PEACH CRISP- Vegan/Parve

We were just in Kelowna B.C. & picked up a case of peaches are our favourite orchard in West Kelowna. Paynters. We have been getting our fruit there for many years! This year they did not have any of their own peaches but they had so many from other orchards in the Okanagan. Now the what to do with all of them? I gave several away, I made this Peach Crisp & some Peach Muffins. I am slicing the majority of them & freezing them to use in smoothies during the winter!

H ere are some pictures of the peaches. They are so juicy, have to have a napkin in hand to catch the peach juice!

I am going to freeze these peach slices them put them into containers to keep

Chopped Broccoli Salad


I had some broccoli crowns in the fridge, some carrots and purple cabbage so I decided to make it all into a salad. It turned out really nicely. The key, Murray says, is to cut the broccoli up into small pieces. The dressing is slightly sweet with the addition of maple syrup. I have changed the type of vinegar in the dressing from the original recipe which I got from a friend. Served this with some salmon patties last night, but of course it will pair as a side with anything.

Here is the recipe

Chopped Broccoli Salad

serves 4 as a side dish


 2 1/2 cups chopped broccoli, cut into small pieces

1  cup purple cabbage, sliced thinly than diced

1 carrot, finely grated

1/2 cup dried cranberries *** this is also good with currants

1/2 – 1 cup of toasted sunflower seeds *


 1 tbsp Dijon mustard

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

1/2 olive oil

1 small shallot, finely chopped

juice of 1 lemon

salt and pepper


 1 .Combine the shopped broccoli, purple cabbage, grated carrot  and dried cranberries together in a medium size bowl

2. In an ungreased skillet, gently toast the sunflower seeds. shake the skillet often to make sure they toast evenly. Cool slightly then add to the broccoli mixture.

3. Mix the dressing ingredients together. I like to mix my salad dressings in a jar and shake to combine.

This dressing recipe makes more than you need for this amount of salad so use any amount to suit your taste.
