Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Of vacations, going missing and a salad recipe

So I have been missing from this space for a while now and while I see some of you looking at me and saying “now, now what’s new in it? Don’t you do that now and then”, if you look this year I have been a little better and regular dear readers. This time around the reason was missing was the series of kids workshops during summer vacations and then the big 10 day long Belgium and Europe vacation we did. I have so much to write about that vacation, where we went, what we ate and so much more. Hopefully very very soon.

In the meanwhile, I have started writing for Archana’s Kitchen. Some recipes, some articles and a lot of plans for more. Do check out all of my writing on AK here at this link. I might or might not be sharing the stuff I write there depending on time and other factors. So do follow me there too  besides AK is a great website to follow in general anyways.

Sharing a recipe of Pear and AlfaAlfa sprouts recipe that was posted there a while ago. If you follow my instagram feed (link here) you will know we do eat a lot of salads at home and I intend to post some of my favorites here on the blog and this is the starting of the salad series hopefully

Pear and alfa alfa sprouts salad

Recipe :

Serves : 2


  • 2 crisp green pears
  • 1/2 cup alfa alfa sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon roasted peanuts, coarsely pounded
  • 3-4 basil leaves, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced Brie cheese (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinaigrette
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • Salt to taste


  1. To begin making the Pear and Alfa Alfa Sprouts Salad Recipe, wash and slice pears in thin slices and add it to a large salad bowl.
  2. Combine all ingredients together along with the sliced pears until just about combined. Make sure the sprouts and pear are dry. Wet ingredients can lead to limp salads.
  3. Serve Pear and Alfa Alfa Sprouts Salad chilled along with toasted garlic bread garnished with a few basil leaves for a light lunch or dinner.

PS: I believe wordpress played a bad cop in my scheduled posts while I was away and uploaded empty posts, have deleted them and will repost them with recipes soon.
