How to Be Curated by PLANT POWER
WE don't mind what community you post in - although we prefer you post in the Eco-Train or Natural Medicine communities!
Ensure your recipes are plant based - although we don't preach any diets, this curation would like to focus on plants rather than dairy or meat additions to recipes.
Use clear, well focused photographs - and ORIGINAL content!
When I saw this recipe I immediately thought of my family's tadka dal recipe. As a chef, I particularly love seeing how another chef prepares a similar dish because it shows their culinary personality. This lentil curry is full of flavor, and I only need to read the spice list and watch the cooking technique to know this bowl of goodness would knock your socks off.
This is quite a spread by a proud chef, and the manly portion size shown in the above photo is just the right amount for me. Steaming is not as common of a cooking method in the Americas as it is in Asia, so I was curious to see what was steaming in this Venezuelan man-chef's kitchen. Well, it turns out there is a lot going on in his kitchen, much more than just steamed beans, so go have a read/eat/drink.
This is my favorite snack in my former home of Cambodia, and although it's absolutely super simple, a lot of technique is needed to make these Khmer-Chinese breadsticks soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. If you've ever had churros, this is basically the Cambodian version, but they don't hurt your teeth like churros do. This is because this snack is barely sweet, perhaps even more savory than sweet.
There aren't any recipes in this post per se, but there is plenty of culinary inspiration. This chef/fitness coach has been working hard on her garden, and she is now beginning to reap, or better yet, cook what she has sown. There are many more dishes in this post than the beautiful one above, so don't miss out, you're sure to get some inspiration on what to cook as well as what to grow.
Vegan pulled-pork made from unripe jackfruit is a new favorite food of hipsters, and this new popularity has caused many people around the world to now know the word "jackfruit." I'm not much a fan of western style BBQ flavors so this Indian-style jackfruit curry is very appealing to me, and I really like the spice blend. This is very simple to prepare, so don't be intimidated, just follow this chef's method and you'll have delicious jackfruit "meat" in a jiff.
I chose @shielashraf as the 5% beneficiary because her lentil curry was off the chain, or I guess technically speaking, on the chain.
We hope you get involved with posting lots of yummy #plantbased #vegan #naturalmedicine #ecotrain recipes! Both communities are now also supported by OCD, so good quality posts might also get a little bit of extra love. Stay healthy, stay safe, and stay happy!
