Apple Lentil Dal

This Apple Lentil Dal is the perfect start to your year!

Apple Lentil Dal served in bowl with roti bread on the side. Apple Lentil Dal: a go-to recipe

In fact, this easy vegan dal is the perfect dish just about anytime. Even though it's considered good fortune to eat legumes for new year's day, I'll offer that it's good health and fortune to eat legumes every day of the year!

And, this apple lentil dal is so easy and delicious, it's one of those recipes you can make regularly through the year.

This recipe originates from Plant-Powered Families. I have thought about posting this recipe many times. Many times! Why?

Well, it's… (1) easy – really easy (2) family-pleasing (3) as delicious as it is healthy and (4) easy – really easy!

Now, this dal is not exactly traditional. I've been known to stretch traditional definition of a recipe.

Dal: Breaking Tradition

This apple lentil dal isn't particularly traditional in that it doesn't use oil to saute spices, and it doesn't include much in the way of whole spices or 'hot' spices like chiles.

I love the complexities of flavors in Indian cuisine. When we've ordered out, I often find the heat of the spice is too much for family members – even when we request mild.

Also, since beginning to cook oil-free some years ago, many of the takeout dishes are now quite rich for me. Our palates and stomachs really adjust to minimizing oil in cooking.

The muted heat level of the spices is what makes this vegan dal especially family-friendly. I have been making this one for years and our girls have always loved it – even when our youngest (Hope) was a wee girl just a few years old!

Moreover, what is quite untraditional about this apple lentil dal is that it includes chopped apples! AND that is one of the elements that makes it especially delicious.

The apples add a natural sweetness against the earthy cumin and turmeric. And, they offer a slight fresh quality in the lentils. Altogether, it's beautiful and an element you won't want to skip!

Enjoy this recipe, friends, and enjoy the start to our new year. About that – I shared a personal story on youtube today and hopefully some helpful and inspiring tips for creating sustainable change in your own life.

Blessings, everyone… x Dreena

Print Apple Lentil Dal The preparation for this dal-like dish is unfussy, yet the flavor is something morecomplex. Just a few subtle herbs and spices combined with sweet apples and earthyred lentils make this puree simply delectable. It is flavorful without being spicy-hot,so is quite kid-friendly! Course entree, Main CourseCuisine IndianKeyword beans, lentils, stew Ingredients
  • 3 1/2 cups + 1 tbsp water divided
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 – 1 1/4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 cups red lentils rinsed
  • 1 medium apple peeling optional, cored and cut into cubes about 1/2" (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Crushed red pepper flakes or hot sauce to taste optional; see note
  • In a pot over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon of the water, onion, sea salt, oregano, cumin, cinnamon, mustard, and turmeric. Stir through, cover, and cook for 4–5 minutes (keep an eye on it, and add another splash of water if the spices and onion are sticking). Remove the cover and add the lentils and remaining 3 1/2 cups water. Turn heat up to high, and bring the mixture to a boil. Once at a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for about 15 minutes. After 12–15 minutes, add the apple and lemon juice, stir through, and cook for another 5–7 minutes, until the apple has softened a little but isn't entirely mushy. Season with additional sea salt or lemon juice if desired, and serve.
NotesApple Note: An apple that is not entirely sweet (ex: Braeburn or Honeycrisp) is preferable, but use what you have on hand! Spicy Note: For adults, you can kick up the spice by either adding hot sauce at serving or adding crushed red pepper flakes (1/2–1 teaspoon) with the other dried spices at the beginning of cooking. Serving Suggestions: This is delicious over brown short-grain or basmati rice, quinoa, or millet. When cooled, try spreading on tortillas or collard leaves for wraps.

Home Sweet Home Chili: Sweet Potato Chili

The only thing better than a good chili recipe?

A great sweet potato chili recipe!

bowl of sweet potato chili with accents of avocado, sour cream, lime wedges, and cilantro

Sweet potatoes work so beautifully in chili. The spices and flavors in the chili are balanced by the bites of tender, sweet, and comforting sweet potatoes.

I created the original version of this recipe over a decade ago. It first appeared in my 3rd cookbook eat, drink & be vegan. It's different from the original sweet potato chili in that it's just a little heartier and denser with the components of beans, lentils – and of course sweet potatoes!

Plus, I have some beautiful new food photos (thank you Angela). 😋🙏

bowl of sweet potato chili with sliced avocado on top

What I especially love about this chili is that it's hearty as you'd expect with chili, but not heavy.

Chili is delicious, but can feel so heavy after eating. Even a plant-based chili.

But this chili is lighter with red lentils, and the sweet potatoes also give it a lightness. Because even though they are hearty, they digest easily.

