African Style Vegetables In Coconut Milk Recipe
2 tbsp ghee -=or=- vegetable oil
3 each whole cloves
1 large onion, chopped
2 each garlic cloves, crushed
1 cup potatoes, cubed
2 cup carrots, diced
2 cup green beans, chopped
1/2 tbsp berbere
1/2 tbsp hungarian paprika
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 salt & pepper
1 cilantro, chopped
Heat ghee or vegetable oil with the whole cloves over low heat. When
hot, add the onions & garlic & saute, stirring occasionally, for a
few moments. Add the carrots & potatoes & continue to saute for 5
minutes, stir to prevent sticking. Add the green beans & saute for
just a few more minutes. Slowly stir in the coconut milk. Use only
as much as you need to create a thick sauce: the vegetables should
not be swimming in milk. Carefully bring to a boil, reduce heat &
simmer until the vegetables are cooked, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir
occasionally otherwise the milk & vegetables will burn. Garnish with
cilantro. Serve with an Ethiopian Lentil stew or with an Indian dal
to mix cuisines, & bread. If you prefer the vegetables to be hotter,
add more berbere. It is best if this dish is made ahead of time &
then left to let the flavours marry. In place of cilantro, use fresh

Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate for cookies and muffins.
If you have gone to the trouble of converting your favorite chocolate chip cookie or muffins recipe using soy flour, it would be crazy to put in those high carb chocolate chips. Chop up a reduced carb bar of chocolate into small pieces and use that as an alternative.
* Replace sugar with splenda.
Recipes that call for sugar can be modified to make use of a sugar substitute like splenda. It doesn't weigh the same so you will have to expirement with it and it might not be perfect for every dish, but it gives very good results in most cases.
