This is the 4th video in the series of cooking shows featuring Basu’s Homestyle Indian vegan sauces. Jon Ham and Julieanna Hever teach you how to make a brown rice pasta dish with veggies and Basu’s Peanut Masala sauce. It is something different for you to try and it sure is delicious and the final product is full of nutrients, fiber, and it tastes fantastic!
Here is Part 3 in our series of cooking videos with Jon Ham and Julieanna Hever demonstrating how you can create a healthy plant-based meal using one of Basu's Homestyles Indian Vegan sauces. This one is using a Vegan Masala Sauce that is out of this world tasty! We pressed some tofu to mimic the taste of cheese or "Paneer," then added some vegetable broth, frozen peas, canned tomatos, and of course the Masala Sauce. It probably took 10 minutes to make from start to finish, and it tasted fantastic!
Here is Jon Ham from www.fitnesstrainingbyjon.com and Julieanna Hever www.plantbaseddietitian.com creating some healthy plant based or vegan recipes using our sauces which can be found in Whole Foods. This recipe is a vindaloo veggie stirfry with broccoli, mushrooms, red bell pepper, bok choy and brown rice. Vegetable broth is used to saute' the veggies.
Here's an excerpt from The Vegetarian Travel Blog:
"Wowie….we were mighty impressed with Basu and his Homestyle Indian Cuisine once we had prepared this mighty meal. This wasn’t no Tasty Bite pre-packaged Indian mush. This was the real freakin’ deal. Basu’s recipes are superb, packed with flavor, and best yet: are totally vegan. Each sauce is authentic, fresh, and made with lots of love. He really has done a fantastic job of bringing his homestyle flair to the mainstream public without sacrificing traditional flavor. The other best part about Basu’s Indian grub is you don’t even have to make it yourself because Whole Foods will make it all for you. Like I mentioned earlier, Whole Foods offer’s Basu’s Homestyle Indian Cuisine in their hot bar in 4 states, mostly in California. They’ll lovingly prepare Basu’s delicious creations and all you have to do is show up, scoop whatever you choose onto your plate, make your purchase and enjoy! Basu’s Homestyle Indian Cusine gets my “Yummylicious Stamp of Approval.” Fo sho. Thanks Basu for letting us play with your tasty creations! We very much enjoyed the experience!"

Once we received our Sampler Pack from Basu’s, my fiancé and I were excited to get cooking…well, I did the cooking, he really just ate.
The first meal I made with Basu’s Sampler Pack was:
The Saffron Rice was amazing, perfectly seasoned and surprisingly tasty for something I only had to warm up in the microwave. The rice was awesome on its own, but with a little of the Masala sauce mixed in, it was heavenly. I roasted some red potatoes with a few spices, and then just dumped them into the already warmed Masala sauce; these were my absolute favorite part of this meal. I also made little Seitan bites with wheat gluten and spices, which I baked and then added sautéed muhrooms and spinach, then poured the Peanut Masala sauce over the whole thing. Both Masala sauces were delicious. The flavors were so savory and rich, but not overpowering; each Masala perfectly complemented the foods they were mixed into. My fiancé’s favorite was the Peanut Masala: he drowned his seitan and veggies in it as soon as the pictures were done being taken.
The next night, we decided we wanted to try and make some flatbread pizzas:
I wasn’t sure how these would turn out, since I wasn’t using the usual pizza ingredients, but they were so good. I warmed the Vindaloo sauce before putting it on the flatbreads. I used two flatbreads for each pizza, since they’re thin; I spread some Vindaloo sauce on the first flatbread before placing the second on top and piling on the toppings. I baked these for about ten minutes – one of the easiest and tastiest meals I’ve ever made. The Vindaloo was so incredibly good as a pizza sauce – it had a delicious savory flavor and was so aromatic, it really enhanced the other toppings on these pizzas.
I cannot express my thanks enough for this delightful pack of sauces and I cannot wait to try some more recipes incorporating them. You and everyone else at Basu’s forever have my (and my fiancé’s) gratitude for creating such delectable (and VEGAN) sauces and rice. =)
Thank you for sending these sauces to my husband and I. We were very excited about receiving the package and couldn’t wait to get started on making some tasty meals.
The first (and my favorite) curry we made was an Aloo Gobi, using the Masala sauce. The spices really stood out and were balanced in flavor. We had it with some saffron rice, vegetable samosas (we had these already) with the tamarind chutney, and wheat tortillas. The only possible way to improve this sauce would be if you offered a spicier version or maybe add mild, medium, etc. to the packaging so people know the level of spiciness.
We look forward to making more curries with the remaining sauces in the days or weeks to come. Thanks again Basu’s Homestyle.
