Since I couldn't get the rest of the pictures for my cookday on Monday to post I thought I would try again.
I had heard an old wives tale that if you leave the pit in the Guacamole it wouldn't turn burn. I can varify from the client on Monday, that's not true. When I loading Tuesday's food, I did see brown in the Guacamole bowl.
Baba Ghannouj is baked eggplant, with various ingredients and then all of that is pureed. It's meant to eaten warm with warmed slices of pita bread. I didn't used to be a huge fan of eggplant but the last few years, I have just loved it anyway it's fixed. This is an Indian (India) recipe. It's very easy to make and even easier to eat!
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Baked Fennel with Crumb Crust
I know this is covered with organic bread crumbs and you can't see the Fennel too well but it is under there. I have never baked it but have used it with tomatoes plenty of times over the years. Most folks have no idea what it is and when they hear that it has a licorice test, they baulk at the thought of eating it. Once the fennel is split into quarters and then boiled for about 10 minutes, there is only a faint flavor of licorice.
Farfalle Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Spinach
I could not find an Farfalle pasta at the organic store, so I substituted with another kind of pasta. Using a flat small pasta works the best. Penne is too heavy for this pasta salad.
Here is the rest of the menu for Tuesday...I sadly did not act quick enough to get pictures.
Vegetable Pot Pie
Greek-Style Lentil Salad
Wednesday I made...
Lentil (Red) Chickpea Burgers with Coriander Garlic Cream (I did not make the Coriander Garlic Cream. I could not find a good Vegan substitue for cream, so I bought Veganaise and added the spices and garlic to that for the client to spread on their whole wheat hamburger buns. I left them sliced tomatoes and lettuce leaves for the burgers.
Hawaiian Salad (this is a strange list of ingredients but this is my second year to make this for the clients) The ingredients are-green peas, red grapes, cantaloupe, oranges, apples, pecan pieces, bibb lettuce, roma tomaotes, mint, canola oil, and cider dressing.
Sugar Peas and Carrots in Lime Butter
Broccoli and Cauliflower Gratin
Quinoa with Corn and Potatoes
I hope that I am invited back to cook for some of the family members again, but if not, it was a wonderful experience and I got to try tons of new recipes.
