This sauce is not a traditional Italian sauce, but don't let that stop you -- the surprise of fresh ginger in a tomato sauce is utterly delicious. This is a great sauce to make ahead and reheat when you need a really quick meal. To make this sauce even quicker, you can serve it unpureed or unmilled -- but I think the extra step of smoothing it out better distributes the ginger flavor. This sauce is superb with spaghetti or any long, thin, dried pasta. Recipe by David Rosengarten
A superb sauce with that Middle Eastern flavour from the Tahini. My six sisters-in-law tried to decide what was in the sauce! Hence the name...me being the seventh sister! Delicious in chicken sandwiches, over grilled meats and also as a dip.
I try to avoid using "To Die For" as a description, but Houston Steak House's baked Spinach and Artichoke Dip is the best of the best! Houston's serves it hot with tortilla chips, veggies, sour cream and salsa. Recipe courtesy of Houston's Restaurant.
This recipe is from the 1968 McDonald's Manager's Handbook put out in 1969 (1968 year) They quickly removed the recipe after realizing they had a very appealing "secret sauce." It was included as an emergency recipe in the event a particular store ran out of the pre-made sauce. Enjoy!
Oh, you HAVE to try this one!! My family LOVES dips and spreads, and even the guys got really into this one. I even caught my uncle (who thinks guys are too "macho" for dips), eating it straight from the bowl with a spoon!! Best when made day of, and lettuce added just before serving. It gets soggy:(
We made this sauce recently during class at Culinary Communion - it was intended to go along with the Pork Loin with Spinach and Pernod recipe, but frankly, it went really well on just about everything served with the meal! Especially with the Green Glop (aka Puree Verte, recipe # 122434). Here's Chef Gabriel Claycamp's recipe for Roasted Garlic and Herb Beurre Blanc - I can assure you that it's a rich, creamy, flavorful, delicious sauce that's well-worth the relatively small effort of making it to accompany your meals! (It's not exactly fat-free, but remember: everything in moderation.) Posted with permission.
This spinach dip is delicious, and very versatile. It's nice served in a hallowed out bread bowl, with the chunks of bread used for dipping. Also, the 1/2 cup of cheese in the recipe can be changed to suit your own taste. A nice sharp cheddar works very well, or a blend of Italian cheeses is great too: I used a blend of garlic jack, mozzarella and asiago which gave the dip a great flavor. And don't limit yourself to serving this cold. My brother, who does not care much for "cold" dips, zapped the left overs in the microwave and enjoyed it hot with whole wheat crackers.
Shoarma is so popular in Holland that you might forget it is from the Middle East! When we lived abroad I really missed it and tried to copy the spice mix that you can buy here in the shops. There are many makes and blends in the shops, they all taste different, now try the homemade mix! Note that there is no salt in the mix so do not forget to add with cooking, or if you give this as a gift to mention it. After you have tried this you can always make some changes to suit your own taste.
I adopted this recipe from Zaar some time ago and finally got round to trying it myself. It's quick and simple and full of fresh flavours. I prefer using basil but the original recipe stated parsley so I left it here for you to choose. Try adding some sliced black olives, fried or marinated mushrooms or sun blush tomatoes at the end.
