This is an extraordinary recipe. The sauce is made with only 60 cloves of garlic! I've been astounding guest with this dish since 1981. Be daring, discover how mild & delicious the garlic sauce taste. The recipe came from a cookbook called "Sunday Best". Eggplant is my favorite vegetable. I've collected over 500 eggplant recipes over the years. It's not diffucult.
This is a very simple but tasty and light recipe I just put together because I had tons of cherry tomatoes in the kitchen, my mother and I had it for supper and thought it was worth sharing, hope you like it too! We had it on its own, but it could be served on a bed of greens, as a side dish for grilled meat or fish, or even used as a pasta sauce...just use your fantasy!
This salad is made in Finland in two ways: either with herring (rosolli) or without (punajuurisalaatti). It's my favorite beet salad, and although I've never made it including the herring I'm sure it would be tasty that way, too! Based on a recipe from "The Finnish Cookbook" by Beatrice A. Ojakangas. First prepared in our household by my husband Mike. :)
I remembered Mom making this salad when I was a teenager, so I recently asked her for the recipe. Between her memories and mine, this is what we came up with - it's great for picnics and potlucks and is very tasty. :)
So many people think they don't like brussels sprouts - it's sad, because they're such a wonderfully tasty vegetable! I figure they must have had them prepared badly when they were younger, because everybody I fix them for change their minds about them. My latest conquest was my husband, who thought he didn't like them, either. He has since changed his mind, of course.
My favorite veggie is "gai lan," also known as "Chinese broccoli" or "Chinese kale." It is easily found in Asian groceries these days, and I love the stuff! It doesn't taste like North American broccoli, no sir... I haven't been able to pin down exactly what other veggie it tastes like, but I do believe it resembles tender, tasty artichoke heart. Give it a try! The recipe below is how I make it, although you can also steam it.
