Welcome to my online cooking school, where we explore the wonders of a plant-based diet infused with Indian Ayurvedic principles.
In this module, we dive into the world of legumes—lentils, beans, gram, and peas. I will guide you step by step on how to cook these legumes properly, ensuring improved digestibility and enhanced bioavailability. Through my personal experience, I've observed that many individuals, particularly from the West, lack knowledge in cooking legumes, while those from the East often rely too heavily on pressure cookers, compromising the nutritional value. Hence, I emphasize the importance of soaking legumes, which eliminates phytic acid and promotes germination for increased nutritional content.
Within this course, you will also learn about the spices that harmonize perfectly with lentils. These spices not only elevate the flavor but also aid digestion significantly. You can find a variety of spices on my website, MasalaMia, or explore numerous free recipes for garam masalas online and grind them yourself. I strongly encourage grinding your own spices rather than purchasing them from a store.
Incorporating legumes into your diet becomes crucial for vegetarians and vegans as they provide essential protein, minerals, and vitamins. My course will offer valuable tips on cooking legumes to retain their maximum nutritional value. Whether you are considering a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle or simply seeking to master the art of cooking lentils ( dals) , this course is for you.
Furthermore, lentils and beans play a significant role in nourishing our microbiome by providing insoluble fiber and butyrate. So, apart from their nutritional benefits, this course may deepen your appreciation for legumes and their positive impact on our gut health.
Wishing you a joyful cooking experience,

Hello Friends! Welcome to my Online ayurvedic cooking school . My name is Elena Boeva and I am an Ayurvedic health practitioner, specializing in Ayurvedic plant based cooking and spices. I graduted ayurvedic school in NYC in April 2019. The principal teacher was dr. Naina Marballi who has MD in Ayurveda and have been practicing for over 40 years. Needless to say she was an amazing person, she taught me how to cook from Ayurvedic point of view. I fell in love with that technique and I am doing it ever since. I also have my natural curiosity for creating flavors and passion for healthy food pushed me into studying all sorts of techniques of cooking plant based foods at home. I quickly realized that it has to be simple, local and fresh. I do however praise Ayurvedic principles when it comes to creating a healthy meal, so you will see a lot of Ayurvedic recipes in my videos. Once you learn the basics of Ayurvedic cooking, you can go from there and be your own health Chef at home. I believe that your health starts in your kitchen, not restaurants. I will be sharing MY OWN recipes that I developed over time. My courses are great for ANYONE who wants to learn how to cook a plant based meal at home. ~ Namaste
