One of my favorite blogs to come across lately has been Holy Cow! Vaishali shares recipes and stories about traditional Indian food, her committment to animals, and how she melds these two aspects of her life together to create unforgettable meals. I jumped right in of course, and can't wait to try more recipes.
For dessert, I made Vegan Almond Kheer (rice pudding). I don't know where to start about this dish! It was so wonderful and certainly rivals the dairy-based version. The vanilla extract makes all the difference in the recipe. Golden raisins and almonds toasted with cardamom top the pudding. The result is a fragrant, perfectly sweet dessert, that while feeling like comfort food, is relatively healthy.
Onward and upward! I usually use leftover coconut milk from dinner recipes to blend up delicious fruit smoothies, so I know a great vegan mango lassi is well within reach. Check out Vaishali's blog and enjoy her stories and recipes!
