Lentil Salad

Lentil Salad

Sitting around the dinner table and sharing a grub with good friends is one of my favorite way to spend the nice afternoon or any time of the day. It ended up being much grander then what I had anticipated. I heard the encouraging story of obedience .   I was also privileged to hear absolutely phenomenal, knock your socks off, crying tears, 180 degree turn kind of story of transformation and redemption around the table during that hour. I cannot share the story here but I am touched beyond words by what one my friend has gone through and what the LOVE OF CHRIST has done in her life. My desire to proclaim the gospel ever so gladly has only been strengthened after her story. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” ~ Romans 1:16 Conversation flowed with little bites of sweet potato chips, lentil chips, dips,...

Pepper Onion spread

Pepper Onion spread

What do you do with bunch of red bell peppers ? I love red bell peppers and I had bunch of them.It is a good problem to have but we were about to leave on long vacation and i was afraid it will wilt and go bad.So I roasted  the peppers and  froze them.You can freeze them without roasting but my oven was on, so I took advantage of it.One less thing to do later. When we got back, I remembered those peppers.I turned them into a simple spread. It is good as spread for crostini/bruschetta. We love this with grilled chicken. And when nothing fancy is available to spread on,simple cracker works too 🙂 It keeps well for at least a week in refrigerator.  You can add plum tomatoes to it while cooking, chopped basil in the end if you want to. I kept it simple and let caramelized onion and pepper shine through 🙂 Ingredients 2 roasted red bell peppers,sliced 1 medium-big onion,sliced 1 clove of garlic Salt and pepper to taste Olive oil Method...

Kale – 3 ways

Kale – 3 ways

Are you a Kale fan? Well, we are not .Not without a makeover. I keep hearing how good these green leaves are and wished we start liking it for that reason alone. It doesn’t work that way for us unfortunately.My theory is, healthy  food is healthy only if you are going to eat it, not just talk about it.So I decided to give kale a try in different ways, with prejudice, i must admit. Kale chips I have seen them at grocery store and almost bought a bag. Then I thought, I will roast a batch.It was a clear failure in our home. It left unappetizing bitter taste lingering in my mouth.I wasn’t convinced enough myself to convince my kids to try it. Wrong road. My children taste buds are not mine. How to? Simply clean and spread Kale leaves, seasons with oil,salt and paper. Roast at 425F for 3-5 mins in a cookie sheet. Keep very close eyes .Don’t brown/burn it.Once out from the oven,let it cool down. Enjoy(Well,that’s relative!) it warm...

Boerenkool Stamppot

Boerenkool Stamppot

What’s in the name? Well,if you are Dutch,you will know it immediately.If you are not, like me, then here is an explanation. Boerenkool is ‘Kale’ ; Stamppot simply means “mashed up’, potatoes being the consistent ingredient. Just like Irish has colcannon (cabbage with mashed potatoes),Dutch has Boerenkool Stamppot.If  carrots or parsnips are added instead of kale,name changes accordingly.Concept remains same.Pretty cool ha ! What inspired  ? My theory is when we are trying a vegetable or fruit, which is known for its failed record in our taste department, I go global.I research how the particular produce is enjoyed across different culture. Though there are some produce which are  grown only in set regions of the world, there are many fruits and vegetable available to us which has global presence. I learnt that Kale has been enjoyed by Dutch for long time, way before it became the talk of health town. How it is eaten in Netherlands? It is mashed with potatoes and enjoyed with sausage.Here is my version. Ingredients 3 Russet potatoes  cleaned 1-1/2 cups chopped packed kale(I chose curly because...

chilaquiles

chilaquiles

What do you do with leftover roasted chicken? Tacos, enchilada, Chalupas, Taco bowl, Casserole, burritos are some of my go to routine with leftover chicken. I remembered the taste of Chilaquilles  at my friend’s home.  I had tried making it once before in short cut way. So I tried to do it again, this time going all out way. Chilaquilles (Chila-Kee-les).It’s a mouthful to say, Isn’t it?   What I know about ‘Chilaquiles’ It is  very popular breakfast in Mexico, using day old  leftover tortilla. Fried tortilla chips are smothered in freshly made salsa. Served with Fried eggs, crumbly queso fresco and Mexican Crema on top. My husband is not a fan of eggs with tortilla in any form. You can leave the eggs out completely.I stayed with meal version for our dinner. I hardly ever fry things. So I had trial short cut run before with tortilla chips. It works but the taste is vastly different when you do fry your own tortilla. Traditionally, day old stale  dry tortillas are...
