Not Cooking up a Storm… Cooking up some really God awful weather!
I cooked all these meals except for the one with the fish.
Barley and lentils with porcini mushrooms, brussel sprouts with olives, raisins and pistachios– These were both variations of recipes from The Philosopher’s Kitchen, which I love.
Experimenting with seitan: sauteed with tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, and spinach.
Turnip and rice soup– sounds humble, but it was INCREDIBLE. Deborah Madison is God. We were actually out of arborio rice, but regular short grain Japanese rice did the trick. It was served with small cubes of gouda and a grating of parmesan… somehow it was so savory, just like chicken soup!
We ate it with braised red cabbage with shallots, apples, leftover lentils, and pinto beans, plus salad.
