Corn latkes? Yes, corn latkes. Why should the humble tuber have all the fun? These are tasty variation on a Hanukkah favorite. So good, you shouldn’t wait ‘til then to make some. Depending on your mood you can serve them sweet or savory.
Can be served as a hot appetizer or side dish. Many reviewers have commented that they have found the herb amounts to be too much, so you may want to reduce them according to your own tastes. Originally submitted for the 2005 World Tour.
While the combination strawberries with balsamic vinegar is common in many dishes, the sweet-acidic balance of the vinegar pairs well with other fruits. This dessert whips up in a heartbeat and is the perfect ending to an Italian meal.
Canadian Living recently featured a an article promoting recipes rich in grains. This soup looked so comforting and satisfying, I knew that as autumn arrived it would be the perfect meal. Submitted for 'Zaar World Tour.
Native to South America, quinoa is rich in fiber, protein and other nutrients. This is a lovely variation on the more common rice pudding and is best served warm. The final product is firm and can be sliced. Top with your favorite fruit and this dessert makes for a terrific breakfast. Since I tend to not like my desserts very sweet, I usually make this with 2/3 cup sugar or a combination of sugar and Splenda. (For Core followers, you can make this Core bu skipping the currants and nuts, and replacing the sugar with Splenda. Add the Splenda towards the end to avoid the artificially sweetened taste.)
A great way to use up leftover boiled, baked or mashed potatoes. I love omelets and separately whipping the egg whites makes this light and fluffy despite the inclusion of potatoes. In case you're wondering about taste - imagine a cross between a knish and a souffle. Other herbs or grated onions might be good variations.
Posting this for inclusion in the Zaar Worls Tour. A simple dish from the Greek islan from Cyprus, the would make a nice addition to a meze platter or as a side dish. Though it is an untried dish, it comes from World Vegetarian - a simply wonderful compilation of recipes by Madhur Jaffrey.
Another delectable entry for the Zaar World Tour from the enticing World Vegetarian Cookbook by Madhur Jaffrey. This is simple enough to prepare midweek and comforting as the first cold air of fall arrives.
I am fortunate to work at a place where the manager of the cafeteria is a Moroccan native. Our mutual love of food has resulted in endless exchange of recipes, spices and samplings. (Indeed, some of the items now served in the cafeteria are recipes from this site.) One one occasion, I was lucky enough to be able to share in the lunch he prepared for the staff. I love eggs and his were just amazing. This recipe from World Vegetarian seems like a close approximate - though I know his version included a generous bit of cumin and cilantro. I'm posting the original here and will begin to tinker. Once perfected, I'll post that version as a second recipe. Will experiment to see if this works as well with canned tomatoes.
This dish was inspired by Vote_for_Pedro's White Bean & Spinach Soup. Like the original, this is quick, easy and full of flavor. It makes a nice dinner for 4 served with a good salad or it can be a starting course and serve more. Use 3 or 4 cups of broth according to how thick you like your soups or how much liquid your pasta absorbs.
This recipe is from Super Suppers, the franchise that allows families to prepare meals ahead of time in their central kitchen. They do the prep, you do the assembly for quick dinners from the freezer. I love flank steak and this sweet/spicy combination appealed to me. The addition of pepper is mine and the way I like this dish.
