Here’s a list of our shared meals from last week’s meal share program: Recipe links are provided. Please use them! We had great success with all the recipes from this week.
- Spaghetti and Meatballs using my favorite, bookmarked recipe from Epicurious (which came from my old favorite Gourmet magazine). We used bison for the meat, with a little bit of bulk hot Italian sausage. Along with this, we had Parmesan-Roasted Broccoli, from Ina Garten‘s book Back to Basics. And I couldn’t help it: I had to have a little garlic bread. Bought some herbed Kerrygold butter sticks for convenience sake this time. This was one of my more simpler meals because I was short on time. To fulfill our group’s need for more vegetables, a side salad would have been good.
- Fish Tacos. We like to try to get in fish once or twice a week, and it can be hard to find fish dishes suitable for delivering. Often we deliver it uncooked, if the family prefers to cook it right before eating. This recipe came from Bobby Flay. All the fixings were provided as well! Lots of packaging when delivering this type of meal. But so easy to adapt for all diets! We were given tortillas, cabbage, cheese, salsa, sour cream, refried beans, rice, cilantro, chopped onion, etc…
- A hodgepodge: Caramel Tofu (cooking video from Herbivoracious); Rice; Roasted Vegetables with caper sauce; Roasted Eggplant with Chermoula from one of my favorite cookbooks Jerusalem by Ottolenghi. (I’m teaching a cooking class with recipes out of the book at Whole Foods in October!). In the case of this meal, the person cooking it had a plan (instead of the tofu dish) for stuffed tomatos with bison and/or quinoa for the vegetarians. But because of well…life! and because of not finding ingredients she ended up with a cosmopolitan variety of dishes. That has happened before to me (when i made some Asian dish with some Turkish food–haha!)
As always, if you readers choose to use these recipes for your family, feel free to inquire about amounts or variations or changes to the recipes that we used, to ensure that you have a successful dish as well!
Next week, I’ll post this week’s meals. A hint of what’s coming: some Indian food, a Fall stew, and a soup, plus more!
And after that, I’m really thinking I want to do little chicken pot pies. I ADORE good old American food. I grew up in an Indian household, craving chicken fried steak and white dinner rolls from the school lunch cafeteria 🙂
Anyone have a recipe I should try? My favorite comes from the Pastry Queen, Rebecca Rather, but I’m always wanting to try new recipes!
