Thankful Thursday: 8 Cuts Every Cook Should Know – International Recipe’s

The Purple Almond

This Thankful Thursday article comes to us from Chef Gustavo Pasquini, author of the blog International Recipes. I am posting this article with the uncertainty as to the activity of this blog, since the most recent article I can find is from October, 2016, with a testimonial posted in January, 2017. With that said, I felt compelled to share it with you. This site has many phenomenal, chef quality recipes, and a few free e-books, examples of his international recipes book series.

Chef Pasquini studied at Senac, Juiz de Fora in Brazil. Chef Pasquini worked in a local restaurant, traveled to Ireland, worked in a restaurant there. In 2014, he traveled to Thailand, learned asian techniques, and took a courses at Le Cordon Bleu in Bangkock. After completing the advanced cooking level, he moved to Italy, where he learned Mediterranean Techniques, before returning to Brazil, where he currently lives.

Allergy-free Friday: Red Lentil Waffles with Rosemary Pomegranate Syrup (Vegan/GF)

The Purple Almond!

The Purple Almond

Today’s allergy-free recipe is a bit unusual, in that the main ingredient in these waffles are lentils.

Lentils are small legumes, which are easy to prepare and soak up flavors of other ingredients Lentils might be small, but they pack some nutritional power. One cup of lentils contains 230 calories and a WHOPPING 16 grams of fiber! (The RDA for fiber is 25 grams per day). The health benefits of lentils include:

  • Improved heart health-This is due to their fiber content, but vitamin and mineral content as well.
  • Improved blood sugar-Once again, the fiber content helps out, this time, stabilizing blood sugar.
  • Energy- The iron content of lentils can improve energy levels.
  • Digestive health-once again-FIBER!

Here is the vitamin and mineral content of lentils from whfoods.com.
