Carrot and Pea Soup
Grilled Marinated Portobello Sandwiches with Avocado
Portobello caps have a wonderfully meaty texture when grilled, making this a wonderful main course alternative if you’re trying to eat meatless occasionally. If you have extra time, let the caps marinate in the vinegar a while before grilling; if you’re pressed for time, you can grill them right away.
Penne with Eggplant Sauce
A classic Italian eggplant sauce gets a healthy makeover! Eggplant can soak up a lot of oil; we’ve reduced the amount here, and added a healthier pasta choice than the standard white pasta. Feel free to increase the hot pepper flakes.
Spicy and Cool Roasted Cauliflower
A delicious contrast between the spicy cauliflower and the cooling yogurt makes this a fabulous vegetable side dish to serve with your favourite curry.
Mashed Cauliflower with Goat Cheese
Cauliflower is high in Vitamin C and contains iron. Cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower have been shown to protect against some forms of cancer. Adding some potato to cauliflower helps it mash to a nicer consistency.
Bulgur and Quinoa Stuffed Peppers
If you’ve never tried bulgur before, this vegetarian stuffed pepper is a perfect place to start. Whole wheat berries that have been steamed, dried and crushed, bulgur is high in fibre, B vitamins and iron.
Loaded Sweet Potato Wedges

Your turn to host the big holiday meal and you’re tired of the same old sides? Try this easy cauliflower side dish, large enough for a crowd, but requiring very little prep.
Smooth Sweet Potato Soup
A warm lunch that’s easy to make for baby, and mom can enjoy some too! Cinnamon is a good “starter spice” for babies. Store leftovers in the refrigerator or freeze in ice cube trays for easy portioning later on.
