In several of our recipes, we have used sunflower microgreens as a garnish. They add an interesting smokey flavour to salads, sandwiches, and soups.
They are difficult to find in the stores in our immediate area, but are simple to grow right on your windowsill or counter. They take 7-14 days, depending on the amount of light and the temperature of the room. In the upcoming days of winter, they will add a spring time cheer to your kitchen, and your plate.
We have found a very well reasearched article on the speculated nutrition of sunflower microgreens, which are assumed to be more nutritious than just eating the seeds.
Ribs are a summertime favorite at our house, but as the weather gets colder (and wetter) there is less motivation to fire up the BBQ. Here is a delicious recipe you can cook in the oven.
Kemp likes to binge watch Matty Matheson on the Munchies YouTube channel, and took his inspiration for the nut crust from Matty's Back Alley Ribs.
We've all had those days when you come home after a long day at work, and just too tired to prepare an elaborate meal, but want something more flavourful than frozen food. Here is how you can enjoy a spicy, savory meal in less than 30 minutes.
This is our family's current favorite recipe, and we serve it with grilled vegetables and chicken broth rice.
There are 3 things cooking together, so the game plan is to put the rice on to cook, marinade the shrimp, cut the veggies, cook the shrimp and then cook the veggies and plate your meal.
Toasted rice adds a crunchy, nutty, slightly bitter flavour to dishes, similar to toasted almonds.
It is one of the quintessential ingredients to make Laap - Laotian beef salad.
Traditionally made from glutinous rice, you can substitute regular rice. Be sure to open a window or turn on the fan in the hood of your stove, as making this can get a bit smoky.
Laap is the unofficial national dish of Laos. The ethnic Lao people of Northeastern (Isaan) Thailand, introduced this dish to the rest of Thailand and the world, which is why you may see this dish in Thai restaurants.
Laap can be made from any type of meat, though the name Nam-Tok refers to the medium rare doneness of beef. If using other types of meat such as chicken or pork, please cook these to well-done.
Roasted chickpeas are a wonderfully crunchy, healthy snack.
