#HotSummerEats: Garlic Goodness Bean Salad #sponsor


Here we are at day two of my Hot Summer Eats event. As promised, I will be sharing a grilled recipe, a non-lettuce salad, and/or a cocktail. So, for the non-salad offering today, here's my recipe for a garlicky bean salad...with a little help from one of our event sponsors: Intensity Academy Gourmet Sauces. Intensity Academy's Garlic Goodness Hot Sauce added the perfect amount of heat and flavor to my bean salad. I use dried beans, but you can certainly speed it up by using canned beans.

Ingredients
  • 1 pound beans (I used dried Moro beans. Click here for how to cook dried beans.)
  • 4 onions, peeled and sliced
  • 1 T butter
  • 1 t local honey
  • juice from 1 organic lemon
  • zest from 1 organic lemon
  • olive oil
  • 1 to 2 T Intensity Academy's Garlic Goodness Hot Sauce
  • 1 T fresh herbs (I used parsley)

Procedure
In a large flat-bottom pan, melt the butter over a low heat. Add the onions and cook, over low heat, until caramelized. Mine took approximately 1 hour. Place the cooked beans in a large mixing bowl. Add in the caramelized onions. Stir in the honey, lemon juice, lemon zest, hot sauce, and herbs. Add enough olive oil to make it glossy. Toss to coat. Serve chilled.


Thanks, Intensity Academy Gourmet Sauces* - just one of our #HotSummerEats sponsors - for ingredients used in this recipe. You can find Intensity Academy: on the web, on facebook, on twitter, on instagram, and on pinterest.


*Full Disclosure: I received a bottle of Garlic Goodness from Intensity Academy for participating in #HotSummerEats. Feel free to use whatever garlicky hot sauce you have on-hand. I received no additional compensation for this post; all comments are 100% accurate and 100% my own.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa

Learning About Chablis, A Compelling Label, and Gougères #PureChablis #Winophiles #Sponsored
