I love this dish because it’s so inexpensive to make but it’s still delicious. It gets a creamy texture from the lima beans, a bit of crunch from fresh corn and sautéed onion, a juiciness from the tomatoes and lots of bright flavor from fresh herbs making it a dish with the best of all worlds! This is great to bring to party or to serve for a luncheon because it’s served cold. This serves 4 people as an entree or 6 people as a side dish. Click here to get the recipe and see how it’s made!
I go vegan every summer which means I cut out all animal products and by-products from my diet. Yes, this includes all the obvious things like meat and dairy but it also includes things people don’t necessarily think about like cheese, chocolate, some types of sugar, eggs, butter, honey, etc. I don’t do it for ethical reasons like most people do, instead I choose to do it for it’s health benefits. It a really hard thing to do but I absolutely love the way I feel when I do it! Don’t worry, my husband doesn’t do it with me and I don’t want to turn this into a vegan blog so most of my recipes will remain “normal”. I’ve added a Vegan Recipes tab to the top to make it easier to find them and I’ll just make a note in the beginning of a recipe post if it’s vegan. Chana masala is an indian dish whose star is the chickpea but it’s given deep flavors with curry powder and cumin. The chunks of eggplant give it a great texture and since it uses canned beans and vegetarian chili it’s also really quick and convenient to make! This makes 6 servings.
