Disney World Cooking: Bunny Chow

   Lets categorize this one as vastly misunderstood.  Bunny Chow is a street food common in South Africa via India.  Upon first hearing about it (around last years Food and Wine Festival) one immediately thinks of gross eating bunnies, or worse, doggy chow.   The dish actually couldn't be farther from those things!  It is in fact most often vegetarian (if not completely vegan), though the curry portion can on occasion contain meat. :/
   Bunny chow is essential hallowed out bread, filled with curry.  Simple, yeah?  The curry varies greatly from region and vendor.  We first tried this treat at Epcot's Food and Wine Festival and then enjoyed a more upscale version at Animal Kingdom Lodge's Jiko.  Neither the festival, or our favorite restaurant disappointed us.  Both were quite delicious.
   I decided to surprise Adam with my own version. :)


   - 1/4 cup canola oil
   - one medium onion
   - two cloves garlic
   - one tablespoon curry powder
   - one teaspoon mustard seed
   - one vegan bouillon cube
   - two medium russet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
   - one cup cherry tomatoes, halved
   - 1/2 head of cauliflower cut into florets.
   - one cup frozen green peas
   - salt and pepper to taste

      1 - sauté the onion and garlic in oil for about three minutes.
      2 - add curry powder and mustard seed, stir until fragrant.
      3 - add potatoes and bouillon with enough water to cover potatoes.
      4 - simmer gently until potatoes are almost soft...
      5 - add remaining ingredients, cook until potatoes are cooked completely and falling apart, adding
           water if necessary.  
      6 - cut the ends off a high quality loaf of crusty bread, and hollow out, making a bowl.
      7 - toast the bread bowl and fill with curry. :)

   The wonderful thing about bunny chow is that it is totally customizable!  If you don't like cauliflower you can totally substitute another vegetable!  The dish is meant to be eaten with your go at it friend!  Enjoy. :)
