Apologies for the long gap between posts. Still recovering from my “post-surgery incident”. Still using yoga and food to help with that . . . and improving, slowly, but surely.
Last week I dined on my “Naked Fish Tacos” . . . which are basically pan-grilled fish coated in a chili powder rub served over rice and beans. My favorite spicy bean recipe can be found here. I topped it all with an avocado mayo that I mushed up. Yum! (These fish tacos are now a regular part of my menus and were inspired by the recipe here.)
For the past few days I’ve been wanting Ethiopian Food, so last night I whipped up Doro Wat (Chicken Stew), Mesir Wat (Spiced Lentils), and Spicy Green Beans (actually an Indian recipe, but reminds me of spiced green beans I used to get from an Ethiopian place).
I was reminded that in many cultures around the world, the signature dishes are already gluten-free, corn-free, and dairy-free. I may not be able to travel to these places in person, but I can explore them through food. I hope you will too!
[Guilty Admission: I did cheat on my diet last night and ate store-bought injera bread, which in the US contains wheat and barley, rather than just teff. I tried to make gluten-free injera, but was not successful. Based on the bloating in my stomach after dinner, I’ll probably have the leftovers with rice instead . . . 🙁 ]
