    Re: What did you have for dinner? -Part dois

    It's an Asian-based soup called Tinola.
    I make this regularly because of the healthy ingredients in it.

    I make mine with less water to make the flavor really intense.
    Chicken drumsticks boiled in lots of garlic and ginger. I add cracked peppercorn, onions, yellow potatoes, and thick, yellow long peppers (can't recall the name).

    About halfway to the chicken being done, I add medium ripe, or semi-ripe papaya - peeled and seeded, thickly sliced (not only loaded with beta carotene but also gives a hint of sweetness to the soup).
    The recipe calls for green papaya (but I prefer the semi-ripe ones).
    Btw, papaya is also a laxative.
    When the soup is almost done (takes about 40 minutes), I add bokchoy, making sure they don't
    get overcooked. Serve with steamed rice.

    I use Thai fish sauce with lots of fresh lemon juice for dip.

    Have you tried nouc mam, the Vietnamese fish sauce? I like it better than the Thai or Filipino versions since its milder and sweeter.

    No. I'll look for it. I'll probably have to go to a huge asian grocery named TNT - but it's about an hour's drive from here.

    Our dinner at Cappy's was quite delightful. If you're ever in San Antonio looking for a good place, I say eat here. The meal was stellar, start to finish.

    Wherever anyone travels in the mideast, from Greece to Morocco, every nation, every region, every town, every village, every tribe, every clan, every family each has the best hummus. Christian, Muslim, Jewish, whatever, all make the best hummus. Secret recipes abound, and there are tasting competitions, with intrigue and even violent disputes. It can be eaten in combination with anything, felafel, steak, lamb dishes, fish and seafood dishes, vegetarian dishes, in sandwiches and wraps, in and of itself, for breakfast, lunch and dinner or snacks. You can buy it in specialty stores and supermarkets. With different added flavors. It can be thick and stick to stomach, or light an fluffy, but always creamy.

    The best is made at home to taste. It is simple.

    Either 1 1/2 cups of cooked garbanzo beans aka chickpeas or a 15 oz can. Some prefer them skinned, I don't. Why give up the extra fiber, nutrients and flavor?
    1/4 of tahini (sesame butter, also easy to make at home, but the recipe for another day)
    the juice of 1 fresh squeezed lemon, and 1/4 tsp of cumin, 4 cloves of raw garlic

    Pulse in a blender for 4 minutes, stopping every minute or so to scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula to create an even blend

    Your free to flavor with other spices or savory herbs, onion, shallots, whatever tickles your fancy.

    Use it as dip, eat it on bread, crudités, crackers, whatever.

    After chilling, I served it with fresh loaves of Nan from a local tandoori place, green salad, snap peas, assorted olives, iced teas

    fresh fruit, berries, marzipan cookies, with halvah for dessert
