Download and read online Falafel Forever in PDF and EPUB The ultimate in light fast food, Middle Eastern falafel have become a universally adored comfort dish, which uniquely manage to bridge the gap between healthy and delicious fare. Learn to make best-ever falafel with tips and tricks, and this creative collection of recipes for fried, baked, and full on falafel meals. Falafel are an ancient Middle Eastern food originally made with fava or chickpeas (garbanzo beans), which are crushed and mixed with herbs and spices and molded into patties. They are then traditionally served in pita bread pockets with salad and dips such as hummus, tzatziki, or tahini sauce. The rest of the world have since caught on to the delights of falafel, and chickpea patties have steadily been becoming the darlings of vegans and vegetarians, picnic goers, festival food trucks and supermarket delis since the early 2000s. It’s not hard to see why: quick, easy and inexpensive for home-cooks to make, they also fall into that wondrous overlapping category of being crave-worthy and satisfying (up there with fries and other such savory morsels) as well as nutritious and fairly low in fat. What’s more, chickpeas are a brilliant source of protein for those who don’t eat meat. They are rich in fiber, as well as nutrients manganese and folate. But the health benefits don't stop with chickpeas—modern falafel are often made with added vegetables, nuts and seeds, lentils, or other grains and legumes, as are many in this book. In the Fried section try the Fennel & Lemon Scented Falafel or Juicy Brown Rice Faux-lafel. In the Baked chapter find Crunchy Sesame Falafel or Falafel Croquettes. The Raw section offers snacks such as tasty Mediterranean Seed Falafel, which are packed with good stuff, and very low fat. For something more substantial try curries, casseroles, burgers, and salads in the Meals chapter. Lastly, whip up Sauces & Dips such as Spicy Avocado or Home-made Tahini Sauce in the to perfectly complement your patties.The savory taste and filling texture of falafel means they are great in a wide range of dishes. Falafel forever is for the falafel-obsessed as well as people who are new to trying this delicious dish in all its various forms.

Download and read online Fresh Food from Small Spaces in PDF and EPUB Books on container gardening have been wildly popular with urban and suburban readers, but until now, there has been no comprehensive "how-to" guide for growing fresh food in the absence of open land. Fresh Food from Small Spaces fills the gap as a practical, comprehensive, and downright fun guide to growing food in small spaces. It provides readers with the knowledge and skills necessary to produce their own fresh vegetables, mushrooms, sprouts, and fermented foods as well as to raise bees and chickens—all without reliance on energy-intensive systems like indoor lighting and hydroponics. Readers will learn how to transform their balconies and windowsills into productive vegetable gardens, their countertops and storage lockers into commercial-quality sprout and mushroom farms, and their outside nooks and crannies into whatever they can imagine, including sustainable nurseries for honeybees and chickens. Free space for the city gardener might be no more than a cramped patio, balcony, rooftop, windowsill, hanging rafter, dark cabinet, garage, or storage area, but no space is too small or too dark to raise food. With this book as a guide, people living in apartments, condominiums, townhouses, and single-family homes will be able to grow up to 20 percent of their own fresh food using a combination of traditional gardening methods and space-saving techniques such as reflected lighting and container "terracing." Those with access to yards can produce even more. Author R. J. Ruppenthal worked on an organic vegetable farm in his youth, but his expertise in urban and indoor gardening has been hard-won through years of trial-and-error experience. In the small city homes where he has lived, often with no more than a balcony, windowsill, and countertop for gardening, Ruppenthal and his family have been able to eat at least some homegrown food 365 days per year. In an era of declining resources and environmental disruption, Ruppenthal shows that even urban dwellers can contribute to a rebirth of local, fresh foods.
Download and read online Fermentation Factor in PDF and EPUB There's an alarming trend sweeping across the nation. Americans are being denied their God-given rights to healthy, wholesome food. Government officials are doing everything-from halting food production on farms to seizing farmers' assets.

Overzealous officials are going onto farms and forcing farmers to execute their own livestock. But there is one type of food that they can't take away from consumers... one type of food that they can't eradicate completely. This type of food has been a staple in the diets of hundreds of cultures for thousands of years... and is the cornerstone of radiant health. We're talking about fermented foods.
