••• Repost from my original @sbarot22 ••• Canada Day Long Weekend Cooking by dad!
1. Cut vegetables (pineapple, mushrooms, large bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini) and cut paneer into large cubes
2. Poke a few holes through the paneer cubes
3. Make the marinate: Get thick yogurt and pour into an empty bowl and add in 1 spoonful of tandoori masala (if you don't have that then make your own by mixing spoonfuls of marchu masala (chilli powder), dhana jeeru (cumin/coriander powder), lemon, turmeric, rock salt, salt)
4. Put ghee or oil on a greased sheet or on the bottom of an oven tray
5. Marinate the veggies (dip them in the marinated mixture you made with yogurt and spices and make sure everything is covered completely)
6. Cook at 350 Farenheit in the oven for 30 mins
It ain't Gujarati food unless it's yellow. We sure do love our yellow!!! Turmeric has antioxidant properties and is one of the healthiest spices to consume. Alongside the blood-purifying agents, it's also great for maintaining healthy skin. I always go to the makeup store and can never find the correct undertone to match my skin and looks like all this turmeric is to blame for the golden-yellow hue #gujaratithali#turmeric#indianspices#gujaratifood#indianfood#vegetarian#indianthali#khandvi
Another restaurant feature; one of my favourite vegan restaurants in Toronto - Vegetarian Haven!
Not only is it vegan but it has a Buddhist vibe with no onion or garlic used in their cooking. Onions and garlic are known to overpower the natural flavours of the food and bring forth other thoughts. They say you are what you eat and they weren't wrong hundreds of years ago when Hindus, Jains, and Buddhists excluded onion/garlic from their food. Every ingredient that you eat is composed of certain structural properties of organic compounds that interact and alter your brain chemistry and the O/G families have structures that alter it to negatively impact it, releasing NTs from the chemical compounds that cause negative feelings/thoughts. Hence why many people don't eat onions/garlic today. It dates back to Italy when they too, believed garlic had powerful properties to ward off things and even Queen Elizabeth didn't consume garlic in any of her food!
1. Lemon-mint Spicy Pad-Thai
2. A variation of the Shanghai noodles with Seitan instead of Mushrooms (I h8 mushrooms, and seitan is a DELICIOUS protein substitute)
3. Vegan chocolate cake!
Caught up with a friend from undergrad after months and it was so amazing to share this with her! Surprisingly I also ran into 2-3 more friends from mandir :). #vegan#vegetarianhaven#veganhaven#veganrestaurant#restaurantfeature#delicious#vegandinner#veganfriendly#veganism#vegantoronto#veganasianfood
