Gluten Free & Vegan in Toronto - Kupfert & Kim



We've just returned from a fantastic holiday in Canada, visiting family and enjoying the incredible Summery Weather (compared to the UK). I thought I would share with you some of the places where we ate when we visited Toronto. I've already written about a couple of them before but we revisited them this time and the food was still awesome! The lunch we ate on our first visit to Toronto was so delicious I couldn't wait to tell you about it so I've written a short post about the place today and I'll be writing another post about the food we ate on our second visit to Toronto soon.

Rucola Cream Soup - Guest Post from Jona of Oh Wholly Vegan


One of the most gratifying outcomes from writing a blog is friendship! I've been fortunate to meet many, many amazing and talented people from all over the world and I'm excited to introduce you to one of these awesome and inspiring people, Jona Friedri of Oh Wholly Vegan. Jona is currently living in Prague and set up her blog in January of this year to share her delicious vegan recipes, many of which are gluten free. Pictured below are just a few of her creations, the brussels sprouts recipe is one of my favourites!

Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges with Black Garlic, Chilli & Rosemary GF


Have you ever tried Black Garlic? Sainsbury's recently sent me some to try but I had to do some on-line research first to find out what it was and what best to use it in. Initially I used it in some hummus - big mistake!  It tasted awful! So, intrigued to find vegetables that would compliment the strong bitter-sweet flavour, I reckoned that sweet potatoes or butternut squash might be a good bet!

Salted Roasted Almonds GF SCD


This is one of my favourite snacks and it's the simplest of recipes. I LOVE almonds and they're so good for you - good for your immune system, good for your bones, good for your brain, good for your skin and good for your heart!

Grain Free Lemon Birthday Cake GF SCD


We enjoyed having visitors to stay this weekend and we celebrated my son's birthday with a simple to make birthday cake. Simple because I didn't really want to spend all my time in the kitchen given the limited amount of time we would have together. That said, as you probably know if you're on the SCD, a considerable amount of time is always spent cooking!

Stove Top Vegetable French Cassoulet - Suma Bloggers Network GF SCD


I was going to bring you a slow cooked Vegetable French Cassoulet this week for my second contribution to The Suma Blogger's Network but when I reached into the cupboard and brought out my casserole dish I noticed it was cracked so I decided to prepare it on the stove top instead. All is not lost though since one legend of this historical French dish states that it was originally cooked in a cauldron on top of an open fire so perhaps this stove top version has turned out to be authentic after all.

My February 2015 TVK Box


I took these pictures on the same day I received this box because I didn't trust myself not to open everything in one go and eat them on the very same day! Such an awesome selection this month, I just couldn't wait to get stuck in!
