mung bean roti & living simply

dal ki roti (roti made with cooked yellow mung beans) | conifères & feuillus

And if you worry that not finishing the food on your plate is a slap in the face to all the hungry people everywhere, you are not living in reality.

World hunger will not be solved by finishing the garlic mashed potatoes on your plate. ― Geneen Roth

indian spiced kale roti and kale chickpea patties

Two kale recipes today! Both are kale versions of recipes that I have been making for quite some time now. These ones, though, provide perfect opportunity to use up any extra kale that I may have lying around in the fridge (if you saw my last post, then you can imagine that I had some!), as well as, to sneak a bit more kale into my children’s diet. kale | conifères & feuillus Continue reading “indian spiced kale roti and kale chickpea patties”
