Plant-Based Cooking Challenge 👨🏿‍🍳 Week #23 👩‍🍳 Come Join Us!!

in #hive-1200782 months ago


Greetings again my fellow Hivers, it's me @JustinParke with the latest Plant-Based Weekly Cooking Challenge, where I feature last week's winners and provide a new set of ingredients for this week's challenge.


Plant-Power Cooking Challenge

🥦🌽🍉 WEEK #23 🍈🍅🥜

     For this weeks' challenge, I feel I provided a good challenge. It's harvest time in a lot of the northern hemisphere, and sweet corn is now in season in my former home in southern Indiana. But you'll find corn in the sweet side this week, and believe it or not, corn is well-suited for desserts, especially sweet corn.

     It's Thursday again, and that means a new challenge and new ingredients, each of which you may use one or more within 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.


Plant Power Cooking Challenge
Week #22 Winner(s)

HIVE rewards sponsored by @shanibeer

Black Bean-Seitan Pepper Steak With Dandelion Greens

by: @carolynstahl

     The above spread by one of our super-duper chefs was easily this week's winner. The greens, the sauce, the mashed potatoes, the tomatoes, and last but not least, the gluten and bean steak, a meal fit for vegan Kings and Queens. Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of western foods, but this whole plate is bursting with flavor, and I'm sure 4 of these plates would disappear in seconds if left in my family's house.

     Congratulations @carolynstahl! You are the winner of 3 HIVE and a 5% beneficiary of this post.

2nd & 3rd Prize Winners

     Chef @aswita's pudding is as beautiful as it is silky smooth. You can almost taste this recipe as she walks you through steps in her post. By the time you finish reading, you'll be looking around the room waiting for some of this heavenly pudding to appear. Luckily this can be prepared easily at home with simple ingredients, although pandan leaves (not 100% necessary) may be difficult to find in some countries.

     Next up is an awesome sandwich from a stellar chef, and although an anaconda might struggle to open its mouth large enough to take a bite, I think I could figure it out in a few seconds. The sandwich is black bean-based, and with the accompanying 3Speak tutorial video, any one should be able to reproduce this in their home kitchen.

     There was also a tempting potato dish from chef @journeylife, so be sure to check it out if you have time.

Very creative, I had only heard of these and never seen cachapas before your post.

Posted on

I'm glad you liked it and that it was useful to show you the Cachapas. A hug!

We just harvested our little patch of corn and wanted to prepare a dish along with Zucchini. Challenge accepted :o).

Corn is so versatile, but I really enjoy it in dessert. There is nothing like homegrown vegetables too, just makes it all the more delicious.

Posted on

You are absolutely right on that. I am so thankful for my small garden and every bit of homegrown food, I can wrest from the earth.

I'm not a big fan of bitter melon, but this recipe looks like I something I would enjoy. It takes a powerful flavor combo to combat the bitterness.

Wow thank you so much. I am honored. Congratulations to @aswita and @journeylife for their delicious recipes.

You always get creative with your ingredient choices each week. I like the variety which caters to different areas of the world.

I do try and keep in mind the hemispheres, seasons, and availability of things so that everyone has a chance to submit a recipe entry. You always impress us with whatever you create chef.
