Zucchini Salad with Vegan Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

    Our neighbourhood recently got the addition of not one, but two new grocery stores. Both opened in early August, and they are located a mere 800 meters from each other! What a treat for foodies. I just snooped around Les 5 saisons for the first time yesterday. It’s a high-end store where you can expect to …

Blueberry-Peach Yogurt Pie with Whole-Wheat Crust

    This is a quickie, impromptu, post. I try to keep Craving Greens’ Facebook page interesting by adding photos of dishes that do not necessarily make it to the blog. As this yogurt pie got a lot of attention last week, I decided to share the recipe with you albeit having taken pictures of …

Raw Kale Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing

    I like nice people. My neighbour Louis surprised me with a bagful of fresh kale from his garden yesterday. He’s one of the lucky few to enjoy a plot at the community garden next to our apartment building. Over the past few weeks, he’s generously shared with me some of his plants and …

Mexican Quinoa Salad

We returned from our trip a few days ago and I spent the weekend easing back into the routine. Grocery shopping, yogurt-making, unpacking… pretty much in that order. You know, priorities. On Sunday, we went for a long bike ride to Parc Jean Drapeau on Sainte-Hélène and Notre-Dame islands. There is a world festival going on and …

Veggie Pâté

So I might have lied to you. Well… not so much lying as withholding some truth. A few weeks ago, I told you that I don’t own a food processor. That was not entirely true. See, I have a mini food processor, but it’s so small that I barely use it. It’s one of the …

Zucchini-Feta Squares with Tahini-Yogurt Sauce

I settled on calling this recipe zucchini-feta “squares”, after days of struggling to find the appropriate word. English is my second language after all. But even in French I couldn’t figure it out. This dish seemed indescribable. At first, I thought I’d call it a loaf, but the outcome is quite flat and not in the usual loaf shape. …

Healthy Maple Granola

    Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadian readers! What are you up to for the long weekend? I’m off to Toronto for a friend’s wedding. You might know that Action de Grâce is not really celebrated among French Quebecers. Actually, it’s not until I moved to Toronto in 2001 that I became aware of how different this holiday is …

One of my most loyal supporters is my sister-in-law Julie, who visits my blog nearly every day despite my shameful lack …

Roasted Portobello Mushroom Dip

I was raised vegetarian. Needless to say, I love vegetables. I don’t care too much for fennel and its licorice taste but other than that, veggies and I share a lifelong love story. That’s right. They love me, too. Mushrooms are without a doubt one of my favourite vegetables. I love how their taste and …

Corn-Tomato Salad with Fresh Mozzarella

Today marked the first day of fall, and consequently my first day of denial. I consoled myself with this beautiful crunchy and summery corn-tomato salad for dinner. Where I grew up in Québec, we have a summer tradition called “épluchette de blé d’Inde” during corn season. It literally means corn husking, in québécois. It’s a …
