5-Min Salted Pecan Cinnamon Nut Butter

When I was little and the weather got cold in Mumbai during winter (or as cold as it could possibly get, which I am now realising wasn't a whole lot after experiencing winter in Sydney which in turn might seem very tame to you Swedes or Canadians), my mum used to make the most delicious treat. She used to call it Pak or winter fudge. It was made with toasted wheat flour, almonds, cardamom, ghee and edible gum. Ayurveda believed this to be war... Read More >>

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad With Harissa Chickpeas

Are you a sweet potato person? What I am asking is that when you go to a restaurant, do you look at the menu and if you spot sweet potato then that is the dish you order? Oh Yes! Me too!

But I am also a cauliflower, mushroom, avocado, chickpea, spinach person. If a d... Read More >>

So I started putting aside 15 minutes each day to research and order/plan/buy presents both online and in stores. Two weeks of 15 minutes a day and ... Read More >>

Slow Cooked Apple Tart Overnight Oats

I first discovered steel cut oats approximately 5 years ago. Following the instructions on the back of the pack, I cooked them for 30 minutes and it was love at first chewy bite. In fact, I loved them so much and was so obsessed with cooking them every morning that I even included a recipe for creamy, honeyed, steel cut oats in my cookbook. Then last night, I slow cooked them for 8 hours in my slow cooker and when I woke up to the smell of ap... Read More >>
Nutty Cacao Smoothie - Cook Republic

Nutty Cacao Smoothie

I have been a smoothie drinker for about four years now. On some days in the week, I will sneak in a smoothie mid-morning after my breakfast. And although green smoothies are nice and I will create a delicious glass once in a while, I am not fanatic about them. I feel that often they are very high in fibre and lack a balance. I love a carefully concocted glass of creaminess balanced with fruit, veggies, nuts and some superfoods that you would... Read More >>
