Mahasri Yoga (www.mahasriyoga.com) is delighted to add three new, diverse recipes including contributions from Kalyani Bapat (chole/chickpeas UP style) and Mary La Croce (cauliflower leek soup leaning toward the French-style). So many readers, from 80 countries, come to the blog and website looking for vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and low-carb recipes.
Artichoke Garlic Cream is an elegant, inexpensive, versatile recipe. Use it as a dip, spread on crostini, or as a pesto with pasta. The recipe has just three ingredients and takes five minutes. It is vegan, gluten-free, and low-carb.
Kalyani’s Chole (chickpeas) takes a little time and effort (40 minutes) and the list of ingredients is filled with aromatic spices. Do not be put off by it because it really is easier that it looks and the results are well worth it. Indian kitchens will be well stocked with these spices. This is not the ubiquitous tomato-based chickpeas dish found everywhere. The recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and low-carb.
Mary’s Cauliflower Leek Soup is a substantial, flavorful, comforting soup. It is easy to make with a short list of ingredients and is gluten-free and vegan.
We have a new book review: Meditations from the Tantras by Swami Satyananda. The book will reveal the depth and diversity of yoga meditations that remain hidden from most yoga practitioners. Swami Satyananda generously shares transcripts from classes he taught.
