Tomatillo Risotto Appetizer Recipe Recipe

This is my take on a Mexican-inspired risotto flavored with tomatillo. I prepared salsa verde and added it to creamy risotto. I spooned the risotto onto blue tortilla chips and topped them with salsa verde and crumbled queso fresco as a reminder of the flavor.

I recently received a goodie box of a selection of Queso Del Valle and Karoun cheeses. I’m a huge fan of their products and with Cinco De Mayo just around the corner, I’ll be sharing recipes all week using the cheeses. I’m not a master of authentic Mexican cuisine, but I love Mexican ingredients and flavors and use them often in fusion dishes like this one.

Vegetarian Chili Verde Recipe

Comfort food is usually synonymous with a high calorie count, but that doesn't always have to be the case. I've served vegetarian bean chili several times in the past for my husband Lulu and he loves this dish. Our family jokingly calls it "chili non carne." Even an avowed carnivore like me must admit it's pretty satisfying.

For a little change, instead of using regular red tomatoes, I prepared the chili with fresh tomatillos (also known as husk tomatoes).  I mixed tomatillos with Anaheim and Serrano chiles, green bell peppers, lime, garlic, store-bought soy chorizo and fresh pineapple. This recipe couldn't be easier!

Sardines with Sauce Verte

03.01.12 by Jackie

After giving birth, my doctor reminded me on multiple occasions to get enough calcium in my diet to support my own bone health. Of course, drinking milk and eating dairy products such as cheese and yogurt goes without saying. Another calcium supplement I like every now and then is sardines. They are tasty and very nutritious. I've always loved eating the bones, which are an excellent source of calcium. Unlike swordfish or King mackerel, sardines have a much lower mercury content. 

In this recipe I served the sardines on a bed of Parmesan crisps and flavored them with sauce verte. The green sauce is a very pleasant complement to the fish. It's made of green olives, capers, cornichons (tiny French gherkin pickles), lemon, garlic, Dijon mustard and extra-virgin olive oil. Next time you're looking for a snack packed with omega-3's and lean protein, you might consider making yourself this sardine treat.
