Spicy Green Mango and Coconut Meat Salad

This super delicious vitamin C-loaded salad is the perfect side dish for any meal. It’s going to become your next favorite, I’m telling you!

The mix of the mango, coconut, and hot peppers can’t be described with words, you just have to make it, eat it, and experience the flavor explosions in your mouth!

Creamy Raw Vegan Cheesecake

I have a huge sweet tooth and am always experimenting in the kitchen to remix my favourite desserts. I made this raw vegan cheesecake for the first time for Earth Day and honestly, I was surprised at how good it is!

The crust is made with walnuts and dates and the filling gets its richness from coconut cream. The best part about this recipe is that the flavour of the filling is completely customizable! Next time I’ll add some coconut extract or some ribbons of mango curd to really kick it up a notch.

Try it this weekend!

Vegan Macaroni Pie and BBQ Portobello Mushrooms


In Guyana, macaroni pie is a staple dish at Sunday dinners and an easy way to add colour, texture, and flavour to the dinner table. Its aroma is one that instantly makes you hungry when entering the kitchen and its creamy, cheesy texture infused with spices tingle the taste buds and opens the appetite.

I decided to pair this macaroni pie with barbecued portobello mushrooms because BBQ goes well with macaroni as the contrast in flavours balances out the meal. It’s a match made in heaven! Welcome to Chef Monty’s Sunday dinner, vegan style.
