Let us explain.

iced vegan chai latte

Apparently mother nature wants to keep us at home. We’ve received her message loud and clear. Just this weekend, Los Angeles turned into a walk-in sauna with temperatures reaching a blistering 121°F/50°C in Woodland Hills. Even if we wanted to step outside during this record-breaking heatwave (we didn’t), we would need hi-tech space suits to keep our skin from spontaneously bursting into flames. And if these weren’t enough reasons to keep us inside, enter the recent wildfires spreading across the state of California, coating our blue skies in an unhealthy orange haze, complete with smoky air and falling ashes. Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t dip any lower… but let’s all take a deep breath. The Husbands are here to help, and today we are sharing something that will ease your mind and cool your scorched soul. Please welcome your new summer savior… Iced Vegan Chai Latte.

Listen carefully. Those are the sounds of sparkling bubbles. We are clinking glasses and sipping something fizzy today because this new recipe deserves a celebration. We wanted to create a classic marinara sauce that is bold and memorable, so we tested and refined it until it was just right. Toss it with your favorite pasta, use it as a base for your next pizza night, and treat yourself to shakshuka the next morning with any leftover sauce. No matter how you decide to use it, this magic marinara is truly a classic. Also known as Husbands’ Marinara, we’d like to let you in on a few of our secrets.

vegan frittata

vegan frittata

Is it December yet? 2020 has been a heck of a year. We hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. We know several friends who have caught the coronavirus, so we are taking this pandemic very seriously. We are staying home as much as possible and haven’t even been to the grocery store since March. Instead, we have been using curbside pickup and buying products online. We rarely order takeout and have been cooking up a storm at home, so we’ve stocked our cupboards with bulk items to make a variety of meals at a moment’s notice. We have an entire cabinet with meticulously labeled glass jars filled with quinoa, lentils, oats, pastas, flours, an assortment of grains and rice—and of course, the dark chocolate chips that Adam claims are an essential part of his daily nutritional needs. We also keep plenty of canned goods in the pantry, like black beans, whole italian tomatoes, and coconut milk, so we can enjoy dishes like our colorful Caribbean Black Bean Salad, garlicky Pasta Puttanesca, or the easy Indian Curry with Chickpeas and Cauliflower from our cookbook any night of the week. There are dozens of delicious meals you can whip up by simply keeping a few kitchen staples on hand. This new recipe has been on repeat in our house for the past several months, and it comes together in less than 30 minutes. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner—this vegan frittata is a clear winner.
