It has been hot, hot, hot in Toronto! I have a love/hate relationship with the heat.

Love: summer dresses, sunglasses, my little vegetable garden, drinks on patios, and excuses to go to the beach way too often.

Hate: applying sunscreen constantly, getting it in my eye, causing my eye to water profusely and therefor having mascara run down my face making me look like I have a black eye, but of course not discovering this until after I chatted up the cute boy in the coffee shop. We’ve all been there, right? Right?? Anybody??? Sigh.

Smoked Tofu & Mango Spring Rolls are the perfect combo of smoky tofu, sweet mango, creamy avocado and crisp veggies, all topped with a peanut dipping sauce. Perfect vegan, vegetarian, gluten free appetizer. #itdoesnttastelikechicken

One thing I do love about summer is how my cravings for cold crispy fruit and veggies reach an all time high! All I want is fresh, sweet, smoky flavours… and peanut sauce. Because when don’t I want peanut sauce?
