Red Lentil Soup

Posted by on Sep 16, 2013 in Soups | 0 comments

This soup is ridiculously simple to make, and is delicious, comforting, and healthy. Red lentils are wonderful to use for quick soups because they’re cooked through in a matter of minutes. Of course, you’re welcome to use homemade vegetable broth and hand-diced tomatoes, but in the interest of convenience and speed, I’ve used packaged versions of these ingredients.

Tahini Coffee

Posted by on Jul 28, 2013 in Beverages | 0 comments

I can’t remember where I acquired this recipe, but it’s a warm comforting beverage that is named “coffee” for its appearance, not its flavor. It’s flavor vaguely reminds me of those Bit O’Honey candies I used to eat as a kid. It’s a great drink to give a child to make her feel like the other grown-ups drinking their coffee in the morning. I don’t know if the original recipe calls for added sweetener, but I add just a a touch, because I have a...

Basic beans and rice: a humble dish that is nonetheless satisfying, healthy, and delicious when lovingly prepared. Sofia loves it (as she adores beans), and anything easy to prepare that is healthy, and that pleases the girl is a winner in our house. Here is my basic black beans rice recipe — most of the ingredients are optional, except for the onions, rice and beans!  I generally use white rice (though brown rice would be healthier — I simply haven’t found a way to cook...
