Risotto

WARNING: If you’re looking for a quick and painless dish, you’re in the wrong place. If you’re looking for the classiest comfort food there is, however, you’re in the right place. Risotto is a bit time-consuming, but then so are the best things in life- Gilmore Girls, jogging, raising chickens, impeachment. My mom (you knew…

Gallo Pinto

I have a treat for all you good little children! Knowing how to make a good rice and bean dish is essential. And this one is perfect. Nice and simple, it only takes about 15 minutes to whip up. And it’s an awesome base! Scramble an egg into the beans for breakfast. Throw in some…

Rainbow Biriyani

Biriyani is good. Rainbows are good. (Naturally) Colorful food is good. You see where I’m going with this? Last time I went grocery shopping (a favorite hobby of mine), I picked up some purple cauliflower. I’ve never seen that before! There was also green cauliflower, but purple is a color far superior to green. That’s…

Kale And Rice Enchiladas

Enchilada sauce is not something to be afraid of. I was scared of it. But I overcame my fears. And so can you! The idea to put kale in enchiladas seemed weird at first, but I slowly became obsessed with it, to the point that I bought a huge bag of it. I soon got distracted…

Khmer Curry-Cambodia

Riz Gras-Burkina Faso

Literally translated, riz gras means “fat rice”. Well, isn’t that a nice name. I wasn’t too sure what to expect from this dish- it turned out like jambalaya with sun-dried tomatoes! Two of my favorite things. This is extremely filling, and surprisingly healthy. No butter at all. Shocking, isn’t it?   INGREDIENTS   3 Roma…

Bibimbap

Well, hello everybody! Tis me! Due to many, many, MANY technical errors, I haven’t uploaded for nearly a month. But I’ll make up for it! I’m so excited fall is here, so I’ll be posting a lot of fall-centric recipes. But for now, bibimbap! I love a good bibimbap. Bibimbap is a dish originating in…
