Fruited Tofu Curry Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
This is a very versatile recipe! It can be made sweet or savory. I planned to make this as written, but for some reason as I was preparing it, I wasn't in the mood for the curry. So I left it out. I figured I'd take it to work for lunch the next day,but I brought the shaker tin of curry with me in case I wanted to add it in then. I also had some for a snack, and added a little honey and cinnamon... Was great considering the cranberries and walnuts . I discovered it's a great breakfast / snack .... So Ive also made this and added a container of a premix blend of nuts, seeds and dried fruits that I got at my healthfood store along with the other ingredients. So much better than just yogurt and granola.... And the protein packed tofu makes it a great breakfast that will hold you over until after lunch time!!!!! I'd like to try it with mint, apples, maybe pears and ginger. You really can add anything to it. I know I'll make this every week.

Spicy Indian Dahl

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
This was a great recipe.... Whether you consider it a dahl or a soup ( I actually like my lentil soups think). It's very simple to prepare, there is the chopping of the onions and the mincing of the Ginger, garlic and cilantro, but I let my mini food processor do that ! I used a large can of WHOLE tomatoes including the juice instead of fresh.I did cut them in large chunks. ( I don't like canned diced tomatoes as they tend to disintergrate to quickly) . I used double the cilantro. The color was bland, so I added some turmeric that a prior reviewer suggested. I didn't use naan. I actually served this in mini whole grain bread boules. I made a tray of condiments and things for my guests to add on their own.... Jalapenos, yogurt, fresh peas, baby shrimp , cubed chicken, more cilantro, chick peas, quinoa. My family and guests really liked being to add what they wanted and adjusting the amount of cilantro and jalapenos. I served lime and mango sherbert for desert... Light and refreshing ending! I'll make this again and again. I froze leftovers in individual containers... I always make a double batch. Freezes great for a great lunch, side dish, dip, or dinner again . You'll love it.

Thai Fried Bananas

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
I found this recipe is perfect, read the directions, you add the liquid a little at a time until you get the thin consistency needed. Almost like cream. It's not supposed to be thick !!!! Ive been to Thailand many times and this is popular street food and often made in Thai homes. The batter is supposed to be very very thin.... Just a sheer coating to yield a veil of sweet crispness, to accent the sweet banana, not over power it. If you want something with a deep fried thick batter, you may want to try a corn dog instead.

Gobi Aloo (Indian Style Cauliflower with Potatoes)

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
I did like this recipe. But I agree with others it is a bit dry looking. But I didn't find that a bad thing neccesarily. It did seem a bit overspiced and a little bitter, so I added a large can of stewed plum tomatoes. I also added some chick peas to it at the end and served it with grilled haddock and quinoa. It was great. The next few times I made it, I waited until all the other spices were incorporated as directed, EXCEPT the ground cumin. I discover it's the amount of this that determines if the dish became bitter or not. Too much kills it. I also topped it with the cilantro, and a few fresh grean peas. Was restaurant worthy! Everyone loved it, and my son asked me to make it when he came home to visit . That's an ultimate compliment from my uber green organic eating son!
