Since Mother’s Day is in May, I decided to create this recipe in honor of her. She loves Indian curry food, although is not a fan of spice, so this is a mild dish. You can add as much or as little spice as you choose. Despite the fact that the recipe looks long, it’s really simple. A zap in the food processor, a quick mix in the blender, and a bit of chopping here and there. Allow at least 2 hours for the eggplant to sit in the dehydrator, but for best results, about 4-6 hours. Enjoy!

Happy Earth Day!!! For my raw dessert submission I made a Chocolate-Mint cheesecake, the chocolate resembling “dirt” and the Mint resembling “grass”. The food coloring I used to dye the mint topping green with is actually liquid mint-flavored chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is our #1 source of oxygen. Without oxygen, humans could not exist. So what better way to say “Happy Birthday” to Mother Earth than with a chlorophyll-rich cake?

This is Chef Adam Graham with a nostalgic smoothie inspired by fond memories from my youth. March is the time of year that the Shamrock Shake makes its appearance on billboards around the country. No longer do I cue up at the Un-Happy Meal trough to stuff my belly with industrial waste (watch the video). That’s not to say that I don’t miss drinking a Shamrock Shake… I do.
