Lebanese Lentils, Rice and Caramelized Onions (Mujadara) Recipe : Aarti Sequeira Directions Throw the lentils into a medium saucepan. Fill with enough cold water to cover the lentils by about an inch. Meanwhile, as the lentils cook, grab a large skillet. Add the onions, sprinkle with a dash of salt and cook until they turn dark caramel brown, stirring often. Using a slotted spoon or spatula, remove about half of the onions to a paper towel-lined plate; these are for garnish later. Add the rice and cook, stirring often (but gently so you don't break the rice!) Turn off the heat, keep the lid on, and allow the rice to steam undisturbed for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, toast the pine nuts, if using, in a small skillet over medium-low heat, shaking often, about 5 minutes. Taste the rice for seasoning.

Fiesta of Flavor: Chicken Tortilla Soup I’m a sincere lover of Mexican food – I crave it at least twice a month. When I was in college, I would indulge at the local taquería in muy grande burritos and never gain a single ounce. These days, if I so much as look at a burrito sideways, I gain five pounds. Two years ago, Mr. CG and I were dining at our favorite local Mexican food restaurant. On a cold winter day, there’s nothing I want more than a hot bowl of soup And a nap. Homemade Chicken Tortilla Soup Pantry (Dry) Ingredients 2 tbsp vegetable oil Four 14 oz. cans chicken broth (or equivalent with bullion) 1 package taco seasoning 1 tbsp red taco sauce (mild or medium)* 4 oz. can diced green chiles (mild or medium) 6 oz. can tomato paste 8 oz. petite diced tomatoes – half the can and completely optional 3/4 tsp ground cumin *add another tbsp taco sauce if you like it spicy Fresh Ingredients 4 chicken breasts 14 oz. water 1 medium onion – finely diced 1.5 cups diced celery 1.5 cups diced carrots 1.5 cups roasted or frozen kernel corn
CrockPot Breakfast Risotto Day 173. I love risotto. I was very pleased with the crockpot risotto I made earlier in the year---it was cheesy and creamy and delicious. I think I just drooled a little, remembering. I was excited when I thumbed through a little Crock-Pot recipe card book that I got at the grocery store to see that there was a Breakfast Risotto recipe listed, and that I had all of the necessary ingredients in the house. The Ingredients. --1/4 cup butter--3 little apples (I had 2 greens, and 1 red in the house)--1 1/2 t cinnamon--1/8 t nutmeg--1/8 t cloves--1/4 t kosher salt--1 1/2 cups arborio rice--1/3 cup brown sugar-- 4 cups of liquid. The Directions. I used a 4 qt round crockpot for this dish. Turn your crock to high and add the butter so it can start melting. Add the rice to the butter, and stir it around to coat it nicely. Add the apples, and spices. Cover and cook on high for 3-5 hours, or on low for 6 or so. The Verdict. Oh my. The half and half did separate a bit, and created some white chunks.
twice-baked potatoes with kale As I do every year, I woke up the morning after Thanksgiving with dueling urges to consume pie for breakfast as well as to repent with an endless sequence of brothy vegetable soups until I no longer dreamed of pumpkin cheesecake, cranberry caramel almond tarts and chocolate silk. I vowed make the wholesome side triumph this year, however, yet somewhere along my righteous path to eating kale salad for breakfast, lunch and dinner, I remembered that kale salad tastes absolutely nothing like pie and that was basically the end of that. By dinner that night, we were digging into terrifying heaps of spaghetti and meatballs at Carmine’s, followed by overstuffed chocolate cannolis. There wasn’t a ribbon of kale in sight. The inspiration came from a version on Food52 created by the blogger behind Brussels Sprouts for Breakfast who had served these, I think rather brilliantly, as a side to her family’s surf-and-turf Christmas Eve tradition. Serves 6 as a side; 3 as a hearty main
