Begin the flavor journey with the recipe for Spicy Curry Bowl with Tofu. “This curry noodle bowl is the perfect balance of spicy warmth, sleep-inducing carbs and rich umami flavor – all of which are so necessary on cold winter days.”
Shruti writes, “Carrot halwa is one of my favorite Indian sweets, and is perfect for fall/winter weather. It’s nothing but warm and comforting. Making vegan versions of traditional Indian sweets is one of my favorite cooking pursuits because, while challenging, it almost always turns out to be delicious – this carrot halwa is a testament to that.” Get the recipe here: Shru’s Kitchen Carrot Halwa Recipe