Moreover, the spices in this chili are really well-balanced. Flavorful without being too hot-spicy. Of course, you can amp up the hot-spicy if you want. I keep the heat level fairly mild, to begin with. That's always an easy tweak you can make, adding hot sauce or other extra heat before serving.

Definitely try the chili with guac, avocado cream, or cashew cream, as in the recipe notes.

Enjoy, enjoy my friends! I wish you delicious eats and blessings… x Dreena

Vegan Gift Guide: wellness, beauty, fashion, cooking & more

I've compiled a vegan gift guide for the last couple of years. This year includes a few favorites, few newbites, and a discount code ONLY for you!

Vegan Gift Ideas

This year's list is segmented into wellness gifts, fashion and beauty gifts, as well as food and cooking gifts. So let's go!

Wellness Gifts Dohm Sound Machine

This is the sound machine I have and use nightly. I like to have diffused noise, but don't love the white noise sound that most machines offer. This one has soothing ambient sounds of rushing air, rather than that electric-sounding white noise. Here is the same model on amazon.ca, just not available in black.

Bloom Daily Planner

Last year I began a daily gratitude journal, and did so in a simple, inexpensive calendar. It's made a big difference for me. We know that gratitude has a powerful impact on our thoughts, beliefs, and daily lives. Moreover, I have found using my daily planner helpful to connect my daily gratitude with my activities and appointments for the day. I prefer a tangible journal to my phone or any other digital option. I'm sharing this Bloom version (Cdn link), but you may want to shop around on amazon for another that suits you, and that might be an even better deal.

Complement: ESSENTIAL Vegan Supplement (and 10% OFF!)

Personal story: Last year I had a blood test. The first one since my last pregnancy 12 years ago. That's shocking enough, I know (this is what happens with moms, right)?!

My vitamin D levels were woefully low. Then, more recently seeing my naturopath concerning stiffness/pain in areas, she advised I increase my EPA intake. I was mistakenly taking a DHA product, since my Complement stock ran low and I haven't been able to get shipments through my US mailbox. Very long story made short: I've placed an order to get my Complement to Canada, because it truly is the most comprehensive vegan supplement.

When I interviewed Julieanna Hever recently, she explained how we need to be mindful of notable nutrients: B12, D, DHA/EPA, iodine, Vitamin K2, and zinc. Complement formulates all of these in their "plus" capsule (and the spray will soon include it as well)!

And guess what? You get a discount code on this too! Purchase here for 10% off, using code WELLNESS10 at checkout. Offer ends December 5th.

Fashion Gifts Vegan Necklaces

I worked with Christy Robinson to bring you these two beautiful necklace designs. Either would be a lovely, affordable gift!

1) Vegan Plant-Power in recycled sterling silver

Vegan Gift Guide

2) Vegan Gem Necklace in recycled sterling silver with real natural gemstones

Lululemon Align Joggers

These aren't a typical pick for a vegan gift guide, but guys, they are dreamy!

I did a video about the align leggings, and they are still my first pick for yoga. Soon after I discovered the Lululemon align joggers.

vegan gift guide: lululemon joggers

They are loose on the legs, have pockets, and are dreamy soft! I wear a size up from the leggings, because I like a looser fit for joggers. I love them for yin and restorative classes, but also just for casual wear. Get yo'self a pair!

And if the traditional leggings are what you need, you can't go wrong with the Align Leggings.

Bath and Beauty Pacifica Liptint

I have posted about Pacifica perfumes before. Our daughters love those.

And I love these new liptints! They go on smooth and aren't sticky – you know, when your hair gets glommed on to your lip gloss? #nothanks 🤨 These give a moisture-rich touch of color with a light natural fragrance. I wear mine daily! (Pacifica products on amazon.ca)


More of a splurge than the liptint, because it's an investment in your precious skin. And I'll tell you, I've heard from some of you that did take advantage of the OCosmedics bonus offer and loving the products.

Also, I've heard from people that are so impressed with the kind customer care that Jackie provided. She consults with you online, sends the products with extra notes, and offers follow-up. That's rare when purchasing skincare – or anything. Gift yourself or someone else you love. (Pssst: tell Jackie that Dreena sent you and she'll give you a bonus treat!)

Love Beauty & Planet Gift Box

These bath products are lovely and this set is very affordable. With shampoo, conditioner, and dry shampoo it's a sweet, simple gift for teenagers or anyone!

