Cauliflower Dahl

I am not sure how missed this soup for the winter season. Cauliflower have a delicate and sometimes bland taste that you need to be precise in the use of spices, oils and herbs. 
I found the richness of the coconut milk very nourishing for the winter months, however coconut being a cooling milk need to be well compensate it with warming spices like ginger.

Bread free Stuffing Balls

These festive bites have all the flavours of traditional stuffing, but they’re protein-packed, bite-sized, and gluten-free, to boot.

You can store the uncooked balls in the fridge (tightly wrapped up on a plate) for up to 36 hours before baking, so there's less fuss the day of a big meal. The uncooked balls can also be frozen in a freezer-safe bag for 1 to 2 weeks. To bake, simply pop the frozen balls on a prepared baking sheet and bake for 30 to 33 minutes (they need roughly 7 to 10 minutes more bake time when baking from frozen). Also, the Cranberry-Pear Sauce can be made 1 to 2 weeks in advance and frozen until ready to use.
Thank you Angela Clipton for your lovely recipe.

Vegan Peppermint Patty Slice

From Oh She glows
This peppermint patty is a showstopping dessert that's coloured naturally with spinach—though only you and I will know its nutritious secret! As an added bonus it’ll only set you back 15 minutes of prep.
The filling calls for at least 4 hours of freezing time, so I like to whip it up before bed to pop in the freezer overnight. This way, all I have to do the next day is add the ganache on top and freeze it for another 10 minutes.

Ashwagandha almond butter

Raw almond butter can be tedious to make but it is worth the patience, especially when you know the health of your adrenals is on the line. Having this adaptogenic version of almond butter on hand is as useful as it is delicious. You can use it as an ingredient in other dishes or add it as a topping on things like toast with honey and cinnamon. You can also use cashews instead of almonds. Soak them overnight.

Evening tonic for Vatta doshas

Ending the day with a tonic is a great evening ritual. While the routine alone creates a calm setting, you can choose to add ingredients to your tonic based on how you feel and how your day and week have been. This tonic has not only adrenal-hugging ashwagandha, but nutmeg which can support sleep and relaxed muscles, and comfort your agitated mind.

Coconut mango tapioca pudding

Summer deserts need to be light and refreshing, here a cooling pudding for all ages. If you don't have mango available, use peaches, straberries or any fresh fruit in season. Consider fruits that alleviate Pitta dosha like pineapple, peaches and pears.
