The Unknown Chef is newest addition to the Birdz of a Feather family; it’s our recipe category. Food is one of life’s greatest pleasures. The recipe for a happy life is the right blend of family and friends to share it with, don’t you think?
‘The Unknown Chef‘ is inspired by Hubs. But does anybody really trust a skinny chef? Find out why you should! Although his ambitions to become a well-known chef didn’t go to plan, the blog at least provides an outlet to help prove the naysayers wrong!
You’ll find quick and easy recipes that are real timesavers, like our pressure cooker pulled pork. All the recipes are accessible to everyone. Even those with gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Hubs himself has celiac so every recipe on the site caters to a gluten-free diet. You’ll find gluten free substitutes in every recipe that will work every time.
My zucchini tofu lasagna turned out unexpectedly amazing, which is why it’s a zucchini lasagna with a twist. Noodle-less lasagna is a great concept in theory but when put into practice with zucchini as a substitute, you may find your favourite Italian cuisine drowning in water.
I was inspired by my sister for this vegetarian lasagna. Her version of zucchini lasagna, while really good flavour-wise, is always super watery. This recipe not only fixes that unwanted flaw, but we actually enjoy the taste and texture just as much as lasagna made with real noodles. What a bonus when you’re trying to avoid carbs!
Tofu Chili is a go-to on meatless Monday because it gives us all the flavour of a regular chili con carne minus the meat. Around here, we call it Chili Con Tofu. Tofu is brilliant at taking on whatever flavour you add!
This is also a great recipe to empty the pantry. Got a can of mini corn? Throw it in! As usual, we’re going full-on organic.
Fruity breakfast parfait is an easy make-ahead breakfast. It’s something I just started doing because I’m making an effort to loose weight. However, even when I DO lose the weight, I’ll continue to make these. That’s because they’re so darn easy and good! What’s not to love about a make ahead reakfast that’s ready to pull out of the fridge in the morning?
Gluten free blueberry muffins that actually taste good seemed a dream until this recipe. We ate our way through many a puck, let me tell you. But things have changed since Hubs was diagnosed with Celiac disease and luckily time and patience always win out!
Move over Beyond Beef! Beet burgers are the healthy way to enjoy meat substitutes. The cost, and the fact that Beyond Beef is overly processed, is a no-go for us. So instead of Beyond Beef, we’re making our own Beyond Beet burgers with real andnutritious ingredients.
Sweet potato shepherd’s pie is probably my favourite make-ahead meal because there’s enough to eat some the same day and also freeze for later! It’s always a tasty treat to grab an extra one out of the freezer on those days that you just don’t feel like cooking.
This creamy lentil curry is one of those one pot wonders! It’s great as a side dish or over rice, but recently we paired it with delicata squash and discovered that lentil squash boats are a keeper! Another go to recipe for meatless Monday!
Do you ever just hang out in front of an open fridge and draw a blank? Those are the days that we really don’t know what we want for dinner. Well, if you have a couple red peppers, any kind of rice, some canned beans and corn and some jared salsa, you’ve got a quick and simple dinner with this mexican style stuffed peppers. Try it for meatless Monday!
