Cookie + Kate

Although I don’t practice a plant-based diet myself, I regularly cook up some of Cookie + Kate’s vegetarian dishes. Why? They’re healthy, creative, and consistently tasty. Kate’s homemade vegetarian chilli is flavourful and smokey, easy to prepare, and keeps well in the freezer - the ideal make-ahead meal. Top it off with cheese or sour cream, or keep it vegan and add lime or cilantro to brighten it up. Enjoy on its own or serve with tortilla chips, bread, or over some baked potatoes and you’re good to go.

Great for: quick, minute-long videos for delicious vegetarian recipes that are sure to win over even the most passionate meat-eaters.
