It’s something that had been haunting me for awhile now, but try as I might, I couldn’t let go.

Cauliflower, sexy when smashed
Cauliflower puree. How much more frumpy can one get? But tell you what, dressed and dolled up this way, it’s a pretty good substitute for potato mash, and healthier to boot.
Here’s some good stuff for the weekend, if you’re fond of eating: Continue reading →

THE ‘YOU-CAN’T-BEET-THIS’ SALAD
Enough of the butter, bacon and beer. It’s time for another B, a healthier one, to end 2015 with. Without any fanfare, presenting to you…the honest, humble beet!

Get yourself a couple of packets of regular button mushrooms, nothing fancy-schamcy. Halve/quarter/dice them and keep aside. (Us Indians need to take care to wash them under running water before we cut them, please!)
Now get some garlic. Correction, a serious lot of it. Don’t be scared, it’s good for you, ask any Italian or health site. Peel and chop it, very fine. Continue reading →
