I was walking through the grocery store and wanted to make some type of seafood. I was thinking either Halibut or Salmon, but then I saw scallops!
Scallops are very delectable and low in both calories and fat. Most people avoid shellfish because they are generally high in cholesterol. They are a good source of potassium (cardiovascular health), magnesium (blood pressure), and phosphorus (important for strong teeth and bones).
I needed to make a dish that was fast, easy, and very tasty. I came across a recipe that was for asparagus in sun-dried tomatoes, but decided to substitute that with portobello mushrooms since it was all I had.
Moroccan tagines are clay or ceramic cookware that have a very unique design used in North Africa. They are earthenware pots that are painted and glazed with a distinctive conical cover.
Although they are originally referred to as a tagine pot in which the dish is cooked, in Arabic, tagine means stew. Now tagine can refer to the dish, as well as, a type of stew. Tagines are generally spicy and have some type of protein incorporated. Vegetarians of course can eliminate the meat option. I have made this dish vegetarian.
I wanted to try a new international recipe the other day…something different but similar to Indian food. Something that was nutritious, flavorful, and simple, but wonderful! I came across a version of the Turkish Red Lentil Soup with Chard that had a small twist to it and tried to put my own little spin on it.
Thanksgiving is a time when we appreciate what we have. Not saying that we shouldn’t appreciate what we have everyday, but that we take that one day, that moment and spend it with family and close friends! Everyone gets together to enjoy savory meals and luscious treats! It is where we take one day to celebrate diversity in its purest form and what better way to do that then with a huge feast!
