Vegan Indian Feast!

First of all, thank you guys so much for your wonderful and supportive comments! My choice to eat or not eat dairy and eggs is still up in the air, but I’m thinking I’m going to slowly add them back into my diet in moderation. Tomorrow I’ll try to get my cholesterol checked and we’ll see what happens!

Last night (Saturday) I was hanging out at my neighbors apartment, and we decided to stay in and cook! (Seriously, that might be my favorite kind of Saturday night!) Since my exposure to Indian food has been quite limited, they decided to expand my horizons!!

There was a variety of foods on our menu, noodles, basmati rice, and a chickpea dish. There was lots of cooking going on in the kitchen, and I just watched the magic happen!

The finished product: Curry noodles w/ mushrooms, Basmati rice, and chickpeas. YUM! Seriously, this was so good. It was really spicy, but I love spicy food, so it was right up my alley 🙂

These guys know how to cook! And of course, no dinner would be complete without a mug of chai tea 🙂

Made with soymilk, of course!

Have you ever made Indian food? All of this was “naturally vegan” (although apparently it’s common to add chicken to the chickpea dish.) I’m hoping the boys will be nice enough to teach me some of their skills! 😉

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Hopefully for my next post, I’ll have my cholesterol results!
