This soup is so hearty and great if you are having a crowd on a cold day. I put regular dried black beans in and they were fully cooked within 2 hours.
If you are a cilantro hater, make this anyways and just leave out the cilantro! If you are a cilantro lover, you don’t even need to remove the cilantro from its stems, just roughly chop it at the top part and embrace the stems!
This is a great base salad, if you want to turn it into a meal, add chicken, tuna, sliced steak, grilled tofu, goat cheese, brie cheese, or even cottage cheese. Adding turmeric to the salad dressing, doesn’t change the flavor, but creates a golden yellow color to the dish and lots and lots of health benefits even in that small amount!
This chicken is such a filling yet light dish and reheats well too! I love the simplicity of this dish. It is so easy and yet it tastes rich and looks beautiful.
These beautiful flavor bursting fritters can also be reheated or eaten the next day at room temperature. They also go great with a tahini or yogurt dipping sauce.
