Prep Time 15 minutes

Author Mama Nature’s Bar & Grill Recipe Book

Ingredients

  • 1 package pasta
  • - linguini or angel hair
  • ½ 15 oz. can coconut milk
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 4 Tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 6 mushrooms
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger
  • 1 hot pepper optional
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp tamari or shoyu
  • ½ cup water
  • 1-3 tsp Buddha Shake Curry Mix™
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Finely chop the garlic, ginger, scallions and hot pepper. Thinly slice the carrots and shrooms. In a saucepan, steam the carrots, shrooms and peas in ¼ cup of water and a shot of Bragg™, for 10 minutes. In a separate saucepan, sauté the scallions, garlic and ginger in the sesame oil for 5 minutes on medium heat. Add the coconut milk, tamari, ¼ cup of water, curry powder and hot pepper. Simmer on low for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, start to cook the pasta. Add the peanut butter to the coconut milk sauce and mix well. Cover and lower heat to low. A splash of red wine in the sauce wouldn’t hurt things. When pasta is ready, strain and add the sauce and veggies.
  • When is pasta ready?
  • Option 1: Throw pasta against the wall- if it sticks, it’s al dente.
  • Option 2: If your child is acting up, take a noodle and wack him upside the head with it- if it sticks, it’s dinnertime. (feel free to substitute husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, & mother-in-law for “child”).

THREE BEAN CAJUN (or curry) CHILI

Course Main
Cuisine Cajun or Curry
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Servings 5 -6
Author Mama Nature’s Bar & Grill Recipe Book

Ingredients

  • 2 15 oz. cans kidney beans
  • 2 15 oz. cans black beans
  • 1 15 oz. can navy beans
  • 2 15 oz. cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 8 oz. package of tempeh or meat
  • 3 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 3 bell peppers
  • 2 medium yellow onions
  • 1-2 Tbsp vegetable or olive oil
  • 2-3 TBSP Mardi Gras Shake™
  • Or Buddha Shake Curry Mix™
  • 2 Tbsp Bragg™
  • 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • Cheese optional- soy or dairy

Instructions

  • Finely chop the garlic, and 1 onion. Dice the remaining onion, tempeh and bell peppers into ¼-inch pieces. In a soup pot, sauté the finely chopped onion and garlic in oil for 5 minutes on medium heat. Add the tempeh (or meat), bell peppers, spices and the remaining onion and sauté for 5 more minutes. Add the remaining ingredients to the pot and add water to achieve desired consistency (I usually start with 2 cups of water). Bring to a near boil, turn down heat and simmer on low for 30 minutes. Turn off heat, cover and let sit for 10 minutes or longer. The longer that you let it simmer, the more the chili will absorb all the awesome flavors. Top with shredded cheese and/or green onions. Serve with fresh bread or tortillas.
  • There are many variations to this recipe. Add or delete what your tastes dictate. You can add corn, elbow macaroni, or a different sampling of spices. Try substituting the Mardi Gras Shake™ with Buddha Shake Curry Mix™ and a shot of red wine.
