Green, green and green!

Cooking Without Limits

Spring is here. We still have some snow around but it is starting to get green all around. I can’t wait to eat all those green spring miracles. If you don’t know what I mean here is a list with my favorite.

Let’s start with Wild garlic leaves. They grow in my mom’s garden and I can’t wait to use them in salad, make pesto or garlic bread.

Brussels sprouts with turmeric

Cooking Without Limits

GAB_0135_res_mix Brussels sprouts with turmeric

I always thought that Brussels sprouts are an acquired taste. I don’t think I know people that love them. I tried them when I was an adult and I wasn’t fond of them at the begging. I start eating sprouts because are very healthy.

This recipe is simple but with a mix of condiments so I don’t taste so much the sprouts. They are good with pine nuts or bacon. Today we don’t use pine nuts or bacon, but I can tell you for sure that they taste good made this way.

Ingredients:

  • 500 g Brussels sprouts
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt

  • Cumin

I would have liked to have the time and will to post all 75+, nearly 100 focaccia bread recipes by myself, or to actually bite the situation with a determination of my own and choose two or three for an Easter Tag, which this post is going to get, but, I couldn’t think that all these focaccia recipes are actually perfect on an individual choice basis for Easter and to have and hold throughout the year for use on the table. So I am posting the general link suggestion to the Italian Focaccia section of Academia Barilla here and otherwise, putting up a picture of a Margherita Pizza (below here), as what might have been the starting suggestion.
