Parsnips and carrots pair wonderfully for this healthy and delicious puree!
Parsnip is a very interesting root vegetable, it has a mild taste, slightly sweet, it is rich in vitamins and minerals, contains a lot of fibers and is poor in calories.
This puree is delicious and very flavorful, I also liked the texture that did not come out too smooth, it will remain a bit grainy. For a smoother puree, you should add 1 potato.
This parsnip and carrot puree is an interesting side, with a new flavor that I trust will be liked by most. The fact that it is poor in calories and rich in fibers adds to the pleasure of savoring it.
Parmesan shortbread cookies for your appetizers, with a delicious goat cheese dip!
This is a very quickly made savory cookie, dump all ingredients in your food processor, assemble the dough in a log, chill and bake. And you can vary the cheeses and herbs in so many ways.
I have a mold for making my cookies in the form of spoons, fancy, isn’t it? But you can just cut your log in square cookies of about 1/2 inch thick.
About the goat cheese dip, if you do not like goat cheese, just leave it out. I used thyme leaves for the cookies but I do not recommend to use them for the dip because they are a bit thick and hard and they do not blend well, I used a soft mix of dry herbs, you can use parsley, basil or even tarragon.
Chicken Kiev, chicken breast stuffed with garlic butter, so delicious!
Chicken Kiev is one the most delicious chicken recipes, very flavorful. It is not a quick recipe as it needs some preparation, some freezing but the result is overwhelming.
To make this recipe, you will need to pound the chicken breasts rather thinly or you might prefer to ask your butcher to do it for you.
You will make a garlic and parsley butter, place it in the center of the larger end of one chicken breast and wrap it like you would for a spring roll, then wrap it in plastic film and chill 15/20 minutes just to set its shape.
You will coat the chicken rolls in breadcrumbs and chill them again for a few minutes to ensure that the seams be well sealed. Finally you will deep fry the rolls before baking them.
All this prep/chill process is meant to keep the garlic butter enclosed into the chicken.
You can serve chicken Kiev with any sides you like, I chose to serve it with store-bought gnocchi and green beans quickly sautéed into some of this wonderful garlic butter I had kept.
Baked cod with mixed vegetables in a light curry and lemon sauce, delicious!
Cod is an awesome fish, it has a mild flavor and can be cooked a thousand delicious ways.
Here I brushed my cod loin with olive oil, seasoned it with salt and pepper, covered with a few fennel stalks and baked it at 400°F (200°C) for just 12 minutes and it was perfectly cooked, how quick is that?
I served it with a mix of fresh fennels, tomatoes and sautéed potatoes and a creamy curry and lemon sauce, very flavorful.
