5-Ingredient Mondays: Corn, Tomato and Green Bean Salad, Lemonade and Satay Tofu

Happy Canada Day!!!


Two years ago my best friend and I decided to head to Ottawa for the Canada Day long weekend. It was unbelievably busy. We knew it would be, but we were not prepared for HOW busy it was! Naturally we escaped the crowds as much as possible and explored the less busy areas of the Capital.


Here we are admiring the Parliament buildings from afar.


I don’t think I’ll ever head to Ottawa for Canada Day again, but it was definitely an experience that I’m glad I had. I’ve never been around so many people who were so outwardly in love with Canada. I don’t believe that any country is perfect, but there are many, MANY reasons that I am proud and grateful to be Canadian.

To celebrate Canada Day this year I’m going to enjoy delicious recipes from last week’s 5-Ingredient Monday link-up. Hopefully I will use the energy these delicious foods give me to walk around Toronto and take in the sights and sounds of the cities celebrations 🙂

Here are my favourite submissions from last week. You can also check out all of the submissions from last week here.

There’s my submission, what will yours be this week?

Please review the following guidelines before linking up:

  1. Recipe should contain 5 ingredients or less, pantry staples excluded. So basically anything that is likely to be found in most peoples kitchen/pantry does not count as an ingredient, neither do optional ingredients. Examples of kitchen/pantry staples may include spices, baking soda, baking powder, milk/non-dairy milk, oils, etc.
  2. Recipe must be gluten-free. Bonus for recipes that are also dairy-free and double bonus for plant-based recipes.
  3. Lastly, please leave a link to your own recipe that goes to that week’s 5-Ingredient Monday post, not on this static page.

Your recipes don’t need to be from this week, but it does need to be your own recipe. I will sometimes share photos of the recipes with links back to your blog, so by sharing your recipe, you are giving me permission to use your photo and link back to your recipe.
