Healthy Mushroom, Orzo & Swiss Chard Soup Recipe {Vegetarian} & Marathon Update | cookincanuck.com

I officially entered the land of crazy this weekend. As I mentioned before, I am training for my first marathon. In fact, the marathon is less than two weeks away (cue the butterflies). There are times when this thought makes me want to close the blinds, wrap myself in a blanket and eat soup all […]

Grilled Italian Panini Recipe with Zucchini, Summer Squash & Basil {Vegetarian}

I have this little problem that crops up whenever I cook for other people. I am perpetually trying to convince them how easy it is to make a certain dish. Part of it is an “Aww gee, shucks” kind of reaction when they compliment my cooking. But mostly it’s because I want my friends to […]

Grilled Zucchini & Eggplant Parmesan Recipe {Vegetarian} | cookincanuck.com

If you ever thought that grilling vegetarian-style meant nothing more than floppy vegetables and meals that left you craving more, then think again (see Ten Vegetarian Recipes for the Grill). This grilled and healthy version of Eggplant Parmesan is nothing short of spectacular, in both presentation and flavor. The Italian-influenced herbs remind me of some […]

Whole Wheat Pasta Salad Recipe with Beans, Capers & Balsamic Yogurt Dressing

Every summer as a kid, I looked forward to my mum’s pasta salad. It was dressed with mayonnaise, tossed with salmon or chicken (though this version is vegetarian) and, best of all, loaded with briny capers. My husband is not a mayo eater, so if I wanted to feed my family a version of my […]

Ten Vegetarian Recipes for the Grill

After I reported the results of my informal Facebook poll yesterday, I started thinking deeply about vegetarian recipes for the grill. Part of this deep thinking involved perusing my vegetarian recipe index. Vegetarian stews – check, vegetarian soups – check, salads – check, grilled vegetarian dishes – umm, sadly lacking. This post holds my jewels […]

When I posed a question on my Facebook page yesterday, the responses I received shocked the heck out of me. My question was, “I’m planning to do plenty of grilling this summer.

When I was a kid, the only way my parents could get me to eat eggplant was to take me to a Greek restaurant and set an order of Moussaka in front of me. Maybe it was the cheesy layers, smothered in a creamy Bechamel sauce or maybe it was the hypnotic music and alluring […]

Monday was time for a serious detox. I spent the weekend at the Joshua Creek Ranch for Georgia Pellegrini‘s Girl Hunter (more on that in a future post), and happily feasted on venison, smoked turkey, wild game gumbo and maybe a glass of wine or two (or three). Monday was a return to a Meatless […]

This hearty vegan lentil and black bean soup is the perfect comfort food for chilly days. Only 223 calories per generous serving! In the spirit of Meatless Monday, I pulled together a healthy, vegetarian (actually, this one will satisfy those who prefer vegan, too) soup for dinner. Truth be told, I needed something light after […]
