I've been looking for a simple and flavorful way to cook these, and after a lot of research I found and adapted this delicious recipe.

Homemade Refried Beans

Homemade Refried Beans by John Spottiswood

I'm ashamed to say that though I LOVE refried beans, this is the first time I've ever made them myself. It's just so easy to buy them in a can, or at a mexican restaurant, that I haven't bothered. But this recipe is simple and it is definitely worth the effort in my mind. I figure my kids are the true test, since they aren't that…

Armenian Red Lentil Balls - Vospov Kheyma

Armenian Red Lentil Balls - Vospov Kheyma by John Spottiswood

Traditionally, Kheyma is a made with meat (raw beef patty). However, during Lent many Armenians prefer Vospov Kheyma as a vegetarian alternative. Our friends the Bedrosians brought these over as an appetizer last night. He said it was a bit spicier than his mother usually made, but we all thought they were perfect. If you want less…

Black-Eyed Peas with Coconut Milk

Black-Eyed Peas with Coconut Milk by Mihir Shah

I adapted this from a recipe I found in the San Francisco Chronicle. My parents have told me that eating Black-Eyed Peas for the New Year was good luck. I made these for my New Year's Eve party and they were a big hit. Went really well with the Steamed Salmon I prepared.

Alton Brown Lentil Soup

Alton Brown Lentil Soup by John Spottiswood

I adapted this recipe from one by Alton Brown. I added spinach, potatoes, and scallions and removed grains of paradise. Our whole family really enjoyed this recipe. I made it alongside an Indian curried lentil soup recipe, and while both were good, this was the hands down winner. If you're looking for a tasty, hearty, and healthy…

Hummus

Hummus by Frosted Flaker

This is a great snack for any time of year. I personally serve it with Kalamata olives and sometimes even diced cucumber and/or bell pepper. Keep in mind that after blending, fine-tuning the mixture with slightly more tahini and/or lemon juice is often needed (see step 3). As a footnote, tahini is what gives the hummus its creamy…

Cuban Black Bean Soup

Cuban Black Bean Soup by Kimberly Lindstrom

It looks like a lot of ingredients, but the second half of the ingredients list is optional toppings. I just use whatever I have on hand, cilantro, sour cream, cheese, whatever! This is a super yummy, super easy, super cheap soup. It freezes well, and the "toppings" idea makes it great for a crowd... everyone can customize their…

Mangoob or Mangoub (Moroccan Fava Bean Salad)

Mangoob or Mangoub (Moroccan Fava Bean Salad) by mamatkamal

This is one of the most popular Moroccan salad called Mangoob, and it is mostly served as a side dish, and usually accompanies fish tagines, or fried fish, along with some nice home-made bread. It's a combination of fava beans, garlic, parsley/coriander, and cumin in a rich fresh tomato sauce with a touch of lemon. Absolutely…

Italian Chick Pea Soup

Italian Chick Pea Soup by John Spottiswood

Chickpeas are one of my favorite ingredients in soup. They don't lose their texture or their nutty flavor. Whether in a spicy Harira (served during Ramadan) or in this mild flavored Italian soup, Chickpeas make soup both nutritious and delicious. This soup has been popular in Italian homes for over 1000 years, and it was…

Gujarati Dal

Gujarati Dal by Mihir Shah

This is comfort food my mom has made for as long as I've been around. She's been able to hook my kids on it; Dal is a healthy way to get protein into their diet. I serve it with some rice and yogurt. It also holds its flavor really well as a leftover snack.

Kidney Beans (Rajma) Masala

Kidney Beans (Rajma) Masala by Padma Priya Manikam

I never used to like red kidney beans maybe because of the way some people had made it for me. So after learning that it is healthy to include kidney beans in your diet, I decided to adapt my own recipe.
