From Madhur Jaffrey's Step-by-Step Cooking. The recipe calls for lamb, but I used beef and thought it tasted fantastic. I didn't have black cardamom pods. I also substituted crushed red pepper flakes for the whole peppers. I used much less oil than called for and added 1/2 cup of beef broth for extra liquid.
This recipe is a variation on the Simple Sugar Cookies recipe from the King Arthur Flour Baker's Companion. It makes a great cookie. I used dry buttermilk powder - 1T and 1/4 cup water. I added the dry powder to the shortening/sugar mixture and then added 1/4 cup water. I added the sugar and flour by weight rather than by cup measurement.
This is a fabulous recipe from www.101cookbooks.com! I put it together in less than 10 minutes using pre-cooked lentils. You can use any variety of beans. I used one can of chickpeas and one can of canellini beans. I mixed some spinach into the salad just before I added the dressing.
This is a super easy salad dressing I found it in Everyday Food. It's suprisingly creamy given that there's no cream, buttermilk, or mayonaise in it. I highly recommend it. It's easily doubled or tripled as well.
This is a simple Ecuadorian steak dish. According to Laylita of www.laylita.com/recipes (where I found the recipe), this is traditionally served with a fried egg, rice, French fries, ripe plantains, a small salad, avocado slices and hot sauce. Posted for ZWT 2008.
A great dish. I loved the spices and mixture of sweet and savory. This recipe is from the September 2007 issue of Cooking Light. It's easy to put together and tastes terrific! The saffron adds something special. You can find it fairly inexpensively at Trader Joe's.
This makes a wonderful, light meal with a Japanese influence! I found it in Heidi Swanson's terrific cookbook, Super Natural Cooking. If the vegetables are pre-chopped it goes together quickly. Don't worry about the long ingredient list. I'd recommend putting salt and pepper on the tofu as it's cooking. We loved this dish!
