    Hi Darya,
    I just missed this amazing show:( I have a quick question regarding cooking beans. As a student, my go to bean recipe is adding tomatoes, olive oil cilantro(found in one of your shows and its amazing), but I got tired of eating the same thing. Is there another easy quick recipe of beans that you cooked when you were a student?

      Just play around with different veggies, herbs and spices. I like carrots, radish, parsley, zatar (arabic spice mix), paprika, cucumber, mint, etc. Always olive oil and a little lemon or vinegar.

      Try Spannellini

      Spannellini is a gluten free concoction I made up to satisfy my spanakopita cravings. It’s basically cannellini beans mixed with a flavorful creamed spinach. I serve it as a bed for roast lamb but it is complete enough to be a stand alone meatless meal.

      The filling mix consists of spinach, garlic, dill and feta cheese sauteed together in olive oil. The liquid from the spinach mixes with the meted feta to make a sauce that goes great with earthy flavor of the beans. It’s real simple to make but you need the jumbo bag of baby spinach. It cooks down to nothing and you may not have enough if you are cooking for more than two people.

  2. Good to see you’ve got the internet back up and running!

    I just wanted to respond to the question about Ensure. The top ingredients are water and sugar, the same as soda. Most of their flavors contain about 20g of sucrose per 8oz can.

    While it does provide vitamins and minerals, I’ve stopped drinking them because of the high amount of sugar. It may be ok for temporary use but I’d say you’d get a much healthier source of nutrients making your own protein shakes with fruits and veggies at home.

What do you think?
