Former Contestant on Top Chef Masters, Marco Pierre White. Chef Franklin Becker didn’t want to sacrifice the pleasure of a truly good meal to eat “healthy”.
Being diagnosed with type-2 diabetes at the age of 27, and having his son diagnosed with autism set fire to Franklin’s desire to create food that not only tasted great, yet was also healthy. Thus, Hungryroot, a company that makes comfort foods from vegetables was born.
Hungryroot uses vegetables in dishes we all love, but don't typically associate with vegetables, like cauliflower couscous, black bean brownies, and maple chickpea pancakes.
Would I be able to taste the difference between healthy brownies made of black beans and cookies made of chickpeas? What do they taste like?
I invited Chef Franklin Becker onto the show to learn more.
