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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Seaweed-Infused Cassava Tortillas (Chinese Tex-Mex)

Welcome to the start of the Chinese Tex Mex fusion dinner – we’re glad you’re able to make it! What good is any tex-mex meal if there are no fresh tortillas? Tortillas are the base, the rock, the foundation from which the rest of a Tex-Mex meal is constructed around; even when all else fails,…

Cassava Pizza Crust with Roasted Garlic Sauce

Do you like pizza? That’s a rhetorical question. I know you do. I’m not saying pizza is everyones’ favorite food, but it certainly holds a unique place in the hearts of billions, with the mere mentioning of the word ushering up feelings of warmth, friendship, and a few drunken mistakes. Such is life. Let’s talk ‘zah.…

Garlic Broccoli Stuffed Portobellos (45 minutes!)

It’s funny how our tastebuds evolve over time, and – in my case – how my palate resembles that of my mom’s more every day. Growing up, my mom loved mushrooms. Meanwhile, I was all like “You eat fungi? That’s gross!” Of course, I didn’t think twice about eating the flesh of a cow. Ugghh…

Crispy Spring Roll Chips

I can’t think of one food as universally loved as crispy, handheld, chips. Seemingly every culture has their own variation of a chip: crisps in the UK, pane carasau (cracker thin flatbread) in Italy, tortilla chips in Mexico/Central America, poori (fried Indian flatbread), potato chips in the US, roasted nori in Japan, prawn crackers (chips made…

Toasted Sesame Noodle Stir-Fry

I can’t lie, going predominately grain free – or embracing any new dietary disciplines for that matter – can be intimidating. It always seems to threaten you with the idea that you’ll never be able to eat your favorite foods again. However, I can say that after being vegan for two and a half years,…

Baked Plantain Patties

I’m just now becoming introduced to the world of plantains, and it all happened one day when I decided to grab a bag of plantain chips by Terra, which are cooked in coconut oil and tossed in sea salt. These chips are crunchy with the perfect amount of salt, making them damn near addictive! After munching…

Tempeh Sliders

Look at these bad boys; they’re healthy, protein-packed, simple, and only 20 minutes to make from start-to-finish. Les go! It all starts with fresh romaine leaves, chopped in half – if they’re as big as these ones – with the crunchy ends removed, as seen below. I was skeptical of “lettuce wraps” for the longest time,…

Holy Molé Tacos with Cilantro Avocado Dressing

Holy Molé! Three cheers to healthy, flavor packed dinners that feeds up to 4 people. Family meal or leftovers for 2, anyone? Let’s hop into the creation of this recipe. When carrots are shredded and cooked, they transform into an entirely different entity; our friend couldn’t even recognize the filling as carrots, which is a…

Garlic Cauliflower Rice with Italian Stir-Fry

Raise your hand if you love simple dinners. *slowly raises hand*To be honest, when I’m not working on a recipe, I usually enjoy big ole’ salads for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner. But there’s no reason a dish that’s bursting with flavor and aroma should be complicated. This dish, for example, takes only 45 minutes to…

Creamy Veggie Dip (Thirty Minutes!)

Creamy artichoke dip, anyone? Yeah, maybe, but artichokes are expensive. And fussy. And I never have them in my kitchen, which is reason enough for me not to use them.   However, I am all about a dip that’s silky, full of luscious greens, savory, and transforms humble vegetables into a hearty sauce. Taking an…
