So we ended up making that fantastic vegan cashew cheese the other day, and we wanted to make a healthy dish that the cheese would complement. We ended up blending grains, greens, and beans together to make a quick and delicious casserole.
Last ep, Chef Brendan McDermott and the Working Class Foodies made homemade hamburger buns and condiments. This time, they share a delicious, healthy, and all-natural recipe for homemade veggie burgers and a simple, easy potato salad.
Chana masala is a kick-ass Indian chickpea dish. It’s super easy to make and a great introduction to Indian cooking. There are literally one zillion billion versions of this dish, and 99% of them are probably awesome. Many chana masala recipes include onion, but I think it’s fine without (I make so many Indian dishes with onions, it’s nice to have a few that are onion-free). I do include asafoetida (hing) and besan (chick pea flour). These ingredients are great in this dish, but not necessary. If not using besan, just add ½ cup of water instead of 1 cup. The asafoetida is wonderful. It stinks. Man, it stinks. It’s also called “devil’s dung”. But that’s just when it’s raw, once you toss it into a simmering skillet, it transforms into a sharp, oniony weirdness that will pleasantly remind you of your favorite Indian restaurant. I’ve only been able to find asafoetida at international food markets, but it’s worth acquiring—especially if you want to make a habit of cooking great Indian dishes at home. If foregoing the asafoetida, try adding 1 finely chopped medium-sized onion between the cumin seeds and the tomatoes. Coriander powder is great in this dish, too. But the way I usually prepare it is like this:
1 15 oz can CHICK PEAS (or 2 cups)
1 15 oz can DICED TOMATOES (or 2 fresh diced)
1 tsp GARLIC (minced)
1 tsp GINGER (minced)
1 HOT PEPPER (minced)
1-2 Tbsp OLIVE OIL
1 Tbsp CHICKPEA FLOUR (also called besan)
1 tsp CUMIN SEEDS
1 tsp CHILI POWDER
1 tsp GARAM MASALA
½ tsp TUMERIC
1/8 tsp ASAFOETIDA (optional, also called hing)
SALT (to taste)
In a skillet, heat oil on medium high heat. When the oil is heated, add the cumin seeds and asafoetida. Stir and allow to simmer for just a few moments. Once the seeds begin to crack, add the chick pea flour and continue stirring. The flour will absorb the oil. Stir for approx. 1 minute and then add the diced tomatoes. Mix well and allow the tomatoes to bubble. As the tomatoes cook down, you can crush them with your stirrer for a smoother chana massala. Add the minced ginger and garlic and hot pepper. Add the chili powder and turmeric. After the tomatoes have cooked 4-5 minutes, add the chick peas, garam masala, and salt to taste. Mix well and add 1 cup of water. Bring the dish to a bubble, then reduce to a simmer, cover, and allow cooking for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, the chickpeas will be soft. Use a fork or potato masher to smash some of the chickpeas; this will help thicken the chana masala along with the chickpea flour added earlier. Simmer uncovered to the desired consistency, remove and serve. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves. Serve with rice or on its own, it’s great either way.

Visit http://www.learnrawfood.com to see more raw food recipes. Part 1: Raw food author and chef Jennifer Cornbleet shares how to prepare delicious California rolls using raw nori seaweed, avocado, cucumbers and other vegetables. From her DVD, Raw Food Made Easy.
California Rolls are raw, vegetarian sushi rolls that swap out imitation crab meat for crisp, all-natural vegetables with thin slices of delicate avocado, wrapped in a thin sheet of nori seaweed.
Avocado is what gives California Rolls their name. California produces about 90 percent of the nation’s avocado crop and San Diego County is considered the Avocado Capital of the U.S., producing 60 percent of all the avocados grown in California.
Before she gets rolling with her sushi, Jennifer shows you how to create your ‘mise en place,’ a French culinary term that refers to prepping your ingredients and utensils. She covers basic knife skills in a simple step-by-step process as she slices and dices her way through:
• Bell Pepper
You’ll learn a fool-proof technique for removing the seed from an avocado and discover a simple method for removing the delicate flesh without mashing it.
With her assembly line of ingredients ready to roll, Jennifer brings it all together with the help of a bamboo sushi mat in Part 2.

You can’t have sweet potatoes without brown sugar? Or can you. Today we are going to challenge my southern household notion. We are going to make mashed sweet potatoes with the pleasant surprise of dates. Even though they are still full of sugar (which is kind of the point), at least it is a natural sugar. I have never done this before, so join me for the journey.
