Oh hello, here is another curry recipe! My love for curry recipes especially dahl is never-ending especially during autumn and winter when our body thrives on the nourishing, grounding and healing spices. Mung bean, like any other legume is high in plant based protein, complex carbohydrates and fibre amongst micronutrients like folate. Throw these nourishing ingredients in a pot and let it simmer away for the hour and voila, a nutrient-dense, hearty meal is ready with plenty of leftovers for future meals.
Ahhh, the good ol’ soy debate. Is it really that bad for you? Absolutely not. The issue and most of the misunderstanding when it comes to soy is that a majority of it is genetically modified. The other issue is the confusion behind the presence of isoflavones aka phytoestrogens which people assume imitate oestrogen effects.
I had the privilege of finding the most stunning heirloom pumpkin and squash at the farmer’s markets on the weekend. Usually I would roast pumpkin in bulk and have it with my lunch or dinners but I decided to create something a little different this time. My curry obsession continues so I decided to stuff these little heirloom pumpkins. I absolutely recommend this dish!
As Autumn is finally here and the days are getting cooler, we naturally crave warming foods. This is ideal from the traditional chinese medicine (TCM) and ayurvedic point of views when it comes to eating warming/hot foods during the cooler months to maintain a healthy digestion and a balance in wellbeing. Gone are the raw vegetables,cold salads, smoothie bowls and nicecream and out comes the spices (think turmeric, cinnamon, cardamon, nutmeg, chilli, pepper, cumin and cloves), root vegetables and hot teas.
