Baked Mushroom Curry
Baked Mushroom Curry

This recipe is unlike any curry recipe I have ever cooked or shared on the blog. It is a great example of modern cuisine and the way we cook and eat now. A one-pan baked mushroom curry recipe that is cooked entirely in one pan and entirely in the oven but one that...

Broccoli Soup With Cashew Cream
Broccoli Soup With Cashew Cream

I find that vegetables are a lot like people. Some are ready to be your friend the minute you meet them while some need a nice conversation or two to warm up to you while some need a whole lot of cajoling and tender loving care to let down their guard and allow their...

Turmeric Daal
Turmeric Daal

We eat daal once a week, sometimes twice or even thrice (when I am feeling especially lazy). I have cooked at least fifty different kinds of daal on thousands of occasions. But for some inexplainable reason, I don't have a single daal recipe on the blog. None. So this...

Roasted Cauliflower And Ricotta Grandma Pie

What the heck is a Grandma Pie? I know you are thinking it, because that was my very first thought when I came across a Cauliflower Grandma Pie recipe on Bon Appetit that I HAD to make. So I decided to research. I went to Google. Google told me that a Grandma Pie was...

Thai Red Curry Tofu Soup With Sweet Potato Noodles
Thai Red Curry Tofu Soup With Sweet Potato Noodles

A good spiralizer can change your life. I have the Paderno brand and it is so easy to noodle the living daylights out of any veggie, that even a four year old can do it. But there is this thing. Not all veggies are four-year old friendly in terms of noodling. There is...

Creamy Sweet Potato And Halloumi Pasta

I love gnocchi. And there are days when the chilly weather creeps up my spine that I will obsess about gnocchi in all shapes and sizes. But for the rest of the year, I'd take a textural pasta any day. I love tossing and pairing ingredients that will add a hefty bite...

Mushroom Broth
Mushroom Broth

I have yet to try bone broth. I probably never will. I have never claimed to be a vegetarian. I do enjoy my occasional chicken, more frequent fish and the odd bowl of bolognese. But despite its professed health benefits, the idea of drinking very meaty concentrated...
