Unrecipe of the Week: Lemon Basil Pasta

January 26, 2015

IMG_3649

This lemony pasta is perfect on its own, or as a side dish for fish or chicken. We served it last night with sauteed shrimp, and a tomato, arugula and burratta salad. It’s easy enough to whip up at a moment’s notice, and the sauce can be made in advance and kept in the refrigerator until needed.

Lemon Basil Pasta:

Whisk together the juice of 3 lemons and about 2/3 cup of olive oil.

Cook pasta reserving a little of the cooking liquid. We prefer a short pasta like rigatoni or calamaretti but any shape will do.

Toss pasta with the lemon dressing, about 2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese and a couple of handfuls of chopped basil leaves. If the mixture seems dry, add a little of the pasta water to moisten.  Season with salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy!

These oven roasted green beans with Parmesan cheese are almost as good as french fries, and way better for you!
They are simple to prepare, and work well as a side dish or an afternoon snack. Make up a big batch of these and crunch away!

Lay them on a parchment paper covered pan, and bake for about 10-15 minutes, until they are crispy. Shake the pan once or twice to ensure more even cooking.

Unrecipe of the Week: Avocado Frites

February 12, 2013

4093602633

This is a delicious and unique way to serve avocados. In this interesting twist on tempura, the avocado gets sliced, breaded and quick fried. It’s got a crispy exterior and a melt in your mouth center.

Peel and slice a ripe but firm avocado into 2/3″ spears.

Dip each one in flour, then scrambled egg, and finally Panko (Japanese bread crumbs.) Lay them out on a plate until ready to fry.

Heat enough canola oil to fully cover the bottom of a frying pan.  Fry the breaded avocado slices until golden brown, turning to cook both sides.

Drain them on paper towels to remove any excess oil, and sprinkle with sea-salt.

Keep them warm in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve. Enjoy!

*I keep thinking that these could be enhanced by adding a little grated parmesan cheese. Try adding about 1/2 cup of parmesan to the flour, and see what happens!
