    AFRICAN-SOUP - A Lenten soup with beans and peanuts
    This is a soup that we eat  during  Lent.  It  came  from  a
    Catholic leaflet that unfortunately I no longer have.


    3 Tbsp    margarine
    2 cups    carrots thinly sliced
    12 cups   boiling water

ALU PIAJER CHORCHORI ( dry curried potato and onion )

Ingredients ( to serve 4-6 ) 5 medium sized potatoes, cut in half lengthwise and the sliced into 1/8" pcs. crosswise. 4 onions cut in half lengthwise and then sliced thicker than normal. 2 tsp. turmeric paste. 1/2 tsp. chili paste. 4-6 green chilies washed and slit. Salt to taste. 2 tbsp. oil. 1/2 cup water or as required.

Heat oil. When a blue haze appears, add potatoes and fry for several minutes until potatoes turn opaque. Reduce heat, add onions and continue to fry, stirring now and then for a couple of minutes more.

Add the turmeric, chili paste and salt to taste, mixing thoroughly and keep frying. Add green chilies.

The potatoes and onions should cook as much as possible in their own juices, but if the curry gets too dry, test to see how much cooking the potatoes need and accordingly add water a little at a time.

The cooked dish is dry and therefore adding of water should be judicious. The curry is done when the potatoes are cooked and there is practically no gravy.

This curry can be reheated before serving, and is a good accompaniment with rice, luchis, or porota.

And enjoy !! :-) !!

From: uflorida!novavax! (Amanda Vaccaro) Date: 21 Nov 91 11:48:53 GMT Subject: VEGAN: Amanda's Tomato Sauce Keywords: recipe vegan amandas tomato sauce

I have excellent suggestions for tomato sauce, if anyone is interested.

This method was created by me after several burning episodes:


fresh Italian parsley- no stems if possible: about a handful fresh basil: about 2 handfuls fresh ground pepper: to taste extra vigin olive oil: enough to cover the bottom of the pan sugar (OPTIONAL): about 3 tablespoons onions: 1 or two small ones tomato puree: at least two large cans (judgement call) tomato paste: one small can in case you screw up salt (OPTIONAL): a little corn syrup: only idiots like R*gu do that!! garlic: 3 or 4 cloves, sliced very thin, so they melt away

Slice onions and garlic (slice garlic any way you like, but thin is good). Pour oil in bottom of pan. Put heat on medium. Brown onions- when almost done add garlic, and brown both of them. add about 32 oz water, herbs, salt, pepper, sugar. It should be an ugly, watery greenish mixture. Let it cook for about two hours over medium heat and stir once in a while.

Cooking the watery mixture ensures that the parsley gets thoroughly cooked, otherwise it tastes "grassy".

Add puree and stir well. Cook for about an hour. If it is too watery, you can add the paste to thicken it.

You can do variations on the above: add browned lamb, sausages, chopped STEAK (no burgers!!), chunky tomatoes, or this other stuf called "Caponata", which is an eggplant and celery and olive ensemble.

> I'd like to find recipes for these three recipes. > As to the apple butter; my sister would like to make it, but none > of her cookbooks have it. A recipe on how to make apple butter > would be much appreciated.

Here's a recipe for apple butter, as found in "Joy of Cooking"

  For best results use Jonathan, Winesap, Wealthy or other well-flavored

cooking varieties.

Wash, remove the stems, and quarter:

   4 lb. apples

Cook slowly until soft in:

   2cups water, cider or cider vinegar

Put fruit through a fine strainer. Add to each cup of pulp:

   1/2 cup white or brown sugar


   1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1/2 teaspoon cloves
  1/4 teaspoon allspice
      (Grated lemon rind and juice is optional)
Cook the fruit butter over low heat, stirring constantly until the sugar

is dissolved. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture sheets from a spoon. You can also place a small quantity on a plate. When no rim of liquid separates around the edge of the butter, it is done. Pour into hot sterilized jars.

Beat until smooth. Pour into an oiled and floured pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, slightly longer in a loaf pan. This cake is even better the next day. Well, that's the recipe as it appears in The Farm Vegetarian Cookbook (more or less). It's a typical Farm Cookbook cake recipe–no eggs, no dairy, but plenty of sugar. Remarks: 1. The book specifies "white flour," but I had great results with whole wheat pastry. 2. The book says "8-inch cake pan or angel food cake pan," but an 8-inch pan is MUCH too small. As I recall, my 9-inch square pan nearly overflowed. 3. I don't remember which spice option I used. I think I mixed cinnamon with one of the other two choices. 4. Nuts and raisins are good additions. Especially nuts sprinkled on top. YUM. Enjoy! Brett Garrett ================================================================================ Date: 13 Nov 90 15:51:08 GMT From: halley! (Mary Matejka) Subject: VEGAN: Atole con Honholi This isn't a recipe. It is an interpretation of a demo a friend of mine did for me. Atole is gruel. This comes out about like thin malt-o-meal. You drink it. Incidentally, I would say that America has a love affair with vanilla. There is vanilla flavoring in just about everything remotely sweet. Now Mexico uses cinnamon alot. Even in the chocolate. And in Atole con Honholi (spelling uncertain my friend doesn't write stuff down). .5 C sesame seeds (honholi), toast in a pan til just turning golden grind in a blender until mealy, not floury 4 C water or milk .5 C piloncillo (or dark brown sugar) or to taste. This is pretty sweet. .25 masa harina (more or less, depending on how thick you want it) 1 tsp cinnamon Bring seame seeds, water(or milk) brown sugar and cinnamon to a boil. Sprinkle in masa harina (corn flour to you guys north of here)(thats *flour* not meal) and stir constantly. Add more flour if you want it thicker. Simmer for 5 minutes or so. Drink warm. The last time I made this I toasted the masa harina lightly. Gave it a little bit 'nuttier' flavor I think.

