Ingredients to make the potatoes

Bring the potatoes to a boil in a large pot.  Once boiling, add the seasonings, onion and other vegetables, reduce heat and simmer covered for about 25 mins.  While boiling, take the cashews with soaking water and blend until smooth.  After the 25 mins, stir the cashew blend into the pot.   (*Drain any excess water prior to adding cashew blend).   Add the peas and beans and simmer for another 5 mins or so.

Grilled Sweet + Sour Tofu “Shrimp” Recipe from Australia

I am always looking for ways to take great recipes and make them healthy.  This adaptation is from the Grilled Shrimp served at the Australia booth in this year’s Food & Wine Festival.  All the ingredients are healthy and while I will eat seafood on rare occasion, I wanted to try an alternative.  I did a lot of research and found that tofu can be a viable alternative. I have never worked with tofu, but now is the time to give it a try.

Vegetable Moroccan Tagine Recipe

Inspired by a visit to North Africa and of course, my countless visits to the Moroccan pavilion at EPCOT I have always been curious about cooking in a tagine.  Thanks to my wonderfully thoughtful daughter, I now have the opportunity!  She gave me this beautiful tagine for my birthday purchased from Sur La Table.  For those not familiar, a tagine is a ceramic or clay slow-cooking pot popular in Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. The bottom is a wide, circular shallow dish used for both cooking and serving, while the top of the tagine is distinctively shaped into a rounded cone.  Tagines are traditionally heated over charcoal and eaten communally.  Diners gather around the tagine and eat by hand using pieces of bread to scoop up the vegetable and sauce.
