Munira's Secret Gobi

Shhhhhh.... Munira shared her marvelous gobi recipe with me! I'm not sure what got into her, but she made us a delicious dinner (as usual!) and this time, showed me a lot of her secrets. If you know Munira, you know that's a big deal :) She also bought me some frozen methi (fenugreek) to use in recipes, and gave me some fresh-ground ginger & peppers and a container of nigella seed. What a sweetie. (Note: Of course no actual measuring was involved; amounts below are approximate.) Ingredients 2 T canola oil 1" ginger, ground or diced 1 hot pepper, ground or diced 1 T cumin seed 2 tsp mustard seed 1/2 tsp hing 1 T nigella seed  1 head cauliflower, cut into small pieces 1/2 C methi (fenugreek leaves) 1 C peas (not sweet) 2 tsp turmeric 2 tsp coriander 1 tsp ground cumin 1 tsp chili pepper 1 tsp salt Instructions Optional: Steam the cauliflower in the microwave if you want the dish to be done faster. Saute ginger, pepper, cumin seed, mustard seed, hing, and nigella in oil,

Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cups

Our pantry still has lots of oatmeal and almond butter from pandemic stockups. Looking for recipes to use up some of these ingredients, I came across these healthy almond butter baked oatmeal cups . Low in sugar, high in oatmeal, and super tasty! I didn't change the recipe, am adding it to my blog to remember and share (and not have to do the endless scroll with ads--the huge downside of most recipe sites. I'll put up with ads the first time, but not a second time, if it's blog worthy - and this is!) Ingredients 1 ripe banana 1/4 C almond butter 1/4 C agave or maple syrup 1 1/4 C almond milk 3 C rolled oats 1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp salt 1/3 C chocolate chips Instructions Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, use a fork to mash the banana. Add the almond butter, syrup and milk, and mix to combine. Add oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt, and mix.  Coat muffin tin with vegan butter. Distribute the mixture evenly. Add chocolate chips and banana slices
