Bhutan maintains this by making the country a carbon sick and has set world records for planting the most trees per hour. They're also aiming for zero net greenhouse gas emissions and zero-waste by 2030 as well as 100% organic food production by 2020.
The Bhutanese government has also formed a partnership with @Nissan to provide thousands of electric cars to the country.
Now Discovering Taktshang Monastery, Bhutan with @theplanetd.
Paro Taktsang, is a prominent Himalayan Buddhist sacred site and the temple complex is located in the cliffside of the upper Paro valley in Bhutan. A temple complex was first built in 1692, around the Taktsang Senge Samdup cave where Guru Padmasambhava is said to have meditated for three years, three months, three weeks, three days and three hours in the 8th century. #the discoverer

Mi sento addosso tutti gli occhi del mondo.
Un milione di impressioni alle quali vorrei trovare una collocazione.
Ma per il momento non ho voglia di scrivere, né tantomeno di pensare.
I sense all the world’s eyes on me.

Go off the radar: One of the least visited destinations in the world Bhutan offers the opportunity to experience solo travelling in a rich and relatively unchanged environment. See: The Tiger's Nest, one of Bhutan's most sacred Buddhist sites. When: Visit between October and December for clear skies, however, the region blooms with rhododendrons in June. . . .
BAKED POPCORN OKRA
Baked Popcorn Okra. Okra / Bhindi tossed in chickpea flour batter, coated in spiced breadcrumbs and baked until crunchy crisp. Vegan Recipe, can be gluten-free and oil-free.
Author: Vegan Richa
Recipe type: Appetizer
1.5 to 2 cups chopped okra
⅓ cup chickpea flour (you might need an additional tbsp if using besan)
½ cup water
¼ tsp garlic
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp oil
1 cup breadcrumbs , use gf breadcrumbs or cornmeal to make glunte-free
1.5 tbsp nutritional yeast
½ tsp chipotle pepper powder
¼ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp paprika
¼ tsp turmeric(optional)
½ tsp garlic
¼ tsp onion powder

Chop the okra. In a bowl mix the batter ingredients. It should be the consistency of thick buttermilk. Add a few tsp more water or flour if needed.
In another bowl, mix all the breading ingredients well. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Add chopped okra, a half cup at a time into the batter bowl, remove using slotted spoon, tap to drop the excess batter, Transfer to breading bowl. Move the pieces around to coat, transfer to baking sheet. I put a lid on the breading bowl and move it around. This works if you ensure that there is not too much excess batter on the okra pieces. Repeat for all the okra.
Spray oil on the breaded okra. Bake at 425 degrees F for 20 to 23 minutes or until golden.Serve warm with chutneys, ketchup or sauces of choice! or add to salads or dal bowls.
Use other spice blend like cajun, garam masala or blackeing spice blend for variation.
To make oil-free, omit the oil. #MeatlessMondayBhutan#LetsMakeLoveViral#Bhutan#vegan#vegetarian#health#compassion#SaveWater#SaveOurPlanet#SustainableLiving#SustainableDevelopmentGoals#AllLifeIsPrecious#ClimateChangeIsReal@meatlessmonday@meatlessmondaysl@greenmondayvn@adrabangladesh@veganerie@ambientcafe@hsiglobal 😊💚🇧🇹🌎
