My new favorite quick dinner is this:
Cous cous (made with butter, salt, and a little za’atar if you have it)
Crispy kale and/or cucumber and tomatoes (if in season)
Cashews or pistachios
I was describing this to a friend, and she said anything with a fried egg on top is called a “chef’s snack.” I’m not sure how widespread that terminology is, but I’m borrowing it!
Other things I’ve made recently: tahini cookies from Jerusalem, applesauce from some slightly bruised Granny Smith apples, mango juice pops (in an ice cube tray with popsicle sticks; when this batch runs out I’m going to take another mom’s suggestion and freeze yogurt-fruit smoothie the same way. Voila, frozen breakfast on a stick!). Ben made cranberry-orange scones for Teacher Appreciation Week, and key lime pie is in the near future.
What are your favorite summer recipes?
