Two New Spins on Two Old FavoritesPosted: March 16, 2010
Threw together a pretty quick dinner tonight, but it involved a couple of experiments that worked really well. First of all, we had some cooked blacked eyed peas in the fridge that Tina threw in the pressure cooker a couple days ago. I decided to use those to make some pseudo-refried beans that didn’t incorporate Mexican flavors. I caramelized a chopped onion in some olive oil, then when they were almost done I threw in some diced fresh rosemary (left over from some soup I made last week – not sure if it got captured on a receipt, but it was $1), let that cook for a bit, and then threw in the beans. Let those guys fry for a bit and served over rice – delicious.
Along with that stuff, I made some roasted some brussels sprouts using our usual method, but in the end decided they needed something more. Ended up mixing some sriracha and nayonaise together for a creamy-spicy dressing. Highly recommended.
No photos since we didn’t have time for nice presentation, but it all tasted great.
