Lentil & Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Having a family member going through chemotherapy has lead me down this trip of researching foods and fruits based on whatever mineral or vitamin that she is found to be lacking. Boosts in food rather than falling back on supplements are always healthier.  The last few recipes had been to find simple combinations that could help boost her potassium and magnesium counts in preparation for … Continue reading Lentil & Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Masoor Dal /Indian Red Lentils

Masoor Dal or split  Red Lentils is a popular Indian dish. Healthy and hearty, cooked the right way with the right ingredients. A good source of fibre or protein substitute.

Romesco Sauce

I was under the impression that the Romesco Sauce was of Italian origin not knowing that it originated from Catalonia (Spain) and had been created to be served with fish.
