About the Author
From the Publisher
Shakti Rose Cardamom Latte
Shakti is feminine life force. It's the energy that moves through us, making us feel alive, luminous, and vibrant. While Shiva (masculine energy) observes, Shakti creates. She is the process of intention to formulation to expression. Without her, there would be no life. This rose cardamom latte brings all her divine qualities out to dance.
Chai Adaptogenic Bliss Balls
From 2pm to 6pm is Vata time. This is when we may experience that mid-afternoon slump and may be reaching for a sweet treat. Insert chai adaptogenic bliss balls. They'll fill you up with plant-based energy.
Paricara Plant-Based Pho
I live in Los Angeles, where driving by restaurants with names like 9021-Pho, Pho-Shizzle, Pho-King, and Un-Phogettable is the norm. Unfortunately, most restaurant pho is extremly high in sodium, so I don't stop. However, my plant-based version has coconut aminos, no meat products, and all the veggies. Pho-real, I think you'll like it.

Durga is the fierce warrior goddess whose name means 'the invincible one'. After eating this bowl, you may start channelling her. Protein-packed quinoa, hemp seeds, and hummus are balanced by cooling spinach, cucumber, and parsley. Add the endurance-building healthy fats from avocado, cashews, and tahini, and you've got yourself ready for battle.
Sundari Sweet Potato Toast
Move over bread—sweet potatoes are the new plant-based carb of choice! Packed with vitamins and minerals, sweet potato makes the perfect vessel for your favorite sweet and savory toppings. Unlike bread, it keeps your blood sugar levels stable so you won't go reaching for another slice. (I mean, maybe you will, but that's just because it tastes so good.)
A cozy, comfortable weekend morning starts with sweet, satisfying pancakes. Choose from spicy pumpkin for Vata, fluffy coconut flour for Pitta, or warming cinnamon for Kapha.

The book is well written, filled with stunning photography and serves are both a guide to Ayurveda and a cook book beginning with some useful resources including a guide to Ayurveda, a resource to discovering your Dosha which is important as each one - Vata, Pitta or Kapha, tends to tie into how and what you should eat. This is followed by a guide to how to eat the Ayurvedic way and the basics to stocking your kitchen to prepare for the recipes that follow.
The recipe section is divided into 6 district chapters: Breakfast (for your Dosha), Six taste bowls. Tridoshic dinners, snacks and sides; Desserts and potions such as golden milk or green juice. I particularly love the section on the bowls as after a day at work this is an easy way to throw together a dish that is high in nutrients and quick in prep time. I also really like that fact that these serve one, as you can make as few or many as you want following the basic template. The Thai one is amazing with the warm peanut sauce and uses easy to source ingredients. I am excited to try the Tempeh Tikka next as Tikka was one of my favorite dished growing up in the UK but always with chicken, so this way I get to try a vegan version.
Another stand out are the dips - how many vegan books have the same old Guac or plain hummus (which is not exactly "new" ) but this one has Tandoori Cauliflower dip, ginger edamame hummus and avocado tahini dip...excited for these new options. There are also some lovely dished that will lend well to Fall / Winter like a vegan version of Shepherds Pie; the traditional Kitchari which I have made many times but this book offers versions tailored to your Dosha with different additions such as Kale or squash; and some great soups and curries. The desserts also look amazing and different such as Chocolate Bark made with chickpeas and a version of peanut butter cups made with Chai or "Golden Mylk" .
On a great note, there is not a call for crazy, complex indients - so a trip to any grocery store will do. And the recipes are easy to follow, which means I will use them time and time again as the one thing I never have enough of is time and hours in the kitchen is not for me.
In short, this book makes Ayurvedic cooking easy ,simple to follow, delicious and yes, contemporary. The best Ayurvedic book I own!
Fussy recipes drove me away from a plant-based diet, but this one helped bring back all the green (and all the other colors too) goodness. The recipes are simple to make, and most of the ingredients are ones I'm familiar with.
Also, the book is just gorgeous. When I received it, I enjoyed an evening on the couch devouring the stories and pictures. If you're plant-based or even if you just want to find some new ways to love veggies again -- this book is IT!
Having first gotten it -- This book is absolutely stunning. Firm cover, thick but not too thick pages. I'm a fan of a sturdy cookbook cause this thing will get USED. Been reading through the beginning parts and I LOVE how informative yet relatable this book is. Not overwhelming with info either. I feel I can access Ayurvedic information easily through this cookbook and implement it in ways I couldn't before. So happy Sahara put her heart and soul into this - you can tell. Definitely a book I'll use for the rest of my life. Can't wait to implement more of the recipes. I've seen many shared on her IG and they look easy to make, not too complex and best of all - delicious!
