I thought I would share some recipes I’ve tried out recently. I’ll include the link (just click on the name) as well as any adaptations I made to the recipe. As a disclaimer, I’m only endorsing the recipes.
*I didn’t have any Great Northern Beans, so I substituted that with a bean called “Job’s Tears.” This wasn’t the best substitution as “Job’s Tears” beans are extremely glutinous, but by adding water and olive oil I was able to get the hummus to a good consistency and it tasted great!
*I made two changes to this recipe. First of all, I only breaded one side of the eggplant slice and then I baked the slices in the oven for about 15 minutes instead of cooking them in a skillet.
*We jokingly said the only thing that was missing was the crispy wrapper. Definitely use all the cabbage recommended in the recipe, and go easy on the red pepper flakes.
*The craving for a pork-and-sauerkraut meal was too much, so I decided to see how hard it would be to make my own sauerkraut. This turned out to be extremely easy. One rainy family day I decided to put the pork and sauerkraut in the crockpot and we enjoyed the smells all afternoon – and the dinner too!
