Your Health is Worth More than Gold

Alchemy is an herbal and epicurean apothecary where food can truly be your medicine. You may not know that 90% of the body's serotonin, that "feel good" neurotransmitter, is stored in your lower digestive tract. Through the ancient dietary wisdom of Ayurveda, a 5000 year old sister science to yoga, you can find health and happiness in your kitchen. An ancient Ayurvedic proverb states, "When diet is wrong medicine is of no use. When diet is correct medicine is of no need." Alchemy recognizes that your health is worth more than gold.

Deliciousness

  • Dal, delicious and so nutritious!

     

    A simple and very nutritious meal that takes very little prep time and leaves everyone craving more. It's easily one of my most requested meals by my friends and family and the recipe can be doubled or tripled to accommodate additional guests.

    1 cup of lentils (I prefer the French green variety if I want it to be less mushy) or mung dal (which makes a very creamy consistency)

    3 cups of broth or water

    1 Tbsp of ghee or coconut oil

    1-2 Tbsp of Korma spice blend

    2 Tsp of cinnamon

    1 onion, chopped

    1 can of coconut cream or coconut milk

    1 large can of chopped tomatoes or 4 fresh tomatoes, chopped

    salt & pepper to taste

    cilantro and basil for garnish

     

    In a large pot add the broth and lentils and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 40 minutes.

    In a skillet heat the oil. Add the onion and cook until soft. Add the spice and cook an additional minute to two. Add this mixture to the cooked lentils along with the coconut cream and chopped tomatoes. Stir. Cook an additional 5-10 minutes.

    Salt and pepper to taste.

    Serve with rice or naan. I also like to offer chutney, a green salad, a variety of hot sauces, and possibly raita to make the meal a complete feast.
