Awesome potato dish to serve with B.B.Qs. or cold meats, excellent with chicken,pork chops even steak and of course curries. Easy to prepare and cook, this is a dish you will make time and again. This is so simple that I forgot to post it years ago. Better than mash and simpler that roast, what more could you ask for.
I just love roasted cauliflower! It changes it from a ho-hum vegetable into a awesomely delicious one! Adapted this recipe from Rebecca Franklin from Your Guide to French Food. My sister says it tastes even better with a little lemon juice squeezed over when done.
A robust flavoured Trinidadian side dish or vegetarian spread for flatbreads. I don't usually add pepper to this as I think the flavour is intense enough. If not using a non- stick pan increase the oil to 2 tablespoons.
what a fantastic combination, mushrooms in a yummy stroganoff sauce flavored with a little brandy and mashed potatoes, dinner on the table in 30 mins. Update 24/02/12 Made and devoured, it really is a dish where you don't miss the meat..but could add some.
A good friend gave me this recipe many years ago after I munched down nearly a quart while visiting! I threw out ALL my other dill pickle recipes because THIS ONE is the best. Several years ago, it occurred to me to enter my pickles in the County Fair. So I did. Since I'm superintendent over in the Junior Foods & Nutrition Department, I don't get to watch the Open Class judging. So later in the day (after judging in both classes was over), I went to see how my pickles (and other canned goods) fared [pun intended!]. I couldn't find my jar of pickles. They weren't on any of the shelves, neither were they in with the "disqualified" items. Hmmm. Then I spied them! Not only did they have a big blue ribbon on them, but they also received Best of Show AND the canning award! What a thrill!!! There's nothing like winning at the fair--amongst all those good cooks--to feel validated as a successful home-canner. NOTE: I did NOT list an amount for the cucumbers since I've never measured how many pounds I use--sorry! SERVING SIZE is the number of ounces in a quart jar--to facilitate nutritional information.
My daughter sent me this recipe some years ago. Whenever I am lucky enough to find pumpkin in the shops this is a dish I prefer to cook. Made today and served with Pollo Sorprisa. Tasty and so easy to make. Serves 4 as a side dish, 2 as a supper dish.
I grew up eating these green beans and learned to cook them by watching my mother. They are my favorite way to eat green beans.
Edit: This is a recipe for people that like a tangy vinegar flavor, most kids won't like it. I make this for the adults and just buttered beans for my kids.
I grew up watching my Papou make these every week! Even as a child I loved eating a big bowl of these green beans with crusty slices of my YiaYia's bread. When my Papou passed away at 99 (still cooking until the end!) I carried on the tradion of making this dish. For me and my family, this is the ultimate comfort food. You may believe the amount of olice oil is excessive, but I actually use more than I have indicated in the recipe- my family loves how it blends with the tomato and creates this magical sauce that makes you want to lick the plate clean!
From Reynolds Wrap, I've been making these for years and they always turn out! You can easily change the spices to suit your tastes! I've always made them on the grill, but directions are provided for the oven as well.
An Indian favourite, served in the tandoori restaurants, second only to Ladies Fingers.
I have added the use of green pimento and potato to make a more substantial dish. You could cook this just using the aubergines. We had this a few hours ago with chicken in whole spices, sagwalla dhall and rice. Superb.
If you enjoy a curry this is a good chutney to make. It will keep for ever ( if you haven't used it ) Make it in advance and allow the flavour to develope. Don't just eat this with curry, it goes well with cheese and cold meats too.
Sounded so good and unique. It's from "Serve It With Grace" and was submitted by Estelle D'Costa. I haven't tried this yet but didn't want to lose it in my recipe box. This uses 4 small ramakins or baking dishes
Despite it's title there is no pastry in this dish. When we lived in Portugal we had this often, sometimes on it's own and at other times with pork chops or chicken. It's a wonderful blend of two of Portugal's favorite vegetables.
Tonight we will have this with baked salmon.
