"moufallata"? That *is* a moufallata-full! And sounds divine... though I'd stop at the Provolone, of course.

Here's my latest culinary experiment:

Tuna Stew ... or "Bombay Bouillabaisse"


two medium russet potatoes, unpeeled whole
four medium carrots, coarsely chopped
one medium onion, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup brown rice
1/3 cup whole green lentils
1 T. toasted sesame seed oil
dash or more of hot sauce or red pepper, etc. (to taste)
1 T garlic power or three cloves fresh garlic (to taste)
1 can of solid white Albacore tuna packed in olive oil
1 T. salt-free curry powder
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce (to taste)

Into a two-quart (or larger) pot, drain the tuna's oil while reserving the fish. Add rice and curry and heat over medium flame stirring until sizzling.

Add the onions and carrots and continue stirring a bit, then pour in three cups of water and add the lentils, garlic and sesame oil (which, by the way, I accidentally omitted mention of in my earlier pea soup recipe which mightily benefits from it). Bring to boil, push potatoes down into mixture, cover and reduce heat to the lowest possible flame. (I use my rice cooker to make this in and set it to "warming mode.") The idea is to have the lentils and rice stay at the bottom so they become fully softened, so vigorous stirring isn't necessary or desirable. Add water as necessary to keep ingredients immersed, and to expedite cooking bring to a second boil after ingredients have been steeping for a while.

Cook for about an hour or until the potatoes begin to get a bit soft around the edges and can be cut with the side of a fork.

Gently crumble the tunafish onto the surface and push down lightly to immerse, sprinkle a little curry powder on top. and let stand 10 minutes, covered, before splashing in some soy- and hot sauce to taste and gently folding the ingredients together.

Makes two big servings.

Every ingredient I bought at the local Trader Joe's -- which I should point out I have no fiduciary interest in. I don't know whether the same or similar products are available to you, but I do particularly like TJ's organic Russet potatoes, carrots, green lentils(!), and quick-cooking par-boiled brown rice and these are the types of things in which being organic especially matter; both in the sense of healthiness for individuals and the planet. (I just hope it's on the level, but those potatoes are particularly good. Also, the above mentioned ingredients didn't seem like they cost an arm and a leg to get.

Here's what I figure I spent (pro-rating all the ingredients except the onion and the tuna.)

$2.29 Tuna
$.50 Rice
$.50 Lentils
$.40 Carrots
$.70 Onion
$1.00 Potatoes
$.10 Sesame seed oil
$.20 Curry powder
$.10 Garlic powder
$.10 Soy sauce
$.10 Hot sauce

... and some more thoughts on potatoes:

I've learned to pick potatoes by sense of smell above all else.

Spuds often come in plastic bags having a cloudy brownish tint and printed with crisp patterns which suggest a more wholesome appearance within than is actually the case. Generally, better potatoes come in clearer plastic bags, but the most important test for quality is to carefully pick up a bag in such a way as to not disturb it's contents (including air) and then gently give it a squeeze while holding your nose near one of the holes. The potatoes should smell earthy but not moldy. High quality organic potatoes seem to taste good and more vitamins are available from them since you don't need to scrub them, even.

OK.. So, I've been waiting for some one to add another recipe.
I'll just go ahead and give you one while I'm here.
Just add a small can of hot peppers. like jalapenos (as hot as you like), to a box of brownie mix.
Best spicy brownies ever.

Hrmm... never thought about adding peppers to brownies. I've added them to homemade dill pickles. That turned out really well.

I made a huge pan of Paella a couple of weeks ago.  It's from a mix but it was very good and cut down so much on the cooking time from doing it from scratch.  This gut comes down to our local seafood market every so often and cooks his paella on site.  You can find more on his mix at the website http://paellamix.com/

For those who don't like may be allergic to seafood/shellfish, it works great with chicken and chorizo too.

NO DOUGH PIZZA!!!!!!! This one is a WINNER!!!!

For when you absolutely want pizza but not all the carbs!!!!!!!

1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/2 cup pizza sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

This time of year I love to juice watermelons, some times I throw in other melons to but mostly strait up watermelon in my juicer. It's so refreshing, not bad w/ a bit of vodka either ;)
