I love a good sandwich. Delicious fillings + delicious bread?! Sign me up! Now usually sandwiches are a lunch or dinner item for me, and something that happens on the heels of pulling a freshly baked loaf of sourdough from the oven….
Crepes are one of the more satisfying foods. I find the whole experience of making them enjoyable. I love spreading the batter into a thin pancake over a hot pan and stuffing it with all the sweet or savory things. Then there’s the fact that you can melt chocolate, jam, [vegan] butter, or [vegan] cheese on right onto it, I mean-HELLO. And I think folding it up and having layers of pure crepe-and-filling tastiness makes it so much more fun to eat.
This Indian curry is so good it’s going to make you want to buy extra kale every week. You would never guess while eating it, but the spiced kofta hides an entire huge bunch of curly kale in it! When kale is mixed with some mashed potato and chickpea flour, then fried (or baked, your call) to golden perfection, the resulting kofta tastes like a fully guilt-ridden indulgence, until wait! you remember, you’re basically just eating protein packed kale balls.
And possibly the best part is that you get to eat them with a tangy spiced yogurt sauce (kadhi). Yogurt is thickened to a creamy gravy with chickpea flour, and flavored simply with turmeric, fenugreek, chilis, and garlic. A squeeze of fresh lemon juice provides the extra tang that your vegan yogurt may be lacking. When finished off with a little drizzle of 5-minute chili oil, you’ll forget you’re at home cause things got so fancy.
This dish is naturally gluten free. It’s full of protein and low in added fat (especially if you bake the kofta). And because it’s filled with superfoods kale and turmeric, this dish is extra healthy. Plus, it’s easy and quick to make, and it fills your home with the most tantalizing curry aromas….
