easy chicken parmesan ~ really!

This recipe is very similar to my sheet pan harissa chicken. Super easy to put together and quick to cook. I used my Tomato Sauce but you could easily pick up your favorite jar of marinara sauce from the market. Also I used boneless chicken thighs but you could substitute them for chicken breasts. I did not include a vegetable but you could easily add a chopped eggplant or a diced winter squash. Feel free to use any of our other Sous Salts as well. The Porcini would be superb as would the Olive Thyme or the Herb & Garlic. Normally [...]

black rice, farro, vegetable medley ~

Love black rice...it has a wonderful nutty flavor and is full of the same antioxidants you find in blueberries. In this dish I combined it with farro, another one of my favorite grains. You can either cook them separately or together as their cooking time is similar. Just know that if you cook the farro with the black rice the farro will absorb the black color of the rice. So if you want a different color variation cook them separate according to package directions.   ingredients 1 cup black rice, cook per package directions 1 c farro, cook per package directions [...]

potatoes colcannon ~

Love these potatoes ~  Just the right amount of crunch from the cabbage and scallions. Perfect with a corned beef or pot roast. Adds a lightness and creaminess to any stew actually.

spinach & artichoke pie ~

Spanikopita fans this is a wonderful dish...easy to prep, bake and enjoy.  Instead of squeezing the spinach to get rid of the water I saute the moisture out of it with the shallots and artichoke hearts.  Saves my shirt from spinach stains as I always seem to splash spinach juice all over the place in an attempt to dry it out! Also I love the addition of artichokes to the spinach. The balance counteracts some of the bitterness spinach may have.  You can substitute any cheese you prefer as well. Either feta or goat cheese works as a creamy base. But [...]

chicken curry ~

I love a good curry and always thought they had to simmer for hours. This one doesn't! I did you a combination of curry ingredients to develop the richness. I used green curry paste and our Sous Salt Curry spice blend which is a wonderful compilation of  12 seasonings that add a balance to the flavor without a lot of heat.  If you want it hotter you can use red pepper flakes or a hot variety of red curry paste. I garnished it with crispy garbanzo beans that I put in the food processor to pulverize and then sautéed in olive [...]

chicken harissa ~ sheet pan style

Cooking all of your dishes ingredients on a sheet pan not only beautifully melds the flavors but guarantees a quick and easy clean up. For that reason this is one of my favorite go to dishes.  You can flavor it any way you choose.  This particular recipe I use a blend of tomato sauce and Harissa. Feel free to try dijon mustard with white wine, or just tomato sauce, a blended salsa would work as well as a roasted tomatillo. ingredients ~ 6 - 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs 1/2 c Harissa 1/2 c Marinara Sauce (or tomato sauce) 1/3 c [...]

smokey tomato vinaigrette ~

This particular vinaigrette can be morphed into basically any sauce you might fancy.  Use it as a sweet and tangy salsa, add it to an aioli for a terrific sweet kick, toss it in a pasta salad or drizzle it on grilled vegetables. It's an awesome addition to you cooking on the fly nights! In this recipe I flash seared the tomatoes in a dry skillet until they were blistered however you could easily toss them in olive oil sprinkle them with whichever Sous Salt you love and roast them in a 400 degree oven for 25 minutes until they are [...]

eggplant roulades ~

The velvety texture of the eggplant is perfect with the cauliflower rice mixture. I used parmesan but you could use Italian Fontina or mozzarella. The pine nuts add a crunch to the filling. A good jar of marinara works perfectly or make your own tomato sauce.  We have a great recipe for roasted tomato sauce.  Make a big batch and save it for other dishes in the week. Alternatively you can serve these room temperature with a Tahini & Lemon Sauce as featured in the recipe by Carmen @everylastbite. I morphed her filling to my taste and have included her Tahini [...]
