Creamy Quinoa in juicy Apricots

Are you ready for another ‘easy? peasy? go!’ recipe? Here it is guys. On the Friday before we flew to England, I saw these juicy beauties at the early morning market. The guy at the stall enticed me with a taste after which I just grabbed a ‘baquette’ and skipped home ever so merrily. I didn’t know what to do with them at first but one sure thing was that I wanted their natural beauty to shine through so I decided not to cook them in any way but just keep it fresh, simple and of course tasty. So I dreamt about this combination and when I finished making them, I was glad the man-boy at the stall introduced me to these juicy cuties. Continue reading

Puffed quinoa and dark chocolate slices

Hii guys, we returned yesterday night from England and had such an amazing time with my teacher and the sangha. I will be posting pictures here soon (although not much of the party itself, just of the food…you know me) Continue reading

Ever-changing Flow

Hii all, sorry it has been quiet here at FreeFlowFoodie. I just came back from my sister’s on Tuesday and yet again, my life is changing inside out. Starting with the fact that we will be moving away from Paris very soon so the days have been spent talking about what we are going to do with our lives, not coming up with any answer and being asked yet again by the universe if we can trust this “seeminingly” directionless flow to wherever it is going to lead us.

I must admit there is great doubt in my mind about everything but I occasionally find myself in that space of full trust, immense joy, and full-on gratitude at the way life is “polishing” us, polishing me and I know in deep in my heart that all will be well. But this is sometimes quickly replaced by all my mind stuff and worries and this ‘n’ that and…..there I go again. Continue reading

Thyme ‘n’ Coconut lentil fingers

Hii guys, I hope you’re all well. For the past weekend, I stayed at my teachers place for some yoga living, loving, satsang and kirtan. ‘Twas magical! and for the gathering, I was flicking through a cookbook (Rose Elliot’s Complete Vegetarian) in the kitchen and found this recipe and decided to make it. So yesterday I decided make these yummies again but differently by baking it instead of frying incorporating some strong flavours with red onions, coconut cream and the strong thyme that is sure to wake your tastebuds with warmth at the first bite. I served it up with the hot almond tomato sauce and it was delish. Continue reading

Hot almond tomato sauce

I had this yesterday with rice and let’s just say I was very happy. My moon cycle is coming and this month it’s all about ‘zee spice :-). I wanted it spicy and I wanted it quick and here it is my friends. This one packs a deep spicy bunch with 2 scotch bonnet chilli’s. If you’re not as crazy as me on the chilli front then you’re more than welcome to use half a bonnet, skip it all together or replacing with normal ground black pepper instead. Have fun 😉 Continue reading

Hot ‘n’ Sweet Nutty Quinoa salad

sweet and spicy quinoa salad

More often than not when I start with the idea of making something for “the blog”, I find myself blocked with nothing flowing. I go into this state of trying too hard to make something “perfect” or be a certain way that I almost always mess it up. Continue reading
