homemade vegan pizza from chasity @ my healthy chef

who doesn’t like vegan pizza?? i’ve actually scouted out a great organic vegan pizza here in toronto, but it’s a little pricey- so this is perfect for recreating it!

Red Lentil and Spinach Curry (Vegan Tikka Masala)

red lentil and spinach curry (vegan tikka masala) from janet @ the taste space

janet got another top 3 pick! and i’m not surprised, look how delicious that looks?


bite-sized turtle candy bars from rachel@ almonds & avocados

i remember in my prevegan days i loooved turtles, especially at christmas, so i love that rachel not only veganized them, but healthified them!

my top picks

favourite main event: indian-spiced bean and tomato soup from tammy & david @ our neck of the woods

indian spices with tomato is such a warming combination! I love that this was prepared as a soup instead of a stew over rice!


favourite sensible snack: chai-spiced holiday nog from veronica @ veggie v’s vegan adventure

i chose a “nog” recipe last week too but i couldn’t resist. clearly i’m into indian spices this week too. love the combination of the spices with the holiday drink!

favourite indulgence: guilt-free pecan pie cookies from megan @ allergy free alaska

these are super clean and grain-free to boot, and look how delicious they look!

now it’s time for healthy vegan friday # 21!

my submission for the week:


spiced hazelnut milk

this homemade nut milk is perfect for cold weather! the spices warm you inside and out while the hazelnuts make a luxurious and sweet non-dairy milk. perfection!

  1. I can’t believe Chanukah is already over now, it went by so fast. I’ve decided that I’m going to adopt Christmas this year too, since I don’t want the holidays to be over yet! Besides, there are still so many delicious festive foods to enjoy, as your roundup makes so abundantly clear. There’s plenty left to celebrate!

  2. Another great week of submissions! Everything looks amazing, I'll definitely have to peruse more carefully when I have more time! I have my eye on those turtle bars, chai spiced nog and pecan pie cookies! Yum!
