I tried all the vegan soft serve in Ottawa. I probably missed a few but I did try a lot of them. I have lived in Ottawa for two years and I was still transitioning from vegetarian to vegan when I moved here. I don’t remember having a lot of soft serve in Vancouver when I did eat dairy. I only remember having it at McDonald’s and buffets. I didn’t even know vegan soft serve was a thing until I moved to Ottawa. I tried six places The Merry Dairy, Oddburger, Little Jo Berry’s, Chocolate Favouris, IKEA, PastelXCoco, and 2 bonuses dole whip from Cinnaholic and the plant based dilly bar from Dairy Queen. I also went to Mavericks but they have been having supply issues and the soft serve is currently not vegan. Let me know if I missed any and maybe I’ll update the post in the future.  The Merry Dairy was the first vegan soft serve I had in Ottawa. I remember thinking I had to wait in line to get into the store only to learn soft serve was at the truck with no line. I was super excited that I

October 16, 2017Attempting to make recipes shared on facebook delish how to make stuffed eggplant parmesan


I know its been awhile and in another post in the future I will give the life update for the last few months.

Since I haven't cooked in awhile I thought it would be fun to try making some of the recipes I have shared on facebook in the past but have never attempted to make before.

The first dish is is from delish How to make stuffed eggplant parmesan and the link is here
Full recipe: http://dlsh.it/vePxgK0

I bought the eggplant a long time ago so I only salvaged around half of it also missing

olive oil - substituted coconut oil
cherry tomatoes - substituted tomatoes that have also been around awhile
oregano - substituted basil and herbamare (free from social nature an herbed salt)
missing - breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and fresh basil

The video starts with scooping out the center of the eggplant I just cut what I could salvage into chunks.




 Then sauté the onions in olive oil I used coconut oil and used a bit less onion for my taste




Then add the eggplant


Then add garlic, and seasoning



Then add the marinara sauce lately I have been using costco brand or Rao's I went cheaper today because it was made in Italy and I do not recommend it. Stick with a good quality tomato sauce this one tastes like tomato paste.


Then add tomatoes, egg, and cheese. The magic bullet is the cheapest and fastest way to grate cheese although I wasn't using the correct blade for it. 




Realized I needed a bit more for the top so used a different cup and blade 



and its ready to go into the toaster oven for half an hour


Final Product after 30 mins not to bad considering there was no parmesan cheese in it
