Round-Up: Weekend Herb Blogging #231

Posted in Events/Round-Ups by janet @ the taste space on May 3, 2010

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.

Without further ado, here are our yummy submissions this week:

A tantalizing sandwich layering  roasted eggplant, zucchini, tomato, mushrooms

and Halloumi cheese with a balsamic and honey dressing.

Bananas (or traditionally plantains) are dredged in brown sugar, wrapped tightly

in an egg roll wrapper and fried until golden and crispy. How sweet this sounds!

Turon (Philippine Banana Spring Roll)

TS and JS at eatingclub vancouver

A hot miso broth  is whisked into eggs and topped with wakame and shiitake

mushrooms to create a milky breakfast soup perfect for any time of day.

Breakfast Miso Soup

Anna from Morsels & Musings

Sambuca-laced raw almond and hazelnut cookies from Tuscany

go the extra mile.

Cantuccini (Typical Tuscan Cookies)

Cinzia from Cindystar

Lake Garda, Italy


Fresh quince gets poached in a sugary syrup for 6 hours or more

and exudes its wonderful aroma.

Slow Poached Quince

Haalo of Cook (Almost) Anything at Least Once


Chopped nira, bamboo shoots and dried shiitake mushrooms are the secret

ingredients to perfect Japanese spring roll gluttony.
