Inspired by recipes in George Lang's The Cuisine of Hungary - a simple, goes-on-anything horseradish sauce. It has been great twist to all sorts of basics - baked potatoes, egg salad, and any number of soups and stews.
To make great guacamole you have to go off-recipe. It's all about the in-between steps, decisions, and knowing when avocados are at their best.
Eggs poached in white wine peppered with minced shallots and herbs. A simple twist that immediately transformed the humble poached egg into something just a hint special and unexpected. Served over smashed avocado on toasted bread.
I'm posting this spring roll recipe from Morocco, they were much needed for the flight over. Rice paper wrappers with brown rice, tofu, avocado, chopped hazelnuts, and a slather of intense oregano sauce. Plus a few snapshots of the trip so far.
A good number of you were curious about the tofu and amaranth salad pictured next to those chive pancakes I posted a few weeks back. Here's the recipe. Thanks for your patience!
Whisper thin crepe-like pancakes made from brown rice flour, coconut milk, eggs, and sesame seeds. And my preference in pots and pans.
A simple bowl of toasted rolled oats finished with a bit of miso, then topped with a load of minced chives, walnuts, baby radishes, and a thread of cream. Also, a few snapshots from Los Angeles.
A quick sauté of yellow wax beans, golden almonds and pepitas, topped with threads of tiny micro scallions.
Beautiful raspberries tossed with saffron brown sugar, vanilla paste, olive oil, and toasted almonds.
To get the smoothest, creamiest hummus using chickpeas, you have to peel them. For creamy hummus, without the extra effort, I use mung beans instead. They work beautifully. Top the hummus with shallot oil, fresh chives, and za'atar.
