Spaghetti with Pesto and Green Beans | A Classic Ligurian Pasta

I’m biased towards winter vegetables like cauliflower and broccoli, so when the hot Indian summer comes around it can be a struggle for me. Most of the seasonal vegetables available (especially in Calcutta) are ones I have never heard of, let alone know how to cook. The Eastern region of India has its own set of leaves and vegetables, most of which are foreign to me. … Continue reading Spaghetti with Pesto and Green Beans | A Classic Ligurian Pasta

Whole Wheat Biscotti | Whole Grain & No Butter

I was caught up with some not-so-great things last week and couldn’t get on my computer to write, but I’ve been excited about sharing this recipe for a while now. I’ve tried to make biscotti many, many times –  no matter if it was all-purpose flour or whole wheat, with apricots, pistachios, chocolate, almonds, everything – and failed pretty much every time. I finally got … Continue reading Whole Wheat Biscotti | Whole Grain & No Butter

Bruschetta 3 Ways | Vegan Party Snack

After dinner with friends a few weeks ago, we walked out of the restaurant with a day-old baguette that the management kindly gave us as a little take-home gift. It still tasted perfectly fresh so I decided to make bruschetta 3 ways for the family (and was left over with more bread for a little fondue on Sunday night!). This recipe is perfect for a … Continue reading Bruschetta 3 Ways | Vegan Party Snack

Chickpea Crepes with Italian Vegetables

For part two in my chickpea flour series, I came up with what I think is my most innovative recipe: chickpea crepes with Italian vegetables. Like I mentioned in my previous post about protein-rich falafels, in India, there’s nothing new about chickpea/gram flour, commonly known as besan or chana atta. Chillas (Indian crepes made with chickpea flour) make a healthy breakfast or snack because they’re packed with … Continue reading Chickpea Crepes with Italian Vegetables

More Healthy Pasta: Spaghetti with Spinach and Seared Garlic

Pasta doesn’t have to be just carbs and unhealthy fats. I wrote a whole lot about what to add and what not to include to make your everyday indulgence healthier, more filling, and overall good-for-you. Continuing with the theme, this whole wheat spaghetti with spinach and seared garlic is probably the best way to eat spinach. It’s ready in less than 20 minutes from start … Continue reading More Healthy Pasta: Spaghetti with Spinach and Seared Garlic
