Gourmet Vegan Pasta Recipe To WOW Your Friends


This is a vegan pasta recipe you do not want to miss.  Today we have the most mouthwatering Black Bean Pasta over Garlic Turmeric Sauce, with Swiss Chard & Mushrooms on #LunchBreakLIVE with Chef Frank Kraemer, founder of “Eat Like a Vegan Chef.” With 30 years of experience working in top-notch restaurants around New York, Germany, and the Caribbean, Chef Frank shows us how to make this delicious dish.  Let’s check it out…




“I’m passionate about helping people. Taking my 30 years of professional cooking, and the knowledge I gained through reading hundreds of nutrition books, I can definitely make a difference in someone’s life.”- CHEF FRANK

Chef Frank has delighted critics, hotel guests, and customers alike with his delectable plant-based dishes. He hails from the small German town of Krefeld. Chef Frank has cooked professionally for over 30 years in Germany, the Caribbean, and, finally, New York. He has mastered many cuisines including Spanish, Mediterranean, and Italian.

He has cooked in chaotic, but revered, hotel kitchens in the Big Apple, where he worked as an Executive Chef at both the 4-star Japanese boutique hotel Kitano on prestigious Park Avenue and the Hilton. His menu has been featured in the Best 100 Restaurant Menus in NYC. He was also named Best NY Hotel Chef Of The Year by the American Tasting Institute. He has cooked for athletes, celebrities, and VIPs, such as Maria Sharapova, Roger Federer, Star Jones, the Japanese Princess, and many more.

Today, Chef Frank is the culinary genius behind Eat Like A Vegan Chef. After seeing his mom suffering from breast cancer and Alzheimer’s he knew he had to do something. Other family members were suffering from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and strokes. He took all this as a warning sign…

He recognized the enormous amount of energy people use on a daily basis. He saw how unhealthy and unsustainable most of us live. Most people eat to survive, instead of eating to nourish their bodies.

To stay healthy, he tried one diet after another to see which one would make him feel good, and let him lose excess fat. From low carb to high-fat diets, he tried them all. Without success, he looked to nutrition books and read dozens of them. Then he found Dr. Campbell’s China Study.

When he investigated the benefits of a whole-food, plant-based diet, he learned it isn’t a diet, but a lifestyle. He became certified in whole food, plant-based nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies at Cornell.

As a vegan chef, he has cooked for two world champion boxers. This proved, once and for all, that a plant-based lifestyle has a rightful place on the dinner table.

Today, Chef Frank has helped people lose thousands of pounds. Now, these people are living life to the fullest through a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle. In fact, he created his S.O.A.P.A. Free Lifestyle concept. This is a combination of meal plans, shopping lists, recipes, and cooking techniques. Following this lifestyle has helped his members get healthier and melt away excess weight.
