cooking for luv pickles

06 Jul Garlic Dill Fridge Pickles

Pickles are one of my favorite foods in the universe, and even though you can pickle any vegetable, fruit, or nut and I will go bonkers over it - nothing beats the classic garlic dill (especially in my famous fried pickles recipe). The crazy part? They are SO easy to make. Like 15 minutes from grocery bag to jar and you will never buy a store bought pickle again easy. All you need is to boil up a brine, trim your kirbys (the famous pickling cucumber), throw everything in a jar, and stick them in the fridge for a few days and you have transformed the humble cucumber into something with massive pickle power!A couple of tips:1. Slice a tiny (like an 1/8 of an inch tiny) bit of the blossom end off of your cucumber. If the blossom isn't attached anymore, you can find it on the opposite end...

cooking for luv lux mushroom pate

13 Apr Luxe Mushroom Pate

My vegan foie gras recipe is one of my most popular and I love love love making it to wow friends from carnivores to meatless crusaders. Using lentils and walnuts as the base with ume plum vinegar as the secret ingredient, it has an extremely rich and umami packed flavor profile that you just can't quit eating til the last finger lick from the jar. This past week I was looking to create a legume free option of that recipe so I turned to the other classic meatless pate ingredient: mushrooms. Paired with some similar ingredients to my original (the miso stayed but I swapped in sherry vinegar for the ume plum), a few new secret umami bomb weapons (porcini powder, tamari, mustard powder and capers), some new freshness (with fragrant farmers market thyme and parsley), and the pièce de résistance: ultra lux fatty butter, this new pate is some...

ceviche-alt-1024x768

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!...
