I like salsa, but have never made it. So, I played around until salsa happened, without measuring or taking notes.
So, what was in that? Salsa
4 Roma tomatoes
some vine-ripened tomatoes
some leftover prepped peppers (about a cup)
a bushel of cilantro
2 scallions, diced
some minced garlic
some garlic powder
some dried oregano?
some dried parsley
About 3 of the Romas were diced, the rest were processed. The peppers & cilantro were also processed. Mix it all up until you are happy with the spices. This was stored & served cold with Sweets & Beets.
Every 28 days or so, I randomly go on a cleaning/cooking/washing binge, and the results are often comical. Last week’s flurry of posts was a prime example, and there were still several dishes I made after those posts! My refrigerator is now organized by category and size of item, my clothes are now organized by style and frequency of usage, and the list goes on and on.
The first little dish I made was this big salad. I don’t know what it is about my chemistry that makes me think
but ok, sure, salad is healthy. Why not?
Romaine lettuce, cut as you like it.
Oregano, dried flakes
Basil, dried flakes
A dash of ground black pepper
1. In huge bowl, place lettuce and scallions.
2. In small bowl, place mushrooms, cheese, & spices. Stir.
3. Dump small bowl contents into large bowl. Toss.
I had this mostly with balsamic vinagrette, but it was also good plain. I imagine it would be great with olive oil. It’s pretty easy to veganize this one, too, which I might try doing later. Enjoy!
I made these the other day for lunch. Boy, were they good! This is another fast & easy one.
1. Set oven to Broil/HI.
2. Line a cake pan with foil. (Unless you *like* cleaning cheese goop. If so, party on!)
3. Spray pan with olive oil. (Best invention EVER.)
4. Slice your cheddar bagel in half horizontally. (Be careful. A good friend of mine once took part of his finger off with a bagel knife. True story.)
5. Process some Campari tomatoes until they turn into mush. (This always makes me think of that scene in Goonies. RIP Anne Ramsey.)
6. Process about 3 scallions but only enough to chop them. (Or just cut them with a knife. I was on a roll with the processor that day.)
7. Shred some cheese. I used provolone and american, I think, with a touch of smoked gouda.
8. First, place the tomato mush on your bagel, then the scallions, then the pile of cheese.
9. Add some romano from the shaker and some nutritional yeast to the top of the pile. I may have also used basil, oregano, and garlic. Yummy!
10. Place in oven/broiler and keep an eye on them. I loved the little brown overcooked patches, but if I’d been much later, these would have been full-on burnt.
