Plant Power Cooking Challenge | Week #15 | Come Join Us!!

@JustinParke here with a fresh and piping hot Plant Power Cooking Challenge for you all to enjoy, where I highlight the winners of last week's challenge and give you chefs some new ingredients to tinker with.

Every Thursday is a new challenge and new ingredients, of which you may use one or more to make in your recipe submission. Not only is this challenge published from this account, I also share the link within the Plant Power curation posted every Thursday via the main @NaturalMedicine account.


WEEK #15 👩‍🍳 It's HPUD Time 💸

     Today is the 1st of July, and many of us Hivers power up our liquid HIVE on the first of each month with an aim increasing HIVE's value while enjoying some gamification elements of this monthly challenge. So, if you powerful #plantbased chefs have some HIVE, power it up and more power to you.

     It's another week, and that means a new ingredient list which I hope will inspire you all to create some new dishes and/or revamp some old recipes to share with the Hive-o-sphere. First, let's let have a look at the winners of last week's challenge.


Plant Power Cooking Challenge
Week #14 Winner


Asparagus Charred Corn Salad With Grapefruit Vinaigrette

by: @carolynstahl

     This chef of the great north always brings her A-game to every recipe post, and this was no exception, a very appealing salad with some smoky flavor. That's not all, this salad contains sautéd asparagus and grapefruit balsamic dressing that takes this salad to the next level.

     Congratulations @carolynstahl! You are the winner of 25 LOTUS, 5 HIVE, and a 5% beneficiary of this post.

WEEK #14 2nd & 3rd Prizes
sponsored by @shanibeer

     Chefs @emybaby and @aichel supplied us with the snacks and desserts this week. My mind had me wanted to blend these two treats together, putting chef @emybaby's candied pineapple and papaya on top of chef @aichel's incredibly appealing pineapple dessert.

     Chefs kyleana, journeylife, and cbuendia57 also impressed us with their culinary delights. Their posts are worthy of your consideration should you find time to do a little more food-stalking.Give thanks to all of you #NaturalMedicine chefs for providing me week in and week out with the highest grade #plantbased recipes on Hive.

Oh gosh i was just in Far North Queensland plucking passionfruit from vines and plucking ginger from the earth!! None down here unless I hear to supermarket. I do ADORE cardamom though... I might have an idea...


Okie dokie, and by the way, just watched you sailing that little beauty. I wonder what snacks you can whip up onboard? I assume there is a tiny workspace onboard.

@justinparke there isn't a galley box yet, but we'll make one, and have a little fridge too. I imagine it'll be hard to whip up a feast when you're mid sail, but when you're in harbour I'm sure it's do-able - watch this space!
