d-k-che’ in imperial beach

You know how sometimes you find yourself in a neighborhood that doesn’t have a lot of veggie options, so you start thinking, “how bad is a little lard in my beans, really?”, or, “just one donut isn’t going to kill me…”? Well, Imperial Beach in south San Diego can be that place. So I’d likeContinue reading “d-k-che’ in imperial beach”

gluten free chia-flax-rice roti

While in India, every time I had a wheat based dish I’d start thinking about how when I got back to San Diego that I’d make a gluten free version of whatever I was eating. I had all kinds of ideas. I still do, so stay tuned for veggie voyager versions of all kinds ofContinue reading “gluten free chia-flax-rice roti”

vegan pesto with pepitas

I have to say, San Diego is full of hidden gems. It’s good to be home for a while. This past weekend, as Ryan was finishing out the 10 day master cleanse, my mom and I found ourselves poking around in the corridors of a restaurant supply store, shopping for rice noodles and fresh coconutContinue reading “vegan pesto with pepitas”

chai tea (indian style)

This recipe is very simple. I learned it while taking a cooking class in Udaipur and it was warming, simple and super tasty. delhi street chai…yum I drank a lot of chai in India. Due to Ryan’s aversion to caffeine, each time we were served chai I’d end up drinking mine and then his as well.Continue reading “chai tea (indian style)”

almond, chocolate & cherry biscotti

I’m back! 6 weeks traveling through Turkey and India: eating, drinking and breathing in as many sights, sounds, foods and flavors as possible. Although I didn’t post as much as I would have liked to while on the road, I have a backlog of notes, photos and recipes to share…in due time. My brain isContinue reading “almond, chocolate & cherry biscotti”

camel safari masala

  We recently finished a three day, two nights “camel safari” out of the desert city of Bikaner, in Rajasthan, India. Our party consisted of myself, Ryan, two camel men (Sankar and Aridam), and two camels (Kwalu and Moni). There was one camel for pulling a cart of supplies, one camel for riding. Our playgroundContinue reading “camel safari masala”

achchha lagta hai!

Means “It’s very tasty” in Hindi…or something to that effect. Forgive me for possibly butchering both spelling and meaning but it is what I’ve been taught to say since arriving…and I use this phrase about 10 times a day. Am I in heaven? Writing about the joys of veggie-voyaging in India is like shooting fishContinue reading “achchha lagta hai!”

V-10 Juice: Hangover Helper?

I’d like to apologize for not being a super blogger lately. Although off to a good start, with no plans of slowing down, it is difficult for me in these last days of preparing for my next veggie voyage to cook, take notes, photograph food, etc. Or even to find time to write about myContinue reading “V-10 Juice: Hangover Helper?”

Inspired by Pad Thai

I love a good pad thai…but it’s something I’ve never made at home until a few days ago. I had the noodles, but not the usual gamut of veggies that you see in pad thai: bean sprouts, bok choi, peanuts. Nor did I have eggs or the requisite tamarind paste. I did, however, possess redContinue reading “Inspired by Pad Thai”

Thai Iced Tea with Coconut Milk

This is a quick and easy recipe and I just want to share. If you can find this tea, then you can make Thai Iced Tea exactly like you would get in a restaurant, only vegan, and so much better (if you ask me). I have seen the Thai-tea product at the Asian and IndianContinue reading “Thai Iced Tea with Coconut Milk”