I would appreciate any suggestions. Well, I wasn't going to respond because my info is so sketchy, but I haven't seen any other responses yet: We make one from an ultra-easy recipe in the "Light and Spicy" cookbook by Barbara Gibbons (that's off the top of my head, but I think it's close). The only ingredients are ripe avocado, light italian dressing, and whole cumin seed. I _think_ the ratio is one avocado to one-half cup dressing to one tablespoon cumin. It's really tasty, but look for the book if you're concerned about exact proportions.

Nut \> roasts are a possibility but ideas run dry after that. Sure! Lots! When I grill, I like to grill my entire dinner on over the coals, everything from appetizers to dessert. Here are some of the things I've done: 1. skewered vegetables. Let marinate in Italian dressing or equivalent over night to pick up flavor. Cherry Tomatoes, chunks of green peppers, sweet onions, mushrooms, cubes of tofu (they really pick up the flavor), etc. Soak the wooden skewers overnight before using to slow down the rate at which they blacken. 2. Just skewered mushrooms. I separate these out because they are so incredibly delicious grilled that I often make them alone. Be sure to marinate them in some kind of oil-based marinade, or they dry out and shrivel up. (Try a mixture of olive oil, fresh organo, and garlic.) Brush on more of this oil as they're cooking. Be careful not to overdo it because the oil causes flare ups. 3. Eggplant. This is also marvelous. Don't bother to salt/drain it, or it tends to get too dry on the grill. I like to use the Japanese eggplant sliced quite thin on the diagonal, grill until they start to blacken, and then toss the slices in a dressing made of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, oregano, salt, pepper, garlic, dash of sugar, and dash of cayenne/red pepper flakes. 4. Corn on the cob. Take off all the silk you can, then soak it in water in the husk. Put on the grill….yum. 5. Baked potatoes. Since I hate to waste heat, I often wrap up a few potatoes in foil (wash first, and pierce skins) and set them over the coals as they're burning out. I don't know how long they really take, as I leave them overnight and they're done in the morning :-). The coals give a very interesting flavor to the potato. Something I've thought of to do at the next BBQ: wash and halve small red potatoes, then wrap them in foil with butter and onions and garlic. They should take a lot less time, and I'd imagine the flavors will blend well. 6. Tofu and fish and onions. This is a favorite of a friend…marinate them all in soy sauce and onions and olive oil, then wrap in foil with the onions and toss on the grill. This was fantastic.

Ingredients: 1 can of beans (white northern or pinto are very good) 1 onion (size depends on how much you like onions) 1-2 cloves of garlic (I love garlic so I tend to use a lot.) 1 medium sized apple 1 orange 2-3 tablespoons of honey 2-4 tablespoons of maple syrup crushed nuts (almonds or cashews are good) cinnamon nutmeg rosemary white pepper Instructions: Put the beans in a small casserole dish or small bread-baking pan. Chop up the onions and spread them over the beans in the pan or dish. Do the same thing with the garlic, apple, and orange. Then, drizzle the honey then the syrup over the mixture. Mix the crushed nuts with the spices (use enough spices to suit your taste), and then drizzle the nut mixture over the beans and fruit. Bake at 300 degrees for 1-3 hours.

