Two Sundays ago, In Good Taste featured Hummus – a Middle Eastern chickpea spread/dip – topped with Tomato Chutney.
This salad is a meal on its own, but it goes well with grilled or fried seafood, poultry or meat; roasts too.
Just like last week’s Baba Ganoush, Hummus is a Lavantine dish that is well known throughout the Middle East.
Baba Ganoush shares the same main ingredient as Baigan/Eggplant Choka – smoky roasted eggplant.
I want you to think of today’s recipe as a precursor to the recipes that will be shared over the next two Sundays in this column.

These Cheese-scallion Rolls pay homage to Chinese Scallion Pancakes. Chinese Scallion Pancakes are like a flaky paratha roti in which sliced scallions are rolled with the dough and then pan-fried.

Linguiça calabresa as many of you may already know is a Brazilian cured spicy sausage.
This combo works great for a leisurely breakfast or weekend brunch. But don’t stop there, you can turn it into dessert by sweetening the oats and even adding raisins if you like.
Nuts are a great source of protein and other nutrients. Considered heart-healthy, almonds in particular, which are high in monounsaturated fat can help reduce cholesterol levels in the blood which can lower the risk for heart disease and stroke.

While every day is a day we get to love and show our love for one another, February 14 is the day when we join with the rest of world to celebrate love.
