Weekend Herb Blogging #249 – Round-up
I was fortunate to host Weekend Herb Blogging this week, in which food bloggers share their recipes featuring any herb, fruit, vegetable, nut, grain, seed, flower or plant. It was initially created by Kalyn but now hosted by Haalo. Here are the tasty dishes from this week:
Jen from Tastes of Home, who hails from both San Diego and Malaysia, brings us a Malaysian specialty with stinky beans (petai) and shrimp in a chili paste. Thank goodness stinky beans don’t smell bad!
Johanna, a Food Junkie from Athens, brings us a Greek Potato Pie (Patatopita), which she described as a very succulent Mediterranean version of rösti.
The lovely Joanne from Eats Well With Others also went Indian-style with a beautiful coconut curried tofu, eggplant and kohlrabi with green jasmine rice.
Peggy from The Blog That Ate Manhattan teaches us all about capers, the immature buds from the caper bush, and shows us how to incorporate them into a Chicken Salad with Capers and Lemon. She has also compiled a list of other tasty dishes with capers. bring on the caper love!
Esra from New York with her lovely blog Carte du Jour, brings us a tasty and beautiful dish that uses end of summer zucchinis, sliced into thin ribbons: Zucchini and Yellow Squash Ribbons with Daikon, Oregano, and Basil.
Haalo from Cook (almost) Anything At Least Once always has interesting foods to highlight during WHB. This week is no exception with her Roasted Tamarillo Fool. What is tamarillo? Who have to ask the Kiwis! It certainly looks delicious!
And while I have been cooking up a lot of great Middle eastern and Mediterranean dishes, my contribution to this week’s Weekend Herb Blogging was an All-Natural Chocolate Brownie Power Nibble made with dates and cocoa.
