No home kitchen should be without these basic herbs and spices that can transform ordinary meals into spectacular culinary adventures.
Winner winner, chicken dinner! Forego the basic salt-and-pepper oven-baked white meat. These chicken breast recipes will have you falling in love with this bird all over again.
This childhood favorite is so easy to make from scratch – no need to use a canned soup as a starter. We make ours with fresh chopped vegetables and a simple base of flour, broth and cream. And the dough? We skip it and use packaged phyllo dough instead; simply scrunch it and brush it with oil before baking.
Quinoa doesn’t have to be relegated to being a base, it can also be a topper! Here, it’s broiled until crisp then sprinkled over the salad.
Those who tend to shy away from cooked cabbage may become converts thanks to braising, as it brings out the crucifer’s natural sweetness. Couple that with this flavorful sauce, which gets richness and depth from searing an onion in coconut oil, and you’ve got a side that’ll take center stage.
Saffron adds such a wonderful perfume and color to dishes. Here I have gently poached some chicken and vegetables in a saffron-infused stock, then added extra layers of flavors with the Italian classic gremolata, adding orange zest for extra aroma.
