I was clicking through forums to find a new way to cook broccoli and stumbled on a link to a website that hasn't been updated since 1996... We decided to go for it and the result was broccoli that people consumed as if it was candy. Asian-tart-crunchy-slightly-spicy-candy. Credit to www.johnrussell.name
This recipe is by Anupy Singla, whose cookbook, "The Indian Slow Cooker", is a publishing sensation. She says slow cookers are particularly suitable for Indian cooking, reminiscent of clay cookers that would have been used for village cooking. This recipe is a traditional and classic North Indian dish that you would find in every home, but not in restaurants. Comfort food for Punjabis, this is the dish her family requests the most.
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.
My local Chinese restaurant makes a wonderful version and this recipe, from "Stir-Frying to the Sky;s Edge" by Grace Young, is the closest to it that I have found. The barbecued Chinese pork can be found in Chinese markets, but I make my own, Recipe #269360 . I do not use the bell pepper and use perhaps half the scallions. While it's best hot out of the wok, I happily munch it stone-cold.
This recipe comes from Jere and Emilee Gettle, who own an heirloom seed business. I prefer to use red, orange or yellow peppers instead of green. Omit the seeds from the jalapeno if you prefer. Featured in Food and Wine, 8/11
From Food and Wine magazine, 9/10 issue. Chef Kevin Gillespie, who draws on his Southern roots to create dishes, often serves this over thinly sliced tomatoes. I substituted rice vinegar for the cider vinegar and used jarred roasted red peppers, because that is what I had handy, and just forgot about the Tabasco sauce, but still thought this was tasty.
Posted in response to a request. Clover or orange or other floral/mild honey works best. I strongly suggest you use butter, rather than margarine, as I think it simply tastes better. From the Betty Crocker website.
My brother lives in a part of the country that does not recognize rye bread - not at all! So I've been searching for an easy rye bread recipe, and ran across this one, from the Fleischman Yeast company. Batter breads are an easy introduction to yeast breads for beginning bakers. Any kind of rye flour can be used - light, medium, pumpernickel . Sunflower seeds or other seeds can be substituted for the caraway. Batter breads tend to be softer than more traditional recipe breads so that your slices will be a bit thicker.The recipe originally called for 2 tsp salt, which I've reduced to 1 1/2 tsp.
I was on my home from the grocery, all set to make a different recipe, when I stopped at the library and saw this one in the May 2009 issue of Bon Appetit. I had to sub potatoes for the parsnips and used chicken broth instead of beef, but ended up very pleased with this recipe. I did not thicken the gravy, but include the instructions for doing so. This goes very well with mashed potatoes.
Recently we've been dealing with oral surgery that necessitated soft foods for a number of days, and I needed something different to offer, plus I needed something meatless for Lent. I played around with what I had in the pantry, and this is the result. Chicken broth can be used, and I also love to throw in some shredded white cheese in each serving..
This recipe came from Real Simple. It's one that you clearly can modify to use whatever you have handy in the pantry and fridge. Bringing a lunch from home is a great way to save money - even the employee cafeteria is getting pricey! You can use pretty much any short variety of pasta. I would add julienned sundried tomatoes to several of these, or some chopped red bell pepper, for color and flavor. I threw in a little Recipe #269360 with the Asian version. Please note: I seem to get only 4 servings from a pound of pasta, so you might want to check that.
This is a fun and easy beverage. I found it in some magazine, oh, 30 years or so ago. (It's written into the flyleaf of even an older cookbook). But it's stood the test of time. I've also used very ripe apricots and other types of berries- the key is soft fruit. Note on servings: This is meant to be a treat for someone really watching calories - I can drink a double batch all by myself - but the original intent was to provide a reasonable treat when dieting.
I used red lentils for the first time in a recipe I tagged in one of the games and loved them. So I started looking around for other recipes. I found quite a few recipes, and inspired by them, created this soup, using ingredients that I normally have at home. While this is probably 4 servings' worth, I find we generally get only two, as we really love soup!
"Beard on Bread" was one of the very first cookbooks I ever purchased. I found his recipes to be quite reliable. This recipe uses less yeast than you might think is needed - the slower rise helps develop the taste of the bread. Beard describes this as a quite light bread, rather fine in texture and much enjoyed when fresh with a generous spreading of butter and preserves. Also popular for sandwiches and toast. Please note the amount of salt - Beard tended to salt a bit heavily, but I am posting as he wrote it. Posting this in response to a request.
