Shrimp and spinach bastilla

Bastilla de crevettes et épinards   I have made chicken bastilla quite often but never with shrimps. Originally, I was thinking of a vegetarian version, then I thought shrimps would be a good idea. Bastilla is a Moroccan dish usually filled with meat or fish/seafood and wrapped in filo dough, [...]

Polenta cakes with spinach, feta and herbs, roasted red pepper coulis

Sformatini di polenta con spinaci, feta e erbe, coulis di peperoni arrosto I am not sure how this recipe was made alive, I kept looking at my two packs of polenta, thinking I need to use them at some point. I love polenta, I just never think of making it. It’s one of those things that you need [...]

Romanesco soup with Brussels sprouts and spinach topped with smoked salmon

Soupe de romanesco aux choux de Bruxelles et épinards, éffilochée de saumon I love soups and can eat them every day for one month, or I hate soup and cannot eat them for one month. We have a love/hate relationship depending on the moment. As we say in French “c’est tout ou rien!”  (it’s either [...]

Smoke salmon, broccoli purée and spinach timbale, dill sauce

Timbale de purée de brocoli, épinards et saumon fumé, sauce aneth I had some broccoli that I needed to use, and I did not feel like eating them in pieces, so I figured if I made purée, what else could I combine them with. One thing led to one other and one thought led to one other, so here it is, [...]

Pea and spinach soup with mint, poached egg

Soupe de pois frais et épinards à la menthe et oeuf poché Yesterday the lunch was light since we had been invited by our neighbor’s for the Chinese new year to a restaurant. Usually, if I know my dinner will be more substantial than usual, I balance it out with a light lunch. After all, it’s all [...]

Almost on the islands – Shrimps on roasted sweet potatoes and wilted spinach with vanilla lime sauce

Presque sur les îles – Crevettes sur lit de patates douces grillées et épinards, sauce vanille, citron vert et lait de coco It’s seems like a long time since I prepared a savory dish with coconut or vanilla, but lately I have been thinking about vanilla and spices, so I guess I am ready to take a [...]

Oeuf cocotte with spinach, shiitake, prosciutto and truffle oil

Oeufs cocotte aux épinards, shiitake, jambon de parme et huile de truffe noire I cooked a dinner last week for a lovely couple who wanted their dinner theme to be white Alba truffles. Out of six courses, three had truffles in it. The smell brought me back to my childhood….My father used to go look [...]

A different kind of pesto from Sicily – Homemade spinach tagliatelle with pesto alla trapanese

Un altro tipo di pesto Siciliano – Linguine agli spinaci con pesto alla trapanese You can really tell someone is Italian by the quantity of pasta they eat…my family eats pasta almost every day…unlike me…I eat it once in a while, which can be a good reason to question my Italian nationality, let’s [...]

Another risotto story – Saffron risotto with dandelions, spinach and shiitake

Un’altra storia di risotto – Risotto allo zafferano, tarassaco, spinaci e funghi shiitake Other names for dandelion or dente di leone, or even tarassaco, piscialetto (pee in bed) in Italian, pissenlit, dent de lion in French – that wonderful bitter green that grows into a beautiful yellow flower. [...]

Let's get back in shape – Grilled sweet potato and spinach salad with blood orange and candied ginger vinaigrette

On se refait une petite santé? – Salade de patates douces grillées et pousses d’épinards – vinaigrette d’orange sanguine et gingembre confit I am not sure where I had this for the first time…maybe in Boston (since I lived there at some point in my life before moving to San Francisco) at a [...]
