Pilina - Connecting through the rich, local flavors of our islands

2023 United Way cookbook fundraiser

Our new United Way cookbook is all about reconnecting with family and friends over shared meals with recipes contributed by our Hawaiian Electric ohana.

Pilina, meaning “to make connections” in the Hawaiian language, features more than 120 recipes that include the use of popular time- and energy-saving appliances — such as the instant pot, air fryer and pressure cooker - and also recipes for vegetarians and vegans that highlight fresh, locally-sourced produce and ingredients. Priced at $15, this year's edition features a foldable stand with spiral-bound top for easy flipping to a favorite recipe.

Home cooks will find recipes in every category: appetizers, breakfast/brunch, soups/salads, main entrées, and desserts. Liven up your meal plans with these fresh ideas: Avocado Sashimi, Fried Ulu, Cinnamon Bun Cake, Hearty Oxtail Soup, Taegu Noodle Salad, Pot Pie Pasta, Bourbon Short Ribs, Edamame & Mushroom Risotto, Bok Choy Tofu, Pull Apart Cheesy Bread, Lemon Crunch Cookies and Fuji Apple Float, to name a few!
