Herb Dressing

A friend shared this recipe she got from "Soul Veg", a restaurant in Georgia.  It's not just good on salad but on plain rice as well.

  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup of soy milk
  • 2 Tbsp. of lemon juice
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. of Italian seasoning.

Blend Together with...
  • 2 cups of oil

Mix all the ingredients in a blender and add the oil last or it will not mix properly.

*It tends to separate rather quickly so shake before every use.

I will provide a picture...eventually.

Ugandan Chapati Flatbread

A friend from Uganda showed me how to make an African flatbread called chapati.  I rarely use recipes & she doesn't use them at all but for the sake blogging I've googled a chapati recipe that was very similar to the chapati I made.  If you're interested, here's the link to the one I found.
CHAPATI (My version of it anyway.)
Granted they weren't perfectly round but they were good nonetheless.
  • 2 cups of Duram Atta flour (or any flour of your choice)
  • 1 tsp. of Adobo (or salt to taste)
  • 1-2 tsp. of Chief Head Curry (or whatever flavors you like)
  • 1/2 cups of finely diced onions (optional)
  • 3/4 cups of water
  • oil (for frying)

1, Knead all the ingredients together.  The dough should stick together into a ball BUT should be dry enough so that it doesn't stick to your skin.  If it's to dry add a little more water.  If the dough is sticking to your skin add a little more flour.
2, Divide the dough into about seven balls.
3, Oil the surface for rolling.  Roll with a rolling pin until thin.
4, Fry in a skillet until brown.
