Recipes I've Shared:

Red Lentil and Garlic Soup

This soup is great topped with toasted cumin seeds for a flavorful crunch, a sprinkling of lemon juice for zest or even a handful of peeled, cubed potatoes tossed in while boiling the lentils. Or you can keep it simple and just enjoy the tender, smashed cloves of garlic melting against your tongue, meaty lentils and a little spicy heat to stir your senses.

Very Sesame Hummus (no garlic)

Hummus for the garlic haters of the world (aka my husband). This packs a punch and the garlic is not missed....only by me =(

Avocado Aioli

Creamy and garlicy - as a dip or spread

Green Beans Thoren

This side/salad is served cold or at room temperature. It was first introduced to me from friends with a love of Indian food ~ a love I now posess.....acually I am obsessed with it.
The sweet coconut and hot chile balance well with the beans.

Roasted Garlic White Beans & Kale

High fibre, high protein, meatless meal that is easy on the wallet and big on taste! Can be made with less red pepper flakes and less fat....

Erna's Turkey Lentil Soup

Sweet, sweet leftovers!! Swapping lentils in for some of the rice in a regular recipe makes this a protein power house. The added fibre doesn't hurt either. I actually used home-made turkey stock but the nutritional info wasn't available.

Coconut Mango Sticky Rice

A traditional Thai-Lao sweet. Often eaten as a snack, dessert, or as we like it, for breakfast.
Keeps well in the fridge to eat as needed (and you will NEED it)


Incredible! (1 rating)
Homemade Tahini (Sesame Paste)

A homemade toasted sesame paste when you live in the backwoods and don't want to go to town to get Tahini....
