Upgrade my bean bowl and noodle soup! (No sugar and salt edition)

I've been trying a no sugar/complex carbohydrates diet by dumping vegetables and canned salmon together with beans in a bowl, or dumping vegetables and canned salmon together with shirataki noodles in a bowl and then pouring in hot water. This gets old, fast. What are some ways to simply upgrade the taste of my meals, without added sugar, simple carbohydrates, or too much added salt? [more inside]

Fridge-Clearing Curry Refinements?

I'm making a fridge clearing chicken curry tomorrow (generic type, spices, coconut milk, peanut oil and ghee, carrots and onion and peas and whatever ends of greens or stay tomato we have) and I was wondering what I could do to dress it up? Stuff like grinding and roasting whole spices or adding toasted nuts. Things you could do if you wanted an easy fridge-clearing curry recipe but also had some time to refine and fuss over the little touches. [more inside]

Recipes to use Patak's curry paste

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I now am the proud owner of a jar of Patak's Madras Curry Paste (hot) and a jar of Patak's mild curry paste (coriander and cumin sauce base). I only have one recipe that uses the Madras Hot Curry Paste. Hoping someone on MeFi might be able to help out with recipes to use them up. I'm open to meat or vegetarian options, and have no allergies/diet restrictions. (Things that go well with rice appreciated.) [more inside]

Dinner vegetables for kiddo: beyond broccoli and green beans

Somehow, we're in a rut on dinner vegetables that our little guy will also like. Our staples are green beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and asparagus, though he doesn't like asparagus too often. Salad greens are still not to his liking. How can we bring some variety to our dinner greens? What are other good greens, and how can we quickly prepare them, or prepare on the weekend and store for the week? [more inside]

Is this sorghum still tasty? And if so, what do I do with it?

I have a 12 oz. mason jar of "pure sorghum, standard grade" (3/4 lb) that I bought a few years ago from a local farmers market. I opened it today, and it still looks good, I assume, because I've never actually used sorghum, and don't know what it might look like if it went bad. When I opened it I broke the seal, so I assume there's some chance of it still being edible, but StillTasty.com doesn't have anything for sorghum, commercial or homemade/packaged. So, 1) is it still good after a few years of being stored on a shelf, and 2) what should I do with it?

Japanese Comfort Food

A friend of mine is having to be in the hospital for the next ten days or so. I've promised him I'll make him dinner when he's out, and his request is for Japanese comfort food.

Rice gone wild

I have a bunch of wild rice and a husband who doesn't like creamy soups, mushrooms, or seafood, which seems to knock out most of the signature wild rice dishes. I need some wild rice recipes that do not involve these things. Bonus points for vegetarian main dishes, one-pot meals that don't rely on meat as the sole protein source (though a bit of bacon or sausage for flavoring is always welcome), and crock pot recipes. I also try to avoid processed food, so, please, no recipes involving cans of condensed soup and/or packages of soup mix.

Dreaming of Ottolenghi and Amada; stuck on frozen gyoza

I love cooking, but it's been a while since I've cooked on a regular basis (besides throwing together ingredients for salads and pastas) and even longer since I put together a proper meal with courses.

Vegetarian seeking meat.

How do I cook the best turkey (and) and fixings meal for just myself (for a whole weekend)? I'm basically going to put on some Abba, and eat like crazy this weekend. So tell me how I can make the best Thanksgiving turkey and sides! Oh, this is anonymous because I am a vegetarian for moral reasons. Also, I prefer to limit it to just one type of animal, so no bacon wrapped shrimp. Probably no bacon wrapped shrimp. Recipes of good sides preferably not using just turkey.

What are your most delicious rhubarb uses/recipes?

So it's rhubarb season and I've finally managed to buy a big batch, yay! I love the stuff and have been waiting for this all year. I usually make crumbles/stews, but am looking to push the boat out a little more this time to get the most out of it, finding new recipes and also ways to preserve for when it's no longer around (jams, in alcohol, freezing?). What are your favourite recipes and what other things have you found pair well with it? Have you ever made booze with rhubarb? I'd be grateful for any tips, and thank you in advance!

I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate: Bundt Cake Version

Somebody left a crazy old battered aluminum bundt cake pan on my doorstep, all neatly packaged and wrapped and tied up with li'l ol' lady knots. Now, on my own I would have lived my whole life without ever buying or acquiring a bundt cake pan. I don't even get bundt cake. Why the hole in the middle? It's never made any sense to me.
