Lemon Rosemary Grilled Cheese

This is inspired by a place by my work that does something similar, but with pear compote.

Ingredients:

* Sharp white cheddar (mine came from CostCo, the Coastal stuff)
* Rosemary bread (mine came from Trader Joe's)
* Lemon curd (another thing from Trader Joe's)
* Butter (I did unsalted, the cheddar is plenty salty enough)

Tools:

* Toaster Oven
* Frying pan and oven

Steps:

* Lightly toast one side of the rosemary bread in the oven
* One one slice of rosemary bread, put a pile of chopped up white cheddar chunks on the toasted side. Put it back into the toaster oven until the cheese gets pretty melty.
* While that's going on, spread lemon curd on the other piece of bread, on the toasted side.
* Put a pat of butter in your frying pan and melt it
* Take your melted cheesy bread out of the toaster oven, put both pieces together so the cheese of one side is against the lemon curd of the other
* Put your sandwich into the pan, swish it around, flip it to the other side--this will make sure that both sides have butter as you pan toast.
* Toast both sides of your sandwich in the pan with the butter, flipping as necessary. When it's toasted to your liking, put it on a plate.
* Tada! Fancy grilled cheese.

Beef, spinach and red lentil curry

If anyone's wondering what kind of day today is, it's the kind of day where I put a pot on to boil for pasta, and come back five minutes later to find the pot's hob cold and the one under the chopping board has melted the chopping board and a plastic container-lid.

Meanwhile, a Good Recipe from last weekend. Adapted from Campion & Curtis' In The Kitchen.

Spinach Daal with Spiced Eggplant

This is really a mash-up of two recipes, with the ultimate aim of providing Sufficient Nutrients in a single meal. The first is Jack Monroe's Spinach & lentil daal, from their second book; the second recipe is the Epicurious Indian spiced eggplant recipe. Both have been customised by me, for me. (This means they are white girl versions of indian food. Caveat lector)

White bean and fennel soup

The ancestor recipe for this is Jack Monroe's ribollita (from their second book), but I've got lazy with it, and it's drifted back in the direction of minestrone.

low-spoon, highly modifiable lunch or dinner idea

I got this idea from a Gwyneth Paltrow cookbook, and while I doubt my Publix pita bread would meet with her approval, it's a really good idea. I can think of all sorts of modifications. Next time if I feel like getting fancy, I may try adding some shredded chicken and spinach.

Amazing Pasta: Eggplant, spinach and pine nuts

In the ancestry of this recipe are a Nigella Lawson dish and a Leanne Brown dish, combined because I really needed to use up both sets of ingredients.

sausage balls

These are an incredibly simple recipe I acquired from a family friend a long time ago and are always super popular at parties: they're a small, nibbly form of protein, which is often not a big feature of most party foods.

They don't reheat very well but they taste just fine cold or room temperature. (You can reheat them once and they're fine while hot, but they turn to leather if you let them cool back off at all.)

Dietary and accessibility notes: )

Prep time: ~30 minutes, altogether
Bake time: 15 minutes

Ingredients: )

Directions: )

Despite the spiciness of the sausage, I have not found the end results to be spicy for most people. The cheese cuts through it quite a lot and it seems like you lose some of the sausage flavour if it doesn't have some kick to it.

Crockpot lemon and chickpea stew

This makes about 5 servings. It's sort of like vegetarian harira, which means I'm going to be disappointed in the way the frozen portions turn out, I suspect.

Lentil-rice salad with red pepper and feta

I made this salad for supper tonight, as I do quite often in the summer, and it occurred to me that I could also post it here. My version is a slight evolution (or more accurately devolution?) of this 2008 Canadian Living recipe. I also use the dressing/vinaigrette on normal salads.

Curried Rice with Lentils

Cheap, easy, stores well, and can be jazzed up with further additions to vary latter servings - this recipe is one of my fallback staples.

ingredients )

Instructions:
Heat oil in heavy-bottomed pot (you'll need a lid later) and saute onion and garlic until translucent. Add ginger, tumeric and curry powder and saute a few minutes longer. (Can add more oil if necessary.) Add rice and saute for a few more minutes to coat the rice. Add the lentils, stock, raisins, and sunflower seeds, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes.

Excellent served with yogurt, or with Waldorf salad.

Extras my mom recommends:
Would be good with butternut squash...roasted in chunks (with parsnips perhaps? ) or bake the squash, scoop it out and whip it with a bit of orange juice and nutmeg. Saute some dark greens (chard, spinach) with olive oil, garlic, pinenuts as a second vegetable.

Sweet Potato, Black Bean, and Corn Enchiladas

I made these for dinner tonight (well, actually, I made twice this amount and we'll have lunches to pack all week.) Simple, hearty, and healthy.
