Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Thai Curry
Serves: 3-4
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
  1. 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.
  2. When is pasta ready?
  3. Option 1: Throw pasta against the wall- if it sticks, it’s al dente.
  4. 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”).

This recipe uses either Red Ape Cinnamon Mardi Gras Shake™ or Buddha Shake Curry Mix™
Author:
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Cajun or Curry
Serves: 5-6
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
  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Instructions
  1. Soak the rice in hot water for 10 minutes and drain. In a food processor or blender combine the tomatoes, garlic, ½ the onion, cumin, and paprika and blend well. Finely chop the celery, pepper and the remainder of the onion. In a wok or large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil on medium heat. Add the rice and cook for 5 minutes, constantly stirring (you don’t want the rice to stick). Add 90% of the tomato mixture and cook until the liquid is absorbed, constantly stirring (approximately 8 minutes). Add the veggie broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. In a saucepan, sauté the remaining oil and onion with the rest of the oil on medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the garlic powder, cayenne and sausage and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, including the rest of the tomato mixture and simmer on low for 15 minutes. When rice is done, add the mixture to the rice. Add salt and more Mardi Gras Shake™ to taste and mix well.
  3. Grab an accordion and recite the following: “Goodbye Joe, me gotta go, me oh my oh. Son of a gun we gonna have big fun on the bayou.”
