    Lightbulb Recipes for Delicious Foods!!

    Warming Squash and Nigella Seed Soup

    This filling soup is a great winter warmer. Butternut squash is a good source of Vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), as well as Vitamin C, potassium and fiber.

    The nutritionally beneficial nigella seeds provide a flavorsome addition to this soup; they taste like oregano and have the slight bitterness of mustard seeds.

    Any other type of squash can be substituted instead of butternut squash.

    Ingredients

    * 2 tbsp olive oil
    * 1 onion , chopped
    * 1 clove garlic, chopped
    * 2 tsp nigella seeds
    * pinch chili powder
    * 800g butternut squash, peeled, deseeded and cut into chunks
    * 500 ml vegetable stock
    * small bunch flat-leaf parsley

    Preparation

    * Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onion and garlic and fry until lightly coloured.

    * Add the nigella seeds and chili, then fry for 1 min.

    * Add the squash and stock, then bring to the boil. Stir well, cover, then simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the squash is tender.
    * Puree the soup in a blender or food processor, with the parsley.

    * Return the soup to the pan, reheat and serve.

    Trust me he didn't "think up" either recipe.

    Doesn't mean they aren't good though.

    A Tasty Falafel Recipe



    Falafel is a delicious Middle Eastern dish of small chickpea balls fried with herbs and spices. It is crispy on the outside and remains nice and soft in the middle.

    Chickpeas are a good source of fiber, protein, folate, Vitamin C, vitamin B6 and zinc.

    Although the falafels contain healthy ingredients, they are deep fried, so it is advised to eat them only occasionally. However, it is possible to shallow fry or oven-bake the falafels, but we have not tried to cook them this way yet so we don't know how they will turn out.

    Ingredients

    * 500ml (2 cups) dried chickpeas (canned chickpeas can be used instead)
    * 1 medium onion
    * 2-3 cloves garlic
    * 2-3 slices stale bread
    * 50 ml (1/4 cup parsley
    * 1/3 sweet red pepper
    * 10 ml (2 tsp) salt
    * 3 ml (3/4 tsp) black pepper
    * 10 ml (2 tsp) cumin
    * 10 ml (2 tsp) ground coriander
    * 5 ml (1 tsp) red hot pepper flakes
    * 10 ml (2 tsp) plain flour
    * 10 ml (2 tsp) baking powder
    * 50 ml (1/4 cup) water
    * oil for deep frying

    Preparation

    * Place chickpeas in a large bowl, cover generously with water and soak overnight.

    * Drain chickpeas. In a food processor add chickpeas, onion, garlic, parsley and sweet red pepper. Process until all ingredients are ground and combined well.

    * Add the spices, flour, baking powder and water. Mix well.

    * Form small balls of the chickpea mixture, moistening your hands with water if required, and flatten them slightly.

    * Deep fry in oil on a medium heat until golden brown.

    Serving Suggestions

    Serve piping hot with pitta bread, topped with salad and hummus (for a great hummus recipe check out our Sprouted Chickpea Hummus).




    Note: These recipes are not necessarily my own but rahter something to share here.

    I haven't heard of a soup called 'ramadan soup'. I don't think it exists.

    Anyways the food most Muslims eat across the World depends much on their culture. So for example Pakistanis would mainly eat 'biryaani' while others such as Arabs, Malasians, Indonisians and Chinese would maily eat their own traditional food.

    That's not to say we dislike others cultures food.

    Surely I like to eat Pizza...which after all is Italian dish.

    Make Your Own Energising Juices



    Fresh juices are a great way to obtain nutrients from fruit and vegetables. Juices can be made with hard and soft fruit and vegetables in a juice extractor. To obtain optimum nutritional benefit these juices should be drunk straight away.

    Virtually any combination of fruit and vegetables can be mixed to create a delicious and nutritious juice. Below are a few recipes to give you some ideas. Each recipe serves 2 people.

    Refreshing Citrus Drink

    * 4 oranges
    * 2 limes
    * 1 grapefruit
    * 1 lemon

    Peel the fruit and pass through the juice extractor or cut them in half and squeeze them. This juice is high in Vitamin C and potassium.

    Carrot and orange Blend

    * 4 large carrots
    * 2 oranges
    * 2 apples
    * Ginger to taste

    Prepare the carrots, apple and orange and put through the juice extractor. Add a piece of peeled ginger according to your taste. This juice is high in Beta-carotene, a great antioxidant.

    Papaya Mix

    * 2 papayas
    * 1 grapefruit
    * 300g raspberries
    * 1 lime

    Scoop out flesh from papayas and add to juicer with rest of ingredients. This drink is high in vitamins A and C and zinc and selenium. It is great for boosting your immune system if you are feeling run down.

    Avocado Refresher

    * 2 avocados
    * ½ large melon
    * 150g cucumber
    * 2 tbsp wheatgerm

    Juice the melon and cucumber. Add to a blender with the peeled avocados and wheatgerm and blend. Avocado is rich in Vitamin E, potassium and monosaturated fats, which aid digestion.

    Blueberry Bliss

    * 400g blueberries
    * 1 grapefruit
    * 2 apples
    * 1 inch cube fresh ginger

    Prepare the fruit and juice all the ingredients together. Grapefruit is a good source of Vitamin C and blueberries and apples are very potent antioxidants. This drink can help prevent hardening of the arteries.

    No it's not. It's an American invention.

    If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people — their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties — someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."
