This is a staple in our home. A simple salad that is made throughout the Middle East, Arabian influenced African countries such as Sudan were it is called Salatet Zabady bil Ajur & the Mediterranean. It is served as a mezza or salad side dish. It is especially good as a cool sauce to be paired with hot rice dishes as we do. Recipe#387395, for example. Modified from Delights from the Garden of Eden by Nawal Nasrallah. Prep time does not include 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
Found this recipe on the web recently. Love the combination of flavors. Use the best quality green beans available. Canned beans won't work in this recipe. UPDATE: I've eliminated the step for submerging the beans in ice cold water per suggestion of a reviewer. Always room for improvement!
Based on a recipe from Terry Durack’s book, Noodle. This is a bit of work because of all the vegetable-chopping, but is well worth the effort, as I think this is fantastic! The recipe intro says, “In China, Buddhist monks go to extreme lengths to create vegetarian food that looks, smells, and even tastes like fish or meat. For me, however, the most successful vegetable dishes in the Chinese repertoire are those that look like vegetables. This is based on a classic Buddhist vegetarian dish that manages to satisfy both aesthetically and gastronomically.”
Got this recipe from a supermarket brochure and have been quite surprised at how tasty it is. So easy to make and very healthy as well! =)
For a variation just take peppers instead of tomatoes or couscous instead of the polenta.
Besides being colorful, this side dish pairs well with most meats…pork, beef or poultry. It's a fitting vegetable for autumn meals. The mild sweet flavor of the carrots is enhanced by the bacon and onion combination.
This recipe is for an authentic style quesadilla. Dust off your tortilla press, and put it to use to make these cheesy melted goodness quesadillas that even your Nana will love. (Don't worry, I have included instructions for making them using a rolling pin). Believe it or not, this is from Williams Sonoma Mexican- I'm lovin this book after only making one recipe from it so far.
This recipes sounds so good and the photo in Recipe+ magazine make look even better. Times are estimated and DO NOT included 20 minutes marinating time. They also suggest that you can replace hoisin sauce with plum sauce. You could also use 2 small twin pack chicken but cooking time will vary. For a quick gravy you could mix powdered gravy with boiling water and minced garlic cloves. If dutch carrots are not available use regular carrots and cut into quarters lenghtwise.
I had to come up with this quick. Every Thanksgiving my mom serves Green Giant Niblets corn in butter sauce and I promised I would pick it up for her and bring it on Thanksgiving day. When I went to the store, they were sold out! I made this recipe and brought it already prepared to Thanksgiving dinner. Nobody was the wiser! I saved some money too, because I used store brand corn! This recipe makes a lot...you may want to half it.
