My quiches are totally pastry-less; I use thinly sliced sweet potatoes that bake until tender but crispy, adding a slightly sweet flavor, striking orange color, and whole host of nutrients.
The sweet and spice of the mole in this grilled cheese sandwich plays off the richness of the chorizo and black beans, and the spicy marinated onions bring all of the flavors together.
The Gobbler is a great way to use your Thanksgiving leftovers. You can substitute cranberry sauce for the tapenade and day-old green bean casserole for the fried shallots and green beans. But what makes this recipe great is that it gives you the opportunity to celebrate Thanksgiving year-round.
Cooking fish on the skin side, which protects the meat from direct heat, leaves it so moist and tender that I can’t quite imagine any other way to cook it. This makes for quite a lunch or supper, particularly when you serve it with basic grilled leeks and a chilled Saumur- Champigny.
This is a recipe for ambitious home cooks: there are multiple steps, and you’ll dirty a sauté pan, a sauce pan, and a paella pan—if you have one. You’ll chop, sauté, and grill. And, the payoff is huge.
The confluence of lightly charred shrimp with crunchy cabbage slaw and an audacious amount of hot sauce is my idea of the perfect warm-weather meal.
