Food dice #5

basil, curry, asparagus, tofu, garlic, olives, fruit, rice, broil

dinner

Went w/a sort of greek curry here. Made a basic curry, but used "regular" basil instead of Thai basil, and broiled tofu. Topped with feta. Apricot lassi for dessert.

It turned out surprisingly well, but I'd want to tweak the recipe if I made it again. I'd want to accentuate the "Greek" part of the curry, maybe tweaking the spices some. The lassi, while delicious, was way too thick! It needed more yogurt, and probably some milk or something to thin it out. I don't think I added any sugar, which was fine. There's enough in the fruit.

dinner 2

I think I forgot to add the chick peas to the curry the first night. Leftovers!


Food dice #4

cilantro, eggs, spinach, cayenne, nuts, braise, fruit, pudding, rice dinner

breaded fried soft-boiled eggs with cayenne pepper. Side of braised spinach with onions & sunflower seeds.

Oh my god, these eggs were delicious, but really hard to make. Peeling hard-boiled eggs is difficult enough, but when they're jiggly and about to burst? And once they were breaded they were still tricky to fry. But worth it.

dessert

rice pudding with fruit compote.


Food dice #3

cilantro, bacon, curry, grill, cheese, peas, millet, tofu, fruit

dinner

tofu, snap pea & "bacon" curry, on a bed of millet. Used thai basil instead of cilantro because that's gross.

This was okay. Not great, but pretty good.

dessert

some sort of fruit & cheese mousse, I think?

Whatever it was, I remember wishing I made more. Now I wish I remembered the recipe.
