If you’re craving pasta, this vegetable-based version will hit the spot. It’s easiest if you have an attachment on your mixer that will make nice noodles for you, but a similar effect can be gained by using a potato peeler to create long strands of zucchini.
Tomatoes – chopped into 1/2″ cubes
Basil (preferably fresh)
Either peel the zucchini by hand or use the spiral attachment
Toss with olive oil
Pan fry for just a couple minutes – so the “noodles” just start to soften up
Mix in fresh tomatoes and basil
Thanks to Local Catch Monterey Bay for another week of seafood adventures! This week we were lucky enough to get a bag of squid, when we had a big bag of limes that needed to be used. Hence the ceviche! It’s a very basic recipe, made from referencing a few different websites, and adapted to the ingredients we had on-hand.
1 lb squid
1 bunch cilantro
1/2 – 1 large onion
1/2 red Onion
2 small leeks – white and light green pieces only
3 Tbls butter
2 lbs tomatoes (from our garden!)
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 tsp fresh ground blk pepper
sea salt and pepper
1 1/2 tbsp dried dill
herbed goat cheese to top it off
Sauté the spinach, chopped up celery and bite-size chunks of asparagus
Add the eggs and scramble
Top with sliced tomatoes and cucumbers, smother with salsa!
Serve over a waffle or two!
First make bacon waffles
Second fry up some eggs in the bacon grease
Then make fried chicken patties…
We used leftover chopped up chicken
Mixed it with mayonnaise
Dipped it in flour
Fried it in the leftover bacon grease
Finally pile everything together with garnishes
Enjoy with a beer! For breakfast? Well, it was a binge day!
Over a bed of lettuce, layer chopped up cucumber, celery, tomatoes, garbanzo beans, avocado and, of course, bacon. Dress with a pre-made vinaigrette or olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
1 lb petrole sole
6 limes- juiced
1 tomato chopped
1/4 of a green pepper chopped
1 celery stalk chopped
1/2 red onion chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 tbsp white vinegar
1/2 tsp each salt & fresh cracked pepper
A few shakes of Tabasco
Our newest idea: Mindless Monday! What’s deal with that? Well… we’ll be the first to admit that some of our recipes are a little time consuming. So we thought we’d highlight some of the easier, quicker, less time-intensive options. This also means that the recipes are open to interpretation. Think of Monday recipes like the Pirate Code “they’re more like guidelines.”
Saute the spinach and onions in an oven proof pan until spinach is wilted and onions are translucent
Whisk the eggs (8) together with some milk (1/2 cup), salt and pepper
Add sun-dried tomatoes, and chopped up sausage to the spinach in the pan, if you want
Pour the egg mixture over all of it
Pick up the spinach with your spatula to let the egg seep under
Cook on medium until egg is about half way done
Layer on as much goat cheese as you want (or not!)
Pop into the preheated oven (400F) for about 15 minutes
Done when the egg is cooked through!
