Mujaddara

Happy meatless Monday! This week’s Thug Kitchen 101 recipe is a new one for me. The dish is called Mujaddara which is made with rice, lentils and caramelized onions. Those are the big components and they are seasoned with lots of fragrant Middle Eastern spices. It was quite an interesting recipe to read through because…

Chicken Fried Rice

Happy monday! If you’re subscribed to my e-newsletter, you should have received the April edition in your inbox earlier today.

Recipe #66: Roasted Cherry Tomato & Brown Rice Risotto

Risotto. It’s one of those things that seems so difficult to make because it is so labour intensive. However, this recipe proves otherwise. This risotto recipe actually starts on the stove then gets baked in the oven. I know it’s not traditional but it turned out sort of well for me. I still would like…

Recipe #39: Chickpea Tikka Masala with Green Rice

I love indian curries. I don’t usually make them too spicy but they’re so flavourful because of all the different spices. This chickpea tikka masala was perfect in that regard. It was seasoned so well and made the house smell incredible. Another reason I love indian curries is the coconut milk. It adds so much…

Recipe #42: Curried Coconut Rice

If you saw yesterday’s post (Recipe #41), you know I actually made this rice to go with that chicken. Like it said in that post, these recipes went really well together. This rice had a nice coconut flavour and was super creamy, so it was tasty on its own, but it was also delicious with…

Rice with Veggies, Meatballs and Greek Salad

This was a really nice and well-balanced dinner. So the rice was just cooked in vegetable stock, then I added kale and peas for colour (and salt, pepper and chili flakes). The Greek salad was tomato, red pepper, kalamata olives and feta cheese with a simple dressing – red wine vinegar, honey, salt, pepper, oregano….
