Another new vegan cooking show debuted on YouTube this September 7, and fans of MTV’s “Dirty Sanchez” might recognize the man behind the new program: Welsh TV personality and endurance athlete, Matthew Pritchard.

Pritchard’s newest effort, called “Pritchard’s Proper Vegan Cookin’,” aims to show viewers just how easy and affordable it is to adopt and thrive on plant-based food.

“Following years of fame as a star of MTV’s hit show, ‘Dirty Sanchez’, Mathew Pritchard made the unprecedented move from the world of television and stunts to being an endurance athlete. Breaking world records and tackling any challenge in his path, Pritch credits much of this to his change in diet in becoming 100 percent vegan,” reads the show’s YouTube description.

For the show’s inaugural episode, Pritchard takes viewers through the steps of making “Pritchard’s Proper Vegan Chickpea Curry.” Congratulations, Pritchard! We’re sure there are many great things to come from your channel.

Want more protein? These Red Lentil and Amaranth Protein Patties With Spicy Avocado Mayo by Renee Press are a great choice.

These little patties are so simple to whip up, amazingly versatile, and almost fool-proof. They come together in no time, and you can change up the ingredients based on what you have in the fridge. They are great on top of a salad, as an appetizer with a nice dipping sauce, or make them slightly larger and serve on a bun as a tempting veggie burger. The possibilities are endless. To boot, they are extremely nutritious, filled with lentils and amaranth which are packed with plant protein, and both of which are great for metabolism and heart health.
