Curried Vegetable and Chickpea Stew

Curried Vegetable and Chickpea Stew

Curried Vegetable and Chickpea StewThis recipe has passed through many hands in many countries to be adapted to by me to meet my families preferences.  I love this just as it is, vegetarian.  This dish simply explodes with flavor and I’m always praying for leftovers because it’s flavor you want to enjoy for days!

Jap Chae (Korean Glass Noodles)

Jap Chae (Korean Glass Noodles)

Jap Chae Korean Glass Noodles Korean cuisine is clean, honest, and generally very healthy. And like most Asian food, it's Reboot friendly, without sugar, dairy products, wheat, corn and (with a tweak) even soy. Lower the carb count by choosing cauliflower or mushroom rice and mung bean or sweet potato noodles, like this new fave dish at our table. And of course, the meat is always optional. Jap Chae is Korean party food on New Years and Harvest Festival and welcome any time of year at our place. The prep is a lot of slicing, dicing and mini-micing, so recruiting...
