I am reluctant to post recipes.

I don't follow any really... I might look at a few to get ideas...

Often it's hard just to give a name to what I cook :24

But just for fun I will share what I am cooking today.

I am NO VEGETARIAN... but I do make some vegetarian dishes.. mostly adapted from original recipes that contained meat that I have adapted over the years

Vegetarian Stroganoff
(Adaptation of Beef Stroganoff)

Saute (In a generous amount of (NZ) Butter)
Onions
Garlic
Green Pepper
Sliced Mushrooms (The more the merrier... common button type better than fancy types for this recipe)
Season to taste
Add a little freshly ground nutmeg

That can be done ahead of time and left in the pan.

Before serving reheat (gently) add chopped fresh tomatoes (and a chopped Shallot - Optional)

When heated stir in A pot of sour cream... allow to heat up but do not boil!

That is it.

I serve it with plain boiled rice. Often a green veg on the side. Frozen peas works well.

Also supply nutmeg and grater....for individuals to add to taste.

Today.....

Adapting a recipe that I have used for years... nowadays call it "Corny Rice"... because its rice with a small amount of whole Kernel corn :24
I normally serve it with roast chicken thighs, but today using up some frozen prawns (Shrimp)

Paella (sort of)

Sauté prawns (shrimp) first.... set aside.
Then..... sauté onions, garlic, green pepper, celery (in NZ butter)..... add three quarters of a cup of uncooked basmati rice, to coat rice in the flavoured butter. add small amount of frozen corn, seasoning to taste, and water to just cover,
(I do add a generous amount of Saffron strands (soaked in a little boiling water)... it gives flavour and the well known yellow colour of Paella... but it's optional)

Simmer for twelve minutes.

Add the pre cooked prawns (shrimp) and some chopped fresh tomato... cover again and cook for a further 5 minutes.....

I'd add some fresh chopped parsley if I had any... but none in stock today. :97

That is it.

It is I guess a simple Paella? In fact I do the same with the addition of some white fish and some fresh Mussels (shells and all)... then it really is more of a seafood paella

Grilled Tuna Burgers with Spicy Mayo
Recipe courtesy Guy Fieri

Image

  • Prep Time: 30 min
  • Inactive Prep Time: 20 min
  • Cook Time: 15 min
  • Level: Intermediate
  • Serves:4 servings

Ingredients
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 pound sushi-grade tuna, finely diced
1/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper
2 scallions, finely sliced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
Vegetable oil, for cooking
4 seeded hamburger buns, split
Spicy Sriracha Mayo, recipe follows
4 medium butter lettuce leaves
1 beefsteak or heirloom tomato, sliced
Dry Riesling, for serving

Directions
Add the sesame oil, soy sauce, red pepper flakes and egg to a large mixing bowl. Mix well, then fold in the tuna, red bell pepper and scallions. Mix well to coat everything evenly. Sprinkle with salt and fold in the panko breadcrumbs to lightly bind everything. Carefully form the mixture into 4 even-size patties and set on a platter. Refrigerate so the patties firm up and hold their shape when cooked, 15 to 20 minutes.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Coat the pan with a little vegetable oil and cook the tuna patties 3 minutes per side (when done, the patties will be browned on the outside and medium-rare in the center).

Grill the hamburger buns over high heat until well charred and crispy.

Serve the tuna burgers slathered with the Spicy Sriracha Mayo, lettuce leaves and tomato slices on the toasted, seeded hamburger buns, paired with the dry Riesling.

Cook's Note: When grilling the bread, you can grill 3 to 4 scallions at the same time for use in the Spicy Sriracha Mayo.

Spicy Sriracha Mayo:
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/2 tablespoons Sriracha
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon honey
4 grilled scallions, chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, Sriracha, sesame oil, lemon juice, honey and scallions in a large mixing bowl. Stir well to combine, season with salt and pepper and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Quick Gnocchi
Make tender delicious gnocchi using instant mashed potatoes to slash prep time. Blend egg, S & P, flour and mashed potatoes into a dough... cut into bite size pieces and cook in boiling water. Serve with the sauce of your choice.

Makes enough for two. CAN DOUBLE IT!

Ingredients ~
1 cup dry potato flakes
1 cup boiling water
1 egg beaten
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

Directions ~
1. Place potato flakes in a medium size bowl. Pour in boiling water, stir until blended. Let cool.
2. Stir in egg, salt and pepper. Blend in enough flour to make a fairly stiff dough. Turn dough out on a well floured board. Knead lightly.
3. Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a long thin roll, the thickness of a breadstick. With a knife dipped in flour, cut into bite size pieces.
4. Place a few gnocchi in boiling water. As soon as they rise to the top of the pot, remove them with a slotted spoon. Repeat until all are cooked.

Fran's Chicken
(This recipe has many names. I always called it Fran's Chicken because she gave me the recipe
decades ago. )

This is a great recipe! SO EASY! I have been making it for decades. ONLY 4 ingredients.
I have NEVER heard of anyone who doesn't like it!
Here it is - in Slow Cooker form. (Ideal Slow Cooker size 3 - 4 qt.)

