Thai Coconut & Peanut Butter Curry

Thai Coconut & Peanut Butter Curry
The best thing to come from my kitchen this weekend was not a dessert. I know a lot of people are interested in the other things that I eat. You know, the other things besides dessert! So maybe I will give in and write a day-in-the-life post sometime soon. Until then, I’ll at least make an effort to post “Katie” Meals more often, so that nobody gets confused and thinks I subsist on chocolate alone. Oh, in a perfect world… Partially due to having grown up all over, and partially due to the fact that many non-American cuisines rely much less on meat and dairy products, I eat so-called “ethnic” foods quite often. Sauté first three ingredients in a large pot, in oil or oil spray, stirring every so often, 8 minutes or until onion begins to look translucent.

Hearty Vegetable Miso Soup Recipe Of all the places I’ve been, Japan is most definitely among my favorites. I was lucky enough to spend five years of my childhood in the country, meaning its culture has greatly impacted the way I learn, communicate, and view the world even to this day. Modern yet traditional, fast-paced yet serene, Japan is a true paradox. And it fascinates me. On the one hand, the nation is highly-efficient and at the forefront of modern technology. It is a country steeped in history and culture: the shoguns and the samurai, Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, anime and cutting edge fashions, martial arts and sumo wrestling… If you ever get a chance to attend a sumo wrestling match, take it! And then there is the food… Honestly, I could branch off and write an entire blog on my love of Japanese cuisine, encompassing everything from the traditional (sushi, yakitori, onigiri) to the not-quite-so-traditional (Pocky!!!). In a large pot, combine the first three ingredients and bring to a boil.

World's Healthiest Tater Tots! This recipe is unbelievable. I’m serious. It’s one of those recipes where you read the ingredients, roll your eyes, and say, “There is absolutely no way this recipe will turn out.” Then you try it anyway, because curiosity gets the better of you. Such was the case when I came across a recipe for no-potato tater tots in the book Superfood Kitchen. Logical reasoning was wrong. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside… And difficult to stop eating! These “superfood” taters are high in protein, EFAs, and fiber. (Reprinted with permission) 3/4 cup cooked white beans (such as Great Northern)2 tbsp flaxseeds (golden for most-authentic appearance)2 tbsp ground flaxmeal1 cup cooked quinoa (K note: I cooked my quinoa with 1/8 tsp salt)1 tbsp white miso2 tbsp brown rice flour1/4 cup finely-diced onionoil or oil spray for the pan Using a fork, mash the white beans in a large bowl.

La vraie recette du «ti punch», toute une histoire L'art d'accommoder le rhum blanc remonte au dur temps du sarclage de la canne. Le ti-punch est a priori très facile à réaliser: il suffit d’avoir à disposition du citron, du rhum et du sucre. Cependant, si l’on en croit les anciens, cette «institution» est un art qui nécessite de savoir prendre son temps. D’ailleurs, si vous vous rendez aux Antilles, vous verrez qu’on ne sert pas le ti-punch, c’est à vous de le faire selon votre convenance en suivant un rite immuable. Dans un verre de faible contenance, presser un 1/8e de citron vert (lime), ajoutez une cuillère à café de sucre de canne et remuez lentement jusqu’à obtenir un sirop brun. A une époque, la canne à sucre faisait vivre une proportion importante de la population antillaise. A 9h arrivait, le cas échéant, l’heure du «sec» (rhum pur) ou du «feu» (rhum accompagné d’un zeste de citron et de treize grains de sucre). Ainsi, versez 7/8e de rhum dans votre mélange, soit 5cl, touillez, c’est prêt. Ah! Harry Eliezer [1] Petit Pape.

Le brunch du dimanche de Downton Abbey (oeuf de Roald Dahl, bacon ,beans, champignon sur canapé et scones…encore) | petit pot de beurre Les séries anglaises ont la cote en ce moment à l’appartement; Sherlock (BBC) est toujours numéro 1 dans le coeur de Thomas, nous sommes à la fin de la saison un Life on Mars (BBC) et, depuis hier, nous sommes les heureux propriétaires de la saison un de Downton Abbey (ITV). Ce dimanche (d’ailleurs jour de diffusion de la série en Angleterre) le programme était simple: scones et premier visionnage de Downton pour Thomas. Avant les scones, nous nous sommes régalés d’un english breakfast composé de tomato beans Heinz, deux tranches de poitrine fumée, un petit champignon persillé sur son canapé et un oeuf de Roald Dahl… Cette recette vient du livre des recettes de Roald Dahl, illustré par le génial Quentin Blake, où l’on y trouve un oeuf au plat enfermé dans une tranche de pain de mie… Voyez plutôt… Pour une belle assiette (à multiplier selon le nombre de bruncheurs): Passer un peu de beurre (30 g environ) au micro-onde juste pour le ramollir un tout petit peu.
