Violet or nasturtium in a salad or dessert doesn't surprise any more. Russians cook dandelion salads. Would you try it? Do you know that dandelions contain more vitamin A than carrots? It's true! They are also rich in vitamins B1, B2, B3, C, E, K and others. Dandelions contain boron, iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc and phosphorus. The plant tastes a little bitter, but this bitterness stimulates digestion. In addition, dandelions are full of antioxidants. In Russia, dandelions are usually considered a weed and, when they appear in late spring - early summer, Russians, and those who have dachas especially, begin to struggle with them. Their fears can be understood: Scientists say that one dandelion can produce up to 1,500 seeds. Those who do not kill dandelions, joke that they will make a salad of them.

I GREW up in a country where the food culture revolves heavily around meat, and choosing a vegetarian or vegan diet is almost unheard off, unless for religious or cultural reasons. A voluntary decision to change the way you perceive food, is met with responses ranging from disbelief to an annoyingly coercive pep talk to snap you out of your "fad diet".

In those days someone choosing animal welfare and a meat-free diet was met with bewilderment. Mostly she was offered chicken or seafood as an alternative, perhaps on the assumption it was red meat she had a problem with due to heath issues. The complete lack of empathy, she told me, left her seething. Though things are changing slowly back home, back then most affluent families always had meat, and very rarely was vegetarianism, let alone veganism, catered for. I was fortunate to have a mother who did … [Read more...] about Sumayya Usmani’s culinary journey: converting Pakistani cuisine for vegetarians and vegans
Rana’s Lebanese Chickpea & Pomegranate Stew For me, comfort food doesn’t manifest itself as plates heaving under the weight of carbs and oozy cheesy layers. In fact, despite the cold, I still crave lighter food but I want that food to deliver layers of texture and bright flavours. This simple aromatic stew of plump chickpeas, warming spices and voluptuous pomegranate molasses topped with garlic and tahini yoghurt, fresh dill, toasted pine kernels and juicy pomegranate arils delivers just that. It’s super nutritious too.
