A Touchdown for the Tastebuds An exotic, bite-size alternative to the traditional buffalo chicken. Just like the big game, this Indian-inspired appetizer takes you on an exciting ride. First, there’s a rich sauce with smoky, spicy, and savory flavors that coat the chicken. Then, there’s a cool creamy cucumber sauce atop a lightly toasted naan flatbread!
This recipe is inspired by the vegetarian koftas (Indian meatballs) my mom used to make when I was growing up. I have tried to elevate it into meatless scotch eggs with a layer of mince soya made of split chickpeas and paneer. The rhubarb sauce adds a punch to the dish. All these indian flavors are sure to tickle your taste buds!
This vegan truffle is a healthy alternative to the decadent chocolate truffle. The recipe can be modified and used as a torte, cake, entremet base, or shaped into a bar for a healthy snack; the possibilities are endless.
Note: the healthy dried fruit base can be prepared in advance and frozen for up to 3-4 months.
Sesame Chicken is one of my all time favorite Chinese take-out dishes. Despite my affinity for it, the summer is slowly approaching and I’m doing everything I can to cut unnecessary calories and fat, without compromising flavor. For example, although we’re breading our Cauliflower, we’ll avoid a ton of excess fat and calories by baking our florets instead of frying them. Even though this is a healthier choice than traditional Chinese take-out, no flavor or comfort factor is compromised.
