    Snake Gourd Pasta Sauce - Tomato free!

    Serves 2

    Did you know that a fully ripened snake gourd vegetable transforms into a wonderful tomato replacement? The pulp surrounding the seeds are a bright red color and have a sweet flavor. The orange creamy pulp that is on the skin has a very nice mild pumpkin flavor and has the texture of very creamy mashed potatoes. These two pulps blended together create a smooth sauce and when adding yogurt whey (the sour flavor) it creates a perfect tomato sauce! So delicious!

    Here is the wonderful dish I put together together today. Mostly all ingredients came from the garden!

How to make Yogurt Cheese


Here is a step by step tutorial on how to make yogurt cheese. This cheese works well in both savory and sweet dishes. You will find many recipes on this website requiring this ingredient. Hopefully this example will make it easy for anyone to make this sattvic cheese.


  • plain homemade yogurt
  • cheese cloth
  • large colander
  • large bowl


  1. First you will need some plain homemade yogurt.

  2. Next set up your colander with a large bowl underneath to catch the whey and a cheesecloth on top of the colander.

  3. Now pour all the yogurt onto the cheesecloth to begin the straining process.

  4. The yogurt will immediately begin straining the whey out.

  5. When you finish pouring all the yogurt onto the cheesecloth, cover with a plate or lid and put in the fridge over night.

  6. Here is what the yogurt cheese looks like the next day.

  7. Because I have such a huge quantity of yogurt, there is still more whey in the cheese. I will stir it up and let it strain some more.

  8. Here is the clear whey that strained out over night. Don't throw this away! You can make "Whey Ginger Lemonade" or use it in soups and sauces. You can cook your rice and pasta with it instead of using water. You can even water your plants with it!

  9. Here is the final product!! I let it strain in the fridge a little longer and now I am left with very thick yogurt cheese!