This version came over the net a while ago and it's worked quite well for me… – Greg === BLACK BEAN CHILI (makes about 12-15 cups) 4 cups dried black beans 2 large red bell peppers 3 Tbs. cumin seed 2-1/2 Tbs. dried oregano (leaf, not ground) 1/2 cup olive oil 2 large onions, finely chopped 1-1/2 cups diced green bell pepper 3 Tbs. minced garlic 4-1/2 tsp. paprika 1 tsp. cayenne pepper 1 tsp. salt 5 cups crushed tomatoes 4 to 6 (or more!) fresh jalapenos, seeded and deveined, finely chopped Sort and rinse the beans, place them in a pot with ``enough'' water and soak them overnight. Drain off water and rinse, add enough new water to cover by two inches and bring to a boil. Simmer, covered, until beans are tender (about 1 hour), adding more water if necessary. Drain beans, saving 3 cups of the liquid. Return beans to pot with 1-1/2 cups of the liquid. Roast the red bell pepper under the broiler until the skin is charred, then throw it into a paper bag and close the bag. Set it aside to cool. Heat oven to 325 degrees, put cumin seed and oregano in a small baking pan or casserole and roast until fragrant, shaking pan occasionally (about 10 minutes). Heat oil in skillet. Saute onions, green pepper and garlic for 3 minutes, then add cumin, oregano, paprika, cayenne and salt. Cook about 10 minutes more, then add tomatoes and jalapenos and bring to a boil for a couple of minutes. Stir all this in with the beans. Get the red bell pepper out of the bag, peel the skin off, remove seeds etc. (After peeling, if any parts look like they got badly burned, cut them away.) Chop and add to beans. Simmer everything for a while, thinning with the rest of the saved bean liquid as desired. ================================================================================ From: Fiona Jamieson Date: 14 Jan 92 15:41:42 GMT Subject: VEGAN: Black Bean Chili References: Keywords: recipe vegan black bean chili2 Sanjiv Singh was looking for this, I haven't actually made it due to a chronic shortage of black beans in Edinburgh, but as soon as I find some … This recipe comes from "Hot & Spicy" by Marlena Spieler, a great book! BLACK BEAN CHILI Ingredients : 8oz(225g) black beans 900ml water 700ml vegetarian soup stock 500ml tomato sauce (or chopped toms) 2 tbsps olive oil 2 chopped onions 5-8 cloves garlic (chopped) 1/2 sweet red pepper (diced) 1/2 mild chilli 1 tbsp cumin 2 tbsps mild chili powder 1 tbsp oregano 1-2 tbsps salsa or hot pepper seasoning 1oz (25g) chopped coriander leaves (cilantro) Method : 1) Sort through the beans to remove any pebbles etc. Place in a large pot and add the water. Soak overnight, or boil for 2 mins, remove from the heat, cover and let stand for an hour. 2) Drain, then pour over fresh water to cover and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 1.5 hours, or until just tender. Add the stock and tomato sauce, then raise the heat and cook over a medium-high heat until the liquid reduces and thickens somewhat and the beans begin to fall apart into an ebony stew 3) Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a frying pan and saute the onion, garlic and red pepper, mild chilli, spices and oregano until the onion is limp. Add to the beans with the salsa and continue to simmer for another 30-45 mins. If the mixture is too soupy at the end of cooking then raise the heat to high and boil off some of the liquid. Take care to stir the bottom every so often so that it does not burn. 4) Serve hot, garnished with corainder/cilantro Happy cooking !

(Babs Woods) Subject: VEGAN: Black beans with stuffed green olives, and Cumin and garlic cooked cabbage I love to play in the kitchen and invent new ways to use foodstuffs up, but I also like to find new foodstuffs to work with. Well, I went away to a Retreat at the end of last month and they serve vegetarian and macrobiotic fare. This time my friend Russ was the co-cook with one other person and they made plain black beans, among some other dishes. Well, I thought I'd try them and to make them more interesting I came up with this: Babs Woods ca.

Bring to a boil and hold there about 10-30 minutes, cover. Simmer about 2 hours. Stir in the olives. (Or stir in olives about 15 minutes before serving.) This should not be soupy, nor should it be too gloppy. Watch it carefully in the last 45 minutes of cooking (30 minutes before you add the olives). Serve with rice or corn and whatever you want. Serve hot. Serves about 4. This dish goes well in tortillas with salsa, cheese, veggies; much as you would fill a taco. Serve rolled and filled tortillas on a bed of lettuce or cooked cabbage (below), topped with melted cheese, salsa, chopped tomatoes and anything else you want to add. Experiment. Enjoy! ——————— Cumin and garlic cooked cabbage 3C shredded raw cabbage (red or green) (about) 1t cumin seeds 1-2 cloves garlic 2T oil some hot water Heat the oil in a hot wok. Slice the garlic and toss it in the oil about 5 seconds or so. Add the cumin seeds, stir about 2 seconds. Throw in the cabbage, stirfry to coat well. Stirfry about 2 minutes. Add about 3/4-1C hot water or so. Cook until almost dry (it's important not to add too much water).

