GREEN BEAN BROWNIES GF

Gluten Free Green Bean Brownies


Have you tried making brownies with beans? This might not sound appetizing but give it a try, you'll not be disappointed!

Mostly they used black bean but this isn't available in my pantry so make use of dried green bean aka mung bean. You have to soak the bean overnight, they will expand in volume and easily get 1 1/2 cup of green bean after soaking.  Rinse and drain then process them into thick paste.

Since this Green Bean Brownies is gluten free, have used chick pea and ground rolled oat but if you have no issue about wheat  in your diet,  half cup of plain flour and  1/4  cup of corn flour can be used.

Also mashed banana can be replaced  with  1/3 cup of pumpkin puree or mashed  sweet potato.

These Green Bean Brownies are rich in fiber and protein but surprisingly no one can tell that  it was made with green bean.

My family loved them and wanted more after eating them.

CAULIFLOWER & PUMPKIN CURRY


To all my Muslim readers, HAVE A BLESSED EID!

Get bored with your stir fry vegetables?  You might just change your mind, when you discover this simple and healthy  Cauliflower & Pumpkin Curry.

This is an easy recipe but make sure you have all the spices on hand before you try this Cauliflower & Pumpkin Curry.  A combination of Indian spices transforms this simple vegetarian dish into a delight for the senses.

Here is my tips for perfect Cauliflower & Pumpkin Curry

1.  If possible cut the vegetables almost the same size and thickness. This to ensure uniform cooking time

2.  Do not add water, the veggies will ooze out water while cooking.  This is sufficient to cook the vegetables

3.  After you cover the pan, stir in between and check for tenderness. Don't overcook, the pumpkin will lose the shape and becomes mushy


CAULIFLOWER & PUMPKIN CURRY
Serves   :   2-3

1 cup cauliflower cut into small floret
1 tomato chopped
1 1/2 cup pumpkin cubed
1 onion sliced
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp ground coriander
2 tablespoon cilantro chopped
2 tablespoon oil
salt to taste


METHOD

1.  Heat the oil in the pan, add onion and tomato, fry until tomato turns soft.

2.  Add in cauliflower, pumpkin and little water. Stir and cover pan.

3.  Mix in chili powder, turmeric, coriander and salt, stir well.  If  the veggies are not fully cooked,  add some water, continue cooking until they turn soft.

4.  Remove from heat and garnish with cilantro.
