Curries are a big part of Eid, but more often than not they’re heavily meat-laden. This Pumpkin Tempeh Curry is a perfect lighter vegetarian option, packed with nutrients and flavour. Best part is, you can cook it all in one pot! Who said cooking for Eid had to be difficult?
Briyani is a staple across festive celebrations—from Eid to Deepavali. Change it up this year with a raw, vegan twist. Instead of using rice, this Briyani is made from jicama! An easy way to keep your meals colourful, healthy and refreshing this Eid.

What’s a celebration without dessert? This fun, vibrant Dragon Fruit Agar Agar is the perfect example of a beautiful and healthy dessert.
