With lockdown in full force as a result of COVID-19, things are starting to get creative in the kitchen amongst our editorial team. Thankfully, we’ve got numerous Canadian food bloggers to refer to when we’re in need of some cooking inspiration, and with our fridges running on low, grocery store lines long, and our stocks of dry goods looking *ahem* dryer than ever, we couldn’t be more grateful for their ingenuity.
Here’s three easy, quick, and delicious recipes that STYLE Canada editors swear by under pandemic circumstances.
Ambitious Kitchen’s Vegan + Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Banana Bread
Elise Gasbarrino, STYLE Canada’s Managing Director
“My sister started making this recipe years ago and it’s become a favourite among our friends and family. It’s the perfect blend: a treat that doesn’t feel terrible for you. Needless to say its been a great addition to this week’s (constant) eating schedule. Enjoy!”
Cassandra Wardrope’s Easy Baked Shrimp With Feta And Jammy Tomatoes
Anastasia Barbuzzi, STYLE Canada’s Digital Editor
“It’s got to be @tomato__tomatoe‘s Easy Baked Shrimp with Feta and Jammy Tomatoes. Everything that Cassandra creates makes my mouth water, so I had to take advantage of the opportunity that self-isolation provided me to cook solely from the panty and freezer, and I’m so glad I did. Fresh tomato sauce, herbs, juicy shrimp, and briny cheese are among my favourite things, and they all melt together perfectly here. Plus, its an easy dish to put together and takes no time at all. A ‘highbrow freezer meal’ indeed.”
Oh She Glows’ 8-Minute Pantry Dal: Two Ways
Lucie Mink, STYLE Canada’s Brand Manager
“This recipe is a staple for me when I’m in a pinch, out of groceries, or feeling lazy. It’s an easy yet delicious classic I find myself going back to time after time. It’s full of veggies and plant-based protein from the lentils, which I find easier to digest than beans. It tastes even better as leftovers the next day.”
