The Food Matters Project: More Rhubarb Creations

And the rhubarb download the face of the rhubarb shortage, or aversion, everyone got very, very creative. I think this is the last of the group. If I missed anyone, a thousand apologies. I'll circle back and catch anyone I missed later this week.

Several bloggers cooked, but decided not to record their experience. Better left forgotten, I suppose. To those folks, thanks for trying it!

Again, I just wanted to say THANK YOU. I am in awe of your culinary fortitude and am honored to be part of this creative group.

Lexi from Lexi's Kitchen made exactly what the original recipe was: fish in rhubarb sauce. And, even more impressively, she made a savory rhubarb-lover out of her husband. Nice job! I love that she added fish sauce to the dish. I am writing that one down for when I cook this recipe again this week.

Maryfran of Franny Cakes doesn't like seafood and couldn't find rhubarb, so she went a completely different direction and blogged about a warm broccoli + quinoa salad. Yum!

Jen from the team at Small College Kitchen made fish in caramel sauce with tangy fruit salad and rice. This sounds and looks delish.

Sara of Simply Whole Kitchen opted to bake, instead of braise, her fish and served it with a fruit salsa. So pretty and, I'm certain, delicious.

Alissa of Big Eats Tiny Kitchen braised chicken in a rhubarb-honey sauce for a Sweet and Sour Rhubarb dish. Oh, my! If only I could stick chopsticks into my screen and get a piece of that lovely dish.

Again, if I missed anyone, the omission was unintentional. I'll check back later this week and post any creations that I didn't catch this time around. Thank you, all, again for your efforts and fab culinary creations. It's been an adventure this week.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
