Roasted Rutabaga Wedges

Most of the recent recipes that I’ve made from Thug Kitchen 101 have been full meals – Tomato Carbonara, Mujaddara, Red Curry Noodles, Barley Fried Rice. But today, I am switching things up. This week’s recipe is a simple side dish: roasted rutabagas. Now, you may be looking at the picture and thinking that those…

Chickpea Noodle Soup

I know it’s almost mid-May and the weather is getting a little warmer, but I still love a nice hot bowl of soup. It doesn’t matter if it’s summer or winter, I will always enjoy a steamy soup. Today’s recipe is such a classic recipe too which makes it better. This is Chickpea Noodle Soup…

Leek & Barley Fried Rice

Happy May! If you’ve subscribed to my email newsletters, you should have received the May edition this morning. I hope you enjoyed the content and recipes I included in this one!

Red Curry Noodles

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love curries. I’ve made many before, both Indian and Thai and they are always delicious. Today’s curry is a Thai one with noodles, tofu and lots of veggies. This is my Monday recipe from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. I think I’m partial to Thai curry…

Sweet Potato Muffins

It’s Friday! We’ve made it to the weekend. It’s time to relax and take it easy. Why not do a little baking. How about some muffins? I made these sweet potato muffins, recipe from Feel Good Foodie (link here). I’ve made all kinds of muffins before with a variety of fresh ingredients like apples, bananas…

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…

Sun Dried Tomato Carbonara

Happy April! Also Happy Easter and belated Passover to all those who celebrate/celebrated! There are so many celebrations today. I took last week off to enjoy Passover with my family and give myself a chance to relax a bit. But I am back and I have lots of good content that I will be posting…

Instant Oatmeal Smoothie

You know I love oatmeal. You can find a lot of oatmeal posts on my blog (a mix of my own recipes, as well as ones from online and cookbooks). Also, it doesn’t matter whether it’s hot or cold, I can’t get enough of it. One thing that is newer to me though, is adding…

Winter Veggie Slaw

Happy Monday! I can’t believe March is already half over. I’m here with another recipe from the Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. This is the Winter Veggie Slaw with Caramelized Shallot Dressing. The coleslaw mix was supposed to be a combination of green and red cabbages, fennel and carrot. I made a few changes. I omitted…

Swiss Chard & Tomato Linguine

Welcome back for another “Bad Manners Monday”, where I cook a recipe from the Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. This week I made this Swiss Chard & Tomato Linguine with Balsamic Glazed Chickpeas. It’s quite the long title, I know. This was a tasty pasta dish though. Like the title implies, this recipe had linguine, swiss…
