Another winner from The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen. I have to tell you that I shamelessly cheat with this recipe and use frozen artichoke hearts from Trader Joe's-saves a significant amount of time. Use fresh artichokes if you wish.
A Middle Eastern dip or salad, made from aubergines/eggplant and tahini, deliciously garlicky and sublimely fresh with mint and lemon. Serve with pitta bread and salad as part of a mezze table, or pack in a leakproof pot and eat with breadsticks and strips of raw red pepper for a great picnic dish. There are many good recipes for babaganoush, but I especially like this one which comes from "Diva Cooking" by Victoria Blashford-Snell and Jennifer Joyce. As with most traditional dishes of this type, feel free to ring the changes with the herbs and quantities.
This recipe came about because I was trying to remember the way a friend had made her asparagus. Well I was wrong, but the asparagus turned out great. Simple and so quick to make! This is just a starting point, feel free to experiment.
Forget the microwave for a moment and go back in time to enjoy a very moist, very creamy baked potato. This recipe is foolproof. (You will need heavy duty aluminum foil for this recipe). Make extra for Recipe #287747 for tomorrow's breakfast! :)
There are many variations of pebres, mildly hot or very hot, according to taste. This one is adapted from "The South American Table," by Maria Baez Kijac. You can add one finely chopped tomato to the salsa, if you like. Serve in a small bowl with grilled meat, chicken or seafood.
Asparagus with an Asian influence. This makes a delicious cold or room temperature side dish that pairs well with Oriental main dishes or any type of grilled meat.Easy to make and it can be prepared in advance. Originally from a local paper.
These are soooo good! Do not be afraid of the jalapeno, they do not end up at all spicy. (in fact, I often add more then one!)
You will never go back to boring mashed potatoes again! I got this recipe from allrecipes, and was shocked that it has not been posted here.
