Chicken Crusted with Almond and Flax

Posted by & filed under recipe.

Richard Potvin has shared his great recipe for an alternative to traditional breadcrumb-crusted chicken. It’s flavourful, moist and by using a variety of ingredients offers a larger range of nutritional benefits compared to breaded chicken. For those who follow a gluten-free diet, or cook for someone who does, this recipe is naturally gluten-free without sacrificing… Read more »

Many people I know stay away from making jams, but it doesn’t have to be a daunting task! This recipe is flexible, easy and fast, doesn’t require purchasing any pectin or thickener, and no need to figure out how to can, as it can be easily kept in the freezer and thawed as needed.

Mango & Fig Smoothie

Posted by & filed under recipe.

While I know most smoothie lovers usually use fresh or frozen fruit, reconstituting dried fruit is another great alternative, especially in the winter months when fresh fruit is hard to find and can be very expensive. The other benefit to using dried fruit is that you can buy in bulk (wholesale ordering is coming up… Read more »

Barhi Caramel Sauce

This is a great alternative to some of the traditional caramel recipes I’ve seen. Not only does this recipe work for most diets out there, it actually tastes great! I love it spread on muffins and other desserts, as a dip for fruit, drizzled on ice cream, and baked into desserts. The Barhi date is… Read more »


Chopped Veggie Salad

Posted by & filed under recipe.

I don’t know about you, but in the summer I try to avoid turning on the stove or oven as much as I can; it’s just too hot! This salad is tasty, easy to put together and transport, making it perfect for potlucks, picnics and any time you need a healthy lunch on-the-go!


Cashew Cream of Leek Soup

Posted by & filed under recipe.

Even though it’s now spring and the days and nights are getting warmer, there’s still time for a few more soups before it’s too hot out! This easy and tasty soup is great to try if you’re new (and even if you’re not) to using cashew cream instead of dairy for those creamy bases. Give… Read more »


Sesame Snack Bars

Posted by & filed under article, recipe.

Fall is fast approaching, the weather is starting to change and summer farmer’s markets will be closed before we know it. Not to mention the new school year is just around the corner. As many people are now getting busier, including us at Rancho Vignola, it gets more tempting to buy quick snacks from the… Read more »
