84th&3rd | Spicy Carrot, Tomato and Lentil Soup I love soup. I know, it’s a big statement. There is this little cafe downstairs from my day-job office.

Gobi Matar/ Cauliflower And Peas Curry Another curry that I make often these days, is this Gobi Matar/ Cauliflower And Peas Curry, the reasons being, this curry goes well with both rotis and rice, super easy to prepare and tastes very good. To add to all the above and the most important, my daughter, who's not a big fan of this vegetable, except in Pakoras/ Fritters and Manchurians ( both deep fried) likes cauliflower cooked this way, which is much more healthier. It's not a gravy, it would fall between semi-dry to dry curry. If you have leftovers, you can very well use it as a filling for a very tasty sandwich the next day..Need To HaveCauliflower - 1 medium headFresh Or Frozen Green Peas - 1 cupTomatoes - 2, pureedGrated Ginger - 1 tablespoonGrated Garlic - 4 clovesTurmeric Powder - 1/4 teaspoonRed Chilly Powder - 1/2 teaspoonCoriander Powder - 2 teaspoonsGaram Masala - 1/2 teaspoonCumin Seeds - 1 teaspoonSalt - to tasteMethod Cut the cauliflower into medium size florets, wash, blanch and keep.

Zucchini Ribbons « Cooking Cleverly For the first few months I lived here, I lived mainly off of pasta. In the past, I’ve tried to avoid such a large pasta intake – not only does it get boring, but it is usually some sort of carbohydrate-heavy dish drenched with fatty toppings. Despite these usual fears, though, pasta was a safe option in a world of unknown and un-findable food. Having explored the grocery stores a bit and discovered some delicious Indonesian dishes, I am again veering away from pasta. That said – I do sometimes miss it. Zucchini is not something that has interested me much in the past. Now, I have. This makes for a super healthy, tasty, and practically calorie and fat free snack/side/meal.

Rustic Tuscan Vegetable Soup | Simply Love Food It’s finally “winter” here in the desert. And after a brutally hot summer I am READY for the cold. We just had a crazy winter storm that brought lots of rain & snow up north and even sleet here in Phoenix! This crazy weather made me crave a nice hot bowl of soup…I didn’t want a bowl of brothy soup, but one that was rather hearty, yet filling AND healthy. Directions In a small bowl mash half of the beans with a masher or the back of a spoon, and set aside. Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the broth and tomatoes with the juice and bring to a boil. Serve topped with Parmesan, if desired.
Homemade Almond Milk The following article was written by Kaycee Basset and originally appeared on Vegan Machine.com. Almond milk is my favorite kind of milk! Not only is it the healthiest (in my opinion), it also tastes the best. Almond milk is loaded with protein, calcium, and vitamin E, typically having more protein and calcium than mammal’s milk. There are many different ways to make almond milk. Making almond milk will be a two-day process if you decide to blanch the almonds (cook them to remove the skin), so if you get a craving, start making it right away. My favorite almond milk recipe is for a cooked version flavored with vanilla and cinnamon. Vanilla Cinnamon Almond Milk 1 1/2 cups raw almonds 1 tsp. vanilla extract 4 cups water Pinch of cinnamon Blanching Making the Almond Milk In a blender, combine the almonds, the vanilla, and 2 cups water. As I mentioned, there are many different ways to make almond milk. Get creative!
Greek Garlic-Lemon Potatoes Recipe About a month back, a dear reader Sudha asked me for a Potato recipe which is my all time fav. She said she loved roast potatoes and that which makes it often.
