Plant Power Cooking Challenge | Week #14 | Come Join Us!!

A hungry hello to you #plantbased chefs of Hive, it's @JustinParke here with the latest Plant Power Cooking Challenge and last week's winners. I, @NaturalMedicine's Plant-Based Curator, get the chance to highlight some of Hive's most delicious creations each week through this challenge.

Every Thursday is a new challenge and new ingredients, of which you may use one or more to make in 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.



      I hope that each week's new featured ingredients not only keep you entertained, but also inspired to step outside the comfort zone. I can't remember if I've featured asparagus recently or not, but I crave it and haven't eaten it in years, so I hope you chefs will please my taste buds with some virtual asparagus to enjoy.

     Alright chefs, no time to waste, let's get the no-bake date ball rollin'!!


Plant Power Cooking Challenge
Week #13 Winner



by: @amy-goodrich

     Matcha green tea is pleasing enough as a beverage, but it's also a ppowdered creative and caffeinating ingredient that takes many desserts to the next level. These chia cups are next level indeed, and I bet they are very filling. You must check this post out, especially if you access to walnuts, because you'll surely want to re-create this in your kitchen.

Congratulations @amy-goodrich! You are the winner of 25 LOTUS, 5 HIVE, and a 5% beneficiary of this post.

WEEK #13 2nd & 3rd Prizes
sponsored by @shanibeer

     Chefs @carolynstahl and @chacald.dcymt shared some delicious recipes too, and both posts are worthy of a visit from you Hivers. The udon noodle stir-fry had me attempting to smell the sesame seeds through the screen, and the congrí reminded me of the perfect partnership that beans and rice are, the one she shared being the Cuban take on this classic dish.

     Not to be left out, chefs pravilsabu, journeylife, emybaby, and aswita all wowed me with some tasty dishes. If you have some extra time after checking out the above three incredible posts, do visit the posts from these 4 chefs because you might find some further culinary inspiration.

     Give thanks to all of you #NaturalMedicine chefs for providing me week in and week out with the highest grade #plantbased recipes on Hive.
