I have to admit, I'm not the biggest tofu fan. I think that is, however, because of how it's prepared a lot of times. Fried though? I can get down with some fried anything. This recipe was really easy to make and the flavors were a little different than what we usually cook in our home, so it was a welcome change. This is also a great way to use our house fermented sriracha.
These wraps are great to make if you are wanting something flavorful, but you're in a rush. It only takes about 20 minutes to throw this together! These kinds of quick meals are making me super happy right now because this time change has me tired!
If I were told that I could only have one meal for the rest of my life I would choose a well executed Butcher Board, hands down. On a great board each part of your palette gets exercised and you can come up with different flavor combinations making it a great crowd pleaser for dinner parties, as well!
The other night when I couldn't sleep I scrolled through pages of Pinterest posts and I found this yummy looking recipe for Red Lentil Patties with Spicy Tomato Jam. I wanted to give it a try this week thinking that it would pair really well with a small batch of Curry Cauliflower I knew we were going to put up!
Pickled red onions are the new go to pickle to add zest, acid and spice to salads, burgers, meats and spreads. Where ever I seem to travel to I'm seeing these delicious little babies speckled all over menus from New Southern restaurants to American Seasonal Cuisines.
Our Smoked Paprika Tomato + Basil Jam was created a few years back when I was looking for an updated way to glaze meat loaf. When I was growing up my mom made meat loaf often and she would always add ketchup to the top of it before baking it to create a sweet burnt tomato sauce over it. When I got older and lived on my own I'd find myself craving meat loaf as a comfort food, but my palette had changed and I wanted a meat loaf that reflected that. I thought maybe jam was the trick, along with adding other ingredients into the meat.
In our kitchen right now we have a limited small batch of Cowboy Candy and Cinnamon Clove Sweet Pickle Relish. We were itching to use them in a dish, so we spent our Sunday making home made Pimento Cheese and perfecting our Johnny Cake technique to create a delicious savory pancake dish. Cowboy Candy is candied jalapeños, so the sweet heat makes for a wonderful topper with cheeses!
