Thai-Style Vegetable Curry

I adapted this recipe to remove the oil and cut down on the coconut milk, and I replaced the green beans the recipe called for with chickpeas. My family really loved this quick and easy, pressure-cooker dish.

Curried Split Pea Soup

Susan’s serving suggestion: I like this recipe with cauliflower added. After removing the lid, I add about 1 pound of chopped cauliflower, replace the lid, and heat over low heat until the cauliflower is just cooked, about 5 minutes. This also works with frozen chopped cauliflower.

Chickpeas in Eggplant-Tahini Sauce

In this unusual dish, my starting point has been the Tunisian kitchen, where chickpeas are a staple and tabil–a spice mix of caraway and coriander seeds plus hot Chile pepper–is the much loved equivalent of India’s curry blend.

Sweet Potato Black Bean Quinoa Burger

These were marvelous baked in the oven and put on buns with lots of rhubarb chutney and tomato and lettuce. I have not yet played with the amounts to come up with how to convert it to a “meat”loaf or “meat”balls but I bet it would be good that way.

Quinoa Vegetable Jambalaya

I found this recipe yesterday doing a google.com search for eggplant, zucchini and quinoa–the ingredients I had on hand. Anyway, I added some ingredients and took away the oil and made it last night. It made a good bit, and it was very good and filling.

      Every time my parents come to visit, I tend to make the same dishes. My mother usually requests a stir-fry, and my daughter, seeing this special occasion as a opportunity to have her favorite dish, asks for lasagna. Sometimes I cook up a Southern meal of lima beans and greens or a vegetable soup, but […]
