I learned how to make risotto at a cooking class in Italy, the day before my wedding. Risotto takes practice and patience, but even if the consistency isn't perfect, this recipe is delicious regardless.
A nice, hearty soup with barley, veggies and some basil/garlic pesto. You can vary the vegetables as you wish. This soup would be delicious with some crusty bread and a salad. Prep time does not include soaking time for barley.
From Cooking Light. The recipe originally called for water, but I believe that broth adds a great deal of flavor. I use either chicken or vegetable broth. You can also make this with regular barley, but need to adjust the cooking time in the first step.
A fast chicken dinner. Grilled or BBQ'ed chicken breast on top of a warm lentil salad. Gluten-free if a gluten-free chciken stock is used. Instead of chicken can use lamb or fish to serve with the salad
We ate this at our local Indian restaurant recently. I decided to make it myself and we reckoned it was better as our ingedients were fresher! It was very rustic, so I wouldn't stress about how anything was cut..
I am posting it here for safe keeping and will be making before long. It looks absolutely delicious. It is a traditional Ramadan Soup. UPDATE - I have now made the soup and love it; I made it with red lentils which worked fine.
This is a "flexitarian" recipe - meaning, it's readily adaptable to a vegetarian/non-vegetarian version - a boon for those who have to deal with both in a household. While this recipe is vegetarian, the author, Dawn Jackson Blatner, says 4 ozs of cooked salmon or tuna can be used instead of the chickpeas. Check your quinoa package for prep information - usually quinoa needs to be washed to get rid of a bitter coating, although it sometimes comes pre-washed.
This was one of the most popular dishes at Nancy Mehagian's vegetarian restaurant on the island of Ibiza and she shared it in her book "Siren’s Feast: An Edible Odyssey". There are two secret (and essential) ingredients in this recipe - fine bulgur (which has the added benefit of cooking quickly) and tamari soy sauce. This really is the best tabbouleh you will ever make! Dish should be chilled before serving.
I have tried many recipes trying to duplicate the dry Mexican rice you get at the restaurant. After a lot of tweaking this hits the mark. My hubby loved it and said this is the real deal. Hope you enjoy it!
My kids love this soup, friends who think they don't like lentil soup, love this soup. Hearty, and delicious on a crisp fall day, warms you to the soul on a cold snowy winter night. I like to serve this with our favorite cornbread.
