Recipes for a Kapha

Breakfast Recipes

Like most Kapha’s, I can go without breakfast and remain sane until quite late in the day. In fact, most Ayurvedic references recommend that a Kapha can skip if breakfast if no hunger is felt. But if I do have breakfast, these are the recipes I like.

Stewed Apples and Pears
Grapefruit with Honey, Ginger & Cardamom
Quinoa with Prunes
Kale Sundried Tomato Eggy Scramble

Lunch Recipes


Snack Recipes


Dinner Recipes

I work four days a week, and work out some evenings, so Monday through Thursday I need to eat food that is delicious, good for me and quick to make. At weekends I cook the more complicated dishes, but usually I like to spend a maximum of 45 minutes cooking from scratch. I am not a ‘natural’ cook; I use recipes until I know a dish by heart.

Grilled Aubergine with Chickpeas
Murghi Aur Palak (Chicken and Spinach) Curry
Stir-fried prawns in an aromatic tomato cream sauce
Brown Rice Salad

A list of all the variations of Kitchari recipes I’ve tried.
