TEAM Eats: Enchiladas Verdes

Enchiladas Verdes
Enchiladas verdes are delightfully simple — and delicious. You'll love this missionary favorite from Mexico.

A church planter’s work is never done — but enchiladas verdes are the perfect end to a long day of ministry. Today we’re trying out this traditional Mexican favorite, with a recipe sent in by that TEAM missionaries Vicki and Art Reyes!  Art was born and raised in Mexico until he was 10 years old. His family moved to the U.S. so Art and his siblings could live out the American dream. But as an adult, Art, along with his wife Vicki, felt God’s leading to serve Him in Mexico. Now, the couple serves a Mexican congregation and encourages other Hispanic…

TEAM Eats: Flammkuchen

Looking down at flammkuchen, which looks similar to a square pizza with cheese and bacon
This German, pizza-style dish is delicious and so simple anyone can make it! Keep reading to see how we made it!

Flammkuchen is a specialty of the region of Germany where we live and serve as TEAM missionaries.  Back in the day, German farmers would bake bread once a week. To test the oven temperature before they baked bread, they would put this small assortment of bread, creme fraiche and cheese into the oven. And that creation eventually evolved into what we know today as flammkuchen, or “pie baked in flames.”  Nowadays it’s the German version of pizza. It’s easy to eat on the go, or you can get it at a nice restaurant. It’s very simple to make, which is…

Today’s recipe comes all the way from missionaries in Pakistan. This delightfully saucy chicken curry is packed with deep flavors and spices that all meld together to create a warm, nutty taste.

If you enjoy flavorful food that does not singe your tastebuds, you’ll love this chicken curry! As you cook, take some time to pray for fellow believers in Pakistan. In this part of the world, Christians experience extreme persecution. Churches are often vandalized and Christians can be beaten and…

TEAM Eats: Picado de Rábano

The finished picado de rábano
Try out this recipe for a delicious side dish all the way from Guatemala called picado de rábano!

This month’s recipe comes from TEAM missionaries David and Diana Stoddard, who serve at Central American Theological Seminary in Guatemala. They both rave about picado de rábano.

Also, while you are enjoying this dish, take time to pray for missionaries serving in Guatemala.

TEAM Eats: Irish Soda Bread

Irish soda bread doesn't look like your standard loaf of bread. It is lumpy and hearty.
Check out this recipe for a hearty bread all the way from our missionaries in Ireland! This isn't the normal bread you would expect. Keep reading to check it out!

I love Irish food. It’s hearty and wonderful, especially on a cold wet day. In Ireland, traditional food consists of meat (beef, ham, chicken or lamb), root vegetables (potatoes, carrots, parsnips, turnips, onions) cabbage, oats and bread — lots of bread! Almost every food order in Ireland comes with “brown bread” also known as “soda bread.”  It’s heartier and not fluffy like white bread. It’s nutty and full and tummy-filling! An older woman gave me this recipe after I complimented her on the bread she made for a ladies’ brunch. She said, “It’s just a regular brown bread,” but I…

TEAM Eats: Sz Ji Dou (Funny Beans)

This month we made an asian green bean dish from Taiwan.
Check out this delicious recipe for sz ji dou, which one of our missionaries in Taiwan affectionately calls "funny beans."

My husband and I both grew up as missionary kids in Taiwan. This meant growing up eating Chinese food. My mother would often bring home unusual-looking beans from the market. They were dark green and very long. We grew up calling these beans “funny beans”.  As adults, we have come to love eating what we now know to be called sz ji dou ( 四季豆 ) at local restaurants. This dish is those same familiar funny beans fried up with a delicious sauce.  Although this recipe does not quite match the texture of the restaurant dish, the flavors are terrific….

June TEAM Eats: Rellenitos de Platanos from Guatemala

In Guatemala, people eat this fried dessert that is a combination of plantains, chocolate, sugar and black beans. See the full recipe below!

While I was in language school in Guatemala, my teacher had the class do various activities outside of the classroom in order to learn Spanish in specific situations. One of the activities we would do as a class was cooking together. Rellenitos de plátanos were one of the first recipes we made, and they continue to be one of my favorite Guatemalan foods. A typical Guatemalan breakfast consists of eggs, black beans, a piece of soft cheese, fried plantains, tortillas, and coffee. I find it interesting that these snacks/desserts include some of the same ingredients from breakfast — just making…

April Team Eats: Recipe for Sadza

Learn how to cook maize like a Zimbabwean with this recipe for Sadza and Peanut Butter Greens!

Maize is the staple food for most tribes in Zimbabwe. People often make a maize dish called sadza, where they cook cornmeal like a thick cream of wheat and serve it with cooked greens. The sadza is mounded high and people generally pinch off some, make a small ball, indent it with their thumb and use it to scoop up veggies.

Check out how to make sadza and peanut butter greens for yourself!   Ingredients for Sadza: 1¼ cups white cornmeal/corn flour Water Ingredients for Peanut Butter Greens 1…

You don't have to go to the Middle East for a taste of delicious Pakistani cuisine! Try one missionary family's favorite recipe for chicken karahi.

Chicken karahi became a favorite Pakistani dish with our family because we often ate it while visiting our sons at their boarding school. There was this wonderful hole-in-the-wall restaurant there which made the very best chicken karahi. You got to choose your chicken, and then they got started preparing it! It is generally eaten with roti — a type of flatbread — and plain yogurt, in case the spices were too hot. Here’s how to make Chicken Karahi! See full ingredients list below.
