Healthy and yummy black bean burger - a big hit in our family. Can be made GF by substituting bread crumbs for Gluten Free bread crumbs or blitzed corn crackers, or vegan by omitting the egg. Place in a bun and enjoy with all your favourite toppings.
In our home, we love to build bean bowls served in a hand glazed pottery bowl. Start with picking a grain such as quinoa or rice and add a half-cup of cooked or canned beans of your choice, toss some leafy greens on, add sautéed onions, shredded carrot, avocado and mushrooms, then top with feta cheese and pumpkin seeds. Next add your choice of seasonings and dressing such as fresh lemon vinaigrette, balsamic vinegar, ginger miso or chipotle ranch, and dive in! Try out different toppings and combinations each time for new fun flavors. We never tire of these bowls!

I love Cuban music, Cuban dancing and all of the Cuban food that I have tried to date. So, I was more than happy when a Latin American restaurant opened in town, where I first ate black bean cakes. In keeping with the Cuban theme, since I have made savory pies with a toasted rice crust that I think is delicious, I decided to serve the corn salsa in a baked rice rowboat. Just don't ask me to dance the salsa...despite lessons taken at the local college, it isn't pretty!

I first ate cassoulet from a Weight Watchers recipe...then I ate it at a French restaurant nearby. No comparison! This recipe falls somewhere between the two extremes, though hopefully, at the tastier end. However, if I ever discover what makes the authentic restaurant version just a little bit higher up the scale, I promise to update this recipe so we CAN CAN all enjoy it!
A simple yet unusual rasam recipe featuring the tasty 'murungaka' meaning Drumstick. Usually used in the richer 'sambar' this is a light, tangy and refreshing Rasam, enjoyable with hot rice and ghee! A staple for me to ask my mother whenever I visited home from college, and now a frequent staple at my own home!
Seriously. Best shawarma imho is from a tiny little spot on Main Street in Vancouver, BC called Mitra Canteen. The friendly dude always greets you with a "Hey guys!" and whips up the yummiest shawarma with homemade hummous and extra hot sauce (if that's your thing), and those yummy crispy burny crunchy chickeny bits that can't be beat. We haven't found any other spots locally that compare, this guy knows his shawarma!
Grandma frequently made kluski, but not often enough, according to the family! They wanted it for every meal, including Christmas. I used to make it while I was going to college, but I substituted bacon for the pork shoulder. That was when I learned, from my great-aunt, that bacon is cheating! Unfortunately, there are those in the family who haven't fallen for kluski's charms. My husband refers to it as "fish bait". Oh, well, more for me!
This mixed vegetable curry dish is tasty, quick and easy to prepare.
Try sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes. Broccoli can substitute for cauliflower. Left over curry is delicious.
Keep covered in a bowl, and refrigerated for 2-3 days. Enjoy!
