Corn Fritters

Quick, simple and delicious! Made from pantry ingredients, these Corn Fritters were a hit. All three of my boys gobbled up them up at dinner time. I was literally fighting off grabby little hands while I tried to grab a quick picture for this post.

Tortilla Soup

This delicious Tortilla Soup was part of our regular winter dinner rotation for many years. We first tasted this soup on our honeymoon in Belize, though it’s generally considered a Mexican recipe. This is a vegetarian version of Tortilla Soup with all the same great flavours! Top with baked tortillas and your favourite Mexican toppings.

Paneer and Peppers

This quick stir fried Indian dish is perfect for a weekday dinner. Paneer and peppers makes a simple, yet delicious combination that cooks up less than 15 minutes! I like this dish with a good amount of heat which is complimented by the mild flavour of paneer, and cooking the peppers until they’ve just begun to soften adds a nice sweetness.

Simply Spicy Cabbage Sabzi

I simply love good bitter flavours brought to life with salt and spice! This Spicy Cabbage Sabzi is a perfect answer to my craving. The addition of the fresh green cilantro really freshens up the dish. Similarly, the quick squeeze of lemon gives it a nice kick of acid adding brightness and balancing out the earthy bitterness of the cabbage and spices.

Indian-Style Egg Rice

Egg Rice is a go lunch or dinner that my mother-in-law makes for my boys using leftover rice. It cooks up quickly in the pan with just a handful of basic ingredients. Served with yoghurt, it’s a great way to introduce some basic Indian flavours.

4 Praises of Canned Tomatoes

Tomatoes. My one real food dislike. There’s something about the acidity of fresh tomatoes that has been a turn off for me …

Glass Noodle Salad

A home version of famous Korean Jap Chae, this Glass Noodle Salad is a quick a delicious crowd-pleaser! Korean inspired, this Glass Noodle Salad uses sweet potato vermicelli, simple sauteed vegetables and a quick dressing of pantry staples.

Besan Chila (chickpea pancakes)

Besan Chila (chickpea pancakes) are thin, spiced pancakes often served with yogurt as an Indian breakfast food. We love them for a quick and easy kid-approved dinner!
