I promised something on orecchiette for today (10/25/2019 for the sardinian gnocchi posts below this today) and then I realized there is nothing more to say about it than that it might also be a substitute for the malloreduss pasta if not available easily in the supermarket.
But I also liked this recipe. So, then, orecchiette, off the review check list.
Sausage, Beans and Greens Pasta
And for today, it’s not part of the topic really, but I just thought they were too outrageous not to share. Definitely a list to keep for all the times you have to plan a special day with sandwiches. Any special gourmet day with sandwiches, any time.
Soft Shell Crab Sandwich with Slaw
Here are a few hummus recipes to keep meanwhile. They have no burgers or anything else attached to them. But remarkably, I forget that there are also red pepper vegan burgers, red beet vegan burgers, mushroom vegan burgers and soy bean vegan burgers besides the more typically found and marketed chickpea burgers, eggplant burgers, avocado burgers, black-eyed pea burgers and so on.
What I used to think was whatever anyone meant by vegetable burgers, was a large, sturdy bun filled up with grilled vegetables by choice of course, smothered in some kind of delicious sauce and topped with the rest of the bun; so it was dripping good fun maybe with some tomato and lettuce condiment or pickled vegetable spread.
You know: grilled squash, grilled eggplant, grilled tomato topped with burrata and cucumbers, grilled avocado, grilled artichoke, grilled asparagus or grilled beans chopped with tomatoes and cucumbers, maybe; you know and combinations of the kind.
And I thought it was so funny that fast food chains would make it their problem to grill, freeze and reheat & re-plate grilled vegetables and condiments on buns. But then I realized that wasn’t the thing they did.
That was quite a long time ago, but I still remember it. I was all for that. Seriously, I still believe vegan burgers per se belong on a separate fast food marquee, than on a burger and sandwiches menu. But I have already presented my ideas on that on today’s posts.
Seriously, wouldn’t it be absolutely wonderful to find a list of all of these great burgers and the vegan sides that could be their partners in a complete fast food restaurant of their own? It would, I think so.
So I’m done with this subject today, except that, I still have to find some ciabatta recipes and maybe recipes for chopped salad to finishing proving my point to myself about better vegan alternatives on the burger side.
“Atta or chakki atta is a wholemeal wheat flour, originating from the Indian subcontinent, used to make flatbreads such as chapati, roti, naan, paratha and puri.
“It is the most widespread flour in the Indian subcontinent.”
A place to buy the actual Chapati or Atta Flour is here:
Well, one last one on the grapefruit included recipes for today.
(I think I might look up some coconut included recipes too though.)
Unbelievable! Who would have ever dreamed it! I mean to see an article like this in Bon Appetit. It’s kind of like reading, “What to do if you suddenly find yourself destitute? Easy suggestions for pulling together an online portfolio of public resources and sticking to the basics until help arrives!”
But okay, wow. I think everyone must of heard of this kind of thing by now.
Well, wouldn’t it be interesting if Vitamin companies & OTC drug companies got involved in the purveyorship of goods of this kind. It might increase their sales and the awareness of whatever their home-medical solution sales are.
I would never put Greek Yogurt on top of this unless I thought I was giving up to the spirit of eternity and a picture perfect memory. (But I don’t like Greek Yogurt.) I would rather think of a tablespoon of sour cream if it needed something tart to bring down the spice. But otherwise, the antidote of chili, is sausage and beans in sauce or else sausage and something like lentils (this is for the minority who isn’t that big on chili except for saying yes to it all the time because of the friends they have who love chili). And adding the Greek Yogurt can’t be the right answer to chili, so it can’t be the right answer to this — it isn’t a salad even if it’s healthy-ish for you. Okay that was going too far in criticizing the fetish end of high-end gourmet recipes, which the Yogurt addition is, I think, I am saying.
But I would add some garlic bread, even if it’s frozen because I don’t have an original recipe for garlic bread to offer myself. And maybe an endive/mixed greens salad with yogurt dressing, sure!
