Poffertjes (Dutch Mini Pancakes)

Apr 17, 2016 by

I did not realize till most recently that “poffertjes” is a typical Dutch dish. You can’t find the poffertjes pan here in the USA.  I did find something similar like a poffertjes pan in my local China shop  this takoyaki pan, which is a good substitute for a poffertjes pan.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 ½ cup milk
  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 1 egg
  • butter
  • white powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Warm the milk till it’s about 110F add the yeast and 1 tbsp sugar. Wait till the milk mix is bubbly.
  2. Add the salt and an egg to the flour. When the milk yeast mix is bubbly add to the flour and stir. whisk until you’ve reached a smooth batter. Put in a 150F oven and let it rise for about ½ hour. Pour the batter in a squirt bottle.
  3. Heat the poffertjes pan on medium high (I don’t have one, but this one will do) add some butter and squirt the holes half way full. Flip the ‘poffertjes’ after about one minute, or until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and some butter if you like.

Green bean Casserole

Mar 28, 2016 by

Saw this Green Bean Casserole recipe on food network good eats and just had to make it, instead of the can of mushroom soup recipe. I am trying to stay away from the can goods and buy the fresh stuff. Not to say that this is a healthy dish, but it can be if you leave the half and half out and just use broth ;).

Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp kosher salt or sea salt
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, rinsed, and trimmed
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 12 ounces mushrooms
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • french frech fried onions
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Bring a gallon of water and 2 tablespoons of salt to a boil. Clean and cut the ends of the beans.  Add the beans to the boiling water and blanch for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander.
  2. Melt the butter in a 12-inch cast iron skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms begin to give up some of their liquid, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and nutmeg and continue to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add the broth and simmer for 1 minute. Decrease the heat to medium-low and add the half-and-half. Cook until the mixture thickens, stirring occasionally, approximately 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in ¼ of the onions and all of the green beans. Top with onions. Place into the oven and bake until bubbly, approximately 15 minutes.

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Mar 25, 2016 by

 

I am a big fan of tasty recipes. Stuffed bell peppers is one of their recipes I just had to try this one. It definitely was not a disappointment. It’s easy to make and perfect for a weekday.

Ingredients:

  • 3-5 bell peppers
  • 1/2 lb ground beef (93%)
  • 1 cup onion – diced
  • 1/2 can black beans – rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 Can Corn
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • 2 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1/2cup Mexican cheese
  • Guacamole
  • Sour Cream

 

Preparation:

Cook the brown rice according package instructions.  Cooking brown rice takes twice as long as white rice. I used 2  cups water and 1 cup brown rice, wait till it gets to a boil, put the lid on it and then simmer for 40 minutes.

While the rice is cooking clean and core the bell peppers. Put in a preheated oven 350F for 20 minutes.

While the peppers are roasting and the rice is cooking, heat oil in a large skillet over medium/high heat. Add ground beef and season with the 2 tbsp taco seasoning. Brown the beef, then add the diced onion – continuing to cook until softened. Reduce heat to Medium. Mix in the rinsed black beans, brown rice, corn, and salsa. Remove from heat.

Remove peppers from oven and fill each with the taco mixture. Top with the cheese and return to the oven for 15 minutes until the cheese has melted. Top each pepper with a generous scoop of the prepared guacamole and sour cream.

I had enough leftover ground beef mixture to make quesadilla’s the next day.

Chipotle Guacomole

Mar 25, 2016 by

Chipotle posted their recipe for Guacamole. It’s so easy. I need to stop overthinking about the ingredients of those chain restaurants. Usually their dishes do not need a lot ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp cilantro (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup purple onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 jalapeño, including seeds if you like it spicy (finely chopped)
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt

Preparations:

Choose the right avocado. It should feel squishy yet firm (like the palm of your hand), and be a nice dark green color on the inside.  Chop the cilantro and cut the avocado in half.

Remove the pit (carefully!)  Scoop the avocados and place in a medium bowl.

Add the salt and using a fork or potato masher, mash until a smooth consistency is achieved.  Chop the jalapeño and the purple onion Fold in the remaining ingredients and mix well.  Add the lime juice. Taste the guacamole (over and over) and adjust seasoning if necessary.

  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp curry powder
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp chili paste or pepper
