I love finding recipes from around the world that use familiar ingredients and offer new flavor combinations. If I can use colorful ingredients from my garden, all the better!
A beautiful aromatic dry curry with bright, fresh colors and flavors that go well with a wide variety of dishes.
A favorite veggie curry with surprisingly complex flavors for such simple ingredients.
A great end-of-summer dish with a rich sauce full of fresh tomatoes – it will only taste better if you happen to make it ahead or have leftovers!
On the principle that many curries taste better the next day anyway, the Indian menu we served this weekend was composed primarily of dishes we made ahead.
This dish is creamy, flavorful, and colorful – a great fall comfort food. It’s easy to adapt with different vegetables and vary the spice level to match your taste. Plus it’s cheap!
A spicy lentil stew flavored with Italian sausage and rich with veggies – easy to do as a make-ahead recipe in a crock-pot if you want less fuss.
Flavorful, colorful, easy to make – easy to see why it’s a family favorite. A Spanish sofrito of tomatoes, peppers and onions are baked with the chicken & rice to make an easy one-dish meal that also freezes well.
Our favorite roast chicken recipe is also the simplest – 4 ingredients, quick prep, easy to make ahead and so fragrant and delicious!
If you want the flavor of real lemons, something that’s satisfyingly tangy and light, this is an easy option you can make anytime you have a little space open in your freezer.
I do not know how authentic this recipe is, but I do know it is delicious and versatile and great for using up veggies in stir fries or as dip. We also have a pork meatball recipe that this goes well with as a weird Asian “fusion” meatballs and pasta option. So do what you…
The flavor of this is as bright and refreshing as the color, made of fruit juices & herbs with no cream or fat. Also, it’s really easy to put together in the freezer (no ice cream maker required, a fork & pan will do).
