Grilled Eggplant Banh Mi

I was slightly skeptical of this recipe (the portions look really small on the plate) but it’s actually rather filling and satisfying. The peanut miso sauce makes it. Photo is the sandwich in progress (you can see the results in the next post).

Recipe Variation: Whole Wheat Deep Dish Pizza

Just a note that subbing 1 cup wheat flour for 1 cup white flour in this recipe works well. We also did this half pepperoni, half chicken sausage this time, and it was quite good.

Pork Patties with Plum Sauce and Asian Slaw

John and I both thought this recipe kind of tasted like an Asian dumpling without the filling. Very nice, and the plum sauce wasn’t bad (usually I’m not a huge fan of meat and fruit together, but this wasn’t overly fruity or sweet). Bulgur’s a good filler ingredient – I’ll probably try it out elsewhere (turkey meatballs?). I added crushed peanuts and lime to the slaw (a good slaw recipe that my friend Ben makes uses both of those).

Good Combos: Indonesian Chicken + Ginger Scallion Noodles

Indonesian chicken thighs (same marinade, swap the protein) + ginger scallion noodles (made with just the sauce, soba noodles and finely chopped bok choy) + steamed broccoli = an excellent noodle bowl.

Hamburger Steaks with Onion Gravy

This recipe couldn’t be easier, and works really well with mashed cauliflower and potatoes. I added some sauteed mushrooms to the mix. I’m always happy when I can find a fairly low calorie beef dish.

Greek Salad Cucumbers

Kind of ridiculously easy but a good one to have, considering I always seem to have extra cucumbers and feta around.

Tandoori Chicken Thighs

This is a nice easy recipe for a hot day. I marinaded the chicken for at least four hours – it was nice and tender. Served with some flatbreads, raita and okra.
