When I buy tofu or tempeh, I often choose the smoked versions. Why? Because I know that I’ll have to try less hard to induce flavour. When I’m hungry, I don’t want to have to wait and marinade my tofu first. But if it has already been smoked, then all I have to do is […]

What is Nutritional Yeast? Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast of the strain, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Although this species of yeast is also used for baking, brewing, and winemaking, nutritional yeast is a strain that is unique because its properties have been selected specifically for the purpose of producing nutritional yeast as the final product. Because the yeast has […]
I think mushrooms are delicious. If I want a savoury, rich, flavourful, almost “meaty” taste without any meat involved, I reach for the mushrooms. Mushrooms have “umami” which is considered the fifth taste after sweet, salty, bitter, and sour. Umami can generally be described as a taste which is rich and savoury. You actually possess […]
Previously, I wrote a post about how to substitute the egg in vegan cooking and baking. This week, I will talk about substituting the dairy in recipes in order to have a quality vegan recipe. When you remove the dairy and egg from the recipe, you are not only making your recipe kinder; you are also […]
Kale is a staple here at Green Cuisine. You can pretty much see it at every buffet meal as one of the vegetable options. Here are some reasons to heap some of that kale we love so much onto your plate at your next Green Cuisine meal. Kale is high in fibre which helps your […]
Vitamin B12, or cobalamin, is not produced by plants. Sources of B12 include fish, shellfish, meat, eggs, and dairy products. Therefore, for vegans, it is necessary to supplement their diet with B12. What Does Vitamin B12 Do? Vitamin B12 is important in the function of the brain and nervous system, as well as in the formation […]
Eggs are often an ingredient in recipes for cooking and baked goods. Because there is no such thing as an ethically produced egg, I’ve learned to maneuver my way around the kitchen without using eggs. Usually, the role of an egg is to add moisture, fat, and unity to the rest of the ingredients. Eggs are […]
Green Cuisine has wheatgrass juices on their menu. In fact, they grow their wheatgrass behind the counter. Have you ever wondered why wheatgrass is so popular, and what exactly makes wheatgrass so healthy? Wheatgrass, the Little Grass that Could When you consume wheatgrass, you are consuming the cotyledons of the common wheat plant, triticum aestivum. […]

Sauerkraut is a shredded cabbage side dish, where the cabbage has been left to ferment naturally by lactic acid bacteria. Many cultures have their traditional way of fermenting vegetables (think kimchi in Korea), and sauerkraut (which means “sour cabbage” in German) is the way the Germans and Eastern Europeans like their fermented cabbage. It is salted […]

Amazing vegan cuisine. You will not be disappointed. Like most buffets it can be a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. One of my favorite places hands down.
Also great to bring your non veg friends. There is usually 2-3 really tasty meat imitations like meatballs, ginger tempeh, enchiladas, etc.
Desert is great too.

Delicious food, friendly staff, tons of variety, and best of all Vegan!!! It's so nice to be able to just eat whatever looks good and not worry about it containing animal products.
Obviously the food isn't super healthy for the most part but for the odd night out it is great. Everything was delicious, and tasted like it was home made. The restaurant was quirky and well situated.
I will most certainly return the next time I'm in Victoria and once you go you will too!

Excellent healthy food in a buffet style restaurant, matched with plenty of seating amidst the artistic and calm setting. The perfect place to take my vegan dad for lunch when I'm in between classes.
PS: the corn bread and focaccia are to die for, and always fresh.
