Breakfast Greens

GREENS! And not the kind that starts with a “K” and ends with cruciferous christ incarnate ”ale”.

If you don’t already like greens, this probably won’t be the recipe that changes your mind, but it’s definitely my go-to when I need a quick way to shovel greens into my face.

Breakfast Greens

  • A skillet full of greens of your choice (collard, turnip (pictured), mustard,…kale) + enough water to steam
  • A clove or two of garlic, thinly sliced
  • An egg or two
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Steam greens in a covered skilled until they’re about half cooked.

  2. Add in garlic and crack in the egg(s)
  3. Continue steaming until egg is done to your liking (residual heat will cook it a little more)
  4. Salt. Pepper. Shove into face.

Summer Parfait

Hope all my local Georgians survived Hothlanta*/SnowJam 2014. 

imageMy bf, with a shopping cart?—after 6+ hrs in the car he and his friend gave up, parked, and walked another hour to get home. Hot chocolate, tea, and biryani were shoved on them as soon as they made it through the door. 

Sorry, just had to mention that. On to the real post. Parfait.

imageimage

It’s summer parfait because this is what my bf essentially lived off of this past summer. I get that I’m kind of in the wrong season, but I didn’t post it before now because I wanted to have homemade granola and yogurt posts done to link to. It took a few months for me to realize that if I wait for everything to be perfect before I post, it just ain’t happening.

imageimage

Layers of honeyed yogurt, crunchy pecan granola, and sweet summer berries make this a really simple and fresh dessert. If you lightly honey plain yogurt and make sugar-free granola, it’s mostly healthy too.

We love strawberries+blueberries+raspberries, but ripe peach and blackberry are also great in it.

Now that I’ve embraced the fact that my posts don’t have to have perfectly enumerated recipes, I’ll be spamming your dash more often.

Summer Parfait

  • Yogurt+honey (will hopefully have a homemade yogurt post up soon)
  • Granola (and a granola post)
  • Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries (or whatever strikes your fancy)
  1. Chop strawberries and layer into a glass
  2. Spoon in some honey yogurt
  3. Sprinkle on granola
  4. Repeat with remaining berries
  5. Devour

*favorite new phrase.

Grice

Sorry ‘bout the long time, no post.imageimage

You can offer my boyfriend a 5-star, top-chef, orgasm-in-your-mouth meal (one that somehow has an ice sculpture and live fire worked into it), and he would turn it down for Grice.

(I think we call it “Grice” as a truncation of “Egg Rice.”)

It’s caramelized onions and peppers, topped with eggs sunny side up, set on a bed of rice, hit with a downpour drizzle of kecap manis (sweet soy sauce) and sriracha, and garnished with green onion (and a sprinkle of childhood nostalgia).

It’s nothing fancy, but it was his go-to meal as a kid. Not guaranteeing it’s gonna hit your spot, but it works for him so I thought I’d share.

Grice
Serves 1 Hungry Partner

  • 1 cup of cooked rice (we use basmati, but any would do)
  • 1/2 medium onion + 1/4 bell or poblano pepper, sliced
  • 2 eggs, fried
  • Sriracha + Kecap Manis to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1-2 green onions, sliced
  1. Caramelize* onions and peppers on medium heat (I usually give the onions a minute head start while I cut the peppers)
  2. Assemble everything in the order above.
  3. Feed to partner. Sneak a few bites.

*Not an authentic, painstaking caramelizing, just a light browning to bring out the sugars. But caramelizing sounds better.

Anonymous asked: i made a trial batch and had trouble with the mix melting in my hands. the few i did make were great after i left 'em in the fridge and the hardened. i was afraid to over mix the whipped cream. should i add more cocoa and mix a bit more?

Yeah, if they’re too soft, I would add more cocoa powder and chill well before rolling. Glad you’re making them! Let me know how they turn out!

Vegetarian Gyro

Boyfriend says you can’t make a gyro without the meat. Challenge accepted…

…and completed. With a bite in his mouth, he’s like “alright, maybe it’s good.”
That’s some high praise right there.

Made with seasoned and grilled shitake mushrooms and tempeh. MmmmMmmmm.

I Got Feet!!!!

A billion egg whites later…

image

Horrible little deformed feet, but feet! I was kind of giving up hope that it was possible to make ugly macarons with stevia.

I’ve still got a long way to go, but at least I know I’m on the right track. Will post once I’ve got something that doesn’t require a bag over its head first.
