I love potatoes and when I’m not chomping down on some Yukon Golds I like to mix it up a little. Just like today’s recipe, Roasted Smashed Potatoes, a medley of fingerling potatoes roasted with garlic and finished off with feta cheese.
Mushroom Truffle Wild Rice is a marvelous side dish. A combination of wild rice, mushrooms (including chanterelle) fried chickpeas and truffle oil. If you want to be real fancy and open to spending some of your well-earned, you can buy a whole black truffle or truffle slices. You can shave a few slices into this dish or use the more easily found preserved truffle slices in lieu of truffle oil. Either would be delish!
Have you decided on what to cook for Christmas dinner? I’m planning on cooking a decadent three course meal, but I cannot come to a decision on the exact dishes. Perhaps I’ll serve a plate of Honey Balsamic Brussels Sprouts as a side dish.
Do you need a very simple side dish for your holiday dinner? Well here it is! Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Pea Shoots. This dish could not be easier. All you need is a couple of spaghetti squashes olive oil, salt and pea shoots.
Honey Maple Mustard Parsnips is a great dish, totally Thanksgiving worthy,
To get this gorgeous dish on your table you simply coat some peeled parsnips in a mixture of honey, maple syrup, wholegrain mustard, vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. There is one other secret ingredient that adds a subtle fruity, pine flavor. Can you guess what it is?
Today’s recipe is Cauliflower Rice and Peas. It’s alarmingly easy to make. Just zap a head of cauliflower in the blender, tip into a pan with hot oil, garlic, peas and scallions, and toss/saute until cooked. That’s It!
Today’s recipe is Kielbasa and Peppers, it’s a very tasty layering of flavors you will want over and over once you try it.
I used two types of peppers, large red peppers and shishito peppers. The juxtaposition of the sweet red peppers and the smokey and potentially spicy shishito peppers provides a tasty contrast. The kielbasa should be smoked to provide depth of flavor and the canned tomatoes provides a sweet and zesty quality. The thyme, onions, garlic and veggie stock brings everything together to make for a really wonderful dish.
