Sunny, simple and flavorful – what else would you expect from a quick Greek fish recipe? Have your fish monger gut and trim the fish if you prefer filets over whole fish. This is perfect whether you choose bass, snapper, sole or even wild salmon.

A wonderfully balanced vinaigrette that has that sweet and tangy thing going on, making it suitable for all sorts of salads. Greek honey has tons of extra flavor so it’s worth swapping out your usual honey for this imported ingredient.

This is an emerald green wonder – gorgeous, fresh and nutritious, the perfect pasta toss.


Here in Montreal, Aux Vivres is a beloved vegetarian restaurant. They’re famous for their Dragon Bowl, which is bowl food at its best. I created my own special bowl food meal with my Mecca Bowl. It’s for vegetarians or anyone with good taste (you can and add either grilled chicken or grilled tofu as the protein component). The colourful arrange of healthy grains, stunning beets, carrots, atop baby greens and anointed with uniquely delectable ginger-garlic vinaigrette I invented makes this a riveting lunch classic in the restaurant chez food (i.e. your kitchen). The trick is to have things ready-to-go and then the assembly is 1,2,3 quick!

This is a kinder, gentler chilli, replete with all the fixins’ that makes this a staying meal but one that’s light on the heat. Sweet paprika goes a long way in the flavor department; the lean turkey, mix of fiber-rich beans and other goodies ensures this dish will become a dinner-time repertoire staple. You can opt for vegetarian with this recipe by swopping out the ground turkey for browned ‘hamburger’ tofu that is available in most health food stores.

Healthy and tasty, easy going, complex carbs. Serve chilled or warm. This big batch is on hand for quick lunches (poached salmon steak or herb infused chicken breast?) or put it alongside an omelette. It is good food, always at the ready. Complex carbs? Sure but nothing else about it is complex. Feel free to change the grains or use other sorts of canned beans or chick peas.

You can use any oatmeal recipe you like or mine Old Fashioned Irish Oatmeal to match up with this easy, oven-method of slow-roasting cranberries. A touch of coconut oil and maple syrup and the oven heat, and they turn out densely flavorful, deeply scarlet and are simply amazing, as a compote or unique topping on oatmeal (ice-cream or cakes).

Refreshing layers of cucumbers, couscous and hummus, all bound with an exotic sumac-kissed vinaigrette, make this a fetching summer salad-in-a-jar.

Pears are overlooked in autumn, as apples take top billing but they are so elegant. Small pears, poached in Earl Grey Tea, with some honey and vanilla are sublime. You can also make these in red wine or apple cider instead of the tea, or use green tea and add orange zest to the brew.
