Hello all, it's @justinparke here! Welcome to the same ole' Plant Based Challenge, but in our new community! Not much has changed at all, except if you'd like to earn LOTUS for your posts, you'll now need to use the tag #lotus instead of #naturalmedicine. You can read about WHY we've moved here - rest assured, no drama - just a reorganizing!
First of all, a few changes - the challenge post and the wrap up will be in the ONE post this time. We also have a nice few delegations coming in, so our upvote is starting to grow. If you'd like to support #vegan #plantbased content in this community, us plant powered folk would all appreciate it!
The latest Plant-Based Weekly Cooking Challenge features a new set of ingredients for the week ahead's challenge!

Week #26 Winner(s)
Vegan cashew mock cheesecakes are wickedly simple to make, although the coconut milk, coconut oil, and cashews may not be locally affordable or available depending on where you are in the world. This one by chef @sreypov is a perfect example of a basic recipe with the addition of mint. Once you perfect the your basic cheesecake skills, you can branch out into flavors like dragonfruit, avocado, and more!!
Congratulations @sreypov! You are the winner of 6 HIVE.
2nd & 3rd Prize Winners
Many chef overlook side dishes, putting little effort and pizazz into these import meal partners. Our 2nd place prize winner, chef @blackberryskunk showed us how to prepare some incredible roasted carrots, a side I think fit for just about any meal. In a pinch, these beauties look so delicious I could probably pair them with a bowl of steamed rice for a light breakfast or lunch.
Speaking of delicious sides, chef @umirais, our 3rd prize winner, shared a lovely green mango sauce. Although it looks a bit more like a salad to me, I know I'd love it based on the ingredients and preparation technique. She did forget to make it fully vegan by including shrimp paste in her recipe, but it would be very easy to convert this recipe to fully #plantbased.
