Leek and Tomato Quiche


Quiche is a classic french dish, but apparently originated in Germany, as the word quiche comes from the word Kuchen, German for cake. Quiche is a savory tart with a pastry crust and a savory custard like filling which is baked. The traditional French one is the Quiche Lorraine, usually made with eggs, bacon, cheese and cream. Obviously I shall not be using these ingredients here.

Black Bean Noodle Stir Fry

While I was shopping at Whole Foods the other day, I came across a brand of pasta made from black beans. Curious, I turned the pack over to read the ingredients list – something I always do when checking out a new product. To my positive surprise, the two only ingredients were black beans and water: perfect! I got very excited, bought them, and tried them right away.
