Wanted: a recipe for those days when you just need an extra burst of flavor, a bit more heat or spice, something exotic for dinner. Extra points: ready in 30 minutes or less (can you pull it all together in the time it takes to make a pot of fluffy Jasmine rice?) Found! My new favorite, easy, spicy, incredibly delicious …
Gazpacho, Spain’s famous chilled tomato based soup, is basically summer in a bowl or salad in a blender. It sounds fancy to say it but it’s uber-easy to make! There’s the classic red version of Gazpacho, tomato based, and the classic White Gazpacho, usually made with cucumber, almonds and grapes but I’ve changed it and kicked it up a notch and I’m using an ingredient that will surprise you!
These might be one of the best appetizers ever. If you like mushrooms that is, which I DO. A LOT! I tested these out the other night and they were so good, Mike and I ended up eating the whole batch for dinner, with a salad of course to keep things healthy. 🙂
I used plain old button mushrooms and made up a quick garlic and herb spiced cream cheese to stuff inside. Then I tossed the mushrooms in a dusting of flour, dipped in beaten egg and coated in Organic Panko Breadcrumbs. Panko are Japanese breadcrumbs that give an amazing crispy crunch to anything you coat them with. You could use regular breadcrumbs but I had panko on hand so, there you go!
These are a perfect appetizer to add to a Christmas or New Years Eve feast. Or, do what Mike and I did and just have them for dinner! You can make up a little dipping sauce if you like or just squeeze lemon juice all over. Fantastic and crunchy either way!
My favorite soups are the ones I can put together quickly yet are deeply flavorful. Simple yet able to be the centerpiece of a simple meal. Hearty soups, like Roast Broccoli Cheese soup with Roast Garlic, are perfect as the days grow short and the nights cold. I’ve made broccoli cheese soup for years but only recently have I discovered how much richer the flavor is when you roast the broccoli and a few cloves of garlic along with it.
