Whenever I have an upset stomach, I make this dish. It’s easy to make, as all ingredients are boiled and then tossed together.
I am trying to warm up to quinoa (with little success, so far). I got this recipe from the President’s Choice mobile app and used a bit less cheese than recommended. The recipe is fairly simple, and since the link is above, I won’t summarize it here. Suffice it to say you need quinoa, leeks, bell peppers, eggs and some cheese.
Whenever I run out of food and I am at home, I take out a piece of salmon from the freezer (or buy one, usually from Superstore). All I have to do is prepare a good marinade, throw the salmon in the oven, and make sure I don’t over cook it. I like this marinade because it brings together three flavors: mustard, yogurt and dill.
Frozen mackerel pack from Superstore – around $9 + Simple recipe = great lunch/ dinner! While traveling, I had the chance to eat this really great grilled mackerel. It was so simple, yet so delicious, that I was determined to replicate it at home. Alas, I can’t BBQ – but if you do have a BBQ, try it grilled.
Another easy to make side dish: peel, cut, throw into the oven and eat. It takes 10 minutes to prepare the veggies and around 45 minutes to bake in the oven. You can add pretty much whatever veggies are in season and you can play with the herbs. For extra flavor, add Feta cheese (here’s another version of this recipe).
Chicken liver is not a favorite item on the menu in Calgary. Maybe it’s because people feel internal organs – such as liver, heart, kidney – are somewhat disgusting. Well, I disagree – some can be very tasty, and although you may not want to make them a permanent staple in your diet (high in cholesterol), you may still want to enjoy them every now and then to diversify your menu.
