Nothing compares to the sweet taste of beets flavoured by the tanginess of horseradish. Sprinkle some salty, creamy feta cheese, and there you go, a work of art!
I am not a big fan of quinoa, but I give it a try every now and then. It’s relatively easy to make and I like the cumin scented veggies. President’s Choice quinoa boxes come with the full recipe – worth giving it a try when you feel like eating healthy (and you ran out of ideas). I am not going to reproduce the recipe here since it’s photographed below.
I read this recipe in a raw cooking recipes book and ever since I had first tried it, I fell in love with its natural flavor. This weekend, I added some sour cream to the marinade (I know, not very raw of me, but I never said I eat raw food only…).
If you’re looking for an easy, healthy and vegetarian salad, this one meets all three criteria. If you’re lucky, you can get the avocado for 50 – 90 cents at Superstore, making it for a very cheap salad too! The secret is the vinaigrette: always get a good quality balsamic vinegar (I recommend the ones from Lina’s Market). And always mix the vinaigrette in advance, letting it rest for at least 5 – 10 minutes before using it.
I had a very tasty dinner last night, so I thought I’d share: a salad made of various veggie, tofu and pickled herring. The three went so well together that I became a fan. I got the organic tofu (firm) and the pickled herring from Superstore. For the salad, you will need: 1 medium beetroot, 2 carrots, 2 small apples, 1 celery root, salt, pepper, raisins and 1 Tbsp sour cream.
Take advantage of the new crop of green beans available at local farmers’ market with this really easy recipe. Ingredients: green beans, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, 2-3 garlic cloves.

This salad is so easy to make and so tasty, that you’ll wanna eat it all at once! It’s also rather cheap to make, since you’ll need 1 pack of crab flakes (the ones you find in Superstore or Safeway, it’s really crab flavored pollock), 2-3 potatoes, 1 celery stick, 300 gr. olives, 1 carrot, 4-5 cherry or grape tomatoes (for decoration and as a side), mustard, dry basil, dry parsley, oil, salt, pepper.
Ingredients: 200 gr. Bocconcini cheese, 4 tomatoes, 2 green onions, fresh basil, salt, pepper, olive oil, balsamic vinegar. Optional, 2-4 Kalamata olives, 1 boiled egg, 4-5 lettuce leaves.
