Pantry black bean soup

posted on Sunday, April 5th, 2020

Maybe you’re grocery shopping less and you want to use what’s in your pantry. Maybe you just want something that’s warm, hearty, and comforting in a way only soup can be. This pantry-friendly recipe can accommodate whatever you have on hand, or don’t. Most of the soup’s flavour comes from the black beans and the […]


Make Your Life Slightly More Delicious with Homemade Salad Dressing

posted on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020

Modern life is about managing a delicate balance in so many things—cost and convenience, quality and time, effort and reward. But some things are just a clear win: that’s how I’ve come to feel about making my own salad dressing. I know, you’re thinking, “Salad dressing? Salad dressing of all things?” Yes, salad dressing. I […]


The Perfect, Toasty Winter Snack: Tamari Almonds

posted on Saturday, February 29th, 2020

Mid-winter brings a welcome introspective energy. I’ve been lucky to take part in yoga teacher training, which means my weekends are immersed in quiet reflection, movement, learning, and building community. Long days at the yoga studio are rich with learning and connection. But guess what: even yogis get hangry! This is why it’s crucial to […]


The Winter Salad That Keeps on Giving: Roasted Vegetable and Lentil Salad with Herbed Dressing

posted on Wednesday, January 1st, 2020

Recipe courtesy of Sarah Bradley, adapted from Alive Magazine. We’re nearing winter, when kitchen creations centre on root vegetables, grains, pulses, and other locally available goodies from Karma. But for now, we are still lucky to have access to some bright, colourful produce that brings memories of warmer days to our kitchens. For those of […]


Chocolate Bark, 3 Ways

posted on Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019

Recipe and photo courtesy of Kyla Winchester. Whether or not you celebrate Christmas, December is a busy time of year. There are parties to attend, relatives and friends to visit, gifts to buy, and food to make. Fortunately, homemade chocolate bark can help with several of these things, in a fairly low-stress and delicious way. […]


Comfort me with noodles

posted on Thursday, November 7th, 2019

As soon as I started to think about comfort food, the phrase “comfort me with apples” popped into my head. I remembered it as the title of a book of food writing by a former Toronto Star columnist. However, it turns out it’s also the title of a food critic’s memoir and a quote from […]


Easy, Crowd-pleasing Autumn Apple Crisp

posted on Tuesday, October 1st, 2019

Recipe and photo courtesy of Kyla Winchester. My dad was the one who cooked in our family, and I can only conclude he didn’t like making pies. For Thanksgiving, he made apple crisp, or occasionally ‘pumpkin pudding’—which as an adult I now realize is an easy way to get sweet, creamy pumpkin filling and vanilla […]


Easy Lentil Walnut Dip

posted on Wednesday, September 4th, 2019

Summer may be winding down, but the days are still long, the sun has been gracing us with warmth well past sunset, and the neighbourhood is buzzing with activity, from park picnics to street festivals to spontaneous porch conversations. During this time of abundant energy, I find it’s nice to find quiet moments between activity […]


Butternut Squash and Shiitake Mushroom Soup

posted on Wednesday, September 4th, 2019

I learned to cook after I moved away from home. Because my dad stayed home when I was born so my mom could go back to work, he was the one who cooked in our household, and this was unusual in the 70s when I was born. Surprisingly, it seems to still not be that […]


A hearty salad to celebrate the mid-summer bounty

posted on Monday, August 5th, 2019

Summer’s later-than-usual return brought a bounty of colourful produce overflowing from our beloved fruit stands, farmers’ markets, and of course Karma! From brilliant red peppers to sunshiney yellow summer squash to deep violet eggplants, vegetables beg to be sliced, tossed with olive oil and a simple shake of salt and pepper, and eaten fresh from […]
