Jackfruit BBQ
“Jackfruit can be ordered from the Internet, but I was determined to find it in Louisville. I looked at health food stores and specialty markets in my neighborhood with no luck. I was excited when I stumbled upon some at a large national grocery store in my mom’s neighborhood. It was in syrup, but I didn’t realize that this was not what I wanted for this dish. I went straight home and made some of the most sickeningly sweet ‘pulled pork’ you have ever had. I tried to eat it, but threw my sandwich away after two bites. Life is too short to waste a meal on something terrible. Darrick hates to waste food and so he forced down the entire sandwich. However, the next day he suggested we ‘share it’ with the neighborhood squirrels.I finally procured jackfruit in brine from an Indian grocery store next to our favorite Indian restaurant. We bought twenty cans, and so began the long journey of making vegan pulled pork. It took eleven attempts, but I finally perfected the recipe. The secret is baking the jackfruit with the slightly sweet BBQ sauce. The flavor deepens and caramelizes in the oven and the jackfruit takes on a slightly chewy texture.”— Damaris PhillipsThis recipe is courtesy of Southern Girl Meets Vegetarian Boy.

pulled pork
“My brother Isaiah, Ike for short, makes unbelievable pulled pork. He carefully smokes the pork butt over the lowest imaginable heat for four hours before roasting it in the oven for an additional five to six hours. The result is undeniably delicious, but I do not have the patience for manning a smoker for that long and I am always out of wood chips, so I developed a pulled pork recipe that ‘cheats.’ Using liquid smoke eliminates the need for smoking and reduces the cooking time by almost half. Come to think of it, I am not sure what it ‘cheats,’ because it is not the flavor, that’s for sure!”— Damaris PhillipsThis recipe is courtesy of Southern Girl Meets Vegetarian Boy.

Don’t pay attention to the temperature! Grilling is the perfect year-round activity, especially when using a robust brew like Samuel Adams Boston Lager that has a rich malt and roast character; it’s the perfect beer to emphasize the wonderful flavors the food gets from being grilled. The balance between the malt and the hops and moderate alcohol level make it a flavorful and complex brew that is perfect for pairing with all kinds of food.  Experiment!  Enjoy!!

Acorn Squash Soup
Recipe Courtesy of Dr. Josh Axe, DNM, DC, CNSTis the season for soup. After all, nothing’s more comforting on a cold night, and nothing’s easier to prepare. This soup combines two squashes—acorn and butternut—in a dish that’s satisfying and also super healthy. Not only is butternut squash full of vitamin A and C, but it also yields a creamy consistency that is often hard to create without using actual cream.You may also be surprised to find ginger and cinnamon in this recipe. In addition to adding great flavor, they are health-boosting, warming spices that have been used in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine to improve digestion and heal the body for thousands of years.Combine those ingredients with gut-healing bone broth (I recommend chicken bone broth, though regular veggie broth works, too), and you have a dish that’s equal parts comforting and nourishing. -Dr. Axe
