Roasted Red Pepper Avocado Club Sandwich with White Bean Hummus

It’s Kitchen Klutzes of America Day and to celebrate I present the one food that anyone can cook, especially the kitchen klutzes like me who are prone to burning food under the broiler: roasted red peppers.
The peppers are roasted until the skin is blackened (and smells like pizza!), turning as necessary to broil each side. Seal them for 10 minutes in a plastic bag, allowing the peppers to steam and the skin to fully separate from the flesh of the pepper. Discard the skin and remove the seeds and ribs and you’ll never want to eat jarred roasted red peppers ever again.
Falafel Pita Sandwiches with Tahini Sauce

I’m celebrating a week of food holidays this week on my tumblr, kicking off the festivities with Falafel Day.
I retain a lot of apprehension in cooking ethic recipes despite how much I enjoy them (I’m just not as familiar with the calorie amounts and ingredients). As a result I never realized how easy it is to make one of my absolute favorites, falafel, from scratch. Starting from dried chickpeas is best and it’s easy to adjust the spices to your tastes (like a necessary dash of cayenne). The results are absolutely stunning.
