Here's a variation of Aloo Gobi, a traditionally dry Indian dish consisting of potatoes and cauliflower. This recipe calls for coconut milk, tomatoes and chickpeas for a savory main dish in a spicy sauce. Serve with basmati rice or, better, with breads such as roti, naan, or pita.
To accompany the sandwiches, serve Tricolor Pasta Salad from Lorraine Darocha of Berkshire, Massachusetts. Pretty pasta spirals and convenient frozen veggies are tossed with a light dressing to make this colorful medley. 'For vegetarians, you can add protein-rich chickpeas or beans to make it a main dish,' Lorraine recommends.
Let the aroma of this savory soup waft through your home while you get ready for the holidays. 'I only have to slice some bread and prepare a salad to have dinner ready,' writes Paula Zsiray of Logan Utah. 'For a thicker soup, mash half of the garbanzo beans before adding them to the slow cooker.'
A glass salad bowl is a must, otherwise your diner guests will miss all the pretty layers. Those layers begin with chopped lettuce and go on from there - onion, peas, shredded cheese, bacon, cauliflower, and finally a creamy parmesan and mayonnaise dressing.
