Hi, I’m Vaishali and I am the human behind Holy Cow!, the first Indian vegan recipe blog on the web. Holy Cow! was born in November 2007, just a few months after I turned vegan (thanks to my great old dog Lucy! Scroll down for her picture).
At Holy Cow! you will find hundreds of easy, healthy and delicious recipes that are tried and tested in my kitchen, including lots of fat-free, low-fat and gluten-free recipes. Most recipes are kid-friendly and I always use wholesome, natural ingredients, most of which are already in your pantry.
I have lived in lovely Washington, D.C. for the past 17 years but I was born in Mumbai, India, so many of my recipes are Indian or influenced by my Indian background. I also love experimenting with global cuisines, including Mexican, Italian, and Middle Eastern, and I love to bake, especially bread. My recipes are ideal for those of you who juggle multiple responsibilities but love a delicious meal at the end of a long day. But don’t just expect a recipe– I like telling you the stories behind the food I serve up. You can also expect some chatter about the wonderfulness of animals (especially mine :)).
I update Holy Cow! several times each week, so be sure to check back often for updates. You can also follow Holy Cow! on Facebook, Pinterest, Google Plus and Twitter to keep up with what’s cooking here.
You can also email me at MyVeganWorld[at]gmail.com. I read every message and I will reply sooner rather than later, but please keep in mind that sometimes it might be a couple of days before I can get back to you.

|Lucy, my gorgeous mutt who set me on the path to a vegan life.
She passed away in 2012, but lives in my heart forever.
Thank you, Lucy. I love you.
