I found this at epicurious who got it from gourmet. The North African hot sauce called harissa lends this soup its beautiful brick-red color, as well as a deep, spicy warmth that isn’t the least bit aggressive. For a supper that’s both robust and rejuvenating, chard, chickpeas, and noodles go into the pot, too.
This arrived in my inbox just in time for ZWT9! Curry paste and coconut milk spice up a simple chicken and vegetable stir-fry. Once the ingredients are prepped, the cooking goes quickly, so have everything ready before you heat the pan.
From Nordic Cookery with Tareq Taylor, a Swedish chef, this is a floral summer dessert made with apples, rosemary, lavender and thick cream. Submitted for ZWT9. I am incredibly anxious to make this because I have lavender & rosemary growing right outside my kitchen!
Coconut rice pudding is a popular dessert in the Caribbean. It's so popular that it is sometimes served for BREAKFAST! My kind of people! Here's a simple recipe for a tasty, creamy coconut rice pudding that starts with cooked rice.
Swiped shamelessly from About.com's section on Latin/Caribbean Food.
"When the temperatures climb, cool off with a cold peach and mango smoothie. It's a great way to enjoy local peaches when they are in season."
A good sangría typically consists of red wine, fresh fruit, a small amount of liquor spirits, a sweetener, and sometimes carbonated water.
I found this yummy version on a website for Caribbean food and developed by Hector Rodriguez.
Please understand it's Rosé wine. Fooddotcom isn't allowing 'Rosé' through.
Pigeon peas and coconut originated from the Samaná region of the Dominican Republic. It is a savory dish with a hint of sweetness from the coconut milk. Serve over white rice.
Swiped shamelessly from the 'net for ZWT9. I personally will leave the cilantro out! You can get pigeon peas (gandules) dried, frozen or canned.
About.com has a large section on Latin/Caribbean cooking.
"Cuban tossed salad is a simple yet delicious salad. Serve the tossed salad for a light lunch or with dinner. This recipe is very versatile; you can substitute any variety of tomato, onion, lettuce or radish. The fresh dressing is worth the extra effort to make, but if you don't have time you can use bottled vinaigrette."
Cardamom Ice Cream is a delightful topping for Scandinavian fruited desserts, particularly apple desserts like Skånsk Äppelkaka or dried fruit soup ("sweet" soup), served either warm in winter or cold in the summer months.
Found while reading an article on Nordic desserts! I LOVE cardamom!
Cook time is prep time & freeze time is cook time. You'll see what I mean. :) Enjoy!
From my Greek cookbook from Greece! These are actually baked, not fried. I make this often for my consumers at work. It's one of their favorite breakfasts! I edited only for standardizing measurements.
I had poblano peppers. I had no desire to stand over the stove frying them individually. So, I went rummaging for recipes, found a few then made this. This is delicious. I wish I had doubled it. Feel free to sub black beans for the corn.
