1-Pot Green Curry with Chickpeas, Kale, and Sweet Potato

This comforting curry is inspired by our DIY green curry paste, which is a fusion of classic Thai green curry paste with flavors like lemongrass, garlic, and citrus, as well as whole spices like coriander and cumin seed.

I dreamt up this dish after making a dressing with this beloved green curry paste and pouring it over fresh kale, Instant Pot chickpeas, and perfect roasted potatoes. While delicious, I knew it would be next level if cooked and married with coconut milk.

Simple Roasted Beet Relish

This simple, citrusy relish is inspired by the Vegan Bowl at Teote — a Latin restaurant we love in Portland, Oregon. In fact, I already shared my take on the bowl itself here. But there was something missing: The mysteriously delicious and addictive beet relish.

I don’t know how exactly they make it at Teote, but my taste buds tell me I did a pretty good job at deconstructing it here for you all.

Fluffy Gluten-Free Naan (Yeast-Free, 20 minutes!)

Fluffy Gluten-Free Naan (Yeast-Free, 20 minutes!)

Since making our vegan take on traditional Indian naan bread a while back, I’ve significantly decreased my consumption of gluten, so naan was off the table for a while. Moment of silence as we grieve. 

The gluten-free alternatives I’d tried up to this point were admittedly lackluster. I missed the pillowy, stretchy naan bread infused with garlic alongside my beloved curries, so I got to work. And the results were incredible. 

Friends, behold, gluten-free vegan naan made in 1 bowl, in 20 minutes, with simple ingredients!

Nourishing Chocolate Banana Adaptogenic Shake

We turned our favorite adaptogenic hot chocolate into a shake! Because it’s summer and it’s hot outside, but adaptogens are great year-round.

Nourishing Chocolate Banana Adaptogenic Shake

We turned our favorite adaptogenic hot chocolate into a shake! Because it’s summer and it’s hot outside, but adaptogens are great year-round.

Just 1 blender, 10 minutes, and 10 ingredients stand between you and this delicious shake. Let us show you how it’s done!

What is an Adaptogen?

Good question, and something I wondered about myself up until a few years ago.

An adaptogen is a plant (usually an herb, root, or mushroom) that may help your body adapt to stress (whether acute, episodic, or chronic).

Creamy Mango Lassi Smoothie

When eating out, I’m often unable to enjoy the chai latte and mango lassi on menus because they contain dairy. So it was only a matter of time before I tried my hand at dairy-free versions of each. (Check out our favorite dairy-free chai!)

Creamy Mango Lassi Smoothie

When eating out, I’m often unable to enjoy the chai latte and mango lassi on menus because they contain dairy. So it was only a matter of time before I tried my hand at dairy-free versions of each. (Check out our favorite dairy-free chai!)

This 5-ingredient lassi smoothie combines frozen ripe mango, creamy coconut milk, tangy coconut yogurt, lime juice, and optional honey (or maple syrup) to sweeten. 

I also share which mangoes are best for lassis (in my experience), and how to pick, ripen, and slice mangoes!

Savory Moong Dal Rice Crepes (Dosa or Cheela)

In looking for a quick and easy way to make dosas (savory, fermented Indian crepes), we were blown away by the flavor and texture of these savory Indian-inspired crepes. And it turned out what we actually ended up with is called a cheela!

Cheelas are similar in flavor and presentation to dosas but don’t require fermenting. We experimented with fermenting but found it didn’t impact flavor or digestibility. However, we include tips for fermenting if you have extra time!

1-Pan Potato (Aloo) Sabzi

It’s no secret that we have a thing for Indian cuisine — the textures and techniques and flavor combinations are incredible!

This sabzi — the term in Indian cooking used to describe cooked vegetables — came to be during the creation of our (upcoming) dosa-inspired recipe. We needed a tasty filling and this was the perfect solution!

Most potato (aloo) sabzis require peeling and parboiling, but we keep things simple by dicing potatoes and cooking them right in the pan with the other ingredients.
