Harvest Eating Podcast
The Harvest Eating podcast is devoted to sharing my love of food, family and much more. I talk about recipes, cooking methods, different dietary regimens I have tried.

Today I discuss making falafel, a middle eastern dish that is very common as a street food and claimed as the national dish in many countries. It's made from chick peas and flavored with onion, garlic, parsley, lemon, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper etc. Typically it's deep fried but my version is oil free and either baked or sauteed in a non-stick pan. Most falafel is served inside pita bread and adorned with tahini sauce, cucumbers, tomatoes and sometimes yogurt.

Todays's show covers the ever popular ingredient quinoa, a South American seed crop that is taking the healthy eating scene by storm. High in protein and containing 9 essential amino acids quinoa is a complete protein source with a great nutty flavor and can be very filling. Used in a salad with other healthy ingredients it makes a nice meal for anybody looking to eat healthier options.

On today's show I discuss the popular and very simple vegan stew that features robust sweet potatoes, a hint of peanut butter and a variety of spices popular in North African cuisine; cumin, coriander, cayenne, cinnamon etc. It's also flavored with ginger, garlic, onion and the sweetness of dried apricots. This very filling dish is served over couscous which is the dominant starch in the region, but can also be served with white or brown rice.

On today's show I discuss two vegan breakfast choices, so if you only eat eggs and bacon..which is heavenly, this will not be the episode for you. I tach you how to make a banana, date and almond shake with wonderful Medjool Dates. It's very tasty and makes a perfect portable meal. Second is a multi grain (or seed) porridge with quinoa, oats and organic heirloom corn with almond milk, syrup and fruit.

Aloo Palak is a simple Indian dish of spinach, spices and potatoes. Rather simple but LOADED with flavor and color. Typical Indian spices like cumin, garahm masala, turmeric, cayenne, cinnamon, coriander etc. bring such great flavor to ordinarily bland spinach.
