I just have to share with you what I consider delicious; The Walking Monk Salad Dressing. Creator of the recipe: Radha Krishna Dasi from Montreal.
(Makes approximately 750ml \ 2.5 cups)
1/2 cup yogurt
1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes (flakes)
3 tablespoons tamari
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoon lemon juice
2 1/2 tablespoon buckwheat honey
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1/2 teaspoon asefateda (hing)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Put all ingredients in a mason jar and shake until smooth.
I'm a sucker for salads only when not naked. The salad will have to have some dressing. Offer it to your deity or picture of Krishna with mantras and you'll find something divine.
Speaking of executing a ritual, I was graced with occasions to speak at two universities about rites of passage. Firstly, at St. Thomas University I demonstrated a puja (worship procedure) for a standard arati. It involves incense, flame, water, towel, flower, bell, and blowing conch. I think it was a treat for Professor Parkhill's students.
Then in Sackville, New Brunswick, the practice of kirtan was highlighted at Mount Allison University with students of Barb Clayton. This was delectable as was the first group and as is the salad dressing.
May the Source be with you.
