Coconut-Curry Lentil Stew Served over Quinoa
About this Cook
I like to knit and cook. We are a gluten-free household and we like to eat vegetarian the majority of the time.
My favorite things to cook
GLUTEN-FREE! Indian, Asisn, Mexican, and healthy variations of American Southern foods. I also have an unhealthy obsession with brownies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We ate a lot of beans and cornbread when I was growing up, so it's sort of my favorite comfort food.
My cooking triumphs
When we were newlyweds, I tried really hard to make lots of impressive dishes. I made pierogis, homemade pasta, and my husband really liked my chocolate-Guinness cake.
My cooking tragedies
I wasn't thinking when I made banoffee pie for a summertime picnic, and the whipped cream was completely melted by the time we got to the park. Everyone at it anyway, but it looked horrific.

Miso Soup
Absolutely delicious. I made it almost exactly from the recipe, but I doubled the quantity and added shitake mushrooms. We couldn't get enough of it. I made some onigiri to eat with it, to add a little bulk, and had a nice, light-but-satisfying meal. I will be making this alot (especially considering that the only package of dashi I could find was HUGE) Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.

Coconut-Curry Lentil Stew Served over Quinoa
I made this again recently and added a few tablespoons of fresh ginger. It really improved it. Is it lame that I gave my own recipe five stars? Ha ha ha.

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce
I had to make a few mods. I didn't have tomato sauce so I reconstituted a can of tomato paste with water and a spash of wine. I added a tiny bit of molasses to offset the bitterness of it. I also didn't have good quality chili powder so I just used what I had, and it was still fantastic. I am going to order some proper chili powder and definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing.
