[RECIPE] Cooking with Daikon Radish

Daikon Radish is an extremely versatile and healthy vegetable. It is very easy to grow and provides many benefits to the garden. In this video, we show you how you can use all parts of the Daikon Radish for cooking, and show you two recipes that are easy to make.

[RECIPE] Indian Spiced Cauliflower (Gobi)

Cauliflower is a favorite vegetable of most Punjabi families such as ours. It’s usually readily available at the farmer’s market, and is very easy to cook. Traditionally, cauliflower is cooked with potatoes, but as we are trying to cut down on starchy, less nutrient dense foods, we chose to make this dish with just the cauliflower. The flavor of this dish is mild (at least for us), and very easy to digest.  It also cooks quite quickly, and doesn’t involve much prep, so its a go-to-dish in the winter when we need something quick.   (more…)

[RECIPE] South Indian Spiced Fried Rice

Winter is a time of grounding vegetables that warm the heart and please the tongue. As the sun reaches further and further down towards the horizon, plants cling to the Earth for warm and nourishment. Winter vegetables such as carrots, beets, radishes, celery, and cauliflower (when grown right) have a rich, earthy flavor and strong aroma. This dish highlights those grounding vegetable flavors, and uses heating and healing herbs to keep the body fit for winter. It’s also easy to make and can use up some of the vegetables that have been sitting in the fridge or the garden too long. We hope you enjoy it! (more…)

[RECIPE] Mung Bean Daal

In the winter months, it is important to eat warming, hearty foods that keep us strong and healthy when the weather is coldest. In India, daal is a staple dish during these months. It has a heating tendency on the body, is easy to digest, and is full of protein to keep the gardener working in difficult weather. Daal is extremely easy to make. Most Indian families will eat daal every night, along with rice and a vegetable dish. We hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do. It has kept our family warm for many centuries.


[RECIPE] Baingan Bharta (Roasted Eggplant Curry)

Nothing says summer like eggplant and tomatoes, and nothing says wonderfully flavorful Indian food like this recipe. Baingan Bharta is a very common dish in India during the warm seasons.  It has a smooth, creamy texture, and tastes somewhat like a Middle Eastern Bhabaganoush with much more flavor.  At our home, baingan bharta is definitely a go-to dish in the summer season because it is just so delicious and fantastically easy to make.  If you’ve ever had this dish at an Indian restaurant, making it at home with homegrown, organic vegetables (or from a farmer’s market) really takes it to a different level. You’ll want to eat this one night after night. Don’t forget to make extra to share with neighbors and friends too!