You might be able to find the bai toey leaves in an oriental grocery store. I've made this once, and it was very good. Black Rice with Coconut Milk 2 cups glutinous black rice 1 cup sugar 3 cups water 1/8 tsp salt 1 can (13.5 oz) coconut milk 2 dried bai toey (pandanus) leaves Wash and drain the rice. In a medium-sized pot, uncovered, bring the rice and water to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the rice is soft. Let the rice cool. In a saucepan, cook the coconut milk, sugar, salt, and bai toey leaves, uncovered, over low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Discard the leaves. Scoop spoonfuls of rice into individual serving dishes, then pour the coconut mixture on top. Serve at room temperature. If you do not eat all this dessert at one meal, you can refrigerate the rice and coconut mixture separately, then bring back to room temperature by warming at 100 percent power for 1 minute in a microwave oven. The coconut mixture will separate during refrigeration, so stir with a fork until smooth. ================================================================================ From: Date: 24 Jul 91 08:02:13 MDT Subject: VEGAN: Blackberry Jam Keywords: recipe VEGAN Message-ID: Basically I do all my jam recipes the same, making variations as I want to experiment. Crush your berries to the desired texture. If you want more of the fruit integrity, don't crush them very much. Sprinkle very lightly with some sugar so that they will start forming a juice. Measure 5 cups of fruit and juice in a non-aluminum heavy pot. Add 5 cups of sugar and mix well. On a medium to high heat (don't use a real high heat as this will scorch the fruit and leave an awful taste in the jam) bring the mixture to a good heavy boil. Remove any scum that forms. Add one package dry pectin and stir in well. Keeping the mixture in a good boil, cook until the jam has reached the jelling point. (I'm at work and can't look up the exact temperature–but to test for jelling stir down the mixture with a thin spoon such as a metal serving spoon, remove and holding the spoon at almost a straight angle down, let the jam slide off the spoon. If the last two or three drops come together to form a sheet and sheet off the spoon the jam has reached the jelling point.) Have your sterilized bottles ready along with the lids and rings simmering in hot water. Pour the jam into the jars, wipe the rims and seal. The current USDA recommendations are to process the jam in a hot water bath for 10 minutes for pints and to use the two part lids to seal and to not use pectin to seal the jars. If you would rather not use refined sugar in your jam, the best bet is to contact your local county extension homemaker agent and ask for recipes using honey. I have never tried any using honey as I don't want the taste of the honey in the jam, but I have been told by friends that you can make very good jams using honey. Sorry I can't tell you how long to boil the mixture as I live in the clouds and we have to boil everything longer than those of you who live closer to sea level. Hope this helps. ================================================================================ From: (Barry S Spieler) Date: Wed, 24 Jul 1991 14:04:46 GMT Subject: VEGAN: Blackberry Sauce (for poultry) References: Keywords: recipe VEGAN Message-ID: Spyros D.

Don't be alarmed by the long list of ingredients! This is pretty easy if you get everything measured and/or chopped before you start cooking. This recipe is based on the "Mixed Vegetable Curry" from *New Recipes from Moosewood Restaurant*, by the Moosewood Collective. The mixed vegetable curry is also wonderful, and somewhat less starchy. The spice mix I list here, in fact, is identical to the Moosewood recipe. I came up with this variation because I wanted to duplicate a favorite dish of mine, Alo Chana Massala, which I used to eat at a little Indian restaurant on the other coast. With rice, it's a meal in itself, as far as I'm concerned. (It has to be, because I learned to cook in a coop of 35 people and I can't seem to master cooking for one.) But, I digress. "Feeds 4-6" is probably valid if you're using this as a main dish. Maybe even more. It's also quite spicy, if you follow my directions exactly. (It's spicier if you ignore my directions the way I do!) Chickpea and Potato Curry ========================= Ingredients: vegetable oil, 4 tablespoons (or "as needed") black mustard seeds, 1/2 teaspoon (when I make this, I mix up 3 or 4 recipes-worth of the following dry spices at a time, so I don't have to measure them out every time I make a curry!) cinnamon, 1 teaspoon cardamom, ground, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, ground, 1 1/2 teaspoon coriander, ground, 1 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds, ground, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon garlic, minced, 3 cloves ginger root, grated 2 teaspoons onion, chopped, 1 large chickpeas (garbanzos) 1 cup dry potatoes, cubed, 3 cups tomatoes, chopped, 2 medium water, 1 cup Possible Garnishes: bananas, shredded coconut, toasted cashews, raisins, chutney, etc. Serve with: basmati rice (or other appropriate grain) Soak the chickpeas overnight (or as you normally do). Chickpeas from a can are fine too, and quicker. Heat the oil in a skillet (I start with a couple of tablespoons, then add a little more if it gets too dry along the way). Add the mustard seeds and heat them until they start to pop.* Add the rest of the spices and cook on low for a couple of minutes. Add the onions and saute until translucent.

Add the potatoes and chickpeas, stir them, and cook a few more minutes. Add the water, cover the pan, and simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

The potatoes should be tender but not completely cooked now. Add the tomatoes, stir, and cover for another 10 or 15 minutes.

Serve with rice and garnish as desired.


* A word to the wise: cover the skillet during this step; those mustard

   seeds can fly! "New Recipes" considers the mustard seeds optional; they
   seem to provide much of the hotness of this recipe.

This is misleading because you've just coated the onions with a yellow-brown spice mix, and you're more perceptive than I if you can see that they're translucent through all that! You just have to know what the _texture_ of translucent onions is like; they will soften and slide around more than the raw onions. ================================================================================ From: (Prabha Ganapathy) Date: 11 Nov 1991 15:57:02 GMT Subject: VEGAN: Chickpeas and Blackeyed Peas References: Reply-To: (Prabha Ganapathy) Keywords: recipe vegan chickpeas blackeyed peas > I am looking for meatless main dish recipes using beans as a protein > source.

