THE Best Garlic Baba Ghanoush

THE Best Garlic Baba Ghanoush 0

Do you know the Baba Ganoush?

Baba ganoush is similar to hummus, but it requires grilled or roasted eggplant instead of chickpeas. In its most basic form, baba ganoush is made with eggplant, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and salt.

Both dips are native to the Eastern Mediterranean and are often served with pita bread and raw, crunchy vegetables. You can use baba ganoush as you would with hummus, a dip or a spread.

I love my baba ghanoush with LOTS of garlic! If you don't like garlic as much as I do, avoid grating the raw clove as a garnish.

Without it you'll have a more subtle (slightly sweet) garlic flavor that will make everyone very, very happy. We like to serve it as part of a trio of dips, with homemade hummus and muhammara. Accompanied by raw vegetables and pita chips, you really can't go wrong.

Baba Ganoush is much easier to do than most people think! So, are you ready to get started ?!


 

 

 

THE Best Garlic Baba Ghanoush

 

Makes 2 cups

1 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
Pomegranate arils
A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
Grilled pita and chopped vegetables, for serving

  3. Season with pepper and wrap in foil.
  4. Pierce the eggplants all over with a fork. Place the eggplant and garlic on a large baking sheet and place in the oven.
  5. Grill, turning occasionally, until the eggplant is charred on the outside and tender inside and the garlic is tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Tip: Test the cooking of the eggplant by inserting a paring knife in the center of the eggplant. If there is resistance, continue cooking.
  6. Let the eggplants cool for 10 minutes, then open them and remove the flesh. Discard the skin and place the flesh in a colander to drain for 30 minutes, stirring once every 15 minutes. 
  7. In a large bowl, combine the eggplant, roasted garlic cloves, cumin, smoked paprika and lemon juice. Use a fork to mash the garlic cloves, then keep stirring until the eggplant is broken down and the lemon juice is incorporated.
  8. Add the tahini, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and grate the remaining clove of garlic in a bowl. Stir to combine and season with pepper, then transfer to a serving dish.
  9. Garnish with parsley, chili flakes, arils of pomegranate and a drizzle of olive oil.
  10. Serve with toasted pita bread and / or vegetables.

Georgian Beet and Walnut Veggie Pate (Beet Pkhali)

Georgian Beet and Walnut Veggie Pate (Beet Pkhali) 0

I don't know about you, but I eat with my eyes first! A beautiful colorful and well-styled plate always makes me want. An aesthetic dish makes me want to taste it more slowly in order to appreciate all the taste subtleties that are there. This recipe is therefore made from red beets, in order to obtain a beautiful color that will whet your appetite! 

The earth abounds with an immense variety of foodstuffs, some of which, like beets, have such attractive culinary properties! In addition to its beautiful ruby ​​color (its color changes depending on the variety, ranging from white, yellow to red through the ranges of mauves, not to mention the marbled varieties so pretty on the plate!), Beetroot is an ally powerful for your health.

 

 

3 good reasons to eat beets

  • Beetroot helps to digest better: its high fiber content allows good intestinal transit, thus preventing constipation
  • It helps reduce the risk of cancer: beets contain betanin, an amino acid that gives beets a purplish color and has the property of destroying cancer cells and preventing the multiplication of diseased cells
  • It protects against cardiovascular diseases: its fiber and antioxidant content help ensure good heart health. Antioxidants help eliminate free radicals involved in cardiovascular disease, and fiber helps lower bad cholesterol levels, thereby reducing the risk of developing heart disease.

 

Whether you prefer yellow, white, red or marbled beets, all varieties provide the same vitamins and minerals. On the other hand, in addition to giving a bright color to your dishes, beetroot contains more betanine and therefore is the best for contributing to optimal health.

 

As I particularly like tasting dishes from other cultures, I recently discovered PKhali, a veggie pâté from Georgia, a country I didn't know! It is located in the Middle East, surrounded by Turkey, Armenia, Russia and Azerbaijan. 

This veggie pâté is a traditional dish that comes in many shapes and colors. It is usually made with different vegetables, fresh herbs, garlic and of course lots of nuts! In Georgia, it is usually prepared with beans, beet leaves and Swiss chard, but two of the most famous variations are those made from beets and spinach. These two vegetables saturated with vitamins and minerals add not only explosive flavors, but also attractive bright colors to this unusual dish.

People love to eat it with Georgian flatbread, Lavash, or spread it on rye bread, which is a more Ukrainian way to enjoy this dish.

For my part, I like to eat it with endives or with my nourishing homemade bread. Without further ado, go quickly and cook this little treat that goes well in the lunch box or serves as an aperitif accompanied by small rusks to impress your guests!

