Cardamom and garam masala add subtle spice to split peas and sweet potatoes. Directions for making on the stove and for the slow cooker. I like to add a little curry powder to spice it up even more! Adapted from Whole Foods.
This makes a great breakfast on the go, using banana, blueberries and non dairy mlk. Adding ground flax offers a healthful boost of omega 3s, fiber and protein. Got this from Whole Foods and changed it around a little.
Have you ever tried the golden sesame tofu from Whole Foods? Yum. Here is a copycat recipe that may even be better. The secret here is the cornstarch, it gives the tofu its chewy coating, but you have to sprinkle it over the tofu evenly and with a light hand; otherwise it’ll get gloppy(using a wire mesh works well). You’ll find toasted sesame oil and mirin(or you can sub rice wine vinegar) in the Asian sections of well-stocked supermarkets.

This is from the show Throwdown with Bobby Flay, Episode: Chicken Tikka Masala. I posted this to go with the Masala Sauce(Bobby Flay), which I posted separately. I am trying to replicate a recipe I tried up in Conn. Enjoy!
I visited a Whole Foods store in Conn. recently and tried their Masala rice and it was so good(the rice and the sauce were mixed together), I wanted to recreate the recipe at home. Not finding it in the Whole Foods site, I came across this recipe by Bobby Flay. The recipe for the Masala sauce came with the recipe for Basmati Pilaf with Peas, but I'm posting it separately. From Bobby Flay's Throwdown with Bobby Flay, Episode: Chicken Tikka Masala.
Yum! The original recipe used all wild rice. I have subbed some brown rice, or a blend of rices. Also the original recipe calls for barley miso, but you can use whatever miso you have on hand(I use either red or white), whichever one you use will give a different and yummy flavor. Enjoy! Adapted from a recipe from Whole Foods.
I just got back from visiting my sister. She has some great cookbooks, so I spent some time perusing. I love tea with lemon in it. This is from America's Most Wanted Recipes Cookbook by Ron Douglas. I have changed it just a bit to my taste.
From Alton Brown, Good Eats, Episode: Et Tu Mame. Delicious! I have tweaked it just a little bit. :) You can double the chile sauce to increase the heat if you wish. I used Thai sweet chili sauce but use the red chili paste or sambal oleck if you like.
Most commonly used to glaze meat and poultry. Drizzle this over fresh strawberries or creamy goat cheese to tweak their flavors. It's also a great glaze for sweet potatoes. Gotten from Rachael Ray's show, where Sheryl Crow was a guest.
I played with another recipe and liked it so much I am posting it for safekeeping. My son who doesn't eat fake cheese, devoured this! I hope you enjoy it too. Can be used for burritos, sandwiches, dip with chips, over rice or noodles, with mac and cheese, etc.
Here is a recipe that can be used for many different uses. It's a great way to keep fresh bell peppers ready to use at a moment's notice. You can use different colors or just one color depending on what you have. Serve as part of an antipasto platter, add to salads or sandwiches, and the oil can also be used to flavor dressings or drizzle on bread.
