One-Pot Chipotle Chili

As the weather shrinks colder, my desire for heart warming foods grows stronger. Soul comforting, robust stews and soups that make you wanna cuddle up on the couch beside someone you love. Okay, who am I kidding, I live in LA and the weather isn’t getting any colder. But that doesn’t mean I don’t crave…

Maple Tempeh Sausage Sliders

I remember those late mornings at a random chain restaurant, dining on a breakfast plate full of eggs, toast, grits, and sausage – I always preferred sausage to bacon. Get outta here Bacon McGriddle! The sausage that reigns supreme in my eyes has always been maple sausage. It’s sweet like Autumn, smoky like a campfire,…

Classic Hot Chocolate (stevia sweetened)

This is a simple recipe with only 6 ingredients and 3 photos, so I’ll try to keep it short on my end as well. This formula has been our go-to hot chocolate recipe for the past 6 months, because it takes no more than 10 minutes to put together, it’s sugar-free, creamy, silky, chocolate-y, and…

Salted Caramel Cornless Cake (lectin-limited, sugar-free, & vegan)

After our Cornless Bread recipe, I started to realize that maybe the world of baking isn’t impossible to dance around in, even with a strict sugar-free, vegan, and lectin-limited diet. It took a while, but through the month of November we discovered that the mixture of cassava & sorghum flour – in different ratios –…

Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole

One image of Thanksgiving that appears in my mind whilst contemplating a the dinner table is a casserole dish. Some large, plexiglass glass cook piece is filled to the brim with warm goodness, ready to be dished out to every member of the family, with leftovers still remaining. What goes inside the dish differs from…

Avo Nog (Vegan Eggnog)

Not to be confused with awkward nog, this drink is my take on my Uncle Jerry’s famous eggnog… well, famous to me at least. To make his nog, egg yolks were soaked in whiskey overnight, then beat with sugar, heavy cream, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The egg whites on the other hand were whipped to medium peaks…

Cauliflower Mash & Toasted Garlic Gravy

Nothing tickles the Thanksgiving Fancy quite like mashed potatoes and gravy… especially if you’re Kim.  After all, mashed potatoes are comforting, soul-satisfying, simple, and loaded with carbs – i.e. the Thanksgiving way. The only problems that I have are that potatoes are nightshades and most gravies are made out of meat broth. *sad face emoji* “What’s…

Sweet & Savory Cornless Bread

I’m aware that it seems silly to make a food item based around something that I choose not to eat – i.e. cornbread – but, if I crave something, I make it work. Simple as ‘dat. A couple of weeks ago, Kim and I were testing out sugar cookies made from sorghum flour, through which…

Cabernet Cranberry Jam (sweetened with xylitol)

Unlike many children, I loved cranberry jelly growing up. You know, the jiggly one from the can? Clearly, there’s always been a few screws loose in my head. Nevertheless, I grew up to realize that not many people like cranberry jelly, which is a real shame, because cranberries are an overlooked fruit packed with antioxidants,…

Fluffy Lectin-Free Biscuits with Mushroom Thyme Gravy

I’m SO happy that November is here – it’s probably the best month for an American food blogger, given the entire country’s hype around food. November also happens to be our first magazine feature (did I spill the beans too soon?). That’s right, No Eggs or Ham will have a couple of recipes inside the…

Loaded Chili Cheese Fries

Here at No Eggs or Ham, we love dishes with light flavors that subtly compliment one another to form an elegant, well put together dish (our spicy tamarind pasta is a good example). But, we also love super ultra mega indulgent dishes, stacked to the brim with flavor in every single bite. This is one…

Crispy Baked Rosemary Fries

French fries have become one of most Americans’ favorite culinary inventions. The “French” part of the word derives from the way potatoes are cut, as a “French cut” refers to slicing something into thin strips. Aside from the fact that many of us avoid potatoes and fast food restaurants like the plague (myself included), fries…

Spicy Tamarind Pasta (lectin and gluten-free)

Every now and then, we owe ourselves an easy meal. Something that doesn’t exude excess creative energy, require nit-picky prep, or dirty much in the way of dishes. Assumably – unless you’re a chef or food blogger – that’s what most of your meals probably look like, but for me, I assume that you guys…

Polynesian Sauce & Tempeh Nuggets

Do you have any fond memories of strolling through a Chick-fil-A drive thru? Or jonesing for one bite of a nugget on a Sunday afternoon, when every single Chick-fil-A in existence is closed? I know I do. If so, you’re probably familiar with their scrumptious, thick, sweet, and tangy Polynesian sauce & crispy, salty, seasoned…

Lectin-Free Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad is a simplistic dish, made from nothing but a creamy dressing – containing garlic, mayonnaise, anchovies, and Worcestershire sauce – tossed with crisp, romaine lettuce, served piping cold. Its simplicity is also what predisposes it as one of the most abused dishes in America. The tricky thing is, if any one of the…

