Whether you’re transitioning to vegetarianism or veganism for health, religious, or animal welfare & environmental reasons, the bridge can be shorter if you remember one thing. It’s all in the spices. Eating only plant-based food can be boring and a successful transition may be made easier by keeping plenty of spices on hand. The Indian culture has figured this out. Cumin, coriander, cardamom, mustard, mango powder, ginger, asafetida, fenugreek and chilies. Don’t forget turmeric, tamarind, saffron, curry leaf, coconut milk. If you like nuts use almonds, cashews and pistachios. That’s just the beginning.

What could be more boring than green beans & potatoes? Green_beans Well this recipe puts a new exotic spin on two vegetables we used to hide from in school cafeteria.
