This dish was inspired by finding purple potatoes and papayas and Chinese cabbage (which is a softer less bitter cabbage) but if you can’t find these items here is a list of substitutes to still be able to make this dish: Instead of purple potatoes use: regular potatoes or sweet potatoes. Instead of Chinese cabbage use regular cabbage. Instead of asparagus use sugar snap peas or green beans. Instead of shallots: use regular onions.
Koftas are meatballs with spices and onions that are most popular in Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines. It is important to buy a fattier meat (whether it is lamb or beef) so they don’t get dried out in the oven. They will create a lot of liquid which is delicious and can be serve on top of rice, or dipped into with bread. I like to serve these with grilled bread and tachina but you can eat them on their own, with pasta, last minute into a tomato based soup, or with tomato sauce.
This is the easiest and most delicious way to make glazed salmon! You will make the recipe again and again because of the flavors and little prep and cleanup! If you like things spicy be sure to chop the chili pepper at the end, it add such incredible flavor! (If you like medium spicy, remove the seeds, and if you don’t like spicy at all, discard it after its cooked)
This recipe is so easy and leaves you with the perfect asparagus. They are vibrantly green, crunchy, sweet and spicy. Just to warn you, there will be no leftovers!
This is the perfect summer salad! Of course if you can’t find white asparagus you can substitute green ones, or sugar snap peas, or green beans into this recipe!
