It’s Veganuary! Whether you’re a year-round vegan or just looking to cut down on animal products, January is the perfect time to explore all the delicious veggie recipes out there. To help you get started, I’ve rounded up some of my favourite vegan dishes from the website — I come back to these again and again for nourishing and flavourful meals fit for any occasion! Note: Some of these recipes call for ghee — a very important Ayurvedic ingredient — but you can easily substitute your favourite oil or, when it comes to serving, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.

Jasmine’s Spooky Pumpkin Latte for Halloween

It’s spooky season! It looks like we’ll be staying largely indoors this Halloween, so pumpkin carving will be extra de rigueur this year. I hope you’ll get creative with yours, because the possibilities are endless. One problem with this festive activity though is that it can generate quite a bit of food waste — but I never met a problem I couldn’t fix!!!

In the past few years, pumpkin lattes have been as synonymous with autumn as the crunch of fallen leaves and the smell of bonfires. That said, the kind you buy from mainstream coffee shops are full of sugar, additives and of course lots of caffeine. If you’re looking for a gentler alternative to this tasty treat, may I suggest this delicious recipe created one October at my Ayurvedic pop-up café East by West to warm the bellies of customers when they came in from the cold?

This is a feel-good recipe that’s warming, lightly spiced and the ultimate comfort “food.” Plus it’s super easy to make and will save you money and plastic waste (and indeed any waste!) from disposable cups. Pumpkins are squashes and come in all shapes and sizes — if you know you’re not going to eat a whole pumpkin’s worth in time then go for a butternut squash and make an interesting Jack O’ Lantern!
