Homemade Döner Kebab

kebab 1-2

Traditionally a Turkish dish, Döner kebab has become popular the world over, mostly as a late night street food. Normally cooked on a vertical rotisserie, this recipe allows you to make an equally delicious version at home. With a few simple tweaks, this recipe becomes healthier and lighter, while keeping its savory, satisfying flavor. Grass-fed meat contains more heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and packs more beneficial protein and iron, and less overall fat, than its corn-fed counterparts. And using Greek yogurt adds additional protein and calcium, making this meal super filling and satisfying. Put out all the toppings and let everyone build their own kebab.

Vegan Tikka Masala

Though the origins of Tikka Masala have been much disputed, the popularity and deliciousness of this dish is indisputable. Normally made with chicken swathed in a creamy and spicy tomato sauce, Tikka Masala straddles the divide between British and Indian cultures. In this recipe, vegan protein replaces chicken, and light coconut milk lightens up the creamy sauce. Turmeric is a traditional Indian spice, and chock full of anti-inflammatory properties, purported to boost the immune system, suppress tumors, protect the brain from Alzheimer’s, and make your skin glow from the inside out. Turmeric is best absorbed by the body when consumed with a healthy fat like coconut oil, and black pepper. Consider the recipe below a delicious and healthy way to get your turmeric fix, and an easy way to skip the takeout menu.

If you’re hosting a post-party brunch, consider making up a double batch. Your weary guests will thank you!
