With all that’s been happening in the world, any way to boost immunity is important now more than ever. Luckily having my husband be of Indian heritage means I get the advantage of learning about all the authentic Indian goodness, from vegetable dishes, bean and chickpea dishes, lentil ‘stews’, and the best part are the drinks. Authentic chai is delicious, and this noncaffeinated vegan Indian golden milk is another winner.
