We get so STUCK in the way we eat and cook, and nothing represents an open mind & heart better than someone willing to taste something new, or to cook differently. It's my golden test on a new romance - what they eat and how they cook. A prospective lover who DOESN'T enjoy to cook? LOL. 🤣
Food is culture, community and family - and it's such a lovely expression of generosity to cook for others.
Our Hive community is JUMPING with eager, creative cooks - sharing their ideas and recipes freely. Today @artemisshares is gifting you 3 creative & interesting recipes you might enjoy to try at home. And an interesting question to ponder.
Please, be generous. Upvote, reblog, comment and tip. Engagement online about food is a great beginning, if a shared meal isn't possible.
Eggplants are funny things - unless you're heavily into moussaka or awesome Thai vegan curries, what else to do with them? We LOVE this idea of a hummus-style dip-spread made from roasted eggplants. Creative, healthful, yummy, affordable and EASY. A butter alternative you can make at home. We especially love that this post was a response to a comment on another post. 😍 Hive engagement from a new Hive user at its finest - please lavish some special love on her for that!!
We can't even IMAGINE what this would taste like. Sidestepping the liquid smoke (a strange western product LOL) and substituting black bean tempeh for the non-GMO-non-soy people, this is on our MUST TRY weekend list. What we especially love about this recipe is it's SOOOO adaptable - you could make this with just about anything! If you DO try this at home, please tag your post url to the comments below so we can give you some encouragement and support too. Read more...
Shitake Mushtoom And Buckwheat Noodle Soup
This post just makes me want to make soup!! If you're in Asia, NOW is the time for fresh young shitake! If buckwheat noodles are hard to find, Asian rice or mung noodles (woon sen or sen mii in Asian grocer shops) are super easy and require only sitting in the hot soup at the end. Every day should be sop day! Read more...
And... drumroll... the promised ethical question:
Follow the money, they say. And if we DO that - follow the money on how our products are made, who profits, who is exploited, which Beings suffer, how the environment is affected - then often we start making money choices VERY differently. Is crypto the only real vegan currency? Should you take or accept money made and created on the sufferings of other people and animals? GREAT QUESTIONS here - open at you peril! You may never fit back in the box again. Read more...
@artemisshares is a simple, private curation project run by @artemislives. The goal? To increase exposure and rewards for great content that doesn't always get the recognition it deserves. Today it might be 3 healthful posts, tomorrow it might be 3 posts about freedom, red cars, crypto or dogs. As the mood takes me.
Each post featured here is a post beneficiary and the remainder used to build a juicier upvote. Because I believe in encouragement and at the end of a curating session, there are ALWAYS a few posts I'd like to do more for.
