Chickpea and Cauliflower Curry


You've heard me raving about the Chickpea and Cauliflower Curry from Gainesville, FL's Buddha Belly. This is the real McCoy! I can't tell you how many times I've tried to imitate it. I think part of the trick is BB's tempura cauliflower. Anyway, it's delicious. If you look in the Vegetarian Zoo Reading List, you'll see several recipes to try. It's sooooo… Continue

I went through my patch and did some serious weeding before hitting the road last month for the west coast. I predict the collards, cabbage, chives, potatoes, and mint have been culled by Eric, my kimchi making friend. At… Continue

Jalapeño Days at the McRorie Community Garden

There's something about hot peppers, especially jalapeños, that just makes me feel great. It all goes back to my days growing up in the Southwest. Peppers are such a part of the culture in Mexico, Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Colorado (to name just a few places) that its impossible to ignore them. You just get involved to one degree or… Continue

Ethiopians have exquisite food. It’s more than just nutrition. It’s culture. It’s friendship. And, it tastes great. My Ethiopian friends at The Nile amazed the guests I brought to their restaurant on another visit. My friends couldn’t believe I had only been there once before. We were greeted so warmly. The food was so good. We ate with our right hand, using injera, the pankake like bread made from teff, a nutritious gluten free grain. And, I came… Continue
