An almost entirely edible melon bowl holds a rich, vanilla-imbued coconut cream, dukkah (an Egyptian nut and spice sprinkle) and fresh berries. Bursting with flavor, this beauty takes your morning fruit salad to the next level.
Chill your canned coconut milk overnight to get it to separate. Once you’ve scooped out the cream for this dish, reserve the remaining coconut liquid for use in a smoothie tomorrow morning.
In food processor, pulse hazelnuts, sesame seeds, coriander seeds and salt until finely chopped.
In medium bowl, beat cream of coconut milk, agave nectar and vanilla with whisk until fluffy.
Cut a small slice off the bottom of each melon half so the halves sit on a plate. Fill each hollowed melon half with a scoop of coconut mixture, handful of berries, sprinkle of dukkah and a few blossoms, if using. Serve.

This vegan take on classic shepherd’s pie is jam-packed with bold and rich flavours that will ensure no one will miss the meat. While a great source of fibre, lentils also contain the highest amount of folate out of all plant-based foods. Oven ready If you don’t have an ovenproof skillet, you’ll need to transfer cooked lentil filling to a baking dish before topping with mashed sweet potatoes and baking.
Cauliflower has been having a moment lately, and this salad proves exactly why. Tender caramelized cauliflower is crowned in a glorious sweet and savoury crumble that will ensure it a place on your table all month long. Of all tree nuts, pecans have the highest concentration of flavonoids, which offer beneficial anti-inflammatory effects, and they also protect your cells from oxidative damage. Crumble perfection This crumble topping is too good not to use it on other preparations. Sprinkle over a carrot ribbon salad to add some extra pizzazz, use as a glorious garnish on a soup or stew, or consider generously spooning over your next vegetable “steak” to add some delicious textural variation.
This gloriously comforting dish gets its creamy lusciousness from a can of white beans. Feel free to use whatever vegetables you have on hand instead of broccoli. Pass the pasta Instead of regular pasta, consider serving this sauce over zucchini noodles, carrot noodles, or cooked spaghetti squash.
This nut-free take on classic queso dip is everything you want and more. Paired with chips, crackers, or crudités, this creamy, zesty, smoky, and oh-so-satisfying dip is easy enough to whip up for a cozy snack or as an appetizer for company. Go nuts! If you’re okay to eat nuts, try substituting sunflower seeds with 1 cup (250 mL) raw cashews.
