jjajangmyeon or black bean noodles from Korea. This is one of my favorite food during my cheat day. Pair it up Dwaejigogi-bokkeu. Now I am craving for it.

Paprikás csirke is a favorite of mine!

I taught English and German in Hungary for a couple of years. Some of my favorite Hungarian cuisines are:

Csirke paprikas = chicken with a paprika sauce often served over little dumplings

Jokai bab leves = a bean soup. Delicious. I need to make this soon! It is a favorite.

Somloi galuska = A desert similar in taste to Tiramisu

Meleg szendvics = a warm, open faced sandwich with cheese and ham. Not healthy. At all. But oh so good.

Definitely an interesting thread as I love looking at foods from other cultures!!

Dolmades - Greece: Grape leaves (usually, but you can use cabbage leaves) stuffed with an herbed rice mixture, shaped into rolls and boiled. Some recipes can include meat.

Paella - The national dish of Spain. A rice dish that can have fish, seafood and/or meat and vegetables with saffron.

OH no no... crumpets and english muffins have a totally different texture!

Muffins are like bread
Crumpets are soft, almost damp and tear without crumbs!

I've had octopus, eel, squid, snails and abalone if we're talking about interesting types of seafood we've eaten. I've also tried caviar on sushi. Caviar is a little too salty for me.

We had Eel while we were in Japan. I wouldn't have eaten it if I had known what it was but it was so good!

Going with the title to this thread, here are a few delicious healthy foods from around the world that you might want to try!
[Note that any dish that is spicy, you can lessen or remove the spice if you're not into hot foods.]

Ful Medames - an Egyptian dish with fava beans, tomato, garlic, onion, cumin, olive oil, lemon, and chili pepper (it's a little bit like bean chili, for those who like that)

Fura de Nono (Ginger millet) - popular in Nigeria as a street vendor food, these are balls of millet (a cheap and super filling whole grain!) with ginger and some coconut. You can steam or bake them to keep things low-cal, and add cinnamon for a sweeter side, or chili pepper and vegetables to take things more savory. For a faster, easier version, you can just stir the flavorings into the cooked millet, and not form them into balls.

Tabouli - Middle Eastern salad of parsley, tomatoes, scallions, olive oil, and lemon juice

Hummus - Also Middle Eastern, this is a chickpea and sesame seed dip. You can flavor it any way you like, adding vegetables, or olives, or spices, and dip vegetables or pita bread in it

Gỏi cuốn chay - Fresh spring rolls from Vietnam, made with lettuce, mushroom, basil, mint, cilantro, carrot, cucumber, tofu, all finely sliced and wrapped in rice paper. Served with peanut sauce, hoisin sauce, sweet chili sauce, or fish sauce.

Kappamaki - From Japan, these are cucumber sushi rolls, made simply with cucumber, rice, and seaweed paper. A popular version in the US adds carrot, avocado, and sesame seeds.

Arroz con gandules - Popular in Puerto Rico, this is rice, pigeon peas, and sofrito (a sauce with of tomatoes, bell peppers, and onions)

Fusilli ai broccoli - In Italy, this is spiral pasta with broccoli, sundried or stewed tomatoes, olive oil, and a little hot pepper to taste

Carciofi Ripieni (Stuffed artichoke) - Also from Italy, this is a favorite I grew up with. You take whole artichokes, cut about an inch of the top off so it's shaped like a glass, stick a garlic clove in the middle, put some breadcrumbs with oregano on top, drizzle a little olive oil and plenty of lemon juice on top, and steam until the artichoke is tender. Can add bouillon to the water when steaming.

Callaloo - Popular in Jamaica and Trinidad, this is a green in the amaranth family. You could substitute spinach, kale, or collard greens if you don't have access. Sauteed with coconut oil, garlic, green onion, tomato, thyme or paprika, and traditionally a Scotch bonnet pepper

Dahl - This is an Indian dish of lentils or kidney beans, with ginger, garlic, onion, bay leaf, and curry powder

Bhindi Masala - Also from India, this is a stew of okra, tomato, garlic, and onion

Ratatouille - French stew of tomato, eggplant, onion, zucchini, red bell pepper, garlic, oregano, thyme, basil, and olive oil

Som tam - green papaya salad from Thailand. You could substitute cucumber strips or jicama if you don't have green papayas. Add tomato or carrot, lime juice, cilantro, peanuts, a little brown sugar and vinegar or fish sauce, and chili peppers if you like it hot.

Borscht - Russian beet and cabbage soup

Houbový kuba - This is risotto (a kind of creamy rice) with mushrooms, fried onions, caraway, and marjoram from the Czech Republic

Kasha varnishkes - This is a popular Ashkenazi Jewish food from Eastern Europe, made typically of toasted buckwheat, bowtie pasta, and a little oil with sauteed mushrooms and onions

Rossoli - Finnish potato salad made from potatoes, carrots, beet, cucumber, onion, pepper, a little cream, and vinegar.

Muesli - Popular breakfast from Switzerland of oats, chopped apple, banana, almonds, walnuts, raisins, and a little honey, all mixed into yogurt

Shiro wat - Ethiopian stew of red lentils, tomato paste, garlic, onion, olive oil, and Berbere spice (chili powder, sweet paprika, ginger, cardamom, fenugreek, nutmeg,
allspice, and cloves)

Dolmades - Greek grape leaves stuffed with rice, onion, tomato, parsley, dill, pepper, olive oil, and lemon juice



*These foods all have lots of anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and other medicinal properties, and lots of nutrition! All can be made low or no fat, low sodium, etc. if you prefer.

Happy cooking! : )

God, writing this made me hungry!... lol

I haven't had a crumpet in years. As I recall, the crumpet is similar to what we call an English muffin.

If you want to have some real fun, ask our UK members what bangers and mash or toad in the hole are. LOL

Porridge is a food commonly eaten as a breakfast cereal dish, made by boiling ground, crushed or chopped starchy plants—typically grain—in water or milk.

A crumpet is a small griddle cake made from an unsweetened batter of water or milk, flour and yeast, eaten in the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, and some areas of the Commonwealth.

What is porridge? Crumpets? I remember from nursery rhymes and tea and crumpets. Maybe you can give input? Someone used it in Community feed. I love to learn!
