Garlic and Dijon Brussels Sprouts

Garlic and Mustard Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Garlic and Mustard Roasted Brussels Sprouts

These sprouts and I go way back. In fact, they were my very first post on Em Hungry 1.0 more than 5 years ago, and they were the second most viewed recipe on the site! (Due to one loyal reader and cook, haha. Moms are the best.) At any rate, I figured it was time to share them here, and with pictures this time. Continue reading “Garlic and Dijon Brussels Sprouts”

Creamy Carrot Soup

Creamy Carrot Soup

Creamy Carrot Soup

Other than perhaps my family’s chocolate chip cookies, this is the recipe that I have made the very most in my life. This is one of my favorite soups. And yet, I have struggled to find the words to present it to you properly. This soup is kind of like a favorite T-shirt – a little old-fashioned, maybe, but super comforting and reliable. It’s the soup I go to the most, and unlike my favorite T-shirt, it will never wear out. Continue reading “Creamy Carrot Soup”

In Which an Alaskan Pollock and a Bangladeshi Chapati Travel Together to Latin America and Have a Marvelous Time

I admit I don’t know what to call these. In my mind, they’re Indian fish tacos, being neither authentically Indian nor authentically tacos. So, maybe they’re “Indian” Fish “Tacos” (not Indian “Fish” Tacos) or maybe they’re just Hipster Fish Sandwiches. Whatever. At any rate, please eat them because they are delicious, and then maybe you can tell me what their proper name is.

This dish came about because of a “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” scenario. Just replace the word lemons with “disgustingly under-ripe papaya” and the word lemonade with “chutney!” and you’ll have a good idea of what happened.

Curry-Roasted Cauliflower

Curry-Roasted Cauliflower

Perhaps you’ve noticed, perhaps you haven’t, but cauliflower seems to be having a heyday lately: one can easily find cauliflower masquerading as rice, mashed potatoes, steak, and even pizza crust. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and I have even enjoyed sampling some of these cauliflower concoctions, but sometimes it’s nice to eat a food that’s not trying to be something it’s not.
