Indian Chole Aloo Tikki

Rating: 4.5 stars 50
This is a delicious vegan Indian recipe where vegetables and chickpeas are served over small potato cakes. It works well as a starter for four, or as a vegetarian and vegan main for two. Place the potato cakes on a plate, serve the chickpeas on top, and don't forget the sauces! Recipes for Indian sauces - coriander sauce and tamarind sauce - are on this site. Finally, sprinkle with some fresh coriander leaves and a few thin slices of fresh onion.

Moroccan Mashed Potatoes

Rating: 4.5 stars 36
These creamy Middle Eastern-style potatoes are flavored with turmeric and use olive oil rather than butter. They are great alone, and for fillings in puff pastries. Amounts of salt, pepper, and other spices may be adjusted to taste.

Chana Masala (Savory Indian Chick Peas)

A fragrant blend of herbs and spices make a delicious spin on chickpeas.

Chickpea Curry

Rating: 4 stars 726
We usually recommend preparing the beans at home, but using canned chickpeas allows for a fast, convenient dish.

Cream Corn Like No Other

Quick, easy, and delicious, this creamy, cheesy corn dish is a family-fave!

'Anything Goes' Easy Black Beans

Rating: 3.5 stars 6
Quick, healthy, and tastes good. Top with sour cream, if you like. Serve over rice or let it stand alone. You can also add just about anything else to this, that's why it's 'anything goes.' Add browned ground beef or turkey for a meaty, almost chili-like main dish. Garnish with diced hard-boiled eggs. Add chopped olives. Sometimes, I add cooked peas. I love the leftovers with scrambled eggs for breakfast; it's great the second day and in tortillas for lunch.
