Nourishing Ayurvedic Kitchari [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Vegan

Calories

238

Serves

6

Ingredients

  • 1 cup split yellow mung beans (moong dal)
  • 1 1/2 cups basmati rice
  • 6 cups filtered water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Freshly cracked pepper to taste
  • A pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt
  • Fresh cilantro and lemon or lime juice to serve

Preparation

  1. Rinse the mung beans and rice then add them to a large pot or Dutch oven.
  2. Add the bay leaf, cinnamon, stick, spices, and salt then pour the water in. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to a low simmer and cook the mixture until all of the water has been absorbed (this took me about 25-30 minutes). Make sure to stir often so the bottom doesn’t burn.
  3. Once all of the water has been absorbed, turn off the heat. Serve up your kitchari with a heavy sprinkling of fresh cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice.

It is my personal journey to not only share what I eat as a vegan but to portray the vegan diet as one of inclusion, not exclusion. When I’m not photographing food and developing recipes for Sweet Miscellany, I’m working towards becoming a holistic health coach and yoga instructor and exploring my hometown of Houston, Texas.