Subject: VEGAN: Chinese Pickled Garlic & Lime and Garlic Olives I noticed a recent(ish) request for a method of making pickled garlic. Here's mine, based on a Sunday colour-supplement recipe of a couple of years ago. Rice vinegar is obtainable from oriental stores; don't use malt or pickling vinegar, it'll obliterate any other flavour. Chinese Pickled Garlic - ———————- * 6 heads of young garlic * 600ml (1 pint) rice vinegar * 1 teaspoon salt * 1 tablespoon castor sugar * A few dried red chilis * 2 teaspoons green peppercorns Break up the heads of garlic, and top-and-tail the cloves, but don't bother to peel them. Place them in a bowl, and blanch with boiling water; leave for a few minutes, then drain. Meanwhile, dissolve the salt and sugar in the vinegar. Pack a pint jar with the garlic, add peppercorns and chilis, and pour over the vinegar. Leave to cool, then seal tightly. Notes: - Leave for 6 months before trying !! - The skin will peel very easily. - Don't use unprotected metal lids on your jars (unless you *like* aqueous solutions of metal salts….. :-) While on the subject of pickles, here's a recipe (from the same source) for olives…. Lime and Garlic Olives - ———————- * 225g (8oz) black olives * Juice, zest and peel of 3 limes * 1 head of garlic * 1 tablespoon whole coriander * Olive oil Drain the olives, and place them into a half-pound pickling jar. Roughly grind the coriander and heat in in a few tablespoons of oil for a minute. Take the zest of two limes and the peel from the third, and add to the oil with the juice of all three limes. Thinly slice the garlic, add it to the oil, saute briefly, and pour over the olives. Fill with more oil to cover, then seal and leave for a month before eating.

Add 1 cup of flour. Mix thoroughly. cover with cloth. Let rise 1 hour, until bubbles appear. Dissolve sugar and vegetable oil in 1/2 cup boiling water. Stir well. Cool until lukewarm. Pour into yeast mixture. Add 3 1/3 cups flour. Knead dough on lightly floured board until smooth. Put into extra large greased bowl in a warm place. cover with damp cloth. Let rise until double in bulk, about 2 hours. Divide into 2 portions. Remove first portion and knead 2 minutes. Repeat with second. Roll each into a roll 12 inches long and 2 inches wide. Cut into 12 pieces (24 total). Flatten each piece with palm of hand. Roll with rolling pin into 3-inch circles. Brush with sesame oil. Indent middle of circle with chopstick. (At this point, add filling if desired.) Close dough around filling (if using); otherwise fold circle in half so that it becomes a half moon then crimp edges tightly with a fork. Place each bun on separate square piece of foil (or waxed paper) on steamer tray. Cover tray with towel. Let buns rise to double in bulk, about 30 minutes. Remove towel. Steam tightly covered over briskly boiling water for 10 minutes. (May be prepared in advance. May be frozen. Thaw out in plastic bag and re-steam 10 minutes.) * Carol.

From: (P.S.Sriram) Date: 24 Jul 91 08:07:03 GMT Subject: VEGAN: South Indian Coconut Rice Keywords: recipe vegan/coconut-rice


I saw your posting and I know of a South-Indian dish, very traditional

sort of fitting your description, that is called Coconut rice.

Recipe follows:

1) Making of seasoning powder:

First take about 10-15 red chillies, a teaspoon of Thania(Celantro) seeds, Channa dal ( I am sorry that all names are Indian, you can probably get these in any Indian Grocery store) and fry them in a pan with very little oil. Add some Asfotedia for aroma. Put about 2 table spoons of channa dal.( I forgot the quantity earlier). Then grind them coarsely on a blender, remember the channa dal should not be in whole pieces.) Keep this aside for garnishing.

2) Take a freshly broken coconut and grate them up for about 2 cups.

3) Cook white rice in a cooker, add less water than actually written in the instructions. Cook about 4 cups of it, add 6 cups of water to it. I prefer Adolphus brand Long Grain white rice.

4) In a frying pan put about 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and heat

it. Put some mustard seeds and let it burst, then add a little turmeric powder. To this add 1 teaspoon of Channa Dal and Urad Dal and fry till golden yellow. Add some finely split red chillies and green chillies as required. Then add in the grated coconut and stir for about 10 secs. Then add the rice to this mixture away from the fire and mix thoroughly. Add salt to taste. Add 2 teaspoons of seasoning mixture to the rice and stir. If you could lay your hands on some coconut oil add a teaspoonful for aroma. Garnish with some freshly cut Celantro leaves and some bay leaves.

5) This is ready to be served with chips or pickle as side dish. Or you can make come chatni by grinding finely some coconut with green chillies and celantro with water for consistency. Add salt to taste.

