Healthy, whole food, plant based recipes by Emma Recipe #18: Butternut Squash, Red Lentil, and Eggplant Sambhar   From Ecuador to Singapore over New Years, Goa India for the next New Years, and now off to Portugal to participate in Kimberly (Kimbo)’s and Laurence’s thriving farm, I have had the great pleasure of connecting with this incredible couple.  I met Laurence at a yoga retreat in Montanita Ecuador where he and Kimbo were traveling around South America.  They welcomed me into their gorgeous apartment in Singapore where we rung in the New Year bearing lion costumes on their rooftop.  Even at this time they were potting and growing lush vegetables and preparing for their next chapter in Portugal.

Healthy, whole food, plant based recipes by Emma Recipe #16: Curried Cauliflower Rice   Kale has been the super star vegetable for several years now. Move over kale, because cauliflower is the new veg to steal the spotlight.  From cauliflower pizza crust, no rice vegan sushi, to cauliflower rice. Cauliflower is a versatile vegetable full of antioxidants and an anti cancer super power.

I prefer the fresh version, as it stays crisper. Of course it’s a treat to cut corners when we can, especially since my busy life living in San Francisco....
