Peruvian “Chicken” Stuffed Avocado

Image

I used to frequent this Peruvian restaurant in the Bronx with super nice owners and delicious food. It was just the sort of place to pop into on a Saturday evening to watch a soccer match, enjoy the company of friends and eat delicious Peruvian cuisine. There are so many dishes that I miss from that restaurant but one that comes to mind the most is the stuffed avocados. I decided to recreate the dish with my own spin by using more colorful items (like heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, and bell peppers) to feed the eye as well as the stomach. This dish is great for a light lunch or an early supper. Click here to get the recipe. Continue reading

Fully Loaded Nachos

Image

This post is a long time coming. I got side tracked by some really good literature. D, I am blaming you for this one, because you got me hooked on that book. This is totally your fault.

Anyways… sometimes I like to spend my weekends kicking back and streaming movies on Netflix. The release of Orange is the New Black was creating so much buzz that I had to check it out. Since it was a series release with the entire season available for my viewing pleasure, I knew that popcorn wouldn’t be enough to sustain me. So I planned my snack food/meal accordingly.

What better food to shove into your mouth while mindlessly watching television other than nachos. It has everything you require from a snack/meal. Great flavor, crunch, salt, protein, and mild sweetness from the avocado. Along with the tang from the Pico de Gallo. I couldn’t have planned a better snack. These fully loaded nachos were everything and the added plus was that Orange is the New Black turned out to be so good. I can’t wait for season two. I highly recommend these nachos for marathon tv watching whether it is Scandal, Breaking Bad, Shameless, or Orange is the  New Black. Whatever the show is these nachos will get you through it.

Ghana Okra Stew (Vegan) and Fanti Kenke

Image

I often meet fellow Ghanaians who are surprised when I tell them that I am vegan. They tell me that they can’t give up the meat, poultry, or seafood in our national dishes. I understand how they feel. When I was wavering in my decision to become vegan, part of my hesitancy was in thinking that I would have to give up all the foods I love so much. Well, I am here to tell you that we can still enjoy the wonderful cuisine of home without sacrificing taste and at the same time preventing animal cruelty.

To those of you who aren’t Ghanaian but are open to trying more worldly cuisine, I hope you expand your palate by trying this dish. Click here to find out the recipe. Continue reading
