visiting me here in Edmonton, and we stopped at a fantastic little Thai spot (Numchok Wilai if you’re interested- check out their vegetarian lunch menu especially, what a great deal!) for dinner. It will probably be one of my go to spots after such delicious noms, I…

Falafel as Frik

Holla folks. After a few weeks of barely having time to cook for myself ever, I finally picked a gloomy-ish day to stay in and spend the better half of the afternoon in my kitchen at home. After a brief disaster wherein I broke a jar of coconut oil then stepped on the glass like…

Vegan Ginger “Beef”

Weirdly enough, we are kind of spoiled here in Alberta with vegan western-ized Chinese food. Even while in Vancouver last week with a ton of vegan options available to me, I still found myself pining for all of my favourites. One of my favourite places growing up in our small town happened to double as a Chinese…

Roasted Vegetable Skillet Lasagna! PASTA PUNX PREVAIL!

My obsession with my cast iron skillets continues! After a long week, I decided I would like to spend my Saturday evening in, alone, eating pasta. As one does. I had half a box of lasagna noodles in the back of the pantry just waiting to be enjoyed, but I haven’t had the patience lately for…

“I feel full after the risotto.”

TODAY I CAME HOME AND CHANGED IMMEDIATELY INTO MY FLEECE PYJAMAS AND THEN MADE RISOTTO FOR THE FIRST EVER TIME, AND NOW I AM CURLED UP EATING THE RISOTTO AND DRINKING THE REST OF THE CHEAP WINE THAT DOESN’T GO INTO THE RISOTTO. THEN I WATCHED THIS EPISODE OF SEINFELD BECAUSE IT IS TOO GOOD…

2015: The Summer of the Charcuterie ft. Sundried Tomato Dill Cheeseballs

Is it weird for a vegan to suddenly obsess and browse pages of artisanally crafted cheeseboards for her newfound charcuterie habit? Because I’m pretty positive that I want to eat charcuterie style for the rest of my life. Between spending hot summer days outside at the farmer’s markets, sweating in the kitchen, or just generally…

Crust Punk French Onion Soup

I mean, I guess this soup isn’t all that crusty, but after the Crust Punk Mac n’ Cheese happenings in T.O.F.U Magazine this month, a friend and I decided I just needed to upthepunx on here generally. I had written a French Onion soup recipe once before a few years back, but decided yesterday that…

NO FAIL MAC N NOT CHEESE.

  If you have followed The Cozy Vegan for awhile, you’ll note that I have a certain affinity for vegan mac n cheese! I have written many mac n not cheese recipes for you cutie pies in the past, but I think I have finally landed on a real winner! I’ve experimented with so many….
