A blog about cooking and food, and how to make it taste good and be healthy. The dishes are almost all gluten/dairy free, and many are vegetarian. The focus is on techniques and ingredients over recipes - this is about everyday cooking, and that means making it work with whats on hand!

Quick Mango Pickle

I learned this from Phen, a Cambodian woman who insists I eat every time I visit her house. This dish is made with green mangos, and is very quick and very tasty. Its not a main dish, but more of a condiment that goes with almost everything.
