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 […]

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 […]
Kombucha comes from China, where its use has been documented since 220 BCE. There it was known as the “tea of immortality”. It emerged later in 400 CE in Japan, where it derived its present name when a Korean physician named Kombu treated the Japanese Emperor Inyko with the fermented tea. “Cha” is the Chinese, […]

Affordably priced and healthy vegan food, centrally located in the downtown core. While the setting is lacking ambiance, there is also a beautiful courtyard where you can sit outside on the nicer days. They have an amazing selection of "healthy" desserts, and they list their ingredients for every food item, making it easy for those with any sensitivities to know what they can or cannot have.
Their best secret though is their amazingly priced juice, smoothie, and "milk"shake menu. Most other places in town charge upwards of $8-9 for a fresh pressed juice, but they are much more affordable here, and of the same quality of other places.

Reasonably priced and delicious vegan food what more could you want?
When I first started visiting the cafeteria style buffet took some getting used too but I do like the food by weight concept being I can spend less if I’m not necessarily super hungry.
The coffee is also a perk because it’s good and dairy free.
My only gripe would be the location of the dirty tray and dishes bin it’s kinda hidden off to the side and the first couple times I had no idea where to put my plates after I was finished.

My favourite restaurant of all time, I go there every chance I get when I am in the city. The food is really delicious and there is so much variety. Everything looks and smells so good that I often fill up my plate with as much as I can. You don't even need to be vegan to appreciate it. The first time I visited I was with a friend who was craving bacon and complaining about veganism, once inside she was was going on about how great the food was.
Also a great place to meet cool people. I once met the federal leader of the Communist Party there.

Awesome buffet-style vegan/vegetarian place! It is still decked out in 90s decor, which has a certain charm?? So many options, with every ingredient listed. You can get soups, salads, tempeh, wedge fries, sushi and more. Fresh, healthy food, desserts, juices, smoothies... lots of choices!
