GET THE DAL RECIPE: (live at 2pm)

Bulgogi is traditional Korean dish made with thin soy and sugar marinated slices of beef or pork grilled on a barbecue or on a stove-top griddle. I chose to replace the meat with mushrooms. You
can use any mushrooms you love, but I personally love the taste and texture or Portobello mushrooms and oyster mushrooms. Mushrooms mimic the texture of meat perfectly when cooked
and because of their spongy texture soak up lots of flavour from the marinade. I serve the tangy mushrooms in lettuce cups with rice and homemade kimchi for a light but flavour-packed dinner.

Dal is a term in the Indian subcontinent for dried, lentils, peas, and beans. The term is also used for various soups prepared from these. This yummy Indian dal curry is a nutritious and flavourful vegetarian dish that’s quick to whip up and makes amazing leftovers. There are MANY variations for preparing dal, but this one is my quick go-to. Serve this easy dal recipe with toasted garlic naan or rice and warm yourself from the inside out.

  1. Candice, Candace (not sure which way you spell your name), please check out Walmart before letting them sponsor your channel or videos. There was a petition online not too long ago for them to start treating the animals on their farms humanely, both before and during slaughter, which is asinine to me, because how humane is slaughter? But, off topic. When did you get married, where are the pictures, and did James fully convert to veganism?

  2. You live in Canada right? Can you try to do the "Vegan Pad Thai" from Thai Express!? Its so good! I've been trying to figure it out myself but i just can't get it right!

  3. We just got an instant pot and have only been making rice and steamed veggies in it so far. These recipes look delicious, I can’t wait to try them! Please make more of these videos!

  4. I have an instant pot recently became a vegan and just love your recipes. However I've been cooking a lot with my instapot following recipes on YouTube and every time I make anything my instapot switches over from pressure cook to give me a burned error. I'm using the amount of fluid that are in the recipes, but still everything shuts off with a burn error. I'm wondering if it's because I have the 8qt and these are too small of a meals to use only half a cup of water. Can someone please let me know what I'm doing wrong

  5. For the Bulgogi. If you don't like it spicy, what could replace the spice? It looks so good but I'm not a fan of even mildly spicy food.

  6. I wanted an Instant Pot for Xmas but I got a multicooker with everything an instant pot has except the pressure cooking. I’m assuming I can make these recipes but it would just take longer?

  7. As usual great recipes and I can’t wait to try them!
    Can you make a link to your homemade kimchi recipe prettyyyyyyyy pleaaassssseeeeee!

  8. For the Korean recipe, try to find Korean red pepper paste on amazon or your local Asian market so it can be more authentic 👍

  9. i know you are trying to make a living, but Walmart is not the company you want to get in bed with, if being ethical is anywhere on your radar (like most vegans)

  10. I'm assuming I can make these in a pot if I don't have the instant pot? It would have been cool to have a giveaway! I've seen these WAY cheaper on Black Friday sales on Amazon so if you can wait for a good sale do so!

  11. I become a vegeterian and eventually want to become a vegan but since I've started (about 2 weeks ago) a couple hours after i eat breakfast ( which is a vegeterian breakfast) i feel like my blood sugars drops and i feel like im gonna pass out and i start shaking so i eat candy or something and it helps but what should i do? Do i need more fruit in the morning? Please help im scared

  12. These are excellent! Also….. CUTE braids! I love my pressure cooker! It's so easy to meal prep with it and create some delicious meals like these! Great vid like always!
