One of my favorite staples I have in the kitchen is lentils and I usually rely on a lentil dish if I’m not sure what to cook for dinner. Besides being very healthy, lentils are really versatile and can be served at any temperature, whether it’s a hot soup or a cold salad. This time I made a simple, hearty stew-like dish to ring in the fall season.
[This post is part of "10 Ways to use Roasted Garlic"]
This recipe is for garlic lovers. It’s one of those minimal ingredient dishes that takes only a few minutes to prepare. The key ingredient is whole roasted garlic. I wrote a post yesterday on how to roast garlic and showed 10 different ways to cook with it. Here’s one…
I use garlic in so many recipes, it is probably my favorite ingredient ever. Garlic is extremely healthy and roasting the whole head is one my favorite ways to use it. Roasting caramelizes and adds sweetness to the garlic leaving it more mild and palatable to people who can’t tolerate raw garlic. It also gets soft so you can squeeze it out of its skin. Here are 10 different ways you can use your roasted cloves:
I’ll make this post as quick and easy as the recipe itself is. Crostini – or “little toasts” in Italian – are a great appetizer or snack anyone can put together in a few minutes. I like using ciabatta bread for my Crostini which is then topped with cheese, tomatoes and different cured meats.
I don’t know about you, but I love leftovers. This recipe uses left over salmon and potatoes from my previous post One-Sided Crispy Salmon. Turning this into a breakfast omelette made for a satisfying and delicious meal. And when you serve it to guests, they won’t even know you’re using leftovers. The salmon, potatoes and herbs, along with the eggs were a prefect combination of flavors. I served it with a side of toast and some hot sauce.
As I was looking through my blog, I was surprised to see that I don’t have a single fish recipe up yet; especially since I love eating fish and seafood in general. Fish can be discouraging to work with because timing is critical for such a delicate meat, but this dish – also called Salmon a L’Unilateral – has to be one of the easiest ways to perfectly cook fish fillet. Basically all you do is throw the fish into your pan skin side down over moderate heat and wait until it’s cooked. No need to flip it!
