You can use it instead of couscous. I personaly like it with pisto, a ratatouille-like dish:

(I use these quantities when cooking for myself and i get two or three servings.)

1 medium to large aubergine
1 large courgette/zucchini
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1 medium or 2 small onions (any, I tend to use red)
1 can pureed tomatoes (500 g?)
1 fresh chili, if you like it spicy
tomato paste
garlic
herbs: thyme, oregano, basil, rosemary (fresh or dried)
olive oil

1. Chop aubergine and courgette in thick chunks, salt and place in a colander while you prepare the rest.

2. Chop onion in thick slices, peppers in chunks, chilli in small flakes.

3. Crush garlic (1-3 cloves, to taste) and add to pan iwth olive oil, brown on medium heat.

4. Add herbs (if using fresh, they need to be thinly chopped and all hard stalks removed).

5. When it smells good, turn heat up and when the oil is very hot (careful not to burn the garlic), add aubergine and courgette and star stirring immediately so all the chunks are evenly covered with the oil. Aubergine will soak up lots of oil very quickly, so you do this to make sure all chunks are coated in oil so you don't have to add more.

6. Because the heat is high, stir often. The aim is to get all chunks turn a nice golden brown colour, for flavour, but they shouldn't be cooked through.

7. Add peppers and onion, stir again, there should be some oil left for the onion, if not add a bit.

8. When peppers and onion start to become soft, add chili flakes, stir a few times more.

8.5 - Add extras (*)

9. Add 1-2 tbsp of tomato paste, stir in well so it absorbs any excess oil.

10. Add pureed tomatoes, stir well, turn heat to low and cover.

11. Let it cook like that until it's done. I got no idea how long that is. Basically, after 20 min I taste, add salt as necessary (no sugar cause the vegetables should make it sweet enough, but to each their own).

12. If you think it's ready, you can add the quinoa -fully-cooked according to the packet instructions, or almost cooked so it finishes cooking with the heat of the pisto.

(*) Extras: you can sicillise this dish adding at this point chopped olives and capers or anchovies (as they're salty, bear that in mind when seasoning afterwards); or mexicanise it by adding at this point a can of cooked red, black or kidney beans (boiled, no sauces! and rinse before adding) and some smoked paprika and ground cumin.

Cauliflower soup

1 cauliflower
1 large onion
1 liter of veg broth

sautee onions in olive oil till glassy, add broth and bits of cauliflower and cook for quarter of an hour.
Blend well until it is a creamy soup.

Add the juice of 1 lemon, salt and pepper and nutmeg.

Man, the lemon really makes a difference. It turns cauliflower into a light summer soup!

Clover, that sounds great! I'm going to give it a try, but possibly without the eggplant.

This sounds delicious, but won't it make you fart like billy-oh?

Did we ever talk about a "World's End Recipe Book"? We could sell them and give the proceeds to CBLDF or something.

Anyways, POINT ME TO THE EGGPLANT RECIPES! I got some in my organic veggie delivery last week and all I can think is "eggplant Parmesan".

There was a whole spate of eggplant recipes a few pages back, in case you missed them. See subsequent pages for some tasty-lookin' eggplanty recipes from clover.

That looks SO GOOD! *salivates*

I gave G~R's Peanut butter & Oreo-pie a try on Saturday and took it to my best freind's boyfriend'S birthday party, but it was so hot that it all fell apart and became goo with crumbles by the time we wanted to eat it. Frown Also, it's definitely too sweet for my palate.

Maybe I'll try to make it more cheesecake-y and keep it in the fridge next time.

(not really a recipe, 'cos I didn't measure anything)

Hot Italian sausage, chunks of that (out of the casing, although this is stuff we mixed up ourselves and never bothered with casings) fried with some pureed onion (or just carmelise some slices) and coffee.

Sauce was a really good sized dollop of sour cream, some squished garlic, some black pepper, a shake or so of yellow curry powder, a pinch of parsley flakes and a handful of parmesan cheese - heat up everything but the parmesan and add then when the sauce is bubbling, then stir.

Boil some noodles (I used egg noodles, but spaghetti or fettuccine would work fine too)

I kept the sausage and the sauce in separate skillets, just because I didn't know if Dad would like it, but it was pretty good. I got the idea from a recipe google and it said to add paprika, I was going to use chicken chunks, but thought, the sausage already has paprika, why not use that? So I did. It was nom.

Tried this for my birthday and it turned out great. I copied it from something I had on a takeaway, so there might be more complete recipes out there. Also, no measures because I improvised and this was for 20 people. Just go with whatever seems right for you Big Grin

Mango noodle salad with lime-mint dressing and hoisin chicken

Make the dressing (more than you think you'll need):

Limes
Finely chopped mint
Some olive oil, some fish sauce, some rice vinegar

Cook rice noodles/vermicelli according to packet, cool with cold water, drain well.
Add half the dressing to noodles, mix well and let them absorb flavour.

Add:
Iceberg lettuce, in julianne
Diced mango (not too ripe or you won't be able to dice properly)

and the rest of the dressing, mix.

Sautee diced chicken -I marinated it in the hoisin sauce for an hour beforehand, but it might be best to sautee first and add sauce later. Anyways, make sure it's well-done, and add to the rest.

It's very yummy Smile
