For The Love Of Ghee

IMG_9440

I craved something sugary but not cane sugar sweet.  I had an idea, maybe something with a little more depth – a sweet treat with coconut sugar.  Already my mind was swirling and I began tampering about in my kitchen experimenting.  I thought to myself, “Well, if I was to use coconut sugar I might as well make it gluten free AND add ghee as its base.”  A few days later I came up with this recipe.  This revelation happened months ago and I have since, made it umpteen times and it’s practically begged to be showed off.

Juicy Date and Brown Rice Crispy’s

 

IMG_2579

I was wondering if I could entice you with this recipe for juicy mejdool dates, slowly melted in ghee until thick and syrupy. I toss in some brown rice crispies, dried coconut and a bunch of chopped almonds resulting in a slightly gooey, moist, ghee-ey, crunchy and not overly sweet treat.

My date bars will hit every level of any sweet craving you may have and guess what? It’s not too bad for you. With no refined sugars or flours and made with just a few natural ingredients you will be laughing your way into Valentines day!

Quinoa Ladoos – a Healthy Treat!

“Quinoa Ladoo! You can’t be serious!” I’m asked in disbelief as I serve the little brown malty balls of delight with an afternoon cup of chaa. Yes, my friends, you heard that right, Quinoa!

Let me tell you a little story…

A couple of months ago I stared wide-eyed in disbelief at a recipe before me. I was excited at first, then immediately I slumped back into my seat and thought to myself, “Really?!”

Okay, I am exaggerating just a little… but if you’ve donned the gluten free hat, you know what I mean.  “What if… what if it was another gluten free disaster like so many before?”  Although the question loomed before me, Continue reading

“What Is Ghee?”

“What is Ghee?” and “Is it bad for you?” Two questions I’m asked, over and over and over again.

I love talking about ghee and it makes me happy.  So…

“FOR THE LOVE OF GHEE!”

I’m finally able to share with you what I know about it.  Without further adieu, I introduce to you, my GHEE FACTS page.

Turmeric and Cumin Spiced Potatoes

IMG_1052

The potato craving usually hits hard in the winter when I need some good ol’ comfort food that will stick to my ribs and satisfy my need for warmth… if only for a while. These potatoes, spiced with turmeric and green chilis does just that.

I would have to agree, sweet potato is the healthier option as it contains a tonne of good stuff, especially vitamins A and C.  I cook with these naturally sugary potatoes often, but for this recipe only a good old fashioned potato will do.  I occasionally cook potatoes much to my husband’s dismay, as he loves them in his curry.  Every now and then I make a potato dish I call ‘batata fry‘.
