Air-Fried Pumpkin Shakarparas

Air-Fried Pumpkin Shakarparas

Growing up in an Indian-American household, shakarparas are a staple cookie for the holidays.

Vegetarian Barbe-Fu

This was a new one for me, trying to create something delicious for a team member’s going away party at work. Most of my meals/dishes are very meat forward, but she’s vegan so we tried to make her a meal she’d remember. This tofu recipe blends the flavors, techniques, and style of a normal barbecue, but replaces the meat with extra firm tofu.
