Another this looks so good…
Vegetarian (and Vegan) Spaghetti Bolognese
Holy hell! I am drooling.
This looks amazing.
Monday lunch- tandoor chef vegetable pad thai
These look amazing. I feel a little shitty though b/c I am thinking of making the with cream cheese instead of tofu. I eat vegan very often, but sometimes, I want that richness from real cream cheese and sour cream. I know that richness comes with cruelty. I am so weak.
Another great looking recipe. I hate cilantro, but my chipotle lime crema would be awesome with this. Maybe I should share that recipe?
Spicy Quinoa Cakes with Lime & Cilantro Sour Cream
I’ve been obsessing over making quinoa cakes since I had them at Lodge in Williamsburg a few weeks back…
2 cups cooked Quinoa (I used a combo of black and white quinoa)
3 Eggs, lightly beaten
1 Jalapeno, seeds removed, minced
1 clove Garlic, minced
1 small Red Bell Pepper, chopped in to small pieces
1/2 cup chopped Cilantro
3/4 cup Bread Crumbs (plus more if needed)
Salt to taste
1 small container Sour Cream
1 1/2 Limes
In a bowl, season quinoa with salt. Add garlic, red pepper, 1/4 cup of cilantro, jalapeno to the quinoa and mix together. Add eggs and toss together. Add bread crumbs and mix together. Let sit for a few minutes until the liquid is absorbed (you’re going to form patties, so add more breadcrumbs if it’s too soft, or a little bit of water if too dry). Form into patties with your hands (whichever size you like, but make sure they’re not too thick). Heat olive oil in a saute pan. Cook each side of the patties on low/medium heat until brown, carefully flipping over. For the sour cream, combine remaining cilantro and juice from the limes and mix together. Top quinoa cakes with lime & cilantro sour cream and serve.
I totally want to make this. It looks divine. I can imagine serving it with Spanish rice since I am not much of an egg person.
Sweet Potato Hash
I served this with a sunny side up egg and a simple mash of avocado, tomato & cilantro
2 Sweet Potatoes, chopped small
1 small Onion, chopped
1 Green Pepper, chopped
1/2 Jalapeno, minced
1 Tbsp Paprika
2 Tsp Chipotle Chili Powder
1 Tsp Cumin
2 Tbsp Extra Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Over low/medium heat, saute chopped onions with a pinch or two of salt for about 4 minutes. Add potatoes and stir in with onions. Turn up heat slightly and cover. Toss potatoes every 2-3 minutes until soft. Add jalapeno, season with paprika, cumin and chili powder and toss to coat. Turn up heat a bit to crisp/brown potatoes. Add chopped green pepper and salt & pepper to taste. Once pepper is a bit soft, remove from heat and serve.
After a 15 hour work day on Friday, I had one of the best weekends in recent memory.. lots of swimming at Rockaway Beach; Balkan music and cold beer; the Renegade Craft Fair, where I picked up some delicious Salted Honey Caramel Creme from BumbleBerry Farm and this stately otter print (by Ryan Berkley) that brings me extreme joy.
Today I stumbled across this rope message in Soho that someone had left for any passers by.
Romance isn’t dead y’all.