PS: Add 1 teaspoon of chilli powder when frying the items if you could not make the seasoning powder. Reduce the number of chillies used if you want it to be less hot. Reduce the amount of oil initially while frying if you want it less fattening.

Try this recipe and let me know the results.

  I make a strawberry/banana pie thats very simple.
2 Bananas sliced
1 1/2 qt strawberries sliced

(reserve at least 2 of the biggest ones for garnish)

Graham cracker crust
Strawberry Glaze

To save time I usually buy the crust and the glaze. But you can get the recipe for the crust off the back of a graham cracker box. As far as the glaze goes maybe someone on the net has a recipe for this. I just find it easier to use it from the store. It's mostly made of sugar. It can usually be found next to the Strawberries.

Start with the bananas and layer them on the bottom, then layer the

strawberries on top. Continue doing this until the pie is full.

Pour the glaze on top so it covers the pie and the fruit on the bottom

is covered. For a small pie just 1 jar of glaze for a large one 2.

 Refrigerate for 5-6 hours. Garnish with the strawberries and serve

with whipped cream.

  Add sliced Kiwi as a third layer.
 It is a very refreshing summer treat!

I don't know if it's German, but one of my favorite cucumber salads is

to take thinly sliced cucumbers and onions (separate into rings) and let them sit in a "dressing" of vinegar (plain old white vinegar), some water, and a pinch of sugar. (No, no amounts. As long as there's enough to cover all the cucumbers and onions.) Let sit an indefinite amount of time in the refrigerator, from 10 minutes to overnight. Enjoy.

I don't know how close this will be to what you ate at your friend's party, but this is what I make and eat as dahl. Cheap, and good too!


2 tsp tumeric 1 tsp cayanne 2 tsp paprika 1 tbsp cumin 1 cup red lentils, washed 1 medium onion, chopped fine 4-5 cloves garlic, minced oil

Boil lentils in water with tumeric, cayanne, and paprika. Meantime, sautee onions and garlic in more oil than necessary, stir in cumin. Add to lentil mixture, cook to a thick paste. Serve warm or cold with a flat bread, like pita, tortillas, or lavash.

Note: you may want to adjust the spices depending on how hot you like your food (e.g. 1 tsp cayanne may be too hot, I usually use ~ 1/2 tsp). I've also seen other recipes for this, in places like the Moosewood cookbooks, which call for coconut milk and a few different things. Enjoy…

Date: Mon, 03 Jun 91 19:12:44 GMT From: (Shaheen Tonse) Subject: VEGAN: Dahl

Here is an additional recipe for Dahl, which I feel obliged to share with you all since several people tell me it is the best dahl they have ever had. Anyway….

Ingredients: 1.5 cups masoor dahl (orange in colour).

 Vegetable oil
 3 dried red peppers
  1 tsp mustard seed   (tsp = teaspoon)
 0.25 tsp asafoetida
 1 medium onion
 1.5 tsp coriander powder
 0.5 tsp turmeric powder
 salt to taste.

Put dahl in about 3 cups water and let boil. It normally takes about an hour for the dahl to break up and pulp, however what I do is to start soaking it in water before I leave for work. This way it takes much less time to cook when boiled later. (gas, electricity SAVINGS!!)

Spice Mixture: (To be added when dahl is about 80% cooked or even earlier if you like) Slice the onion into thin slices. Heat the oil in a frying pan, when hot, add red chilies and mustard seeds. After seeds pop, add the asafoetida, and immediately turn down the heat. Add the onions, start frying on low heat until they are "transparent", then turn up heat until they are quite brown, but not burnt black. Add coriander & turmeric and turn down heat. After a minute, add about 0.5 cup of the boiling dahl mixture to the frying pan and stir energetically so that the spice mixture gets mixed well, and onions break up.

Pour it back into the dahl pot, add salt, cook for another 10 minutes or until dahl is done, whichever comes later.

Eat with rice, and tastes good with Patak's Garlic Pickle or Patak's Prawn Balichow on the side.

One of my favorite lentil dishes is Dahl, I boil equal amounts of brown rice and (green) lentils with 2.5 times as much water, an onion, and whatever spices I feel like (curry is especially good) for ~45mins. This is good served hot with some steamed veggies or as a bases of a non-meat loaf. If you have red lentils I would suggest using white rice since the cooking times would match better.

I also use lentils homemade soups since they don't have to be soaked overnight.

Subject: VEGAN: Dal and Achar References: Keywords: recipe vegan dal achar

Here are two basic recipes:

Basic cooked dal

Use about 1/2 cup dal per person; you can make lots and freeze some. Spread dal on a dishtowel and sort over for pebbles. Some imported dal is really dirty. Place in colander and rinse well. Set in a bowl of water to soak for at least half an hour or as long as overnight.

Saute chopped onion in some oil; use about 1/2 - 1 onion per cup of dal. Add finely grated ginger (1 tsp or more per cup of dal) and pressed or chopped garlic (at least 4 cloves per cup of dal–I use more). Saute about one minute, then add dal, some tumeric, some salt, and lots of water. Simmer until dal is very tender–cooking time will vary. The resulting mixture should have the thickness of thick, lumpy gravy (sounds yummy, huh?). If you like, after the dal is all cooked, add a *tiny* amount of tamarind concentrate.

