Recipe of the Month: Michelle’s Sweet and Spicy Butternut Squash Tacos

While all tacos generally come in the same shapes and sizes, the same can’t be said of their ingredients. Tacos are simply one of the most versatile foods around. Few dishes are as accommodating to fusion-style experimentation as a plate of tacos. The one thing that unites all tacos, however, is the tortillas they’re wrapped in, and even those have seen countless variations.

Michelle, a resident at AMLI 2121, created a version of this recipe that truly showcases the versatility of the dish, including a whole lot of fall flair. Forgoing meat altogether, Michelle instead here relies on a hearty helping […]

Recipe of the Month: Noorah’s Saudi Arabian Kapsa with Pumpkin

It’s hard to tell what the highlight of this recipe is—the dessert or the Kapsa.

Kapsa (or Kabsa) is a Middle Eastern dish most commonly eaten in Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf states. The dish at its most basic consists of a hearty mixture of meat, long-grain rice, and vegetables. The way it is seasoned gives the dish the majority of its flavor profile, often using spices such as cloves, cardamom, saffron, bay leaves, and a few others. The varieties of the recipe spin off from there.

Noorah, a resident at AMLI Dadeland, created a version of this recipe that truly […]

Recipe of the Month: Renuka’s Eggplant Korma

We’ve got to hand it to Renuka, one of our residents at AMLI Galatyn Station. The presentation of her recipe for our AMLI EATS contest held last fall was one of the most well-composed entries we received. For her efforts, she took home the regional prize for the Dallas region.

Like much food from the Indian subcontinent, Renuka’s winning recipe is vegan-friendly. Replacing the meat here is eggplant, and coupled with a hearty addition of cashew paste, this dish has more than enough protein for a well-rounded meal. Those wishing to add some may do so without altering the recipe. However, be […]
