Piña Colada Coleslaw #SundaySupper


For the love of coconut! Because National Piña Colada Day is on July 10th, the Sunday Supper tastemakers are celebrating with all things coconut! This event is hosted by Constance of Cosmopolitan Cornbread.

All Things Coconut...
Great Starts
Dive in with Sides and Appetizers
Coco-Nutty Main Dishes
"Col-lots-a" Desserts
Sweet to Sip Beverages

My Offering...
While I was tempted to come up with a fun twist on a piña colada, my savory-loving side took over and I created a somewhat savory sidedish. I am sharing a Piña Colada Coleslaw made with dried pineapple, coconut aminos, and some rich coconut cream. Enjoy!


Ingredients
  • 2 C shredded green cabbage
  • 1 fennel, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • ½ C dried pineapple chunks
  • ½ C toasted coconut chips
  • ½ C coconut cream (not coconut milk)
  • ½ C mayonnaise
  • 1 T coconut aminos
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper

Procedure
Place the cabbage and fennel in a large mixing bowl. In a smaller mixing bowl, whisk the coconbut cream, mayonnaise, and coconut aminos together to form a smooth dressing. Toss the dressing into the salad. Gently fold in the pineapple and coconut. Chill for at least 30 minutes before serving. Season to taste with salt and pepper as needed.

    1. You can also use soy sauce. Coconut aminos are a clean-eating version of soy sauce 😁

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!

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

#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