Dr. Hempster Bath Bombs

Vegan and fragranced with essential oils, these bath bombs would be appreciated by anyone that loves a good soak! (Here are natural vegan bath bombs on amazon.ca.)

vegan gift guide: bath bombs Treats & Snacks That's It Dark Chocolate Fruit Truffles

I wish I could try these! I found them on amazon but they cannot be delivered to Canada. 😫 These look quite delicious, using just fruit and dark chocolate, with a touch of sea salt. If you are fortunate enough to try them, let me know how they taste, k?!

Pumpkin Seeds

Indeed an unexpected entry for a gift guide! But I love these pumpkin seeds, and have been having a darn hard time finding them in Canada recently. 😫 I never cared for raw pumpkin seeds until these. They have 2 ingredients: pumpkin seeds and sea salt. They taste roasted, yet are sprouted and raw – and also oil-free. To buy in stores they are usually pricey, usually $22. Amazon.com has the best price I've seen, and I haven't yet found them on amazon.ca.

Home Cooks Self-Sharpening Chef's Knife

Wait, cooks should want a fancy-schmancy knife, right? Well, yes, but then we have to keep it sharpened. Not all of us have the interest or time to do so. Make it easy for your vegan home cook, get them a self-sharpening knife! (amazon.ca link)

vegan gift guide: self-sharpening knife Eco-Friendly (and odor-free!) Cutting Board

I have had this cutting board for over a decade. I'ts simply the best cutting board – evah! (amazon.ca link) Read this post for more details.

Vegan Yogurt Starter

While I don't make yogurt at home, I know many of you do. So, here's a vegan starter for you savvy DIY'ers! (and here's one on amazon.ca)

vegan gift guide: vegan yogurt starter Instant Pot

Natural follow to the yogurt starter is the Instant Pot, because homemade yogurt-making is one of its functions. But, you'll use it for far more! (amazon.ca link)

Instant Pot

Now, once you have an IP, you need a couple of extra sealing rings. Don't make the same mistake I did, 😭 get yourself an extra sealing ring – or two! Another idea great gift is an IP steamer basket. (amazon.ca sealing ring).

vegan gift guide: instant pot accessories Breville Food Processor

The investment piece in this vegan gift guide: a food processor that will get the job done!

I have recommended the Breville food processor and toaster oven in my previous posts. And repeating the food processor this year! Why? Because I have heard from some of you that have picked it up and really, really love it. You might consider it a splurge, but it's actually an investment. You will get your money back many times over making batches of hummus, dips, burger mixtures, and more.

Breville Sous Chef Food Processor: Vegan Gift Guide


Of course I will offer up my cookbooks as a lovely vegan gift! And, even though it won't be released until next year…

…my next title, Dreena's Kind Kitchen, is already available for preorder (here is amazon.ca link) 🤩

I hope this roundup gives you some gift inspiration – and that you take in the discounts for yourself as well. Happy shopping! x Dreena

Chickpea Ratatouille

Anyone remember this Chickpea Ratatouille?

bowl of ratatouille topped with chopped avocado

This popular recipe comes from my second book and was featured on my site a while back. However, when my site was updated and an old recipe software phased out, this beloved Chickpea Ratatouille was displaced.

Chickpea Ratatouille: Oldie but Goodie

This is one of those "oldie but goodie" recipes.

Often I hear from people about recipes they just truly love from my first cookbooks.

It's funny, because most of us eagerly await new products: new cookbooks, new technology, new appliances, new clothes.

But sometimes, those oldies are truly the goodie. Like that cherished comfy blanket that has been passed down from your parents… those soft pajama pants fraying at the bottom… a classic movie or song.

Recipes are like that too. We anticipate the arrival of the new ones, when sometimes there are real jewels in the pages of cookbooks from ten years ago – or beyond.

Bowl of chickpea ratatouille with bread on the side

Not that the new recipes aren't great too! Of course they are.

Unfortunately, we just sometimes push those old reliables to the back burner. (Punny, Dreena) Hey, I do it too!

So I give back an old reliable to you today, this delicious, nutritionally-abundant Chickpea Ratatouille.

The original version of this recipe calls for oven-baking. You can also cook in an instant pot or stovetop. In fact, the saute of the onions might offer an even better flavor to the dish!

Either way, this is a pretty simple recipe. The ingredients might look a little long, but it's mostly spices. Not an abundance of chopping.

Serving Ideas: Chickpea Ratatouille

These are my favorite ways to serve up this dish, and I'd like to know if you guys have other ideas. If so, please comment.

