SRC: Savory Fig-Chevre Truffles


It's time for Group B's Secret Recipe Club July reveal. This month I was assigned to Jane's Adventures in Dinner a blog written by - you got it! - Jane.


Jane loves food, loves to cook and, "a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away [she] trained as a chef." Gosh, I remember those "other lifetime careers." But she still feeds everyone with whom she comes into contact and throws lots of fun parties. Her husband calls her "the food pusher." She can push food my way anytime!

I seriously had to stop myself from sticking a fork in my monitor for many of her posts. I've been following Jane's adventures for awhile, as our culinary circles have collided in other cooking ventures, but it was great fun to actually sit down and explore her blog for awhile. I was intrigued by her Bacon Maple CocktailCoq au Vin Skewers, Chicken Curry Muffins, Saffron Orange Tapioca Pudding, and her Coconut Squash Soup. Those will all be finding their way onto my table soon.

But what I ended up picking for the SRC reveal today is a version of her Savory Truffles. I had made a version earlier - Savory Red, White, & Bleu Truffles* - but when friends gave me some fresh figs from their tree, it was a sign to make it again! Done.


Ingredients
  • 1/2 C chevre
  • 1 fresh fig,diced
  • 1 T parmesan
  • 1/2 t chilli paste
  • fresh figs for serving

Procedure
Halve your fresh figs for serving and gently scoop out the flesh. Mix the fig flesh with the rest of the ingredients, form into small balls that will fit into your figs. Press the balls into the figs and serve immediately.

*Here are the Savory Red, White, & Bleu Truffles I made with inspiration from Jane...these are my new go-to for easy, impressive appetizers!

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
