I made this to play Tag in the Vegetarian Forum. I am not vegan myself but often cook vegetarian or vegan dishes.
I know several of these recipes are NOT vegan - I added them thinking people would know how to adapt the recipe by substituting margarine or an acceptable sweetener. To the best of my knowledge there is no honey, liquid dairy or eggs. Please be kind...if something really doesn't belong here, just let me know & I will remove it.
I made this up the other day when I had no idea what to make for dinner. I served it under poached eggs. My kids mentioned it would work wonderfully as a taco filling. There's probably several other uses, too! The ancho gives it a bit of heat without being overpowering.
A lovely Cajun berry and wine compote, redolent with vanilla and the unexpected flavor of bay. The restaurant used mixed berries, but if you have an abundance of one kind, this would be a good way to show them off. This was once on the menu at Artesia Restaurant on the North Shore, New Orleans, although I'm not sure it is anymore. Simple and elegant.
Found for the World Tour 2005, this looks like something dh would love! A Mexican recipe, it has been called ' "funeral coffee" because it is always served at the velorios - all-night wakes - with large trays of sweet rolls.'
This pudding's packed with A SURPRISE INGREDIENT. Avocados are rich in healthy fat that's beneficial for your heart, hair and skin. Make the pudding ahead of time and refrigerate so the flavors can mingle. From Shape Magazine.
I found this recipe for my Italian FIL. He said he'd never heard of them but his mother DID make "jubilee onions." I figure if calamari = galama, sopressata - soopesage, cavatelli = gavadeel, then cipollini = jubilee.
This is a very simple, straightforward recipe as are many Italian recipes.
From North India. If you're like me & enjoy experimenting, go to the nearest Indian store (or online) & order up as many kinds of dal as you can & then find ways to use them! This was posted on a vegetarian website & I like the recipe so I swiped it to share here. Once you have the ingredients, it's a breeze to make! **The 2 hour soak time is NOT included in the cook time**
This is a Chinese dessert that I found to submit for the Zaar World Tour '05...
Coconut milk lends a sweet flavor to bananas in this quick and easy recipe. It makes a light dessert for two, or can easily be doubled to serve four people.
Mbaazi wa Nazi (Pigeon Peas with Coconut) are the Swahili way to prepare this popular tropical pulse. The pigeon pea is evidently native to Africa or Asia. In Egypt, the cultivation of pigeon peas began before 2000 B.C. Today pigeon peas are widely cultivated in all tropical and semi-tropical regions the world over, and are especially popular in India and the Caribbean.
Don't know if it's 'correct' or authentic but it's good. Hubby had me make a batch to can. Of course, you can add as much or little chipotle as your palate desires. Next time, I plan to use prepared chili sauce instead of the ketchup.
I took a bag of lima beans & a recipe from Mark Bittman's 'How to Cook Everything Vegetarian', used 3 different suggested variations then did my own tweaking to arrive at this. I went with a Middle Eastern twist. It is very lemony, thyme-y, creamy from the beans & olive oil, a bit of zip from the pepper; just delicious. And very easy. This made enough for 4 people's dinner w/out leftovers. Who knew lima beans could be SO good??
The 90 minute prep time is for cooking the beans and is approximate.
