Note: The weight of the bean thread is a guess. Just use 4 regular sized packages. New Zealand corned beef was specified but any canned product will work.
Most Albanian desserts trace their roots from either Turkey or Greece. Along with Sheqerpare, a guest in an Albanian home may be offered Turkish coffee and raki, a clear, strong brandy made from grapes. From the cookbook "The Best of Albanian Cooking" submitted for "My Food Odyssey"
Spain is quite famous for its seafood stews, and Shrimp Zarzuela reflects this culinary heritage. Golden Spanish olive oil, unique sherry wine vinegar, sweet paprika and fragrant saffron are the Spanish flavors that give this one-pot meal its character. The traditional seafood dishes of Spain use a variety of shellfish from the Mediterranean Sea; we simplified the recipe by focusing on ever-popular shrimp. Round out this meal by serving a premiere cheese from Spain, such as Manchego or Cabrales. From Foods of Spain.
Qabili Palau is the national dish of Afghanistan! It's also not very vegan. It's usually made with chicken, lamb or both. This isn't very traditional, so substituting some delicious spice marinated tofu - not because it was authentic, but because it is incredibly delicious! This says 4 servings but with 3 cups of uncooked rice, it serves more. From Gormandize.

For the Spanish area.
Catalan cooks from the rugged seacoast areas near Barcelona, Spain make this very soupy fish-and-potato stew with the catch of the day, usually some kind of white fish. Roughly translated, suquet means "juice" or "juicy."

Like Lebanese cuisine, Iranian cuisine includes a plethora of different pickled vegetables - pickled cucumbers, pickled cauliflower, pickled eggplant, pickled garlic, pickled onions and pickled carrots. They're quite strong so serve them as a side dish with a meal - but be warned, they will made your meal incredibly special and very zingy. From Gormandize.
I love this recipe! It's cheap, delicious and fast to prepare. It comes from an old boyfriend's mum. She is Samoan and a great cook. As this is a Samoan recipe, you can bet it's going to feed a small army.
This is a vegetarian version of a traditional Albanian dish. It makes a tasty side and is delicious served with yogurt, which is commonly eaten in Albanian meals. You can use any mushrooms you want, but the stronger tasting ones are better. Spice to taste, I like more red pepper than the Albanians probably do. Adapted from 20 Albanian Recipes and submitted for My Food Odyssey.
The national dish of Andorra made vegan. A lovely soup with summer vegetables. A traditional summer recipe from the Balearic Islands. You can use marjoram instead of oregano. Andorra is located in the eastern Pyrenees mountains and bordered by Spain and France.
