Cucumber Avocado Shake

Cucumber Avocado Shake

My favourite summer time drink! I am regularly at the Vancouver farmers markets, usually selling my Chai and Spices. At every market, I will trade tea for various produce. Cucumbers being one of them during season. I really love this shake below and it is easy to make and carry especially when I am busy and have no time to stop to eat at the markets. This works really well with my diabetes prevention diet […]

Truffles

Chai Spice Walnut Truffles

I have a sweet tooth and when I went on raw food vegan diet for curing my diabetes & quit sugar, I experimented with many desserts that I could safely eat. My friends who have by now all tried these goodies asked if I would post it so here you go! I tried many sweeteners which don’t elevate my blood sugar. Stevia, it’s hit or miss for me. If I have the wrong amount it […]

Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken

At my last Holiday Craft Fair the Chicken Tikka/ Butter Chicken  masala was a hit. I have a recipe for the Tikka on this blog and promised all there would be one for the Butter Chicken. Again my cousin Karen in London, helped me out with this recipe. I found this fairly quick and made this meal during my busiest work week as it happened to be my husband’s birthday. Had to make a ‘Bada […]

Chicken-Tikka

Best Chicken Tikka

Back home in India, we never cooked Chicken Tikka at home, just went out to eat it! In the past, I was often asked if I can make this dish and so I asked my international family for help! My Cousin Karen lives in London and has been cooking this incredible Chicken Tikka for a long time. Living in London, she knows exactly what this dish should taste like. We love exchanging and trying different […]

Chicken Roast

Tandoori Roast Chicken – Indian Style

Ever since I made my new Tandoori Marinade, I cannot stop using it on everything. Roasts, kebabs, vegetables. The stuffing is my grandmother’s recipe, it’s the best part of course. Great for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any of the Holidays. When I make it, I fry the bread for the stuffing in bacon fat ;-D My Mangalore Curry (Pepper based masala), is a spice you MUST have in your kitchen. No dish for me is complete without […]

Chutneys-&-Salads

Apple Chutney – Sweet & Spicy

My neighbour Eric showed up with a bucket full of apples from his tree and I thought it was a good idea to make apple chutney. I have a family recipe that is simple and can be used for any fruit chutney. The hard part is the peeling, coring and slicing! I decided not to can this batch as I’m giving most away and keeping what we need. The original recipe called for equal parts […]

Raw pestos

Raw Pestos

With all the mint, basil and cilantro growing this time if the year, I’ve been making a lot of spreads and adding them to my home made raw crackers! You can also spread them on vegetables. Please note that I often substitute the nuts I used in each recipe for pine nuts, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds. Both make about 1 cup. Nutrition is based on 8 servings. Cilantro Sunflower Seed Pesto 1 bunch cilantro […]

Hummus

Hummus

Whenever I have soak garbanzo beans for my chana masala, I soak extra to make hummus. This is a basic hummus recipe which I jazzed up using my organic spices. Please read the section about soaking and sprouting. Ditch those beans in a can folks! Your body will thank you. It’s better for the environment as well to not have so many cans. Ingredients: 1 cup sprouted garbanzo beans (chickpeas) 1/4 cup lemon juice 1/4 cup […]
