Sweet Corn Soup

Sweet corn soup, a nice porridge kind of filling meal with with some pan seared chicken sausages and bread  for those cosy fall night suppers. You may add the seared, sliced sausage into the soup while cooking it but I just like to eat it separately.

Basil seeds Limeade

Basil seeds in limeade is a special drink that has become street favorite these days in Kerala. Now whats the big deal about limeade .. everyone knows  to make it right! Well the lime/Indian lemon oil from the peel that mingles with the drink,simple syrup not plain sugar and the bartender style shaking alone gives it much desired taste. Basil seeds have a hint of basil taste but the main purpose of adding it is to cool the body. If you are new to basil seeds then it is just like chia seeds, it blooms when soaked.

Salmon and Potato Salad

Salmon and Potato Salad served with New England special hotdog buns, some juicy colorful heirloom tomatoes and french fries. 

East Coast summers are really short but scorching hot I am not complaining cos we just finished our quota of long freezing winter... so we are on a salad and seafood diet for the time being.

Beet and Oats Vegan Burger

Beetroot and oats pairs quite well and gives such a lovely taste I am sure you won't miss meat at all when you have the burger. I have gone with the Mexican flavors here with taco seasoning, coriander tomato salsa and buttery avocado  so u wont look around for mustard or ketchup. 

Plant based burgers need not be boring at all !
