For Kitchen Creations, Chef Ronnie Nasuti from Tiki's Grill and Bar featured produce from Kahuku farms. It's a farm that dates back to the early 1900's on Oahu's North Shore. They're known for everything from papaya to bananas to eggplant.

Chef Ronnie created a vegetarian dish which he will feature for an upcoming fundraiser for Leeward Community College this weekend. His recipes are below.
