Double Broccoli Quinoa Recipe

Double Broccoli Quinoa Recipe
This double broccoli quinoa bowl is a favorite of mine. I cook up lots of broccoli, then puree half of it into a pesto. The other half is cut into little florets. Tossed with some quinoa, sliced avocado, and a drizzle of feisty chile pepper oil, it makes a nice meal and I hope you like it as much as I do. If you don't have quinoa, you can certainly swap in a pasta or any number of other foundation ingredients. Farro would be nice, millet might work, barley, pearled barley, or even your favorite brown rice. I should mention that I do like this served with a bit of feta crumbled on top. 3 cups cooked quinoa* 5 cups raw broccoli, cut into small florets and stems 3 medium garlic cloves 2/3 cup sliced or slivered almonds, toasted 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan 2 big pinches salt 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1/4 cup olive oil 1/4 cup heavy cream Optional toppings: slivered basil, fire oil (optional)**, sliced avocado crumbled feta or goat cheese Heat the quinoa and set aside.

eggplant recipes I’ve been cooking eggplant like crazy lately, but you know what? It’s not the easiest vegetable to photograph. So today I’m rounding up some old favorites as well as some recipes from around the web that are on my to-make list before summer is over. Do you have a favorite way to cook eggplant/aubergine? Easter Cupcakes Baked in Real Egg Shells I watched my Grandmother’s face when she realized that I hadn’t handed her a hard boiled egg but rather a cake baked inside a real egg shell. Her eyes were filled with wonder and I could envision what she must have looked like as a tyke the very first time she saw a red balloon float across the sky or the the trunk of a giant elephant spewing a stream of water. “Crack it on the table,” I told her. Eggs were cracked, cupcakes were eaten, and I was perceived as a cupcake Houdini. Update 3/19/2012: For the basic instructions on these Easter cupcakes, keep reading. To see another example of them with dyed eggs and cream cheese “yolk” filling, see my latest version of these Easter cupcakes.

I have a couple classes coming up this fall (shockingly right around the corner), and this Amaretto-spiked chocolate mousse recipe will be pon the menu.

Orange Pan-glazed Tempeh Recipe This might be the best tempeh recipe I've highlighted to date. It features a simple ginger and garlic-spiked orange glaze that plays off the nutty earthiness of pan-fried tempeh beautifully. Unlike many other tempeh recipes, there is no need for a long marinade time with this one, making it great for a last-minute weeknight meal. Delicata Squash Recipes Delicata is the lazy cooks winter squash. Its the sole squash I'm able to square off with in breezy fashion. Unlike working with other squash, I'm typically able to maintain composure throughout its preparation. If you've ever cursed a Hokkaido, or permanently lodged a knife in a hubbard, you know what I'm talking about. The delicata is a dream.

Broccoli Cheese Soup *Update (10/2011): We continue to love this soup (and eat it often)! I’ve edited the recipe just a bit to enhance with a bit of salt and flesh out some of the details. Enjoy! I could sum up this post by the following statement from my husband while devouring this meal: “This is the ultimate perfect dinner.” Of course it could have been atmosphere since it had snowed all day and was the perfect night for soup, but still, when we were fighting over the last scoops in the pot, I knew this had to be a winner. I received this recipe from a commenter, Liz, who has tried several recipes from here.

butternut squash + black bean enchiladas Tell me if this happens to you. You buy a 5lb squash. Butternut, spaghetti, acorn, sugar pumpkin…etc. Maybe it was on sale, maybe you plan on roasting it, or maybe even making a delicious fall soup. Cucumber Peanut Salad Recipe In addition to the Sharpie pens, the half-full mug of tea, the snapshots, the magazines, the letters to be mailed, and the stamps to go on those letters, I have two new cookbooks on my desk. Two books to really dive into. I've mentioned this before, but a number of us have been choosing cookbooks to focus on, and we've just chosen these to be next. So, if you happen to have Nigel Slater's Tender V. 1 and/or Sanjeev Kapoor's How to Cook Indian, please feel free to join us. These are the picks for the next two months, which should give you enough time to buy them or check them out from the library if you like. We did Breakfast, Lunch, Tea: The Many Little Meals of Rose Bakery last, and Moro East and The Essential New York Times Cookbook before that.
