This tasty tart is great for a warm, savory lunch along side soup or salad, or as an appetizer for dinner. It can be dressed up with a drizzle of herb oil or pesto, and the sweet and salty combination will satisfy most palates! Also, not only is it is relatively easy to make, it offers great bang for your buck as the only expensive ingredient is the cheese.
I know there are a lot of recipes out there that say you can caramelize onions in 25 minutes, but I really recommend letting them cook for around 45 minutes so that the sweet flavor really comes out.
This recipe is an example of just completely winging it in the kitchen, and using up whatever I could find! The only really decent ingredient I had was the Portabellos - everything else is basically a kitchen staple, and when I 'developed' this recipe, I just raided my fridge to find all of the 'Italian' flavors that would go together well.
The stuffing in these Portabello caps has a very bold flavor, and melds perfectly with the earthyness of the mushrooms. I also made some grilled chicken with a light marinade of sundried tomato pesto and garden salad (and no, I didn't put a sundried tomato vinaigrette on the salad, although I sure thought about it!!).
This salad just tastes like summer! There is no other way to describe the fresh, vibrant flavors in this simple Caprese Salad, which is arguably the best and easiest way to showcase good quality produce. I don’t recommend compromising on the quality and trying to cover up the lack of flavor with seasoning. This salad doesn’t require much, but it does super duper benefit from fresh heirloom tomatoes, basil and mozzarella.
Since we all like lighter meals in the summer, I am starting a summer specific series of recipes. We don’t want mac’n’cheese on repeat all summer, do we? A few days ago, I was experimenting with Halloumi on the BBQ, and wanted to share some tips with you that I discovered along the way. I did a combination of Halloumi cubes on skewers and Halloumi ‘steaks’ which are larger pieces laid flat on the grill.
Since summer is here, I feel like it is my responsibility to provide some light-ish cheese recipes! I know that this classic goat cheese, beet and arugula salad with an orange vinaigrette will satisfy your summeriest cravings.
Ok, so it isn’t quite cinco de mayo, and cinco de mayo will definitely be a more subdued virtual celebration for us all this year, but here is a great cheesy recipe featuring double cheese!
I wanted to post this early so you have time to collect your ingredients in your once-a-week-quarantine friendly grocery run, and to give you time to book your cinco de mayo zoom virtual fiesta with all of your friends.
