My Recipes
Red Bean & Matcha Hot Cross Buns
Happy Good Friday everyone! So, today, I was inspired by @thefeedfeed and @theflouredkitchen (and several others of you) to try my hand at making Hot Cross Buns. Prior to a couple days ago, I had no idea they were a food, as opposed to a nursery rhyme! Well, here’s not only a vegan version, but a Korean Vegan version! I added a bit of matcha to the crosses and stuffed these babies with espresso red bean paste (“paht”). I also want to try making some matzo ball soup, soon! This is one of the reasons I love IG—scrolling through my feed is daily foodspiration and education!
Korean Gochugaru Brine
I absolutely love the smell of gochugaru. It reminds me of "kimchi days" growing up. My grandmas, mom, and aunts would be covered in red up to their elbows and the whole house would smell of spice and fresh cabbage. This is a brine for my perilla leaves--made of soy sauce, sugar, chili peppers, garlic, spring onions, sesame oil, and of course, gochugaru. They are pickling as I write and I cannot wait to dig into them tomorrow!
Vegan Churros
Happy #nationaldonutday!!! These are my Koreanchurros--a Korean and vegan TWIST on the traditional churro. :) check out the link in my profile for the recipe video. Also, so excited to be demonstrating these on my next @thefeedfeed snapchat takeover on Fathers Day!

Guys, check out my instastory for a special recipe video, featuring my favorite salad. This post was inspired by @sagecanaday and his quest to eat more greens and Dr. Michael Greger at @nutrition_facts_org, whose book has changed my life and love for healthy foods. Music by my darling, @music.and.movement.
Blackberry Glazed Blackberry Donuts. Gluten free, dairy free, egg free, refined sugar free, and oil free. Based upon that descriptor, I wouldn't blame you if you said, "no thanks!" But it's just as soft and tender as the best donut you ever had, slightly blue from those lush blackberries, and packed with anti-inflammatories (chia seeds, flax seeds, berries). I used to think gluten free baking was sad baking, but it took 2 weeks to make a believer outta me. I don't think I'll ever need to use regular flour again for cakes and donuts and muffins. Now bread??? Sigh. Jury's out on that.... In the meantime, happy to snack on these.
