July's Hottest New Recipes From milkadamia: Vegan Butter Chicken and Potato Leek Colcannon

Unfortunately it appears that we’re going to need to cook at home a bit longer than we expected and with so many of us running out of meal ideas it’s time for two delicious new 100% plant-based recipes from the folks at milkadamia to kick off July. 


The first recipe is for a mouth-watering Vegan Butter Chik’n, hearty enough for a family of four but easily prepared in less than an hour. 


The second is for Potato Leek Colcannon, a vegan version of the favorite Irish dish of potatoes, cabbage and leaks which has only six ingredients and five easy preparation steps!


These two dishes are definitely not the same-old, same-old and both feature the creamy, slightly decadent taste of macadamia nut-based milks, creamers and buttery spread from milkadamia.
