Vegetable Fritters

You can use any combination of veggies for this recipe. I used:
2 small potatoes,peeled
1 med, carrot, peeled
2 med. zucchini

I ran it through my food processor on grate. Roll it in paper towels to get the excess moisture out. Put in bowl, and sprinkle about 2 Tbsp flour over it, and combine.
Add 3 eggs, and beat it lightly til covered.
Heat about 1/4 inch of iol in pan, and fry like pancakes to whatever size you want. Drain on paper.
We like these with homemade chunky tomato sauce.

One of my favorites:
A quick lunch

1 can chinese vegetables [small or large]
drain well
put in bowl and add 2-3 eggs[small can] or 5-6 eggs[large can]
beat really good. fry in a little oil, turning when browned.
make a packet of pork gravy mix, and add a few drops of soy sauce. This is the closest I can get to egg fu yung.

Seafood Bisque
difficulty-medium
prep time 15min
cook time 15 min

1c seafood stock (boullion)
4T butter
1T tomatoe paste
2T minced fresh onion
1 bayleaf
1 lg carrot
1 celery stalk
1t chopped garlic
1/2c sherry
1t thyme
2c heavy cream
2T flour
1/4t paprika
1 lb seafood (I use crab and shrimp)

Saute seafood in 2T of butter in pan.

Puree carrot, celery, onion, garlic and add to seafood in pan. Cook for 5 minutes (saute)

sprinkle flour over mixture and cook 5 more mins then dump mixture into a pot. Turn pot on low.

Pour sherry into hot pan and deglaze the pan, get all the stuff stuck on the pan off and dump all of that into the pot also.

Add all spices, remaining butter, cream and stir until it thickens.

Once thick, add tomatoe paste.
Thats it, its done. If you let it sit overnight in the frig, it thickens and gels, so you can add another cup or two of milk, cream or 1/2 and 1/2, it makes it go further and doesnt change the flavor.

* I put the shrimp and crab thru the food processor for a second so its not large pieces. I do the crab first than add the shrimp so they are pea sized and the crab is rice sized.

It is beyond devine!! Tastes amazing. I make it for my toys for tots christmas parties every year, and I used to make one of those large oval crockpots full, I also serve a huge dinner with ham and turkey, they past two years I have made 3 crock pots full and only a turkey breast, and still have turkey leftover cause everyone is eating two or three bowls of soup with bread.

This year I will keep it easy and just make the soup and bread with a salad instead of the full spread.

Thanks for this, Flav. Where do you get your seafood stock and where does it come in on the recipe? Am guessing that it's simmering while the seafood and veggies are cooking and added to it?

They don't have seafood stock at my grocery if it's with the regular bouillon stock, but see where it can be bought online. Maybe I'm not looking in the right area of the grocery?

There was a recipe for it, but if I cook fish heads and shrimp shells, it's going to detract considerably from enjoying this nice recipe. 8)

Cooking some old-timey sharecropper food.

Neckbones, cabbage and potatoes.

In a Large Pot, cook 2-3 pounds of pork neck bones for 2-3 hrs on med. high heat. When neck bones are done, remove from the broth, add 1 med. cabbage that has been cored and cut up into 1/4's. Stir and let come back to a med. high boil. Cook until done about 1 hour, cut up about 4-5 large potatoes, and 1/4 them. When neck bones are cool enough to handle, remove all the MEAT from the bones and shred it with your fingers into a bowl, return meat to the broth. Throw the bones and any extraneous stuff away like the excess you find like gristle, fat, etc... cook for about 10 mins, then add your potatoes and cook for 20-30 mins more. Turn off the heat and let it sit for about 20 mins. Add salt and black pepper to taste.

Serve it with sliced tomatoes or cucumbers sprinkled with vinegar and salt,black pepper. Home made biscuits and sweet iced tea.

mmm.

I love sautee-ing Bell peppers. (red, yellow, orange) heck, you can bake/Grill them as well!
and then topping them off with some feta cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic salt to taste. :D


also,

fill a soft shell tortilla with cottage cheese, salsa, a bit of sour cream, green bell pepper, shredded cheese (I like mozzarella) and jalapeños. top it off with some more shredded cheese. pop that in the microwave (or oven) with some plastic wrap over the dish.
cook that for a few minutes. and BAM

My cherry tomato plant went crazy in June and I had more tomatoes than I knew what to do with, so I kind of created this on the fly. It may sound heavy with the ham and cream, but its surprisingly light and summery because the noodles aren't drowning in sauce.

That's just the way I learned to cook-I rarely use recipes, and if I do they're just a starting point for my creativity. I love cooking!

If you cant find it in the food store, you can buy a can of the baby shrimp that are near the tuna and whiz them and the juice from them thru the blender, add water to get the right amount. I use better than bullion bases. They are near the bullion cubes and it comes in a jar, you scoop out about a tsp which equals enough for a cup. These are the best bases ever for seafood, beef, chicken etc...

Phillipino Chicken

2 lbs chicken thighs
1 T olive oil
1/2 c water
1/2 c white vinegar
1/2 c soy sauce
2 bay leaves
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T freshly ground black pepper
1 red chili pepper, sliced (optional)
1/4 c toasted unsweetend shredded coconut (optional)

Remove skin from chicken, then rinse and pat dry with paper towels. In a large skillet brown chicken on all sids in hot oil.

Once the chicken is evenly browned, add water, vinegar, soy sauce, bay leaves, garlc and black pepper to skillet. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken and place in covered dish to keep warm.

Bring remaining liquid to a boil, uncovered, and continue sirring, until it has the consistancy of chocolate syrup. This takes about 5 minutes.

Drizzle a spoonful over each chicken thigh and sprinkle with chili pepper and coconut shavings.


I always serve this on top of coconut rice.


Coconut Rice

2 cans coconut milk (can be found with asian foods)
2 cans water
2 cans instant white rice

Bring 2 cans coconut milk and 2 canfulls of water to a boil. Once boiling add 2 canfulls of instant white rice and stir vigorously until all rice is moistened. Cover, remove from heat and let sit for approx 5 mins.

Place spoonful of rice on plate. Rest chicken thigh on top of rice and drizzle sauce over rice and chicken, followed by red chilis and coconut flakes.

Now thats something new and different for me to try. I dont normally cook with instant rice, have you ever made it with regular rice?

mmm.

I love sautee-ing Bell peppers. (red, yellow, orange) heck, you can bake/Grill them as well!
and then topping them off with some feta cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic salt to taste. :D


also,

fill a soft shell tortilla with cottage cheese, salsa, a bit of sour cream, green bell pepper, shredded cheese (I like mozzarella) and jalapeños. top it off with some more shredded cheese. pop that in the microwave (or oven) with some plastic wrap over the dish.
cook that for a few minutes. and BAM

IT'S ENCHILADA TIME! 5a

That does sound good. I used to make a feta brushetta with green, red, and yellow or orange peppers diced with black kalamata olives, red onion and feta with balsalmic vinegar and olive oil. Put that on bread and oh baby....

I am not a fan of beets, but I know a few who read this thread are. I also think my mom would like this recipe so I am going to copy and paste it to her. Thanks
