Turmeric Chai

Turmeric is a natural anti inflammatory that can alleviate muscle and joint pain as well as headaches and allergy symptoms. My friend gifted me a box of Numi Organic Golden Chai. I simply followed the directions on the box and of course added cinnamon and honey! (I’m the vegan that uses honey). Honey also alleviates seasonal allergies and cinnamon is a natural antiviral/antibacterial agent.

  • Numi Organic Golden Chai, 1 heaping teaspoon
  • 8oz unsweetened almond milk
  • 1-2tbs honey
  • Dash of cinnamon

Combine all ingredients into sauce pan and heat on low until warm. Enjoy!

Vegan Hatch Chili Rice

Nothing gives a vegan a nice full belly better than rice!  Here’s a super easy recipe that’s sure to spice up the kitchen.  It’s Hatch chili season and Texas, and here’s one (of many) recipes I’ve spiced up!

1 cup brown jasmine rice

4 cups organic vegetable broth

2 small sliced carrots (I used one orange and one purple)

1/2 sliced union

1 clove of garlic

1/4 cup roasted hatch chilis (if you don’t have hatch chilis, you can use a can of green chilis)

A dash of turmeric (if desired)

Place all ingredients into sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Lower heat and simmer covered until all liquid is absorbed.  Cool and serve.
