La Tornade de Mardi

Each Tuesday, Wardeh at encourages us to share what’s been twisting in our kitchens over the past week.

Welcome to La Tornade de Mardi, the Tuesday Twister for October 13th!

1) Roasted Winter Squash Roasted winter squash with smoked bacon, poblano peppers, onions and toasted cumin seed.  These flavors were just meant to come together.

2) Avocado Black Bean Quesadillas Ridiculously inexpensive and outrageously good, I say.

3) Rib-eye Steak Far superior in taste, grass-fed beef is at its best when simply prepared using just a few ingredients.

4) Pindi Chana A traditional, healing curry of tomatoes, onions, chiles, cashews and spices fried in ghee with chickpeas, plump raisins, fresh pomegranate seeds and cilantro.  Even people who “don’t like Indian food” tend to love this dish.

5) Roasted Corn Chowder with Scallops and Bacon I got a shout out from the extraordinarily generous Top Chef Master Rick Bayless on this one.

6) Shirred Eggs with Grilled Ham, Peppers and Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Shirred duck eggs with grilled smoked ham & peppers, roasted tomatillo salsa and fried tortillas.

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.  Now let’s go see what our most talented neighbors have been up to!

  1. Oh Ren! I had managed to put that beautiful steak that left me drooling the first time around out of my mind. And now here it is again. I’m back to drooling.

    I somehow missed your corn chowder that got the shout out. It is amazing! Congrats on the recognition. You deserve it.

    • I think its like that song that you just can’t get out of your head until you sing it through. You may need to get yourself a steak.

      Thanks, Millie 🙂
