Recipe: Potato and Pea Samosa

This is a super easy recipe in which can be prepared ahead of time so you only need to fry them last minute which takes about 2-3 minutes. The samosa dough is vegan, comes together in 2 minutes, and only contains a few ingredients you have around the house and these can be filled with any already cooked filling. They’re absolutely worth making, especially if you want to impress a crowd with surprisingly little effort.

Menu: Coffee Cake

Here’s my menu for this week. I usually make all or almost all of everything listed on a given menu though I tend to eat things out of order (sometimes you’re just not in the mood for something or you don’t want to cook a complex dish on the weekend like you thought you would). You can always see the food I actually made on Friday when I post my weekly lunch compilation on @mabmadefood. As usual this menu only has lunches and dinners because we always eat the same breakfast.

Recipe: Liège Waffles

If you have a little time in the morning or decide you want something special the next day these are a great change up from the traditional pancakes and quick waffle batter. What’s so great about this type of waffle is that the batter is a solid mass so there’s no spills or leaks even if you overfill the waffle iron. The original recipe calls for sugar crystals but if you don’t have these you can omit them and simply make sure to put some delicious jam, jelly, syrup, or even savory toppings on the waffles for best results.

Recipe: Chipotle and Bean Chili

This is a super simple but really hearty chili that can be made with very minimal prep. This can also easily be adapted for any diet. It can be made vegan using vegetable stock instead of chicken stock, and it can be gluten-free by substituting potato starch instead of flour. This is a fairly spicy chili so you might want to serve it with cream, cheese, or some bread but it’s not so hot you can’t just eat it as it is. If you want a thicker chili you can mash a portion of the beans before you put them in the pot as well.

Recipe: Vada Pav Burger

This burger is basically inspired by vada pav which is a kind of dreamy street food that is carbs (potatoes) on carbs (bread) with spicy chilies. You can use whatever bun you like, traditionally it’s made in something more like a parker house roll. You can also pick and choose your own toppings though I kept it really simple and went for cheese, lettuce, tomato, and a ketchup-mayo mix for a sauce but feel free to experiment!

Recipe: Matzo Balls

I know there’s so many recipes on the internet for matzo balls and they’ll all create a little different texture but I had a lot of trouble finding one in grams/weight instead of cups which just does not work for me now that I’m in Europe so this is my eventual take on matzo balls. Unlike my grandmothers recipe they only take about two hours to come together also and you’ll get a medium dense but still buoyant ball. You can experiment with flavors but personally I think they should just taste like they do. If you have schmaltz definitely use that but olive oil or vegetable oil also both work.
