This dish can be made with any other vegetables than kale, spinach, mixed greens, etc. We had left over arugula, a zucchini, and some salsa from chipotle, I threw that all in the mix as well. We topped each serving with a tbsp of peanuts. It has just enough heat and is very flavorful.
I used to eat this dip with real sausage meat and was hesitant to try it with veggie meat. This actually came out really good. I used Rao’s arrabbiata sauce, which has a bit of heat, so if you like it spicier, add pepper flakes, or hot sauce.
I have made many versions of soda bread before, but this one is the best. It’s moist on the inside and crusty on the outside and I love the raisins and caraway seeds in it.
This is the first time I made anything with garam masala spice mix. It was very fragrant and tasted delicious.
Well, this was an experiment and I would do it a bit differently next time. I think that the flavors are very good together, but it needed some sauce or liquid to make it more palatable.
This is a hardy meal with lots of flavor. Baking the sweet potatoes makes the sweetness come through, but in a pinch you can microwave them.
I have never had trahana before, so I did not know how to cook it, so I read some recipes online and decided to go with something simple. Also there are two kinds of trahana, one made with milk (sweet), one made with yogurt (sour). I have the sweet kind. It’s an ancient pasta from Greece made to preserve milk and yogurt.
So simple to make. The “cookies” are a traditional favorite in our family, everyone loves them. Instead of making cookies you can just scoop some into a bowl and eat it hot, it’s really just breakfast cereal. The Greeks call this halva, not to be confused with the sweet sesame type you can buy in stores.
This risotto is a great fall recipe and it is delicious. The sage adds to the flavor of the season without overpowering the delicacy of the rice.
This is a hearty meal for a cool winter evening. It makes a lot of food and is fine served plain.
