Chic & Stylish Travel Food

Darlings,  Did I mention to you that my Fave food of choice is Street Food – roadside stands, hawker food…Oh Yes…not those fancy cafes with glamorous people sitting outside, the che che places with mini morsels that cost your entire travel budget or worse yet…those A List places with fancy tablecloths that have a dress code…is it really about FOOD or the IMAGE that you need to have to eat their FOOD ? …

Now, doesnt this plate of Vegetable & Couscous medley  along with the Mint Tea drink look simply DIVINE ?

So, here’s my version that you could make yourself to re-create this special moment. First off all, we need to go to the market to pick up stuff…

Chop 1 large onion & saute in a pan – once its browned a bit, grate 2 garlic cloves & 1/4 inch of ginger…Now add in your dry stuff (1 tsp of cumin powder, 1 tsp of pepper, 1 tsp of paprika / coriander…stir it all up. To this mix, add 1 can of chick peas , 1 medium tomato chopped up & 1 cup of fresh / frozen peas. Leave cooking  for 5 mins & then add 1 cup of couscous & enough water to cover. This should cook in a few mins as couscous cooks fast & you may have to add some water.  Add 1 cup of chooped parsley / cilantro & cover the pan…Voila you have a meal…Serve with a green salad garnished with chopped up ruby red beets…

Maybe you could serve it in ceramic clay Tajines like these…(no worries, I am bringing some extra)10_10

I’m also bringing some tables like these that we could eat from…(yes all on the boats ofcourse). Isn’t that why BenGay & Icy Hot got invented  ?

So, Darlings…I hope you make this delectable meal for yourself or maybe share with a loved one or two & talk about…what else but TRAVEL. So, until the next set of postcards..I wish you all a Bon Appetit.