  • Over brown rice or quinoa: This is how we eat it most often. Especially easy if you batch-cook the rice or quinoa ahead of time, and then just reheat.
  • With pasta: Why not toss it into cooked pasta much like a marinara? In fact, if you have leftovers, you can combine some of the ratatouille with marinara to craft a heartier pasta sauce.
  • Ooooh, I just thought of this one. Heat up leftovers to top a creamy pasta sauce like my Creamy Fettuccine. YUM!
  • Greens, baby: As I say, "it's all about those beans 'n greens"… so why not serve up over a bed of wilted kale or spinach. Some crusty bread on the side, I call that delicious!
  • Leftover wraps: Wraps are always a good way to use leftovers, and this ratatouille is no exception! Roll up with some of the cooked grains, or with extra veg, greens, cooked sweet spuds – your call!
  • Your ideas?…. please share in the comments!

Alright, we have everything in place but the recipe. Here it is, friends. Enjoy, and share your thoughts!

x Dreena

Print Chickpea Ratatouille This dish is much like ratatouille in appearance but uses chickpeas and an original spice combination. The flavors are complex and the preparation minimal! Course dinner, entree, Main CourseKeyword beans, chickpeas, low-fat, oil-free, tomatoes Ingredients

Vegan Meatloaf: Autumn Dinner Loaf (vegan, gluten-free, oil-free)

It's fully fall. Time for soups, stews, hearty casseroles, and even… planning for the holidays!

I know, that sounds early, but we have Canadian Thanksgiving in October, and soon after we are in the swing of holiday season. We need recipes we can rely on for the holidays – and recipes that are relatively easy!

This year I made my Autumn Dinner Loaf for our Thanksgiving dinner, and paired it with kale salad, mashed potatoes, and vegan gravy.


I recorded a video making this recipe, so you can watch it and see just how easy it is! 

EASY and DELICIOUS VEGAN Meatloaf: Autumn Dinner Loaf | vegan dinner recipes | vegan meat substitutes | vegan recipe ideas | how to make a vegan meatloaf | vegan recipe ideas | meatloaf recipe vegan | homemade vegan recipes || Plant Powered Kitchen #vegandinner

So today I'm sharing a vegan meatloaf recipe that I know you'll enjoy. Many of you already know and love the No-Fu Loaf from LTEV.

This Autumn Dinner Loaf from  Plant-Powered Families is also sensational. Quite different from the no-fu loaf, as it's made with a base of grains, almonds, and vegetables rather than the lentil base of No-fu.

EASY and DELICIOUS VEGAN Meatloaf: Autumn Dinner Loaf | vegan dinner recipes | vegan meat substitutes | vegan recipe ideas | how to make a vegan meatloaf | vegan recipe ideas | meatloaf recipe vegan | homemade vegan recipes || Plant Powered Kitchen #vegandinner

This vegan meatloaf is also especially easy to make! So, if you're feeling overwhelmed with holiday cooking but still want a special main, this is your recipe. Seriously. Everything into the food processor, then into the oven. Done!

And, if you're feeling a little more adventurous with holiday cooking and want to build a full menu around this vegan meatloaf, hop over to this post for inspiration.

Please let me know how you enjoy the recipe! x Dreena

EASY vegan meatloaf: Autumn Dinner Loaf from Print Autumn Dinner Loaf This comforting dinner loaf is perfect for the holidays, but may become a year-round favorite! Serve with Home-Style Gravy, along with baked potatoes and green beans. Serves 5–6 Course entree, Main Course Ingredients
  • 2 cups carrot sliced
  • 2/3 cup whole raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onion
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 - 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary or 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground dried sage
  • 1 medium-large clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 lightly packed cups cooked and cooled brown rice
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp rolled oats
Topping Options (see note)
    BBQ Topping:
    • 21/2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
    • 1 - 2 tablespoons rolled oats
    Dry Topping:
    • 2 tablespoons almond meal
    • 1 tablespoon rolled oats
    • Pinch of sea salt
    • Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly wipe a glass loaf pan with a smidgen of oil. Line the bottom of the pan with a strip of parchment paper (place it in so it hangs over the short ends of the pan; this helps for easier removal of the veggie loaf from the pan). In a food processor, add the carrots, almonds, green onions, nutritional yeast, Dijon mustard, sea salt, rosemary, sage, garlic, and lemon juice. Process until the mixture smooths out and starts to become sticky, scraping down the bowl as needed. Add the rice and puree. At this point the mixture should be sticky enough to hold slightly when pressed. Add the oats and process through. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan and evenly distribute. If using the BBQ topping, spread the sauce over the top of the loaf, and then sprinkle on the oats. If using the dry topping, combine the almond meal, oats, and salt in a small bowl, and then sprinkle over the loaf. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 33–35 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 5–7 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand for about 5 minutes, then slice and serve.
