Earthy, Sweet Green Beans
To add a lively bite to the flavorful beans, toss them with a lemon vinaigrette and top them with salty, sharp Pecorino and crunchy pine nuts.
Light as Can Be
Serve them as a light vegetarian meal or mezze (small plate) with tzatziki and a Greek salad, or as a side dish to any Mediterranean-style fish, chicken or lamb dish.
Bold & Beautiful
Dry-brined spice-rubbed steaks get a nice kick from a poblano pepper.
When marinating lamb, no need to be shy with flavors that will compliment its rich and assertive flavor.
Cooking the tenderloins until buttery-smooth is key, and roasting them atop a bed of vegetables buffers the heat to ensure juicy meat all the way through, which is rubbed with herbes de Provence, salt, and pepper.
When the saucy, cheesy meatballs finally emerged from the oven, a sprinkle of savory Parmesan cheese, crunchy panko, and fragrant basil impart that familiar chicken Parmesan vibe.
The spuds are kept whole, but smashed with the bottom of a cup. Then they get mixed with the mayonnaise mixture, spread onto a platter and capped with scallions, parsley and dill.
Gazpacho in Chopped-Salad Form
Pipirrana is a summery, tomato-centric salad from Andalusia in southern Spain. This version includes tuna, and hard-cooked eggs, making the dish hearty enough to be a satisfying main course.
Easy Roast Chicken
Crispy Skin, Juicy Meat
For an easy, but impressive weeknight dinner, turn a simple roast chicken into a fabulous poultry dinner by rubbing it with za’atar.
Reminiscent of Gazpacho
Although Salmorejo is more pink-orange, and is also much thicker and creamier in texture, because it includes more olive oil and bread. It is served cold and is garnished with chopped Spanish serrano ham and diced hard-boiled eggs.
An elegant low-carb salad that’s bulky enough to feed four as a main entrée.
Vitamins And Minerals
The flavor components of tangy lemon, briny capers and aromatic garlic all combined together in a silken butter sauce is paired with spinach with its range of valuable vitamins and minerals, and navy beans with their high nutritive value and protein content.
Thick Cut Pork Chops
Pork Loin Chops
Grilled thick-cut pork chops accompanied by a pepper, tomato and garlic sauce with a side of amazing skewered potatoes!
Great Side Dish
Blanching the green beans first ensures they stay bright green. Use any style of tomatoes, or a combination of several such as grape, cherry, plum, etc.
Sweet Italian Sausage
Layer of Umami Complexity
Sweet Italian sausage, topped with melted provolone, tomato pesto and garlicky spinach all nestled in a toasted ciabatta roll.
Corn On Cob
Corn is King
To meld the dish, extract pulp and milk from corn cobs and collect the juices, then add the corn pulp to the skillet with the kernels. This way the sautéed corn gets creamy, and the individual ingredients come together as a unified dish.
Roasted Red Peppers
Coca is Open-Faced Like Pizza
The sweetness of roasted peppers is balanced by the brininess of jarred artichokes and capers. A sprinkling of fresh thyme offers herbal notes, while sliced prosciutto adds depth and savoriness.
Red Orange Color
Grilled Pork Chops
It’s likely you’ll have the ingredients for the wet spice rub already in your pantry. Among them would be paprika, which lends a fiery red-orange color, not to mention a sweet and slightly fruity taste with very mild heat.
Ripe tomatoes and roasted eggplant come together to yield a hearty filling, made even better with the addition of Italian sausage.
These babies marinated in orange, lemon and basil are lickety-split fast, extremely simple, and so freakin’ yummy!
