Mustard is not just for hot dogs anymore. This steak is fast and easy to prepare and would go well with most any side dish. Once the mustard has been added, do not allow to boil or the sauce will become unpleasant.
A noodle bowl is basically a soup. This recipe can easily be changed to a beef noodle bowl, buy substituting beef for the chicken and beef broth for the chicken broth. The original recipe calls for tofu, but I don't eat this. Hard-headed, I guess. If you want it vegetarian use the tofu and vegetable broth. Additional bouillon powder can be added if you like the broth more flavorful.
A simple sauté of zucchini that pairs nicely with fresh fish or perhaps baked chicken. The recipe calls for fresh herbs, but dried will work very nicely too or even a combination; just use 1/3 to 1/2 of the fresh amounts.
This is a filling main dish salad that is perfect to bring to work for lunch (you can pack the dressing separately). The beans have an earthy flavor that is balanced by a sweet and sour vinaigrette. The salad also has crunch from a mix of iceberg lettuce and green cabbage and more earthy crunch from red radish slivers.
In this recipe the beets are grated, then dressed. It calls for cooked beets, so they could be roasted or boiled, your choice. You could also use canned beets, but you would have to cut them up really thin in julienne style.
This is a classic summer salad recipe. The recipe calls for Webb lettuce (England), also known as Romaine (US), or Cos (elsewhere). The salad is dressed with a yogurt dressing. From "The Great British Kitchen" published by the British Food Trust."
This is a regular condiment on every table in Argentina. It is drizzled on everything from grilled meats to potatoes and vegetables. This is similar to a version I had in an Argentinean restaurant. Some versions also include red pepper flakes, so feel free to add them on occasion.
This is appetizer/snack is very popular in Australia. It was introduced there by English settlers. I know you will be tempted to jazz these up with herbs or onion, well go right ahead! Sometimes simple is better, though. The original recipe calls for shortcrust pastry, but I use frozen puff pastry for ease.
