Bean Medley Salad

As I said on Instagram, 4 words to describe this recipe: easy, peasy, lemon squeazy! This is by far one of my favorite go to salads to make. It is perfect for lunch or to serve with dinner as a side. I love the flavors and the beans pack all the protein you need. It only requires 4 key ingredients BUT you can definitely add other ingredients to mix it up. I’ll share my suggestions below but first here’s how to make my bean medley salad.

The best part is it takes less than 20 minutes to make AND only requires one pot (I love my one pot recipes!). Find out how to make this deliciously, unexpected combo below!

Vegan Cashew Cream Pasta

If you try any of my recipes this has to be one of them!! I could not believe how yummy this cashew cream pasta turned out to be. It was inspired by three things. 1) My love for pasta of course! 2) the vegan cooking class I took in the summer hosted by Loblaws and Yam Chops 3) a recent event I attended with Inspired By Nick featuring 2017 food trends (also hosted by Loblaws!). So how did these three things turn in my cashew cream pasta?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, squash is an absolute Fall staple which is why it made its way onto my Thanksgiving menu this year. I was inspired to make this when I came across Jillian Harris’ recent blog post where she shared her Thanksgiving menu with recipes from herself and her cousin’s blog Fraiche Nutrition. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to made it! Fraiche Nutrition has actually been one of my food blog inspirations for a few years now – I’m surprised it has taken me so long to try a recipe from her.

But its never too late!
