This is a quick, easy soup to make for lunch. It is a great way to use up leftover eggplant. When adding the curry powder, the quantity given is approximate. There is a huge variation in the spiciness of curry powder. Use an amount that makes the soup taste good to you. If you do not have vegetable stock, any other stock will work.
This is from a grilling cookbook called "sticks and stones." They have the most imaginative and artful recipes for grilling things I have ever seen. This is a wonderful salad to prepare on the grill. Don't use the fronds on the plank (cooked), but save them to add to salads as a garnish. This is great to serve with seafood or fish.
This is a method for roasting a chicken and then returning the picked-over bones to the pot to make stock as you sleep. It works in a large (oval) crock pot, you need room around the bird for it to roast with air circulation. Feel free to change up the seasoning of the chicken, but keep in mind that it will show up in the stock flavors. If you make an Italian flavored chicken, be prepared for Italian stock.
This yields a mild curried beef dish that is satisfyingly chunky and roast-like. Don't be put off by the seemingly large amount of curry powder, the long cook time yields a surprisingly subtle curry flavor and the sweetness of the vegetables balances it nicely. This is not a soupy curry, it does not need to be served over rice. DH did not realize this was a crock pot dish!
Soba noodles are Japanese noodles made from buckwheat flour. They are available in the Asian foods sections of many markets. If not, substituting spaghetti noodles for the soba will work. Sriracha chili sauce is the big red bottle with the rooster on it. You could substitute another chili sauce for heat if you wish (1/4 tsp will make a VERY spicy dressing, please change the amount to suit your tastes). This is adapted from David Waltuck's Staffmeals cookbook. I've cut the soy sauce in half and added broth because I found his version too salty. As written, this dish really won't stand on its own as a meal, it is a great accompaniment to other dishes with veggies and protein.
My children want to eat barbecue with the grownups, but find the sauces too spicy. I use this as a dipping (mop) sauce for them with little sausages or cooked chicken strips to give them a child-friendly BBQ. It is originally a sauce for meatballs, but the kids think it is versatile for other things. Obviously, this is also a sauce that works with meatballs or little sausages in a crockpot for party appetizers.
I wanted to have a freezer-to-skillet meal that would cook in 10 minutes similar to the meals for two that Bertolli sells in the freezer case. Rather than preparing this all at once, I filled the bag as I had extra ingredients from preparing other meals.
My own invention. I find sangria to be one of the most refreshing things to drink on a summer evening with spicy food. Use other fruits that you would find appealing. Slightly over-ripe fruit seems to work best.
This is one of those "too easy to post" recipes. I'm posting for menu planning and nutritional calculation purposes. Nothing fancy, just a kid friendly snack or meal that I can make in 5 minutes. Use pre-sliced sandwich cheese for speed, but it works with thin slices of any cheese.
The first time I went to make barbecue sauce from scratch, I discovered I didn't have any catsup. All I had was a partial bottle of mesquite barbecue sauce from the store. I used the barbecue sauce in place of the catsup in the recipe I was using, and thus my "cheeter" sauce filled with "meSKEETer" flavor was born. Its the only version my family wants now.
Tomatoes, onions, thyme and wine... This is quick, easy, light, and full of flavor. It pairs perfectly with Chia's Recipe #47923 for a light and lovely dinner. If you like cooked tomatoes, feel free to add more. If you are making Chia's potatoes, slice all the onions at once. Assemble the potatoes and put them in the oven, then assemble the chicken and add it to the oven 15 minutes into the cooking time.
I started making this as an attempt to recreate the carrot salad served at Chik-fil-a. This is not quite the same, but it is a tasty non-fat side dish to serve with spicy foods. I served this with some Indian chicken a friend brought over and it made a nice meal. I've also paired it with bar-b-que and potatoe salad.
While this is similar to other zaar recipes for Chile Rellenos, this is our favorite. When we can get Hatch Chiles, that is our chile of choice. Otherwise, we use Anaheims. We use recipe#246325 for the salsa.
These are my attempt to replicate the mushrooms served at steakhouses. They are a wonderful make-ahead accompaniment to serve with steak, pork, fish, or even eggs. If you do not have herbs de province, substitute a salt-free blend with thyme in it. Use red or white wine based on what you are serving with the meal. Use beef, vegetable, or chicken stock. This sounds more complicated than it is. If my husband is around, this serves one--him.
I was very skeptical of Emeril's claim that you could let this souffle fall and then re-heat it and get it to return to a puffy state. He was right. I made this dish for Christmas dinner and served it over wilted spinach. It was fabulous, and I did most of the work before my vegetarian guests arrived. As I recall, Emeril stated that any type of cheese or combination of cheeses would work for this recipe.
This is a great make-ahead breakfast for a crowd. I take it to potluck breakfast events and it just disappears! When I can find it, I use a soft chorizo that is not in casings. Otherwise, I use the hot Jimmy Dean variety.
This recipe uses the Cameron Stovetop Smoker. I have no idea how it will turn out using another device. Proportions are approximate. Please adapt them to your love of chiles and fondness of garlic and cilantro. This would work well with any fresh pepper or chile.
I have 2 picky eaters under 4, and I am constantly looking for ways to get them to eat anything new. This calls for a velveeta slice (the wrapped kind for sandwiches), but I suspect any cheese your child likes will work. I serve this for lunch or dinner with fresh fruit. I've added up to 1 tbl of recipe#256341 without my kids noticing.
This is for a Cameron Stovetop Smoker. I have no idea how well it would adapt to a different type of cooking device. The resulting sauce is smokey and complex, not really Italian, but definately "wow."
