Ok, so lately I have been addicted to Vegan cookbooks and busy trying out every recipe in the book and adjusting it according to my taste buds and preferences.
I was at the local library last week and had ordered Chloe Coscarelli's Vegan cook books, As soon as I got them, I jotted down all the recipes I wanted to try, if you follow me on Instagram @mrsparijain, you probably know about my obsession with Chef Chloe!
I had made Cranberry barley bliss recipe from her cookbook and my family loved it back to back for two days, once as a baked casserole with cashew cream sauce and second has a filling in a burrito with some authentic chimichurri sauce!
The sauce turned out soooo good that I had to put it up on my blog!! It's a MUST HAVE staple in my house for that spicy kick to just about anything!
You all know I post easy peasy recipes that could be whipped in minutes, coz that's exactly my style of cooking on busy weekdays.
Ingredients required for ChimiChurri Sauce
Just add everything to the blender &...... voilaaaa, the most amazing spread ever!! Whooop!!
Easy Peasy! Told ya!
While everyone is watching( like 1 billion people worldwide!! Yeah!) INDIA-Pakistan cricket match, I am heading to a relaxing foaming Epsom salt bubble bath that is waiting for me!!
Hope you enjoyed my post & will give that CHIMICHURRI a try!
Heyyyy!! It's Fridayy!!
Actually, I wanted to add more exclamation marks because that's how I am feeling right now!
You know when it rains and you can hear the droplets while you have spa music in the background and warm milk with condiments on the stove that is making the home smell aromatic!
Well, just taking a quick moment out of my rainy day to share a super simple all vegan ofcourse 'Golden Elixir' !
Everything is to be brought to a boil and simmered for a while in a saucepan!
Just looking at all the spices and flavors come together is therapeutic to me!
Pour it in to favorite mug and cherish the fact that you have made time for yourself and your body totally deserves all the love & nourishment!!
Meanwhile if you'd like, you can stay in touch with me & see my daily musings on my [email protected]

Hope you all enjoy it as much as my family did.

Today was an exceptionally productive day! I got a LOT done, considering it's pouring non-stop (Cali needs some! Thank the heavens!) but ALL I really want to do is hide under that plush blanket I got the other day from Costco! Speaking of Costco, I took a while for me to master the maze like aisles and find all the amazing goodies they have on their shelves, Like this amazing high tech globe I found for my 6 yr old son! And the Cuisinart programmable cooker, I am debating between the Instant pot on amazon and Cuisinart for my kitchen, Let me know if you own any of them! I also bought a dozen of seasonal sweet potatoes to make some recipes for the winter and get over the occasional winter blah...one step at a time!(Winter blah ..errr..beauty..post next up!)
I am always up for modifying and taking all my previous amateur recipe trials by experimenting with seasonal vegetables! This time it was sweet potatoes or yam however you would like to call it! It's fairly easy and ohh so delicious! You will never want to have the store bought version again! I promise you!
Blend all of the above, My beloved Ninja blender made sure it's just perrrrfect! You can choose to add cayenne pepper, I totally forgot, so make sure to add a lil pinch & it will definitely make things a lil spicier!
This variation of hummus is one of my favorite versions and I hope you will give it a thumbs up too!
Next up should be my winter beauty must have's!
I am obsessing over so many amazing products and I can't wait to share it with you allll!!!
So, I have so many vegan recipes to share that I been experimenting lately,(check out my IG @Glamlocal to see what I am upto lately!),Finally on this cozy night, I am sitting down to
to write this blogpost!
As the winter arrives and temperature starts to cool,I can only think of warm and comforting things to cook and soothe my soul and body.
So,today I am sharing my Vegan Carrot Cream Soup rich in vitamins which requires minimal ingredients.
For this recipe, prepping a day before would save you time.
I am all about simple & wholesome vegan cooking. Could be enjoyed with a slice of toasted bread or make it a bread bowl.
Please hashtag #glamlocal if you try it, Its a wonderful feeling to see someone somewhere enjoying a recipe they liked!
Until next time,
Simply split your banana into 2 halves, layer the ice cream, pour the chocolate sauce & garnish with rest of the ingredients over it especially the pomegranate seeds add such an amazing taste to the entire dish.
I really hope you enjoy this vegan banana split with your family and friends this Fall.
So, off I go into my stress free zone aka my bed on this cold fall night
Wishing you best of health!

So here's my first post, I am really excited to share an amazing super fruit that I have been including in my diet for a couple months now,
TADAAAAA... Goji Berries! Yes these are amazing antioxidant rich little chewy resin like berries which have more Vitamin C than Pomegranates and Oranges combined! Almost at 250% of Vit C per serving, They are raw, vegan excellent for those who are diet specific.
Dating back in history, it was grown in the Himalayas and used by Chinese practitioners in various medicines. Monks from Tibet believed that it is associated with longevity of life.
Also it is interesting to note that apart from its incredible nutritional value it is also has highest ratings on ORAC scale (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) which measures their antioxidant activity .
They belong to the botanical family of Solanaceae (which Btw I learnt in High school as I am science Grad and botany was one of my main subjects).
So all said and done I urge to try these, I have been popping these as I battle stuffy nose and cold like symptoms right this minute. I also love to sprinkle them over greek yogurt and along with other berries and chia seeds. My Son as become a lover of Goji berries like me!
You can find them at health food stores, I bought mine online at Soap.com. It's best to buy in bulk as the cost comes down. Hoping you guys are going to try it and let me know if you did!
Have a great day!
