Vindaloo Vegetables (Non-Crockpot)

This is a recipe I adapted from Robin Robertson’s Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker. This version is no longer cooked in a crockpot, and I’ve removed the oil and made some changes in how the ingredients are combined. The first time I made this, my husband pronounced it “one of the best things I’ve ever tasted”!

Khalota (Algerian Vegetable Medley)

Spicy without being hot, exotic without using hard-to-find ingredients, Khalota (pronounced Ha-Lo-Ta) is a delicious introduction to North African cooking.

Almost everything tastes better with cashew sauce! But it is high-fat, so I use it sparingly.

To celebrate, I asked Nava if I... […]
