Kaali daal or khari masoor ki daal is a popular vegetarian / vegan Pakistani lentil recipe made with black gram lentils.

Avocado Mushroom Toast

Fresh mushrooms sautéed in garlic, avocado slices and of course lemon juice and salt come together to make this delicious avocado mushroom toast. Enjoy for breakfast, brunch or even dinner.

Roasted Butternut Squash

Roasted butternut squash is the simplest way to use this hearty winter vegetable. Just cut, toss in spices and bake till tender. Toast the seeds to make for a quick snack.

A simple Pakistani style bhindi ki sabzi made with sliced onions and spices finished off with lemon juice. This vegetarian / vegan recipe can be enjoyed with garma garam chapatti. Bhindi / okra is one of my most favourite vegetables to cook with, and has to be a part of my weekly dinner menu. Once a week for sure, though more than that is just as appreciated. I was so sad to find out that bhindi isn’t common in Australia…
