A healthy Coleslaw with Coconut Milk Mayonnaise recipe that will please even the pickiest eaters in your home!

New post - Quinoa and Lentil Bowl

A tip to jump start healthier eating is to have healthy food readily available. When hunger strikes, you can quickly put something together instead of running to the cookie jar. Pre-cook and store the quinoa and lentils in large quantities and use them as needed!

Buckwheat Salad!

The one thing that got me making more salads was learning how to use grains and seeds as the base. Yes, salads can be filling, fun, tasty and convenient! #vegan #glutenfree
The word salad invokes a lot of old memories – most of them unpleasant. For a country which boasts the lowest meat consumption rate in the world, India surprisingly lacks salads in their meals. In fact, I don’t remember ever eating a salad as a meal in India. I think this has something to do …

[New post] Red Cabbage Salad & Soaking in the Colors of India!
In one of my posts earlier, I wrote about how in India it always smells like something. Now that I am actually here, I am realizing that it’s not just your nose that has to work overtime – India puts all your senses in overdrive! Your ears are bombarded with sounds every minute of the …

Foreign Returned. Even now, some of the matrimonial ads in India use this phrase as a qualification of the prospective bride or groom. The crème de la crème of the society get to visit “the foreign”, and it is something to be proud of. उनके फॉरिन मे बहोट कनेक्षन्स हेई – He has a lot …

I don’t know if we each have a destiny, or if we’re all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze. But I think maybe it’s both. Maybe both are happening at the same time. - Forrest Gump When my path crossed with Anup’s 20 years ago at a high school in India, I was floating …

There are no mistakes in salads, darling, not like life! Peach and Tomato Salad with Avocado! A salad Colonel Frank Slade would be proud of! #Glutenfree #vegan #salad
“Some people live a lifetime in a minute. What are you doing NOW?” – Col. Frank Slade, Scent of a Woman. Anup is an old soul in a young body. His choice in movies, music and food make me think that he is in his fifties. One of his all time favorite movies is “Scent …

Fenugreek Leaves & Yellow Moong Salad! #vegan #glutenfree

India is a harsh teacher - learning to enjoy the rainy days and bitter greens! 
Ever since I called the western world my home about 14 years ago, my visits back to India start out with me being paraded around like a show pony in front of all my extended family. I am not talking 4-5 homes here, the first 7-10 days are assigned to this ritual. This is to …

I love cooking with seeds and this Buckwheat Salad is my absolute favorite! Buckwheat is a protein & fiber rich seed that is also gluten-free. 
It is my last week in India and I am so grateful I got to celebrate Diwali and the Hindu New Year with my family. India has changed so much in the past 20 years, sometimes it’s hard to believe this is the same country I grew up in! From cell phones to luxury cars, …

Introduction
Mother Nature has already done all the hard work and given us great tasting ingredients. Your job as a cook is to start with the freshest seasonal produce and not to mask it by overcooking. Let the natural taste of ingredients from the farm shine on your plate, and take all the credit for nature's work! That's what I do on Farm on Plate!
