Vegan No-Bake Peanut Butter Fudge (recipe)

Vegan No-Bake Peanut Butter Fudge (recipe)
No-bake fudge? I had never heard of such a thing before and was skeptical that this recipe would actually work. But it did and the final result was very satisfying! The only thing I’m not sure of is whether the squares would stay firm at room temperature here in the tropics so I’ve kept them in the fridge. That way I don’t have anything to worry about. If you’re looking for... 

Sarina’s Vegan Wonder (recipe)

Sarina's Vegan Wonder (recipe)
This meal came together relatively quickly. It is a classic one-pot dish based on veggies that are on ‘standby’ and tinned pantry staple. What gives it a little twist from other cobbler-style casseroles is the use of cornmeal as the crust. As I enter my 3rd year of preparing gluten-free meals where my mother is concerned I have come to have an even greater respect for cornmeal’s... 

Kelewele (recipe)

Kelewele (recipe)
One of the things that I love about operating Trinigourmet is the wealth of knowledge and experiences that readers bring to the table. Whether it’s commenting on other’s questions left in posts, participating in the #caribbeancooks hashtag on Twitter, or contributing to my Facebook presence, I am always left inspired. Case in point. Recently I asked fans of the Trinigourmet Facebook page,... 

Meatless Cassava Oiled-Down (recipe)

Meatless Cassava Oiled-Down (recipe)
Oiled down (also more commonly referred to as ‘oildown’) is one of those truly transcendent West Indian delights. As I wrote, in one of this blog’s first entries: “Oil Down, is a colloquial Caribbean name for any dish of starchy vegetables cooked in coconut milk until all the milk is absorbed and the ingredients have turned into a creamy mush (or have ‘oiled down’). The... 

Trinidad Pholourie (recipe) – Saveur Magazine “Best Of The Web”!

Trinidad Pholourie (recipe) - Saveur Magazine
July 5, 2010: Sometime between when this post was originally written in 2007 and now it appears Saveur Magazine selected this recipe as one of its ‘Best Of The Web‘, and Trinigourmet.com as one of its ‘Sites We Love’. I can’t explain how much this means to me as it has always been my hope and aim to disseminate Trinidadian cuisine to the wider world. It really makes the...

Coconut Bake (recipe)

Coconut Bake (recipe)
Here in Trinidad the term bake is applied to any bread which is not leavened with yeast. It also usually involves cutting fat into flour in the early stages. People often ask me how I get my bakes to be so soft, well after much soul searching I am ready to share my ‘secret’ Ice water! I love to keep the dough as cold as possible and nothing does that better than ice water. Not only does... 

Fried Eggplant (recipe)

Fried Eggplant (recipe)
You know one of the unexpected discoveries of having a food blog is realizing how much our parents keep from us about -their- culinary pasts. Before I started TriniGourmet I thought it was reasonable to assume that the foods my parents made were accurate reflections of their respective heritages (Trinidad and Jamaica respectively), and as such included faves from their own childhoods. Not so. It has... 

Ciabatta Bread (recipe)

Ciabatta Bread (recipe)
This recipe for Ciabatta Bread creates a very light loaf, soft and chewy on the inside with a thin crunchy rustic crust. I originally made it for my mom’s birthday in 2006, before she developed a gluten allergy and it was a huge hit. Since that time it has become one of the most popular recipes here on Trinigourmet, even being linked to by The Fresh Loaf! Although I have been thrilled by all...

Butternut Squash Soup with Ginger Source: Adapted fromBon Appetit Yield: Serves 6 Ingredients 2 butternut squash (about 4 3/4 pounds total), halved lengthwise, seeded 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 2 cups thinly sliced onion 1 tablespoon... 

Red Red (recipe)

Red Red (recipe)
Red-Red is a Ghanian dish I stumbled across quite accidentally while looking at a recipe for Kelewele that was kindly sent to me via my Facebook page by Corinne, a regular contributor. Traditionally served with fried plantain it is a rich, luscious and spicy combination of thick tomato sauce and black-eyed peas which visually lives up to its name. Having never tried it before I used a multitude of... 

