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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

fritatta and popover harmoniously meet ~

The lightness of a popover and the richness of a fritatta...my perfect paring for any meal.  This recipe can be adapted to fit what ever you like with you morning or evening egg dishes. I used sausage and potatoes with fontina cheese. But you could do spinach and goat cheese with sun dried tomatoes or ham with potatoes and gruyere. Parmesan with pancetta and arugula would be lovely as well.  Just about any flavor combination you love would work.  The batter is less eggs with the balance of the base coming from flour.  I used chick pea flour but all purpose [...]

roast chicken ala emily ~

My favorite roast chicken recipe is the spatchcock one we have on our web page. Although it does call for a slathering of butter...so I recently discovered this recipe posted on FOOD52 by Emily C which calls for brining the bird in buttermilk and pickle juice...with a soupcon of Sous Salt of course.  So if you want to avoid the consumption of butter this is a lovely alternative which she derives from the preparation of fried chicken for flavor and tenderness. ingredients 1 whole chicken 1 c buttermilk 1 c pickle juice (any type) 1 t Sous Salt Herb and & [...]
