Or boil it in water for a 30 seconds to draw out the bitter taste.  I love stir fry bitter melon, chicken, with black bean sauce.


I'm going to look into that, medicinal foods really interest me. I have heard of bitter melon but that's about it.



I made another pizza tonight, however it's my first "baby bok choy pie":



Also includes Spanish onions, goat feta, and kalamatas.

Obviously I've been on a salad kick lately. That will stop...


Imported tuna fillets (tuna in a jar), beets, and greens with Italian dressing with a little bit of sour cream.

That looks quite interesting. I've never worked with chili extract before. It seems like it would make for a more consistent result than chopping up peppers, though you'd probably have to make gargantuan quantities of whatever you're cooking in order to dilute the heat.

Or you could measure the extract in drops, rather that in fractions of a spoonful. It seems like it would be a great way to preserve the harvest of one's chili plant!

Hey, y'all. I don't know how many of you are into the Super Bowl but even if you you are or you are not, here are some great recipes for Super Bowl party dishes. If you're a vegetarian perhaps you could forgo the meat and use something else. Anyway, these look like fun endulgements (is that a word?) to make or to just look at.

A simple cucumber salad with gochugang lime sauce.

Three-bean soup with kale and poached egg. The yoke looks like lava when the egg is cut.

I then added a few drops of habenero hot sauce. Yow!

The soup really looks good.

Coming back to the beetroot salad...I use a sweet sour dressing and lots of caraway seeds in it.

Breakfast experiment. Scrambled eggs with green pepper and onion on a collard green(s). Red stuff is rooster sauce (sriracha).

Next time, no green pepper and some black beans and homemade salsa. Maybe some rice, I haven't decided. I'm still working out the details. The main goal was to test out the collard green as a wrap, and it works spectacularly. It's almost like a giant over-sized spinach leaf.

I also really like goat cheese on my eggs. I might have to come up with a version that makes use of that.. and maybe some chorizo of some sort :) Maybe that will just be an omelette.



Upcoming: Roasted red pepper and eggplant sandwiches with parmesan and a goat milk brie.

^ That looks very healthy. Did you eat the collard green leaf raw?


Baked chicken wings tossed in lemon-lime butter sauce.

Cole slaw with a sauce made with mayo, lime, and rooster sauce (sriracha).

Both of those look so good.

Yes, the collard green was raw. Now that I think about it.. I wonder what blanching it would do to the texture. It's just a bit tougher than spinach raw, if I could make it slightly less tough that would be great. I could also maybe season the water I used to blanch it, dunno if it would add anything or not. I'm down to experiment though. I'd like to perfect this breakfast wrap idea :)
