 I made a great Boeuf Bourguignon in the slow cooker a few days ago.

I love Indian foods but not the hot spices. I have a sweet potato recipe I created so no measurerments okay? Just cube sweet potatoes, (peel them first|) cook in orange juice and garam masala (indian spice – not hot) with the cover on so it actually “boils” Just add as mujch as you like!

This blog is one of my favorites. She is Dutch and has several Dutch recipes on there, but she really mixes it up and does dishes from all over. This one is one of the best! I make it all the time. Moroccan kefta: http://www.kayotic.nl/blog/moroccan-kefta

Also – chicken tikka masala. It’s a British/Indian dish. I love it! This recipe is by far the best I have ever had. So far no restaurant in the US or England has been able to top this in my opinion. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chicken-tikka-masala/detail.aspx

ETA: Omg, now I am craving tikka masala. Totally making that tomorrow night. lol

African Chicken curry and rice! It is incredible. My mom grew up in West Africa and it is a dish we have a lot in our family. Super simple too. Boil a chicken with some celery, onions and peppers and a little bullion if you want. Then once the chicken is done, take it out but keep the stock and strain it.(Two quarts of stock will feed 10-12 people well) Add a couple cans of cream of chicken and curry powder to taste. You can thicken it with corn starch. Serve it over rice with bannas, peanuts, boiled eggs, pineapple, tomato or pretty much anything you feel like adding. It isn’t nearly as spicy as some other curries are usually but super flavorful! It is always a hit!

Japanese cabbage salad. Easy as! Diced raw cabbage, salted seaweed flakes ;0(not nori, a darker, saltier kind) and a drizzle of sesame oil

Thai chicken salad. Cook minced chicken with garlic, cilantro, onions and chilliS. stir through crushEd rice powder (I make myself – dry fry uncooked rice until it puffs, then crush). Serve over cabbage with lime drizzled on. 

Hoisin + oyster sauce + chilli + garlic makes a very easy stir fry sauce. Coat the meat in corn starch first. 

Marinate cubed lamb (or chicken) in cumin, coriander, garlic, lemon juice and perhaps a dash of oregano. Cook in the fry pan. Lightly fry pita bread on both sides, and fill with lamb, lettuce, cucumber and a basic tsasiki (I add herbs, a tiny amount of garlic and extra virgin olive oil to yoghurt, mix and freeze for ten minutes).

Plus I’m a huge fan of whatever I can find that vaguely resembles Mexican.

Or you could go truly Japanese and make a pizza with corn, tuna and mayonnaise!

ETA – I’ve been told firm tofu, plus ponzu, plus avocado, plus raw tomato is amazing. I can’t eat raw tomato so wouldn’t be able to verify

My family is from argentina, so we have a cultural dinner often.  His favorite are empanadas. 

I did find a recipe for crunchwrap supremes from taco bell on pinterest.  He absolutely LOVES them.
