recipes that have more vegetables

My favorite combo is cucumber, a little mild anaheim chile and lime.   I guess avocado could be added for a creamier body, but I like the lighter clearer juice style.    Also, I add cilantro, I forgot, but that's not for everybody.

Breakfast. Figured Moe needed some protein after last night's "Pie for Dinner".

Scrambled eggs with fried back bacon and white cheddar. Toasted sourdough baguette.

Take note @Margaret Pilgrim...(who has an endless supply of leftover ham from the holidays)you could use HAM instead of back bacon....just a thought.  The eggs look delicious...adequately coated in bacon fat I might add. 😁

Moe's breakfast.

 


Baked Potato with Broccoli.
This is the biggest baked potato I've ever baked.
Was over 7 1/2" long and weighted just over 1 1/2 lbs.

I bought a box of Russet Potatoes yesterday and they are all huge.

Took over two hours in a 400°F oven.

That’s my idea of a baked potato!

I used to buy the big 20-lb. bags of bakers at Costco...potatoes were huge.

These days I can’t eat that much, I”m lucky if I can eat Half a normal-sized one.  But I still love potatoes in any form.

Actually Canadians use metric.  But old habits die hard.🙂.

 True but our ovens still arrive using the Fahrenheit scale and all our recipes still use the Fahrenheit scale so we are only pseudo metric!

At my last rental the oven was in Celsius, and I needed to print out an equivalency table and tape it up beside the range.

After a year or so I got used to it, but it definitely required thought (unless I was working from an overseas recipe, in which case it was pretty simple).

Husband returned from London very late last night.  I always send him photos of what I am cooking while he is traveling, and his first request was that he wanted breakfast tacos like I made for myself the other day.  So, I did tacos again this morning, but with bacon added

I've had an old box of matzo in need of being used, so I decided to pretended it's Passover and make matzobrie.

Served with rosewater and cinnamon flavored date paste; and walnuts.

I was looking for something to make with sweet potatoes and sausage and came upon a recipe for Sweet Potato Hash with Caramelized Onions, Sausage & Eggs that sounded good.  Reading through the comments, it seemed like people were having issues with getting the individual ingredients cooked to their liking and I was getting hangry so I made a deconstructed version

IMG_1763.thumb.jpeg.d317c4ff4004f7405f3b3ec65d3c0b51.jpeg

Roasted sweet potatoes, halved and heated on the Phillips grill while the Italian sausage cooked and topped with roasted balsamic onions with sage and a bit of watercress for color.  

The sweet potatoes, onions and sausage would have been a fine breakfast but I went ahead and added 2 crispy fried eggs.

One of my favorite breakfasts is cubed sweet potatoes, stir-fried with onions, and at the last minute, some pulled pork barbecue tossed in just long enough to get hot. Top it with an over easy egg sprinkled with some barbecue dry rub and drizzle the whole thing with a little sauce. Pretty awesome.

Another sweet potato breakfast today.  This one inspired by a Diana Henry suggestion for turning a baked potato into something more substantial.

First time poaching duck eggs. Egg number one was an epic fail. It stuck like glue to the bottom of the pan I normally use for poaching eggs. After that disaster I reached for a nonstick pan which is really not deep enough to properly poach an egg. I basted this one almost constantly with water. As you can see it wasn’t entirely without injury.

Well that's quite an achievement! I've been poaching duck eggs for decades and although I've had failures (freshness issues usually), I've never known a poached egg to stick to a pan - and I don't use non-stick pans. Well done! Proud of you!

Another Diana Henry baked potato idea translated into a sweet potato breakfast

IMG_1773.thumb.jpeg.382a8bbbe7b32128f4ce7fe8256df340.jpeg

Her suggestion is to scoop out the flesh from a baked potato and mash it.  Sauté minced onion in butter, add cooked ham and a bit of cream.  Mix that with the mashed potato and cheese (she recommends camembert, Cheddar or Gruyère, I used the Beecher's New Woman that's flavored with Jamaican Jerk spices), refill the potato skins and bake or broil.

Truth be told, I usually get the Protien Plus granola from Aldi. But memory tells me my favorite recipe was from Epicurious. 4 cups oats, 1 cup nuts, 1/2 cup assorted other seeds, 1 cup coconut. Dressing of 1/2 stick butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 maple syrup,  spices taste ( cinnamon,  ginger, allspice). Toast in 350F oven for 40 minutes, stirring periodically.

      I've already polished off half a box of Harvest Crunch Granola today. I haven't really eaten cereal in years, but these crunchy granola clusters are hard to resist.

      ALMOND CUSCUS WITH CRANBERRIES AND PINEAPPLE
       
      I hate getting up in the morning. My household knows that before 8 o'clock I'm unbearable, and because almost every day I wake up much earlier, I tend to be unbearable more frequently than I want. Every extra five minutes of sleep is priceless, so I appreciate a good breakfast that is not too complicated and is quick to prepare.

      Recently, I have been preparing breakfast with groats and flakes. This time I chose cuscus. This product is a cross between pasta and groats, and it doesn't need long to prepare. It is enough to add hot water or milk and leave for a few minutes. I added some fresh pineapple, cranberries and banana. I spiced it up with some hot chili pepper .

