All of her life Siri Ved Kaur has had a natural love of cooking, learning first in the kitchen with her Grandma Kosten, making breads, noodles, streusels, sausages, and pies all from scratch, and then at the side of her spiritual teacher, Yogi Bhajan, starting in 1971, just shortly after she had become a vegetarian.
It was during those years of serving as Yogi Bhajan’s personal cook that her intuitive understanding of conscious food preparation first blossomed. He guided her in the art and science of yogic food preparation, while his wife, Bibi Inderjit Kaur, trained her in the wonderful art of Indian cooking.
Since then, she has authored two vegetarian cookbooks, Conscious Cookery (1979) and From Vegetables with Love (1989). She now owns Yogi Eats!, a popular vegetarian catering and home delivery service in Los Angeles, that specializes in healthy, healing, nurturing, yogic foods. You will find many recipes that she has developed for Yogi Eats included in her column, There’s a Yogi in the Kitchen!, as well as in her upcoming third cookbook (likely by the same name).
