Lunch from Saturday

This Saturday Steve taught EFT and I made lunch. This is where I'm explaining the meal...
And here's a picture of what we ate! I made two easy sauces that were eaten right up. Here are the recipes if you'd like to give a try:
Fragrant Tomato Sauce
2 tsp caraway seeds
1 tsp fresh cardamom pods, split, peeled and ground
Large can of tomato sauce
Roast the caraway in a dry hot pan until it starts to pop and you can smell it. Then add tomato sauce to the pan. It'll sizzle, so watch out. Then add cardamom. Let simmer on low for an hour.

Sweet Onion Coconut Sauce
Olive oil or coconut oil to saute
1 large onion
1 can coconut milk
1 potato, cut into cubes, and steamed for about 15 minutes till soft
1 cup frozen peas
salt and pepper to taste
In a big saucepan, using oil, saute onion until it is caramelized. Add in can of coconut milk. Let simmer for about 10 minutes. Then add in potato. Season with salt and pepper. Just before serving, add in frozen peas.

Tastes great served over fragrant jasmin rice to which is added turmeric, dried basil, and dried cranberries. Spoon a bit of the tomato sauce alongside it and serve with a big salad and lots of cilantro. Voila! May your eatings today be happy and bright. :)

Here's one more pic! Lavender gettin' cozy in the egg carton, ready to have a sprouting bonanza this spring in the kitchen window!
