Mung Dal Soup / Green Gram Soup

Being vegan. Nope not going completely vegan but sometimes you need to chill and just go with the flow of the circumstances. I don't have any issues with being vegan. There are loads of options to cook but sometimes it becomes difficult for carnivorous people like us. Since two months now, we have been following a vegan diet and the journey has been pleasant till now. Cooking & experimenting different recipes to suit our tastebuds.

Today sharing with you whole green lentil soup. This soup is full of fiber & a great source of protein. Not only helps to loose weight but at the same time keeps you full for a longer period of time.

Kaikat Al Tamar / Fully Loaded Dates Cake

This cake is loaded with dates. And again sticky syrup made from dates is poured over to make it more yummy. Few days back  a friend  requested me to bake something for her daughter's national day school function.I told her in advance  baking a cake is not a problem but decorating is not my forte.

She told me whatever I baked for her was completely fine for her & leaving me with no choice but present something good for the kiddos. As we are talking about the national day of UAE, I wanted to bake something using the core produce of this country. And what better to use than dates. I have combined the dates and arabic coffee, which takes this cake to another level in taste. So it was  decided to make a dates sheet cake, later cutting into rectangular bars & then  top it with small UAE national flags to get the feel of the national day.
