Burmese Vegetable Curry Recipe

May 27, 2016 | by Annie | vegetables, sides, bread

This Burmese-style vegetable curry is subtly flavored with coconut milk, ginger, curry powder, and turmeric. The flavor of this dish is exotic but not overpowering. The vegetables listed in this recipe are what I used when preparing the dish for this post, but any of your favorite fresh vegetables can be substituted.

Armenian Tahini Bread Recipe

| by Annie | vegetables, sides, bread

I have grown to appreciate tahini over the past couple of years. I love it in hummus and sauces, and I also have a pretty great tahini cookie recipe. So imagine my delight, while working on an Armenian menu for my book club post on The Sandcastle Girls, when I came upon tahini bread. I couldn’t wait to bake a batch of the tahini-filled sweet yeast breads flavored with cinnamon and topped with toasted sesame seeds. Delicious!

Armenian baked goods are quite a treat and these cookies, called mamoul, are no exception. The egg-shaped mamoul is stuffed with a nut filling, baked to a light golden brown and dusted with powdered sugar after baking. These cookies simply melt in your mouth.

| by Annie | sweets

Kanafeh is a creamy, rich Middle Eastern dessert made with shredded phyllo and two cheeses. A sweet syrup of orange blossom water, lemon juice and a pinch of saffron is poured over the warm kanafeh, followed by a sprinkling of pistachios. Take my word, this is one special dessert!

Traditional Mansaf Recipe

| by Annie | main dishes

Mansaf is the national dish of Jordan and I can understand why. This Bedouin dish is fantastic and is a compliation of several recipes plus my own tweaks. Mansaf is served on a large serving platter over khubz (Arabic flatbread) and rice. It is meant to be eaten communally, as part of a social event. Guests gather around the table and enjoy mansaf, eaten with the finger tips of the right hand.

Red Cabbage with Caraway Seeds Recipe

| by Lisa | vegetables, sides, bread

This colorful dish has a tang from the vinegar and a sweetness from the honey. It tastes better if stored in the refrigerator overnight to let the flavors meld.

Hungarian Spaetzle (Dumplings) Recipe

| by Lisa | vegetables, sides, bread

Traditionally to make spaetzle, you place the dough on a wooden board and hold it over the boiling water as you cut strips off. It is a very messy job. It’s well worth the effort, but next time I am going to use a spaetzle maker.

Paprikas Burgonya (Potatoes and Sausage) Recipe

| by Lisa | main dishes

Paprika is a common ingredient in Hungarian cuisine. Red onions, garlic, as well as a type of sour cream are also used in many dishes so I combined them here to make this potato and sausage recipe.

Roast Beef with Tatties and Neeps Recipe

| by Lisa | main dishes

Tatties and neeps are Scottish for potatoes and turnips.  The amount of veggies in the recipe are just guidelines. You can use as many as you wish, as long as they all fit in the pan (or just put them in a different pan like I did with the roasted carrots that I served with this dish).

Norma’s Lasagna Recipe

| by Marilyn | main dishes

My hat goes off to Norma. I have never made a lasagna recipe with cinnamon, but the cinnamon combined with the cheeses and tomato sauce gives this dish a spicy sweet flavor that tingles the tongue.
