Tuesday Twister

Each Tuesday, Wardeh at gnowfglins.com encourages us to share what we’ve been up to in our kitchens over the past week.

Here’s a glance at what’s been cooking around here..

1) Grilled Mango Salad with Aji Mirasol Bacon Dressing Fresh ripe mangoes, avocados and an aji mirasol-infused balsamic bacon dressing over watercress and field greens.  I really liked this one, but it wasn’t particularly popular with my readers.  Oh, well.

2) Pan-Seared Salmon, Fresh Peas and Mustard Beurre Blanc I really liked this one too, but my readers weren’t impressed.  Tough crowd!

3) Huevos Rancheros Fresh, pastured eggs poached in roasted tomato salsa with fresh tortillas.  Garlic, cumin, Aji Mirasol (a Peruvian chili whose  means looking at the sun), onions and cilantro. A long-time favorite in my family.

4) Salade Niçoise Américaine A primal, seasonal all-American version of the venerable French Salade Niçoise.

5) Chili Lime Delicata Fries, Avocado Mayonnaise Wedges of oven-roasted delicata squash, seasoned with smoked chili powder and fresh lime, served with homemade avocado mayonnaise.  This one drove a ton of traffic  🙂

6) Smoked Beef Brisket Good old fashioned hickory-smoked Texas beef brisket with chili BBQ sauce.

7) Horchata Horchata is a traditional agua fresca made from rice, almonds and cinnamon. Really refreshing and costs just pennies to make.

8) Grilled Cheese Soup Homemade vegetable stock, sourdough croûtons, fresh basil, scallions, Roma tomatoes and raw cheeses.

  1. Wow, I need to learn how to use a digital camera better! These look amazing (and personally those first two sound like my favorites- I can’t wait to try that salad!) Also I loved your nicoise recipe. Yummy!

  2. Well, I sure can’t figure out what is wrong with your readers – those dishes look amazing. I’d like to try all of it! I think I’ll start with the Horchata. The brisket is making me drool. Thanks for sharing in the Twister, Ren! See you next week (Lord willing and the creek don’t rise)!

  3. Oh my gosh, Ren! I am just blown away by the amazing things you do! Both your cooking and your photography are so incredible! I’m right now working on the lacto-fermented salsa you featured a few weeks back. Got the whey separated from the yogurt. Now I just need to prepare all of the veggies. Can’t wait to see how it comes out! Thanks for the clear directions on your superb site!

  4. You posted detailed instructions on how to convert Milk kefir grains into Water kefir. When process was complete you instructed to put cultured liquid in 2 grolsch bottles and then add100% grape juice to the bottles until 2/3 full. YOU FAILED TO GIVE THE SIZE OF BOTTLES. Can you reply with size of bottle?
    I started the process today so will be needing this info in 8 days, hopefully, if I am successful
