This recipe comes from the Moosewood Restaurant. It is a great dip for grilled, roasted, and deep-fried vegetables, as well as strips of roasted chicken. Great for parties and snacking! It stores well, up to 2-3 weeks in the fridge, just reheat and serve!
This was submitted to a local Methodist church's cookbook by Jack Lorenzo, Ninfa's son.Ninfa Lorenzo was the owner/chef of a Mexican restaurant with several locations around the Houston area.Everything that I've ever had at her restaurant is great- Tex-Mex at its finest!You may increase the amount of garlic,cilantro,or pepper sauce according to your taste.
Simple and versatile. I use it in dips, tzatziki, potato salads and marinades. It comes from Northern Iran, where it's mixed with yogurt or it's used to make doogh- a yogurt drink. Don' t know the exact quantities.
I recently visited my brother and sister-in-law. She is a fabulous cook who learned from her mother growing up in Mexico City. She doesn't cook from recipes, but from memory and experience of how she was taught. We had a fabulous meal of beef tacos with this guacamole. I watched so I could make it at home. It's different than most because of the tomatillos, and it's wonderful with the beef. I posted the beef taco recipe separately.
In Tuscany, they puree garlicky fresh fava beans and it is slathered over crispy rounds of crostini and served as an appetizer, Fordhook lima beans have a similar taste and texture! This simple appetizer is wonderful with a glass of sparkling wine like proseco or sauvignon blanc. ;) A scattering of paper thin radish slices provides a juicy crunch and brightens up the plate. You can substitute flat leaf parsley for the mint or a few tablespoons of chopped fresh rosemary. From: The Best of The Best Volume 11. Chef: Paula Disbrowe - From:The Editors of Food & Wine, 2008 :)
A friend gave me this recipe - Hope you enjoy! You can add as much or less horseradish, mustard and onion depending on how much flavor you like. I have also used horseradish mustard which gives it nice flavor.
I got this basic hummus recipe from a friend, who's husband is a chef. I've adjusted and added a few things to it and we love it just like this. This hummus does not contain tahini, but does contain toasted sesame oil. The greek yogurt helps smooth the consistency and the fresh ground pepper adds just a bit of a bite. Serving size is estimated!
Enjoy this with wedges of sourdough bread or potato chips for dipping. Great as a dip for colorful, raw vegetables like red bell pepper, baby carrots and celery or to cool down spicy chicken wings!
