Power Plantain Patties

By Val Alarcon

When I was 10, my brother and I moved to the United States from our native land of Ecuador to reunite with our parents. Throughout my childhood, we held on to our traditional foods to honor our country. I created this recipe to celebrate one of our many traditional dishes – this one is called the “Bolla de Platano” and I created a version of my own called “Plantain Pattie Breakfast – The Tower of Power Breakfast.”

Vegan Italian Sausage Soup

By Kendra Ramsey

This recipe brings me back to my childhood but with a healthier spin – it’s loaded with veggies and soul soothing flavors! IIN taught me to never fear getting creative in the kitchen. Just because a recipe doesn’t include meat, doesn’t mean your food has to loose its flavor.
