I sometimes get mails that request recipes suited to a particular need. Normally I reply with a recipe if I have one, but it does not reflect on my blog. However when Ashwini wrote to me saying she needed some quick recipes for her baby because she wanted him to have the best without having to fret over how to make it, how she wanted her baby to grow up on natural sugars and salts and not become a ‘sugar addict’, it struck me that moms are more informed today than a decade back, and that it is nice to have a vegan resource for vegan babies as well.
The thoughts culminated in this ‘broccoli butter’ recipe made specially for Ashwini and for several other new mommas and papas. I have decided to post reader request recipes on my facebook fan page, because I thought I must give back something special to those who follow me there. Do check up the recipe and share with me your thoughts and suggestions.
I hope this column turns out useful for new mommies and people who like healthy food! We all have the greatest gift – the gift of donning a human body and a thinking brain. Let’s resolve to treat it with respect and give it the best!
