I went to a 4-day yoga & meditation retreat over Memorial Day weekend. There, I was reminded of the Ayurvedic principles of eating which are grounded in the importance of eating a plant-based diet (for our health and the environment)... so here's a flavor-packed, all vegetarian recipe. Feel free to make this with any veggie you might have in your fridge. Bon appetit!