The dal is, and is supposed to be, not all that spicy. It usually accompanies a spicier dish. For simplicity, you can serve it with just spicy pickles and rice.

Achar (peppered radish)

Ingredients: Daikon radish cooking oil salt tamarind yellow mustard seeds cumin seeds tumeric red pepper (cayenne or crushed red pepper)

Wash daikon radish and cut into big french-fry shapes. In a large pan, heat a small amount of oil. When hot, add a couple of tablespoons of yellow mustard seeds. These will start to crackle and pop. Let them

pop for about 30 seconds, and then add a couple of teaspoons of cumin seeds. These will crackle too; watch carefully to see that they don't burn. Lower heat slightly and add radish, a sprinkling of tumeric, a very small amount of water, a dash of red pepper, a little salt, and quite a bit of tamarind. I use about a tablespoon for a couple of pounds of radish–we make this in quantity. Stir until ingredients are well mixed. Cook until radish is just heated, but still very crisp. Radish should not be limp or soggy. Serve hot or cold. Yes, you eat the seeds, too.

My husband says you can make potatoes this way too, but the potatoes need to be cooked all the way through. I would pre-cook them in the microwave to speed things up.

I selected these recipes because I think the techniques and spicing fairly are representative. The cook-seeds-in-oil trick is common, as is the garlic-onions-ginger mixture.

Don't be shy with the spices, but be aware that black pepper gets hotter as it cooks longer, and too much tumeric can make food bitter.

Lastly, here is a great recipe for salsa sauce which I got from a Californian friend of mine (Lynne Deal) recently.

4 *large* tomatoes - *ripe*, peeled, seeded + chopped (see below) 1 tablespoon seeded, finely chopped *hot* peppers 2 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro 1 small red onion, finely chopped 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar (or lemon juice) 1 teaspoon salt

To peel tomatoes, immerse in boiling water for *less* than 1 minute, then plunge into ice water and the skin will slip off. Squeeze out seeds, chop.

Balance of ingredients is according to taste, especially the chilis. Try *lots* of cilantro and garlic and add chopped red and green sweet peppers.

From: Date: 5 Aug 91 18:48:23 GMT Subject: VEGAN: Diane's Eggplant Keywords: recipe vegan/dianes-eggplant

Here's a recipe that takes some time, but well worth the effort.

1/2 bushel of hot red peppers 1/2 bushel of red and green sweet peppers 1 head garlic (that is the entire head, not one clove and use a very large head) fresh mint–about a good colandar full–washed and leaves removed from the stem olive oil approximately 1/2 bushel medium to medium large eggplants

clean and seed the peppers. clean the paper from the garlic. wash the mint. remove the leaves from the stems. Pass the peppers, garlic and mint through a meat grinder on medium fine grind. Set aside. *they will begin to form juice which you should drain before using*. This

can be done a day ahead before using and then refrigerated or you can do this right before using the mixture.

wash the eggplants, remove the stem and blossom ends then slice into 1/2" slices. Alternately layer the slices of eggplant and canning salt on a large drain board–either one with holes in it or one that slightly slants. You don't need too much salt–just sprinkle a little bit on each slice. Then place a large board on top– large enough to cover all the layers of eggplant and place a heavy on top of the board. I use an 8 quart pot filled with water. The eggplants will begin to *weep*. Let them sit like this overnight or about 24 hours. Remove the weight and the board–the eggplants should be pressed thin. Use a paper towel wipe off the excess moisture and salt.

In a heavy pan, lightly fry each slice in the olive oil. Don't use too much as the eggplant really absorbs the oil.

In a heavy crock make alternate layers of fried eggplant slices and the pepper mixture. When the crock is about 3/4 full, cover all with a good virgin or extra virgin olive oil. Cover with a lid that will fit inside the crock and set a weight on the lid so that a little oil comes over the lid. Store in a cool dark place and they will be ready to eat in a few weeks.

If you would rather not store them in a crock, then alternate the layers of eggplant and pepper mixture as before but in a baking dish. Place two stacks of eggplants/pepper in a small freezer bag and some

extra pepper mixture and freeze. To serve, take them out of the freezer about 4-5 hours before using. Gently pull the pieces apart as they thaw. Then cover with olive oil and a little garlic salt or salt and peppers to taste. They will absorb more oil as they sit. Add more if you wish.

These are great. They are tangy but not hot, even when we have used peppers that actually caused blisters on our hands when cleaning them. They're great as a meat condiment, part of a relish try, mixed with tomato slices and used as a salad. My husband and I like to make sandwiches with them and some salami. If you are looking for a different taste, use cider vinegar instead of the olive oil to cover the eggplant as this slightly pickles them. When ready to serve drain however many slices you want to use then mix them will a small amount of olive oil and some seasonings. A great salad.

