Thrilled to kick off our introduction to Khaana Collective* contributors with Hetty McKinnon.
Hetty made a name for herself by delivering delicious salads on her bike to her Sydney community, leading her to write the best-selling cookbook Community: Salad Recipes from Arthur Street Kitchen (2014). She now lives in Brooklyn where she wrote two more spectacular cookbooks and founded multicultural magazine Peddler Journal. She's also a mother to 3 children. To say I am in awe of Hetty is an understatement.
The first time we hung out, I didn't want to say goodbye because I felt like I was catching up with an old friend. Hetty has an ease about her that instantly makes you feel welcome. I can't wait to share more of her story with you.
Without further ado, here is Hetty's recipe:
A simple vegetable main dish of cauliflower and potato, with the sweet aniseed freshness of fennel. The coconut cashew korma sauce is mild, so inject a kick with a few healthy splashes of Guntur Sannam Hot Sauce or Mango Chutney. A dollop of yogurt just before serving also goes a long way, adding a tangy liveliness.
