vegetarian paratha or maybe paratha veggie burgers?

August 20, 2010

I absolutely love Indian cuisine and never got around making my own paratha. Paratha is just a pan-fried unleavened flat bread originally from the Punjab region that is popular all over India nowadays. This recipe was adapted from Prerna’s beautiful blog. Her parathas looked so tempting that I had to try them at home. I […]

stuffed sumac and mint bulgur dumplings

May 12, 2010

This recipe comes from “The Rural Taste of Lebanon: a Food Heritage Trail.” I found it appealing because I’m unfamiliar with sumac, which I’ve also seen spelled “somak,” and I wanted to see what it might taste like. The potato onion filling reminded me a lot of what you might stuff into Polish perogies. I […]

vegan aloo mutter with okra and edamame

April 30, 2010

Aloo mutter is another dish I like for lunch at Rotee Express on Howard and Spear. I like Rotee Express though invariably, they always serve their food cold. Apparently, due to a lack of space in the tiny restaurant, the food is made at their main location and then shipped over. They’re the inspiration for […]

baby fingerling potato lima sprout salad

March 31, 2010

When I was a kid I remember going to wedding parties with my mom and they always served small potatoes as an appetizer you could spear with small toothpicks. I never cared for the candies and cakes (weird kid!), but I stuffed myself with those potatoes: they were my favorite! I need to find out […]

oven-baked potato, zucchini and tomato

September 29, 2009

Potato au gratin is delicious but it packs a whole load of calories and starch. So instead of making it from just potatoes with loads of dairy, why not interspersing the layers with tomato and zucchini? That’s what we had for dinner this week with red butter lettuce dressed with a simple Dijon mustard vinaigrette […]

soup à la Skinny!

September 3, 2009

My husband teases me whenever I make a big pot of soup by calling it my “Get Skinny Soup!” I used to make a broth-type soup sort of similar to this one. I used in place of eating regular food, supposedly clean out my system and get skinny fast. However, I was looking for a […]

lemony Greek potatoes

July 18, 2009

When I invited Kevin to our recent Macedonian celebration party he immediately asked me, “Are we eating lemon potato?” I’d eaten this traditional Greek dish before but never made it. Since this was a pot-luck, he offered to make this and graciously taught me his version of this classic. It turns out that it comes […]

a homemade Indian banquet

April 28, 2009

Have you ever wondered about cooking Indian food at home? Well it’s not as hard as you think, though it does take a little planning. At this Indian dinner, I served six traditional dishes from southern India. That probably sounds like a lot and it did take a few hours to prepare everything. Fortunately, many […]
