VEGANUARY (11).png

Greetings again my fellow Hivers, it's me @JustinParke with the latest Plant Power Weekly Cooking Challenge, where I feature some of tastiest #plantbased recipes of the week.

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 #17 😅 Let's Motivate

     Only three entries were submitted to the most recent challenge, so all chefs are winners. I hope this week there is a little more participation, and I've provided a new and different choice of ingredients to your culinary imagination ticking.

     It's another week and another set of ingredients and/or cooking styles for you chefs to experiment with. I look forward to your tasty entries, but for now let's take a look at the best of the best of last week.

Salad With Apples, Lentils and Cranberry Vinaigrette

by: @carolynstahl

     There is nothing quite like some really fresh and crisp vegetables paired with a homemade vinaigrette. Strange this feels exotic to me now, but the food supply chain is broken here in Suriname, and pretty fresh vegetables are a thing of the past. My one qualm about vegan salads is they are usually unfilling from a lack of protein, but this added some lentils to nutritionally balance this plate.

     Congratulations @carolynstahl! You are the winner of 25 LOTUS, 4 HIVE, and a 5% beneficiary of this post.

WEEK #15 2nd & 3rd Prizes

Apple Pie
by: @kyleana (2nd)

     Chef @kyleana provided us with a vegan Venezuelan take on apple pie. I could almost smell my tiny apartment filling with a cinnamon scent as I read this post, and it reminded me it's probably been years since I've had a slice of any kind of pie.

     @pravilsabu share some crispy and beautiful onion bhajis with us, one of my favorite snacks of all time.. Give thanks to all of you #NaturalMedicine chefs for providing me week in and week out with the highest grade #plantbased recipes on Hive.
