Curry Mash Potatoes

This recipe adds curry to mash potatoes. It makes a great side to any meat dish. Go ahead, give it a try!

Easy Indian Curry Eggplant - Baigan Bharta Inspired

Mashed Curry Eggplant is another Indian dish that my family loves.  It works great as a dipping sauce for breads, as a vegetable side or as a filling for quesadilla or roti.  Making it is not as difficult as I thought.  Start the process by baking the whole eggplant in the oven to and start a curry in the pan, then put the two together.  Because of this dish, my husband buys eggplant every chance he gets.

Kale And Leek Stirfry

I have been cooking with kale for a while now, and this is my favorite way of preparing it - cut thinly and stir fried with leeks.  Leeks impart a sweetness to the kale and complements it perfectly.  This dish works well as a vegetable side to any dish. 

Korean Gochujang Salad Vinaigrette Over Roasted Broccoli.

GoChujang (Korean hot fermented bean paste) is quickly becoming one of my favorite condiments in the kitchen.  It has such complex flavors - rich, salty, sweet and spicy.  In this vinaigrette, I add vinegar and sesame seed oil to round out the many flavors of GoChujang.  I have used this over roasted broccoli or a simple lettuce/cucumber salad.  Feel free to add to any of your favorite vegetables, roasted or not!

Oven Roasted Zucchini Salad

Oven Roasted Zucchini Salad is a fresh way to serve zucchini.  I made this zucchini dish as a side to Paprika Lime Pork Chops and the two flavors complemented each other perfectly.

Potato Salad

A creamy side dish which goes well with any grilled meat.

Roasted Greek Lemon Potatoes

This recipe is based on the Greek lemon potatoes recipe but with a little bit of spiciness to it.. Makes a great side.

Spicy Curry Hummus

Spicy Curry Hummus brings the delightful flavors of Indian Curry and Hot Peppers to Greek Hummus. My family really enjoys this as a spread or as a Hummus dip.

Spicy Sweet Red Pepper Spread

With oven roasted sweet peppers, zucchini and leeks, this recipe makes a sweet and optionally spicy dip for pita or nacho chips, or a flavorful spread for sandwiches, tortilla wraps or quesadillas. Great for a picnic, a quick lunch or an appetizer.

Sweet Mustard Mashed Potatoes

On our last visit to Germany, I found a new condiment in the grocery store - Sweet Mustard.  Being without my regular spices to work with, I added the Sweet Mustard to Mashed Potatoes.  My family enjoyed the meal as a side to Currywurst Sausages (without the Sandwich).  Now back home in North America, Sweet Mustard is not an easy condiment to find = so I add the sweetness to my favorite mustard to make the mashed potato recipe.  We have it as a side to Paprika Lime Pork Chops or Jamaican Jerk Chicken.

Tikka Masala Shakshuka

Shakshuka is a breakfast of eggs poached in tomato sauce common in Israel.  Being one who favors spice, I thought the eggs would go well with the creamy and spicy tomato-based Tikka Masala.  It can be a breakfast, lunch or dinner, served with a light salad and bread.  Here is my version.
