From Super Food Ideas July 2008. Though I have listed chicken stock as per recipe I used a homemade ham stock. This bought back memories of New Years Eve parties that my parents used to have and there was always pots of mushy peas served. UPDATE- after making this several times now I have found the cooking time will vary between 25 to 45 minutes - I can only put it down to the split peas and that they may vary from packet to packet.
A great sounding recipe from TOH that I am posting for ZWT 6. The description states: You’ll love the great flavor and easy preparation of Trisha Kruse’s fresh side dish. The Eagle, Idaho cook tosses bright green beans in a sweet sauce with a subtle kick.
This is a twist on the usual spinach salad. It's fast and easy to prepare. You can make it more substansial by adding 3-4 cups of cooked pasta (like rotelle). I prefer to use red peppers in place of the green. Recipe comes from Betty Crocker's "Easy Meatless Dishes".
This is SO simple, either crock pot or stovetop! A friend of mine served this a few weeks ago on a very cold Sunday and I've made it three times since! Spice it up or tone it down as you like. I like spicy foods so I add a lot of Tabasco? to my bowl! Some people like to add okra as well for the real gumbo look...I hope you enjoy this!
Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. It's from a special edition of Saveur, The Best of Tex-Mex Cooking. They recommend you use 2 cups dried navy beans soaked overnight, but I've altered the recipe and cooking time for canned. I also halved the amount of oil. When I tried this it made a rather soupy stew; if you prefer your stews drier, I suggest cutting back on the broth, and add more if it gets too dry.
Flavorful, filling, healthy and delicious, this is more colorful and interesting than basic beans and rice...kidneys, black beans, garbanzos, spices and a dollop of peanut butter make this dish awesome, and it's easy to make! Seems a bit thicker than a stew to me. Oh, and my toddler loves it!
An easy flavorful dish, I like to serve this with couscous mixed with lots of finely chopped parsley and a dish of preserved lemons on the side. Reheats well.If you like the red peppers with more crunch, add them to the dish when you put the zucchini in.
Nice vegan stew made creamy by the peanut butter. I love to make this extra spicy to contrast the sweet of the peanut butter. For even more zing (and to add the health benefits) I like to add a few more minced cloves of garlic a minute or two before it's done. Changed a bit but originally from Kate's(Vegan)Cookery Site.
1 pot, 1 hour = simple, incredibly tasty vegetarian meal. Truly a delightful change from ordinary lentil stew or soup. Make sure you have a hunk of great bread to sop up the stew juices or you'll end up using your fingers! Add a salad for a complete meal.
Matt makes this yummy dal from a book called A Little Taste of India. It is similar to Dal Makhani, so if you like that you should like this, too. It has great authentic flavour.
We use ghee for the oil, but we'll leave it up to you.
This is a hearty Southern dish, easy to make and full of flavor and quite spicy! I sometimes add in cooked ground beef, you can add in some chopped cooked bacon or use spicy dryed smoked sausage to the beans for smokey flavor --- I also like to add in some Creole seasoning -- see my recipe#186029
This sounds like a really good black bean soup...though I love most ALL black bean soup! I'll update once I've tried it. I'm posting this for ZWT 4. This is a recipe I got by Cinda Sanners from her "Soup Buffet" show.
Our little community in Maine occasionally does ethnic-themed potluck dinners. Found this on an ethnic foods website and made it for Greek Night (figuring everyone else would do the usual spanakopita, mousaka, etc.) The fresh rosemary really makes this dish -- you might even want to up the amount a bit!
Ethiopian Spicy Split Lentil Stew (Yimser Wot) is cooked with chili powder (Berbere) and served with Injera (Ethiopian flat bread) or bread of your choice. Excellent dish for vegans and Lent Observers.
This burger is so delicious, you will not miss the meat, promise! Here's a tip: If you don't want this patties to fall apart, you absolutely need to make a rough chop while processing, also try making thinner patties.
