A Growing Gallery of Vegie-Lovers’ Food

It was in the Christmas season of 2012 when my husband and I decided to shift from an omnivorous diet to a vegetarian diet. This decision was mostly influenced by my research on Yoga and my involvement in yoga asanas during that time. The timing couldn’t be worse! The festive season meant get-together with friends and family, all of them serving meat and seafood based dishes on the table. The hardest part of the transition was keeping your social circle active, sitting down with them over dinner, and not eating what they have prepared for you!

Shifting to vegetarian diet also meant spending more time cooking at home than eating out given the very few restaurants and food chains available serving vegetarian dishes. More than four years later, we are still on it! Here I have posted some of the food I cook to serve our family. This is a growing list as I learn more dishes (and have time to take a shot).
