05 Jan Lemony Kale Salad with Asiago + Panko

My go-to kale salad obsession, this quick recipe is a winner every single time. Be sure to choose bunches of Black/Lacinato/Elephant/Tuscan/Dino (seriously I've never seen a single vegetable with so many different names) with smaller dark and very bumpy leaves (they will be way more tender and flavorful than the XL leaves) and chiffonade them as finely as your knife will let you (for a tutorial- check out my quick video here ). With a bright and bold lemon vinaigrette, tender paper thin black kale, shredded high-quality aged asiago, and buttery toasted panko breadcrumbs, this salad will make any kale hater say KALE YEAH.[yumprint-recipe id='61']...

13 Oct Tikka Masala Mushrooms with Smashed Yogurt Potatoes

Paneer Masala is one of my favorite Indian dishes, but I've been looking to make a meatier/healthier version since I eat it so damn often. And let's face it, really whatever the protein/veg/cheese is in the masala is truly just a vehicle for drinking up the insanely delicious sauce (and it's always good to have more veggies in your life).I created this vegetarian/cheese free recipe using the traditional method for tenderizing and marinating chicken in Indian cooking, only instead of chicken I swapped in shrooms. The result is a hearty meaty texture on the mushrooms with intense flavor all the way through, and a quick finish in the sauce bath brings it all to a very happy place. And though it may sound a bit strange, I love my Indian dishes served over chunky smashed potatoes instead of rice for a heartier meal, so I included a super simple recipe...

06 Oct Veggie Ceviche Stuffed Avocado (Vegan)

Hearts of Palm replace the standard fishy ceviche base in this tangy, spicy, and flavor packed recipe developed for Vegenaise. The key to getting this right is workin your knife skills and making every vegetable component the same size- I like mine super finely diced, but for a more rustic preparation you can pump up the size and go chunky. Serve in pretty glasses or in an emptied out avocado as shown and with plenty of your favorite tortilla chips on the side!Head on over to mayokarma.followyourheart.com for more vegan comfort food recipes!...