Sweet Potato Spice Latté

In the last post I said that along with the changing of seasons comes my incessant desire to eat sweet potatoes 24/7 – did you think I was kidding? With pumpkin spice lattés, popcorn, cookies, hand soap (yes, hand soap), and other souvenirs, it’s hard not to want in on the craze, no matter how…

Fluffy Sesame Muffins (sugar-free, grain-free, paleo, & vegan)

Hello October! It’s nice to feel your gentle, chilly breeze again. Along with the change of seasons comes my incessant desire to eat anything & everything sweet potato related: sweet potato pie, sweet potato soup, roasted sweet potato, mashed sweet potato – Autumn’s got me wantin’ it all. One of sweet potato’s most unique application…

Gushtaba! (Kashmiri Meatball Curry)

Admittedly, after making seven curry recipes, they all start to blend together; meat and/or vegetables cooked in a sauce made from a mixture of spices, served with rice. Ugh, how original. Sure, they each have their unique quirk – allspice in this one & thinner sauce in that one – but the general idea remains…

Palak Paneer (Indian Spinach Curry)

Hello guys! This is our second to last curry recipe of the month; meaning this is our 7th curry recipe; meaning we’ve only got one more to go! Man, September flew by. Being that we’ve gone through 6 other recipes so far, you might be wondering “when are they gonna make an Indian curry?” Well –…

Jamaican Jackfruit Curry with Rice & Peas

Jamaican curry is the first type of curry I’ve ever tried, which isn’t much of a surprise being that I’m from Tampa – a place that’s tightly interconnected to the Caribbean Islands. I ordered it from Jerk Hut, off of Twiggs St., where they served their curry the traditional, family way: a styrofoam tray with…

Kare Raisu (Japanese Curry Rice)

Kare-Raisu, known as Curry Rice in English, is a Japanese curry that’s sweeter, less spicy, and adapts a longer cooking method than most other curries. For ease of comprehension, lets break down the basics of Japanese Curry into sections. 1: Caramelizing Onions The single most important step in making Japanese curry that I can pinpoint…

Cauliflower Tikka Masala

Tikka Masala is a type of curry – seasoned with garam masala, served in a creamy, tomato coconut sauce, and comprised of one main protein (typically chicken) – that originated in the UK by chefs of Indian background. This dish highlights many cooking techniques foreign to most American cooks, such as myself, which makes it…

Panang Curry

Before anything else… a history lesson is in order. The first recorded Panang Curry recipe was published in 1890 by Thai chef Somchin Rachanupraphan. Originally, the word panang meant “to sit cross-legged” in the Khmer language, which was also adapted into their cooking methods; they would position a whole chicken in an upright cross-legged on…

Thai Red Curry

Thai Red Curry is green curry’s milder, less pungent sister. Albeit, this girl packs some heat, because Thai red chilis are spicer than the green variety found in green curry! Red curry paste gets its color – and heat – from dried thai red chilis. However, because there’s no easy way to remove them of…

Thai Green Curry

Thai Green Curry is my personal favorite curry and my go-to every time I visit a Thai food cart in Portland. Six dollars for a variety of crunchy veggies, swimming in spicy, fragrant curry sauce alongside Thai Jasmine rice? Yes please! Thai curries differ from those of most other countries because they’re made from a wet…

Brown Garlic Sauce Tempeh & Mushrooms (Chinese Tex-Mex)

The final dish – dish #5 – of our Chinese Tex Mex series is an American Chinese take-out staple: brown garlic sauce. The sauce is thick, deep in savory flavors, dark brown in color, and pungent with fresh garlic & black pepper. We whip our sauce up with seared, grain-free tempeh and shiitake mushrooms to…

Crunchy Fennel Citrus Slaw (Chinese Tex-Mex)

“Crunchy. Fresh. Rejuvenating. This slaw is… divine.” *I said to myself in Gordon Ramsay’s voice* Every taco has to have its equivalent of romaine lettuce for its balancing effect in the meal, lightening up the savory fillings with a burst of crisp rejuvenation. To continue the Chinese Tex Mex theme (this is dish 4 out of…

Orange-Cinnamon Jasmine Rice (Chinese Tex-Mex)

To me, rice is addicting; whenever I make it, I’m tempted to grab a bite every time I stroll by the pot. However, I’ve been learning to hone my self-control around rice, because making perfect rice takes patience. Recently, I discovered that you can boost the resistant starch levels of rice tenfold by cooking it…

Refried Black Soy Beans (Chinese Tex-Mex)

As part of a family style Tex-Mex meal, the second most important element – next to tortillas – is beans. Particularly refried beans, which aren’t actually re-fried at all, they’re just blended until smooth… yeah, I’ve never understood where the terminology comes from either. Traditionally, refried beans are made from black or pinto beans that’ve…
