  • Curried Roasted Winter Squash Soup

    Curried Roasted Winter Squash Soup

    This is my go-to winter squash soup that always delivers and fast! My favorite no-fuss way to roast winter squash is to just cut it in half, scoop out the seeds and put it face down on a lightly greased sheet pan. The soup is flavored with any one of my simmer sauces and a can of coconut milk and then topped with Tomato Achaar for some heat. For a variation, I sometimes add 1/2 cup of cooked red lentils to this recipe. Curried Roasted Winter Squash Soup  INGREDIENTS  1 small winter squash i.e butternut squash (2 pounds) 2 teaspoons oil 1...

    Samah's Jackfruit Coconut Cashew Korma with Green Peas, Sweet Potatoes, and Green Chiles {RECIPE}

    Meet Khaana Collective* contributor Samah Dada⠀What I love about Samah Dada, host of the TODAY Show original series #COOKING with Samah Dada and creator of the health and wellness blog @dadaeats besides the fact that she hacked a vegan and gluten-free version of the famous Levain chocolate chip cookie is that she is downright hilarious. It is not only her creative and delicious recipes but her sharp wit and deadpan humor that glue me to her Instagram feed (and her videos with her mom are priceless.) I hope to see Samah on TV one day, she is a pleasure to watch and learn...

    Yewande's Spicy Vegetable Puff Pies With Mango Chutney Dip {RECIPE}

    Meet Khaana Collective* contributor Yewande Komolafe. I discovered Yewande’s recipes and writing in the Times and immediately fell in love. I needed to know more about this talented human and learned that prior she had developed hundreds of recipes for the likes of Saveur, Bon Appetit, the James Beard Foundation and worked in the kitchens of Momofuku Milk Bar.  And what intrigued me most of all was her dinner series My Immigrant Food Is... inspired by her own immigrant story from Lagos, Nigeria.

  • Wen-Jay's Coconut Cashew Zucchini Bread {RECIPE}

    Wen-Jay's Coconut Cashew Zucchini Bread {RECIPE}

    Meet Khaana Collective contributor Wen-Jay Ying! The first word that comes to mind when I think about Wen-Jay, founder of Local Roots, is pioneer. Since 2011, she has revolutionized the way New Yorkers shop for local produce, meats and more by connecting them with sustainable family farmers and small-batch producers within 2 hours of the city.  In essence, she has created a customizable farmer’s market that can be delivered to you or picked up from a local bar or cafe. To give you a sense of the scale of Wen-Jay’s impact on the local food system–she distributes over 60,000 lbs of local...
