Ghormeh Sabzi, a Persian chicken stew cooked with fresh herbs, turmeric, dried Persian limes, and red kidney beans. My dill & lima beans rice (previous post) was the perfect accompaniment for this dish. But really, any pilaf would be just as good.
I love Indian food and I love cooking. My fav of the season is tradition #Ayurvedic dish called kitchari. There is no I dean market near me and it's hard to find one spice that usually is used in the #kitchari#recipe called #asafetida or hing ☘️ finally I found a recipe without this ingredient 👍🏽
If you like cooking try it out. Not only it is super tasty 😋 it is also very good for your body during fall and winter time 🙌🏼 The recipe is from @SivanandaYoga #Centre in #London .
1/3 cup split yellow mung beans
1/3 cup basmati white rice
1 tablespoon of ghee or coconut oil
½ tsp cumin seeds
½ tsp black mustard seeds
2 Tbs minced fresh ginger
1 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp ground coriander
1 cup chopped mixed vegetables (or more; any kind eg. broccoli, carrots, zucchini etc)
5 - 6 cups water
½ cup chopped fresh coriander leaves
Salt & Lemon 👇👇👇
You know when you are eating a super crunchy salad and someone starts talking to you and you have no idea what they are saying because the sound of your crunchy salad is taking over the world? And then you pretend to know what they said and you nod and smile and then you realize they asked you a question and you have to fess up that you only pretended to hear them? No? Just me??
Okay well even if you're a better person than I am and don't pretend to hear people when you actually can't, I'm still 100% positive you are going to LOVE this salad.
Fresh shredded cabbage, cilantro, jalapeno, peas, topped with butter-baked ramen noodle and toasted almonds!
Pair it with some @gortonsseafood fish filets and dinner is done. Its SO good, you guys have to let me know if you try it! Tag #thefoodcharlatan ! #ad
Tonight's dinner was wrought with me bit having the ingredients listed and messing up various steps of the recipe, but in the end things turned out quite good! ( I feel like there's a metaphor for life in there somewhere...)
Behold: skillet chicken with cilantro-lime sauce ( find the recipe here: https://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2015/07/08/skillet-chicken-with-creamy-cilantro-lime-sauce/) with some lovely cilantro-lime rice (for which the recipe can be found here: https://life-in-the-lofthouse.com/cilantro-lime-rice/). I ended up misunderstanding some steps with the chicken, and added red bell pepper and later the necessary red pepper flakes- Also, I ended up having to use greek yoghurt in the sauce instead of cream, and salted butter instead of unsalted as the recipe requires. I think the yoghurt turned out fine in the sauce, though it could have been a liiiiittle more creamy, but definitely try to use UNsalted butter!
All in all, it was still a success.
Cool fresh weather, and additional moisture is more common at this time of the year and makes it a great time for one more crop. It is also a great time to assess your garden to see which tomato, squash, bean or radish performed best for you this year. Make a few notes for spring so you don’t forget which ones you would prefer growing. ⠀ ⠀
Most people think gardening comes to an end now but actually there is still some time to use up some of that left over seed from spring planting. ⠀ ⠀
It is probably too late for beans or onions, but is a GREAT time to sow some salad greens like #lettuces , mustard greens, beets for greens and #radishes will all appreciate the nice warm soils and cooler temperatures of #fall . ⠀
Something we have found works very well is #Cilantro . Direct seed some Cilantro and it will produce some of the nicest and most productive #plants that keep on growing way into early winter. Fall planted Cilantro does not bolt but just keeps making excellent foliage. If you have a glass bell jar, you can put that over the top of the plants and keep on picking up until Christmas.⠀
Don’t forget FALL IS THE TIME TO PLANT GARLIC CLOVES IN YOUR GARDEN! Buy your garlic from a farmer’s market, and not the store (as many times the #garlic from the store has been treated to prevent it from sprouting). Separate the garlic into individual cloves and plant them in a sunny location about 4” apart and 2-3” deep (larger cloves a bit deeper). They will make new roots this fall and freeze up until next spring when they will be one of the first things to begin to grow.⠀
A great time to use up those empty spaces in your garden from early harvested plants.⠀
Warm soils and cool air makes fall a great time for also planting #bulbs , #trees & #shrubs to get a jump on #spring , and watch for our great pricing and shipping specials throughout the fall season. #ProPlantTips
