Curried Mushrooms and Potatoes

Submitted by:  Ferneil White

Heat about a table spoon of olive oil in a saute pan on low.

Slice your favorite mushrooms ( my favorites are Shitake or Portabella)

Slice onions

Slice peppers

Finely chop 1 or 2 garlic cloves

Peel and chop potatoes


Lightly brown garlic in the oil.  Then add potatoes, onions, peppers,

Add about a teaspoon of curry to mixture( optional).

Add salt and pepper to taste

Let the mixture sautee about another 20 minutes

Serve either over brown rice or add a little water and eat as a stew. 

This dish is very satisfying and tasty.

 The mushrooms are a good substitute for meat.


Easy Salmon and Gingery Cabbage   

Submitted by:  Kathy Olmert

 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil

 1 small onion, thinly sliced

 4 piece(s) (6 ounces each) salmon fillet, skin (removed)

1/2 teaspoon(s) curry powder

 2 tablespoon(s) Dijon mustard with seeds

 2 teaspoon(s) grated peeled fresh ginger

1/2 teaspoon(s) ground cumin

1 bag(s) (16-ounce) shredded cabbage for coleslaw


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat olive oil on medium 1 minute. Add onion; cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until onion is tender and golden brown, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, grease 13" by 9" glass baking dish. With tweezers, remove any bones from salmon pieces. Place salmon, rounded sides up, in baking dish. In cup, stir together curry powder, Dijon mustard, and 2 teaspoons water; use to brush evenly over salmon.

 Bake Salmon, without turning over, 15 minutes or just until opaque throughout.

While salmon is baking, add ginger and cumin to onion in skillet, and cook 1 minute, stirring. Add cabbage and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cover and cook 11 to 13 minutes or until cabbage is just tender and starts to brown, stirring occasionally.

To serve, spoon cabbage mixture onto 4 dinner plates; top with salmon.
