Vegan Black Bean Burger with Mango Salsa

We eat a lot of beans but I’ve often resisted making "bean burgers”. It’s not that I don’t like them, It’s just that, most bean burgers have the texture of mush which I do not find appealing at all. A while ago I tried the bean burger recipe from the Food lab of Serious Eats. It was a win at first try! The tips given in the post gave a perfect burger that was not mushy at all. My family loved it and after that I tried it with different combination and spices. These burgers have a firm crust on the outside and still moist on the inside. They don’t fall apart when cooked and don't squish out the back of the bun when you bite down. What more do you want? With the right ingredients, a little time, and the technique of dehydrating the cooked black beans, I perfected my recipe for vegan black bean burgers. Continue Reading

Minty Fruit Salad

Now, that spring is in full swing I welcome the warm weather with this beautiful fruit salad. It is so simple to prepare that I didn't even intend for this to become a blog recipe, but it's so delicious that I knew I had to share it with you guys! This is no ordinary fruit salad. It goes from simple to sublime when tossed with mint, lemon and fresh grape dressing. When you put a spoonful into your mouth, you can taste a combination of different flavors. This makes the salad feel fancy enough to serve to guests for a potluck, picnic, or party. I actually took this fruit salad to a picnic last week and people loved it. Continue Reading

Dark Pink Velvet Smoothie

Yesterday was Holi, the Indian festival of colors. I saw a lot of yummy foods and drinks posted on various blogs last week, but for some reason I thought this dark pink velvet smoothie was apt to begin the celebrations. Besides, I haven't shared a green smoothie recipe for a long time, especially considering how often I make them. This recipe is an attempt to make a green smoothie more appealing to those who DO NOT like the idea of drinking 'GREENS'. This smoothie has red cabbage as the main ingredient. Aside from the fact that it is simply delicious, and is chock full of nutrients, it is the smoothest smoothie you could ever imagine! Continue Reading

Mango ‘Malai’ (mango fool) – a perfect treat for mango lovers

If there is one fruit that I can't wait for to come in season, then it would be mango. Now that it is end of June and mangoes are at their peak in my neck of the woods, sharing a dessert with you made sense. Mango 'malai' was one of many typical summer desserts for me and my siblings while growing up. It was quick, easy and the taste? Oh so heavenly!
