Kale Falafel/Burgers/”Neatballs”

KALE! FALAFEL? BURGERS? NEATBALLS!!!

Inspiration comes from many people and places always! Lately Facebook has been my haven of collecting and sharing thought provoking and inspirational information. A short time ago, I came across a link for an article called, “7 Reasons Kale is the new beef”. Just this week, deeply engrossed in conversation about putting kale into the diet, I was inspired by a couple of friends to create this Kale rich and versatile recipe… for anyone who may be struggling with creative Vegan dishes, or just making tasty options that even the most stubborn flesh eaters can enjoy this is for YOU!

COCONUT CHICK'N AND RICE

CHEF HEATHY’S COCONUT CHICK’N & “RICE”

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!

Cauliflower Mash with Mushroom Gravy

CAULIFLOWER MASH & MUSHROOM GRAVY

Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables, and it was abundant at the farmers’ market today. So, I picked up a big, beautiful head to whip up my mash for dinner. Cauliflower comes in white, green, and purple varieties, and works wonderfully processed into a mash. This is my version of mashed potatoes. Cauliflower has a kick to it, which I love.
