But for the real ethnic experience, hey – turn the tables on those man-eating amphibians and serve some up on the table.
The chorizo sausage and cotija cheese help to make Chorizo Lasagna TexMex Style an exceptionally tasty meal. This is classic Southwest North America cuisine at its finest.

Egyptian Rabbit Molokhia is as authentic an Egyptian recipe as you can find. It is traditionally served with plain white rice. Egyptian Molokhia is named after the primary vegetable ingredient of the same name. Molokhia is “Egyptian spinach” and it has a consistency that is a bit slimy, much like okra. The flavor of it varies greatly according to the method of cooking and the stock that used to prepare it. If you can’t find molokhia fresh where you live, don’t worry – the dish can be made just as effectively and as tasty using fresh, frozen, dried or preserved leaves. This recipe calls for rabbit meat – which traditionally was considered the privileged meat of the Pharaohs, and only the wealthy could afford it. You can also make wonderful Molokhia with beef, duck, or even chicken meat. However, if you want the true, traditional version, then go with this recipe for authentic Egyptian Rabbit Molokhia.

Here at Ethnic Foods R Us, we like to share ethnic foods that are everyday fare for cultures around the world, but unusual and “ethnic” foods to people of other cultures. But we also promote healthy diets and eating habits.
So, in keeping with that secondary purpose, this post will provide you with a list of 20 bizarre but healthy super foods you should know about and have in your diet. Looks can be deceiving, but these foods are loaded with health benefits.
Yep, good old bird feed, a staple in lots of the mixes you put out for our feathered friends. But you should be eating this yourself.
A gluten-free food, Millet is chocked full of phytic acid, fiber, magnesium, and Magnese, and not only safe for human consumption, very beneficial. Magnese promotes good development of connective tissues and bones, and get this – Millet is sexy too, it promotes the production of sex hormones in the body.
If you can’t find millet locally, you can purchase some if you go here, on our online foods store.
2. Chicken Liver
Lots of people are familiar with, and like, chicken liver pate, but with its ability to deliver to the body a lot of iron, Vitanims A and B12, it should be an inclusion in your diet as an ingredient in menu items as well. Or just sauté some up in butter and eat with a little salt and pepper – delicious.
Another health benefit is how it helps keep your thyroid healthy, because of the Folate it contains, which also promotes fertility.
This weird looking vegetable is actually a cousin to broccoli and cabbage, but looks more like a turnip with a bunch of spires sprouting out of it. Usually purple or sometimes a light green color, kohlrabi contains a large level of potassium and Vitamin C, as well as many cancer-fighting phytochemicals.
It makes a great addition to salads, and can be added as a tasty and healthy addition to your stir-fry dishes.
This attractive plant produces a grain that excels over wheat with its extremely high fiber content. Loaded with Vitamins A and C, and potassium, Amaranth is a very good food anytime, but especially good for people recovering from injury or illness, because it is very gentle on the digestive system.
If you can’t find Amaranth locally, you can purchase some if you go here, on our online foods store.
5. Blood Pudding/Sausage
I know, I know, most people are like, “Seriously? Pudding made from blood?”
But yes, this food, quite popular in England, is made from the dried blood of cows or pigs. It tastes like sausage, is often sold in sausage form, and contains “heam,” which is a type of iron.
Heam happens to be the form of iron most readily absorbed by the human body, hence, it is valuable in aiding in the defense against anemia.
Brave enough to try it? You can get some if you go here, on our online foods store.
Korean Pa Jun (egg pancakes) is an easy to prepare recipe. I have fond memories of these from my days as a Zen student living in a temple with a Korean Zen Master, and the daily fare was largely Korean. It makes a great snack, or an appetizer, or a side dish to an Asian meal.Just see how yummy this looks!
Korean Pa Jun can be tweaked to your own tastes; almost anything goes as long as the basic eggs, flour and scallions are included. I like to spice them up with some hot peppers, and add some sweet bell peppers as well. You can also experiment with the ratio of eggs to flour you desire, achieving anywhere from a heavy, thick texture to light and fluffy.

Moms in the USA during the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, used to have a hard time getting their kids to eat spinach; I know I was one of those kids, because it was usually canned spinach, not fresh, and if not seasoned well or mixed into a tasty dish as one ingredient, well … it just didn’t taste good.
I know, I know, to the uninitiated, it sounds a bit far fetched. However, rattlesnake is good food, a very lean and healthy meat. Even so, unless you know how to prepare it, the meat can be rather tough, and might bring to mind a lithe, half-starved tilapia. This Smoked Rattlesnake Stew recipe is my favorite way to prepare rattlesnake. The meat will be tender and juicy.
And because the recipe calls for already smoked, boned, and canned rattlesnake meat, it saves you the other major headache of preparing rattlesnake: getting the edible meat off of the bones. It is no easy task, trust one who has tried it!
This Superb Smoked Rattlesnake Stew recipe will feed two very hungry people as a meal main entree. If it is being served as a side dish, you can divide it into 4 to 6 servings.
