An easy carrot side dish bursting with sweet and savory flavors, these cardamom carrots will make any dinner a special occasion. These carrots are tossed in a sweet butter sauce sweetened with cardamom and citrus, and served piping hot.
Just made up this recipe today to use up some ambelofasoula (I've never seen this bean in Canada and don't know if it has an English name). All kinds of green beans would be good in this refreshing salad, I expect. Steaming time is approximate as everyone likes their beans softer/crispier. 8 minutes is what worked for us.
So simple and so delicious! The tall, crisped "chips" look striking when bunched in a tumbler, and they're terrific with cocktails. Roasting the leaves coaxes out a nutty, briny flavor that can become addictive. Recipe is from Dan Barber, celebrated chef and proprietor of Blue Hill in Manhattan and Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills..
Last fall I bought some fingerling potatoes at the local Farmers Market. Then I had to find a way to cook them. Searched on the web and blended a few ideas and came up with this. Also works well if you take regular baking potatoes and dice them up into about 1 1/2 in pieces and substitute for the fingerlings.
Don't know what to do with those beautiful, skinny Japanese eggplants? Try this. It's easy, healthy, and even better the next day. Slim Japanese eggplants are steamed and marinated in a spicy peanut dressing. Comes from World Vegetarian by Madhur Jaffrey. Can also be made with regular eggplants cut the same way.
Well, actually it's America's Test Kitchen, but it's the same group. This is really delicious. I could eat 2 lbs of squash at one time....not sure I even need anything else at the meal. I didn't use any herb. You can use zucchini, summer squash or a combo of the two. I think a combination of the two is really pretty.
Our family has loved this simple easy recipe for decades. It is so easy to make and very economical. I especially like that it only has 3 ingredients and tastes as good or better than ones with more items. Be ready to share this recipe as everyone wants it!
These were born out of a search for a recipe to duplicate the beloved mushrooms from the Longhorn Steakhouse. They are inspired because this is a combination of aspects from NurseDi's recipe 28766 and TheDancingCook's recipe 36869 (thanks to both of you!), along with my own tweaking. In addition to loving the mushrooms prepared this way, I also love the wonderful cooking liquid that is left over -- I keep it in the fridge for use in other dishes (such as soups and pot roasts) once the mushrooms are gone. Recipe is easily multiplied for more servings, and leftovers reheat well.
The abundant use of leafy greens is one of the hallmarks of the food of the African continent in general. Here, the familiar collard green, which has become emblematic of African-American cooking, is given an Ethiopian twist in a dish that can be served either warm or at room temperature
While looking for something different to do with broccoli this Thanksgiving, I came across this recipe from Mario Batali. The original recipe uses lemon AND orange zest. Because I am not a big fan of "orange" flavors in recipes, I decided to try this with just the lemon.
