By far the best and healthiest Thai Peanut I've EVER tasted. It's highly requested by family and friends!!! This quick recipe is just for two people, but it doubles and triples extremely well when we have company over. Give it a try!!
When most people think of Mexican rice, they think of the typical tomato-flavored rice. When I've been in Mexico, however, I've been served this type of white rice often. This recipe is authentic Mexican and comes from Rick Bayless.
I love risotto! The vegetarian broth is vital to give it flavour - I use a broth concentrate and use twice the amount for risotto. The colour is equally important so consider a mix of red/green/yellow/orange peppers. Make sure your risotto is a little bit 'wet' in the end, so the dish doesn't get dried out and pasty.
I found this on another recipe site many years ago and it became a favorite back then. I recently came across the recipe again and thought I would share it here. Originally by Tracy Seaman in _An Italian Christmas Meal_; "Food and Wine", December 1994.
Wonderful dish for the summer and your fresh tomatoes. This recipe serves 12, so you may want to cut in half for smaller servings.
Please note: this is an adopted recipe and I have just made it myself. Findings: I used different pasta since it's what I had to hand, and this made quite a large serving bowl filled to the top, and fusilli would have been easier to mix so it's the better choice. Taste? (dreamy look coming over me) awesome... if you love sundried tomatoes you gonna Looooove this ! I doubled the dressing,(more garlic is good) but left the capers to be added at the end by those who like them.. the bowl with the dressing would probably have been licked clean if only the others would have left one of us at the table alone LOL ! the dressing and the pasta compliment each other perfectly. We totally adored this recipe, I hope that you do too :) ZWT REGION: Italy.
If you think Alfredo sauce- that divine mixture of butter, cheese and cream-takes time and patience and is best left to those in white toques, this 15 minute recipe may change your mind. The recipe is courtesy Real Simple Solutions.
This is totally and utterly comfort food for Asians. Posted this recipe for Skipper/Sy. It is a total self-creation that has become a staple in my family. We actually have craving for this. A total balanced meal, all in one. You can substitute the chicken with beef or pork. Still good. :) It can be served to toddlers cos it is very soft. Asian toddlers eat congee quite a bit.
Was looking for something to cook with chicken or some way new to prepare it and voila - I found this in Midwest Living ( a newsletter that I got as an introductory offer) We marinated it with fresh lime juice for a few minutes, didn't call for roasted garlic but I had some so I used it, & the rest is just scrumptious! Enjoyed it with haricots verts - mixed with onions - delicious. However, the sauce was so great that I paired it with rice. The Cubans love having a sauce to put on their white rice, served at almost every meal!!!!
The saying "good things come to those who wait" certainly applies to this recipe that I got from my Italian sister-in-law!! It goes well with most types of pasta (tortellini, rigatoni, etc.)and is perfect for lasagna or any other baked dish.
This is easy, simple and wonderful. The original recipe which was printed in the Spring 2005 Penzeys catalog, calls for long-grain rice; however, I liked it much better with basmati. Also, the original recipe called for minced onion but I found it worked very well with dried onion. I indicated that the butter is optional, because I did not add it.
