Warm the Mid-Winter Blues Menu from She Cooks
While we weather the winter dreaming of warmer climes and times what better way to brighten up a dark winter’s evening than with bowls of hearty, nourishing and flavour filled food fresh from the ovens of Newcomer Kitchen. Our newest cohort of cooks chose the name She Cooks and their tag line is The World on Your Fork. This group of cooks come from India, Morocco, Ethiopia, and Uganda. Our big news around here is that we now, finally after 6 years, have our very own full time kitchen!! It’s big, bright and beautiful and nestled within the amazing social justice, arts & faith community at Trinity St. Paul’s United Church. We are so grateful to TSP for inviting us in and giving us such a warm welcome. This dedicated kitchen will allow us to further support the aspirations of our newcomer cooks as they advance along their food entrepreneurship journey. TSP will become one of our pick-up locations going forward.
Meat Main Dish: Kefta
Vegetarian Main Dish: Kadai Paneer
Cubes of Indian pressed cottage cheese and flavourful sweet peppers are cooked in a creamy, rosy rich sauce made with freshly ground and dry roasted spices and whole tomatoes. It is a warming, richly flavoured dish with a robust but gentle kick.
Priya from India explains: “The dish is called Kadai because it is cooked in a Kadai, a kind of Indian wok.”
Side Dish (All) Ye’abesha Gomen
Selam says: “my son loves it so much he doesn’t even know it’s healthy”
Side Dish (All) Pulao
Alka from India says: “ It tells you it’s there without taking over the flavour of your main dish”
Fresh Naan slathered with roasted garlic and fresh parley
Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Mary from Uganda says: “ The name upside down fills me with positive vibes. It turns your dull mood upside down. It’s my favorite family dessert”
We hope you enjoy our flavours. The World on Your Fork!
