Recipe from Cookin’ Canuck

As the title suggests, this recipe uses lentils, black beans, smoked paprika and a can of diced tomatoes. This vegan soup is heavy, warm and packed with flavour. Perfect for the cold winter nights we’re about to experience soon. For a more delicious result, garnish it with a dollop of sour cream and diced avocados.

You would not believe how this recipe only needs concentrated tomato paste as the base of the sauce, but it’s true. This recipe is so easy to make, you can whip this up in less than 30 minutes. It makes it the ideal recipe to make for those busy weeknights. If you want an alcohol-free version, switch the vodka with vegetable stock or water. It won’t make much of a difference.

These cookies are so fudgy, you’d think it was a brownie. This is probably the most pantry-friendly dessert recipe out there. All it needs is flour, baking powder, vegetable oil, granulated and icing sugars, and of course, eggs. Another great thing about this is that you don’t need any heavy machinery. Pick up a wooden spoon and a large bowl and you’re set to go. The only downside is waiting for it the cookie dough to chill. To achieve the crinkling effect, the dough must be chilled in the fridge for at least 3 hours. Torture, I know. But the great thing about it is you can keep this dough in the freezer until you want to bake it again.

The pantry ingredients in this recipe might be a little bit more advance. It uses sriracha, sesame oil, and rice vinegar. If those are not in your pantry yet, it’s not a bad idea to invest in them. This cold pasta dish is great for packed lunch. You can use any crisp vegetables you’d like. This particular recipe uses carrots and red bell peppers, but you can also use broccoli (even the stems), snap peas, and cucumber.
