Brenebon soup (red kidney bean soup) is a Manado (North Sulawesi of Indonesia) recipe adopted from the Dutch from their colonialism period. It has become the family recipes from generations, even now it is considered one of the best grandma's soup, that flavor of cloves will get anyone down with a fever feel better! The surprise is not only brenebon can be enjoyed as soup for rainy days, it can be enjoyed as shave ice for hot and sunny days. The texture of kidney beans goes so well with the smoothness of avocado and the sweetness from pandan-scent-brown sugar, and the mountain of crystal shaved ice ? It's like having magical snow and the ethnicity of tropical land into your mouth.
It’s so important it is to know what is in our food and have control over what we put into our bodies. Cooking the whole food way doesn’t have to be time consuming or difficult. I wanted to illustrate how simple it is to cook dried beans from scratch. I created storybook style characters both to engage the viewer but also to reinforce that message of simplicity. Also a fun and healthy way to introduce children to cooking.
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!

The Great Northern bean soup was always my father's favorite. I think it reminded him of his midwestern roots. I wanted to share this recipe (modified as a vegetarian version) and honor the farmers and that grow our food and the story of where it comes from. This scene harkens to those sweeping fields of beans grown in the heartland of America.

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!
I have fond memories of eating this salad growing up in Moldova, especially during the holidays. The Russian Vinegret (Vinaigrette) Salad is a pretty much staple at any gathering during the New Year's celebrations. It's a delicious vegetarian option, packed with veggies and beautiful color given off from the beets.
BORSCHT is a winter soup.
It differs from other soups by presence of Red Beetroot.
In the summer, BORSCHT can be vegan, but in the winter it is cooked in a fatty bouillon or with pieces of bacon (also a cabbage, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes or tomato paste, sweet pepper, herbs, onions, garlic)
To prevent the beets from losing their red color, it is better to rasp a cooked one at the end of cooking ( or marinated beetroot).
Add sour cream for taste!

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!
As I drew this, I was a little taken aback by the emotions that came over me. My grandma was, simply put, an amazing person. She was also a really great cook! It always amazed me how she could put perfectly assembled meals together in, what seemed like, such an effortless way. She made carrot soup for me a bunch of times when I lived with her in high school. No matter how tough of a day I had, I’d walk in and the smells whirled around me like a hug and reminded me that I was “home”. It was so delicious and I loved that she made it just for me. She gave me her recipe but, sadly, I can’t find it anywhere - I really hope one day I stumble upon it. Anyway, I found out later that she actually didn’t even like cooking at all, it always makes me laugh because I was certainly fooled. I also always imagine that if she could do something she didn’t even like doing with such grace and perfection, just think what she could’ve done with something she was truly passionate about. When I think of her now, I remember how much she loved my art, even when I made ridiculously awful drawings in high school, you’d never know it by her reaction. She’d tell me, “don’t forget to sign it, I want proof that I knew how talented you were before everyone else did.” I always knew she was incredible, but I didn’t always realize that having that kind of support and encouragement for your passion was as special and, sadly, as rare it can sometimes be. I’m so lucky to have had her in my life.
