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

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 […]

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 […]

Chana-Masala

Chana Masala (Garbanzo Beans)

Ever since I quit using generic store bought spices, I have been craving the taste of Chana Masala without mass produced spices that come out of a box. After lots of experimentation, I think I got it. I tend to like mine sweet and tangy. Most of my recipes don’t call for a lot of chili as I don’t like my food very spicy. Add chili powder to any of my recipes if you want it […]