I'm sorry I'm so vague about how much oil to use or how much mint. this is a very old family recipe, my great-grandmother made these and I'm well over 40. We really eyeball the amounts and adjust the garlic and mint according to how strong they are.

I hope you enjoy

(Verbose, designed to guide the novice through the steps).

Dosai (South Indian, Pancake-like)


3 cups of Texas long grain rice 1 cup of urad dal (available in Indian grocery stores).

  (Buy the polished kind, not the unpolished one with the outer black layer)

salt to taste (about 2 tsp)



Soak the rice and the dal separately, for about 5 hours (soaking longer won't hurt, I usually soak it in the morning, go off to work, and grind in the evening.) Grind the rice with sufficient water until it is a smooth paste. (I use my osterizer and run it in 3 batches, the amount of water used to grind is somewhat crucial, using too much will make the result too watery, while using too little will make it hard to grind and too thick. I usually put in the rice and add water until it just reaches the brim of the rice, this will seem like too much, but it will work out fine once the rice is ground. I then run the osterizer on MIX until the rice is broken and then run it on LIQUIDIZE until the rice starts to become a paste. If required, add just a little more water, perhaps a few tablespoons. Touch the paste between your fingers to feel the texture. It should be smooth).

Now grind the dal in two batches. (The amount of water here is not as tricky. Traditionally this would be ground in a stone grinder by hand. The dal needs to be ground while slowly adding more water from the top of the osterizer. When ground, the dal has the tendency to fluff up, this tendency must be encouraged by adding only a little water at a

time while stirring and continuing to grind. The dal should double in quantity after grinding, while the quantity of rice would have remained unchanged.) Now mix both the pastes with the salt in a dish that is at least a third bigger in size, allowing space for the dough to rise. (Quite commonly, the dough runs over for me, so I put it in a larger dish than worry all night about overflowing dough). Leave for about 8 hours in a dark warm place. I usually leave it in the oven overnight and occasionally turn the oven on for a minute or two, to keep the air inside the oven at a warm temperature.


The next morning, if you have done all this, the dough is ready to be transformed into dosas. Use a heavy cast-iron griddle (a flat non-stick pan will do, but sadly lacks the taste that comes from the iron pan). Heat the pan until a few drops of water dropped on the pan sizzles away Take a deep ladle full of dough and drop the dough in the middle of the pan, then with a deftness that comes with practice, quickly swirl the dough away from the middle until it is spread evenly in a circle around the pan. You must do this quickly because once the dough cooks, you cannot spread it and the result will be lumpy. Take a teaspoon full of oil and spread it around the edge of the dosai. Wait a minute or so, until you see the edges browning and insert a flat ladle that has sharp edges under and all around the dosai, until it is released completely

(Bewarned that, using a well-scrubbed pan won't let you release the dosai easily. To prevent this, you might want to rub a little oil onto

the surface of the pan before spreading the dough.)

After releasing the dosai, flip it around on the other side and put another teaspoon of oil around the edges. Wait a minute or two until it is cooked and remove from the pan.

Before making the next one, use a small piece of paper kitchen towel and rub any excess oil off the pan.

(This whole procedure sounds tedious, but its not too hard after you've done it a few times. Incidentally I make dosa every week. The dough will keep in the refrigerator for a week or more. If the dough starts to get sour, cut small pieces some green chilis and onion and add to the dough before cooking it. This can be done even otherwise, for a different flavor and variety.)

To eat:

Break a piece of the dosa and dip it into the dosa-molaga-podi or the samber (recipes to follow) and pop it into youir mouth.

Enjoy. If you do try to make this, send me email if you have any further questions.

A powdery substance that is traditionally eaten with dosai or idlis.

Dosai Molaga podi (Literally translated, "Dosai Chili Powder")


1/2 cup urad dal 1/2 cup chana dal asafoetida (a little) tamarind (dry or fry it also) (cannot use the paste) 1/4 cup coriander seeds to taste ( I found 1/4 cup a little too much,

                                  reduce slightly)

jaggery (little bit) (molasses?) salt (to taste) red chillies (to desired taste) 1/4 cup sesame seed (preferable the white kind)


Fry til in a dry pan, and the others in a little oil separately, until red (don't wait until it gets too dark). Powder all ingredients finely and the two dals slightly coarsely and mix all together. Note on the amount of red chilies to use– I usually fry and grind red chilis separately (this needs to be done with sufficient ventilation in the kitchen), and then keep adding this to the mixture of the other

ingredients until desired level of heat tolerance. I can always use any leftover in other recipes that calls for red chili powder.

Note: This makes a batch that you can keep around for a few months.

     Store in normal air-tight glass bottle or plastic container.

How to eat the dosai with this:

Add a little oil to a little podi and mix, the dosa in then dipped into this oil-podi mixture, to smear it with this mixture and then popped into the mouth. Using the fingers is the preferred way here. (This is not unlike the way the Ethiopian bread Injera is eaten).
