Finally a year of gardening to put in the books! My tomato harvest has not let up since July and this is one way I have made good use of them. This was born from the necessity for low impact cooking- I did not want to deal with splatters, the time it normally takes to cook tomatoes down before even making your sauce, or standing and stirring often. Here you pretty much toss ingredients on a sheet pan and then into a blender. Use this marinara for your favorite pasta, spread on a pizza or use to swirl your chickpeas in.roasted tomatoes
The kitchen is the heart of our dwelling spaces and our yoga practices can take root in the very preparation of a meal. The following offerings of recipes are from my heart to yours and I hope you enjoy them in the best of health.
It has been my aim to create recipes inspired by seasonal foods with omission of dairy, meat, eggs and refined sweeteners. This is not based on a judgement of those ingredients, but simply a reflection of my personal interests and abilities.
Cooking has always been a part of my life and was my first exposure to the heart of yoga. The kitchen was a gathering place and a space to be nourished. My Italian mother and grandparents extensively gardened and delighted in the process of taking something from it’s purist form and shifting it to bring out it’s best qualities was a daily ritual.
I offer my deepest gratitude to my family for exposing me to the passion and integrity of whole foods cooking in this collection of recipes. As my Mom would say, Mangia!
