This month of March has been capricious and leaves us just a Friday, so that tomorrow will receive April with the joy that always brings to wake up on Saturday. While we finish adjust to DST and spring shines in its splendor, we can go planning the first meal of the month. For that we have, as always, with ideas from our friends at Directo a Mexico palate, that always leave us very appetizing recipes to get out of the rut.
To close the month on this occasion we find perfect dishes for the weekend, as a rich easy pizza or a gratin suggestive that combines ingredients from land and sea. We also have a good idea to take advantage of leftovers of chicken and cream of vegetables with a very special touch. If you want to know the details of these and other recipes, I invite you to continue reading to be taking note.
We can start with a good idea for breakfast or lunch in spring, berries and spinach smoothie, healthy and perfect to load up on vitamins without complications. Good thing about milkshakes is prepare at one time and they can be taken anywhere, making it seem ideal for those lazy mornings, weekend, or take a walk in the Sun.
The slices of Apple with peanut, toasted oats and chocolate cream are specially designed for children, but I assure you that they will like them all at home. It’s a pecking fast to prepare perfect for breakfast or to recharge energies throughout the day, full of healthy nutrients and with a good combination of crunchy and creamy textures. It is also ideal for sportsmen.
We continue with the suggestive cream green beans with a touch of vanilla, a bowl of spoon light but nourishing perfect for these days of spring. Which temperatures rise? Therefore we take it warm or cool to cool the food. Does another spring storm? Warm we sit beautifully, and is suitable for vegans because it is enriched with tofu instead of dairy. By the way, the green beans are green beans, better fine and round, very seasonal.
Before moving on to more complete dishes we stop at an idea of snack – or snack, as they say over there – great for the weekend, the flags of sausage and cheese, a recipe that will succeed if we organize meals on the terrace or in the garden. The first time I saw sausages fried in flag format, as if they were lollipops, was in some American movie, probably somewhere where the characters held the summer in a fair or amusement park. And if we make them at home?
Another proposed vegetarian for those seeking a different way of preparing vegetables are the lentils with goat cheese and Caramelized walnuts, a mixture of ingredients that I confess never would have occurred to me. I love the nuts but I think that with lentils do not I have combined them ever, much less the caramelized touch. Along with the goat cheese, I think that it is a very interesting idea and a good way to add nutrients to the dish.
We continue with dishes of lent already about to soak us for Easter, with the recipe of bass in tomato and pepper sauce and fish baked in a sweet sauce and Sriracha. The truth is that this proposal sauce looks delicious, can be great for giving joy to the most bland fish that sometimes we find at home, even will be scary to the typical frozen white fish that has only a little grace.
Another recipe with fish is that heads this post, the gratin of potatoes with fish and sausage. A sea and mountain, which may sound a bit strange but that, well regarded, should be more flavorful. Already the same Philippe encourages us to leave behind prejudices and try your recipe to verify that the combination of ingredients works swimmingly. Very Lenten it won’t, but one cannot deny its appetizing appearance.
We ended up with three alternatives to Lenten abstinence to poultry as the protagonist. I never tire of discovering new ways to take advantage of this bird in the kitchen, his versatility has virtually no limits. For example, the recipe for chicken breasts to the Hawaiian shows that you don’t have to complicate to exit the routine filling flavor this white meat. It is not a very suitable for diets, but safe dish that is great.
Also aires tropical is the Hawaiian pizza with chicken BBQ, extremely easy if you already have a purchased dough or list for use in the freezer. I know that there are major detractors of this pizza that do not support the pineapple in the dough, but I confess that does not seem so bad if we leave more Italian tradition. Finally we have a perfect dish to take advantage of leftovers, the pasta baked with chicken. Poultry much lends itself to be reused in recipes of this type, and they let you add quality protein to very different dishes.
No more I say goodbye because from our friends at Directo Al Paladar Mexico, at least for this month to which you are just a few hours. Solome remains to encourage them to return within seven days when he will take over in this one section of my coworkers. I want to find out which spring recipes will bring us next time, surely more than one sweet proposal.
