Welcome to Chef Priyanka: “I Got 99 Problems, but a Meal Ain’t 1”

My specialty is bringing together ingredients, flavors, and concepts of different cultures through original vegetarian dishes. My cooking skills have landed me a spot on a Food Network Show Cooks vs Cons, which aired Wed Sept 13th and I WON as a CON! I beat out 2 professional and 1 amateur chefs to take home the prize of $10,000! I have been featured in the Staten Island Advance for my Food Network appearance and win!

Born and raised in Staten Island, NY, I have been cooking and developing recipes for 15+ years. I have been recognized by foodgawker, Zagat, PETA, and Meatless Monday, among others for my creation of original vegetarian and vegan recipes such as Sweet Potato Masala Burgers and Chipotle Pumpkin Tortas

My social media handles include: @chefpriyanka instagram@chefpriyanka twitter @chefpriyanka Facebook 

I am currently in the midst of writing my first cookbook – The Modern Tiffin: Own Your Lunch – a vegetarian cookbook featuring portable recipes portioned for 1-2 people based on the concept of tiffins (with vegan/raw/plant-based options throughout the book). I am looking to educate people on how vegetarian food can be healthy, fun, and satisfying and share my lifestyle with others. Follow The Spicy Mango for continuous updates!

  1. yes definitely! For breakfast (if you eat eggs) you can make my healthy eggwhite and cheese on a roll and wrap it in foil (i take that work and eat it on the bus!), for lunch you can wrap up the Mediterranean veggie burger in foil (to be fast just replace the grilled onions with raw onions, or take them out altogether!), and I’m going to be posting a variety of lunch and snack options to ear throughout the day! Let me know if this helps :)

  2. Glad I found you-you’re so young, pretty, an economist, a great cook and a vegetarian-wow! Although I’m a nonveg, I’d like to turn vegetarian one day and I’m going to look to your blog for more inspiration for that :-)…great blog!

    1. i woke up to your message and it made my day, literally! I’m so happy my recipes and tips can inspire you! No worries, I was a chickatarian not too long ago! I hope you visit more often and let me know if you make any of my recipes :)

  4. Loving your recipes, and your amazing efforts into making it worth reading. If you are interested I could repost some of your recipes on The Cooking Channel. The whole idea of cooking channel is hosting recipes worthy of posting. So you are more then welcome. Just contact me on the site if you want.

  5. Well, basicly you just did your share. I am asking permission since I had some other girl blaming me of plagiarism or something (Im dutch). So I removed it, and asking for permission, which is pretty logical. If you think about it. Anyway, I will just post your recipes, from a to z , not all in one go, just while I work on it, I will post some of yours too, and we do a little blogroll ofcourse, I will do it anyway. So just sit back and watch the posts on the cooking channel, one little sidenote: I use related image + related links, hope thats okay. Its all for seo reasons. Have a great day and I will keep in touch about the developments, you just keep on cooking!

    1. Hey,

      I saw the links- looks good! Are you putting a linkback to my site/blog? If so, where can I find it, because I don’t see it anywhere! Where it’s written “By chefPriyanka” the “chefPriyanka” should be a link to my blog. At least, that’s would I would do!

  6. Pri – in case you haven’t yet, you should check out Gourmet LIVE – see how you can push your recipes out there and / or engage with them via Twitter and Facebook.