Chicken in Piquant Sauce ~ SLOW COOKER.
16 oz. jar of Russian Dressing
12 oz. jar apricot preserves
1 envelope dry Onion Soup mix
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves.
______________________________
In a bowl mix together the dressing, preserves, and dry onion soup mix.
Wash and pat dry with paper towels the chicken.
Place your chicken breasts in your oiled slow cooker.
Pour the sauce over top of the chicken.
Cover and cook on High 3 hours, or on Low 4 hours or until chicken is tender but not dry.
Don't lift the lid. Everytime you do, you lose 20-30 minutes of cooking time.
Variations:
1. Drop the salad dressing and use two 12 oz. jars of apricot preserves. Substitute ham or turkey for the
chicken breasts.
2. In the bowl - - substitute K.C. Masterpiece BBQ Sauce for the Salad Dressing. Add 1 cup pineapple chunks and/or 1 cup Mandarin Oranges, with or without juice.

packy :28 It's like a sweet and sour thing. EVERYONE loves it, really. Do try it.

Please start cooking. I have a friend whose "wife" would not cook, ever. They ALL ate out everynight.

Just found out he has a 90% heart blockage, which makes it IMPOSSIBLE for them to operate on his cancerous brain tumor.
That is what made him fall in the first place ... and started this whole thing - the "search" for what is.

Please, drink V8, or Mott's Garden Blend and try to start cooking healthy ... in your home. We want you here! :19

Getting older IS NOT for SISSY'S. :(

Just thought I'd post because I just took a "Bacon and Egg pie" out of the oven.

I think it is "NZ" recipe.. probably Australians have pinched it and claim it's theirs.

Very simple thing to make...... 200 - 330 gms of bacon rashers (no rind) cut into pieces...line deep pie dish with pastry.. I like short pastry... flaky is probably more typical.

Spread bacon pieces then break in eggs... any number you want... depending on how many servings you expect. I used 9 eggs today.. meal for two for two days. There are two technique.. break in eggs and mix just a little with a fork.. so you retain some white and some yell parts (I favour that), or you can beat the eggs (as you would for an omelette) for uniform yellow egg. Season to taste, but IMO it needs a little salt and WHITE pepper.

Pastry sheet as top.

Bake 180 deg C (350 deg F)
Time depends on depth of pie, number of eggs... check after 30mins.. when pastry looks cooked :24
Also the top of the pie puffs up noticeably when its cooked (settles back as it cools) . Today 9 egg pie took 45mins.

There are variations.. where peas (YUK!) onions (double yuk) and other veg are added.... they are all TRAVESTIES!!!!!!

Bacon and egg pie is standard party and picnic food in NZ.. can be served hot or cold.

I am using it as a meal.. warm with tomato and cucumber slices as a simple salad ( only fresh ingredients I have in fridge) :24

R sounds neat! I never heard/thought of that kind of pie. I wonder if you can put ANYTHING into a pie?
You cook off the bacon first - before you putting it into the pie I guess?

There is a guy on the Foodnetwork who says you can make anything into a sandwich!
Chicken Parmesan, Eggplant Parm, peppers and eggs. I guess you can.

You can tell I love Italian food. There was a time, way back, when that was the only great food around Philadelphia. We also had Chinese food. Then we started seeing all kinds of French Restaurants popping up all over the place! I was glad! :69

No you don't cook the bacon.

I had trouble with that.... and did try cooking it for a while... but it's not what you do :24

The Original Yumm Bowl

(Enough sauce for 8 servings)

Mary-Charles Rasbach

Image

Eugene, Oregon might be famous for three things: the University of Oregon, Nike footwear, and Café Yumm. This is a make-at-home version of famed Café Yumm’s signature dish: their original Yumm Bowl. A positively addicting vegetarian entree, this bowl is guaranteed to win you over to vegetarian delights even if you’ve never been able to stomach rice and beans before, thanks to the unique, rich, and tangy sauce.

ingredients
For the Yumm Sauce:
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup grape seed or canola oil
1/2 cup almond meal or finely chopped almonds
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 cup cooked garbanzo beans
1/4 cup cooked soybeans or 1/3 cup tofu
1-2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried cilantro

For the original Yumm Bowl:
Brown rice, cooked
Black beans, cooked
Shredded cheddar cheese
Salsa
Diced fresh tomato
Sliced fresh avocado
Sliced black olives
Sour cream
Fresh cilantro sprigs


directions
For the Yumm Sauce:

1In a small measuring cup, mix together the water and lemon juice. In a separate small measuring cup, measure out the appropriate amount of oil. Set both aside.
2In a blender or food processor, process the almonds, nutritional yeast, garbanzo beans, soybeans or tofu, garlic, salt, curry, oregano, and cilantro together until almost fully ground, about 15 seconds.
3Scrape down the bowl with a rubber spatula. With the machine running, add lemon juice-water mixture in steady stream through feed tube. Scrape down bowl and continue to process for 1 minute. With the machine running, add the oil mixture in a steady stream through feed tube; continue to process until the sauce is smooth and creamy, about 15 seconds, scraping down bowl as needed.
4Transfer the sauce to a clean bottle or jar, cover, and refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to blend.
To assemble the Yumm Bowl:

1Place a scoop of brown rice in an individual-sized serving bowl, then layer a scoop of black beans over the rice. Drizzle the rice and beans with a desired amount of Yumm Sauce, then sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the rice.
2Spoon a dollop of salsa in the middle of the bowl, then spoon the tomato, avocado, and olives around the perimeter. Place a dollop of sour cream in the center of the bowl, garnish with some cilantro sprigs, and serve.
notes
Careful not to go too overboard with the Yumm Sauce! The prepared sauce from Café Yumm has 70 calories and 7 grams of fat per tablespoon!
