This is a Mayan recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks. It's a hit at company potlucks;

Green Bean and Potato Salad w/Pepita dressing


Fernando Divina, Marlene Divina, Foods of the Americas: Native Recipes and Traditions, Berkley: Ten Speed Press, 2004.

Another breakfast favorite from that cookbook:

Buckskin Cakes

1/2 c pepitas, pinion or sunflower seeds, coarsely ground;
2 c flour;
1 tsp sea salt;
2 tsp baking powder;
3/4 - 1 c water;
2 Tbsp neutral oil for frying.

Mix dry ingredients and ground nuts/seeds. Add enough water to form a soft, pliant dough. Place in a bowl, cover with a dry towel and let rest at room temperature for 2-3 hours.

Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces. (I have to oil my fingers to keep from sticking.) Shape into 4" dia, 1/2" thick rounds. Heat oil in heavy skillet over med-high heat. Add cakes and fry, turning once, for 7 minutes each side. It should be puffed and golden brown.

Serve warm.



The grape dumpling recipe in this book is one of my favorites. Served with vanilla ice cream and garnished with a sprig of mint, it makes a great company desert.

This soup has its roots in the cultural exchange of the Caribbean.

Pumpkin Soup

3 lb pumpkin, seeded, peeled and cut into 1" cubes (reserve the seeds);
1 sweet onion, diced;
2 Tbsp butter;
1 qt chicken broth;
2 tsp curry powder;
1 tsp cumin;
1/2 tsp powdered chili;
1/2-1 c half and half;
salt
black pepper.

In a large stock pot, melt butter over med-high heat. Add onion and cook until transparent. Add spices. Cook for about 1 min, until spices. Add broth and pumpkin and bring to a rolling boil. Reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook until the pumpkin is soft, about 45 - 60 mins.

Puree with potato masher or immersion blender. Add half and half. Do not boil once half and half is added. (The half and half makes this difficult to reheat. I stir a Tbsp or two into each bowl as I serve.)


While the soup is cooking make sweet and spicy pumpkin seeds to garnish the soup.

1 c seeds, washed and dried;
2 Tbsp butter, melted;
1/2 tsp salt;
1/8 tsp each cinnamon, cumin, chili powder, ginger and cloves;
1 1/2 tsp sugar;
4 1/2 tsp brown sugar;
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce;
1 dash Crystal hot sauce.

Preheat oven the 300F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Mix salt, spices, and sugars. In a bowl mix seeds with butter, stirring until throughly coated. Sprinkle on the sugar and spice mix coating the seeds. Add Worcestershire and hot sauce.

Spread in a single layer. Bake 45mins, stirring a couple times, until browned and crispy.


The original version of this soup didn't have the half and half, or the fruffy garnish. Boiled cornmeal dumplings were added to make it stick to your ribs. A side of greens accompanied the dish.

Cornmeal dumplings

1 1/2 c flour;
1/2 c fine white cornmeal;
1 tsp brown sugar;
a couple pinches of salt;
1/3 c water.

Bring 1 1/2 qt of water and 1 tsp of salt of to a rolling boil in a large sauce pan.

Mix dry ingredients. Incrementally add water, mixing and kneading until the dough gathers in a ball. Let rest for 5 mins.

Form the dough into 8-10 small balls, a bit smaller than a ping pong ball. Press out into a flat patties. Drop into the boiling water. Cook until the dumplings start floating, about 10mins after the water resumes boiling.

Remove from the water, place in the bowl and add soup.

At the time we are served not so traditional dishes of the kitchen for school which the students don't eat because it is not Hamburger, Currywurst or Döner.

It is only for those students who have one day teaching 10 school hours the day. 10 * 45 minutes.

Well, the school dishes for five days a week repeat every week. On Thursday you always get a sort of "burger".

And everythingh has to be "Halal".
