2 cups dried chick pea
1/2 cup red onion
3 garlic cloves
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 tsp red hot chili peppers
Soak the dried chick peas over night. (The canned chickpeas don’t work for this recipe)
Put your oil, about an inch deep, in the pan and let heat.
Rinse and put some into food processor with garlic. Blend until chickpeas are smashed and crumbly. Repeat using the onion.
Add cilantro to the last batch mashed. Make sure to scrape down the sides of food processor.
When the oil is hot make small balls and drop them into the pan. Turn after they are browned (after about 3 minutes). Continue with each side.
When all sides are brown they are ready to take out of the pan and put on papertowel.
Getting the cashew out of it’s skin is very difficult!
Roasted cashews are my FAVORITE!

1 1/2 cups chick peas
1 cup chick pea water(if it’s fresh) or 1 cup tap water
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup tahini
juice of 2 lemons (4 or 5 Tbsp)
1/8 cup fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne
Clean and soak 1 cup chickpeas over night and boil 1 and 1/2 hours with a pinch of salt…or do as I do and forget (then you have to boil for 3 hours and let sit for another 1 hour). Let cool for 30 minutes.
Add garlic and cooked cooled chickpeas to a food processor (you can mash by hand but the processor is so much easier)
then tahini, water, salt and the juice of 2 lemons.
Blend 2 minutes and then add cilantro and paprika. Blend until smooth.

Question(con’t): …or a big owey??

IS THAT REALLY THE ANSWER FOR ALL OF US?
Most medicines are combined with glycerine. As you know Glycerin is an animal bi-product. My Veggie kids don’t eat Glycerin.
So I have found an alternative.

Boil spagettini nests for 8 minutes.
After about 2 minutes of boiling start “unwind” nests. Use a fork to stir and separate nests, to make sure there isn’t any small clumps of pasta.
Drain and return pot to the burner. Add oil, sugar and cardamom. Turn down heat to low.
Add drained pasta.
Mix together and cover on low for 10 minutes.
