Recipe for Moorish-Style Chickpea and Spinach Stew

Moorish-Style Chickpea and Spinach Stew Stew

I listen to NPR every day on the way home from work. Because of the economic recession, they were doing a piece on how to feed your family of four with only $10. To me, cooking cheaply is always a win. Especially something yummy. This chef told a wonderful story about how his wife made this for him when they were first married. (And he was probably less famous and making less money.) I find it’s always encouraging to cook if I hear more about how wonderful this dish is. Jason really loves this dish.

Lentil Soup

As a vegetarian, lentils are one of my favorite non-soy sources of protein. They are incredibly flexible; however, the staples, like this Lentil Soup, are still wonderful classics. Almost every culture has a version of lentil soup. Serve it up with a good piece of bread and you’ve got a good meal.

Savory Indian Sweet Potatoes

I love this dish because it’s both sweet and spicy at the same time. Plus, really easy to make. Did I mention, delicious? The texture is really similar to mash potatoes, but so much better.

Cream of Poblano Soup

Jan 5th, 2009 Posted in Main Dish, Soup | 4 comments »

I love this dish. It’s spicy and hearty. I usually make it a little thicker by adding more corn tortillas, and it makes a great dip for tortilla chips. It’s really the kind of meal I can just eat and eat.

The original recipe calls for chicken, which I just substituted for some pan-fried tofu.

Aloo Chole

Jason and I love Indian food and we’re always looking for new recipes to try. This reicipe, originally from Chef Henry’s Chop Onions, Boil Water, is tasty and hearty. His recipe recommends serving with naan or roti bread. I’d love to find some other dishes to prepare with it in order to serve at a dinner party.

Cauliflower and Potato Curry

Nov 19th, 2008 Posted in Main Dish | one comment »

Jason and I both love Indian food, so I’ve made it a goal to better learn how to cook it. I tried a recipe for Cauliflower, Potato, and Pea Curry, minus the peas because I’m allergic to them.

Overall, we enjoyed it, but thought it could be a little spicier. The recipe is relatively simple and quick to make. Serve with rice.

Spinach Enchiladas

Nov 16th, 2008 Posted in Main Dish | no comment »

I’m a big fan of Enchiladas. I grew up on my mom’s enchiladas, but now that I’m a vegetarian, I have to search for non-meat alternatives. I even held an enchilada off with her before her wedding this summer: my eggplant almond ones vs. her chicken ones. But people were scared of eggplant. Yes, it’s a purple vegetable, people, a delicious purple vegetable.

And in trying something different, I made this spinach enchilada, based on this recipe. While the original recipe was low-fat, I added a bunch of cheese and made it bad for you. But delicious. It was, however, really runny and messy to eat. When re-heating, I added rice to soak up some of the juices.

Lentil and Veggie Nachos

Nov 16th, 2008 Posted in Main Dish | no comment »

These are extremely yummy and healthy for you. Way healthier than say nachos from a bar. This is based on a recipe from The Better Homes and Gardens: The New Cookbook. Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures before they were devoured by me while I was watching House.
