A Flavorful Vegetarian Lunch at Devi & Del’s

My Dad visits us here in California about once every year, and every time he visits we are invited for lunch or dinner at a few of our friend’s homes. One of our dear friends are Devi and Del, and over the years going to Devi and Del’s home for lunch when Dad visits has become almost a tradition. The last time we headed over to Devi’s we were treated to a delicious vegetarian Indian lunch. Our friend Rose and her son Alex joined us too, and we all had a lively afternoon discussing cultures (India, U.S. and Philippines) and U.S. politics. Oh my what an animated debate we had – all in good humor 😄.

For our lunch Devi had prepared a scrumptious Indian meal. I brought a yogurt raita, Rose brought a big bowl of fresh fruit, and Devi cooked the rest. This vegetarian menu had the perfect balance of legumes, vegetables, and whole grains. Here is a look at what was on the menu.
