What is for lunch? This question is one of the constants of life that can either be answered with mundane tiffin boxes or with exciting lettuce wraps. If you use these nutrient and fibre-rich green leaves, you may never go back to bread made of maida. Some of the best lettuce wrap ideas are Mexican quinoa salad cups, curried tofu wraps, honey sriracha tempeh spring rolls, Thai sweet potato and cauliflower lettuce wraps, avocado chickpea salad wraps, Thai basil chicken lettuce cups, and Hoisin chicken cabbage tacos.
Pasta is one of those simple dishes that can please with subtle and strong flavours. They are also easy to make and you can incorporate condiments from any cuisine you like. Some such light dishes are Green Goddess Pasta Salad, Creamy Lemon Pasta, Creamy Vegan Pasta With Tomatoes and Basil, Rigatoni With Brussels Sprouts & Kale Pesto, Spaghetti alla Nerano, Spaghetti With Garlicky Shrimp, Asparagus, & Tomatoes, One-Pot Pasta Primavera With Summer Veggies & Ricotta, and Lemony Pasta Carbonara With Peas & Zucchini.
No-bake desserts are known for being easy and quick to prepare. But they can also be healthy and nutrient-rich. To make a guilt-free chocolate fudge, you need six pitted dates, 1/4 cup of almond milk (or any other vegan milk), one scoop of collagen powder, 1/4 cup of almond butter, and 1/4 cup of cocoa powder. Cook the dates and milk in a saucepan until it becomes a paste and add the rest of the ingredients. Now freeze them overnight or at least four hours. Choose a dish as per how you want the fudge to look.
Experimenting with various ingredients and cooking styles has never been so easy because there is no recipe you cannot find on the internet. Food bloggers do not hesitate to be quirky or to find the most traditional versions. Some of the best blogs to check out are Love and Lemons, Cookie and Kate, Minimalist Baker, Smitten Kitchen, Budget Bytes, Closet Cooking, Damn Delicious, Green Kitchen Stories, Serious Eats, Sprouted Kitchen, Two Peas & Their Pod, Pinch of Yum, Vegan Richa, and Recipe Girl.
Did you know that your cookware is as important as the ingredients you choose? Traditional kadais, pots, pans, and grilling equipment are designed to withstand higher temperature without affecting the quality of the food. Many modern pans are known to have toxic coating that can mix in the food and slowly affect your immune system and gut health. Some non-toxic Indian cookware brands are P-Tal, The Indus Valley, Green Heirloom, Ikai Asai, Ancient Madurai, Essential Traditions by Kayal, Zishta, and Anand Cookware.
