Reviewed Saag Paneer: Spinach with Indian Cheese

Sep 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Fantastic! Saag paneer has always been an Indian favorite of mine. I moved out of NY and now my local Indian take out doesn't have this on the menu. I'm thrilled I can make this at home. I've made this 6 times already. The paneer is so delicious AND EASY! To save time I make the paneer a day or two beforehand and keep it in the frig, just makes ...

Sep 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Delicious! I made this for lunch today. I try to use more whole grains so I made this with brown basmati. Since brown rice takes longer to cook, I cooked it about halfway, drained and saved the liquid. I added the rice to the onions as per the recipe, and after the lentils went into the pan I added the reserved rice cooking water with a bit extr...

This is really great. I changed it slightly to make it a bit healthier and also due to what items I already had on hand. I had lime instead of lemon. Since I only had 1/2 head kale, I followed the recipe and after rubbing the kale added chopped fresh spinach and tossed together. If you want a healthier slaw/salad you can use a few sprinkles of smo"

This tiramisu is absolutely delicious. The only thing I do differently is I don't use ladyfingers. I make Pan Di Spagna from Nick Maglieri's book Perfect Cakes, slice it up and use that...fantastic!"

From someone who doesn't like brussel sprouts, I have to say this recipe is great. I cut the sprouts in half and saved any leaves that fell off. I heated the evoo in a pan with a smashed garlic clove, for a few mins and discarded the clove. I tossed the sprouts in the garlic oil with the salt & pepper. (The leftover oil I used to saute the outer l"

Oh Aarti...these are fantastic!! I eat regular falafels and often thought about how dry they are sometimes. I was so eager to try these. They really are so soft and moist in the center and full of flavor! Since my grocery didn't have shallot I used two scallions. I also added just a little fresh shredded horseradish. Because I don't like mint I...

Reviewed Moroccan Carrot Salad with Parsley and Roasted Lemon

Mar 4, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I made this last night for dinner along with the Pea-lafels (also great). I love the flavors in this. Since I don't care for pine nuts, I used toasted walnuts instead. I REALLY like the tang and tartness of the lemons and the lemon oil. Next time I'll just use the lemon oil in the dressing mix and add regular evoo if the lemon oil isn't enough."
