Mango and Avocado Slaw – Two Ways!

Although I serve this mango and avocado slaw dish with cod as the protein, I adapt the recipe for Hubs.

Do you have picky eaters in your household too? If so, you can make this same dish, but just switch out the protein. So while I make this with fish for me, I cook chicken for him and serve it with the same mango and avocado slaw. And we’re both happy!

Although this is a cod with mango recipe, I adapt it for Hubs who doesn't like fish. If you have a picky eater, just switch out the protein.

Zucchini Tofu Lasagna – A Watery Fix!

My zucchini tofu lasagna turned out unexpectedly amazing, which is why it’s a zucchini lasagna with a twist. Noodle-less lasagna is a great concept in theory but when put into practice with zucchini as a substitute, you may find your favourite Italian cuisine drowning in water.

I was inspired by my sister for this vegetarian lasagna. Her version of zucchini lasagna, while really good flavour-wise, is always super watery. This recipe not only fixes that unwanted flaw, but we actually enjoy the taste and texture just as much as lasagna made with real noodles. What a bonus when you’re trying to avoid carbs!

This zucchini tofu lasagna recipe shows you how to make a non watery lasagna! Learn all the secrets to the watery fix!
