Aug 25 - Heritage Orca Beans Rajma


Bobs red mill had these interesting Dalmation dog like beans on sale at my local store, black and white, they were labeled as Heritage Orca Beans, yep w.r.t a reference to the markings on a killer whale. Never to miss an opportunity to try a new ingredient, I used them in the best way I knew how. - Rajma. the beans were softer than the regular red kidney beans , but has a soft creamy quality that was perfect. The color was rather dark though, so it was hard to highlight the spectacular design on these legumes once the dish is cooked.

Aug 22 - Roasted corn and black bean tacos


Taco shells can be a very versatile ingredient to keep at home if it weren't for the fact that they can be fragile.

Its a great way of getting kids to eat cool & healthy in the same meal!

Aug 21 - potatoes and poblano subzi



One of the summer bounties I look forward to is the profusion of chili pepper varieties that flood the market and sometimes the simplest of dishes is transformed into a memorable meal just by tweaking the ingredients. This was a simple potato dish that included fire roasted poblano chile peppers in the mix. Potatoes,  stewed with the poblanoes, fresh finger, a mix of crushed cumin and coriander. Finished with fresh cilantro and a spritz of lime.