      Ingredients (for 2 people)
      125g of cuscus
      400ml of almond milk
      1 tablespoon of honey
      1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
      2 slices of fresh pineapple
      1 teaspoon of minced chili pepper
      150g of fresh cranberries
      2 tablespoons of brown sugar
      1 banana
      4 tablespoons of flaked almonds

      Wash the cranberries and put them into a pot. Add two tablespoons of water and the brown sugar. Boil, stirring gently until the cranberries burst and the sauce has thickened. Boil the almond milk with the vanilla essence. Pour the milk onto the cuscus and leave for 5-7 minutes. Slice the banana and roast the almond flakes. Peel the pineapple and dice it. Mix the pineapple, chili pepper and honey. Add the pineapple to the cuscus and mix it in. Put the mixture into two bowls. Put the cranberries and banana on the top and sprinkle with the almond flakes.

      Enjoy your meal!

      LUNCH FROM THE JAR, I.E. LAYERED SALAD IN THE OFFICE
       
      Most of us take lunch boxes to the office. Some lucky people can warm their food up at work The rest have to eat sandwiches. Sandwiches are great, but even if we absolutely love them we could get fed up with them in the end. Regardless of where we work we can save the situation with salads. Every day we can prepare a different one and we have an entirely new lunch. If we also take an attractive dish, we have something that is not only tasty but also glamorous.

      I would like to share with you the recipe for a salad which looks equally as beautiful as it is yummy. The chickpeas and groats make it a satisfying and balanced meal, after which we won't be hungry. I think that if you prepare your lunch in the morning and plan to eat it at lunchtime, we should keep the salad and the dip separately. Otherwise, after a few hours in the jar, we have an unappetising dish with squishy lettuce, which isn't what we want, is it?

      Ingredients (for 2 people)
      1 beetroot
      200g of tinned chickpeas
      100g of bulgur
      1 carrot
      1 fresh green pepper
      4 lettuce leaves
      200g of natural yoghurt
      handful of minced chives
      1 small chili pepper
      salt and pepper

      Clean the beetroot and bake or boil it. Grate the beetroot and carrot. Cut the pepper into thin strips. Boil the bulgur in salty water. Arrange in layers in a jar the beetroot, chickpeas, pepper, bulgur, carrot and lettuce. Dice the chili pepper. Mix the natural yoghurt with the chives and chili pepper. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Add the dip to the salad just before serving.

      I developed this recipe for a friend who wound up with many cans of Solo brand apricot filling and was wondering what to make with them. I adapted this recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum's Sour Cream Coffee Cake, found on page 90 of the Cake Bible. The apricot filling works it way down through the cake and winds up near the bottom of the pan, making an attractive top later when the cake is inverted. Please use some sort of ring pan that holds at least 9 cups. You may substitute butter for the toasted almond oil, but remember that the oil adds flavor. I specifically developed this recipe with the home cook in mind, regular salted butter, and AP flour work well here. To reduce the sodium, use unsalted butter.  
       
      Ingredients
      113 grams (1 stick) salted butter
      26 grams toasted almond oil
      200 grams sugar
      6 grams vanilla extract
      4 egg yolks
      160 grams regular sour cream (do not use low fat or fat free)
      50 grams almond meal
      175 grams all-purpose flour
      2 1/2 grams baking powder
      2 1/2 grams baking soda
      12 ounces (1 can) Solo Apricot Filling
       
      12 Servings
      Preheat the oven to 350°
      Spray a 9+ cup tube or Bundt pan with non-stick spray or grease with an oil & soy lecithin blend.
       
      Lightly toast the almond meal in a frying pan on the stove top until it has a light beige color and has a mild fragrance. Allow to cool.
       
      Cream together the butter, oil, and sugar. Add the vanilla and egg yolks, mix until the mixture is even and creamy. Add the sour cream and mix well. Add the cooled almond flour and mix well.
       
      Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture and mix until it everything is evenly incorporated. Do not overmix the batter.
       
      Place 2/3 of the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Place the apricot filling in an even layer on top, keeping a small space between the filling and the pan's edges. Place the remaining batter on top and smooth to create a relatively even surface.
       
      Bake for approximately 50 minutes at 350° or until the top is dark brown and springs back to a light touch.
       
      Allow to cool for 15 minutes. Invert the pan onto a serving plate. Cool and serve. Be cautious about serving this hot, as the apricot filling can cause serious burns. When fully cooled, cover or wrap in plastic wrap to store. Will keep for several days in a cool, dry place.

      Holiday brunch.
       
      During the holiday, eating is a waste of time for my children. Although breakfast should be a balanced and calm meal, at this time it is eaten quickly and carelessly. Sometimes I need to wrest my children away from their play and nourish their young bodies with brunch.

      Today I would like to share with you the recipe for a very simple egg and vegetable brunch. Though my children like all vegetables, the look of the food made them anxious. Only the soft boiled eggs settled them down and got them eating. After a while there were two empty glasses in the dishwasher and my children could go back to playing. It was good, because the holiday is almost over.

      Ingredients (for 3 people)
      half an onion
      2 cloves of garlic
      1 tablespoon of butter
      300g of courgette
      1 red pepper
      2 tomatoes
      2 sprigs of rosemary
      2 sprigs of thyme
      3 tablespoons of minced chives
      3 eggs

      Dice the onion and garlic and fry them in butter. Remove the core from the tomatoes. Cube the courgette, tomatoes and red pepper. Put one of the cubed tomatoes to one side. Add the second tomato and the rest of the vegetables to the onion and stew on a low heat for 10 minutes. Boil some water and carefully put the eggs into the water. Boil for 5 minutes. Cool them down and carefully remove the shell. Mix the stewed vegetables in with the rest of the tomato. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Put the vegetables into a cup. Arrange the eggs on top and cut them up with a sharp knife. Spice up the egg with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the chives.
      Serve at once.

      Enjoy your meal!
