    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!

Creamy Beet Salad Dressing


This is an amazing salad dressing inspired by Bhumi devi dasi! Quick and easy and such an amazing color!


• 1 whole beet
• 1 1/2 cups plain yogurt or sour cream
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• juice from one lemon or lime
• 1 tsp salt, and pepper to taste
• dash of hing


  1. First you boil a whole beet until soft with the skin on. You will know when it is done when you stick a knife inside and it is all soft. It took about 15 minutes on high flame with a lid for this beet to cook.

  2. Then set aside and let it cool. To speed up the cooling time, cut the beet in half or into fours.

  3. After it has cooled, take the skin off. You will see that the skin falls right off very easily.

  4. Along with the beet add all the remaining ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

    1 whole beet
    1 1/2 cups plain yogurt or sour cream
    2 tbsp olive oil
    juice from one lemon or lime
    1 tsp salt, and pepper to taste
    dash of hing

  5. Here is what it should look like. Amazing color, right?!

  6. Now you are ready to serve over salad and offer to Kṛṣṇa with love and devotion!

    Hare Kṛṣṇa!
