Super Easy Spicy Black Bean Dip For Your Weekend Barbecue!

Posted on

I made this spicy black bean dip this weekend for a dinner.   It’s relatively low fat.  Gluten Free.  And Vegan.  People loved it.  Especially people who had a problem with gluten.  Several people wanted the recipe, so I told them I would repost it.  And here we are!

Enjoy!

What a wonderful and easy dish to serve up for a get together like “Superbowl Sunday”.  I love the idea of the saltiness of the cheese and the kick of the pepper.  Being from down south, we love our heat!

Spicy carrot soup with ginger, coconut milk and toasted black sesame seeds

This looks so delicious.   A totally vegan spicy soup that you can serve to anyone, and I think they would love it.

Carrots are a big hit in my family.  My son loved them.  I would sit him down with raw carrots and thousand island dressing.  The carrots were for scooping up the dressing.  We loved them in salads.  Carrot cake is one of my favorite desserts.

Carrots are good for you, full of beta-carotene.  That helps with the eyesight.  Really a problem as you get older.   You do have to be careful.  I had a friend when I was younger, who’s eyesight wasn’t all that great.  She thought that if she ate enough carrots, she wouldn’t have to wear glasses anymore.  What happened was that she turned orange.  And it didn’t help her eyesight all that much.

Recipe of the Day: Jamaican Jerk Tofu

Posted on

From Real Caribbean Food!

 

Wow!  My mouth is watering.  I am always looking for a new tofu recipe.  This is made with jerk sauce. Very Jamaican.  So I know that it’s going to be tasty.

 

Check out the site.  They have some great recipes.  This is a restaurant in NYC.  They need to move to Houston.  We could use a restaurant like this!

 

All the ingredients are easily available.  Pimento berries is allspice which you can get at supermarkets.  If you are hit by the pumpkin shortage, butternut squash would be a good substitute.

Harissa

From Good Food From The Good Life……

I haven’t seen Harissa in ages.  Jim and I love it!  I use to make it all the time.  Then we moved and I lost the recipe. 

So many uses.  I use to use Harissa as  rub on tofu.  Mix it in hummus.  When I roast veggies like sweet potato, carrots, and fennel, I would add it.  The sweetness of the veggies with the kick of the harissa?  Out of this world.

This looks like a great recipe.  I would try to get ancho peppers myself.  They worked extremely well! in the past.

I missed National Pumpkin Day!  Yikes!  It was yesterday.  Here I have been posting pumpkin recipes for over a week, and I didn’t even know.  Thanks to Boastful Food, I will know from here on in.

 

They posted a wonderful recipe for pumpkin wontons.  All spicy and creamy on the inside.  Crispy outside.  Heaven.  Even the dipping sauce looks wonderful.  Is it spicy sweet and sour?  Check out the recipe.  It looks great!

MAPLE GLAZED PUMPKIN BREAD

Posted on

From Bewitching Kitchen!

 

Fall is a wonderful time of the year!  As  a kid, there would be piles of leaves that you could run and jump into.  Haunted houses.  Bobbing for apples.  You would go to your neighborhood supermarket and see chrysanthemums put out for sale.  And there were hills of pumpkins of every size.  My mom would buy about 6 pumpkins.  Some of them would be carved up for Halloween.  Others would be split up.  The seeds would be scooped up to be roasted.  The rest my mom would bake and then freeze.

This would be used for pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving.  And there would always be enough to make pumpkin bread for Sunday breakfasts throughout the year.  This recipe looks like something my mom would have made.

Hot Sesame Garlic Noodles

Posted on

From Caro Crunch!

 

I have a confession to make.  I think that garlic makes almost everything taste better.  When a recipe says 2 cloves, I put in 4.  There is one caveat.  No garlic in ice cream or any dessert.  If you do have a recipe that garlic is an ingredient, please send it to me.  I would love to try it.

 

Garlic is also a great natural remedy.  Did you know that if you eat enough garlic on a regular basis, that your clotting time for your blood increases.  It can decrease your risk of stroke by 30%.  Garlic eaters have better cardiovascular health!

Pulled Seitan For Your Labor Day Picnic!

Posted on Updated on

DSC02220With Labor Day coming, you know that the end of summer is here. School is starting or in some states has already started. In my family, Labor Day was a time to go to the parade(I am from a big union town) and afterwards we had a picnic in the park. We always barbecued.

 

Being a vegetarian makes it a bit more difficult to be part of the barbecue. Especially in Texas. Barbecues a ubiquitous here. It’s one of our main types of celebration. Usually it’s a barbecued brisket. Sometimes you might have a hot dog day. Never a tofu pup. Or a nice boca burger. I have learned to bring my own barbecue with me. Otherwise, I would be stuck eating pickles and potato salad. I want a little more than that. Wouldn’t you? I have come up with several things. I will bring boca burgers. Tofurky makes a killer Italian sausage. I have a barbecue riblet recipe. Read the rest of this entry »
