As I type this, our furnace is out and my fingers are like icicles and I’m about 5 minutes away from turning on the oven and sticking my hands inside. I don’t understand how 60 degrees can feel so warm and pleasant outside, but inside, it feels absolutely frigid. Shiver. So let’s get down to business so I can turn off my computer and sit in front of the fireplace until my extremities are no longer numb. Here’s what I ate this week:
Caramelized Onion Hummus // I officially give up on trying to make hummus myself. I can never get it right. I had planned on posting this recipe next week, but it was a disaster. It was way too thick and the more liquid I added to thin it out, the blander it got. So I give up! If you want a hummus recipe that involves caramelized onions, try this one: Baked Asiago & Caramelized Onion Hummus.
Thai Green Curry Vegetables + Brown Rice // We bought a jar of green curry sauce the last time we were at Trader Joe’s. I had no idea what to serve it with, so I used an eggplant, mushrooms, baby corn, broccoli, and basil leaves. The sauce was a little bit too spicy for me, although the flavor was nice and fairly authentic.
Blooming Bread // I found this recipe from Culinary Adventures in the Kitchen on Photograzing–it’s bread stuffed with caramelized onions, cheese, (veggie) bacon, and mushrooms. The grocery store was out of ciabatta rolls, so I got a rosemary demi baguette instead and I skipped the bacon, but THIS IS SO GOOD! So good that I had to put it in all caps. Make this now!
Farro Risotto with Wild Mushrooms & Asparagus // Risotto is a lot of work when you make it with rice and it’s still a lot of work when you make it with farro. But in my humble opinion, farro risotto is more worth the effort than risotto made with rice.
Chocolate Gingerbread Cheesecake Bars // These were my treat for the week. Well, they were more like my husband’s treat, since he ate most of them. It works out well that way.
