EasyPeasy Yummy Lentils

P1080257

Got the idea for these yummy lentils from a sister of mine from Sri Lanka. I remember when I stayed at her flat in London once and she made this for me. First of all, it was DELISH!! and secondly, I couldn’t stop eating it.  I just couldn’t believe how simple it was when she told me about the recipe. This was from her mom to her and luckily down to me.

Wanna try at least one simple lentil recipe? Make it this one and you won’t regret it. Trust me.

Thank you Madusha 😉 Continue reading

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

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

Spiced couscous cake

I read this on one of my cookbooks that said something about a couscous loaf (I’ll dig it out and post the name here when I get back home to Paris) and that was where my inspiration came from. And for lunch yesterday, I was in a Cajun kinda mood so this was the flow  helped with the mighty Tesco spices by my side. You can just set this on the centre table for a light lunch with friends and some salad or even for a picnic. Continue reading

SAS- Spinach Asparagus and Soba noodles

For the Chinese experience, mademoiselle?. “I’ll have Chinese mushrooms and soy sauce, thank you”. And for the Thai? mmmmmm “Coconut milk and chilli please, merci beaucoup”. For one of those nights when you want the heat of Thai food with a chinese twist and this one did it for me. Plus the fact that I have fallen head over heels in love with Chinese mushrooms had everything to do with this. Cook it and you’ll feel what I mean. Continue reading
