Tilapia Fillet with Buckwheat and Yams

One interesting fact that most people are unaware is yams are often mistakenly called sweet potatoes, and vice versa, but they are two different vegetables. Sweet potatoes are delicious, but nothing compared to yams. Yams have more nutrient and less calories then any potatoes.  Just a little info before the journey begins.

To start things off, I like to introduce the Chefs special Yam recipe. To clairify, its not really special. The most easiest, and yummiest way to make yams is……

Slice the yams in block forms like above.

Season it with Cinnamon, salt, pepper and olive oil

Oven roast  the yams and you got it!

So golden and sweet, makes the taste bites go crazy.

Furthermore, we shall get right into the main dish, our Tilapia Fillet. To season this fish is extremely easy.

Seasoning of the Tilapia Fillet

Salt

Pepper

Lemon

and this time we used bread crumbs to give it the extra crunch.

 

Simply Amazing..

 

One must wonder what that grainy side dish must be…? The one and only Buckwheat… Yes its hard to find, (Usually only at Wholefoods) but it makes the meal more health considering you are eating fried fish.

Thank you all for checking out Colorfulfoods, now go and try it yourselves. Tell me how you can improve this meal ..

Potato Salad Delight

Salads? Really?  I know its another salad but its amazing. You got to try it. its something like a meal in a salad form….  I noticed one of my favorite salads that i have not really payed much attention to lately.  The potato Delight.

Why do you think its one of my favorite salads? Its fulfilling and feels light compared to a meal. Sure it has potatoes and potatoes are not considered to be light food but it still does the job.. The flavors is what brings the salad its delight and potatoes are just potatoes.

How to make it? its very simple..

Ingrediance:

Potatoes

Red onions

Salt and pepper

Some greens (basil and dill is what we use but up to you)

Lemon/lime (your choice)

and a little olive oil

End result totally amazing appetizer or even a salad on its own.

Armenian Chicken Burrito

Whats so amazing about discovering something new in food? The accidental discovery of the potato chip brought in another wonderful snack that was cherished by many throughout history. The thin slice of potato has not only created another industry for business and food development, it has revolutionized our snack industry. Everyone must take the time to thank our great creator, George Crum for the potato chip. How does this relate to our amazing chicken burrito? Practice makes perfect. Perfect gives the creator confidence to experiment and see what works.

Introducing…………….Chicken burrito


Isn’tit a beauty? Are you hungry yet? you can make this too. I will show you.

Lets start off by introducing the ingredient. The beauty of this burrito its made up of fresh ingredients.

As you can see this is our chicken that was used to make the burrito. It is boiled chicken breasts, mixed with mayo. It is only seasoned with salt and pepper and nothing else.

We are getting to the exciting parts now. Avocado and spicy jalapenos! I am a fan of spicy foods. I try to get my mom to make foods generally more on the spicier end of the scale. The reason why the tomatoes look so juicy is because it was picked from our garden.  (Its small enough for 1 big meal per year ) And of course cheese. I do not understand how a burrito can function without cheese. It is a must in my book.

Cant have a burrito without some greens and onions. We decided to mix it together for easy burrito making.

The most challenging part of the processes is literally frying the burritos. Yes most of you would consider it not healthy. However, it is being fried with olive oil and its extra virgin :)

The taste is amazing i assure you.. Take the time to review the process and mix and match for your own personal unique style for all occasions.

Swai fillet with oven roasted potatos

Sunday’s are a time for friends and family. What better way to spend time with each other, then enjoying a nice home cooked meal… preferably Fish. lets get this show on the road. I had one of the most interesting tasting fishes out there. Its not your typical Salmon or Maui fish. Today i had Swai Fillet. Im sure its not among the highest quality of fishes out there in our lovely seas and oceans, but preparing has a lot to do with the amazing taste. Our chef (Mom) told me she spent several hours seasoning the fish fillet with pepper, spices, mayo, and much more.. It was left for one day in this special sauce created by the chef and was ready for cooking today in the morning. One might ask how we cooked this interesting fish? Oven cooked the beast with seasoned potatos and it was beautiful. With the oven, the possibilities are endless. The food is cooked in a more healthy fashion and nothing is subtracted from the taste.

Elephant Bar Smokehouse sandwich special

Ever had a grilled chicken sandwich that was good but left u wondering where the flavor went? I know the feeling…. Tonight’s special sandwich was just astonishing. To be fully honest, the description didn’t sound so wonderful. It had ham and grilled chicken and bacon with the usual (lettuce, tomato, onions, and mayo). Does that sound amazing, I think not. However, the fact that it was to die for, through me for a loop. The bacon and ham complimented the plain old grilled chicken. The food was cooked perfectly. The BBQ sauce they had inside the sandwich was equally tasteful. Overall experience i got to hand it to them. One problem i did notice. The fries were not cooked properly. It was not as soft as it should have been. I would recommend the sandwich but for a side order try the Cole Slaw. It is truly amazing.

Home cooked meal

Everyone loves a good home cooked meal. Lets see what made this so amazing. By the way, it was one of the most amazing dishes my mom made. The meat was so juicy and flavorful. The vegetables were cooked perfectly. I don’t know how people generally cook their vegetables but I like it semi cooked. It tasted so amazing. I actually asked our famous chef how she did it (mom). She told me she slow cooked the meat in some sort of a beer sauce and lightly cooked the peppers. Then cooked the potatoes together and mixed it all together so they can simmer. It was clearly amazing. All those creative food people out there. Try to make something like this and share the results.

Welcome to Colorfulfoods

Ever wondered why food has become such an important part of people’s lives? Lets take the time to really discover why we have become a society of food lovers out there. Living in the United States, we are accustomed to try new foods all the time. Different cultures are so mashed up together that it is nearly impossible that you have not tried anther’s cultural food. Different foods like chinese, Japanese sushi, Mexican taco trucks are all very common in the states. We are not even talking about the real ethnic foods that come from Thai, Armenian, Persian, Brazilian, and much much more. Colorfulfoods has discovered the value of experiencing different cultures through foods. My posts will try to incorporate both the foods from my culture (Armenian) but international foods as well. I am blessed to live in Los Angeles because of the wide variety of different foods that are available to me locally. I do travel from time to time and would like to share my experience with food and other themes as well. Hope you enjoy your experiences and wish you the best of luck on your journey.
