Beef cooked with coffee, butter, and a berbere spice blend until tender and served on tacos with a refreshing cantaloupe, mint, and radish salsa.
Mashed avocado, a soft boiled egg, scallion, and chiles on top of a crispy large tater tot. Like avocado toast, but totst.
Thick rice noodles are tossed with kale, cauliflower, radish, banana peppers, sesame oil, ginger, and soy sauce. Works great as a side for your next bbq.
Tater tots topped with crispy pork and all the usual banh mi ingredients.
Whether you are a lobster roll purist, or a banh mi purist I think we can all get on board with this amazing sandwich.
I wanna grow tomatoes on the front steps. Sunflowers, bean sprouts, sweet corn and radishes. This is what Courtney Barnett is planning in her song Avant Gardener before her day takes a bad turn. I imagine that things got better and she was able to plant that garden eventually so the neighbors would stop thinking that they have a meth lab in the house. Then one day after the garden grew, she made this sweet salad with the harvest.
The last time I went to the Somerville Winter Market (FYI – there are 2 more Saturdays before it’s over for the year!) I was lucky enough to find Pork Jowl at the Austin Brothers Farm stand. I have a history with Austin Brothers, I actually drove out to their farm in Belchertown, MA to buy pork belly when I made my own panchetta. I knew I had to buy the jowl and figure out what to do with it later. Don’t you love impulse buys? A craving for pork buns a few days later was all I needed to get going with this recipe.
The sandwich dips series returns! Banh mi dip has been in my head since the series began, but I was having a really hard time trying to find an appropriate situation where it would go over well. For most occasions I attend, it isn’t exactly ideal to show up with a plate of chicken livers. I was so glad to finally find some people who were interested in trying out the banh mi dip because it came out better than I had even imagined.
