If you're not familiar with Thug Kitchen, then you probably had your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram deactivated over the past couple months.

In August of 2012, a Tumblr blog by the name of Thug Kitchen launched its first blog post, a hilarious image that uses some real hip-hop, "fuck you" type dialogue to talk health. The image caught on like Internet wildfire, and they've been leading the wave of 'Fuck You' Veganism ever since.

Here is their latest recipe, a Roasted Strawberry Salad that is essentially the equivelant of plant nachos:



16 medium strawberries, about 1 pound
1 teaspoon olive oil
a pinch of salt
ᅡᄑ cup coconut flakes (you can use sliced almonds to save some cash)
ᅡᄐ cup lemon juice
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons olive oil
a big bunch of basil, choppedᅡᅠinto thin strips, about 2/3 cup
salt and pepper to taste
1 big head of lettuce (green leaf, spinach, butter, whatthefuckever kind of lettuce is fine)

Warm up your oven to 400 degrees. Cut the green tops off the strawberriesᅡᅠand throw that shit out.ᅡᅠ Slice the berries in half lengthwise. Toss them in a bowl with the teaspoon of olive oil and salt. Mix that shit up good so everything is coated. Put the strawberries cut side down on a cookie sheet. I hate doing dishes so I usually cover the cookie sheet with foil or something because the strawberries can release some juice and it's annoying asᅡᅠfuck to clean. Roast the strawberries for 10 minutes. Throw the coconut flakes in their own section on the cookie sheet and then roast themᅡᅠat the same timeᅡᅠfor three more minutes or until the coconut looks toasted. Let everything cool the fuck down to about room temperature.

Mix together the lemon juice, vinegar and oil in a small glass.ᅡᅠᅡᅠToss the lettuce and the basil in a big bowl and add as much of the dressing, salt and pepper as you like.ᅡᅠMake sure everything is coated and then put the strawberries and coconut flakes on top.ᅡᅠᅡᅠArrange that shit so it looks nice. If youᅡᅠdon't feel like fucking with the oven then just leave the strawberries raw. I don't give a shit JUST EAT A FUCKING SALAD or 10.

Serve 4 people as a side or one jolly green giant.
