A Different Kind Of Spice!

eSutras Organics features lots of amazing products, but we also have rare spices most stores seldom carry. These spices are used in different parts of the world since ancient times. Some of these spices have medicinal qualities, some are great at enriching flavors you’re already used to, and some are flavors you’ve never tasted before. Try something new with anyone of these amazing flavors! eSutras Organics Stone Flower - Stone Flower or better known as Dagad Phool in India is a soft, brown and black colored lichen.

Vegan Lasagna

Today’s recipe is a classic recipe with an organic twist. Lasagna is the best recipe for Monday night. It’s easy to prepare and most recipes call for a large amount to be made, that way you can fill your family up after a long hard Monday and you can have leftovers for a later day. Lasagna keeps up pretty good when refrigerated. Vegan Lasagna (Serves about 8) 2 tablespoons eSutras Organics Extra Virgin Olive Oil 1 1/2 cups chopped onion 3 tablespoons eSutras garlic granules 4 (14.5 ounce) cans stewed tomatoes 1/3 cup tomato paste 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil 1/2 cup chopped parsley 1 teaspoon eSutras Organics Sea Salt 1 teaspoon eSutras Organics whole black pepper (grind the pepper first!) 1 (16 ounce) package lasagna noodles 2 pounds firm tofu 2 tablespoons minced garlic 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil 1/4 cup chopped parsley 1/2 teaspoon eSutras Organics Sea Salt 3 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained Directions: Make the sauce: In a large

Restaurant Quality at Home!

I would say my biggest eating temptation is eating out at restaurants. I do like to cook at home most of the week, but once or twice a week I get the undeniable urge to eat at a restaurant.

First of all, I’m not sure if what they’re putting into my food is exactly good for me. Not everyone is an organic eater. Another problem that arises is cost. Eating out when you have already budgeted for groceries isn’t the best idea. Today’s recipe is inspired from restaurants. It a delicious Chinese potsticker that you wouldn’t think you’d taste outside of a gourmet Chinese restaurant. Pot Stickers (Serves about 12) Ingredients · 1 lb tofu chicken, shredded · 4 lbs Seitan · 1 tablespoon eSutras Organics ginger · 1 shallot, minced · 1 bunch green onions, chopped · 3 leav
