I love butternut squash, but i love even more when there is a spicy component to amp up its sweet flavor! If you like spicy Mexican food, this dish was invented for you. If you don’t, you can leave out half the spicy pepper, take out the seeds and remove the cilantro and this would still be incredibly delicious, just more subtle.
Mung beans are a legume in the same family as lentils and peas. It has many health benefits including a high source of fiber, protein and antioxidants and originated in India. You can often find it in the legume section of your supermarket, but if you can’t you can always use any kind of lentils instead!
Short ribs are really the greatest meat to eat if you have to eat it hours or even days after it is prepared. It is soft and falling off the bone and with this sweet and spicy dish, you will never be able to eat them anywhere else again.
This soup has so much flavor because you brown the chicken and vegetables first and the barley only takes 30 minutes to cook! Make sure the skin on your chicken is minimal so your soup doesn’t come out too oily.
Jerusalem artichokes should not be confused with regular artichokes. They look like fresh ginger and have a nutty potato flavor to them. If you have leftover fries be sure to eat them within a day or two. Peel the artichokes with a peeler and then carefully slice them, because they are delicate and can fall apart if not handled gently.
