Wow What a difference good dried beans make. I was given a wonderful gift pack and have been having fun trying out new recipes with them. I think I made up my own category with this variety of bean as I didn't see it included in list but it should be !
I met and marriage my wife over 7 years ago and life has never been better for both of us. My favorite meal that she learned from her mother is her Beans on Rice recipe. The big secret that makes it taste so good is the coconut milk that she adds right at the end. Yum, so good, I always go back for seconds!
Channa is a traditional Guyanese dish using the humble and familiar chick pea or garbanzo bean. This dish hails from the Indian influence in the Guyanese culture and was a recipe passed from my great grandmother, to my grandmother and then from my mother to me. We always say, if you're going to eat channa, make sure everyone else in the room is as well. That way you can to ensure you're not the only one experiencing it's pleasurable flavour and also its familiar legume side effect - bad gas!
This easy to make hummus recipe is a tasty addition to any meal or snack. Hummus originated in the Middle East, and has been a favorite in my family for years. That's why I selected this recipe for the Global Cuisine Design Challenge.
I grew up eating lots of delicious Korean food in Los Angeles so of course I love kimchi. I've been making it at home for years, mostly since I lived in Europe and couldn't find it readymade in the shops. This is the recipe I "follow" but to be honest I'm not much of a measurer! Traditional recipes vary a lot, but usually they add rice flour. I always forget to buy it so I never use it! Vegetarians and vegans can leave out fish sauce and add extra salt. I use this recipe for other veggies like green onions and root vegetables too. Enjoy!
This is something my dad usually makes when I visit him. My parents are divorced so this was such a treat when he cooked this for me. When he was young, he had to go to the compulsory army service. This is the food they usually made because it was easy and cheap. Over the years he has adjusted it to his liking and has shared the recipe with me, but I never can't get it to taste the way he does it. However, every time I eat this whether it is made by him or me, I'm reminded of my dad and all those weekends I spent with him.
Favourite Food Memory: When my sister and I were little, we were allowed to choose a special dinner on our birthdays. Every single year we asked for the same thing: Mum's cheese fondue! Buttery, garlicky goodness (and a mountain of cheese!). It might seem a strange choice for a child but we absolutely loved it. The first person to loose their dipped item in the gloop was widely ridiculed, and the whole performance was wrapped up with a fight over the crispy bit burned onto the pan. My favourite fondue vessel has to be either crusty baguette or broccoli (honestly, it's soo good). This is my mum's original recipe, which took a while to find because my sister had stolen the book! So clearly this is still a much cherished (and hoarded) family recipe. Thanks Mum!
