Vancouver’s Indigo Food Cafe has recently changed locations, to within the Greens Organic & Natural Market on West Broadway.

Miso Sesame Sauce, title

First things first folks. Let’s get one thing straight: this is really all about the sauce! Yes, brown rice bowls are amazing, but really, the options are endless and you can throw in whatever veggies you like.

I am so excited to finally share these Pumpkin Cranberry Gingerbread Muffins with you! Two years ago when I first tried The Best Pumpkin Muffins from the Post Punk Kitchen they became an instant favourite. I made them constantly all of that fall and winter. Last winter I was so busy trying new recipes, that [...]

Pumpkin Cornbread Waffles

I recently came up with these Pumpkin Cornbread Waffles, after a failed search for a pumpkin waffle recipe that suited my tastes, my pantry, and my love of whole grains. I stumbled upon a recipe for similar waffles, and was really disappointed to see that it used cornbread mix (which I’ve never bought and didn’t [...]
