Please help me use up Ingredient X.
Ahoy folks! I thought I'd start a thread where you can ask for recipes and advice on how to use up an ingredient (e.g. a vegetable, fruit, grain, bean, etc.) of which you have lots and lots and lots; or which is new to you and you don't know where to start with it.
I'll go first. :P I have many, many tasty carrots from the farmers' market which I need to use before they go soft.
I know, I know, carrots - simple - should be a no-brainer... but I was not fond of them for a long time, simply because I'd never known anything but raw or steamed carrots with very little flavour. I like to do INTERESTING things with them. They're so adaptable! Gimme your adaptations! :D
For okra, you could try Manisha's recipe for Okra Kichadi: http://www.indianfoodrocks.com/2007/03/amminis-okra-kichadi.html
If you are vegan I bet soy yogurt would work for the sauce.
IFR is a great resource; all the recipes I have made from it work and are delicious!!
