I have been in business for over a decade now and I am humbled every day by the community that surrounds me. I have an amazing community – which you are an important part of – and a growing tribe of 2,100 alumni and counting from the Academy of Culinary Nutrition. When this magical group puts their mind to something, the results are incredible. Case in point? This ultra-tasty dairy-free and gluten-free Brazilian-Inspired Stew created by Culinary Nutrition Expert Thais Melissa van Delft of San Paulo, Brazil, which she donated to From Scratch Cooking 2018, the annual e-cookbook for charity created by the Academy of Culinary Nutrition.
An incredible aspect of the Culinary Nutrition Expert Program is getting to connect with our students around the world and see how traditional dishes can be infused with vibrant, healthy and whole ingredients. This Brazilian Moqueca (basically a stew) is no different and was one of the first recipes I dove into from From Scratch 2018.
One of my favourite projects every year is From Scratch Cooking. We donate 100% of the proceeds we raise to charitable organizations. You can learn more about where the money goes here. From Scratch 2018 is a labour of love for me, my team and our amazing students. We do this with one reason in mind: to make positive change happen in the world.
I am a big fan of this recipe because it’s:
- Absolutely loaded with vegetables, including some of my immune-supportive faves like mushrooms and onions
- Rich in the health-building, anti-microbial fats from the coconut oil and the coconut milk
- Very flexible – you can change up the veggies based on what you have, or you can add your favourite vegan protein or animal protein
- Fantastic served with gluten-free grains or cauliflower rice to keep it grain-free
