  • Instant Pot Black Bean Butter Masala Chili

    Instant Pot Black Bean Butter Masala Chili

    This recipe is so easy, I'm almost embarrassed to post it. My kids and I love it so it's really a win-win and can be customized with different beans like pinto, kidney or a combination of beans and any topping you desire.  I prefer cooking dried beans in an Instant Pot because it yields a creamier bean in my opinion and I usually cook it during work hours so it's ready to go by dinner time. If you are strapped for time though, you can take 2 15 oz cans of black beans and heat them up with our Cashew Butter...

  • Saag Paneer

    Saag Paneer

    This recipe for saag paneer, one of my fav North Indian dishes comes together in minutes using my Coconut Cashew Korma simmer sauce. The recipe is so delicious as is but in case you want to make it a little more special, I have an optional step of adding a tadka, or tempering of spices at the end.  If you are vegan, sub in tofu for the paneer and for another variation, add in cubed feta which you don't need to fry beforehand. Saag Paneer serves 4 Ingredients 1 pound baby spinach (this recipe is forgiving so if you buy...

    The PLT - Paneer, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich

    Move over BLT, there's a new sandwich in town and it's called the PLT (AKA Paneer Lettuce Tomato!) Tell me this sandwich doesn't sound drool-worthy - a hunk of fried paneer, crisp lettuce, juicy tomato slices and a spread of Roasted Garlic Achaar Mayo and Curry Mustard. The PLT - Paneer, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich Serves 1 Ingredients 1/2 inch thick slices of paneer (enough for a single layer on your bread slice, ideally one big square per sandwich)1 teaspoon oil1 tablespoon Vegenaise or mayo2-3 teaspoons Brooklyn Delhi Roasted Garlic Achaar1 tablespoon Brooklyn Delhi Curry Mustard2 slices of bread, toasted*2 lettuce...

  • Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Saag

    Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Saag

    This potato recipe is the ultimate mash-up (hehe get it;). I grew up eating delicious saag aloo, a greens and potato curry which is why I was so intrigued when I discovered the Irish dish colcannan which is basically mashed potatoes with sauteed greens (most often cabbage or kale) and scallions mixed in. I thought I'd go a step further by also adding in some Roasted Garlic Achaar. The result is astounding! Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Saag Serves 6 Ingredients 2 lbs Russet or Yukon Gold Potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunksSalt5 tablespoon butter, plus more butter for serving chopped scallions, leeks or...

  • Butter Masala Mac and Cheese

    Butter Masala Mac and Cheese

    This recipe idea came from a customer who was inspired by Chef Preeti Mistry's genius Tikka Masala Mac and Cheese. Our customer hacked the recipe with our Tikka Masala simmer sauce but I thought I'd try Preeti's method out with our new Cashew Butter Masala simmer sauce and was blown away. The recipe below is decadent and perfect for a special occasion.  I have also made a lighter version by just warming my Cashew Butter Masala simmer sauce and adding in the cheeses and it was also delicious. The lighter version is easily veganized with melty vegan cheeses like Violife or Daiya. The lighter...

  • Roasted Delicata Squash & Paneer Salad

    Roasted Delicata Squash & Paneer Salad

    I had never thought to roast paneer until I saw a recipe from my friend Nik Sharma in his book Season for his Roasted Cauliflower, Paneer and Lentil Salad which is divine. I applied Nik's method for roasting paneer in a salad with delicata squash and my Curry Mustard Vinaigrette and the result was stunning. If delicata squash is not available at the time, you can also apply this recipe to cubed butternut squash or other winter squash you have on hand. Roasted Delicata Squash & Paneer Salad  Serves 6 Ingredients 2 lbs delicata squash (2 medium) 1 12-ounce block paneer, cut into 1/2-inch cubes...
