MCLV Mange: Indian Feast

I’m a huge fan of Indian food – it’s my all time favorite takeout indulgence – so I was thrilled when I saw Vegan Sparkles’s Vegan MoFo Tandoori Cauliflower & Cucumber Raita Wraps.

I couldn’t wait to give this one a try!

I adore cauliflower so I was excited that it was the base of this recipe and quickly picked one up at the Farmers Market, but as far as the other ingredients I mostly just used what I had on hand.

Luckily for me there’s a fabulous vendor at the Ferry Building Farmers Market on Saturdays – They carry great spices, sauces, marinades, naan, curries, tapanades, and anything else you might need to put together your own Indian feast. I picked up some tandoori marinade and smothered the fresh, organic cauliflower head in the fragrant sauce.

After marinating it for an hour in the fridge I threw the cauliflower into the oven – It smelled AMAZING while it was baking. Side note: You end up COVERED in orange – red sauce!

I served the tandoori cauliflower with curried veggies – A frozen bag of eight vegetable blend from Trader Joe’s that was in the back of the freezer combined with fresh kale. It was a healthy, delicious, hearty meal that really filled me up.

Stay tuned for the next MCLV Mange installment and check out the previous posts from this series to see what you’ve missed so far:

Food – While I don’t photograph all of my food or even all of the new recipes that I try, sometimes a meal is just too tasty or too fun to pass up a photo-op. Here are a couple shots that passed the test this week.

SERIOUS munching over here! #Shakti #indianfood #vegan #glutenfree

Fashion – When I can remember I’ll snap a picture of my accessories, handbag, or even my outfit for the day. Most of my Instagram updates are my jewelry though, since its the easiest to capture solo.

Wearing a new dress always makes my day! #sanfrancisco @Zara

Hello lover! @ninewest #fashion #sanfrancisco

Time to switch wallets! @CHANEL @Longchamp_US @HenriBendel #Fendi #Goyard @veneta_bottega

Misc – What I’m best at capturing are all of the random things that happen throughout the day. The frustrations that everyone can relate to as well as the little “I love my life” moments. From outing in San Francisco & weekends away to shopping adventures & meals out on the town to my crazy cats & amazing friends, family, and boyfriend.

I really like the idea of this kind of post since I know a number of my blog readers don’t use Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest regularly, so this gives them a chance to take a look at those outlets. What do you think? Do you like having a weekly summary? Should this be a recurring series?
