Creamy Vegetable Subji

Here is a nice variation for a vegetable dish that goes great with rice or pasta. This basic recipe works well in all seasons and with all doshas. You may wish to vary some of the vegetables to accommodate your climate or specific protocol needs. First prepare the following vegetables by cleaning and slicing in small pieces.

1 small peeled butternut squash
1 large peeled potato
2 peeled carrots
½ red bell pepper
¼ head of green cabbage

In a large pot combine the following freshly ground spices and saute.

2 tsp. ghee
1 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. coriander
½ tsp. fennel
½ tsp. finely chopped ginger

Add the vegetables and 3 cups of water and cook until the vegetables are soft. Stir the veggies until they break up and start to become thicker and creamy. The more you stir, the creamier it will become. You may enjoy this dish served alone or on top of rice or pasta. Serves four.
