Tofu Versus Paneer: Which One Would You Pick?

For years, paneer (cottage cheese) has grabbed all the attention as far as vegetarians are concerned. In recent years though, some of this spotlight has shifted to Tofu or Soy paneer which has started to show up on restaurant menus steadily. Paneer is fresh cheese made with cow or goat milk and used frequently in numerous Indian dishes. Tofu, on the other hand, is obtained from soybean milk.

Not even a 3am doner kebab could tempt one chef

From brains to kebabs, top chefs have revealed the foods that they would never, ever eat. When we posed a handful of chefs the question “what food would you never, ever eat out?” some cited nightmarish childhood experiences as the reason why they won’t touch certain dishes, while others suggested that they would dodge some meals to avoid making friends with the toilet bowl.

One green, four red: tomato recipes from Anna Jones

Today I ate tomatoes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Squashed on to bread with oil, salt and a little cheese on the side in the morning; at lunch, in heavy wedges with a dousing of sea salt alongside a simple chickpea salad; and, at supper time, cooked down into a warm salsa to eat with potato tortilla.

You Can Use An Ice Cube Tray To Make One Of Summer’s Coolest Snacks

Currently, I’m relying on popsicles, smoothies, boozy slushies, and any other icy treats to keep myself sane and my body at a reasonable temperature. As much as I love these foods — so really, my A/C-less existence just gives me permission to indulge — the downside is the sugar crash that inevitably comes afterward. These fro-yo fruit bites provide a much needed breather from the sugar binge…
