Mung Dal Buckwheat Kitchari

This simple, nourishing recipe is a different take on an old classic. We made it in our pressure cooker, however you can easily make it on a stove top. Despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat. It’s a gluten-free starchy seed that is used like a grain. According to Ayurveda, buckwheat can be enjoyed by each dosha, however, its light, nourishing qualities make it especially good for kapha dosha. This recipe serves 2 people. Be sure to add any additions desired, and remember – kitchari is supposed to be porridge-like in consistency, however you can add less water if you would like it to be thicker.

Gluten-Free Flaxseed Muffins with Buttermilk, Ghee and Spices

These muffins are tender, aromatic, healthy and delicious! They’re great with hot chai tea or coffee, fresh, seasonal fruit, yogurt, nut butters and additional ghee for spreading. The recipe makes 12-15 muffins. If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, blend 1/2 cup yogurt with 1/2 cup water to use as a substitute, or add 1 tbsp lemon juice to a measuring cup. Pour in some milk to equal 1 cup. Let it sit for 5 minutes before adding to the recipe.

Kick-Spiced Mini Turkey Muffins

These little meat muffins make a great snack or meal if you’re watching your carbs. Kick Ketchup can be mixed in equal proportions with regular organic ketchup or tomato paste to reduce spiciness. We used dark turkey, however, if using breast meat, adding 1/2 Tbsp olive or almond oil to the recipe makes for a juicier result. For standard muffin tins, the yield is roughly 10-12 depending on optional ingredients added. These freeze well.