Flax tortillas in 4 ingredients

Flax tortillas in 4 ingredients 0

Many wonder how to consume fine flaxseed to benefit from its many benefits ... here is an original and really delicious way to use them! With only 4 ingredients, this flaxseed tortilla recipe will surprise you with their soft and supple texture. You can garnish them as you wish or according to your fancy, the only limit is your imagination! For my part, I love them garnished with hazelnut butter and sliced ​​bananas for lunch !!

 

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EAT FLAX SEEDS?


Flax seeds contain many nutrients that are beneficial for your health (they must be crushed to reap their benefits !!), the most important of which are:

  • Omega 3 fatty acids, also known as "good fats": they protect your heart and have been shown to be beneficial nutrients for lowering triglycerides and lowering blood pressure.
  • Lignans, flax seed is the plant that contains the most lignans, an antioxidant found in the fibrous part of flax seeds. Lignans are also phytoestrogens, a plant nutrient that could act in some way as estrogen, a female hormone. This is a very controversial topic and scientists are not sure what impact lignans have on our hormones. While some studies seem to prove that it can help fight breast cancer, others have shown that phytoestrogens do not mimic estrogen at all and instead prevent the formation of blood tumors.
  • Fiber, flax seeds contain 27g of fiber per 100g. Note that it is recommended to consume around 25g of fiber per day for women and 38g for men.

 

 

Flax tortillas in 4 ingredients 

PREPARATION TIME: 10 MINUTES
COOKING TIME: 2 MINUTES
TOTAL TIME: 12 MINUTES

 

INGREDIENTS

1 cup of organic golden flax seeds  
1 cup of boiled water
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon turmeric (or: ginger, or garlic powder or onion powder)

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a blender, add the flax seeds, mix at high speed until they form a flour. Be careful to grind well until you have flour otherwise they will not absorb the water in the recipe and the tortillas will not stick together.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil.
  3. Remove from the heat, stir in all the spices and add the flax flour all at once.
  4. Stir quickly with a wooden spoon, until the flax flour absorbs all the water and forms a ball of dough. While stirring, the dough will form, it will gradually peel off the pan to finally form a ball of dough. It takes 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Remove the dough ball from the pan and transfer it to a piece of parchment paper or a floured surface. The dough should not be too sticky, if necessary simply sprinkle a little extra flax flour on the ball.
  6. Divide the ball into 4 balls of dough of the same size. Place one of the dough balls on a piece of parchment paper or floured surface. Place another piece of parchment paper on top to prevent the dough from sticking to the roller. Lightly press the balls of dough with your hand to flatten and glue the top piece of parchment paper to the ball.
  7. Roll with a rolling pin until dough is flat but not too thin or will not become soft when cooked. Aim for a thickness of 2-3 mm. Remove the paper.
  8. Using a round shape like a plate, place it on top of the dough and cut the edges with a knife to form a circle.
  9. Remove the rest of the dough, form a ball and reuse later if desired.
  10. Place the circle of dough in a non-stick skillet previously reheated over medium heat.
  11. Bake for 1 to 2 minutes or until the edge is dry - the center should be soft - and you can easily slide a spatula under the dough to turn it over.
  12. Cook for about 1 additional minute on the other side. Do not overcook or the dough will get very crisp, like tortilla chips! It should be dry but easy to roll.
  13. Place the cooked wraps on a plate.
  14. Repeat these steps with the rest of the dough until you form 4 wraps.
  15. Serve them cold with the garnish of your choice or hot.

 

Note:

  • I suggest you golden flax seeds to have a milder taste, brown flax seeds can also be used but the taste will be more bitter. 
  • You can use different spices to vary the taste: smoked paprika, nutritional yeast, dried basil, thyme or rosemary. Simply replace the 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric with the spice of your choice!

These nutrients are essential for the maintenance of good health.
  • Since the seeds have a fairly neutral taste, they are very versatile. You can make vegetable milk, hot sauce, cold sauce, soup, and dressing from it. Not to mention, it's a great ingredient to incorporate into smoothie bowls, salads and granolas.
  • Even if you are allergic to nuts, you can still make creamy vegan sauces using sunflower seeds.
  • Very inexpensive, they are a good source of nutrients at little cost!

2 cups of water
4 tablespoons of tamari sauce
1 tablespoon of ground paprika
1 teaspoon of curry powder
3 tablespoons of olive oil

  3. Blend for a few minutes until smooth.

  • You can make a cold sauce by adding lemon juice, chopped raw onions, fresh herbs, and chopped tomatoes.
  • For a creamy texture, use a food processor.
