Top 7 Recipes of 2019

Seven recipes made our Top 19 Posts of 2019 list, covering a full range of meals with healthy, plant-based options the whole family will love.

  1. Mexi-Lasagna


    While this weeknight-wonderful recipe was only shared in September, our Mexi-Lasagna is the recipe our readers spent the most time with all year! (We can see why—it was one of the most popular recipes we’ve taste-tested at the office this year, too). A true comfort food casserole, this recipe’s Tex-Mex flavours is worth adding to your dinner recipe rotation.

  2. Hearty Sweet Potato Mason Jar Salad


    Lunch-ready with layers of crunchy, creamy, sweet, and savoury, this mason jar salad earned its way into the top recipes of the year on its own merit.

  3. Homemade Plant-based Fajita Burger


    The second of three Mexican and Tex-Mex-inspired recipes to make our top 7, this spicy, hearty, veggie-topped burger is packed with plant-based protein that satisfies no matter what time of the year you make it.

  4. Veggie Taco Cups


    These half-tortilla handfuls are perfect for small hands, party snacks, or served in multiples for hungry diners. Plenty of veggies and fun flavour make our Veggie Taco Cups the third Mexican and Tex-Mex-inspired recipe to win a spot on our best of 2019 list.

  5. Cauli-Burger


    Nutritionally-gifted and fantastically flexible cauliflower pairs with protein-rich quinoa to make this the second of two burgers to grace our list of the top recipes of 2019. Pan-searing our plant-based Cauli-burger means you don’t have to wait for barbeque season to taste summer again.

  6. Breakfast Grilled Cheese


    While breakfast for dinner is a perennial favourite, lunch for breakfast is a rule-bender that’s proven popular this year, too. Whether you grill it in a traditional skillet, or bust out your waffle iron for bonus points, this warm, savoury sandwich offers a perfect start to your day.

  7. Easy Apple Rhubarb Betty Dessert


    No best-of recipes list would be complete without dessert, and our Easy Apple Rhubarb Betty made the grade with our fans as Silver Hills Bakery’s most popular dessert recipe of 2019. Simple enough to satisfy a small-scale sweet craving, but delicious enough to serve to guests, this recipe is a year-round favourite.
