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
My dads Gujarati thali with the traditional flavour of rotla, beingan bharta (eggplant), yogurt, gourd/ghee (jaggery & ghee) for a sweet taste, sev-usal (tomatoes & thick sev) and finally my favourite - chaas! I made the chaas (buttermilk) this time myself with yogurt, mint, cilantro, salt, black salt, chaat masala, jeera (cumin).
Here's a quick study snack if you've got a spicy tooth like me!
It's legit just Indian dry daal, tomatoes, cucumbers, lemon, salt, black salt, and chilli powder (paprika). Bon appétit and goodluck for your finals!!! •• I'm sorry for all these posts I'm spamming you with, I really just need to get rid of all these photos I've been waiting to post for the last 3 months. •• #vegetarian#quicksnack#daal#indiansnack#spicyfood#vegetarianfood#veggiesnack
