Mixed Fruit Soup

Posted on

This recipe says to use honey and sour cream, but it works fine if you use agave syrup as I did, and replace the sour cream with either non-dairy yoghurt or a nut cream.

Red Cabbage Juice

Posted on

So many people start the new year with new resolutions, like going to the gym or juicing. Not me, I try things any time. The juiceĀ  I’m presenting today is something I tried in October.

The taste of this was surprisingly good (especially given my dislike of cabbage), although I added a few drops of liquid stevia to it. Unfortunately I don’t have a juicer and my blender left rather too much pulp for me to actually drink it as a smoothie. Instead I had to put it in a strainer and extract the juice that way.

Berbere Black Lentils

Posted on

Here’s the recipe.

As a stew, this dish has a lot of flavor, but not a lot of variety of flavor. I simmered off the liquid and served it in a wrap along with lettuce and garlic sauce. (The garlic sauce was made from a handful of soaked cashews, a clove of garlic, salt, and parsley.) The combination was quite good.

Greek Potatoes and Peas

Posted on

Potatoes and peas are cooked with onion, garlic, dill, lemon juice and wine in this recipe. (Be sure to get a vegan wine if you want the recipe to be vegan.)

Ginger Lemonade

Posted on

I was inspired by this post, but I didn’t really follow the recipe. Instead, I sliced some ginger and boiled it in water for 10 minutes, then strained it. When the ginger water cooled, I squeezed in some lemon juice, diluted it with a bit of fresh sparkling water, and sweetened it to taste with a mixture of agave and stevia.

Rose Lemonade

Posted on

Rose lemonade is refreshing on a warm day. For one tall glass, use a few tablespoons of rose syrup, a couple tablespoons of lemon juice, and chilled sparkling (or still) water. Mint can be added to garnish.



Fatoosh Revisted

Posted on

This is an extra post because I’ve written about fatoosh before. The hot weather has me reaching for some familiar favourites. Now is a good time to remember all the wonderful summer dishes I haven’t eaten for months. I’ve been making pita bread to eat with all sorts of dips, and this is how I used up one leftover bread, for lunch.

Giant White Beans (in the style of Ful Mudammas)

Posted on

Here’s a recipe for ful mudammas. I substituted giant white beans for fava beans to save myself a bit of work peeling.

Harak Osbao

Posted on

I worked from this recipe, but I substituted vegetable stock for the chicken stock, and used green speckled lentils instead of brown lentils.


Char-Grilled Greens

Posted on

I modified the recipe, using only one type of bean and opting for snow peas instead of shelling the peas. I didn’t have sorrel so I replaced it with spinach.
