Homemade Indian Chickpeas


Last night Julie made her best Indian dish ever. The chickpeas tasted very authentic (we have had issues making our Indian food actually taste Indian).
Side of whole grain rice and crispy broccoli.

Julie's Niece's 6th B-Day Cake




On January 2nd, Julie's niece turned 6, and we made a wonderful vegan chocolate cake with fruits on top. It was really good.

Eggplant + Chickpea Casserole


A few nights back in Montreal, Julie made a wonderful Eggplant and chickpea casserole with Diaya cheese and zucchini.


ChuChi - Vegetarian Restaurant - Montreal








At the end of December, when we were in Montreal, we headed out to ChuChi, a vegetarian restaurant. This was our first visit, and I would recommend anyone to check it out.

Its hard to remember what each of these dishes were, but here i go anyhow:

Appetizer:
Sumosas filled with potatoes and veggies
Bok Choy:
Cooked in some delicious sauce
Veggie "duck":
It wasnt too "fake meat" (unless you like that kind of thing)... pretty tasty.

Tofu with Basil and Peppers:
OMG this was great. My favourite dish of them all.

Christmas Dinner @ Julie's Family




For Christmas Dinner in Montreal, we had:

Vegan Lasagna (Diaya cheese, pasta, tofu, broccoli) = yummy


String Beans, sweet potato mash, mash potatoes, vegan stuffing, potato salad, and tofu balls (marinated). Really tasty food made by non-vegans!
