You need to freeze banana slices-I always have them in my freezer. There is no specific measurement to how many banana slices you need and how much peanut butter you require. Into a steel blade food processor, you add frozen banana slices, peanut butter and blend them until it comes to ice cream consistency 🙂 That is the white layer. Then you add cacao powder( to the blender ) depending on how chocolaty you like your brown layer to be. Blend for 30 seconds. Add that on top and that’s it 🙂 Try to swirl with a tooth pick and put it back in the freezer for 5 mins and enjoy 🙂

South African Split Pigeon Pea Soup-3 main ingredients only

I was away for a month in South Africa volunteering with lions (Excuse for not blogging regularly) Had the most amazing time of my life :D. Got to do lot of adventure activities-one of which was cage diving with sharks at Gaansbaai , Cape town.

It was a freezing cold day and had to jump into the water, do up-down up-down like 200 times, it was exhausting. Back on shore, the tour company that took us into the ocean had this vegetable soup ready to warm us up. No offence – I thought Australia was the biggest meat eating country. I was wrong. It is South Africa. Finding vegan food is a challenge there :P. Anyways, I did my normal questioning with the ladies there – Any chicken stock,butter, cream blah blah blah? The lady who made the soup said it had only lentils, potato and carrots. NOTHING ELSE. I had a mouthful of the soup and man, it was the best soup I have ever had. Got the recipe from the ladies.

Ingredients: 

  • Split pigeon pea-1/2 cup soaked in hot water for 30 mins and boil until its mushy
  • Carrot grated-1
  • Potato grated-2

Method:

  • Add all the ingredients, lower the heat and cook on low flame for like 40 mins. Keep adding water to retain the soup consistency
  • Add salt and pepper and that’s it 🙂 Yummy soup. No oil or stock.
  • Deepa of Spice Rack blog had added a green mango for sourness. You could do that too 🙂