Raw Green Mango Chow (recipe)

Raw Green Mango Chow (recipe)
This post was originally published on February 6, 2009. It has been updated once since then for submission to Mango Moods Earlier this month I asked Trinigourmet readers on Facebook and Twitter what their favourite way to enjoy mango was. The runaway winner? Mango Chow! Green mango chow is a wonderful accompaniment to most meals. Light and yet spicy, it adds a tart sweetness when used as a condiment.... 

West Indian Bread Recipes

West Indian Bread Recipes
Through the years I have assembled more than a few West Indian bread recipes and have decided it is high time to compile them into their own post! Please note that I am more than aware that the current listing is far from exhaustive. As a result I am dividing it into two parts which will be continually updated. If you don’t see a recipe here that you would like me to add to the site please leave... 

Chef’s Table Recipe: Ciabatta-Wrapped Striped Bass

Chef's Table Recipe: Ciabatta-Wrapped Striped Bass
Chef's Table: Ciabatta-Wrapped Sea Bass (ABC News)This recipe for Ciabatta-Wrapped Striped Bass just caught my eye and is definitely a novel and creative way to use ciabatta bread! Combining the flavours of a saffron sauce with a tomato-fennel stew, and easily adaptable to kosher restrictions, this will definitely be gracing my dinner table in the near future (I’ll probably be leaving out the... 

Yu Sheng/Yee Sang “Rainbow Raw Fish Salad” (recipe)

Yu Sheng/Yee Sang
This post was originally published on February 18, 2009. It has been updated once since then. Prior to last year I had never heard of Yu Sheng (also known as Yee Sang), indeed I only became aware of its existence thanks to research done for a blogging event. As this year the Chinese New Year falls on Valentine’s Day it seemed only fitting to repost this recipe, which is one I’ve fallen... 

TWD: Banana-Apple Crisp

TWD: Banana-Apple Crisp
Yes! I’m back! A day late for the proper Tuesdays with Dorie post but back nevertheless. Thanks so much for the inquiries and well wishes, I have been dealing with some chronic health issues that flare up from time to time. But now everything seems to be under control again And just in time too! I’ve been working hard lately over the last few months to begin losing some extra pounds... 

Daring Cooks: Gluten-Free Indian Dosas (recipe)

Daring Cooks: Gluten-Free Indian Dosas (recipe)
Finally! I have completed (and posted) a Daring Cooks Challenge on time! I have been cooking along with this most recent adjunct to the Daring Bakers community but have always ended up missing the deadlines for one reason or another. No more! This time around the challenge was Indian Dosas. I’ve made dosas before but this was my first time doing so with gluten-free flour. Two suggested accompaniments... 

Ensalada Chilena (recipe)

Ensalada Chilena (recipe)
This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Summit Of The Americas Earlier this year when Trinidad hosted the Summit of the Americas, I came up with the idea to try to cook my way through the recipes of the attending nations. That never quite materialized in the timely manner that I had envisioned. This recipe was one of those. This simple tomato and onion salad is a customary accompaniment to meals in... 

Sarina’s Spinach-Ginger Salad (recipe)

Sarina's Spinach-Ginger Salad (recipe)
This quick and simple salad is perked up by the addition of slivered stem ginger. Stem ginger is an ingredient that doesn’t get as much love as I think it should. It’s usually found in the baking aisle, but at times I have seen it hiding rather uncomfortably in the aisles that house ‘international ingredients’ and/or random salad dressings. From the Good Food Channel: Preserved... 

Parisian Apple Tartlets

Parisian Apple Tartlets
MMMMMMMMM. These were so good! And SO SIMPLE! Some peeled core apple, some puff pastry. A little butter and sugar and that’s it! Oh c’mon! Even the most kitchen phobic amongst you can make this one. With my heart shaped cookie cutters I really went to town. Ever the experimenter I decided to play around with the toppings. In addition to the sugar and butter topping that Dorie uses in...
