I do try to avoid meat as often as I can! Scrolling down the hole of the internet a couple of months ago, I was hoping to find a good - and not too complicated veggie burger. Most of the recipes were made with too many ingredients and/or the things I don't like/can't digest. Then it came to my mind, that my friend Nevena of Hleb i Lale blog makes a bunch of amazing veggie things and BAM I found the best ever veggie recipe burger on the planet there. Give it a go, I make it once a week!
Just like Bruce-Lee, the famous Martial arts expert & Actor, this Brocco-Lee is fierce & strong! Here's my recipe for Broccoli Tikkis / Patties that are easy to make and nutritious... These can be had as a tea time snack with mint chutney or added to veggie burgers. Enjoy!
This is a recipe known only to people from my small community in the state of Maharashtra in India. Such recipes, using coconut and mangoes are specific to the western coastal belt of India, especially Maharashtra because of the abundance of these fruits. During Spring, raw mangoes start appearing in the markets and a countless dishes are made from these tangy treats. One of these is a salad prepared using fresh coconut, raw mango and raw chickpeas soaked in water to soften them. All of this is ground together with chillies and tempered with spices. Garnished with salt, sugar and fresh coriander, this is a unique and unknown savoury salad which I can eat in bucketfuls!
Tangy , full of crunch , protein and texture, this salad is a much loved recipe at my house. I loved illustrating this recipe digitally. The borders feature Indian designs called Rangoli/kolam that are decorative drawings done in rice flour or colored powder to adorn the entrances of homes. When done in rice flour, these designs become food for little creatures like ants.
This Chickpea Meringue recipe is perfect when you don´t have much stuff at home but need to make yourself a treat. Eat it as it is or have it on ice cream. If you have some fruits home, you can turn this easy meringue as an beautiful pavlova. Don´t forget to make a sallad on the chickpeas after using the broth!
Beets are truly magnificent. Not only can they grow in pretty much any climate, they are a chameleon in how they enmesh themselves into savoury and sweet recipes with equal aplomb. Oh! And they make wicked good tie dye, as their jewel toned stain is so deeply hued it is otherworldly in its vividness. So this beet hummus is freaking delish, AND it's good for you AND it will sustain you throughout the day. On crackers or toasted pita with veggies for lunch, snack or whatever, it fills you right up and gives you tonneau of plant based energy to burn. Can we also mention their earthy, sweet, mineral flavour profile? Beets, beets, magical beets✨
I knew I wanted to draw desserts with beans, and upon doing some research, I found that different countries around Asia have their own versions of shaved ice and sweet beans. I wanted to highlight this fact in my illustration, so I made sure to include other ingredients that are particular to each country's interpretation of the dessert. I personally love having lots of beans in my halo-halo!

Few bean dishes have more regional variations than hummus, a Middle Eastern/Mediterranean dip made from chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans). It can be silky-smooth or chunky or whole-bean; spicy or nutty or herbed; topped with za'atar or paprika or pine nuts or olives or parsley. No matter whether Egyptian or Syrian, Lebanese or Israeli, Turkish or Greek, it's guaranteed to be delicious! (Who doesn't love earthy chickpeas and buttery tahini drizzled with olive oil?)
So grab a piece of pita bread or some fresh veggies, and start dipping!
