I apologize about this one, folks. I made it, not thinking it would be anything special, so there are no step by step photos. Just one, glorious photo of the final product. My God, this one was good! Tasty sauteed seasonal veggies doused in a creamy masala spiced pasta sauce, then topped with a tangy and sweet tamarind sauce. Yep! This one fulfilled all my dreams for Indian food at the moment!
Creamy Masala Spiced Pasta
You will need:
1 medium zuchini
1 sweet bell pepper
1 small onion
1 cup rose pasta sauce
2 tbsp masala spice
2 tbsp mild sweet curry
1 tbsp cumin
3 tablespoons sweet tamarind sauce (I got mine from remedy cafe)
Cooked pasta, to serve
Begin by chopping up and sauteing your veggies in a little butter. Boil your water for the pasta. Add the rose sauce and the spices and heat until warmed. Serve on top of some tasty pasta of your choice and drizzle the tamarind sauce on top to serve. Enjoy. A lot!
Pinterest can really get the imagination flowing. Especially when you’re craving cheesy, gooey anything. That’s why, when I stumbled upon a philly cheese steak photo on that wonderful site, I just had to make it – my own way, of course!
Then wrap them in foil and pop them on the grill. We let them crisp up on the grill for 10 mins before checking on them, and they were PERFECT. Seriously. Make this tonight! (It’s way too hot to cook indoors anyway!)
Grilled Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches
You will need:
For the filling:
1 red onion
2 sweet bell peppers
1 package of sliced grilling steaks
1 tsp seasoning salt
1 tsp hickory smoke flavouring (if you don’t have this, don’t worry! It’s optional.)
1 tsp garlic powder
8 hoagie buns
1/2 tbsp each of chipotle mayonnaise
1 cup aged white cheddar cheese
Begin by dicing your veggies and sauteing them in a pan for 5 mins on medium-low heat. Add steak and seasoning and cook together. Prepare your buns by slicing them, then adding the mayo. Add the filling, then the cheese and wrap in aluminum foil. Grill for 10 mins and serve warm on a hot summer’s evening.
Now I’m not one to fry things at home, but when a friend asked us to bring a unique item to a weenie roast, how could I resist bringing crispy, fried onions? These were super simple and disappeared quickly once we arrived at the party. First things first: Use a red onion. You could use a white onion, but these were so incredibly flavourful that they added so much to the recipe!
You will need:
1 large red onion, cut into thin slices
1 cup milk
1.5 cups AP flour
1.5 tbsp seasoning salt
2 cup canola oil
Soak you onion pieces in milk for about a half hour. Heat oil in a medium pot. Mix you flour and salt. Test the to make sure it’s ready to go by pinching a tiny amount of flour into the oil. Once its sizzling, you’re good to go. Drench the onions into the batter, then transfer to the oil. Let crisp and turn brown on both sides, then transfer to a paper towel to drain. Enjoy on their own or as a topper to your favourite foods.
